iPhone 5 Not Likely Until Fall

by: E. Werner Reschke | Mar 02, 2012

It is a given that on next Wednesday, March 7th, Apple will reveal the iPad 3. What's not a given is what will happen next. My colleague has written a nice article about how the iPad 2 will probably show up in the $399 price range, yet the mystery beyond March 7th lingers. Apple is good at that. Fortunately, T-GAAP has some hints as to what Apple's roadmap is likely to follow.

iPad 3 Software to be Revolutionary

by: Mark Reschke | Mar 01, 2012

On Wednesday, March 7, Apple is highly likely to unveil the iPad 3. The rumored hardware looks to be breathtaking. A retina display, massive graphics and CPU processing power, and a camera that will rival that of the iPhone, all while sending this goodness up and down to clouds everywhere with 4G speeds. iPad 3 is going to be a major leap in iPad technology, so much so we'll wonder why the iPad 2 wasn't called iPad 1S.

But for all the hoopla and sex appeal iPad 3 hardware will contain, it's the core of the product, the software, that will send would-be rivals back to the drawing board all over again.

iPad 3 and the New Apple TV

by: Karl Johnson | Feb 29, 2012

Apple will officially announce the iPad 3 on March 7. This new iPad will have a retina display and faster quad core processor. With the Retina, the iPad will have the capability of displaying 1080p videos and movies.

The Apple TV is one of the best accessories for the iPad. It can mirror the iPad display onto a much larger screen. This is great for watching movies, sports, pictures, games, and presentations. While the current Apple TV should be able to mirror the iPad 3, it will not look as good since the Apple TV only displays 720p. That may change on March 7.

MacBreak Weekly or Weakly?

by: Mark Reschke | Feb 28, 2012

Have you noticed the change? If you are long-time listener to MacBreak Weekly, hosted by Leo Laporte and his tech compadres, there's little doubt you could escape it. MacBreak jumped into the podcast era early on, and with the well known Leo Laporte, it quickly grew into the podcast to listen to for all things Apple. But the show has shifted axis over the past few years, thus Three Guys and a Podcast felt it was time to give MacBreak Weekly listeners a voice – in what we believe is a growing concern amongst many listeners that MacBreak Weekly is now longer a Mac or Apple-centric show. We've also made this a key topic in Epsiode 73: Scaling Engine from China.

Safari Needs Better Cookie Controls

by: Karl Johnson | Feb 23, 2012

 It was recently discovered that Google has been circumventing Safari's cookie controls. Google has been leaving third party cookies from its sites and ad sites they own. This happens even when the user tells Safari to block them in the application's preference panel.

Cookies are used to set site preferences so users can see the same site next time they return. They are also used to log into an account and set location information. While these are good things, cookies can also be used to keep track of what the user does or where the user goes on the Internet. Some may be ok with this, but many are not. The user should have this control, not the ad agencies.

Lawsuits notwithstanding, earlier this week Samsung took a few shots at Apple, with a tone that could only be described as defensively whiny, conjuring up images of a certain Star Wars character (must I mention Mark Hamill?...). Samsung appears to be in very vulnerable in the TV space, as Product Manager Chris "Skywalker" Moseley stated at their Prague forum:

Show hidden files with the Terminal

by: Karl Johnson | Feb 15, 2012

The Terminal is a very powerful tool that comes with the Mac. It gives access to the core operating system via a command line. One of the cool things the Terminal can for you is to change hidden preferences.

There are many "hidden" files on every Mac. These hidden files contain folder icons, system data, and application information. Some of these can can be removed and they can take up a large amount of storage. There is an easy Terminal command to show and hide these files.

Best Pixelmator Learning Resources

by: Karl Johnson | Feb 14, 2012

Pixelmator is the top selling application in the Mac App Store Graphics & Design category. It is a very good photo editor for less than $30. Many things that can be accomplished using Photoshop, can also be done with Pixelmator.

Pixelmator’s website has a number of tutorials. It used to be that these were the only resources available. That has now changed since Pixelmator has grown in popularity. Some additional Pixelmator resources are listed below:
