However, when I saw this article from BitRebels.Com, I had to get this GTG blog rolling once again courtesy of some more wise and wonderful words from the late and the great, Steve Jobs.
In this 1994 video, Steve gives his succinct and, I must say, inspiringly accurate insight into why people fail. And, don’t we all want to avoid that?
He relays information that basically enabled him to move ahead in his technological career, even starting from the age of 12 years old where he made his now famous phone call to Bill Hewlett asking for some spare parts for a frequency counter that he was in the process of building.
Well, not only did Bill Hewlett give Steve the spare parts he asked for, but he also offered him a job at Hewlett – Packard during the summer. All from a simple phone call.
Most young people would be intimidated at phoning a large company or, perhaps, would not think to even venture in this direction, afraid that they would be deemed a nuisance and have the phone slammed shut in their ear.
But, risk-taking is so crucial to success – in any field – and, most of the time, the positive benefits of taking the risk outweighs the negatives.
Have a listen to this brief video – resplendent with Jobisms – and then go out and take that risk you have always been dreaming of!
However, just before he was to audition in front of Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and LA Reid, young Trevor collapsed, totally unconscious.
The kid did not look good at all and it worried me. And we were left hanging until Thursday’s show
To Apple Geeks everywhere, this talented and vivacious boy is an icon – a symbol of the fun-loving atmosphere that one enjoys during visits to the Apple Store.
I sang Trevor’s praises back in May. He captured my attention not only because of his connection to the Apple Stores but also for his innate musicality.
But not to worry everyone, Trevor is alive and well and tweeting on Twitter.

Okay, I guess I’ll be on tomorrow! Stay tuned
Tune in to The X Factor tomorrow night to see what happens. That kid is so darn cute. I hope he advances further into the competition. Apple could sponsor him (wink, wink!)
This kid has spunk, I tell ya! And talent as well. He lines his body up so well with the camera – it is a lesson in creative spontaneity.
The kid has some neat moves and great facial expression. I loved his slow-mo choreography at around the 2:20 mark. Very neat!
While he was dancing, I was watching the people in the background. Too much fun! One guy, to Trevor’s left, looked up and then resumed his discussion with an Apple employee. Like this was no big deal. Like this happens every day – which it probably does.
And then there was the statuesque glamor girl who provided back-up choreography. She’s gorgeous. Sign her up as a model – she could make big money.
For the record, this is the quietest Apple Store I have ever seen. Usually, I need an oxygen mask when I visit the Apple Store – there are so many people one can barely breathe. In fact, it’s usually wall-to-wall people.
it was cool to see some Apple Employees join in the fun – that’s what this store is all about, after all, innovation and excitement and, most of all, pure, unadulterated fun.
As I was watching Trevor it got me thinking: “Who are his parents”? “How do you spawn a creative, cool , uninhibited kid like Trevor”? “In six years, will my granddaughter be doing this”? If so, I will be right there front and center, cheering her on! I love kids like Trevor – they embrace life and have little care for what people think or say about them or anybody else.
Steve Jobs must be smiling now. He wanted his Apple Stores to be similar to a Disney-like adventure and, sure enough, it looks like he dream is unfolding as it should.
I came across this great video tutorial about the amazing editing features of the iMovie IPad App.
It leaves out one small – or large – detail, depending whether or not you are a control freak, as am I,
If you are, then read this article after watching this excellent video.
Also, it gave me the idea to start a “how-to” category on the GrannieTheGeek.Com site – whether they be mine or someone else’s, such as Brennan Spark’s excellent video tutorial in this blog topic.
The important thing is to give readers quick access to technical assistance.
Now, I know many sites already provide this, but this site is aimed for the geeks in process – those who have a passion for technology as I do but have no idea where to start!
Are you an avid IMovie App fan? Do you have any other suggestions? I’m all ears – or fingers – so sock it to me in the comments section.
