You’ll barely be able to see it. It’ll sit near your television, or be a television. It will redefine what it means to watch a show. It’s the new Apple TV, and it doesn’t exist. You’re already using it.
It is my idea that there is no TV, only a groundbreaking software update that will transform every iOS device (including an upcoming A5 or A6-imbued Apple TV) into a television or cable box depending on the situation. Here’s how I see the strategy going…
iMessage and iOS 5 aren’t out yet. But that hasn’t stopped Facebook from releasing a superior messaging solution called Facebook Messenger or Google from giving Google+ awesome chat features like Hangouts and Huddle. Apple is going to have to move quickly if they want to gain much-needed ground and here’s how I think they could do it.
I’ve been using Lion for a little over three months, and iOS 5 for about two. I’ve been thinking about what to say about them, how to critique them.

They’re both solid updates that will keep OS X and iOS strong well into 2012.
I could write a review of either, but I feel like the final words have been written on them for now, and iOS 5 is still in flux anyways. Instead, I took a step back and looked at iOS 5 and Lion together; making educated guesses on things that could be, things that are just on the horizon, and things that Apple is clearly working on at this very moment.
I’ve switched my blog from Drupal to WordPress again and this is my first proper post from my new blog. Drupal is pretty great, but WordPress suits my purpose better. After all, what better for just a blog site? I’ll be finishing up the theme design then theming it up, but for now it’s going to [...]
