From Evernote to OneNote 

I’ve been a loyal Evernote premium users since April 2008. I’ve always loved the company. But sadly not anymore. Their new 2 device only pricing structure makes little sense to me. Finally Microsoft have released the Evernote exporter to OneNote. So I’m moving over. Fingers crossed the transition works. I’ll keep you posted. But until […]

Thoughts ahead of the iPhone 7 launch 

So it’s the Apple iPhone launch tomorrow, presumably to be labeled as ‘iPhone 7/plus’.  Expect to be told it’s the best iPhone yet. And expect to be told that the decision to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack is because Apple are by nature one of the most forward looking visionary technology companies in the world.  […]

Using the web overseas: a field guide

I have spent the last few years of my life overseas. Being a geek, I’ve always been fascinated by the technology that makes life abroad that bit more bearable. So I thought I’d share some of experiences of how I use technology overseas. This post focuses on using the web. A secure connection: Obvious – […]

I ditched Facebook

The biggest responsibility for geeks in an age of ubiquitous internet is to inform, educate and share with friends the importance of understanding online identity and privacy. The freedoms and foundation of the web we enjoy today are based on transparency and open standards. The most basic action of typing in a URL and visiting a web address through to […]

Welcome back Microsoft

Now I’ve always been a critic of Microsoft. But not critical of the nature of their business and market domination (that doesn’t bother me), but critical of their lack of innovation and, until Windows 7, their sub-par operating systems. With all the innovation, elegance and success of Apple it’s easy to dismiss the folks at […]

Running a podcast 20 shows on..

TandridgeRadio.com, the weekly podcast I set up with my friend and local journalist, Kevin Black is 20 shows old today. Hard to believe that the show has been running now since January this year. I can honestly say I find it some of the most satisfying and creative work I have ever done. Firstly, I […]
