Yesterday, Microsoft unexpectedly announced the release of the new Outlook application for Mac for Office 365 subscribers. I downloaded it straight away, tested it out and made this video.
I’ve found myself filming a lot on my iPhone and iPad and now the modern generations of iDevices film in 1080p HD a lot of space can get taken up very quickly. Sometimes it’s not always convenient to hook your iPad up to a laptop and download the footage using iPhoto.
A solution would be to get a wireless hard drive like the LaCie Fuel. This hard drive has only recently been released after being announced at CES 2014. I’ve been testing it out for about a week now.
A drummer I know brought in his Christmas present into the office and it blew me away. It was the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker. As soon as I saw and heard it, I knew I wanted one.
Being a musician, I rather shockingly don’t have any decent speakers through which to play music at home. I have a home theatre system and an okay bluetooth speaker by Blaupunkt, but neither of them truly cut it in terms of sound quality.
Recently, I posted a review of the RAVPower Luster 3000 mAh portable charger. This is a great charger for the commute to work as it’s light and easy to carry around. But what about longer trips where you want to charge more than one item multiple times?
Portable chargers. They’re not exactly the most exciting products to buy, but with our ever increasing dependancy on phones and the developers resistance to develop increased battery life, they’re becoming more of a necessity than ever.
There are all sorts of chargers available to buy online, varying in size and quality so it’s difficult to know what’s the best to get.
AyeGear are a Scottish company that make garments for travel – meaning that they have many pockets to store gadgets and other things when you’re on the go.
Being a gadget nerd I was really interested in getting their H13 hoodie – 13 pockets including one for the iPad, a see through pocket for phones (you can use the phone whilst it’s still in the pocket!) and plenty of places to keep other things like portable device chargers, cables etc.
I should say right away, I’m reviewing this from a slightly weird angle. This review will probably be useful for someone who owns a slightly older DSLR camera as opposed to someone who has something much more recent that will take advantage of this SD Card’s speed.
I’ve been shopping around for a good camera backpack for a while now. I tend to take a lot of stuff around with me when out taking photos, including my iPad and recently acquired USB charger.
You don’t always realise you need portable power, but as I use various bits of technology on extended visits it becomes quite cumbersome to take power supplies and there isn’t always somewhere handy to charge your device anyway. I had a small Pebble charger for my mobile, but its connectivity options were limited so I couldn’t charge my iPad with it.
Another day, another cloud storage service appears on my radar. I already have Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive and SkyDrive services and recently I’ve added yet another, except this one, is probably the best I’ve used so far.
‘Copy’ is a service available for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android that gives you 15GB of free storage, plus for every friend referral you make, you get a bonus 5GB! That is much more generous than many other cloud services, although it does leave you wondering how the company will make any money.
Using Copy is very similar to Dropbox. It will install a folder on your computer that will copy anything you put in there, into your cloud storage. Using the mobile apps makes it very easy to share files with people and you can browse by file type easily too.
Unlike some of the other cloud storage services I’ve signed up to, I will more likely use this one as the free space given is so generous.
If you’d like to sign up, use this link. You’ll get a bonus 5GB space taking your free amount to 20GB!
