  • Apple Will Stream The WWDC 2014 Keynote Live On June 2

    Apple Will Stream The WWDC 2014 Keynote Live On June 2

    Apple will be streaming this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on June 2 at 10 AM PT (1 PM ET), the company announced today. Apple only sometimes streams live video of its special events, and never announces its intent to do so this far in advance, so this is an interesting development. The company doesn’t say what’s going to be on the docket at the show, but it… Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Sign Language

    Gillmor Gang: Sign Language

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — barely came out of the gates before John Taschek let Comcast have it, and really you need to see the visual on this one. After the salute to the internet provider, talk circled around Microsoft’s release of Office for iPad. Is it important? Well, no one on the show seemed to… Read More

    Apple Updates iWork Across Platforms, Brings Password-Protected Sharing To The Web And Mobile

    Apple released a number of updates to iWork today, across all platforms, including OS X, iOS and iCloud on the web. Improvements include the addition of customizable alignment guides and a vertical ruler on the Mac, a built-in remote feature on iOS (which replaces the standalone app) and, perhaps most importantly in terms of helping those looking to use iWork for iCloud instead of competitors… Read More

  • Apple’s Top Brass Looks Very Much In Sync At WWDC Following Last Year’s Reorganization

    Apple’s Top Brass Looks Very Much In Sync At WWDC Following Last Year’s Reorganization

    Apple’s WWDC Keynote yesterday left one impression on me above all others: the executive team seems much more comfortable and in sync under CEO Tim Cook now than they ever have before. Rarely has a keynote or event gone as smoothly as the one Apple delivered yesterday, and rarely has the ensemble cast approach (where different execs present different features and announcements) worked… Read More

    Google’s Three-Hour I/O Keynote Boils Down To These Highlights And One Theme: Foundation

    Today’s three-hour-long Google I/O keynote came with plenty of announcements, but the company mostly assured us that it is focused on building frameworks that can benefit developers and consumers. We saw a more unified company that needed three hours in one session to get their message across. Breaking today’s keynote up into two days would have disrupted the momentum coming out of… Read More

    Google I/O: Watch The Live Video Stream Here

    Google’s annual I/O conference in San Francisco kicks off this morning at 9am PT/noon ET and, as usual, the good folks from Mountain View are making a live video stream of the event available for all of you who can’t be there in person. Unlike other years, when Google ran two separate keynotes on the first two days of I/O, the company is only running a single keynote this time… Read More

    To Successfully Launch A Product, You Have To Tell A Compelling Story

    “The art of narration and dramatic presentation, together with a keen sense of the oral epic style, became a characteristic quality of the Russian people.” —Vladimir Propp, Morphology of the Folktale At the end of a week filled with product launches and press conferences, it’s hard not to compare those marketing events. Without even talking about the products, some… Read More

    Free Keynote iPhone/iPod Touch app coming February 13th

    A lot of the companies that came to our Tokyo meet-up earlier this week were generally online service oriented folk, so I mostly drank in the corner, but a few gems stood out in the crowd of Japanese nerds. One of those companies was Conit whom you might know from their wildly popular Samurai Chess and Melody Bell apps that currently occupy Apple’s App Store. Oh, who am I kidding? Those… Read More

  • So now what? Will Apple still bring a netbook or new Mac Mini to Macworld SF?

    So now what? Will Apple still bring a netbook or new Mac Mini to Macworld SF?

    We just learned that Steve Jobs is not going to give his annual address at Macworld where he generally announces new Apple product. So…now what? Is Apple still going to announce new products like the heavily rumored Apple netbook or new Mac Mini. How about the rest of the aluminum MacBook Pro lineup including a larger 17-inch model? Also, how about a new iPhone? What are all the… Read More

  • No Steve Jobs Macworld Keynote this year? This can't be right.

    No Steve Jobs Macworld Keynote this year? This can't be right.

    The Steve Jobs’ Macworld Keynote is Apple Fanboy’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Boxing Day all rolled into an one hour event, but there isn’t one scheduled this year according to the Macworld Website. It’s kind of strange that with the event less than three weeks away that the site wouldn’t put the event’s main attraction on the schedule. Jobs… Read More

    Nokia World 2008: Keynote Summary

    I’ve just left the Nokia World 2008 keynote, in which the new products and services were announced, like the Nokia N97, Nokia Maps, and Nokia Messaging.

    Apple’s online store is apparently down worldwide

    Apple might be up to something today because the Apple store, she is down. I wonder why, though? J/K all the way, ROFL! Check out the downed store for yourself here! Leave your guesses in the comments section as to what Apple might release today. I’m hoping for some sweet new stickers, apparel, and coffee mugs. I’d also like an Apple Netbook, an Apple Electric Car, and an Apple… Read More

    Via Valleywag. Silly Nicholas left his camera in the car. So a funny thing happened at the Zuckerberg Facebook keynote today. Dude was being interviewed by Sarah Lacy, some lady tech journalist. Maybe she missed that one week in J school where they teach you how to interview people, but man oh man was it a train wreck. She spent more time flirting with Z… Read More

    Macworld 2008: Some losers pissed me off, so I'm sharing them with you!

    The media queue to get into the keynote yesterday morning was insane, it always is at an event like this. It’s a couple of hundred journalists jockeying for the best spots in line so as to get the best seats with clear shots of the stage, while at the same time getting their software running while trying to keep their batteries from dying. It’s chaos. And the last thing it needs… Read More

  • Uncle Walt loves the Air, tentatively

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/452319854 “All thin notebooks have compromises,” says Mr. Mossberg and we have to agree. Clearly the Air isn’t for all of us, but folks with a huge, nasty IT-department Dell will think of this as a breath of fresh “air.” Ha! Willie! Read More
