How To: Get rid of Safari’s Spinning Beach Ball

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

There’s dozens of reasons as to why you might be getting a spinning beach ball when visiting certain web pages in Safari, and there are also dozens of solutions you COULD try. I know this because I tried them all while trying to figure out why web pages in general, but Yahoo’s Pro Football Pick ’em and Amazon.com in particular, were giving me more beachballs than a British Rock Festival. Here’s what I did to solve MY problem: With Safari open, go to the top of your screen and click the word SAFARI Choose...

Amazing iPhone-themed Christmas Display makes you thankful you don’t live anywhere near this guy

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Warning: If you are prone to seizures, or if you have one of those “Keep Christ in Christmas” bumper stickers on your car, you may not want to watch this. For everyone else however, Scott McGregor’s 2015 iPhone-themed holiday lights are a truly wondrously nerdy feast for the eyes.

Review: flatOUT™ LED Lightning by Scosche (That’s right, I’m going to review a lightning cable.)

Thursday, September 3, 2015

If you’ve been a loyal Apple supporter/upgrader, odds are by now you have probably owned 4-5 Apple devices that utilize a Lightning cable to charge. And if you are a SMART Apple user, you have never ONCE paid the $19.00 (formerly $25) Apple charges for its cables, when dozens of 3rd party accessory makers sell theirs for about half that. As overpriced as Apple’s cables are, I’m about to go against every cheap bone in my body and recommend you consider dropping $19 on a lightning cable from Scosche. Their flatOUT™...

You’re buying an Apple Car, Swatch Steal’s Apple’s One More Thing, and Samsung tries to rip-off the iPad Pro before Apple even releases it

Sunday, August 23, 2015

Well, looks like you’re buying an Apple Car after all Assuming, that is, you’re one of those people who hates the “driving” part of driving your car. After months (or has it been years at this point?) of rumors swirling around the the possibility of Cupertino producing a self-driving electric car, Apple has reportedly hired former Tesla employee Jamie Carlson, a man whose speciality is “autonomous vehicle firmware”. That may not be enough evidence to get a guilty verdict in a court...

How NOT to clean your Apple gear

27D8CA0800000578-0-image-m-6_1429688632310

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. That is the lesson being learned by one cheating Japanese Apple fan after his (presumably EX) girlfriend sent him photos of all his Apple gear fully submerged in the bathtub, including his iMac. Now, of course this is tragic, and as much as I hate to see ANY Apple device submerged under water, I think we we really all should be focusing on is just how damn small that bathtub is! I can’t be positive which iMac model... Read More

Review: Seidio’s OBEX Waterproof iPhone case

FullSizeRender 6

I’ve has a standalone waterproof Canon camera for years, and while it has certainly allowed me to get shots with the kids out in the ocean that I would be too scared to attempt with my SLR or my iPhone, I never loved that camera. The display was hard to see, especially with sunglasses, the pictures were OK, but not great, and the camera stunk as an all-purpose camera – it really could only shoot in sunlight. Plus, as I have come to rely more and more on my iPhone for... Read More
