  • Apple releasing iPad Pro keyboard with trackpad later in 2020

    This is click bait to drive traffic to the information and should be taken with a HUGE pinch of salt. If it were true then you would see signs of enhanced input support in the betas as current accessibility features are for assistive devices hence the clunky support for mouse and trackpad.
    This is addressed in the article.
    Are you getting paid by “the information” to share this? Theres no quoting of their previous form on leaks or news and they operate behind a paywall/info sharing system. Normally you quote an information sources form but not in this case, it’s just accepted as valid news.  I call BS here, it stinks of paid promotion. There is nothing in the article that points to a verified source or corroborating source. You guys used to have standards, this should barely make page 2.

    also, what’s with the shitty video ads embedded on olde posts?

  • Hands on: Brydge Pro+ brings a keyboard & trackpad to your iPad Pro

    Their keyboards are decent, but pricey and I'm not a fan of how they connect to the iPad. The touchpad is not great as the basic support for input devices is mouse based so using this with the iPad is a miserable experience.  Save your money and buy a Logitech keyboard and forget the mouse until it is properly supported (unlikely, as mouse support is only a byproduct of supporting assistive devices on the iPad which all emulate mousing input).

  • How to forward calls from your iPhone

    Call forwarding is carrier specific.  All the iPhone does is send a carrier code with the call forward details.

    For the iPhone to do anything more complex would require it to be online and active during the call.  E.g. call forward from a specific group or number to a specific destination, the iPhone would answer the call, then call the destination and merge the call for the duration.

    Some networks offer/used to offer an assistant whereby your calls were answered and then transferred based on your preferences.  This was used to get around the limited logic of call forwards.

    check with your carrier for specific forwarding codes, you can enable multiple call forwards based on their function, here are the codes for O2 uk:

  • 2019 MacBook Pro keyboard changes don't look like they're going to do much

    My day one 2016 MacBook Pro with Radeon 460 is still going strong. I’m hoping that one of the keys goes wonky so I can take it to get a new top case as mine has a shiny spot where I rest my left palm.  I use it every day of the week running vm’s and world of Warcraft and it’s been rock solid even with the bashing the keyboard takes when playing a WoW. When it’s not in use it’s kept in a Cush case in my laptop bag and it gets an occasional wipe over with a mildly damp cloth now and again to clean it.
