The Forté for Apple Watch cradle is typically Twelve South and dare I say typically Apple. The stainless steel frame and black leather base are without doubt elegant and it would work perfectly with a stainless steep Apple Watch. It is not a product I have ever looked at before and at $49.99, it is … Continue reading Forté for Apple Watch review
It has been 7 years since Apple introduced the Apple Watch and the strap mechanism rarely gets a mention these days. It has become a feature that we are so familiar with that it is invisible, even when changing a strap. With decades of unwieldily spring bars behind us and a gradual move to quick … Continue reading The genius of the Apple Watch strap system
The Rolex Daytona (functional, might I add) isn’t the only detail on the back of the iPhone – clearly doubling down on the racing-inspired theme, the phone also comes with decorative dashboard dials modeled to look like a speedometer and oil + fuel indicators, and actual functional flip switches, all crafted from 18K gold… More … Continue reading Caviar’s Rolex Daytona iPhone 14 Pro🤣
As of the end of the September quarter, Apple had reduced its net cash position to $49 billion. For the fiscal year ended in September, Apple bought back $90.2 billion shares, up from $85.5 billion in fiscal 2021, and the highest annual total ever. Over the last 10 years, Apple has repurchased $554 billion in … Continue reading Come on Apple, stop taking the p*ss!

The sudden appearance of app ads in the App Store is a bit of a shock visually and more importantly, ethically. Obviously adverts are not a bad thing in general, but you just don’t expect them within official Apple apps. Gambling app ads have now been paused following complaints from developers, but the fact that … Continue reading Will Apple’s money grab backfire?
21 years sounds like a long time, but in that relatively short period so much has been born from the original iPod. Arguably we have the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and myriad other products from different brands all because of the original iPod.
The arrival of the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models were accompanied by the reinvention and return of MagSafe, and it became an instant hit! There is a great sense of satisfaction, in my opinion, to have things just stick to your phone. Be it a pair of earphones (maybe that’ll be the next generation … Continue reading MagSafe is more than just a magnet
I love a good pair of earbuds! In fact, I really can’t function without my personal earbuds. Once my earbuds are in, the rest of the world is out. I deep dive into the world of my favorite tunes, away from real-world problems, happy in my own little audio bubble. Hence, owning a pair of … Continue reading Crazy AirPods Pro 2 competitors
My wife really wants MagSafe on her iPhone for use in the car and to lose the hassle of cables. It was never really a big problem, but she got strangely jealous at how easy it is to charge my iPhone 13 Pro. Her 11 Pro does not have MagSafe and so she had to … Continue reading Add MagSafe to your pre-iPhone 12 iPhone
Apple marked the iPhone 5c as a vintage product in October 2020, which meant the company and its service providers could only provide certain repairs for the product, subject to part availability. On November 1, Apple will mark the iPhone 5c as an obsolete product, ending all repairs and services, according to a memo sent … Continue reading Apple to Mark iPhone 5c as Obsolete
The iPhone 14’s new Crash Detection feature, which is supposed to alert authorities when it detects you’ve been in a car accident, has an unexpected side effect: it dials 911 on rollercoasters. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, the feature has had law enforcement sent to amusement parks on numerous occasions after … Continue reading The iPhone 14 rollercoaster non-emergency
Someone at work joked last week that I looked like Ben 10 because of the Apple Watch Ultra. I vaguely remembered Ben 10, my son watched the show when he was very young, but wasn’t sure of the link. Today I remembered the conversation and had a look. I think he had a point…
I spent some time with the Ultra this week in the Apple Store and the experience was a little strange. It turned into a 25 minute debate with the Apple employee about why the Ultra is not ‘the most innovative watch ever made’. His words, not mine. My wife and I were in the shopping … Continue reading Apple Watch Ultra Review
There’s no getting around the fact that the Ultra looks big. But it does not feel heavy on the wrist. The case surface has a different finish than the Series 5–7 models that were offered in titanium. On those Series models, the titanium surface had a brushed finish. On the Ultra, it has a sort … Continue reading The Apple Watch Ultra is a terrible watch design
The Apple Watch series 8 brings not much to a line of smartwatches which is dominating the sector, and potentially the traditional budget watch sector as well. The S8 chip has the same CPU as the S7Crash detection is included (you will hopefully never use this)Wrist temperature sensing during sleep and cycle tracking with retrospective … Continue reading What is Apple doing with the Apple Watch? Not a lot…
But something was very different this time, something sort of, uh, unsettling. Instead of suggesting a gleaming world where everything is only getting better, instead, today we saw Apple’s vision of a future where everything is literally trying to murder us, and death lurks around every ring-closing outdoor jog. And frankly, it’s turning me into … Continue reading Apple Knows We’re All Going To Die
Garmin posted the above to highlight the battery life of the Enduro 2. It is a valid comparison to the Apple Watch Ultra because that offers up to 36 hours of battery (1.5 days- not sure under 2 deserves to be a plural?) and the Enduro offers 150 hours (+6 days). In reality the battery … Continue reading When Apple commentators go blind…
