Review: Filofax Fusion iPad Air Organiser

The lovely chaps at Filofax sent me a new organiser to test drive. So, after using it for a couple of weeks, I’m sharing my thoughts on it. But in case you don’t make it to the end of the post, my ultimate verdict is: I…

Checking it twice

I travel a lot. A. Lot. Mostly for business, mostly short trips to UK cities and occasionally further afield. Personal trips too, mostly within Europe, but at least once a year something to either North America or (like last year and later this year) Asia…

Doing with Todoist

As I mentioned before  one of my biggest worries about leaving iOS behind was the absence of an Android version of OmniFocus. Having used the app for years, I really came to rely on it for all aspects of my life. Complex, multi-month work projects, shopping lists…

Evernote on your wrist?

Pebble’s announcement of an Evernote app for their smart watch has piqued my interest. I think Pebble is the standout winner (so far) in the battle of the smart watches, due to a combination of usability and battery life. Cost is obviously a factor too. Now they’ve opened…

Trying out Postach.io

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been experimenting more regularly with Postach.io – a fantastic service that let’s you host a blog based on the Evernote app. Simply write your post in evernote, tag it “Published” and it appears on your blog. Simple as….

Pretty much painless

Breaking news from Geektown: I’ve just set up my new MacBook Air from scratch in about 20 mins. That doesn’t sound impressive, but bear in mind I didn’t transfer any data over from my old MacBook Air or a backup on an external drive. This…

Postach.io joins the App Centre

The really very excellent Postach.io has joined the Evernote App Centre. What’s Postach.io, I hear you say? If you use Evernote, it’s an idiot-proof method for turning notes into a perfectly serviceable blog. It’s definitely idiot-proof as I’ve managed it – took about one minute…

Prepping for Japan…

So in just a few short days, this little hobbit will be making his first visit to the amaze-balls Japan. Tokyo, to be precise. I’ve wanted to visit since I was about ten years old, so the opportunity to get over there this year couldn’t…

48 hours with iOS 7

Like most geeks in the UK, I was frustrated by the inability of Apple’s servers to keep up with my downloading needs when iOS 7 was finally made available to us. Frantic attempts to get my hands on it failed miserably until time differences meant…

Hoping for Apple-related surprises

As the world and its dog knows, Apple are going to announce some new products this coming Tuesday. All signs point to at least one new iPhone model – in all probability, two – as well as the confirmed availability of the new iOS 7….
