Inevitable iPhone 6s Plus flip-flop

Pre-orders for the new iPhones went live at 8am London time this morning. I happened to be awake and was listening to a podcast and wandering through the bottomless pit of snark that is Twitter when I saw a couple of tweets mentioning the Apple Store. I suddenly remember that iPhone pre-orders were live this ...

Apple event comedown…

Every time Apple has an event, I'm glad products aren't ready for immediate release. Otherwise, there'd be a lot more impulse buying and a lot more remorse in this household. Yesterday's (epically long) event was prime example. Just under twelve hours ago, I was so keen to part with my hard-earned money to buy everything ...

Game of Thrones come-down…

I finally caught up with Game of Thrones season five on my flights to and from Singapore last week. It's always a gamble watching GoT on a plane, as you never know when someone is going to be murdered grusomely or when there is going to be an explosion of fairly gratuitous nudity. But safely ...

Still doing with ToDoist

This post, from over a year ago, has turned out to be one of the most popular on my blog. In it, I describe how in my move from iOS to Android, I was looking for a replacement for OmniFocus. After evaluating some options on the Google Play store, I opted for ToDoist. Well, a ...

Everything is awesome

Well, not quite. But seriously, when it comes to technology, I’m getting to the stage where it’s starting to amaze me. Maybe it’s a sign I’m getting old, or maybe it’s a sign that technological advances are speeding up and getting more useful. Either way, more things are ‘just working’ and when I stop to ...

Considering WWDC

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) begins next week and, as usual, the rumour mill as achieved maximum output. This is partly fuelled by Apple itself - they’ve been dropping heavy hints about ‘new product categories’ for some time now. A new product category wouldn’t accurately translate into a new iPhone or iPad model. Sounds like something *completely* ...

My Apple Life

  It’s the 30th anniversary of the Mac and, on reflection, I’ve been an Apple user for many of this years. Starting in primary school, we had some introductory computer classes using what would have been Macintosh LC models. I was amazed at the colour screen - comparing all computers to the massive clunky objects I encountered ...

Thinking anti-social thoughts…

In my quest to have a play with the new iPads - to try before I buy - I made the truly stupid mistake of visiting Westfield Stratford after midday on a Saturday. It. Was. Hell. On. Wheels. I'm not a massive fan of crowds anyway, but something about the slow-moving sheep-like crowds at Westfield ...

I’m A5-ing it once again

After a previous post bemoaning the size of my A5 Original Filofax (I do have a life, honest), my new iPad insert for same has given it a new lease of life. Combining very practical A5-size paper for notes, scribbles and brainstorms, along with my iPad Mini for checking agenda, accessing Evernote and Omnifocus, this ...
