Happy Birthday iPhone

The iPhone. It was the one device which the world needed. It was the one device that changed the world. Everything we do in our daily lives today will not have been possible without the introduction of the iPhone in 2017; Taking uber, Running a business from the palm of your hands, Full scale, WIDESPREAD, […]

Happy 10th Birthday, iPhone

I still remember the day I was sitting in my room, at my desk, watching the keynote and calculating how long would I have to save in order to afford the phone should it come to Singapore eventually (roughly 7 months, I was a student then). Many months later when it seemed like the iPhone […]

Steve Jobs’ Death Anniversary 2014

It has been three years since Steve passed. As we today look at our iPhone 6es, our iPad Airs, our new Mac Pros and wait longingly for the Apple Watch, do we remember Apple as the behemoth that bought Beats, stepped repeatedly on tiny has-been Microsoft, and shows the finger to Google? Or is Apple […]

My podcast (listening) journey, 2013 edition

Changed a few things around the site. Contemplated going with a completely new theme, but decided that the effort will not be worth my time, especially as I really like the current layout. Quite some time back, I wrote about how I discovered 5by5 studios, and how switching to it (from the deteriorating TWiT network) […]

On the long Apple writing hiatus and my hatred for the world right now

Since Steve passed away, I have not found much motivation to post anything here. Furthermore, changes to various aspects of my Apple-related connections locally just made things worse. These days, I am really more depressed than anything else to have idiots berating me every time I point out factual mistakes in their Anti-Apple rants, all […]

Apple posts yet another record breaking quarter, AAPL down 13%

Even more proof that Wall Street and all these analysts/investors are just idiots. On the other hand, why should we bother with them in the first place? They were not here with us when the iMac was launched, neither were they here when Steve announced the original iPod. When the iPhone was released they said […]

AAPL

Why is it so cheap today after the crazy spikes last year? Simple. Powerful people needed to make big money, and the only way to do it is to keep AAPL below $500.

On Tim Cook and others

Been a long long time since I last wrote here, and before I restart having more frequent appearances here I thought I will post some very short thoughts about everything happening at Apple for the past few months. On Tim Cook: There are men who are “leaders”, and there are men who are just “bosses”. […]

The Parities of Steve Jobs and Hyuuga Tooru in “Rich Man, Poor Woman”

Those of you who know me personally know that in addition to being an Apple freak, I am also more Japanese than most other Singaporeans. This drama season (summer, running roughly from July to September), I am addicted to “Rich Man, Poor Woman” a “Getsuku”(Fuji TV’s most famous timeslot for Japanese dramas, Monday 9pm, also […]

Sparrow Mail sells out to Google, scams its loyal users

Today, Sparrow, arguably the best third party mail client on OS X and iOS (there aren’t many really) right now, sent its paid users this email; This is great news for everyone in the company (big cash out), but for most of their loyal users, this not just a clear act of betrayal (who could […]
