    Apple AirPods Pro

    For two years I have been using an iPad Pro 11″, and for the last year I have had an iPhone 12 Pro (I should write about it soon), but I had not bought any AirPods so far. I considered AirPods to be priced exorbitantly (which they still are) for no obvious benefits over competition other than the fruit logo that’s on top of them. Over the last few years, I have bought a ton of low to mid-priced Bluetooth headsets from manufacturers including Sony, Jabra, Soundcore, OnePlus and others (The good and the bad of the 10 Bluetooth headsets I bought). My thought was to spend Rs 2000 (USD…

    Apple M1Pro and M1Max are a bigger deal than M1

    With M1Pro and M1max Apple has made it clear they are the top dogs when it comes to professional computer chips too. I find these chips to be more impressive than M1 which came out last year, that I called to be momentous, an assessment that still stands. Apple has shown they have a plan to keep up the pace, and a long runaway ahead. It will be lazy to see M1Max as a threat only to #Intel & #Microsoft, which sure is. It is #Samsung & #NVIDIA who are more paranoid with the technology (they know how to compete with Apple) powering M1 SoCs. They know complacency will destroy…

    Using Windows Sticky notes in iPhone & iPad

    I found a neat tip for #iPhone & #iPad if you are also using the OneNote/Sticky Notes app in Windows. Add #Outlook or #Hotmail in the iOS accounts & enable Notes. Now, you can use the Apple #Notes app to access the same notes that you have in Windows and Outlook.com.

    Apple Silicon iMac 24 Unboxing

    Recently, I bought from Apple India’s website, an M1 Chip iMac 24 inches blue colour for my father-in-law. I looked for an all-in-one computer that will be easy for him to use, with no cumbersome wires or setup. His usage will be limited to video calls over Zoom & Microsoft Teams, so it was important the device had a bright display, HD camera, loudspeakers and a microphone that captures clear speech. Apple iMac fitted the requirement. The reason I spent a premium over a Windows All-in-One PC was that he regularly uses his iPad, had tried a friend’s MacBook a few times and felt comfortable with it; also, his office…

    Ted Lasso (TV Series)

    I didn’t think I will like a TV show about Football, one of the many games I have hardly watched, but after starting to see Ted Lasso on Apple TV +, I had to binge-watch the entire season 1 in two days. It was that good. Jason Sudeikis has done the title role of Ted Lasso very well; it was a delight to watch him. It had all the right ingredients for a TV series: an underdog sports team, a bit of British humour, and inspiring but down-to-earth coach who has absolutely no idea on the game he is coaching, one divorced couple, another divorcing, a broken relationship which leads…
