  • It will be a challenge for me to watch the #AppleEvent today. I guess I’ll hit Apple.com later to read about all the new stuff.

  • The iPad revenue share is about 6% of total. Seeing Apple continue to invest in this platform is something that I wonder if other companies would do with such a “loss leader”. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the iPad next week.

  • On AI Pin, Rabbit R1 and Apple Vision Pro.

    From what I’m reading and seeing, the AI Pin and Rabbit R1 are terrible devices for potentially great AI use cases, while the Apple Vision Pro is a technology marvel device with weak use cases. The former are probably DOA because they risk lacking funding to keep the show going, while … read more

    In this image, according to AI bot, the 2013 Mac Pro is brown… a brown speaker! 😂

  • Security Is Hard for Everyone

    This morning, my wife picked up her iPhone and tried to unlock it1. She couldn’t after a few try2. She tried a few times with a slight variation, but the iPhone refused to unlock itself, now showing a 15-minute delay on the lock screen. Her passcode is a complex one as per corporate security … read more

  • It’s been such a long time since Apple redesigned their Magic Mouse. Is this the only solution to an old problem? And this charging port underneath, could they try to fix this nonsense too? Hard to believe Apple can be so slow at fixing the obvious.

  • It’s a bit sad that I won’t be able to watch the new iPad announcement in two weeks as I’ll be abroad on a cruise ship. I won’t pre-order the new iPad Pro either because I won’t be able to read all the news beforehand. This could mean that I’ll face delays in getting the new device. 😩

  • The Magic Is Gone - Initial Charge

    The magic of Apple’s retail stores is gone.

    Except when the new iPad Pro launches, which should be the case pretty soon.

  • A long time ago, around iOS 7, I played with my iPad to do some mockups, like this one: a redesigned Settings.app.

  • Ten years (oops, fourteen) years of iPad. This article, first published more than four years ago, takes another dimension on the eve of new iPad releases.

  • After my iPad Pro, my “old” 2020 Mac mini is next1.


    1. To be upgraded so that i can use two screens at once. ↩︎

  • Jony Ive searching for funding to help develop a dedicated AI device. I hope he will succeed with his iPad.🤣

  • Sold my little Mac Pro trash can for $600 CAN1. Not bad for a 1TB SDD, 128GB of RAM and the 12-core Xeon 2.7 GHz configuration. And the Thunderbolt 2 cable and TB 3 to TB2 adaptor. Not the keyboard or mouse, as they are still useful for me. Sometimes. 🙂


    1. I barely knew it. It’s sad because I loved this little machine. ↩︎

  • I’m seriously considering selling my 2018 11-inch iPad Pro, Apple Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil as a bundle, very cheap, before the new iPad Pro comes out, while dollars value is still reasonable. The thing is that I don’t want to setup my new iPad from an iCloud backup, these are slow and are missing quite a few pieces of data. The Migration Assistant method is so much more effective. I should decide this weekend. 🤔

  • I hate to put things like Apple gear for sale on Facebook Marketplace. Most people are rude, lacking any civility, and not trustworthy. Still looking for a serious buyer for my 2013 Trashcan Mac Pro. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Raycast is becoming a powerhouse; it’s almost unbelievable. I just finished testing the latest release, which includes a Chrome companion extension. This extension allows invoking Raycast to perform tasks within the context of the currently open website in the browser. It’s super handy for summarizing an article or a YouTube video. I’m considering upgrading my Raycast subscription to support more advanced ChatGPT integration and models. 🤑

  • “One way or another, real competition may be coming to the iPhone” - The Platformer about the DOJ vs Apple lawsuit.

    Oh, come on.

  • DOS vs Apple - Am I Getting Too Old?

    I’m unsure if I’m getting too old, but topics like DOJ vs Apple and everything preceding it are too complex for me to dive into. It may be a vital part of Apple’s current history, but I struggle to grasp it. I appreciate the efforts of non-professional tech pundits and Apple … read more

  • Wow, I’ve been out for a few hours and what do I get when I come back? DOJ vs Apple. 🫣😳🥴

  • It’s an “Apple Store visit” day. I like those. Even if I don’t plan to buy anything. 😬
