Apple watch – The game changer

Posted by:

applewatchI’m a big fan of apple products.  I have ipads, iphones, macbook pros and ipods.  Apple is the company that seems to always show up at the party late but always leaves the party as the most popular person there.  Even though they may not have the best product there.

Outlook 2011 for OSX and Mountain Lion Performance Problem

Posted by:

Ever since I upgraded to Mountain Lion my Outlook client’s performance absolutely sucked!.  I was surprised that Microsoft did not have a solution for this nor could I find any resolution from Apple.  I eventually came across this solution -> https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4149013?start=0&tstart=0

Microsoft didn’t kill Wordperfect – Novell Did…. Sounds Like history is ready to repeat itself.

Posted by:

wordperfect LogoAn outstanding anti-trust suit existed against Microsoft on whether they had acted inappropriately in aiding in the demise of Wordperfect.  Microsoft took action and asked for the case to be closed.  The judge in the case found that it was not the actions of Microsoft that killed Wordperfect.  It was the actions, or rather, the inaction of Novell that killed the product.

At the time that Windows98 had been released, ...
