That’s right, it’s the Commonwealth Bank. Currently there are 50 banks in Australia that support Apple pay but three out of the top four banks do not. Read on for which banks do and don’t support Apple Pay in Australia. Continue reading ⟩

Google pixel phone

Over the past 3 months I have been trialling a Google Pixel Phone. I’m not sure why.  I started getting attracted to the Google apps on my iPhone.  I found myself using Google Inbox for my email, Google Play for my music,  and the Google calendar app instead of Apple’s calendar app. So when Google released their Pixel phone I took the plunge and purchased one to see if it would play nicely with Apple. It’s been a challenging a few months because I can’t get myself back onto my iPhone.  I’ve tried three times and  I simply cannot go back to the iPhone. The Pixel is a great phone and it works very well with OS X. Google have really nailed the cross-platform syncing.  In fact,  when it comes to music and photos it syncs more easily with OS X than the iPhone does.  So this article is not really a review of the Pixel phone. This my experience transitioning from iPhone to  Pixel phone. Continue reading ⟩

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. For a workaround look here.

inbox

Google Inbox has become my preferred email app for my iPhone. I have been using it alongside Apple Mail for about a year but in the last couple of months I have completely ditched the Apple Mail app in favour of Google Inbox.  It’s just lovely to use, where do I start?

motorola

In this article I reviewed 3 bluetooth headsets for audio quality:  the Motorola Roadster Pro, the Parrot Neo HD and the Jabra Freeway. I didn’t like any of them. They sounded fine to the driver of the car but the driver’s voice sounded bad to the person on the other end of the phone.

Since then I have been trying them on the road and it’s been a little different.

In real life there is a clear winner: the Motorola Roadster Pro.

I’ve made a little video so you can see how good it sounds!

mail

 

Have you ever had the problem in the mail app on the iPhone that when you start to type a person’s name all their past (obsolete) email addresses come up! Even after you have deleted someone from  your  ‘Contacts’ they can appear in the ‘To’ field of Mail app when you are writing a new email.  This is because the mail app remembers  the email address of anyone that you have sent an email to . This is very handy if you have someone  that you want to send an email to who is not in your contacts.  But it can get annoying when someone’s old disused email address keeps appearing instead of the new one.

I have already written about how to solve this  problem on the desktop version of mail app in OS X  here.

How do you solve the problem on the iPhone though?  Here’s how.

looqdg

I was skiing last week and noticed quite a few people using ‘selfie sticks’. You may love selfies, you may hate selfies, but these selfie sticks are actually quite a cool piece of hardware. They plug into your iPhone headphone socket and the button on the selfie stick acts as the shutter button for the iPhone camera. They work on Android phones as well.

The winner is the Looq DG ($20 from Amazon). Continue reading to find out why.

I’m giving one away so if you’d like to be in the chance to win your own Looq DG selfie stick just leave a comment below letting me know where I’ve hidden a picture of a green looq DG selfie stick. (It’s hidden in an old article!) The first person to find it will win it.
