Another year older

So it’s my birthday today. (That fact, and the various other trinkets of information I’ve dropped over this blog in the last few years, should be enough for someone on the other side of the planet to finally steal my identity completely). I have nothing of any significance to say today, except that I’m happy. ...

A smaller iPad on the way?

Some say “yes”, others vehemently shout “never”! After El Jobs lambasted the very idea of a 7″ tablet on a call a few months back, the concept of an iPad-mini or anything like that has been the stuff of dreams. Recently though, the rumour mill has started to turn again, sending forth whispers of a ...

Two weeks with Omnifocus

After continued frustration with the lack of joined-up syncing in Things, I decided to take the plunge and buy OmniFocus from The OmniGroup. (If the preceding sentence means nothing to you, it’s probably best you skip this blog post and look at something cute instead). If you’re still with me, you’ll know that both Things and OmniFocus are basically “to-do” list managers ...

Nearly there…

Londoners’ obsession with the Tube used to intrigue and annoy me in equal measure. Now I’m as obsessed as the rest of the people in this city… If you’re a user of London Overground (of which the old East London Line is now a part), this may be of interest to you. Londonist have some great pics of the ...

Kicked the habit

I told you so. I told you I could stop anytime I wanted. And I have. I haven’t watched a single episode of Corrie since that fateful tram-disaster-week-of-epidsodes which so captivated me a few weeks ago. Nope. Not a single one. I’m clean. However, this leaves me in the awful predicament of not knowing whether Rita survived her ...

Something’s coming

Finally. A blog post by the chaps over at Cultured Code regarding a cloud-based sync solution for their excellent Things application. For those of you ignoring my various posts on the topic over the last century and a half, Things is a powerful To-Do list manager for the Mac, iPhone and iPad. It allows you to apply the ‘Getting things Done’ ...

Arctic London

No, not really. But we did experience a few inches of snow yesterday. Thus, the city resembled the End of Days, airports went into meltdown and trains sank into the very pit of hell itself. Or something like that. I had plan to write several thousand (much needed) words of my doctoral dissertation. But, like ...

My new addiction

Surprise surprise – it’s not a gadget or anything vaguely technical. I have to admit, I’m pretty ashamed of it… I’ve been watching Coronation Street all this week. I haven’t watched it regularly since… ever. I’ver never been a fan. And I don’t think I’m a fan now, more of rubber-necked gawker watching disaster unfold. The show’s ...

iOS4.2 on the iPad

So Apple finally shared the iOS upgrade love with their bazillion (roughly) iDevice customers. While iPhone peeps got some minor upgrades in there, it was iPad aficionados who experienced the biggest changes to their devices. I downloaded and installed the update, but it didn’t go as smoothly as advertised. In fact, it was so far from smooth, ...
