  • Is “PC World” a new Macworld competitor?
    by Mike

    Now I know PC World is not turning anytime soon. They started as a PC oriented magazine many years ago and to this day still are for the most part. Though a website with "PC" in the title and one that has had such a high focus on PC's and Windows related content declaring OS X 10.6 as the "brainiest, brawniest, and most beautiful consumer-oriented OS available anywhere" brings a chuckle to my lips. Even though Windows 7 isn't publicly available in final form yet, anyone that's a geek, espec...

    According to Ars Technica and Cnet, CEA is reporting that at CES 2010 there will be an area for Apple products, however, they don't state if the "area" will include Apple itself, or 3rd party manufacturers designing add-on Apple products.  The last week have been filled of rumors of Apple dumping Macworld for CES next year.  Apple's main reason for leaving Macworld was that they felt consumer electronics shows were a dying thing and that since opening many new Apple stores that they could ...
  • Apple: “Good-bye Macworld…Hello CES!” (Rumor)
    by Mike

    According to Gizmodo and Cult of Mac, Apple is moving from one trade show to another, (Macworld --> CES).  This sounds odd because their main reason for leaving Macworld was that trade shows were "losing their purpose" more or less.  With Apple opening what seems like a new Apple Store every couple of days, reaching more people locally means a big trade show appearance isn't needed.  On top of that, Apple has voiced interest in doing their own type of product release events without any...

    Red Eye Chicago has already started putting the paces on AT&T's strained network by testing the download times of songs on both Edge and 3G showing what we iPhoners can get used to downloading music untethered and outside of Wi-Fi networks.  The test song was "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" by The Police.  The results?  It took TiPB 1 minute and 3 seconds to download the song over 3G, while Edge puttered along a little slower taking a full 23 minutes!  Both tests were conduc...
