Apple Rocks

Bought the iPod Touch 2 weeks ago and the battery life on it was terrible. Made an appointment at the Apple store at the Gateway on Monday. After telling them of my problem they apologized and promptly handed me a new Touch!!! Now the battery life is awesome. I haven't charged it since Monday and with WiFi blazing it is going strong. This is why Apple will always rule over anything Gates will create!


In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. ~ Steve Jobs

Labor of Love

For the last 8 years I have had the opportunity to photograph the Weber/Davis VIP soccer league. It has become a Labor of Love for me. I love to donate my time and photos to some of the most awesome kids in the world. The group consists of 45 kids ranging from age 4 to 25. My payment comes in lots of hugs and smiles while I photograph and watch these kids get the opportunity to play soccer. I learned a great lesson this week. Early in the week I lost 2 major bids that I have had for the past 3 years. I was devastated. The total loss of business was over $300,000. My week was terrible and my mood was worst. When I stepped out on the field with the kids and saw their smiling faces I forgot about all of my worries. These kids loved me just as much as Kel and Ari do. Life is far to short to worry about the world. It is amazing to me how the Lord continues to humble a person when they need it the most.

Love the WiFi! Love the Calender! Love the whole package! Will never use my Palm Pilot again.

Apple’s Rising Influence in Business

Very interesting cover story in BusinessWeek about soaring demand for Macs inside of companies. In some ways, this is an inevitable outgrowth of the success of the iPod. Sales of the iPod goose home sales of Macs, and once you’ve got a Mac, you never want to work in Windows again. Writer Peter Burrows says it well:

But now the call is coming from mainstream users, people who may have started off with an iPod, then bought a Mac at home and no longer want a “Windows-by-day, Mac-by-night” existence.
