    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/03/2017

    » This past month, we saw the release of what was possibly the best movie featuring the Caped Crusader: The Lego Batman Movie (yeah, move over, Christopher Nolan). While we everyday people don't have the skills nor the money to become the Dark Knight, these gadgets may bring us ever-so-slightly closer to being the masked vigilante Bangkok needs. Not included: Batsuit with batnipples and tragic origin story.

    Original intent drives Jabra's new fitness earbud

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 12/04/2017

    » Entirely sweat and waterproof, the Elite Sport is, as its name suggests, a great choice of headphones for working out. Providing decent sound quality with a snug, customisable rubber frame that commendably keeps the earphones where they should be, while keeping ambient noises out, the device is also greatly versatile, able to act as a decent hands-free headset for calls as well as a fitness tracker with HRM (heart rate monitor) capabilities. What the device can't do, however, is act as an on-the-go headphone for your daily needs, with a measly three-hours of battery life per charge. The provided charging case that comes with the headphones does provide a further two charges to your use -- for another six hours of use -- though it probably won't be practical.

In the next couple of weeks we can expect a series of comments about how Apple will fail; and on how it should spend its cash on buying companies. Ignore these: Apple does its own thing and is usually right in the long run.

    A good quarter for Apple and looking to the future

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 08/02/2017

    » Last week, Apple released figures for its most recent quarter, which includes the run up to the new year. There was revenue of US$78.4 billion, beating Wall Street experts again.

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 25/01/2017

    » Research company Gartner claims that 20% of organisations will use smartphones in place of physical access cards by 2020. A few days before reading that, I had been in the new head office of COM7, where staff are signed in and out using iBeacon and a smartphone app. This also controls access to specific areas.

    Making the MacBook Pro mine

    Life, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 07/12/2016

    » My intention had been to run the 2016 MacBook Pro I have as a test machine, with the main work continuing on my 2013 Mac until its replacement arrives in a couple of weeks' time. By the time I wrote last week's eXtensions article, I was enjoying the new Mac so much that Plan B was hatched and I moved everything to the 2016 MacBook Pro.

I spent all that day and part of Thursday catching up. Apps were being updated too, taking advantage of some of the new features. On Thursday, I was still finding out what was new and where some features had been hidden.
