KBCafe Blog Awards Winner: Best Apple Blog

Well it looks like AppleWatch has won the 2005 KBCafe Blog Award for Best Apple Blog with 29% of the vote. We beat out the Mac Observer and The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Here’s to another year of Apple news and speculation.

Rock the Vote, Vote or Die, Get out the vote

All those slogans can be used for this campaign. AppleWatch was nominated for Best Tech Blog a couple of weeks ago after some confusion in the nominating process.

He certainly deserves it, so he’ll probably appreciate you vote too. I’m just not so sure he’ll offer the hand shake deal too.

InsideGoogle: “Google Mini”, days after Mac mini release

InsideGoogle is reporting that Google is leveraging on the whole “mini” title to release their new server solution: the Google Mini. But the name is apt, it is quite a bit smaller than Googles (is that what you would call it?) of yore. Read all the details at InsideGoogle. Main difference? Google uses a capital ‘M’, while Apple doesn’t. The lawyers will have fun with that technicality.

Technovations’ thoughts are leaning towards Apple

Another member of the Blog News Channel, Technovations has been covering what he thinks of Apple’s latest releases. There can the “gadgeteer’s” thoughts on the iPod shuffle and if you should switch to a mac (you should) because of the new release of the Mac mini.
