Yosemite – initial impressions…

Apple has had us in for quite a few surprises, this year at WWDC. Their work in tightly integrating their iOS and Mac OS systems seem to be what the developers looked forward to. Like with Mavericks last year, we’re here to discuss our findings about Apple’s next Mac OS release – Yosemite.Yosemite

Like we have done many times earlier, again, we’re not really authorised to try out the Developer Preview of Yosemite. But we figured, there is always a chance that we’d not be lucky enough to see a tomorrow; better live dangerously. So, my partner in crime and brother, Darryl, found a way for us to experience it right now, before you lot get to try it in the beta program. Oh! Here’s a link to sign up for it.

Windows 8.1 – out of the “blue”…

The most recent Microsoft Build conference happened a few days ago and to be honest, we were waiting for this day ever since we realised Windows 8 is not yet done amazing us. We’re quite predictable, unlike Microsoft of course, that way and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next. Windows 8.1 preview has been made publicly available and after a day of using it we love it more than would to have a stable internet connection; seriously, this post should have been up days ago.

Mavericks – a closer look at a marvel…

I’m looking forward to all of Mavericks’ features, so let’s co-title it. Mavericks – The top new features of the next Mac OS X.

This year at WWDC, Apple unveiled a lot of things they’re bringing out for the rest of the year. Honestly, I’m the most thrilled about the next version of OS X. Sure iOS had a major overhaul, but I won’t be thinking about it until and unless I own an iOS device.

iOS 7 – Radically different but familiar…

Whoa! What a keynote it was. It has been quite some time since we saw iOS grow immensely from its previous version – about 9 months ago. Really, has it been only 9 months? Here I was wondering what it was Apple could ever do to improve on the already fantastic iOS. For all intents and purposes, iOS seemed to have hit a plateau. That was until today when iOS 7 was finally revealed to the developers at WWDC and all of us who bothered to watch the keynote speech. Wait till you find out all its news, can you?

Well we can’t. Here are the highlights on iOS 7.

iPad Mini calculations and a few tests…

After making a custom stylus for capacitive screens, I decided to go try the same on devices other than my own. At present the only touchscreen device I own is a Nokia Lumia 800 that I couldn’t use it both as a camera and the test device. The iPad mini would make a good testbed, if I had one. So, a friend offered to let me use his device to test out the stylus. He also helped me make the video and I thank him for that. As soon as he decides to stop being anonymous you’ll know who to thank too.
