Over the past 3 months I have been trialling a Google Pixel Phone. I’m not sure why. I started getting attracted to the Google apps on my iPhone. I found myself using Google Inbox for my email, Google Play for my music, and the Google calendar app instead of Apple’s calendar app. So when Google released their Pixel phone I took the plunge and purchased one to see if it would play nicely with Apple. It’s been a challenging a few months because I can’t get myself back onto my iPhone. I’ve tried three times and I simply cannot go back to the iPhone. The Pixel is a great phone and it works very well with OS X. Google have really nailed the cross-platform syncing. In fact, when it comes to music and photos it syncs more easily with OS X than the iPhone does. So this article is not really a review of the Pixel phone. This my experience transitioning from iPhone to Pixel phone.
My new Apple Airpods arrived a week ago. I must say they are a bold piece of hardware and they have evoked very strong emotions of love and hate within me.

In this article I reviewed 3 bluetooth headsets for audio quality: the Motorola Roadster Pro, the Parrot Neo HD and the Jabra Freeway. I didn’t like any of them. They sounded fine to the driver of the car but the driver’s voice sounded bad to the person on the other end of the phone.
Since then I have been trying them on the road and it’s been a little different.
In real life there is a clear winner: the Motorola Roadster Pro.
I’ve made a little video so you can see how good it sounds!

Does anyone know of a photo app for mac that will show you a preview of what your file will look like after it is saved?
I want to write an article on how to save an image to use on a webpage…
Check this out… the SanDisk ‘Crizer FIT’ thumbdrive.
I searched for ‘world’s smallest USB thumbdrive’ on Google and then ordered 3 different brands from Ebay. This one by Sandisk was the best. All three worked, the differences are in the moulding, and the problem is how to attach them to your keyring (which you pretty much need to do so you don’t lose it!)
Aa good storage system for IDEAS is essential.
Today the iPhone companion app for my fav desktop notes app – SOHO notes was released.
Like any other area of interest on the iPhone, when it comes to the Bible there are thousands of applications out there but the new kid on the block the ‘ESV Bible‘ is easily the best and here’s why…
