Christmas Adverts 2018

Christmas Adverts 2018

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 Special Event October 2018

 Apple Special Event October 2018

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!

 Apple iPhone XS Max Review

 Apple iPhone XS Max Review

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.
