A Twitter For Mac Bug That Breaks My Heart – And Workflow

Let’s start with my bias. I love Twitter, use it all the time (a lot more than Facebook), and will continue to love and root for Twitter. I’ve been a Twitter for Mac user for a long time. I know it’s out of favor with all the cool kids, but it works for me. It…

Disabling Horizontal Scroll on the Mac

I love when the combination of Google Search and the a great discussion board quickly solve something that has been driving me batshit for a while. I finally stopped procrastinating and started the final two day edit push on Venture Financings: How To Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer And VC. However, for the last month…

What Do You Hate The Most About Your Mac?

Now that my complete and total infatuation with my Mac has worn off and shifted into delight and love, I’m starting to explore the weaknesses of the Mac for not other reason than I’m trying to figure out where the real rough edges are. So – if you are a Mac user, I’m very interested…

An Alternative For The Mac Address Book App?

A Month of Mac

My post yesterday titled Rethinking The Laptop resulted in three very specific pieces of feedback followed by me taking one specific action.  The feedback was: Dump Outlook Get a solid state drive Get a Mac After mulling things around for 24 hours, I decided to once again try my annual switch to the Mac.

An Apple in the White House?

Today’s Washington Post article titled Staff Finds White House in the Technological Dark Ages was no big surprise.  However, while I was taking a shower (in a hotel in the Houston suburbs of all places) it occurred to me that this presents an incredible marketing opportunity for Apple. If I were king of Apple (or say,…
