1. Things Babies Born in 2011 Will Never Know
Think back 15, 20, or 25 years…have you ever wondered if there were things that we never knew about or how important they were to someone else. Well in 2011, items such as video tape, paper maps, dial-up Internet, travel agents and wired phones will be things of the past. Listen as we chime in on items that will be obsolete soon and discuss items that will stand the test of time.
2.Mac App Store
The Mac App store is an excellent addition to Apple OS family. We find out who’s been doing their research and who hasn’t this week as we open up the Mac App Store. The App Store opens up a host of new opportunities for Mac users and could prove to be very financial healthy for Apple and 3rd party developers.
3.Verizon iPhone announcement, Details, & AT&T Response
This week brought several comments about the iPhone joining the Verizon network. After Verizon missed its opportunity a few years back, Verizon is set to make a splash in the cell business with the iPhone. Verizon has a strong 3G network and was rated the 2nd best cell phone carrier domestically in 2010. We hope the move is beneficial to the consumer and not just the pocketbooks of these companies.

Receiving forum posts from 2006 as a form of support is neither sufficient or professional in our eyes. Dave puts in his two cents and is not surprised by the lack of support. Apple misses the mark big-time this week.
