Kids Learn To Code With Apple’s Swift

5 Nov

Would you like your kid to be a future programmer? Over the summer, Apple launched an app called Playgrounds that teaches kids how to code. I recently spoke to some high school kids on choosing a career path and may asked where to start if they wanted to be a programmer. Starting with Swift and exploring Playgrounds is a good first start since it’s fun and starts with the basics. Where did you start your kids with coding?

Apple Can Disable Cellphones At Concerts

9 Jul

Did you know that Apple first applied for a patent back in 2011 to disable cellphones and just received the grant? The new technology will use an infrared signal that can detect and disable both still images and video recordings. What do you think of this technology? How would you feel if your cellphone was disabled to take picture or video at a concert? Gene Simmons from KISS says as long concert goers are notified ahead of time it’s OK.

Ubuntu Equals Free OS

10 Jan

You’ve heard of Microsoft Windows, Apple’s El Capitan or Snow Leopard, but have your heard of Ubuntu? Ubuntu for the first time in global history produced a fully functional operating system (OS) which supports both desktop and mobile simultaneously. You can download Ubuntu desktop and replace your current operating system whether it’s Windows or Mac OS, or, run Ubuntu alongside it. Convergence is the future, and products like the Ubuntu Edge are paving the way. If you are using this OS, what do you think of it?

Even a 2-year Old Can Use It

14 Oct

The iPad is designed so even a 2-year old can use it, how do you fare with it? As technology continues to press on, Apple remains true to simplicity by keeping their mobile devices easy to use. Is the iPhone 6 plus a step in the wrong direction? Have you moved from an Apple mobile device to Android and back or vice versa? Why do you choose your mobile platform? Is it based on price?

How To Setup Select Ringtones

7 Oct

How do you set up only certain ring tones to ring for some people and none for others? One way to do it with the ringers is have a ringtone that is completely silent. Set that to be the default ringtone, and then assign a normal ringtone to people you want to hear from. The drawback is that you may miss calls that way, but sometimes that just makes the most sense. Here’s a link that explains one way to do it. You can do it with GarageBand, but the link below looks much easier. Thanks to Mike Kimmel for the information how to do this trick.

Apple Store Workshops

29 Jul

The other day I was browsing the local Apply Store and I remembered the store offers free workshops on their line of products. A group of seniors were actively learning how to use the iPad while a group of pre-teens were being taught how to use a Mac Book Pro. The website says, “The Apple Store is much more than a store. We offer free workshops for people of all experience levels — we even offer youth programs like Apple Camp. And when you buy a new Mac, you can sign up for One to One training and take your skills to the next level.”

If you are on the fence debating if a Mac product is right for you, why not discover how to use them first hand. Even if you are not interested in Apple, why not learn how to use a tablet or home computer?

App Helps You Find Your Car Without Pinning Its Location

12 Jun

Mashable posted this last week, but I thought the app was really cool. They said, “Forget where you parked? Didn’t drop a pin to remember? Try Find My Car Smarter, an iOS app that keeps track of your vehicle when you aren’t. Using a small device and Bluetooth Smart, the app will locate and direct you to your car.” The app costs 99 cents and requires a one-time connection to your carport.
