  • iPhone 14 Pro

    I ordered a new iPhone! 14 Pro it is, to replace the original iPhone SE that I bought in April 2016. Loving the Dynamic Island. It is exciting because I am frugal with gadgets (and everything generally!) and I buy iPhones only a few times in a decade. So this is a big moment in the house. […]


  • Outlook app issues

    I finally removed the Microsoft Outlook app from my phone. It still keeps freezing and getting in my way. The Outlook tech support person was kind and offered further help when I blogged and tweeted my troubles with the app in October. However, I still face this problem with the app. The frequent “performance improvements […]


  • No 20th anniversary iMac?

    I hate it when an Apple event happens and I don’t see any updates to the products I need. My work computer is due for a refresh. So I ordered the latest iMac anyway despite no twentieth anniversary iMac refresh.


  • Kindle, Kano and a money lesson

    I bought a Kindle Paperwhite and Kano Computer Kit while I was in the US last week. I also did not buy an iPhone 8 Plus. My first attempt to buy Kindle was at the end of 2010. But that Kindle was lost even before it reached me along with my friend’s lost checked-in baggage. […]

Now I have internet in this place I am going to spend the next two weeks. I am on Idea Cellular 3G and their customer care isn’t helpful in helping me setup Personal […]


  • Tim Cook’s letter to customers

    One of my Facebook friends posted the link to this interesting Tim Cook’s letter to Apple’s customers. I am shocked by these two paragraphs: …now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to […]


  • Tim Cook on privacy at Apple

    Read the interesting message from Tim Cook on Apple’s stance on privacy. I am impressed with the following two paragraphs: Our business model is very straightforward: We sell great products. We don’t build a profile based on your email content or web browsing habits to sell to advertisers. We don’t “monetize” the information you store […]
