My top posts of 2016

It's been a busy year on the blogging front. I reached by 1,000th post and built a better habit of regular posts. Some of which were surprisingly popular with those of you with enough time on your hands to come visit. I had a quick look at my stats and the following posts are (in ...

Apple Watch series 2.0 has arrived!

While I won't be getting my new iPhone 7 Plus for a few days yet (le sigh), my new Apple Watch arrived this morning. What's more, I somehow had the self-control to leave it in its box until I'd finished all my must-dos today. It's gorgeous, but hard to differentiate from the series 1.0 watch ...

An iOS 10 headache

Now, you can tell me I only have myself to blame, but I tried to update my iOS devices as soon as the iOS 10 update became available from Apple yesterday evening. My iPad Pro 9.7" updated smoothly and easily. I haven't gone through all the details, but with a couple of hours' use, I ...

iPhone 7 – taking the plunge?

I missed yesterday's Apple Event as it was streamed, but followed it via the liveblog from the Verge and sporadic tweets, all the time on a slow-moving train from Nottingham to London. There weren't too may surprises (Mario aside) and the phone and watch announcements were as expected. Yes to new black colours, yes to ...

Here come the shiny new Apple gadgets!

By this time tomorrow, I'll have gorged myself on all the juicy details from Apple's event, pored over the blog posts, zoomed in on all the photos and decided if any of it is of interest to me. I mean, I'll be interested in it all, but I won't be buying it all. My iPhone ...

Torn between iOS and Android? Kind of.

The experiment isn't over! Some of you may remember I got myself all Androided-up a few months back. I bought a Nexus 6P and fell in love with it and its OS, Android. I kept my iPhone and Apple Watch in a drawer and lived a Google-focused existence. Since then, I've moved between the two ...

Back in the OmniFocus club

It's been a while now, but I've finally moved on from ToDoist and gone back to using OmniFocus. Well, I say 'gone back', but the app has evolved so much since I last used it, it's almost unrecognisable. My move from ToDoist isn't a slight against that app - I still stand by everything I've ...

Back in the saddle again…

It’s official The experiment is over. I’ve officially handed in my Android club membership card and come crawling back to Apple like the boyfriend who has come to his senses after a crazy fling. Kind of. A quick update: After getting about three hours sleep on Thursday night/Friday morning, I was less than my bright, Wildean self ...

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* ...
