Alexa? Welcome home.

I bought an Amazon Echo Dot last weekend, with the various Amazon vouchers I got from my family for Christmas. I'd been thinking about getting the 'full' Echo model - you know, the one that looks like the monolith from 2001? I opted for the Dot after some intensive online research (a good 15 minutes ...

iOS 10: Lots to learn

After a less than satisfactory upgrade to iOS 10 earlier this week, I've been learning about its bits and bobs through day to day usage. What follows is a far-from-detailed review of the update, which is no way been approaches the thoroughness of some of the excellent reviews (e.g. iMore, MacStories). So, in no particular ...

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 ...

A mini return

Since I got my iPad Pro 9.7", my iPad Mini3 has been relatively unused. As in, completely unused.

A sure sign that I ...

And, as any reader of this blog knows, I love me some ToDoist action. Lately, I realised ...

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 ...

iPadding around…

I got myself a 128GB iPad Air 2 with sim last weekend and (Vodafone nonsense aside... that deserves a whole post of its own) took it on a week-long business trip. Paired with a Logitech magnetic clip-on keyboard, it was an excellent laptop replacement. When standing up running workshops, it was my reference notebook, using ...

Considering the new Macbook

Thanks to the appearance of summer in London for several hours in a row, I spent a good part of yesterday afternoon in the park and then in the garden, catching up on various podcasts and soaking up sunshine. I particularly enjoyed Connected #35, where David Sparks made a guest appearance and shared his views ...

Apple Watch: now I’m really impressed

Two things that have blown me away in the past week: You can not only check your email via the Apple Watch, but also process your inbox by deleting unwanted crap right from the watch interface. Those spare five minutes here and there can really help you prune your inbox and separate the important from ...
