Iconic: A Photographic Tribute to Apple Innovation

October 12, 2013 MGP 0

Iconic uses vivid color and detail to document Apple’s journey in design, form and function — and looks back at over 35 years of Apple innovation. Four years in the making, the author captured over 150,000 photos of nearly every product Apple has made, including rare prototypes and even packaging. Complementing the photography are forewords and essays from an impressive group of luminaries, commentators and influencers in the Apple community. […]

jOBS – Official Trailer

June 21, 2013 MGP 0

Given that wildly ficticious clip from this upcoming film that circulated months back, I’m not getting my hopes up too much. Even Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak was appalled at the inaccuracy of the clip and holds no optimism for it. But, for as many Hollywood fabrications that will predictably fly, I still want to see it, perhaps as a cultural curiosity, but also because it discusses at least a couple […]

This robotic baby boy was built with funding from the National Science Foundation and serves cognitive A.I. and human-robot interaction research. With high definition cameras in the eyes, Diego San sees people, gestures, expressions, and uses A.I. modeled on human babies, to learn from people, the way that a baby hypothetically would.

The idea is simple enough: take the Engadget content and reformat it as a free digital magazine for mobile devices — particularly tablets. It’s been done before; in fact, Flipboard conceptually does this with RSS feeds, Twitter and Facebook posts, and more. What stands out from those previous efforts is the […]

With the iPhone 4S came a little technology called Siri. It’s like a personal assistant… that gets things right most of the time. Some folks, however, need a bit of an adjustment period with it… In all likelihood, this video is NSFW.

Steven P. Jobs (1955-2011)

I was a Mac geek when being a Mac geek was certainly NOT cool. Before that, I was a computer nerd when being into computers and liking Apple products were even less cool. Now, I’m an enthusiastic Apple user and fan in an age where there are many who love and many who hate the company. Whether it’s 1985 or 1993 or 2011, I’ve been there. Not for the mindless […]
