Apple Fanboy-dom - 3 month recap

Been exclusively using Apple products for my computing needs for 3 months now and figured it was time for a recap to discuss what I’ve liked and disliked thus far. Likes I’m still loving the ease of use and especially loving the way all of the devices work together and […]

All it took was owning an iPhone for a week …

… to completely sway my opinion of the brand. The Friday before Father’s Day I broke down and bought a 27” iMac to replace my 4 year old Dell PC with absolutely no intention of running Linux on it. Since then, I coerced my employer to upgrade the dev team […]
