Hi folks! So you are a former PC user and just bought a Mac. How do you run virtual machines on your new Mac? Enter VMware Fusion! VMware fusion allows you to run Windows 7 in a VM on your Mac so you can run those apps that are only Windows capable. This is quite useful in office environments...

Hi folks! So I finally had a chance to try out Apple's version of videoconferencing called facetime. I have to say it's not bad. One of the limitations is that you can only use it on wireless. However despite that I have to say it's quite good. The downside? You can only use it on Apple. Oh...

Hi folks, so I finally get to chime in on the Flash fiasco with iPhone. Now that I have my iPhone 4, I have been doing a lot of web browsing with it. I have to say that the lack of flash hasn't been so bad that it makes me want to stop using the iPhone, but it has been annoying. I think as time...

Hi everyone, so you've bought that shiny new iPad and you want to share files. How do you do it? Apparently Apple has given us limited capability where that is concerned. I guess they're thinking if you just stick an Apple logo on something and put the letter "i" in front of it people will buy...

Hi folks, so hot off the presses, I got a chance to use an iPad! My buddy bought one and I thought i'd give it a quick try. For those of you that have been hiding under a rock, the iPad is Apple's answer to the tablet, and is essentially a big iPhone (IMHO). What would it be good for? Well...

Apple and Flash

Hi folks, so what's the deal with this? Apparently Steve Jobs has slammed Flash. Wow, I don't think that's a great decision. I understand they want the lock on the software market but why slam flash? Flash is all over the Internet and releasing devices that don't support it isn't going to help...

Hi folks! So how many of you own an iPhone? I don't yet but even I who am historically a BlackBerry user am sorely tempted to convert. Why is that? Because they are just so usable. There are so many great apps for so many things and the device itself is easy to use. Recently it's been reported...
