‘Tis the season for pretty much everything. Partying, Eating, Celebrating and best of all Shopping!

The first three events are cause for celebration and good will.

But the shopping thing? Mmmm not so much at times.

We love to shop for ourselves – that’s a given. But what about everyone else on your list? And where can you get the best bang for your buck?

Apple Acclaimed Image Editor, Pixelmator, Is Now Available For The iPad

Sometimes quiet evenings are full of surprises around here.

I was watching Anderson Cooper on CNN and browsing around on my iPad. Two of my favorite things to do!

And I wondered?

Where is the world famous Pixelmator App which was highly featured at Apple’s iPad Event a couple of weeks ago? Read the rest of this entry

LIVE UPDATE: Apple’s Special October 16th Event Will Be Padded With Goodies!

Update: I am intrigued about the “It’s Been Far Too Long” theme for today’s event. Can this pertain to a new and improved Apple TV product?

Please excuse my hokey headline but I am competing against all the bigwig tech sites for page views here.

Nevertheless, suffice it so say, Wednesday’s October 16th Apple Event will be devoted to the unveiling of the new iPads. These iPads may be thinner and faster and will probably boast a camera upgrade, Apple Pay, Touch ID, new Colors, new Cases and more.

Also, I expect that Apple will reference the Yosemite Update for Mac, with a probable release date in October.

It would be great to see an update to the Apple TV Unit but right now i am holding my breath in hope that this Apple Event will stream seamlessly via the current Apple TV – unlike the brouhaha of their September event. What a train wreck. Seriously. I couldn’t provide live updates because of this glitch.

At any rate, I don’t think there will be any major surprises because so many details have already been leaked. But, one never knows.

So come back at 1:00 PM Eastern (10:00 AM Pacific) on Wednesday for the live GTG update.

What are your predictions for tomorrow’s event?

IOS 8.0.2 Available For Download

Okay, let’s try this again, shall we?

A couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to “fix” the bugs that crashed the party known as iOS 8.0.

Well, it appears that the iOS 8.0.1 was a regifter or something because chaos reigned the day when Apple consumers downloaded the software.

Owners of the newly released iPhone 6 and 6 Plus discovered that, after downloading iOS 8.0.1, their phone couldn’t connect to their Cellular Service and Touch ID was disabled. Good times.

So, this evening iOS 8.0.2 has been released to deal with these embarrassing issues. Here are the details:

“This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store

Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode

Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library

Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages

Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases

Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups

Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari”

Let us know how you do? And I will as well. If you never hear from me again, it is because I have thrown my iDevices out the window. Ha!

The New Bendable And Flexible iPhone 6.

O! M! G! Have you heard? The iPhone 6 has the capability to bend. Yes bend.

Take that Samsung and your curved TV screens!

I, personally, love the idea of folding this iPhone and placing it in my pocket or purse. I mean – isn’t this a glimpse into the future? Why is it okay for TV screens to bend and not a phone? I am confused.

Okay, all humour aside! What is the big deal here? What did you think was going to happen with these thin phones? The thinner anything is, the easier it bends. Well, almost anything. A thin piece of ice melts, so thank Heavens iPhone 6 customers are not experiencing this with their phones. Nothing more maddening than a phone that disappears.

I don’t know about the next guy or gal but the first thing I do when I purchase any iDevice is purchase a case. Yes, a case. A strong case. Like a Mophie case with extra battery life built in. This way your phone is protected and will have the support of additional battery juice. Hard to bend a phone with a strong casing adorning its figure.

And, if Mophie still hasn’t developed its new iPhone 6 cases when you read this, you can’t go wrong with Accessories Products on Apple.Com

Final alert: Do not drop your phone from a high altitude as this may cause your screen to break. Yes break! O! M! G! Glass breaks? (Sigh)
