Managing a budget but being into apps is proving a little more difficult these days. With more and more apps switching to subscriptions I’m torn on what to use. I looked back at my entire purchase history on iOS and whittled the apps I will use down into two categories What have I already paidContinue reading “Which apps am I using? AKA using the apps you’ve already paid for”
I’m sure I’ll get blasted for continuing to beat this dead horse but I was actually enjoying using Reminders then this happened. It’s showing that I have 4 items due today (I actually have 1) but the 3 it’s picked up are nothing. As you can see in the second image it’s showing 3 blankContinue reading “My trust issues with Apple Reminders”
Source: Ecosia iOS 14.3 brings a new search default in Ecosia, which I completely missed existed. It seems a great idea and I’m always looking at ways at being more environmentally responsible. I’ve switched to DuckDuckGo but I’ll be moving over to Ecosia going forward.
So I updated to Big Sur on the 8GB 2016 12″ MacBook to test the final public release performance and whilst it does run a bit faster than the beta I’d not recommend it. It looks fantastic but there is a lot of lag in the experience on this little machine and I’ll be revertingContinue reading “Can you run macOS Big Sur on the 12” MacBook?”
The last of the iPhone models are officially starting to arrive with people and I’m very curious to keep a close eye on the Mini. I want it to do well this year so that it continues to sell well and we get the model made next year. Until I sort out a job I’mContinue reading “iPhone 12 Mini and Pro Max launch day”

Personally I’d hold off for the next patch before installing and if you have 8GB RAM I’d carefully consider giving it a miss for now. I’m testing it again on a 12″ MacBook and it’s not that great inContinue reading “What’s new in Big Sur?”
Source: Birchtree Another great video from Matt Birchler, this time he goes through how he uses his iPad Pro to get work done. It’s gotten me to install Things again, especially because of the widget possibilities the app offers. I would do something similar once I’m setup but my video making chops aren’t great, maybeContinue reading “Getting work done on an iPad Pro”
Source: AnandTech It’s hard wrapping my head around what the M1 means for the Mac. There’s not much to compare it to and it’s still unclear how much RAM you’ll need on a machine. AnandTech have done a good job here by looking at the A14 and speculating.
I watched the Apple keynote yesterday where we found out what Apple has planned for bringing it’s own chips to the Mac line. M1 is the name and it’s pretty impressive but for me (as an iPad first user) the most exciting bits were how it’s coming closer to the iPad in a key areas.Continue reading “The most exciting things from the new Apple M1 is bringing it closer to the iPad”
