IOS 7, OSX Mavericks and the new Mac Pro

I’ve just got through watching the Apple WWDC keynote and I have to say I’m quite impressed. I wasn’t really expecting much as you can’t really force a company to innovate, but from what I’ve seen I’m quite looking forward to the second half of the year as some of the new updates look really...

Mobile Mayhem

As you probably know I’m quite a gadget hound and and Apple fanboy. I have gadgets all over the place, not just computers, iPads and iPods, but GPS devices, Sat Navs and numerous training devices. In fact my triathlon training would barely be possible without electronic gadgets as I use my Garmin Forerunner 910XT on every...

Mountain Lion at Last

Amazon.co.uk Widgets I’ve finally caught up with the rest of the Mac World by upgrading my iMac to run the latest Apple operating system Mountain Lion (OX 10.8). I had several reasons for waiting so long to do so. First was the fact that Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) was running perfectly well on my machine....

iOS5 Review

I’ve just written a post containing a long term review of the iPad now that we’ve lived with it for almost a year, so I thought I’d also write some thoughts on the recent upgrade to iOS5. iOS5 has some fundamental changes over the previous operating system and it did promise to address some of the...

iPad 2 – Any reason to upgrade?

Well, the iPad 2 has been officially launched and will be out in the UK later in March. We’ve had an iPad since Christmas now and use it every day. The whole family uses it and we love it. I’ve already written an iPad review so won’t go into what we use it for here...

I Love Pages

I’ve been busy creating books recently. As I mentioned earlier I thought it would be a really nice thing to make books from each year of this weblog as a memento and photo album for us. At first it was going to be a quick copy of the weblog but once I got into it...
