    When I took my son to the airport on Tuesday night for his adventure back east, he asked for my phone to program in a number I needed.  I went to the restroom, returned and got my phone, and saw my son off.  I cried the entire way home.  I miss him like crazy and am counting down...

    Nowhere in the Torah does it say: “And on the seventh day, God played soccer.” Which is too bad for observant Jewish youths who would love to take advantage of the many local sports leagues that play on Saturdays.

    Fortunately, there are Dr. Matthew Lefferman and Eric Weissman....

  • New Apple operating system lists Israel without a capital, Jerusalem without a country

    September 25, 2012 | 11:13 am

    The map included in Apple’s new iOS6 operating system reportedly does not show Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    Every other country on the map has its capital listed, The Algemeiner reported Tuesday.

    In addition, the world clock included in the operating system lists Jerusalem without an affiliated country -- the only city to be included that way, the paper said.

    Apple did not respond to JTA requests for comment.

    Last week my iPhone 4S started to act up.  I’ve only had it for a few weeks so I was unclear what the problem was so I made an appointment at the Genius Bar of my local Apple store.  I went in and met with a genius.  By genius of course I mean he appeared to about 12 and does not...

    Mr. Jobs passed away at the young age of 56.  He was a visionary who changed the world in a profound way.  Though not that savvy when it comes to technology, I know about the things he created, and how they changed the world.  While I cannot share details of the global impact of his...

    The Macintosh was no exception. MUGs, or Macintosh user groups, provided new users with an...

  • Thank you, God, for not smiting my Mac

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    July 29, 2008 | 4:07 pm

    I was going to avoid blogging about the magnitude-5.8 earthquake we just had about 40 miles east of my place—that’s what twitter is for. But after a conversation with a few friends, I can’t resist. See, they were worried about their loved ones—spouses, kids, the like. My wife is fine, thank you, but my first concern as I tried to figure out whether I should leave the coffee shop was not her safety or my own but that of my computer.
