Amazon and impressive $0.01 discount on iPod touch

I guess that everybody would like to get the best price when they buy an iPod touch; often you don't find any special offers as Apple controls the prices. Sure we had a case recently with a newly opened store here in Switzerland where they were offering a 10% discount on all items in their shops, including iPod. I was very close to ordering one but decided to wait a bit. The discount of 10% is not something to laugh…

Daniels experience with iPhone

Daniel Klein is a proud owner of an iPhone which he bought 11 days ago. He is so happy about it that he blogged about it; see the post here, sorry but it is in German.

Is Boot Camp for Mac OS X final now?

I consider this great news, just too bad that I mainly use my Mac Pro for Windows XP. I'm using Boot Camp for this of course, which allows OS X users to install various versions of Windows, such as XP and Vista. It includes all the drivers needed for the hardware. When all is installed it is possible to…

My first thoughts on Apple iPhone

One of the very hot topics today is the iPhone that was announced by Apple yesterday. Most people (who have been following Apple and the rumors) expected them to announce it yesterday, but I doubt they expected exactly what was announced. Widescreen iPod, internet, OS X and a phone... all in one device. They claim they are reinventing the mobile phone, looking at the Apple site for the iPhone and watching the keynote presentation you can surely get that feeling…
