  • Apple Watch continues to help save lives in a variety of ways

    A very close friend of mine who is 52 hard a heart attack while out running recently, he was wearing his Apple Watch 5. He told me the day after that is Apple Watch never signaled anything was wrong before or during the attack. My point don't put too much weight behind what Apple claims about this device. 
    Although the first picture in the article shows that Apple Watch never checks for heart attacks.

    QNAP TS-251+ would the equivalent of the synology listed here. In some ways works better.  
    I'm not sure if this is the correct word, but I wish it was more user friendly as its not something I'd recommend to those that aren't tech savvy or willing to put some effort into learning how to use the UI or properly securing the device.
    Having done some research I went Synology (218 Play) rather than QNAP because the consensus appeared to be that although the hardware wasn’t as powerful, the apps were more ‘polished’ and easier for a first timer to use. I’m still learning what it can do!

  • Tim Cook refutes negative IDC Apple Watch report, says early holiday sales set new record

    I obviously cannot speak for anybody else, but I still like my first gen Apple Watch, and continue to wear/use it everyday.

    Me too - Watch OS3 has given mine a new lease of life, so much so that for my usage, I see no need to upgrade.  I suppose this will be seen as a problem with 'built in non-obsolescence', the same way that the iPad 2 my wife uses is still chugging away after 5 years of use!!

  • Outage of iCloud Mail prevents some users from accessing email

    Have been thinking to switch my main email account to iCloud, mainly for security/privacy reasons - would appreciate any recommendations, pros/cons, dislikes, etc.  (I’ve given up on online reviews of just about everything.)
    I made the switch from using Outlook as one of my email accounts a few months ago and apart from today with this outage, I cannot recall any problems.

    Apple is very clear and states repeatidly that the watch will NOT warn of heart attack.    It can't.  
    Faulting Apple Watch for not detecting a heart attack is like faulting a Porsche for not being able to haul a yard of topsoil.
    I've never seen that statement from Apple could you point it out to me? My friend was running not driving a car or digging a ditch. He fortunately lives in Sweden so the hospital stay and test and treatment was all covered by that countries universal care. Just hope you don't experience a hear attack. 
    I think the reason could be that he lives in Sweden - I've not heard of that being one of the countries where the EKG function is enabled.

  • Keynote, Numbers, Pages iWork apps updated for both macOS and iOS

    Hooray - the loss of the numeric keyboard following the previous update was really annoying me!

  • 'iPhone 14 Pro' could feature both hole-punch and pill-shape display design

    I hope the rear cameras are flush like that mock up!
    That would be a far bigger incentive for me to upgrade from my X than changes to the notch (which after over 4 years of use I hardly notice)!

  • Apple debuts 14-inch MacBook Pro with HDMI, MagSafe, and a notch

    The UK Apple site has just updated with the new models - I think that the days of my 2012 rMBP as my main machine could be limited!!

  • Audacity 3.0 called spyware over data collection changes by new owner

    I'm glad that I'm still on version 2.4.1 - one advantage of being on an old MacBook Pro running macOS Catalina - there's no pressure to update!!
