Macbook Airheaded?

12 03 2008

131583-mbair_large.jpgThe Mac Book Air, known by some as the MBA, recently came out at a price of nearly 1800 dollars. It claims to be the “World’s Thinnest Notebook”, which hardly makes up for its inferiority. What it doesn’t have is a FireWire, a vital connection port; nor does it have the power to create 30 in. display graphics. This is highly annoying, as one would expect this to be, lets say, la crème de la crème. Another faulty mechanism is the battery power which tops at five hours, which although is a slight improvement still is not worth it to shell out the extra cash for anything else than bragging rights. I do recognize that for an average youth the computers ability’s would be sufficient, but the price would be too massive, and for anyone with any serious work to be done such as video editing or web cam functions would be very disappointed by the potential of the notebook. The one high point of the computer is its narrow design (no pun intended). This design is flawed however when one try’s to fit it into an average briefcase or back pack, or even between their arm pit and wrist, the fact is its just too wide. So the basis of my point being, the Mac book air is hardly more portable than the previous of its family, its pricy, and though it has heightened technology it still is less capable for the average job than another laptop, even, god forbid, a P.C.

jailbreak_20.jpgThe iPhone Dev Tea has miraculously jail-broken the 2.0 firmware, months before its out. Should Apple just make the iPhone open ended and allow the jailbreaks, because the Dev Team has definitely proven that there gonna jailbreak whatever you throw at them. People would like it if they could have all the third party apps, and the well developed apps distributed through the app store.

iPhone 2.0 Breakdown

11 03 2008

Okay, sorry it’s so late, but here is the 2.0 breakdown:

There were many announcements such as the enterprise capabilities for push Email, Calander, and Contacts. And the SDK announcement with the applications demos from Apple, EA, AOL, and Sega. I liked all of them, especially the AIM application, but I would have to say my favorite of the application was Sega’s Monkey Ball. Sega’s Monkey Ball seemed to run smoothly with the iPhones, and take advantage of all of it’s capabilities.

Fathom Fruit

10 03 2008

Okay, you might be wondering why we decided to call this website Fathom Fruit, so I’ll break it down…Definition’s from dictionary.com
Fathom: to penetrate to the truth of; comprehend; understand: to fathom someone’s motives. Fruit: We used this as in Apple.
Fathom: Understand Fruit: Apple
Therefore the name Fathom Fruit was used as Understand Apple, because we will be blogging about Apple, and Apple products. However as we moved along with the site we realized our passions were spread and therefore so should our topics be, so it slowly became a larger entertainment based site. The name just stuck.
