Mac OS 10.7 - Good. MacBook Air - Crap.

Image
On October 20th, Apple held their "Back to the Mac" event where they released 3 big things. One of the three was iLife 11. More improvements than the last, free for new macs, $50 for upgrade. I think it should be free like Microsoft thinks so. The second was Mac OS 10.7. For the 8th release of the 10 year old operating system, they brought over some iOS features like an App Store, but for Mac, they brought over a program launcher with characteristics of iOS like the folders, and added FaceTime. The third and last thing they released was a new MacBook Air. The MacBook Air can officially be called a netbook because of its 11 inch screen. The new MacBook Air is a lot like the last generation, but with two USB ports and an SD card slot, which is only on the 13 inch model. I think that the 11 inch screen is something that should've happened a while ago, but still nice to see a netbook sized Mac. What I don't like about this is the price. $1,000 for the low end model! WHAT…

Would you use Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office?

Image
For a very long time, if you wanted to use a word processor, you would go to the store and buy a copy of Microsoft Office, or AppleWorks. These things aren't cheap. Most of the time, they can cost over $100! But how does free sound? Most of the time, free is good, so if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a word processor and all of the stuff it comes with, why not try out Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office? Google Docs comes with a word processor, presentation, spreadsheets, drawing, and you can create forms for your website. Here's the thing about Google: They make stuff that works good and is good! From writing an essay, to presenting to your company, the Google Docs suite comes with almost everything you need to make it work great. The only downside is the word processor doesn't really tell you how many pages you have typed up, and the presentation webware doesn't allow you to have action buttons to go to another slide. But still you get so much for…

Google is taking over the world

Image
If you don't know what Google is, have you been living under a rock? They're everywhere! Web search, shopping, cell phones, internet, television, etc, but now your car! Google has created a car that drives itself! And believe it or not, is safer and faster than a human driver. Only one accident has been reported and it was not Google's fault. Google is taking over everything! If you would like to leave a reply to this, tweet your reply with #AGV in the tweet.





Updates to the channel, and the website.

Note: This post was from the AnthonyGVideos Blog. It does not represent this website.





As you know, I have made a new YouTube channel EpicAnthonyTV, link in the links box. That channel is for sketch comedy videos and anything I find funny, or at least amusing. And I have AnthonyGVideos for technology. Except, I find myself having more fun doing a comedy video than a video on tech. While technology is a topic I still enjoy, I like doing EpicAnthonyTV videos more. So I have decided to change the style of AnthonyGVideos. Since the name AnthonyGVideos is not linked to any specific topic, it doesn't have to be related to tech, which is why I chose this channel name. So I have decided to make AnthonyGVideos a channel where I can vlog, or do things that aren't funny. That is all I am doing. I am not closing the account or abandoning it. Now to the website. As you can see if you are on the homepage, I have made the website into a blog. I find the blog format to look better than the prev…

Want a website? Here are some ways to make them.

Image
Do you want a website? Well, it isn't that hard when you know what to look for and what to do. A website starts with getting a domain name. There are many choices to choose from here. I use Google Apps, which allows you to create a number of email addresses if you want many people to be a part of a site, and those people can make their own websites under the domain you choose. Other choices are GoDaddy, Enom, and many others that you can do a search on. Now that you've got your domain name, it's time to make the site. There are many ways to do this as well. You can make it yourself using software and some knowledge of HTML, or you can go the "easy" way and go with a platform that makes it for you. If you are looking for something where you don't need to host anything, you can go with WordPress.com, Blogger, Google Sites, and Tumblr. If you want to make your website anyway you want, and you don't mind paying extra for hosting fees, you can use WordPress.or…

Mac OS 10 on non-Apple hardware? Not gonna happen!

Image
Everyone knows what this logo is for. Apple. The computer, music player, software and phone company that everyone knows about. One of their products that is well known is Mac OS X, the OS for the Apple computers. But why does it just have to be Apple computers? They run on Intel, so shouldn't it work on my PC! Well, it does, but you're not supposed to. It breaks the EULA you have to agree to. And if they find out you are running Mac OS X on an unauthorized machine, it won't be pretty. But what if Apple allowed Mac OS X on any kind of computer? I've wondered this myself, because if it was legal, I'd put OS X on my computer because I like it. But Apple does this for a reason. They keep their software on their hardware because they know what works right, and what is compatible. This keeps the operating system running smooth, and the way it should. But it would be nice to see OS X someday coming to the PC and Mac. Apple and Microsoft would dominate the computer industr…
