iOS7 isn't Great

With the release of iOS7 I’ve found it to be a very mixed bag, from the one respect we have a new launch via Apple but from the other it doesn’t feel like an Apple products.

I have felt Apple has lost it has way in many regards for design. Where the new iOS7 gave me everything I could ever want out of a mobile operating system, Android Functionality + Windows 8 design. I am more underwhelmed by the new release and the following is why.

Say it Digitally

If I could predict one thing for this year I would really have to say it’s the rise of the machines, well all things mobile that is.

Smart phones and mobile computing will be king for 2012 and the real winners are going to be the company who cannot only create a great experience on them but also really integrate the social to the mix. Read More...

Apple Refurbs


This has been a thing I’ve been ask about a lot lately, the best kept secret in my opinion for buying a mac is the Apple Refurb store. My last 3 Apple purchases were from the refurbished part of the site, generally you’re getting new computer with a 20%-35% discount this I think is pretty darn good.

My Early 2007 Macbook Pro was purchased via the site, so instead of the $2699 price tag I managed to get it for $1749 which at the time I thought was an extremely good price. Read More...

Motion 5

My passion has always been motion graphics and animation so when Apple released Motion for $59.95 I was keen to get a hold of it. I was even more keen to get a hold of it when they price dropped it $10, thank you strong AUD.

Weatherzone No.1 in the Appstore

Weatherzone Plus hit number one paid App in the Appstore on iTunes on the 7th and 8th of November, this is something I am proud of being a part of.

Though I was one of 3 working on the new Weatherzone App, I was mainly concentrated on the look and feel of the finished product along with the promotional collateral, however to hit no.1 on the Appstore is a massive feat for Weatherzone. Read More...

Mac Mini 2011

After a year of waiting the new Mac Minis were finally released last week, my initial impressions was that Apple have finally produced an impressive little home entertainment and compact desktop unit.

I was wondering if Apple would going with the new AMD A8 APU with a dedicated video card, yet I was kind of prepared for a Sandy Bridge i3 with the craptacular Intel Integrated Graphics. Read More...

Apple iPad2

It’s funny to see how well the iPad1 was critiqued (being under featured) while the new iPad2 is favoured to outsell the original by a massive margin. The big question I need to ask do I want to wait for the new iPad2 or pick up a real bargain with the current model (being $240-$340 cheaper than it was a week ago)? Read More...
