Thoughts on use of the Apple TV (2015) in the Enterprise
November 9, 2015
Last week, as I was spending quality time with the 4th generation Apple TV, I was brainstorming about potential corporate uses for the unit. It might seem like a strange activity, but the Apple TV already has a number of non-media apps on the tvOS App store. An app like Zillow or Airbnb might be a little strange at first, but when you think about sharing your research with your family/SO, it makes a fairly nice display. On a similar vein to that, it’s very common to have TVs in conference rooms these days to hook up computers. Many businesses opt to use Apple TV’s and airplay for the hookup. However, what apps could be used?
Screen Issues on a Lenovo X201 running Ubuntu 10.04
August 16, 2010
Recently I was given a Lenovo X201 which had Ubuntu installed on it. The problem is that every time the computer booted up, the Ubuntu would come on screen briefly, then the screen would go black and the machine would encounter a hard lockup. You could tell it was locked up because the shift light was blinking (an unusual indicator, but it works).
iPhone 4 – Revolutionary becomes dull?
June 24, 2010
The iPhone 4 (Courtesy of Engadget) So the iPhone 4 is officially out today; I thought it was a good time to reflect about the history of the iPhones. Back in 2007, the world was taken by storm with the original announcement and release of the iPhone. The device was in-arguably revolutionary. It wasn’t like any cellphone seen to date. In 2008 we saw the release of the iPhone 3G, which included this cool new feature called “3G” which was on numerous phones even before the iPhone released in 2007. In 2009 the world was taken by aimless wandering with the release of the iPhone 3GS. It was… faster. That’s it, just faster. Now in 2010 we have the iPhone 4 (which actually is the fourth version, unlike the 3G being the second version). But is it that great?
