Hallelujah! The day has arrived when I can finally show off my Apple Watch. In Canada. Using a Visa card. Or Debit Card. And Apple Pay. Read the rest of this entry

We are a couple of weeks in since Apple held its “Hey Siri” event in the grand city of San Francisco.
And, since then, the stars have perfectly aligned in the creation of Apple’s newest iPhone – the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. I am so happy that I waited until my contract played out because, if I owned the Phone 6 right now, I would have been seriously – well – not happy! Read the rest of this entry

It will be a Year to the Day and Minute when Apple hosts it’s huge event on Wednesday, September 9th at 10:00 AM Pacific in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
And for the first time in forever, I will be away from my virtual desk and cannot live blog the event. How can this be? Poor planning on my part – or multi- tasking which clearly went out of my control.
However, you can watch the event on Apple.Com or stream it via your Apple TV.
And, speaking of Apple TV, get ready to be dazzled by an all-new, Siri-enabled Apple TV, one which will take your entertainment preferences to the next level. Or next several levels. And, if we believe the rumours, this new Apple TV will come equipped with a new remote and Siri capability which will make surfing for shows, music, gaming etc. incredibly easy and seamless.
Also, set for the grand unveiling is the new IPhone, iPad Pro and Watch OS2. Additionally, the availability of iOS 9 and OS X update El Capitan will be revealed.
Apparently, the new phone will be named iPhone 6 S. Again with the “S”. What does this S stand for? $$$$$$? Or is it a tribute to Apple Co-Founder and CEO, the late Steve Jobs. Please enlighten me Apple or somebody out in the blogosphere hit the comments below and have your say. I am confused!
And if, like me, you cannot watch the event in real time – oh my goodness, I am dying inside just saying these words – you can stream it later on by clicking on Apple.Com or the Apple Event App on your Apple TV.
Poor Apple TV 3 – the September 9th Event will quite possibly be one of the last things I view on it. I will be all over that new Apple TV unit and handing over its pre-decessor to family members.
If you are watching live, feel free to jump in and add updates in the comments section below.
Okay, let’s try this again, shall we?
A couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 8.0.1 to “fix” the bugs that crashed the party known as iOS 8.0.
Well, it appears that the iOS 8.0.1 was a regifter or something because chaos reigned the day when Apple consumers downloaded the software.
Owners of the newly released iPhone 6 and 6 Plus discovered that, after downloading iOS 8.0.1, their phone couldn’t connect to their Cellular Service and Touch ID was disabled. Good times.
So, this evening iOS 8.0.2 has been released to deal with these embarrassing issues. Here are the details:
“This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Fixes a bug so HealthKit apps can now be made available on the App Store
Addresses an issue where 3rd party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode
Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library
Improves the reliability of the Reachability feature on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Fixes an issue that could cause unexpected cellular data usage when receiving SMS/MMS messages
Better support of Ask To Buy for Family Sharing for In-App Purchases
Fixes an issue where ringtones were sometimes not restored from iCloud backups
Fixes a bug that prevented uploading photos and videos from Safari”
Let us know how you do? And I will as well. If you never hear from me again, it is because I have thrown my iDevices out the window. Ha!

O! M! G! Have you heard? The iPhone 6 has the capability to bend. Yes bend.
Take that Samsung and your curved TV screens!
I, personally, love the idea of folding this iPhone and placing it in my pocket or purse. I mean – isn’t this a glimpse into the future? Why is it okay for TV screens to bend and not a phone? I am confused.
Okay, all humour aside! What is the big deal here? What did you think was going to happen with these thin phones? The thinner anything is, the easier it bends. Well, almost anything. A thin piece of ice melts, so thank Heavens iPhone 6 customers are not experiencing this with their phones. Nothing more maddening than a phone that disappears.
I don’t know about the next guy or gal but the first thing I do when I purchase any iDevice is purchase a case. Yes, a case. A strong case. Like a Mophie case with extra battery life built in. This way your phone is protected and will have the support of additional battery juice. Hard to bend a phone with a strong casing adorning its figure.
And, if Mophie still hasn’t developed its new iPhone 6 cases when you read this, you can’t go wrong with Accessories Products on Apple.Com
Final alert: Do not drop your phone from a high altitude as this may cause your screen to break. Yes break! O! M! G! Glass breaks? (Sigh)
