A couple of quick comments on the news this morning:

Apple Predictions

New stuff.

See the rumours. Wait another 14 hours for the real stories.


Is anyone in charge at Waterloo? Has anyone ever been in charge. Heads in the sand when the iPhone arrived (either that or corporate arrogance); a tablet that wouldn't do email and needed a phone nearby; and after several years of rumours, two botched launches of BBM: the messenger app. It was out and withdrawn last month. With the real release today (maybe) there is a waiting list for activation.

The difference, we are told, between writing fact or novels, is that a novel has to make sense.

I can hardly wait for my iPhone 5s which is to be released in Thailand at the end of this week.

And if Mavericks is released this week, look out for my rewritten A - Z on System Preferences
