Macs (PC’s) vs. iPads

Sadly (and acknowledging a bit of condescension), it appears necessary to explain to you why people prefer Macs (and PC’s in many cases) to iPads. So here we go.

Hey Tim, How About Some Flowcharts?

September 25, 2016 Abel Ray 0

Hey, Tim Cook, How about a flowchart app to go along with Pages, Numbers and Keynote? A simple one will do, with some of the basic flowchart symbols. Sure, we can manually link symbols together in Keynote, but it’s a pain. I’ve asked the MindMaple people the same thing. Cheers

Apple Pay Love

September 25, 2016 Abel Ray 0

Hey Tim, We love Apple Pay. We love the ease of use and security. Only four digits of the card are stored. Vendors don’t get our credit card information. I particularly love the notifications of all charges to the card, regardless of whether they’re made through Apple Pay or not. If my card’s stolen or my number’s stolen, I’ll get […]

The iPhone 7 Review by The Regular Guys

September 13, 2016 Abel Ray 0

Hey Tim Cook, Forget the naysayers, You did well with the new iPhone 7, as well as with the Apple Watch Series 2. The moaning and groaning from the irrational, click-bait pundits who think you should come out with a revolutionary product every two years is inane and self-serving. From our standpoint (the representatives of regular guys worldwide), you made […]

Hardware As A Service

Hey Tim Cook, hardware as a service is not about the payment plans; it’s about the way a company views its customers. From our standpoint, Apple still views its customers as hardware customers. Everything else is peripheral and meant to drive hardware sales. Viewing a customer as a client to whom you provide a service is a significant paradigm shift. […]

Save Yourself from the Hate

You turn on CNN and you see, over and over and over, and over, stories of hate and violence and backstabbing. Turn on Fox and you see the same thing, different voice. It’s all hate and violence, bitterness and blame. In these times crazy times, something vital has been lost. We must find it. Heysayer has an idea.

The BOIYD Epidemic

July 11, 2016 Abel Ray 1

Hey World, There is an epidemic in the United States. It’s an insidious disease. Unspoken. Like cancer in the 70’s, no one wants to admit she has it. It’s too painful, too fraught with self-judgment and shame. This is the pain of those who suffer from “But Only If You Do Syndrome”, also known as BOIYDism. Few will even say […]

Apple Is Becoming China

July 7, 2016 Abel Ray 0

Hey Tim Cook, A bit of irony: China locks down Apple’s iBooks and iTunes movies due to content restrictions while Apple rejects Happy Play Time citing its own content restrictions. Sexual apps are an egregious affront to humanity Well done, Tim. We think Happy Play Time is just awful. Women shouldn’t touch themselves, and men certainly shouldn’t be educated on […]
