Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs

A Gold iPhone

Really? It'll probably sell well, but I'll stick with black. And the bright green case I use to find my phone, because black is tough to see sometimes. 🙂

Explaining the iBooks Lawsuit

TidBITS has a great explanation that makes everything pretty clear. Apple isn't evil, and the industry may have gone this route in the end, but how they got there wasn't without fault or blame.

Siri takes initiative to learn how to pronounce names in iOS 7. Great. Big freakin' deal. Siri still can't spell the word "Erik" any way other than "Eric," on my phone or the phones of my friends, and there's no way to teach it to do so. If your name is Michele with one "l"? […]
