  • Everything we know about the 'iPhone 14 Pro' so far

    You can also get rid of the bump by making the phone thicker, no new tech needed 
    Would we accept a thicker phone? I think we would after a decade dedicated to thinness. I’m sure many disagree but I like my thicker Macbook Pro - it’s as elegant a new design in its way as what went before.  And with the iPhone, the extra space inside has potential. 

    An increased thickness should not be over chunky - elegance and lightness are very important in a phone. But it would seem possible to find a middle way. 

    The question is, how thick would iPhone need to be to accommodate the next generation cameras?
  • Bill Gates suggests tech companies like Apple 'deserve' tough questioning

    Yes many of you seem not to have read the article and are going off on a preprogrammed rant (the pic is a bit provocative I have to say). Bill Gates isn’t excluding Microsoft from companies who ‘deserve tough questioning’.  In this case he’s aligning with Apple and the other main tech companies, and just saying ‘when you get this big that is inevitable’ 
  • Future iPad or iPhone could both recognize and display handwriting

    There’s already some kind of (very rudimentary) handwriting recognition built into Notes. Try creating a drawing in the app and hand writing the word “handwriting“. If you then close the note, you’ll find “handwriting“ is then the title of the note. The app has read your handwriting. 
  • Breaking down Apple's AirPods Pro: 8 features that set them apart

    Why is nobody talking about the sound quality?  Yeah, I'm sure the noise cancellation is handy, but what's the sound quality like compared to the prior AirPods or other wireless earbuds on the market?
    Mine arrived this afternoon and i can only be subjective, but compared to my airpods 2 the sound quality seems much more detailed.  The noise cancellation probably accounts for a lot of that, but there’s more.. the bass seems way better.  
    They are comfortable to wear and also IMO look less quirky - I’m pleased. 
    The fit is also more solid with the silicon tips - Giving them a squeeze with gloves on might well be possible depending on what kind of gloves you’re wearing

  • Hands on with the 40mm women's Hermes Apple Watch Series 4

    As a guy I found the headline annoying having been very happy with the smaller watch 3 for the whole of last year.  With the 4, however, I’ve  now changed to the bigger size simply because the battery life was so noticeably poorer on the ’women’s’ size.  Now of course I like it big... that headline grated though!
