  • First look: Apple TV 4K with tweaked Siri remote design

    I just got this to replace a 2 generation old Apple TV. Didn't realise the big difference in CPU and wireless specs on the 4K vs non. Even though the TV we currently have in non 4K this spec will be better for the future and it is certainly better than the 'old' version. Even just watching the trailers there was no loading lag due to the dual bandwidth. Now I am just waiting for Formula 1 and Rugby apps to come into the sports. But for our kid the Treehouse subscription and episode choice is great, as we killed off the Cable TV a few years back. The nice touch was doing the setup with the iPhone and it using all the iCloud and App Store configurations to migrate and save. Not sure what the issue was with the remote, the gloss/Matt texture feels different and there is a long button for the volume, but maybe it's early days.

  • Apple's 'Designed by Apple in California' book now available in more countries

    If you think these books are expensive, I suggest you go check out the Taschen SUMO books, then you'd see what 'BIG' and expensive look like... hint, they come with their own stand.

  • Apple investigating iCloud Calendar spam solution

    If you ONLY have an iPhone or iPad, you can NEVER visit icloud.com and see the same things as if you are on a Mac/PC - so you can't change the settings... So the only option is to create a new Junk Calendar and go that route. So Apple, please also allow a pass through to the web options too, or and this might be crazy, have those same settings available on the web also available through the App settings on an iOS device...
