All Together Now – Mac20Q – NoStylus – Spondicious – Good and Geeky

It’s All Good and Geeky For about six or seven years now I’ve been writing on the Mac 20 Questions blog – Mac20Q. I’ve decided it’s better if I bring it into Good and Geeky. Same thing with the NoStylus website and also with my Spondicious website. The Spondicious site has been about my photography interest. Mac20Q has obviously been all about using the Mac, while NoStylus was all about Read More …

Discovering great iPad art applications for creativity

Let’s take a look at Enlight. I am constantly amazed by the quality of the iPad art applications we have available for making innovative, fantastic digital art.

Back in the land of the living – As far as writing is concerned

During the summertime when I only have one day off per week. I really don’t get a lot of writing done. You can just imagine how happy I get on the 1st of October when I’m suddenly free and able to get into the swing of putting words onto pages once more.

Third Party Keyboards in the Middle of the Night

Bit of a headache so I was finding it difficult to sleep. Got up to take a pill 💊 and have a look at my computer. Loving the Swiping Swype way of writing. It’s a great way to type quickly on the virtual keyboards. You don’t have to be that accurate with finding the keys as you Swype. The software behind it makes good guesses at what you wanted. Sometimes Read More …

Writing with the DragonDictate application V6.0.1

This is with an update to the crappy first version came out with version 6. It’s still not showing the commands window and I’m a bit surprised because it’s supposed to have been fixed. It’s the same as before when I click on the show commands in the status window (That’s the right-hand of the three icons), nothing happens at all. The dictation seems to work quite nicely and the Read More …

Got The iPhone 7 and iOS 10 – Loving it!

Collecting from Barcelona I thought I’d have a trip to Barcelona to collect the iPhone 7 although I normally have the new things from Apple sent to my house. The reason I did it this way is because it’s likely the couriers would not get the iPhone to me on the proper day. They always seem to have trouble finding our house. Also with me being at work there was Read More …

Managing Photos in Photos App

This morning I spent time with the application Photos and I was really quite impressed with the way I could have it find faces for me. The more faces you confirm as a named person the better it gets finding them. Because of this you need to go back to it a couple of times and allow it to look for more photos within your photo albums. It is funny Read More …
