I tried to buy an iPhone

It’s been a long time since I bought my first Mac and got an iPhone not much later. I like Apple for the most part. Spent a few years with just a linux laptop/desktop, but got a M2 Macbook Air last year and, well… I say all that to say this: For the most part, I’m pretty happy with Apple. Products are good, usable, etc. Don’t have many problems. Because of this, and since it’s been a few years since the Mrs and I have upgraded the phone, I decided to get her one of those new iPhone 15 Pros....

Jawbone Jambox Reset

Let’s reset this Jambox So, at the bakery we use the Jawbone Jambox. We actually use two of them… we have the regular Jambox (in blue of course for Yeni) and in the kitchen we have the Big Jambox. I’ll tell you why I love the Jambox in a bit — first let me tell you what to do when your Jambox doesn’t light up or when your Jambox doesn’t respond. Resetting the Jambox...

RIP Macbook Pro

I should have knocked on wood. Just the other day, literally, I posted high praises about my laptop — how long I’ve used it, the amazing quality of the hardware, and even how it’s amazing life had made me start to dislike Apple. This afternoon, I used my Macbook in a Dentist’s waiting room. This evening, she left us with the unacceptable blank screen of death. ...

Using NFS on Mac OS

Disclaimer: This is one of those tech articles. It’s not that I hate windows, I mean I did get an MCSE and everything… its just that I find linux and mac vastly better. It’s a religious war, and I choose not to preach my choices to you. Mine works for me… whatever works for you is A-OK by me. Anyway… this post is about NFS. What is NFS? NFS is the acronym for Network File System — brought to you by the friendly folks at Sun Mircosystems....

Less bars in more places

So, the iphone rocks in that I can update this site and facebook while driving. But as a phone? Horrible. I’m dropping calls left and right. So much so that I wish AT&T had a custom call failed sound.

New design goes live

Was time for a change. Plus now I can post from anywhere using the iPhone. Like the gas station. 🙂

10 days, 0 reboots

I love my Mac. I cannot believe I didn’t embrace this earlier– could be the years of windows use or the bias I felt from the training days… but I was real slow to open my heart to linux and mac’s… and now that I’m there… 2 words… Damn! The Mac just works. And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that.

Fred buys a Mac

Well, I’ve been using PC’s since 1993.. before then, I either didn’t use computers or used Apple 2’s :). Anyway, lately… I simply have not been feeling that lovey-happy-go-lucky feeling for Windows. Don’t get me wrong… I don’t hate Windows… I just don’t love them anymore. I’ve become angered by reboots, memory leaks, and well– just typical windows bullshit. The more I use linux, the more I enjoy it. I really like CentOS and was looking for a “fun” factor that would maybe make my computer no longer just about work....
