Today, Apple released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, to its initial wave of countries. The USA is lucky enough to be in that list. People have been lining up at Apple Stores around the world, including Australia, for weeks.
I was lucky enough to go hands-on with both an iPhone 6 and an iPhone 6 Plus to check out their design, usability and iOS 8.

Visiting Northern California is always an adventure. I enjoy traveling back to places that have provided me with excellent photographic, social media and food related material. However, during this trip, I ventured over a 100 miles from home base to the Apple Inc Headquarters and the Apple Company Store in Cupertino, California.
Cupertino is a bustling city in the heart of Silicon Valley. Many startups and large multi-national corporations like Apple are located within a 20-mile radius. Travel a few miles in any direction and you might run into LinkedIn for instance, which I found totally by serendipity.

Hulu.com is a web site which aggregates television shows from its partners that commonly have episodes available within 24 hours after being on TV.

It was not that long ago, 10 years, that I first started hearing and getting excited about the new iMac’s. I was told from an Apple rep that this new computer was going to completely change the way normal consumers purchased computers. Studies had shown that people were using more space than what could fit on a floppy so they got rid of it. The studies also showed that the USB version of the Iomega Zip Drive was beginning to dominate the portable storage market. To completely change the way people bought their computer made sense after hearing the whole story.
Apple consumer electronics devices almost always are on ‘Best of’ lists from a wide range of media outlets, small to mainstream. Once in a long while a product will make it to a ‘Worst of’ list. It seems this just happens to be one of those times. The Apple TV is on the ‘Top 10 Worst Tech Product’ for 2007 by Yahoo! Tech.
