I've known for some time that Apple has great assistive technology for the blind in iPhone. I was vaguely aware of VoiceOver, but always wondered how it was used. To see it in action is pretty incredible. Read More ›

Share Notes With iCloud
I learned just yesterday that it's possible to share notes (from iOS/macOS' built-in Notes app) with others via iCloud. I've been aware of this functionality in Reminders for some time now, but I'm glad to know that it's present in Notes as well. Read More ›

Apple's iPhone 7 Event › Quick Thoughts
Apple is once again proving how powerful it is to own the whole stack. They're doing something interesting with A10 fusion. Not only are they producing a 4 core phone, but they're actually using those cores intelligently (looking at you Android OEMs). Read More ›

iMessage New Device Sec
You know when you add a new Apple device to your lineup, you inevitably get a message about a new device added to iMessage? Seems ridiculous doesn't it? I know I added the device, I was there. I always thought it was a bug, a remnant in iOS and OS X from the early days when iMessage was being developed. As they say, it's not a bug, it's a feature. Read More ›

Mid-cycle iOS Update › Apple shipping new features in iOS 9.3
This is the first time since the original iPad and iOS 3.2 that I can recall Apple doing a mid-cycle iOS update with new features. Every September with the release of that year's iOS there is always a slew of new features, but in the interim it seems Apple's most popular OS can feel a bit stale. Read More ›

Turns out Swiss Watchmakers Aren't Original Either
Only 50 pieces will be made, all in white gold, and at a price of $24,900 – only a little bit more than the all-rose-gold Apple Watch Edition. If the watch costs that much, I wonder how much the photocopier was. Read More ›

Attack of the Clones
Every year at CES we see various OEMs debut that year's clones of what Apple did the previous year. Products the OEMs just weren't original enough to think of themselves. Hell, they don't settle for copying just the look, they copy the colors too. Read More ›
