Apple made a mistake with naming their new MacBook Pros

I have been thinking a lot over the last week about Apple’s ‘Hello Again’ event, the announcements they made and the subsequent outpouring of anger towards them. I don’t agree with most of the points that are being brought up as part of that uproar but there are a few…

Following your passion is sometimes about not listening to even yourself

Jon Westenberg, the prolific writer on Medium who runs Creatomic, and is one of the few writers I read every post of, wrote about passion, letting others take decisions for you, giving up and rejection, the other day. The part that struck me the most was, We don’t quit because…

Does Apple deserve the criticisms being leveled at it lately?

They could’ve avoided at least one of the three big ones, though   Apple held an event and a lot of people lost their minds. Sound familiar? That’s because this phenomenon is a regular occurrence among us, the technology nerds. The sun might not come up the next day but…

Thoughts about last night’s Microsoft event

Scratching beneath the Surface Microsoft, these days, in addition to creating software, is also working to bringing a new flavor to the hardware that we’ve been working with for years and I like the direction they are going in (except that that direction runs on Windows).

What your Apple Watch Activity Rings say about you

I’m an ‘everyday athlete’. Well, 4 days out of 7. The other days, it seems that I’m ‘captain hungover’ (even though I’m a teetotaler).   There’s a great piece over at my favorite wearable-news website, punnily named Wareable, about the categories that Apple Watch owners fall into, based on the status…

Why it is going to be really difficult for Allo to make a mark in India

What’s App, people?   Google’s ‘newest’ chat app, Allo, has been around for almost a month now. I downloaded it the day it was launched and used it for a few days (for my review and to mostly take Google Assistant for a spin) before it got relegated from my…

Here are some beautiful shots taken with the new Pixels

While reading my daily dose of tech news yesterday, I stumbled upon this post from Android Authority. Google spent a lot of time during their event last week talking up the 12.3MP f/2.0 camera on the back of their Pixel phones (highest score ever on DxOMark’s rankings, it seems). I’m…

Streamed game trials have started appearing in the Play Store

I was catching up on my Instapaper queue (I use Reeder 3 to do this on my iOS and macOS devices) and came across this from Android Police about Google having started allowing trials of apps (games, for now) through streaming from the Google Play Store. “Google started fiddling with…

One Feature That I’d Love To See Apple Borrow From Android

Going ‘back’ to the basics   I recently started using Android again, on a time-share basis with iOS. I bought a Moto G4 as my secondary phone (because of Jio, of course) and I’m using Android after a gap of 2 years (my last tryst with Android was in 2014…
