The news has been plentiful since my last post and one was even a major news story in the world of Apple. As I’ve said in previous post, I am not here to write about what you have already heard in the tech news but just to give my opinion about it.
First things first. Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple and left Tim Cook in charge. Apparently, Jobs’ health isn’t doing very well but I do think he is more concerned about more important things than just Apple. He has a personal life and family and that should always come first. If he felt this was the time to step down and let more able bodies run the company then I respect that decision. He has been a great CEO and I have enjoyed all of the keynotes that I’ve heard him give over the last six years or so that I have been an Apple fan.
Do think anything is going to change at Apple? I doubt it. I have heard that Apple has a plan for the next two to five years and I believe they will continue with that plan even without Jobs.
My birthday was a little over a month ago and I received a stylus for my iPhone. It isn’t like a regular stylus that were used on the old Pocket PC. this stylus has a soft tip and won’t scratch the screen of the iPhone. Of course, it can be used on the iPod Touch and iPad. I did find it at Best Buy for $12.99 and thought that was a little high but if you use it then it’s a good deal.
One of the apps that I am using with the stylus is Note Taker. It allows you to take notes either by writing on the screen or with the keyboard. It does have a learning curve but if you go through the tutorial then it works like charm. The area you can write on is supposed to be about the size of a 4×6 index card. There is a free version but you can email your notes or make them into PDFs. For $1.99 the full version is a steal.
That’s going to do me for this week and I’m going to try and do better at getting these post out every week. Next week we will be looking at a service that I totally enjoy and I am so glad that it has finally made it to the United States.
