Last week, we got a new Xerox Workcentre 7435 for the office. This new color multifunction printer was extremely easy to install and connect to our internal network. The new hardware obliges us to change some of our routine and habits, which of course, is not easy for everybody.
With minimal headaches, the office has adapted easily and quickly to the new machine, smile on my face.
I did not know until a Xerox’s technician came yesterday that Acrobat Reader X (ARX) was installed on our Macs...
Digg Founder Kevin Rose launched, this month, a private Newsletter called Foundation.
Last year Kevin announced that he was leaving Diggnation, a weekly tech/web culture show based on the top digg.com social bookmarking news stories, to start his own show called “fforward”. His idea evolved into something else called Foundation (http://foundat.io/n), a private paid newsletter for the cost of $3.99/month.
I am a big fan of the Macbook Air (MBA). I bought mine March 2008 just a few weeks after it was release.
Back then; my original plan was to use it as my main computer, I have to admit that never happened.
The MBA has limitations:
The Internal HD is only 80GB which demands an external HD to store an iPhoto’s and ITune’s library.
One USB port: impossible to sync an iPhone, iPad, camera or camcorder with iTunes or iPhoto without a hub.
It is not fast enough for some applications (Photoshop, Final Cut Express…).
I decided to only use it when I’m on the road; traveling with it is great.
I absolutely love it. It is the best size, weight, and design.
Sunday was a relaxing day. Not a vacation day but a nice rainy summer day.
Since I bought my iPad, I have not taken much time to play games on it. So yesterday, I browsed the section of the iTunes store that feature game apps designed specifically for iPad. I started to look at the free apps thinking that if I liked one I would purchase the full version after trying the free one.
Andrew welcomed me in his beautiful home and took me to a party when I first arrived.
The drive on route 1 was beautiful. We were driving a rental car (Ford Mustang 2010 Convertible). Point Arena is north of San Francisco. Nothing much to see there, except the Lighthouse (the highest one in the US).
While Ralph was driving back to SF I did this short film. I hope you enjoy it.
During the iPhone 4 press conference Steve explained that Apple rigorously tests new products before putting them on the market.
To defend the product further, a tour was organized to show journalist the facility that Apple built to test the iPhone 4.
It is Open.
Apple open the doors of its parisian mother ship store in Paris. While Apple fans started to line up around 2:00 AM, the morning rain prevented the crowd to really enjoy the opening.
The magnificent french architecture of the building was preserve by Apple. The new store features a 110 foot wide storefront. The huge metal and glass doors, arched windows and ornate wrought-iron balcony railings have been carefully restored.
