Apple Watch – My Initial Thoughts

By |April 14th, 2015|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , |

Ignorant and financially irresponsible -- those are two labels recently given to me in the eciov newsroom. The reason: I’m getting an Apple Watch. The topic is more divisive among my circle of techie friends than I anticipated. I suppose we should expect that these days. Apple is popular enough now that it warrants the extra attention and scrutiny. Words can hurt, but I’ll press on and tell you about my first experience with the Apple Watch. Before talking about my Watch appointment, I’d like to [...]

The iPad Air 2 is Great, and the Apple Watch Stinks

Actually, it's difficult to write this because I believe people need to know the truth about Apple, and I have to figure out how to get them to listen. I don't think the Apple Watch is stupid, or that Apple is going downhill. I don't think they'll ever make a car, but they'll definitely improve our driving experience.

Apple Sent Invites to March 9 Event, and I Wasn’t Invited

By |February 26th, 2015|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , |

This morning, Apple announced an upcoming event by way of sending invitations to the party, and yours truly is not on the guest list. I’m not at all bitter about missing the event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The affair will begin March 9 at noon here in the lovely state of Texas (10:00am Pacific, 1:00pm Eastern). I’ll probably be eating lunch or obsessively refreshing one of a hundred different liveblogs from the select few in attendance. Who knows? The invit [...]
