iPhone 6S Plus: a quick review

  My iPhone 6 S Plus arrived on Friday afternoon, while I was at work. I might be getting old, but once I got the text confirming it had been delivered, I managed to somehow put it out of my head and continue working until it was time to get home. I think had a ...

How time flies

Adding some notes to Evernote on my iPhone 6 Plus a moment ago, I paused to think about what a great phone it is and how over the moon I was when it arrived last year. And yet... In just a few hours, Apple will have announced a replacement and the iPhone 6 will feel ...

Exasperated Apple Pay face

Well, it finally happened. After yesterday's enthusiasm about using my Apple Watch to pay for stuff (i.e. cake), I went to use Passbook on my watch this morning to buy breakfast at Starbucks. I was all set: Passbook app and correct card on screen. I leant forward towards the scanner and...nothing happened. Cue passive-aggressive sigh ...

Considering the latest Apple rumours…

Apple are holding their now-traditional September iPhone event next week and I'm mildly surprised at my lack of bowel-trembling excitement. Could it be that my iPhone 6 plus is the ultimate iPhone for me and, regardless of rumours, I'm not interested in upgrading? Maybe. I really like the iPhone 6 Plus. It's basically everything that I've ...

The Apple Watch continues to be useful

Okay, so this isn't strictly something that will cause you to run to the Apple Store with money in your hands, screaming "just give me the Apple Watch!", but... it's another example of how I find the Apple Watch to be very convenient and helpful. Not life-changing. It's a watch, after all. I travel around ...

Review: Knomad Mini Portable Organiser

2014: My Year in Review

So, the end of another year. While I'm not a huge fan of celebrating New Year's Eve - people do tend to go over the top in making rash life-changing promises, while others get quite maudlin - I do find it useful to look back over the year and reflect on what I've really enjoyed ...

Hey Siri: shut up

The update to iOS 8 brought the ability to activate Siri simply by saying "Hey Siri", so you can ask Siri to do things while your hands are otherwise occupied. Everyone illustrates this by talking about "while baking in the kitchen". They don't really know me at all... I switched this on, despite having no ...

The Pebble cometh

I've finally gone for it and ordered a Pebble smart-watch. I got a very generous Amazon gift card (among other lovely goodies) from my colleagues when I left my job a couple of weeks ago and it's been burning a virtual hole in my virtual pocket ever since. The Pebble was on my "someday / ...
