A few days ago I wrote about how I was gradually growing less satisfied with the responsiveness of my Apple Watch with the added bloat of newer systems, especially to the Hey Siri command, which besides actually looking at the watch has been my most commonly used interaction with it. Today I stumbled upon a… Continue reading Siri on the Original Apple Watch (Series 0)
I bought my Apple Watch pretty much exactly two years ago, after getting a good deal on someone’s returned Christmas gift; a Space Grey 42 mm Aluminum watch. The ”killer feature” for me was the ability to see and even receive phone calls without having the phone directly on hand. The iPhone 5 I had… Continue reading Musings on the Apple Watch ’Series 0’ in 2018
I’ve had the Apple AirPods for a few days now, and thought I’d record a few of my thoughts on them. EDIT 2017-07-17: I’ve added an update to the end of this article. EDIT 2017-07-20: A second update has been added after going through the rounds with Apple’s support. First of all, the sound quality:… Continue reading Apple AirPods first impressions

I immediately fell in love with Mac Mail: Lightweight and nimble, but at the same time offering a much more powerful experience than Outlook/Entourage, very much thanks to the speed and ease of… Continue reading Mac Mail and fonts
So, I got one of the new Arrandale MacBook Pros a few weeks ago, and I just realized I haven’t commented it yet. I went with the base model; a 2.4 GHz Core i5 with the normal resolution glossy screen. This allowed me to get an Apple Wireless Keyboard, a Mighty Mouse, a Mini DisplayPort… Continue reading MacBook Pro as a sysadmin tool
Alright, so Apple released their new Macbook Pros, with update to the whole series. The 13″ versions retain the Core 2 Duo processors even though they are approaching end of life. Why? Well, the Core ix series of processors contain built-in Intel GPUs. Problem is, they are limited enough to not support the 3D accelerated… Continue reading Updated Macbook Pro series
I guess they finally decided to release the new MacBook Pros. Updates will follow as soon as I have more info.
The most important bitching-point about the iPad seems to have resolved itself – and exactly for the reason I predicted when discussing the matter with techie friends. The problem was, naturally, the lack of functional multitasking on a user-level. The reason was, of course, that Apple is a company that puts user experience at the… Continue reading iPhone/iPad OS 4
