Ladies and gentlemen, Thanksgiving is upon us, so here is the wisest advice I have to give for the holiday:

Relax, spend time with your friends and family, eat some amazing food, show some cool Mac and iOS tips to the people around you and just enjoy the holiday.

We’ll be back tomorrow with more Mac and iOS mobile news, updates and information as to every nifty Black Friday deal we can get our hands in.

In the meantime, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at the PowerPage!!!

With summer winding down, it’s time for one last nifty thing: Labor Day.

Yep, that day where we celebrate work by playing all day.

With that in mind, the staff of the PowerPage will be taking the day off and will be back tomorrow with everything Mac and everything mobile.

And, until midnight tonight, I believe it’s somehow required that you gather friends and/or family, get some good food together, laugh, talk and we’ll see your bad selves tomorrow.

Happy Labor Day, guys!!!!

Happy Fourth of July from O’Grady’s PowerPage!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, in honor of the Fourth of July, the staff of O’Grady’s PowerPage will be taking the day off and spending it with friends and family and will return with all the Mac and iOS mobile news you can shake a petrified gopher at.

That being said, take the day, get outside, hit up a barbecue, see your friends and detach yourself from technology for a day. Trust me, it’ll still be here when you get back.



As for my own plans, I’m hitting up a picnic and am determined to destroy any and all opponents in the potato sack race (even if they turn out to be small children). Nearly three weeks has been spent training for said potato sack race (as recorded in this stunning montage video) and I’m determined to make this happen.

Happy Fourth, everybody!!!

Happy Memorial Day from O’Grady’s PowerPage!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Memorial Day, it’s pretty darn nice outside (sitting in an airport in Dulles, Virginia awaiting a flight back to the Bay area) and there’s no better reason to get some friends, family, your Mac and iOS devices and some tasty food together to celebrate the holiday.

That being said, we’ll be back tomorrow with the latest Mac mobile device news.

Enjoy the holiday, enjoy your friends and happy Memorial Day from O’Grady’s PowerPage

Sending PowerPage’s love down a well…

Guys, it’s not often that we do this, so bear with us.

On February 24th, Washington, D.C.-area comedian, Geek Comedy Tour member and die-hard Mac nerd Joe Deeley suffered a moderate stroke while driving home from dinner with his family. In the following weeks, members of D.C.’s stand up comedy scene have been able to raise funds to help the Deeley family with thousands of dollars worth of medical expenses and Joe himself is progressing nicely through the rehabilitation process.

What I’d like to propose is the following: Joe has been a friend since I began doing stand up seven years ago, has always been there, and despite a slight penchant for narcolepsy on long road trips, has literally been the nicest human being one could hope to meet. Joe, like many of you, has also been a long-time Mac geek, having worked with every Mac he could get his hands on, enjoyed every minute of it and has long been someone I could go to with iMovie questions.

If you can, please take a gander at the following video and if you can donate a few shekels to help his family with the bills or help spread the word, it’d make an enormous difference.

We Need Your Feedback: Do the battery improvements in iOS 5.1 work for you?

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s been some contention here among the PowerPage staff as to whether the battery improvements in Apple’s recently-released iOS 5.1 update genuinely work or if this is part of Steve Jobs’/Apple’s Reality Distortion Field.

Within this inter-staff contention, voices have been raised, furniture may have been lit ablaze and thrown, I’ve informed Jason he’s wrong (about this and the slightly flared, acid-wash jeans he continues to don on a daily basis) and Rob Parker and Tom Hesser have offered their own opinions while linking me to old Guns and Roses videos off YouTube to help settle the argument.



Still, we need your feedback: has the iOS 5.1 update helped your battery life or hindered it? That’s the question of the day and we need your feedback, opinions and whatever else is on your mind regarding the update.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled O’Grady’s PowerPage, already in progress.

Announcement: iPad 3 launch coverage tomorrow/the sixth circle of Comcast hell

Over at the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco, the iPad 3 shall be launched.

Whether or not it will paint your living room while you play frisbee with your labrador retriever in the back yard has yet to be determined.

But, rest assured, we’ll be delivering every available speck of coverage that we can on the new iPad and anything else that may be released tomorrow.

In other news, I’ve briefly visited one of the more interesting circles of hell. Following a recent move to the Bay area and the discovery of a nifty place to live, I was tasked with installing an Xfinity cable modem kit. Where this should have been relatively simple, it took Comcast a total of 75 minutes to diagnose that the cable connections in the house have yet to be turned on or activated in any way…

Kind of amazing if you think about it.

In other news, take a few minutes and check out Xander Kent’s and Jackson McBrayer’s killer 6th Circle webcomic for all things that are wrong, demented, twisted and just plain funny as hell.

Ladies and gentlemen, President’s Day is upon us and the staff of O’Grady’s PowerPage will be taking the day off to spend with friends, family and assorted Apple mobile devices.

We advise you to do the same.

And if you can find a good sale in the process, more power to you.

Swing back tomorrow for more Apple mobile news and events and remember, it’s a good thing that Lincoln fought the vampires:
