About Sandy

Sandy has been writing about tech stuff in plain language since 1994.
He knows why your computer does that weird thing, and how to stop it.

Sandy is passionate about his faith, his family, strong coffee, apple pie, potatoes (all kinds), and that cool thing Apple announced recently.



No wireless. Less space than Nomad. Lame.

Ten years ago, when Apple introduced the iPod, some people were unimpressed.

Creative’s Nomad player had more storage space, but the iPod could transfer 1,000 songs in less than 10 minutes—30 times faster than any competitor. It was a joy to use, not a chore.

The launch of the iPod was a big bet for a computer company. It seems to have turned out okay for them.
