Day 12 – Working with a full Apple system

I’ve got the iMac Back I did take a trip to Barcelona in the afternoon yesterday to go and collect the iMac from the Apple Store and I’m back to a full Apple system. This morning I have to admit that it is nice to have two large 27 inch screens in front of me on my desk in my office. There’s just something about having it all large and Read More …

Day 11 – iOS Champion

How much longer can I be an iOS Champion There is a possibility that today I will go and collect my iMac from the store. During the last week and a half I have used iOS almost exclusively. That makes me an iOS champion! I say almost exclusive because I did switch on and have a look at my Raspberry Pi briefly. Maybe that doesn’t count because it was only Read More …

iOS OCR apps

Collecting photos into Day One As part of my daily journaling practice I like to collect photos from Messages I have received from the family during the day. For example, today I got a photo of the new member of the family, the son of Tamsin my niece. He’s going to be called Kenzo.

Happy Birthday My Apple Watch

It was exactly 1 year ago that I picked up my Apple Watch. 366 days, don’t forget it was a leap year and I’ve been using it every day since.

It worked out pretty well because it was arriving just exactly for the weekend when I was there Read More …

Post PC Day 9 – iPad Artist

How to be an iPad Artist I am an iPad artist. The creativity comes through me mostly through writing these days but I still often have the times when all I want to do is create visual art.

Day 8 – An iOS Warrior There are people such as Federico @Vitticci and Frasier Speirs who are true iOS / iPad Warriors. Federico does all his writing and just about everything else using his iPad.

A trip to the Apple Store – Day 5

I got to the store before it was open and had to wait for 10 minutes before I could get to the Genius Bar. The guy there was very helpful and we agreed on getting the hard drive replaced in the iMac. It wasn’t as expensive as I thought it might be! It’s going to take the week before it will be done. I only get one day off per Read More …

Day 4 post-PC – Joys Of Mobile Computing

The joys of mobile computing – Day 4 post-PC In my previous iPad I had the slots for the Sim card. It was quite handy to have mobile access to the Internet where ever I was. The only problem was the extra cost of a sim per month. With the iPad Pro being quite an expensive purchase I decided not to go with the Sim card system this time. I Read More …
