Did any of you get fooled today? I decided to forego any fake retirement/marriage/site change announcements so that no one gets their hopes up or their feelings hurt, even though I do enjoy a good prank. There were a lot of great ones on the web (and no one should trust anything they see online on April 1st anymore) but this one was particularly appropriate for me, I think.
It’s the iPlay… Which unfortunately isn’t a real thing… But could you imagine if Apple broke into gaming in a whole new way? Well, essentially this is a mishmash of other Apple products and a whole lot of Angry Birds. As someone who quite enjoys Angry Birds, I can’t say I’d be disappointed. But which one to get? The New iPlay? The iPlay 4S? The iPlay 5G? The options are endless. :P
I guess for now I’ll just have to play on any of my many other Apple devices… I think I can live with that. You can’t fool me that easy, IGN!
This is pretty amazing. I know not everyone here is the biggest Steve Jobs fan, but we all understand that I am. I was a huge fan of his in life and really quite sad about his untimely death. This was a VHS that got lost from part of a smaller interview, but it was found in someone’s garage of all places and so it was quickly put out for the public.
As much as it may sound silly since I never met the man, this is like finding an old home video of a departed friend. It was filmed while he was at Next, just months before he would head back to Apple. His enthusiasm and resilience is absolutely inspiration and his genuine charm is distinguishable even in the good old days… Oh, and that hair!
When I feel like I’m hitting a wall and I need a little boost, I’ll often think of the way he innovated and made a name for Apple. I like this little time capsule… It’s a little reminder to Think Different.
Of course, we all knew this, right? My fellow ginger Conan O’Brien certainly did, and he came out with a much more representative ad for one of my favourite Apple products, which just happens to feature all sorts of porn. It would have been pretty incredible if I made the cut and showed up in his compilation.
That said, the last meld of words kind of made me pause. I know it’s a joke, but I think we know that there’s a lot of porn habits that can be healthy, sexy and fun… And none of those descriptors he chose. That said, it’s late night TV, so I’m not expecting a frank discussion of sexuality or anything! Still, no shame in masturbating. Everyone has the right to unwind and feel good. ;)
How many iPad (or tablet in general) users do we have here? And how many of you use it for exactly what Conan suggested? But, most importantly, if you do… How do you best prop it up for the ideal hands-free watching experience? :P
Isn’t it beautiful? Yes, I know, I know… I’m always getting pretty new toys, but the MacBook Pro Retina is certainly useful! The thing is, we’ve recently realized that traveling is a huge motivator and aphrodisiac! Changing up the scenery is really wonderful, we get to go to new and exciting places and it makes us want to work even harder!
So, of course, we need a really great computer for everything from editing to popping in to say hello to everybody and updating you all on our trip! Any excuse to get a new Mac, of course, but this is as good an excuse as any! I love the retina display so much. It really is as vivid and precise as we could hope for, which is extra important with the HD videos we’re making.
It’s nice to have something portable that feels just as good as our trusty iMacs. We want to deliver the best quality we can to you. If that means I need to buy myself more toys to make that happen, well… I guess I’ll have to sigh heavily and open another Mac box. :P
Have any of you experienced the MacBook Pro Retina up close and personal? What did you think of the display?
So, the iPad Mini is out and I think it sounds pretty cool. It’s great that they’re able to compete with the smaller tablets out there. I had actually saved this video from a little while ago when it kept popping up around while I was looking up details on the launch. It’s making fun of my beloved Apple, but it’s done with a wink and a smile, so I think it’s funny. If you can’t have a little laugh at your own expense, what’s the point in Youtube? :P
Are any of you considering buying the iPad Mini? The real one, not the “iPad Mini” in this video… It’d be a nice upgrade, though we have been racking up the iPads (and iPhones, iPods, iMacs…) around here. What can I say? I love new technology!
Now that I’ve watched that video, I am getting very sleepy! And even more enticed to buy Mac products. I hope it made you giggle!
It’s been a year since Steve Jobs died and I just wanted to make a little blog post to commemorate his life and achievements. As an huge Mac fan, I think he helped to make some wonderful things, but he also inspired me as an innovator. His influence helped motivate me to find my own way to Think Different.
He will be missed. There’s a lovely tribute video up on Apple’s website today. I hope you get a chance to see it.
