iPhone anticipation

This is a familiar tale. A very familiar tale to anyone who knows me or has been reading this blog for more than a year. A new iPhone was due to be launched (two, in fact!) and as a result (no free will here, folks!) I expended a serious amount of concentration staying up into ...

Take Note

I’ve been living with my new Samsung Note 3 for a couple of months now and can honestly say I’m still glad I made the switch. Every time I pick up @FrankDJS s iPhone 5s (which is, actually, my old one) I’m amazed I lasted as long as I did with such a small screen. Yes, the Note 3 is ...

So I switched to Android

Brace yourself. I somehow underestimated the impact the following news would have on people who know me well. I was virtually interrogated by work colleagues who couldn’t believe that I…have finally switched from iOS to Android. Take a deep breath. Have a seat. I know I’ve had more time to adjust to this technological earthquake than ...

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 an app store and one of the biggest names to announce an ...

Great Mobile Phone News

I managed to see the first few minutes of Samsung's new flagship phone launch on Monday evening and was delighted to find I have absolutely no interest in the Samsung S5. While this is not good news for Samsung (though I’m sure they can survive without me), it’s good news for me. Recently, I’ve been getting ...

Considering a bigger iPhone

It’s mid-January, so obviously rumours of the next iPhone model have started. Actually, I read iPhone 6 rumours the day after the iPhone 5s was announced. I suspect some people spend their entire technology writing careers creating and propagating crazy Apple rumours. Implausible rumours aside, the trend for bigger mobile phone screens continues, while Apple has retained ...

Going crazy for golden phones…

Despite what everyone said when they were announced, it seems like Apple's gold iPhone 5S models are flying off the shelves. According to Cult of Mac, gold phones are going for stupid amounts of money on eBay already. The gold iPhone 5s is in very short supply. Apple has already sold out, and is unlikely ...

No surprises whatsoever…

Despite hoping beyond hope, I wasn't surprised by anything Apple announced earlier this week. I inevitably missed the keynote, being on a plane at the time, but catching up was quick and easy. Two iPhone models? Check. Gaudy, tacky gold-coloured iPhoneS? Check. Date for release of iOS7? Check. It was interesting, but nothing to set ...

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. All iPhone rumours indicate that we'll see a slight update ...
