Last week I was down in our local JB hi-fi buying a small sound system for my son’s 18th birthday.  I wanted something that would look good, sound good, and last okay into the future. The stand out for me were these Marley Get Together speakers. I first noticed them at a friend’s house.  If you are after a good looking and good sounding small speaker to give someone for Christmas around the $200 mark, I’d recommend these.

Today Apple released iOS 10.2 and sadly we are still stuck with this childish cartoon popup when you click on a word in a text message. I have had numerous people complain about this so I’m not the only one who thinks it turns the iPhone into a very expensive kid’s toy. You can’t copy part of a message so if you need to copy a verification code or address into another app – too bad.

Preview app

Apple’s built in pdf reader app called ‘Preview’ can merge 2 PDF files and edit PDF files. It used to be tricky to merge two PDF files ( read some of my old articles here)  but in macOS Sierra 10.12 it’s easier than ever.  All you need to do is drag the thumbnails that you want to merge from one PDF document to the other and then save the document. You don’t need to buy any extra software. It is built right into OS X.
