I am working on moving this blog over to here, since this blog is sorely in need of an update both in design and backend.

Come back soon for updates.

I apologize that I haven't written anything in a long time. I haven't forgotten, nor completely abandoned my blog. School and work have been my life for the last several months and I haven't had much time to work on anything else. I do plan on posting in the future and I'm also potentially looking to move to a .com domain at some point so that I'm hosting and running the entire blog myself.
Stay tuned! Hopefully I'll post a couple times this summer and I'm hoping to post a bit more over the summer.

iPad mini announced!

Apple announced an iPad mini that is as thin as pencil and weighs just over half a pound, as light as a pad of paper. It has a 7.9" display. Apple has made the iPad so that it has the same resolution as the 1024 x 768 iPad 2, so no extra work for developers. It sports a 720p FaceTime HD camera, a 5MP iSight camera, and a dual core A5 chip, as well as having LTE. And even though it's a smaller form factor, it still has a 10-hour battery life! It starts at $329 for a 16GB Wi-Fi only.

New retina 13" MacBook Pro!

This morning, Apple announced an all-new 13" retina MacBook Pro. It is very similar to the 15" retina announced at WWDC. The one downside that I see is that it isn't user-serviceable and it doesn't have an optical drive. Not that I want an optical drive, but I want to be able to put a second hard drive in the optical bay for a lot more space. As a video editor, I really need the extra space.

Live streaming of the Apple event today

Today is another big day! Apple
has scheduled an event for 10:00 AM PDT where the rumors are that they will release the long-awaited iPad mini. Apple decided to live stream this event, something they haven't done for awhile. Usually Apple releases the video later in the day, but there hasn't been a live stream in a couple years. That's all changed now! You can watch live video from the event here:

Note: you must use Safari or iOS to watch the event. Chrome for OS X doesn't work :-(

October 23rd

It's been awhile since I've written, since I've been busy, but there's news!! The rumors are confirmed; there is going to be an Apple event on October 23rd. Attendees began receiving invitations on Tuesday, according to iMore and Arstechnica. The tagline? "We've got a little more to show you." And interesting tagline, especially considering that all the rumors are pointing to the release of a smaller (little), 7.85" iPad. In addition, Apple is also rumored to refresh the iPad 3, with the new Lightning connector, as well as iMacs, Mac minis, 13-inch retina MacBook Pro, and the release of iTunes 11.

It's looking like it will be a very interesting event. The only thing that I'm almost completely sure about: the iPad mini (or the iPad Junior, as Dan Benjamin likes to call it), and the release of iTunes 11. There's been a lot of news about the rumored iPad, dating all the way back to February 15th with an article from the Wall Street Journal. Over the course of the last few months, there have been so many rumors about the smaller iPad that it lends quite a bit of credibility to the existence of such a device.
iTunes 11 was previewed at the iPhone 5 event, and the release date? October. It would make sense that iTunes 11 would be released this next Tuesday along with the iPad mini. We'll just have to wait to see then!
