I Want A Better Looking Smartwatch

When the rumours first started hinting at Apple working on a smartwatch, I was already sold. My wrist had already had an Android wear watch strapped to it, but since my switch to Apple products, my pebble watch although great wasn’t cutting it. Now four years later, it is the single bit of hardware that…

Considering Jumping The Walls

I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but I use a lot of Apple products. I understand this might come as a shock, but quite a few years ago I decided it was the best option for me to lean in and get the benefits of living solely in the Apple garden. I’ve dipped…

Where Does Targeted Advertising End?

I often day dream about the perfect future of pretty basic products. This often leads to some strange outcomes and random doodles but lately I have been thinking through the future of targeted advertising and I’m a little worried. Don’t get me wrong my ideal future for being tracked around the internet, and also real…

Over-Stretching To Upgrade

One of the most difficult urges I struggle to let go of is my desire for stuff. To buy things just because I can, and upgrade to the latest and greatest simply because it was released. Thankful this pang is getting less and less, but there is an over arching trend of commercialism to push…

Where To Put Your Tech Investment

For many years there were clear differences between the technology we bought. Clear divides between what companies were and were not able produce, the laptop market was still as it is now, but in mobile some phones sucked and other prevailed. A tech world was a sea of constant compromises as brands valued different things…

Using Notion Web-Clipper

There aren’t many things that get me invested in a whole new platform, but reading offline and web clipping is one issue I come up against all the time. It’s not everyones bag, but when I write online or save things on a professional level, I like having everything in one place. Some services do…

How To To Use Rodecaster Pro Multi Track With Audio Hijack

It has only been a few days since Rode updated its Rodecaster Pro to utilise Muti track but it has already proved to be a brilliant upgrade. The ability to output upto 14 tracks simultaneously for post editing is quite frankly a ridiculous feat, but may take a little time to get your head around.…

Rodecaster Pro Gets Multi Track

On the very last day of the month Rode released software version 1.1.0 for its podcast mixer the Rodecaster Pro. No big deal you might think, software updates come out all the time, but this one enables the hardware to output multiple tracks via USB and makes recording and editing a podcaster even easier. This…

Moving To The Bigger iPad

For as long as I’ve been using an iPad as my computer I’ve used it because it was the most portable option I could find. I’ve hovered around the 10” mark since there were options in size 1 and been perfectly happy doing so. It gave me a screen big enough do what I needed…

Homescreen In 2019

Since sharing my homescreen and a few recommended apps in October last year I have been unsatisfied with my phone. I have spoken before about my love hate relationship with using a smartphone, I tried to remove loads of apps and almost turn it dumb – but I realised I loved having a computer in…

Shortcut: Micropost To Jekyll Blog

You may remember me trying to quit Twitter (well in fact I’ve tried several times) and start using micro.blog. This didn’t work, for various reasons, so I have resurrected my project to try and build a version on my own blog. This is pretty easy to get off the ground but I never got it…
