Is anyone else out there addicted to the spotty little game called Two Dots? C’mon – fess up! Some of you know you are!

So, hence – this article. Read the rest of this entry
Microsoft Word Is Available For The iPad: Get Ready To Press The Delete Button
Seriously Microsoft. What sort of passive-aggressive, self-destructive move propelled you to release the long-awaited Microsoft Word iPad App which came encumbered with the addition of a $99.00 a year subscription?
To expect consumers to pay $99.00/year to use this App when Apple’s iPages App is absolutely free is absolutely mind-boggling.
Additionally, Apple’s iPages allows one to edit documents and then email them in a Microsoft Word format if one desires.
No wonder your stores are empty and Apple’s are filled to the brim.
I mean – the $99 price take was hefty enough for an iOS app – but on a yearly basis? Are you kidding me?
Apparently, this new App is dominating the App Store with exceptional download activity, but has anyone determined how many people, upon learning that they have to pay an exorbitant yearly fee for this App, have also deleted the App? I would love to see those numbers.
And, truth be told, I am so accustomed to using iPages that I have no compulsion to change teams. Because iPages just works – and it, along with the entire iWork suite, is free with new purchases.
What do you think everyone? Did you fork over $99.00/yearly for Microsoft Word’s iOS App? Do you prefer iPages? Share in the comments.
Theory: iPad Mini Could Be Priced At $199 And Here’s Why
I was beating my head all weekend trying to figure out how Apple could sell its much anticipated new iPad Mini for a competitive price without compromising the higher end price of the new iPod Touch line.
Well. as in all things, the solution is simple. Ridiculously simple actually.
Here is my theory: the iPad Mini will indeed be a consumption device but more than that it will be purely an Apple consumption device.
Similar to the strong ties Amazon has achieved between their Kindle line and Amazon products, the iPad Mini will be used to purchase Movies, Music, newly-defined Apps and Games only through ITunes.
Additionally, books will be available via only via iBooks and Podcasts via the Podcast App.
And there you have it in a nutshell. Yes, you will see the popular apps like Facebook and Twitter; after all, they have established a strong partnership with Apple.
But, at the end of the day, this iPad Mini will be an aggressive move to push all of Apple’s products, like iBooks, to the forefront.
The iPad Mini, at a lower cost than its full-sized parent, will be the vehicle to drive sales of media, music, books and apps through the roof.
What do you think? Does this theory sit well with you? Please share your comments.
It’s A HAppy Kind Of Day for iOS 6 Customers
Oh my goodness. Stop the updates. Seriously. Who can keep up? I barely had time to blow dry my hair.
And yet, all of these new iOS 6 features are making me do the HAppy Dance here. Groan – I know, pretty lame joke but aren’t you sad you didn’t think of it first?
What a day! After successfully downloading iOS 6 to my iPad and iPhone, I was also greeted with the task of updating a ton of my favourite Apps – like iMovie, iPhoto, iPages, iPages, iBank, Keynote and many, many more.
Now, to be honest, I haven’t had time to try all of them but suffice it to say that, at first glance, all appear to be super efficient and silky smooth.
Many of the Apps come with tons of new features to complement the sophistication of iOS 6. And, for Facebook lovers – all bzillion of you – there is Facebook integration everywhere you look. Just hold your finger on a photo or tap a share button in an App and watch the magic begin.
And let’s not forget Siri status updates for Facebook. Very, very nice.
And, when you visit the iOS App Store, check out the beauty of the new layout. It makes you want to shell out more money – everything old looks new again.
And the icing on the cake? Mountain Lion issued a huge update as well. Check it out! Is it long enough for you?
The only downside is that Maps is a bit of a mess. The navigation system works well enough, I suppose, but no 3D is happening at my end. I suspect that the rendering of 3D images is dependant on your location but still, all in all, I was disappointed.
Everything in time and circumstance. Geeks must be patient but sometimes it’s hard.
So, have you downloaded iOS 6 and updated your Apps? Is it all you were expecting? More? Less? Please share.
