Happy 40th Anniversary, Apple!

Like others, I thought it will be fitting for me to recount some simple milestones in how I got started in Macs and Apple. This is my very first Mac – the iBook G4 12-inch. I could not remember exactly which generation it was, except for the fact that I took ownership of it in […]

Two months with the Apple Watch

When the watch was first announced to launch in only several countries that excluded Singapore, I was slightly upset but for the first time in many years, I did not feel an absolute need to get the Watch on launch day. I have owned a Pebble since when they were on Kickstarter, and thanks to […]

No more Siracusa OS X reviews

I started with the Mac later than most long timers of the Mac Community, with my first Mac being an iBook (the last one assembled in Taiwan) running Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, and I had earlier used Jaguar (10.2) in school. The first major Mac OS X I was really excited about with my […]

Got really sick of the default “universe/galaxy”-style wallpapers introduced since Leopard, and extracted some old wallpapers from pre-Leopard Mac OS Xes. Am currently rocking this setup. Here are all the default Aqua Blue and Aqua Graphite Mac OS X wallpapers from the […]

My thoughts on business analysts (and similar humans)?

Business analysts (and similar humans) are the most useless human beings alive. Their “expertise” is to be an expert at nothing, making brief and often factually incorrect analysis on companies. They make absolutely ZERO contribution to mankind, yet consume most of the limited resources. In other words, they are not just MORONS, they are also […]
