Update on 19th Nov 2020 With the many reviews coming from third parties including The Verge, CNET & MKBHD, the Apple Silicon Mac computers seem to be living up to the promises made by Apple on stage. That’s great news. Many software developers (big firms and open-source) like Microsoft Office, Google Chrome, Tensorflow have been posting about their support for Apple Silicon, this is unprecedented for a new CPU architecture. Apple Silicon seems to be marking the beginning of the end of Intel’s x86 on desktop computing. The original post published on 10th Nov 2020: I know it is a…

I had been looking for a microphone that can record clear audio with noise reduction. I wanted one that I can connect to my laptop, to be used for video calls and webinars. Good quality microphones don’t come cheap, so it will be great if the same could be used with my iPad Pro or Samsung Phone for recording videos capturing crisp audio.

Compare this with iPhone 11 and all other higher models including iPhone 11 Pro or iMac computers…

It is not without its faults. I realised there are two useless (for me) features in #iPadOS and #iPad: 1) The multi-windows support and the gestures needed to get it working (I have 25+ years of experience working with GUI, an experienced programmer, yet I needed to watch 3 YouTube videos to learn…

This post is about a simple tip. In my new iPad Pro 11″, after I upgraded to latest iOS 12.3, updated all the installed apps, I was facing a weird problem. Six default apps from Apple were not getting updated. Every time I press Update or Update All, the process will start and stop with no progress. I searched in Apple support, the suggested solutions were to restart the device, to uninstall and to reinstall the app – nothing worked. The apps that were not getting updated were Apple Store, Numbers, Pages, Clips, iTunes U and iMovie – some of…
