Somehow You Must Love Spammers!

I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for people who waste their time sending ridiculous comments to a huge number of blogs, because it indicates two things:

  • A lot of blog owners running WordPress apparently forget running Akismet, because somehow these auto spam providers must gain access to blogs somewhere since they keep trying to come through…
  • The whole point of a comment is to provide something VALUABLE to a discussion, so even when a spam comment comes through, they won’t get any of the organic traffic that a well written comment gets.

MacOS9.2 Was a Lifesaver

It may well be that late founder Steve Jobs buried MacOS 9 when MacOS X was introduced, but there is one very important thing that helped me after a mistaken attempt at installing Yellow Dog Linux on an old eMac. MacOS X could not format the linux partitions…

Apple’s Discount Prices

When new models arrive on the market you had better wait to buy your product until the new version has been released. I bought both the iPad and Apple TV just prior to new versions being released. The price of the NEW Apple TV has dropped 80DKR (approx. 15US.$.) here in Denmark, and the price of the “old” iPad (model 2) is now 500DKR (approx. 100US.$.) lower now that the new iPad has been released.

iPad Review: Is The iPad Right For You?

As regular readers will have noticed when I wrote the recent article about the Apple TV, I also bought an iPad. Since this was prior to the release of the new iPad (3) on March 7th 2012, it was an iPad 2.

Wondering What Is Coming In 2012 From Apple?

I am curious as to what 2012 will bring from Apple. There are numerous rumors, but nothing really credible about the strategy for the year ahead. I am looking forward to seeing whether we will see a new iPhone and what is going to stay within the iPod business. Even though the iPhone 4S looks good there is no major incentive for buying it if the iPhone 5 is just around the corner – and I don’t think I’m the only one wondering about this.

Buy Your Updates Through iTunes

When you want to update one or more programs from the iWork suite it can be quite handy to remember that single programs can actually be updated – at a lower price – when you update through iTunes. It’s true that you don’t get any installation cd or dvd, but who needs that in an age where WiFi networks run at speeds we have today?
