Travelling in Ireland VPN and RAW Photos

So far I have only needed to add megabytes to the mobile phone data once. I couldn’t get on the Airport wifi and I needed to send a message and do some other bits and pieces. Don’t forget to use a VPN product when you are on unsecured networks like at the airports. I have Hotspot Shield VPN. Good job I sent the message because my son arrived at the Read More …

The Travelling Man with Good and Geeky Tech

So there I was camping in the French Pyrenees having a good time. The only fly in the ointment was the almost non-availability of Internet. I was paying €3.63 per 100 MB per day and I also had access to some really slow Wi-Fi at the reception of the campsite. The best use I could make of the camping site Internet was to allow the iPhone to download a couple Read More …

Desperately Disappointing Apple event

I was sat on my sofa with a cup of tea in my hand and a piece of cake, looking forward to the Apple event for autumn 2016. I never believe any of the rumours flying around in the months prior to one of these events. It’s preferable to wait until the actual announcement is made by Apple themselves. Even so, it was highly likely that a new thin strip Read More …

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. One of my favourite iPad and iPhone art applications has been iColorama. I find it’s quite easy to get into a situation where you enjoy using a particular application so much you forget to try some of the others. Especially with an application Read More …

There are bound to be one of two things that don’t get checked when the company is sending out the beta versions of the new operating system.

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. It does take a couple of days to adjust to having the freedom and being able to get Read More …

Aurora HDR 2017 Photography Application

A colourful way of seeing the world I’ve always liked HDR photos because of the heightened and out of this world style of the colours and ultra-real view it gives me. It reminds me of when I was younger and I got my first pair of Polaroid sunglasses. When I put the glasses on, all the colours seem to be stronger and brighter. The blue of the sky was better Read 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 …
