Being in several active bands, and also being self-employed, requires a moderate amount of organisation. The easiest way for me to do that is to keep several calendars, one for each project, and then sync them all together on my phone and on my Mac.

I love a gadget, especially a new phone. Recently I bought the new iPhone XS and it’s an amazing piece of tech. One thing that does bother me which almost all new phones (all manufacturers) is how thin they’ve become. Personally I’d rather they had a little more depth to them, similar to the original iPhone, so that they felt a little more sturdy and this would also give space to fit a larger battery and get rid of that awful raised lens area. Before phones got this slim I always felt happy without a case but that’s no longer the way, you really must buy a case for a phone now to protect it.

I write this post sitting in an apartment overlooking the marina on the last day of my holiday in St Lucia. It’s been an amazing experience here as I’ve never previously been anywhere like it. The sun, the sea, the rainforest, it’s all incredible and I’d recommend it to everyone, such a beautiful place.
Now, being a tech nerd, I was a little concerned when I discovered that my UK carrier wanted to charge me around £5/MB for data while I was out here! That would have been a pretty painful bill to return home to, or it would mean I was disconnected from the world for 10 days, also not an option…enter GigSky.

A couple of weeks ago my iPhone stopped displaying my complete library of music. Normally I can just stream anything from my music library whenever I like, but when my AC/DC albums went missing I was not happy. Continue reading “Apple Music not showing your whole library”
Many people know that setting one of your contacts names in your phone to include “ICE” can help paramedics and other people contact your next of kin “In Case of Emergency”. But what if your phone is locked and you are not able to provide your passcode?
Enter Apple Health! Continue reading “Emergency Medical Contact details (or ICE) on iOS”
Caffeine is one of those little apps that I use every single day and don’t even pay a second thought too. So here it is, my attempt to pay it forward and to pass on some handy tips for people who use a Mac everyday and get frustrated with Sleep mode kicking in if they look away for more than a minute. Continue reading “Keep your mac awake with Caffeine”
Here’s a simple little tip that I only discovered yesterday.
I’ve always been frustrated by the fact that there’s no obvious way to set a sleep timer for the Music app on the iPhone. Surely you’d like to listen to music or an audiobook as you drift off? How difficult would it be to have provided an iPhone sleep timer? Continue reading “iPhone Sleep Timer”
Since updating my 2009 iMac 27″ to El Capitan I have had a very ‘glitchy’ experience in Google Chrome. The window flickers a lot and videos and other media don’t play well. This was unacceptable as it’s my main browser and I don’t want to switch. Continue reading “El Capitan and Google Chrome”
I just discovered that some genius has uploaded this rather cool background for the Apple Watch so that you can live out that Fallout fantasy just by glancing at the time.
If, like me, you’re an early adopter, you may wish to pop this on your watch, especially if, like me, you missed out on the special edition Fallout 4 with the included Pip-Boy. Continue reading “Apple ‘Pip-Boy’ Watch”
