The iPhone XS Max: a brief review

I've had my new iPhone XS Max for just over a month and so I thought it would be timely to share my experiences to date. If you don't want to read the remainder of this post, rest assured I'm a massive fan of this particular phone and believe it's easily the best product Apple ...

The iPhone XS Max: some first impressions

I've had my new iPhone XS Max (stupid name) less than a week, but I'm loving it. Definitely the best phone I've ever had.

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 ...

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 ...

Dipping my toe in the podcasting pond again…

Hopefully nobody out there recalls my pretty disastrous attempt at creating a podcast. It turned into a real chore, due to all the work involved. And finding the time to record in a quiet environment was just proving impossible. And so, like many many podcasts before it, my podcast withered on the vine. But I'm ...

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! ...

My favourite travel apps

It's indisputable that technology has changed the face of travel over the last decade. We can now book flights from our iPads, check-in with our smartphones and bring our entire music collections with us wherever we go. I make no secret of using technology a lot when I travel. I'm not sure I could survive ...
