Jason D. O'Grady

Jason D. O'Grady developed an affinity for Apple computers after using the original Lisa, and this affinity turned into a bona-fide obsession when he got the original 128 KB Macintosh in 1984. He started writing one of the first Web sites about Apple (O'Grady's PowerPage) in 1995 and is considered to be one of the fathers of blogging. He has been a frequent speaker at the Macworld Expo conference and a member of the conference faculty. He also co-founded the first dedicated PowerBook User Group (PPUG) in the United States. After winning a major legal battle with Apple in 2006, he set the precedent that independent journalists are entitled to the same protections under the First Amendment as members of the mainstream media. O'Grady is the author of The Nexus One Pocket Guide, The Droid Pocket Guide, The Google Phone Pocket Guide, and The Garmin nuvi Pocket Guide (Peachpit Press), the author of Corporations That Changed the World: Apple Inc. (Greenwood Press), and a contributor to The Mac Bible (Peachpit Press). In addition, he has contributed to numerous Mac publications over the years, including MacWEEK, Macworld, and MacPower (Japan).When he's not writing about Apple for ZDNet at The Apple Core, he enjoys spending time with his family in New Jersey.

It's all about the connectors

If you're considering the purchase of one of the new generation of iPods (i.e. nano or 5G video iPod) it's important to think about accessories. If you're upgrading from a previous model, you should take a careful inventory of your iPod doodads and accessories and make sure that they'll work with your new iron.

Mac mini needs a Front Row

After watching Tuesday's festivities one of the coolest things I took away from the Steve's presentation was Apple's innovative Front Row remote control which turns any Mac into a media center—as long as it's a new iMac, that is.

Apple drops FireWire from video iPod

Apple drops FireWire from video iPod

I am simply shocked and amazed that Apple has abandoned FireWire on the just-announced fifth generation iPods with video. I understand why there's no FireWire on the iPod shuffle (no port) and even why it's off the nano (tiny form-factor, lower cost) but why in blazes did Apple leave FireWire off the new video iPod?

PowerPage: The migration blues

PowerPage: The migration blues

I've been getting a ton of email to ask about the deal with my Web site: O'Grady's PowerPage. First, let me dispel some rumors. The PowerPage wasn't shut down by Apple legal, a Denial-Of-Service (DOS) attack or unpaid domain or hosting bills. And we certainly weren't acquired by a large media company (my favorite). The PowerPage is simply suffering from a case of the migration blues.
