Hugs

I have been writing this morning but the piece is proving longer than I anticipated to finish… Instead, this little thought: I’ve just been given an unexpected (because she’s usually asleep when I leave) hug and snuggle from my daughter. Is there anything better in the world than that simple expression of love and affection from one human being to another? I don’t think so. Therefore, from me to you, whoever you are, wherever you are: BIG HUG from me! Have a great day!…

Nothing

Synchronize by default!

Beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind, the single biggest chink in the armour for iOS is it’s lack of a proper synchronising file system. When I say “chink” I actually mean “gaping hole you could drive a juggernaut through”. It’s head scratchingly frustrating that a company who are so clever and have such a good sense of “making things easy” for consumers haven’t solved this problem or worse, have exacerbated it. This lack of vision on Apple’s part has meant that my various…
