The Nintendo Switch Wins

Every dam time. Constantly. Always with the idiotic updates. Software update after software update that only happen when I want to pick my Xbox controller up and have a quick game in between the stresses of modern life. It doesn’t matter if I’ve turned on update in the background or not because Microsoft love putting road blocks in the way – and this is why the Nintendo Switch wins the...

Black Pattern Wallpapers

Thanks to the iPhone X OLED display I am even more in love with black wallpapers than normal. I roll my eyes a little when people claim to save battery, but they definitely save my eyes. Using black also seems to help not put as much stress on my brain. By switching to a black wallpaper I stuffer from far fewer headaches if I am stuck using my phone for...

The iPhone Needs A Camera Button

The simple fact is, Apple like removing things. From home buttons, to MacBook Pro ports, to headphone jacks – there is a relentless march towards a simple unibody design with as few cut outs as possible. It makes the design of technology sleek, appealing and arguably leaves more room for important things like battery. Although it’s only when you start using a device that cares more about usability than looking...

Wheelchair Tourists - London

This isn’t the right thing to say but I dread taking my daughters wheelchair anywhere new. Most places are great but I can’t escape the feeling of dread because it only takes one poor experience to put you off completely – thankfully London was pretty great.

As much as people try and convince me otherwise, since the iPhone 6 I just cant use my phone without a case on. The rounded corners and slippery materials leave me with too much worry that my phone will drop to the floor at any moment. I’ve tried loads of cases, from dirt cheap to surprisingly expensive - but stuck with an Apple version as it simply fit and feels...

iMessage on Android

For years the thoughts and rumours of iMessage on Android has been floating around. Depending on who you are listening to you get every response from “never going to happen” to “Apple need to do it”. I have often been dismissive of this ever happening, but more recently I think it could work and really should be something that Apple work on.

Apple Activity Needs Expansion

Yesterday was a nice warm day in the UK, so I decided the tan mark from my Apple Watch could use a bit of help fading. Instead of strapping it on my wrist first thing in the morning I left it on the stand. This is the first time I I haven’t had it attached to me for a long time, and it it has highlighted a huge problem with...

Jisoncase iPad Pro Case Review

For as long as I have been using an iPad as my main computer I have struggled with where to keep it. I have never been a fan of many case designs as they often add a lot of weight which makes holding an iPad much more difficult. Couple this with the fact a case is pretty much redundant while in use, it’s usually in my hand or being used...

Screen Time Is The Most Important Metric

Curbing screen time is very trendy in tech circles at the minute. There have been huge movements to change app design, turn it black and white and even calls for manufactures to step in and stop people using them so much. So it was no surprise when Apple took to the stage, only a few weeks after Google i/o and launched pretty much the same thing. ScreenTime is a quintessential...

You're Not Cool Enough For Micro.blog

It’s become a bit of a running joke amongst my tech friends. A personal meme that I keep repeating the same sort of phase when questioned about a whole range of topics. Anything from GDPR to Social Media harassment my answer - micro.blog.
