The New Apple TV, From a British Perspective

Today Apple announced the new Apple TV.  It represents a shift in direction from the existing Apple TV away from ownership and towards renting.  It sounds good in theory, and if I were in the US I’d be excited about being able to rent TV shows for 99 cents.  However, the picture isn’t quite as […]

Three iPad RSS Readers that take completely different approaches

When I bought an iPad, one thing I was really looking forward to doing was reading through my list of subscribed feeds every day. The iPad struck me as the perfect device for doing this. It’s portable, responsive and is just about the best content consumption device I’ve had the joy of owning. And one […]

Looking at O2's New iPhone 4 Tariffs

O2 announced the tariffs for iPhone 4 today to much criticism. Gone are the unlimited data bundles of old, replaced by what could only be described as meagre allowances, reduced voice minutes, additional charges for MMS messages and higher charges. The Plans I thought it would be interesting to compare the current plan I’m on […]

iPad Review

After months of hype and delays Apple finally released the iPad in the uk. For me it was a release filled with trepidation and uncertainty. As a card carrying Apple fanboi, I had to buy one, but it wasn’t something I was lusting after. There were many things about the iPad that excited me, but […]

Why I'm Excited, and Nervous about the iPad

Across the pond people have been getting their hands on Apple’s latest toy, the iPad.  Here in the UK we’re left to vicariously live through others, reading reviews, checking out unboxing videos and sneaking peaks at upcoming apps, like some sort of weird stalker trying to gather intelligence on a future mate. It all feels a little, […]

Two Hidden OSX Preview Gems

When I described Five Hidden OSX Gems a couple of years ago, I highlighted the flexibility of Preview.  Even back in the days of Tiger, it was a hugely useful tool, and I bemoaned having to use operating systems that didn’t have it. Since then, it’s grown significantly in usefulness.  I don’t know when the […]

UK Apple iPad Price – A Statistical Prediction

Whilst Apple have confirmed that the iPad will be coming to the UK at the same time as the US they are yet to announce any pricing.  So where the US is getting charged a very reasonable $499 (starting price), we don’t yet know what us in blighty are going to get charged. I’m not […]

Asking iPad Questions

Twitter was incredibly slow for an hour or so today.  Apple;s stock price fluctuates massively.  The number of entries in my RSS Reader was 80% above usual.  It had to be Apple’s Tablet reveal. It appears that many tech commenting sites and blogs have pitched their tents on one side of the fence already.  “It’s […]

A Look Back at Apple Special Event Invites

With speculation on Apple’s 27th January event rampant, can we read anything into the invitations that Apple have sent out? To find out I’ve gathered together all the past invites I could find, mapped them to the announcements they corresponded to and tried to look for trends.

Thoughts on an Apple Tablet

It seems almost inevitable.  The room’s been booked, the invitations have been sent out and the flights are scheduled.  Apple must be revealing a Tablet on the 27th.  There remains, however, many questions surrounding exactly what form the device will take. I have a particular interest in the tablet’s user interface.  Interfaces are something that […]
