Jonathan Ive in Conversation  Voir?

Watching Jonny Ive in conversation below is fascinating. He would make for an intriguing body language study; nervous, unconfident and unsure of himself are the traits that come over to me, but I am not an expert in the art of studying people.

iCloud Drive doesn't work either  Voir?

Stupid!  Voir?

I was in Carphone Warehouse today picking up a phone case and had to wait behind a lady who was buying a new iPhone 6. This being Carphone Warehouse, there wasn't enough staff and so the wait took some time.

I watched as she tried to restore her backup via iCloud, which didn't seem to be working properly because it is iCloud, and then in astonishment as the sales assistant asked if it was OK if he wiped her old iPhone which she had part exchanged.

"Yeah fine. Thanks"

She had left all of her data on there, given him the passcode and he just left it in the box on the counter. That is crazy and highlights just how ignorant some people are of security and the potential for their personal data to be used for bad reasons.

I have no reason to believe that the sales assistant would do anything wrong, but if by chance he did it would be completely her fault.

A £15,000 mobile bill  Voir?

A teacher says he is facing financial ruin after Vodafone insisted he pay a £15,000 bill run up after thieves stole his mobile phone in Barcelona.
Osian Rhys Edwards, 29, from Barmouth, Gwynedd, says he called the company immediately to cancel his phone.
But weeks later he was shocked to receive the huge bill, which had been racked up in just a few hours calling premium rate lines.
Vodafone said Mr Edwards had not called them for four days after the theft... More at the BBC.

It would be easy to view Vodafone as being inflexible and too harsh in this situation. When I read the whole article, however, some questions came to light-

Surely he can prove that he called Vodafone whether it was by mobile or a landline and that a conversation took place.

Actually there were two other questions, but they didn't make sense so have been removed.

The devil and the deep blue sea  Voir?

When the iPhone was limited to a single carrier per market, they also had that control over the networks. They could (and did) dictate how much the monthly tariff cost. How many minutes, texts, and MB an iPhone user would have. They even prevented the phone being sold to PAYG customers.
You may have thought you were on O2, but you were really on an Apple MVNO.
That has (mostly) changed now. You can get an iPhone and put it on any network, at any price point, with any services and wrest control from Apple. And they hate losing control.
The micro-SIM was their first move. Use a SIM which cannot be swapped with any other phone. Make it hard enough to get a normal SIM into an iPhone that most people won't bother. Yes, there are SIM cutters and caddies - this is an imperfect solution they foisted on to the marketplace. One which is backfiring as other manufacturers start using the micro-SIM... More here.

The article above is well worth reading because it touches on something that many of us have expected to happen for some time. Personally, I would not trust Apple to have my best interests at heart as an MVNO, but to be fair I do not trust any mobile operator either. What we do have at this time, however, is some level of clarity when dealing with just one operator. Some level

Pocket Casts hits the web  Voir?

Pocket Casts is, in my opinion, the best mobile podcast player available and I have tried many. Shifty Jelly has now taken things further and will let you play all of your podcasts on a desktop at for a reasonable one-off fee. It may not appeal to everyone, but if you spend a lot of time at your desktop or laptop and want better sound quality, it could be worth at least giving the 14 day trial a go. I suspect I will be signing up for this one.

He said he didn't make it on a PC, where it would have been infinitely easier, because he only had the Xbox 360 version when he started: "MineCraft wouldn't work on my Mac for some reason but recently I got a PC for college and now I have it on both." More at Gizmodo.

That is quite amazing.

iPad Air 2, iMac retina, Mac Mini and...  Voir?

Much of today's Apple keynote was expected; a new iPad Air, updated Mac Mini, new iMac and the releases of Yosemite and iOS 8.1.

I was talking to Neil over iMessage while it was transmitting and the words "All a bit predictable today" were typed. This is indeed a true assessment of what occurred, but I don't mind that if the problems with iCloud etc are fixed, but I am not optimistic if I am honest.

Anyway, let's look at the new stuff-

iMac with Retina 5K display

The catchily named iMac with Retina 5K display is a stunning achievement. 14.7 million pixels will no doubt look amazing, but £1,999 is a big premium over the... Hold on, actually it isn't. The 27" 3.4GHz iMac is £1,599 and has a standard hard drive whereas the Retina has a Fusion drive. The later is also better specced with a 3.5GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 and AMD Radeon R9 M290X graphics.

Despite my reservations that the Retina screen will only offer a definite advantage to those who need such accuracy, it is sensibly priced.

Neil, however, made a very good point about the potential market- "I could really only see it being useful for professional video / photo editing and I would have thought most of those would be using a Mac Pro." That is true, but maybe they will buy the new iMac just for the screen which is arguably still competitive with other displays of this size.

iPad Air 2

Touch ID was absolutely needed and the 6.1mm depth is insane, but I can't quite work out why so much effort has gone into the camera, and why so much keynote time was dedicated to that feature. We have all seen people using their iPads to take photos, those crazy people, and it seems that Apple is seeing a market there. The iPad 2 Air is an obvious upgrade, as is the iPad mini 3 which was almost breezed over during the keynote.

The realisation that Apple is now selling the iPad mini 3, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, iPad Air and iPad mini was a bit of a shocker. I get the logic of selling a tablet (original iPad mini) for only £199, but mine is very slow these days and does not provide a positive experience- why would Apple want to do that? Also, selling 5 different models speaks of trying to cover all price points and it feels more than a little Samsung to me. It's confusing at best and the fact that all of these models still start with a measly 16GB is disappointing.

Tom Reestman on Twitter summed it up nicely- "If the iPhone 6+ wasn

The free speech party  Voir?

Your tweet could win the fame lottery, and everyone on the Internet who thinks you are wrong could tell you about it. Or one of the "verified" could call you out to be the tribute for your community and fight in their Hunger Games.
Say something about feminism or race, or sea lions and you'd find yourself inundated by the same trite responses from multitudes. Complain about it, and they turn nasty, abusing you, calling in their friends to join in. Your phone becomes useless under the weight of notifications; you can't see your friends support amongst the flood.
Twitter has become the hate speech wing of the free speech party... More here.

I am struggling with the presumption that Twitter is to blame for the morons who are ruining the service for some. It appears that some believe that any service that allows people to speak their minds is somehow doing it wrong. There is no excuse for the behaviour of trolls and they deserve 100% of the blame.

The BBC Genome Project  Voir?

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.
This is a historical record of both the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today... More here.

Search for your birth date and see what was airing. Must say it all looked rather serious back in the day, but it is a fascinating resource. There is also a good article here showing how it was made.

Timbuk2 x Blue Bottle Travel Coffee Kit  Voir?

For us, designing the Timbuk2 x Blue Bottle Travel Kit meant considering a wide range of coffee obsessives. The urban traveler, weary of stale hotel selections. The weekend adventurer, gearing up for a surf session or camping trip. The road tripper, now liberated from the scorched (and sometimes blueberry-flavored) disappointments of gas station urns. Starting now, the proper tools are collected and within reach. It's time to Brew Where You Are... More at Timbuk2.

The price is high, but if you travel often and love good coffee, and are a bit of a hipster, this will float your boat.

Meh...  Voir?

Apple will likely launch a new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 today alongside iOS 8.1, Yosemite and perhaps a surprise. As I considered this event, it dawned on my that the iPhone takes 90% of my interest in the company with the iMac being almost forgotten despite receiving continual usage every day. The iPad never gets used by me, but I would like to see something done with Apple TV. An updated model to allow apps and games would be nice to see and perhaps a new iMac that really knocks my socks off.

It still seems hard to believe that Apple could release so much in one day and not cause all sorts of problems in the long run on the software side, but a new Apple TV would tempt me and maybe even a 27" iMac.

How about you? Is there anything Apple could launch today which would have you jumping for your credit card immediately?
