It’s Over

WWDC 2018 is over. No new Mac hardware. Yawn. Nothing else to say.

Wayback Machine – 1970

It’s a holiday weekend and I was feeling a bit nostalgic. Back in the 60s and 70s fast food and drive-ins were the thing. Where I grew up, the nearest McDonald’s was in the next state. We did have a Red Barn. As far as I can find, there is only one Red Barn still…

WWDC 2018 – Hardware?

May is almost over. This weekend marks the beginning of ‘summertime’. This coming Monday is Memorial Day. For some, this means that there is lots of work to do outside. For some it means time for camping and barbecues. For the Apple crowd it means it’s time for WWDC. Apple is holding the 2018 event…

iMac HD Upgrade – 6 Months in

Back in October of last year, I had a failing hard drive in my 2009 iMac. At the time I struggled with what to do. I could just get rid of it or put some money in a piece of “old tech” to get a little more use out of it. After the upgrade I…

Old and New Tech – HP 35

There is no denying that we live in a technological age. Most everything that we use today has a chip in it. By chip I mean a microprocessor. It still amazes me today when I see the evolution of tech, but more the cost of tech. I remember the first calculator I bought. It was…

iMac Pro Ships

The day has finally come, and it has come early. During their WWDC event last June, Apple announced the new iMac Pro. This ‘updated’ 5K iMac would have the workstation-class power that Mac users have been craving. During the announcement they claimed it would ship by the end of the year. Today, December 14th is…

Club Mac 2000

Going through my piles of junk in hopes of downsizing, I came across an old Club Mac catalog. Not that a Club Mac catalog is something special, but this one looks to be from either Fall or Winter of 2000. Not only is it fun to look back and see some of the stuff from…

3 Years and Still Counting

I really hate to start off a blog by apologizing, but I apologize. This is yet another “there hasn’t been a Mac mini update for…years” story. While it is true it has been what seems like forever, the question should be is Apple going to drop the mini, update the mini, or replace the mini?…

iMac HD Replacement x2

I own plenty of Macs. Of all the Macs that I currently own and use on a daily basis, I have only one iMac. I recently sold off the other models I had, mainly they were 2008 models so I have just this single 21.5 inch iMac left. Over the last couple weeks it had…

I Found Something I Like in 10.10!

I will admit it – I am turning into a curmudgeon. I like my Macs the old way. The way where everything isn’t tied to everything else I own and has to link and share everything I do. I am an island – leave me alone. I loved Mac OS 10.6, which to this day…
