  • Smallbig

    So I feel a little vindicated by this article on ZDNet telling about a recent study that found Apple Users are not buying the bigger handsets. People on average just don’t have hands that big, to me the normal 6 and 6s are too big and I frequently have to do that double tap thing […]

  • Easily forgotten


    As a long time Mac user (some 25+ years now) it is sometimes easy to forget just what a charmed existence we have. Recently we purchased a new machine for the household, a wintel laptop made by Hewlett Packard who for marketing reasons I am sure, chose to name the device an “Envy”. On paper […]

  • Steven P. Jobs 1955-2011

    After many years of battling illness, Steve Jobs – co founder of Apple, has passed away aged 56 I guess in respect for Steve’s Buddhist beliefs, I should probably say moved on. You could tell that Steve knew he wasn’t long for this life by the way he was getting his affairs in order, in […]

  • CoreData at the heart of FCPX

    From what I am reading an Apple Technology called CoreData is at the heart of the new Final Cut Pro X software. CoreData is a bit like a monolithic database that stores all the metadata for all your FCPX projects, instead of the data being stored in a project file as Final Cut Pro did. […]
