Looks like I was right. An update to iWork for iCloud came out today.
I was listening to episode 20 of The Prompt podcast. The guys talked, amongst other things, about the failures of collaboration in iWork for iCloud. They were right on many things and I have a few points to add and a few subjects that I would like to complement…
Apple must move quickly. Their reputation for web apps is already horrible and I sincerely hope they can change that. This should be among the top priorities for Apple because at the moment, Apple over-promises and under-delivers which isn’t typical for the company. I hope the new features will roll-out quickly and that new versions of native apps which include collaboration will be released soon.
I was just talking to Fido about my cell phone contract. I currently do not have a contract for my cell phone and basically wanted to go from my monthly bill to a contract so I could get the subsidized iPhone 5s.
My current plan costs me 56$ per month and I get the following :
To get a comparable plan now, I would need to pay 75$ a month and would only get 1 Gigabyte of data.
Is Canada so far behind in technology? I must say I’m not proud to say that three large companies dominate our cell phone market and it frustrates me that even with new regulations from the CRTC, Canadians pay more.
The price for an iPhone contract used to start at 50$ (for three years). It now starts at 75$ per month (for two years). As a student, I have trouble affording this. But this isn’t the worst part…
For comparable services, Canadians will pay the same price, except that now, that price only gives them two years of service! Can anyone explain to me how the CRTC is helping Canadians with their cellphone bills. At the moment, I couldn’t be more discouraged!
It’s been 1 year since I joined tumblr. Haven’t been active recently… But that is about to change…
I think I just read one of the most ridiculous articles ever written. Published on PCWorld, it’s entitled “Five Apple turkeys in 2012" and is written by Tom Kaneshige. Let’s deconstruct to see just how ridiculous it is.
The Maps app is Apple’s biggest turkey this year for a number of reasons. Maps is arguably the most important app on the iPhone and other mobile devices. You just can’t get it wrong. Also, Apple’s decision to come out with its own maps app and remove Google Maps from the App Store makes Apple look petty.
Most important app? Isn’t there the phone app? The messaging app? The browser? The email app? And since when was Google Maps available in the App Store? Never! I wonder how Apple could’ve removed an app that never existed in the App Store.
There’s nothing really new about this fourth-generation iPad, either-only a faster chip and a Lightning connector. Apple calls this version “the iPad with Retina Display,” but it was the third-generation iPad that introduced Retina to the tablet.
Twice the performance, HD front-facing camera, new more durable and reversible connector and international LTE. You’re right… Nothing new!
Like Jobs, Forstall is passionate about products and, by many accounts, difficult to work with. He reportedly refused to apologize for the shortcomings of Apple Maps. The Forstall firing signals a new kind of post-Jobs Apple led by a supply-chain guru who believes in collaboration. Is Apple getting soft? You bet.
Firing one of the executives responsible for the creation of the iPhone definitely is a “soft move”.
When Apple came out with a new connector for the iPhone 5 and fourth-generation iPad, called Lightning, Apple consumers who had bought a boatload of iOS peripherals breathed a sigh. Companies such as hotels that outfitted rooms with iOS peripherals breathed a heavier one.
Such is the world of Apple, where Apple lords over the masses-not only hardware but software, too. Apple determines what apps get into the App Store and reserves the right to remove them whenever it wants without any explanation.
Of course, Apple is evil! They release a new reversible and more durable connector that makes their phones thinner and lighter. They refuse apps from the App Store which keeps it free from malware (unlike hum hum, Android). Yes they are evil.
While the outage itself isn’t a big deal, the underlying message is the real turkey: Apple is becoming just another tech company.
Yup, just another tech company. Except they make more profits and sales than all the other companies. I guess you have to choose your battles.

Rene Ritchie got an exclusive preview of the new version of 1Password for iOS. It’s definitely an app I could not live without and I can’t wait to see the changes made to it. I especially can’t wait for iCloud sync. 1Password is the only reason why I keep Dropbox on my computers.
A few days ago, I told you I had just installed Clear on my Mac. After a few days of use, here are a few things I would like to be improved. However, I would like to stress the fact that I love this app and these are only ideas that could improve the experience…
I’d like to congratulate the developers and encourage them to keep doing their great work!
I mean come on guys, let’s not forget this! Apple is, I believe, the only company that truly reveals the number of SALES they had.
Loving Clear on my Mac!
