Why not go to bed when you are tired? This is truly pathetic, the degree to which technology offers to control the pace of ones life. An alarm, OK, for getting to the work treadmill on time, but going to bed and sleep time? Ugh, losers, get a life. …
A ridiculous fawning headline. The SE is a desperation move by Apple to plug a gap in the iPhone range and boost flagging sales and share price. Stuff existing parts from the 6 into the existing 5 case and Hey Presto! A "new" product!! No further d…
Whoopee. iPhones have been unlocked in New Zealand since day 1. It is illegal (and anti-competitive) to lock a phone to a carrier here. So much for the land-of-the-free. More like the land of big business.

Almost all of the posts on this topic are knee-jerk slagging of Microsoft or trivial complaints about having to pay $20 to update. The MS exec is correct in saying that iWork has been watered down. A lot of functionality has been removed for compat…
The editorial is pure fluff, all about look, feel, marketing, branding, with a fawning tone. Where is the critical analysis? Were is Apple going? There is no substantial clue in the article. Where is analysis of the graphic design- col…
The phone is fine. The real problem is OSX, the elephant in the room is the separation of the menu bar from the window. Commands are all over the place, in menus and across the top of windows. It makes it difficult for programmers to write c…
