We have a lot of great commercials during the holidays in the UK and I have compiled some of them here for you to watch. It seems more and more retailers are going all-out for Christmas with their advertising campaigns as the years go on. This year there is even an advert banned from airing on TV from Iceland and a Coca-Cola lookalike from Aldi. Enjoy!
Apple has recently produced and released an advert for the holiday season. The production that went into it is astonishing and Apple have released additional videos to show the creative process. The piece is created from hand-made sets, animation and colour work which is combined with music. Full Advert... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dJCroCMBPM Holiday - Share Your Gifts [...]
So I know I said I wasn't going to post about Apple for a while after five blog posts in September/October! How could I not speak about the new iPad Pro, MacBook Air and other announcements from their October Special Event in New York. I usually watch keynote presentations live (as they're usually 10am California time which is 6pm in the U.K.) however this one was 10am New York time, which at the moment is only 2pm in the U.K. (our clocks have changed back an hour before the USA's have). Nevertheless I watched it as soon as I got home from work. I am trying something different this week by posting my notes taken during the presentation! These are copied straight from my Notes app and I'll add comments underneath speaking about each point made. Hope you enjoy reading!
I visited London last week from 11th to 14th October to visit my friend Jade and watch Michael McIntyre's Big World Tour show in the O2. I travelled to London Paddington on Thursday morning by train and got there early afternoon. We stayed in a hotel near Lancaster Gate and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park and had a lovely stay.
So I have had my Apple Watch Series 4 for three weeks now and wanted to review it for my blog. I have posted a lot about Apple recently from the Special Event to iOS 12 and product reviews of the iPhone XS Max and now the Apple Watch Series 4. I promise that'll be it for a while as I'm all Apple'd out!
Unfortunately my MacBook Pro from Early 2011 is no longer upgradeable with Apple's new macOS releases. I am currently running macOS High Sierra but I have had the chance to use macOS Mojave in work on the iMac so can still post a quick review on it! I'll be covering a few of the features I use/like most in this post.
The iPhone XS and XS Max came out last Friday (21st September) and I upgraded my handset in Cardiff. I am on the iPhone Upgrade Program so pay a monthly fee to Barclays Partner Finance and basically lease the iPhone until a new one is released. I do this because I don't have to worry about selling the device after a year or two of use (which I used to do) and it is covered by AppleCare+ the entire time.
