    The iPhone 4: So far, so good

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 13/10/2010

    » I have had the new iPhone 4 in my hands for just over a week and have been getting used to its new features and superior performance. The iPhone 3G that I have been using for some 18 months now has served me well. While the white back has a somewhat matte finish these days, the glass is as clear and unmarked as the day it came out of the box. Instead of an expensive case, I just use an iPod sock, which the staff at iStudio found amusing. It works for me.

    If you need to get iLife, don't do it by mail

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 10/11/2010

    » I thought I had been smart by ordering iLife online as there were no copies in the shops, but I watched the online tracking as it remained at the airport for several days: Clearance delay. I checked with DHL on Thursday and was told that this was due to Customs. I think she meant with a large "C". I made a final check on Friday evening. I look forward to Apple's online software facility and downloading directly: no disks; no frustrating waits.

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 03/11/2010

    » It was a busy week for Apple last week with financial results and a "Back to the Mac" event. Both were reported in the Bangkok Post Business section and are well-covered online. We had a new iLife; Facetime for the Mac; a report on some features of OS X, 10.7, Lion, which incorporates technology from iOS (the iPhone system); and a Mac App store which will be online by January. Lion is due next Summer (

    A perfect relationship _ for a while

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 18/08/2010

    » Some may think that with all the Macs I have written about over the past few years, everything works perfectly. My own Macs have all behaved well. My first modern Mac, which I bought in early 2002, still performs sterling duty in the hands of a friend. After three years of great service from my 2.16Ghz MacBook Pro, it was an easy decision to move to the current 2.66Ghz version with the i7 processor.

    Apple's Magic Trackpad: installation and use

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 25/08/2010

    » In mid-July, while I had the Mac Mini in my hands, Apple released its Magic Trackpad. It struck me as the perfect device to go with the Mini. I am less happy with a mouse now as I am so used to notebook computers and their trackpads.

    Back on track with my beautiful machine

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 29/09/2010

    » My 15" MacBook Pro was returned to me a week after its 13" junior arrived. I was told that the hard disk had been replaced. I turned it on and left it running for the rest of the week. With no freezes during that time, I took it home at the end of the week along with the 13" MacBook Pro and the LaCie hard disk that the Time Machine backups are on and set to work, first erasing the hard disk, then installing OS X from new.

    MacBook Pro failure: Mac mini to the rescue

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 01/09/2010

    » A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the problems I had with my 2.66GHz MacBook Pro and how I had located the source of the problems and the freezes had ended. QuickTime, we thought, and a lot of Windows users nodded sagely. Not so fast.

    Choices concerning a dead MacBook Pro

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 08/09/2010

    » Problems with my 15" MacBook Pro began in late July. After four months of perfect behaviour, it began to freeze intermittently. Despite several attempts at repair, and a couple of glimmers of false hope, it finally died on me in the middle of August. I covered it in bubblewrap, took it to my office and waited for it to be collected. Two weeks have passed and it is still there. I am considering my options, both for the long term and the short term.
