Freshly Squeezed OpEd: A.I. and me

“Reality. What a concept.” - Robin Williams A.I. is one of those generational flashpoints. We’ve seen only a smidgen of the incredible things it will afford us. The first thing that comes to mind is the truly amazing things it promises to help people with disabilities...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Doom Lurks Around The Corner, As Required

One thing that the majority of Apple devotees have in common is paranoia. We embrace rumors tightly to our technology loving bosoms with a death grip. And this time is no different at all. Apple has raised prices on some services. What betrayal! We have spent years...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: iPad Lost

A while back, I was so smitten with the newly released iPad Mini 6 that I traded in my newly purchased iPad Air 8 to snatch up one of these new lovelies. It had a new design (actually a small iPad Pro design) but it had USB-C. Faster file transfer (at least from...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Automating The Disabled

Those of you who follow this blog regularly (seriously, go outside and catch some air) know that I have health issues. I’ve had Multiple Sclerosis for half of my life. But this past year, my body decided to up the ante and throw in a few more maladies for giggles. If...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Now I Begin

I finally pulled the trigger, completing my rig. But I had to improvise due to the chip shortage. Instead of a 24” 4.5K iMac, I went with a 16 GB RAM, 1 TB MBA. Thirteen inches is too small for these aging eyes, so I went in the opposite direction. I purchased a 32”...

Freshly Squeezed Op-Ed: Apple, Gimmie Some Truth

I was a regular bar playing musician for many, many years. Despite limitations due to health, until now, I still dabble in composition. When Apple announced Spatial Audio, their version of Dolby Atmos, I was very interested to hear their results. I wanted to revisit...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: It’s Crying Time Again

Every year I’m afforded the opportunity to rewrite the same Op-Ed from the previous year.   Ok, let’s start by opening the thesaurus. Look up Apple fanboi or girl. You’ll find the synonym ‘gullible’. After lo these many years, at what point is it going to dawn...

Freshly Squeezed OpEd: Happy Happy

I'd like to wish each and everyone of you a Happy Gnu Year. Thank you for putting up with my eradicate schedule. I will do my darnedest to post more often this year. It's the least I can do for you spending some of your time indulging in my dribble. I hope that 2022...

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 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 OpEd: Stop it, Just Stop It

I watch a lot of YouTube. Actually, I watch way too much YouTube. I often use it for research purposes sometimes. Pathetic, eh? I’m sure you’ve seen a plethora of videos regarding “jellygate”. Apple didn’t create the problem, it’s a hardware limitation (though I see...
