More Apple Opinion

  • Opinion: Print to Dropbox, Evernote, or an actual printer from your iPhone or iPad

    As iPhones and iPads increasingly take the place of laptops, there's one area that continues to be a challenge for business users: how to turn digital documents into printed ones.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Irony deficiency

    Samsung's strategy revealed! Elsewhere, NORAD goes bing and Apple's happy to tell you all about things that aren't working. The remainders for Thursday, December 13, 2012 are here to help.

  • Opinion: System Preferences: General and Desktop & Screen Saver

    We've covered the basic functions of the Finder from stem to stern. It's now time to delve into the Mac OS's system preferences. Like the control panels on Windows PCs, system preferences govern much of the behavior of the Mac OS and the Mac's peripherals.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: There are those who call him 'Tim'

    Tim Cook speaks out on, well, pretty much everything. Meanwhile, Samsung gets permission to peek at Apple and HTC's new BFF deal, and AT&T phones in Pennsylvania are going to the Dans. You'll find the remainders for Thursday, December 6, 2012 in the Castle of Aaargh.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Rumor, rumor on the wall

    Begun, these iPhone rumors have. Elsewhere, Apple's radio service isn't getting play time from record labels, Eric Schmidt's got a head-scratcher, and Apple's getting greener (and not with envy). The remainders for Wednesday, December 5, 2012 are the fairest of them all.

  • Opinion: App Spotlight: Airport Guide helps you find your way

    Smart business travelers keep an arsenal of apps at their fingertips to help with any situation. Hence, HipMunk for booking flights, Hotel Tonight for booking hotels, TripIt for keeping tabs on all your travel reservations, and so on.

  • Opinion: The Macalope Daily: Unrequited disdain

    Forbes is truly the gift that keeps on giving to the Macalope.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Road to nowhere

    Apple's map manager gets shown the door (accurately, we hope), Siri will soon do everything but drive your car (thankfully), and one user dreams of the Apple TV (that will never be). The remainders for Tuesday, November 27, 2012 know where they're going, but they don't know where they been.

  • Opinion: The Macalope Daily: All kinds of winning

    It's traditional to use the appellation "number cruncher" for someone like Horace Dediu, but that seems inadequate. Dediu does not so much crunch numbers as he vaporizes them.

  • Opinion: Surface RT: ARM'd, but not dangerous

    Windows Phone's where's-my-app theme is echoed by the Surface RT, making it unlikely that Microsoft has the power to steal market share from tablet heavyweights Google and Apple just yet.

  • Opinion: What you need to know about accessing the Internet on a smartphone

    Robert Harris asked me to explain the technologies and concerns around smartphone Internet access.

  • Opinion: The Macalope Daily: Bereft of basic logic

    [Due to technical issues The Macalope is currently available to all Macworld readers, not just members of Macworld Insider.]

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Paydirt

    Apple’s paying a big chunk of change to Samsung and the Swiss railway, but maybe it’s all a distraction from the main event: the iPhone 5S. The remainders for Monday, November 12, 2012 aren’t made of money.

  • Opinion: Bugs & Fixes: Workarounds for two preference bugs

    Apple tends to underplay any admission of bugs in its software. It doesn't even like to use the word "bug." Rather, it refers to fixing "issues." For example, in its support article on OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.2 Update Apple notes that "an issue in which Keychain may not be accessible" has been resolved. As in this case, such admissions typically do not get posted until after Apple has released the update that fixes the bug.

  • Opinion: Any phone in a storm

    I live in New Jersey, in an area hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy. Before the storm hit, my family took the traditional preparatory steps: We bought non-perishable foods, stocked up on water, took in our lawn furniture, and so on. But we also prepped our electronics for the coming storm—chiefly, by charging up our iPads, iPhones, and laptops.

  • Opinion: Ask the iTunes Guy: The iTunes Store and Apple IDs

    In this week’s Ask the iTunes Guy column, we look at a number of questions related to the iTunes Store and Apple IDs, and one question about a problem with iTunes launching at startup.

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: The world is flat

    Apple executive Eddy Cue gets a flattering write-up, Motorola gets a flat take-it-or-leave-it offer from Cupertino, and how to turn your older Mac's drives into a Fusion Drive in twenty-seven hours flat. The remainders for Wednesday, October 31, 2012 are flat broke.

  • Opinion: Review: Great Pumpkin delights but doesn't soar

    I’ve loved It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown—the 1966 TV special—since I was a kid, and I always look forward to my yearly viewing. But even as a child, I didn’t yearn for repeats: once a year was enough. The program, and its December counterpart, A Charlie Brown Christmas, are both warm and cozy.

  • Opinion: Would Steve Jobs have allowed Apple to launch the iPad mini?

    Steve Jobs was extremely outspoken and dismissive in his opinions of seven-inch tablets back in 2010. If he were around today, would Apple still have launched the iPad mini?

  • Opinion: Remains of the Day: Ice, ice, baby

    Apple’s leaks are coming from outside the building, the original iPad may not get left out in the cold on Tuesday, and one government agency is playing it as cool as iOS. (See what I did there?) The remainders for Monday, October 22, 2012 are just cold chillin’.
