The new AirPods perfectly encapsulate the magical experience that only Apple is capable of creating. Open the case in which they are stored1 — a pop-up appears on your iPhone, asking if you’d like to pair them. Do it again, anytime … Continue reading
The AirPods are now available for purchase from Apple. I was set to order a pair — their functionality is almost perfect for what I want to use them for — but then I read the fine print.
Today is the seventh day that I have spent with my MacBook Pro. I set it up as new and have been unable to get more than 6 hours of battery life when using it lightly (Safari, Tweetbot, and Ulysses). When using … Continue reading
I had a strange dream last night, and the new 13″ MacBook Pro was the main actor…
This question seems to of concern to a lot of people each year. The same question was asked when the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus debuted, and again a year later, during the 6S and 6S Plus launch. This year things are … Continue reading
As soon as I saw the new iPhone 7 promotional wallpapers, I knew I’d seen those colours somewhere before. I love that they did this.
P.S. I compiled the image above myself a few days after the keynote.
I bought my first Kindle in 2011. It was the model with side mounted buttons to flip pages, a non-lit screen, and I loved it1. Not because it was a good device, but because it allowed me to carry so … Continue reading
I haven’t been posting much lately for a number of reasons, but the major one is that I now have a drone in my life, which means I’ve been spending a lot of time learning the ropes. And there are … Continue reading
I ordered my Woven Nylon band soon after Apple’s March keynote. I spent a long time trying to decide which colour I should get, especially since I was just going to get one. Since I already have black, orange, and red Sport … Continue reading
A lot of people are not pleased with the fact that Apple ‘only’ unveiled a new 4” iPhone, another iPad, and a few Apple Watch bands. Personally, I don’t have anything negative to say about the hardware, but what I … Continue reading
It’s taken me 120 days to put my iPad Air 2 up for sale, which I used maybe two or three times since I acquired my iPad Pro — the former will find its way to a new family soon, … Continue reading
I was a Nikon D700 user until recently, having made the switch from Canon in 2009. There were multiple reasons for this. At the time, the D700 was a much better full frame camera than the 5D. The former was basically a smaller pro … Continue reading
I’ve wanted to write about so many things during these past few weeks, but I never could find the time to get into them. One of those on hold have been my thoughts and first impressions of the Surface Pro … Continue reading
I just picked up my iPad Pro Smart Keyboard from TNT and since I need to write something to test it out, I chose to speculate a little. You see, while the Smart Keyboard was available in the EU, the Polish … Continue reading
Since getting my iPad Pro a few weeks ago, I’ve been writing on it a lot, using mostly the software keyboard, but also helping myself out with an external one. I bought an Origami Workstation a few years ago, and … Continue reading
Apple also released a new SD Card Camera Reader today, in addition to the new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6S. The new model is virtually indistinguishable from the old one, so take care when purchasing — the updated model … Continue reading
Apple quietly introduced a new accessory today — a Mophie-style battery case for the iPhone 6s — which they called the ‘iPhone 6S Smart Battery Case‘. From what I can see on my Twitter feed, it’s already under fire for … Continue reading
I’ve had my iPad Pro for 16 day now. While most of it is what I expected, there is one area where it’s been significantly lacking, frustrating me to no end.
I spent the last two days playing around with my Apple Pencil, which I acquired due to pure dumb luck. I then bought Notability for iOS [App Store] and actually wrote something. On the iPad Pro, with the Apple Pencil. … Continue reading
I wasn’t supposed to get an iPad Pro. When it came out I convinced myself that it was going to be too big and too cumbersome to use on a daily basis. I already have a “big Mac”, a Retina … Continue reading
It’s been close to sixty days living with my Apple Watch. Almost two months where I haven’t thought of returning to my beloved mechanical Omega. All of this for three simple reasons. When Apple first showed the Watch I felt as if … Continue reading
I’ve been using my Harry’s Shaving Set since October last year and I love it. It allowed me to get rid of all of my Gillette paraphernalia and besides saving a lot of money, I simply love the look of the handle—yes, I went … Continue reading
My Apple Watch arrived late. It was in fact early compared to the estimated shipping date, but having to wait an extra week was extremely off-putting. Patience is not one of my virtues. My friends got their Sports on launch … Continue reading
Apple introduced Retina screens in the MacBook Pro a few years ago and I never took the plunge. I had no need for a 13” laptop at the time and bought a 11” MacBook Air1 a year later. What convinced … Continue reading
Retina screens have been a part of my life since the iPhone 4 and iPad 3. Apple achieved something incredible by quadrupling the pixel count—it removed a barrier between the content and its reader. I still remember how I considered the first iPad and … Continue reading
I’ve had a number of different Macs over the years, none of which have been able to fulfil my needs. Some have come close, while others are about as far as possible from my needs. A new one is on … Continue reading
