I can track my earliest Gmail email to September of 2005. Gmail has grown, in more ways than one, since its conception over 3 years ago. Gmail is probably the only email service that you would not enjoy using more in a desktop client, simply because Google has made its features and interface so intuitive to use. That’s all well and good, but desktop clients integrate much better with the rest of your computer than web clients do. I’ve tried OutLook, Apple’s Mail, Thunderbird, and nothing has worked for me.

What’s a guy to do? Turn to a new beta app, Mailplane, that’s what.

MacBook August 16, 2007

The MacBook. A terrific machine used which is easy to use for all ages, not just the working adult. Besides the glossy exterior of black and white, with keys perfect for our fingers, how much does the average person actually know about this extraordinary machine? Primarily, it runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo system. This is Intel’s most advanced Core micro-architecture, which allows speeds up to 2.16 GHz. This allows faster, more productive and functional use of it.

Secondly, it has the Front Row application. This allows the user to view his/her movies and picture albums on a 13.3 inch screen. The user can also listen to their iTunes library in total sound. Lastly, this phenomenal machine has wireless internet service. This allows the user to bring their work and games whever they choose. With a long-life battery, you can be on the go with this machine and work for a while before you have to charge it up again. The MacBook is a great invention that does not compare to anything else on the market. I’m very happy about receiving a Macbook for my birthday coming up soon. Any of you guys have a Macbook?

The very first time I booted up my Mac, I instantly took to the apps that OS X had to offer. The only thing left lacking was a decent text editor. I would use Notepad (the Windows default text editor) over TextEdit (the OS X default). Enter TextMate from Macromates.

Tuesday marked the third major Apple keynote event of the year, and many things came out of this (relatively) short event. Aside from shiny new iMac, Apple revamped their iLife and iWork software suites, bumping them both up to version ‘08.

Today, I’ll provide my outlook on Apple’s media suite; iLife ‘08.

Use Nike+iPod Sport Kit without the Nike August 13, 2007

shoepouch.jpg    Remember when the Nike+iPod Sport Kit came out? It was really cool and seemed to be a great accessory for the iPod. The only problem with it, at the time, was that it could only be used with Nike shoes. If you didn’t like running with Nike shoes, well then you were out of luck. Now, thanks to Grantwood Technology, there is a solution if you didn’t want the Nike shoes. Grantwood Technology has developed the Nike+Shoe Pouch, which is a pouch that can be put on any type of shoe. The pouch comes in a variety of colors, eight to be exact, and costs a small sum of $7! Interesting, I might consider buying one of these because it’s far cheaper than buying it with the shoes. Nice idea.

The game-less iPhone is about to receive the very popular cell phone game Doom. I must say that Doom is a very good game and it coming to the iPhone would make the iPhone more fun that it already is. Hard to imagine, eh? One problem, you can’t control the game and it has no sound. Hmm, well that isn’t very fun is it? So basically, it won’t be out for some time, but hopefully it will be out sooner rather than later. Either way, this seems to be a great game addition to Apple’s iPhone.
