What’s New in iOS 10? Ten Features to Try Out!

“So, what’s so new?” We wish we had a penny for every time we have been asked that question every time someone has updated their device to a new version of an OS.

First iPhone 7 TVC: Why so Grim and Gritty, Apple?

First iPhone 7 TVC: Why so Grim and Gritty, Apple?    

Mention the words “iPhone ad” and it is a fair chance that most minds will conjure up something with great imagery, gentle music, and soft colours (most of which are on the lighter side), topped off with maybe a touch or two of humor, all designed to leave you with a pleasant, warm, fizzy feeling, not dissimilar to that which […]

The 3.5mm Audio Jack Debate: Much Ado About Not Too Much?

Winter is Coming: The New iPhones Explained in 10 GoT Memes!

Both are iconic and extremely popular. And extremely divisive. Fans claim they are the coolest thing, critics claim they are elitist and disturbing at some levels.

10 Editions, 10 Things that we Got Used to Thanks to the iPhone

It is almost ten years since Steve Jobs introduced the Phone with the lower case “i” (it stood for ‘Internet”, incidentally) and went right and changed the phone-y sides of all our lives. Right from the first iPhone which arrived in mid 2007 to the time of writing, we have seen ten different editions of the iPhone (the iPhone, the […]

 
     
 
 

Believe it or Not: ANY Camera can Take a Great Photograph

Believe it or Not:  ANY Camera can Take a Great Photograph

“Great picture. Which camera did you use?” The second of those two sentences almost always follows the first these days. For, thanks in no small measure to the tech media and marketing campaigns, many of us have been conditioned to accept this rather basic equation: Good picture = Good camera And of course, its derivative Bad picture = Bad camera […]

Elementary, My Dear Watson: Sherlock Holmes Analyzes the iPhone 7 Invite

Every time, Apple sends out an invite, people sit down to analyze it threadbare. This time it’s no different, only instead of using our own puny brains, we decided to call in some of the best.
