Pretty much painless

Breaking news from Geektown: I’ve just set up my new MacBook Air from scratch in about 20 mins. That doesn’t sound impressive, but bear in mind I didn’t transfer any data over from my old MacBook Air or a backup on an external drive.

New iPad? Yes please!

So yesterday's iPad announcements from Apple were delicious, right? Very pleased to see a retina iPad Mini, now with 128GB storage. I'll be getting one of those as soon as they hit the shelves.

I'm particularly excited about the prospect of ...

Predictions for Macworld

I can't believe it's come around again... it seems like only yesterday I was wading knee-deep through outlandish claims and rumours regarding what new products Apple would announce at Macworld. Hands up: I'm a Mac geek. A "fanboi", if you will. I've been using Macs for over 10 years now (so not a recent convert) ...
