Freshly Squeezed OpEd: And So It Begins

Now for the latest on my new layout. As usual, Apple under promised. I received both my iPhone 13 mini and iPad mini about a week ahead of schedule. Now I’m going through all the cruft I’ve collected on both devices over the years. It’s amazing how much stuff you can...

Freshly Squeezed Reviews: Composing And Recording On-The-Go

Eons ago, I was a musician. Technically, musicians will point-out that whether you’re playing or not, you’re a musician for life. Coincidentally, all my years of musicianship help me in writing these reviews: the flow of a sentence by using specific words in a precise...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: The Siri Wars

Because of disability issues, it's easier for me to use my voice than to type. This means that I lean quite heavily and often on Siri.Though not the sharpest crayon out there, it'll do. Most of us have likely experienced the odd situation when someone says "Hey Siri'...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: I Finally Pulled The Trigger

If you've been playing along at home, you know of all the flip-flopping I've done trying to decide on my new layout. I finally did it with the help of MindNode to weigh the pros and cons and Apple dangling shiny things in front of me. So here's what I wound up...

Freshly Squeezed Reviews: I Have To Admit I’m Using Beta

For a slow news/rumor month, there’s an awfully lot of change going on. Believe it or not, it’s already been practically a year since the M1 SoC turned the concept of computing upside down. You can accomplish what with 8GB RAM? Not to be left in the rearview mirror,...

Freshly Squeezed Reviews: Safari Technology Preview

The Hills Are Alive With Lossless Music

Some people use music as aural wallpaper, like walking into a room and mindlessly turning on the TV. It keeps them company to simply chug along throughout their day. Others play music because it’s their favorite song(s). I wager any of us quickly turn up the car...

A Dedication

  I don’t know where to begin this tribute. This man defied all odds and lived a life that would be fulfilling for anyone. Darren Carr had a weekly request show podcast. He would play requests that were sent in, no matter how off the beaten trail the music was or...

Let The Backpedaling Commence

After the conclusion of Apple’s April event, many You Tubers and bloggers (myself included) began our assault on the new M1 iMac. Personally, I likened the design to a 5th grader who used the iPad software feature where you can make a perfect square, circle,...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Unmask what?

Have you done it yet? All the cool kids are doing it. Doing what you ask? Why taking your masks off – the masks on your avatars and logos. I have a friend that does several podcasts a week. She recently unmasked all her avatars and logos and proudly proclaimed it...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Apple, remember wheelchair users?

WWDC21 has come and gone as one usually does. As always, there were interesting innovations and some glaring oversights. I should have expected the one oversight, as it’s not the first time. We’ve been to this dance before and our partner stood us up once again. It...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Apple Nickel and Diming
