Just splashed out on a 42mm Gold Edition Apple Watch at a cool £8,000? Happy? Well, you could have had an even bigger golden beast, a monstrous 55mm of it, for a mere twenty quid. In fact, you could have 400 of them. Enter the RoHS Gold Edition direct from China. A friend in Greece ordered this at a cost of €29 plus €3 shipping. What a bargain.
Twice in the past few months I’ve written about Apple Notes. First, I recounted how I had successful transferred all my Evernote files over to Notes and that all had gone well. Well, it went downhill from there. First I noticed some slowness in Notes. Then I realised that every time I opened the application on the iPhone there would be a delay of over a minute before I could start a new note or search for an existing item.
I'VE ALWAYS hated the locking of mobile phones to one carrier. Sure, in many countries, particularly the UK, locked phones supplied under a contract can be extremely cheap. And unlocking of the average phone is simple and costs peanuts; so there are some arguments in favour of locking.
Since last week’s announcement of the new iPad Pro and the 4in-screen iPhone SE I have been entertaining treasonous thoughts. Should I sideline the iPhone 6 Plus (which is sometimes a tight fit in my pocket) and move over to a smaller phone and then combine it with an iPad?
After spending months vacillating between the tiny new MacBook and the more traditional and speedy 13in MacBook Pro with retina screen, I have reached a conclusion. Last week I bought the MacBook for test purposes, confident that if I didn't like it I could return it for cash or part exchange.

My new iPad Air 2 has been rather neglected, so much do I cleave to the remarkable iPhone 6 Plus. I have been carrying the iPhone around for the past five months and enjoying treating it as a mini tablet. As a result, I haven't been moved to take up the Air 2. Last week, however, I took Big Brother on train to Wigan Pier with the intention of doing some creative writing.
