Apple are starting to confuse me now. The new iPhone is out, actually there are two new ones. The iPhone 8 replaces the iPhone 7. They’ve also released the iPhone 10 (X). They’ve skipped 9 completely. Each new Apple phone has more features than the last but they’re also taking things away. The iPhone 7, […]

As well as that, a health scare for the Queen makes front page news, Badger shares an amazing coincidence […]


Waste of Time.

02Feb15

Apple would get laughed at if they announced that their next device is going to be a camera. Digital camera sales keep falling. We don’t need any more cameras, we’ve already got them on all of our other Apple devices. Which brings me to the Apple Watch. I don’t know how to break this to […]


Sometimes present self is too optimistic about future self’s abilities. Last night I made the mistake of downloading the new OS onto my iPhone, it took AGES! I was already in bed, excitement had got the better of me when I saw the message that said new software was available. I go to bed really […]


I’ve never got on with Windows computers. If it isn’t the “blue screen of death”, it’s the frozen screen and the “control/alt/delete” (which only fixes it half the time anyway). If I’m not turning it off and back on again, I’m being threatened that “your computer may be a risk”. I don’t even have to […]


Jobs Swap

01Jul14

You’d think a brand new computer bought direct from the manufacturer would be good for at least a couple of years. I got a new desktop computer delivered for my birthday, June 10th. Before June was over, it packed up and they had to replace it. This wasn’t a cheap computer, it was an Apple. […]


Flight Risk

20Jun14

“You had ONE JOB!” Is what Julie said to me when she came home from work and I told her what I’d done. Twenty-four hours before our flight to New York, I was the one who had to check us in online. Julie was working at the time the online check-in opened, so it meant […]


When you’ve just spent twenty five hours squashed into an economy class seat and a few more hours in airports changing planes between Sydney and New York via Auckland, Honolulu and Los Angeles, the thing you look forward to the most is a nice hotel room and a comfortable bed. Unfortunately, that’s not what we […]


Crab Apple

“Do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it, the way you said you would do it”. That is the number one rule for life and business according to Larry Winget, who describes himself as, ‘The pitbull of personal development’. Larry is right because whenever an individual or organisation doesn’t […]


Historically wars have been ended through a combination of tech and talk. From radar to the atom bomb, technology has always helped to end wars but they don’t end till there’s been talks. Tech and talk has also stopped wars from starting in the first place. Somehow, the tech and talk answer has been missed by […]


Why do people say they want to “go with the flow”? Nothing worth having comes easy or accidentally. Positive changes can only be made by going where the flow doesn’t go. I agree with what Ricky Gervais had to say on the subject a few years ago. He said, “I don’t know what happiness is […]


Interdependent

12Mar14

This morning, the alarm on my iPhone woke me up. I got up and watched Sky News on the phone while I shaved. While eating breakfast I opened up my Chromebook, checked my email and posted a link to my blog on Twitter. I drove to work listening to the Adam Carolla Show Podcast. I […]


Dirty Windows

13Jan14

I’ve had enough of Windows computers. Every time I buy a new one, it comes with a different operating system that doesn’t work properly with the programs I ran on the computer it replaced. There’s a constant threat of viruses, spyware & malware. The terror of being wiped out by a virus is used to make […]


The toast has popped up but there’s nothing to put it on to butter it this morning. The breadboard has been packed. We’re not moving house for another three days but Julie likes to get ahead of the game. Right now she’s making another run to the tip, her second of the day and all […]


Radio Control

14Jun13

iTunes Radio is coming. I wonder if Siri is doing the phone-in show. Don’t expect any strong opinions or debate from Siri. If someone calls up and says “All politicians are crooks”, Siri is just going to say, “I don’t understand ‘All politicians are crooks’. But I could search the web for it.” My point […]
