Done and done. New iPhone ordered.

Despite my worries, this morning's launch of the new iPhones wasn't too much of a stressful experience. Not what I was saying to myself at 0759 this morning, though... I'd already made up my mind on the model, colour and capacity of the phone I was after, (iPhone XS Max, 256GB, Space Grey), so my ...

The new iPhones: it’s gotta be Max!

I'm all in on Apple's new big-screen iPhone Xs Max. Despite the terrible, terrible name...

Today’s Apple Event: who am I kidding?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past month, you'll know that Apple are going to announce their latest phones today. I'll save us all a lot of time and energy by confirming I'll be buying one of them. In previous years, I've wasted time protesting that I don't need an upgrade and ...

New iMac goodness

When I moved into my new office last June, I treated myself to a new iMac. Working long hours off a 12-inch MacBook wasn't going to be good for me! However, with an eye on budget, I scrimped and went for the base level model. And it wasn't long before I felt it. A lot. ...

A plethora of note-taking apps

Despite my love of writing things down in lovely notebooks, I'm also a fan of electronic notes. This is due to a combination of fear that I'll lose important things written on paper and a (perceived) need to have access to anything I've ever written at any time or in any location. Judge me. But keeping ...

One week in with the iPhone X

I finally got my hands on the new iPhone X last Sunday and I have to admit, it's rarely left my hands since then. This - finally - is the iPhone I've wished Apple would make. Yes, there's been a ton of anticipation and hype about this phone, but for me it has lived up ...

Unboxing the iPhone X

I promise I'll write up a full review of my experiences with the iPhone X once I've used it for a few days, but first, here are some snaps I took last night. My very, very preliminary observations are: It feels great in the hand. Very high quality, very solid. Face ID seems to work ...

So near, yet so far: iPhone X lust

@TheFrankFlyer managed to snag us a couple of iPhone X handsets on launch day, while I was working in Barcelona. I tried my best to do the purchasing, hunched over my iPad and iPhone in my client's office, but I couldn't event get into the Apple Store before he'd bought them for us. So yay! ...

Missing my Apple Watch… 

In a sleep-deprived flurry of OMG this morning, I somehow left home without my Apple Watch. I know, right? Talk about a First World Problem. Actually, someone did: https://twitter.com/KatieDa81729922/status/825990887775797248 Anyway, as I waited for my DLR into town, I realised it was too late to go home to get it and hopped on the train ...
