iPhone Aftermath

I just received my invitation to a "special event" that Apple is having on September 5th.  The rumor mill is wild with speculation about what might be announced.  Pretty much everyone thinks there will be new iPods.  It would not surprise me.  As I open the drawer marked iPod Graveyard in my office, I am ...

iLove my iPhone

As I have often said, Steve Jobs is the world's foremost expert in making me buy stuff I don't need with money I don't want to spend. In this regard, the 8GB iPhone is his ultimate achievement.

Making the Best of a Bad Situation

Making the Best of a Bad Situation

Outlook didn’t just crash, it crashed and burned.  Nobody I know had ever seen this kind of a problem before.  I called my IT guru and described the problem--dead silence on the other end of the phone.  This was bad, and I knew it was going to get worse.
