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.

icloud

Apple has updated their iPhoto app to ‘Photos’ and included some pretty cool iCloud syncing.  All your photos are available everywhere all the time.  It keeps smaller copies of the photos on your iOS device while allowing the larger original ones to stay in the Cloud and it can download the larger files to your computer if you want.

All in all, it’s very nice.  There are some major drawbacks with this approach though, and you need to be aware of them.  All your photos are now going to the internet, not just to your computer, and this can use a lot of bandwidth.  So here are 3 reasons why iCloud syncing of your photos might be a bad idea, and how to disable it and go back to manual syncing if you’d like to.

These white iPhone lightning cables are the worst cables from Apple that I have experienced. I have Apple mice with USB cables that are 10 years old and still working, but I have not had a lightning cable that has lasted the year out. It’s even worse than this.  I’m moving my mouse around for a few hours day, yet my lightning cable only gets plugged in once each night to recharge. Most of the time it’s just sitting there doing nothing. Yet the white becomes brittle with age and starts to crack & peel and eventually leave the internal wire exposed. Here’s a video of how I repaired it with a cigarette lighter and some heat shrink. It’s a fairly easy and good looking repair as you can see from the photos.

Some people have difficulty controlling the touchscreen on an iPad or iPhone with their fingers, especially older people.  The iPhone touch sensitive screen works on capacitance and it does not respond well to dry fingers.
