Hopefully Apple Watch will be next!
 
Ingress on Android Wear puts hacking Portals at your fingertips while your phone stays in your pocket. The next phase in augmented reality is here. Heads up, Agents. It’s time to move.

Apple began shipping the new 12-inch Retina MacBook this week (more on it in a future post) and with it, a totally redesigned power adapter based on USB-C. (There are a lot of opinions about Apple'...

I took a look at the latest Apple waerz at the local Apple Store last week. I couldn't help but wonder why a 2nd USB-C port couldn't made it into the design. On the other (right) side.

Because of the mic port already being there? And if that tiny mic port were moved further forward? How about removing the mic port if only one port fits?

After all it is the most un-Apple-like thing. It's a "legacy" port if ever there was one. With another USB-C port I could have the option of a USB-mic (with adapter) or any other peripheral. Why shouldn't Apple say "get a USB-C microphone you Luddite!"?

... I'm liking the sound of that :-)

Super fun game (from a non-gamer). Join the #enlightened!
We embed in the field and go behind the scenes of Google's augmented reality game, Ingress. Is walking through the streets of hundreds of countries the future of gaming?

Introduction
Jason D. O’Grady developed an affinity for Apple computers after using the original Lisa, and this affinity turned into a bona-fide obsession when he got the original 128 KB Macintosh in 1984.

He started writing one of the first Web sites about Apple (O’Grady’s PowerPage; www.powerpage.org) in 1995 and is considered to be one of the fathers of blogging and a frequent speaker at the Macworld Expo conference and a member of the conference faculty.

In 2006 he set a precedent that independent journalists are entitled to the same protections under the First Amendment as members of the mainstream media.

O’Grady is the author of seven books, including The Nexus One Pocket Guide, The Droid Pocket Guide, The Google Phone Pocket Guide, and The Garmin nüvi Pocket Guide (Peachpit Press), the author of Corporations That Changed the World: Apple Inc. (Greenwood Press), and a contributor to The Mac Bible (Peachpit Press). In addition, he has contributed to numerous Mac publications over the years.

When he’s not writing about Apple for ZDNet at The Apple Core (http:// www.zdnet.com/blog/apple), he enjoys DJing, wakeboarding, surfing, flying drones and driving RC cars

This is my favorite car wash in the area (and I've tried 'em all). It's relatively new (opened in the summer of '12) and if you get the Silver wash ($11) they take out the floor mats and clean them for you. The waiting area is comfortable too. Get a book of washes for a discount or a free wash with an oil change.
