7 Apple Picking Lessons Worth Applying To Real Life

Not to sound like a fall cliche of a human being, but this weekend I went apple picking on a small farm in New England. And as these activities which snap you out of your everyday routine tend to, apple picking led to my own mini-spiritual awakening. As I was harvesting my bushel of fruit and feeling one with nature, I had a few bite-sized revelations: Keep reading »

Introducing The Apple iPad, The Most Period-y Sounding Gadget Ever

I couldn’t care less about Apple‘s BIG! EXCITING! ANNOUNCEMENT! today, since I can still barely operate my iPhone. But it has come to my attention that Apple’s new gadget’s name — the iPad — is the most period-y sounding product name in history. (All right, maybe not as period-y as the iTampon. Don’t give them any ideas!) To 50 percent of the population, a pad is something you stick in your panties and bleed over before you toss it in the trash. In reaction, Twitter is abuzz with cracks about the iPad’s name, including my fave, “I hope the iPad has wings for extra nighttime protection.” Women who work at Apple, couldn’t you have talked Steve Jobs out of this grave sanitary napkin error?

Some 2010 Tech Trends That We’re Wary Of

I would certainly describe myself as a bit of a technical prude. I mean, when I make dinner plans I don’t enter them into the complicated calendar on my BlackBerry—I pull out my day planner. I haven’t yet traded in my book collection for a Kindle, and instead of pricing out an iPod Touch this Christmas, I was looking for a used record player. Don’t laugh. I try to keep up with the times. Really I do. But I’m scared that we are reaching the death rattle of real, in-person communication after hearing about some new tech trends. After the jump, some 2010 phenomena that make me nervous.

Watch Out, Hackers Could Take Over Your iPhone!!!

To all of you who have ever engaged in the BlackBerry versus iPhone debate, well, I hate to say it, but BlackBerry-toting owners are laughing today. It appears that the iPhone has a major flaw—it can be hacked via text messages. I know, I know, it’s terrifying. But try to remain calm. Take a deep breath and keep reading. Keep reading »

Apple Attempts To Bring Albums Back

Remeber those things, what were they called? Oh yeah! Albums. Back in the day, before we had iTunes, Limewire, YouTube and other internet-y things we actually had to physically buy disks containing music from a real, 3-D store! Well those days are over. But wait, Apple is saying, not so fast. Keep reading »

Is The iPhone The New Vehicle Of The Porn Industry?

What is Apple’s stance on pornographic iPhone applications? The company has been fighting off some bad press lately after having to ban two super sexy applications that slipped through the cracks (no pun intended). The problems came from “hot or not” type apps, which allow users to upload suggestive pictures of women (or young girls, sigh). While one company’s rule states no nude photos are allowed, bikini and lingerie shots are okay. The user-generated content is monitored, but not reviewed in detail. Keep reading »

Mac Gets A Girlfriend

We had long wondered what kind of girl the personification of a Mac computer would go for — and now we know. A new commercial pits Mac (Justin Long) against PC (John Hodgman) as they try to win a woman’s attention. Since it’s a Mac commercial, Mac wins. Who is this mystery lady? Says she: “I’m a Megan.” Keep reading »
