taking the plunge!… MacBook Pro coming tomorrow

So I am probably the last mac lover to upgrade to the MacBook Pro but finally I am ready and able to make the plunge…   I have been waiting and waiting, which I am glad I did because if I would have got the MacBook Pro right when it came out I would have missed out on the santa rosa processor, boo hoo! Anyways I will of course have a review in a few days for the 2 people out there that don’t have one yet!


Another Apple announcement coming- 9/5

As we have all expected, Apple has announced that they will be having a ‘Special Event’ on the September 5th 2007. The invitation went out to selected press in the US on 8/28 and featured a silhouetted figure holding an iPod and the phrase: “The beat goes on”. So judging from the invitation there is likely to be iPod-themed announcement.
This event will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and it’s widely believed that Apple will reveal updates to the nano and 5G iPod range.


New iMac from Apple

A few short mins ago Apple announced a brand spanking new line of iMac’s. They are built from aluminum and glass and this all-in-one desktop features a complete redesign and will come in two sizes: 20-inch and 24-inch. It will feature a wireless keyboard and up to 2.4GHz Core 2 Extreme processor, also it will have the standard  ports like USB 2.0, Firewire 400 / 800, a slot loading SuperDrive, iSight camera and bluetooth 2.0 and my guess is  much much more … more info coming soon… check out the pics for now, coolness, too bad i have my mind set on a macbook pro


iPhone CRAZY-ness

Does anyone else think this whole iPhone thing is getting out of control? There are millions of blog posts about the iPhone, every blogger has done at least one, the hype is well the iPhone is more hyped then Star Wars, then PlayStation3 its the hyped of the hyped and thats not the crazyness im talking about…

Alot of stores now have over 30 people waiting in line…waiting for over 30 hours… waiting outside on the street for 30+ hours for a cell phone that doesnt have MMS, high speed data, a removable battery, or keys? not to mention a cell phone that is from a manufacture that has never made a cell phone before and did we forget that its a touch screen for EVERYTHING!!! i had a tons of issues with my 2 touch buttons on my LG phone and LG has been making cellular devices for 10+ years….

I can’t wait for the backlash…

and PS i am a loyal APPLE enthusiasts


iPhone Plans released

AT & T state that … All iPhone monthly service plans are available for individuals and families and are based on a new two-year service agreement with AT&T. Individual plans are priced at $59.99 for 450 minutes, $79.99 for 900 minutes and $99.99 for 1,350 minutes. All plans include unlimited data (email and web), Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, roll over minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile and a one-time activation fee of $36. Family plans will be as follows, $80 for 700 shared minutes, $100 for 1400 shared minutes and $120 for 2100 minutes all family plans also include unlimited data (email and web), Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, roll over minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile.

CURRENT AT&T customers … Don’t fret  for $20 more you can add on the iPhone package of unlimited data (email and web), Visual Voicemail, 200 SMS text messages, roll over minutes and unlimited mobile-to-mobile. For an extra $10 or $2o you can increase sms to 1500 or unlimited.

I am SHOCKED at the costs of these plans and what is included I honestly thought the costs would be 25-40% higher then they are. I am slowly becoming sadder and sadder that i am stuck with a 2 line verizon plan for 18 more months.


Camping out for the iPhone?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or in a cave you know that the APPLE iPhone is coming out on Friday June 29th but did you know that PEOPLE are camping outside the Apple store in NYC already????

I can’t say that they are totally insane and or that i didn’t think this was going to happen (one time i sat outside the virgin mega store in Times Square from 6pm until 9am then next day with a few friends to get meet and greet passes for NoDoubt and when the first Star Wars remake came out i had people outside the movie theater that i worked at in NYC for 2 days) but i didn’t think people would start lining up this soon, i figured maybe Wednesday, 2 days before the release, not today, 5 days before!!! Hope they all find it worth it and at least get a phone!

BTW- when i stayed outside all night i not only got autographs but i got to see a private show with only approx 50 attendees, most of whom were media guests.

Rent AD Space on My *new* MacBook Pro

I think this may have been done before, so i cant’ say i’m original, or innovative but after thinking for days and days i have decided that it would be a really good idea to rent out some space on the outside of my new MacBook Pro that i will be getting and using a lot in public soon…

I will be purchasing a brand spanking new Apple MacBook Pro in a few weeks and i will be using this laptop all over the tristate area at various public spots, restaurants, bookstore and coffee houses… I thought it would be a good idea to offer advertising space on the lid and for you(the person paying for and AD) it will be a great way to get the word out about your business, website, blog, product and more… my guess that my laptop will be seen by at least 50-100 people daily, maybe more, and this will be 6-7 days a week.

Ad’s will be in the form of stickers or decals that the Advertiser will provide to me, i can and will send dated photos weekly or monthly to you of my laptop lid in public places with your decal showing. I am open to working out monthly, bi monthly, tri monthly or yearly deals on the space rental. Sizes and prices are up for discussion.

Hopefully my lid will look something like this …

Colored stickers/decals are welcome and encouraged, This arrangement will also include the standard elevator pitch, meaning if someone asks about the ad, I’ll introduce the product/service/site to them in less than a minute (which is enough to capture the interest of people if done right). So this means I cannot possibly pitch stuff that I’m not comfortable using myself, so I reserve the right to turn down unsuitable ads.
