Still have the CD in my collection, bought... 25 years ago? For those who listened to Matt and John's radio shows - and then the Solid Steel show - on Kiss FM back in the day, this will bring back happy memories. This mix still stands up well against the subsequent Solid Steel mix albums, or the 20th Anniversary DVD that collected some of the best Solid Steel shows as MP3s.

I used to have a 3G-enabled iPad, which I took with me for my commute. More than a few times, I missed my train because I was engrossed in reading something on it! :o I still occasionally get caught up reading in bed first thing in the morning, but I'm working on that...

One thing that does annoy me is the way that apps beg you to let them send you notifications, with the only response being either "OK" or "don't allow". If you want to change the notification settings, you have to delve into the setting for each app individually. It would be great if you could have global settings for particular classes of app - that way, communication apps are still able to interrupt you for an incoming call or message, whilst other apps can be silenced and told not to interrupt.
Whilst at a concert last week, I had a quick look around at the audience of fellow music lovers and the majority of attendees all had one thing in common which was the inability to keep their

Adobe may have strengthened its creative presence on iOS devices, but I think that people should pay attention to the developing partnership between Adobe and Microsoft. It's a bold vision on display in this video, that's for sure!

My already low opinion of those responsible for the continued harassment of Anita Sarkeesian and other prominent women online went even further whilst watching this video. For the record, I was a backer of the "Tropes vs Women" Kickstarter campaign, and the work she has produced so far has been well worth the wait, in my opinion.

I read up on some of the harassment she endured, and holy shit.  No.  You don't do that to anybody.

Good news - Apple have issues patches to fix the Shellshock bug.

Not-so-good news - it doesn't appear to be available via Software Update yet. Manual downloads are available, however.

Bad news - if you're on Snow Leopard (10.6) or earlier, Apple isn't going to patch your system for you.

If you've an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you might want to avoid putting it in your front trouser pockets. (Thought I'd have to think it'd be a tight squeeze to start with!)
It's only a matter of time before pulling a bent iPhone 6 from your pocket becomes an innuendo for.. oh, you get the idea. Apple's new iPhone 6 Plus, which boasts an aluminum shell, for lightness, apparently

Considering the number of old black-and-white movie serials that inspired it, it's perhaps fitting that "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" should still look splendid when re-edited as a black-and-white silent movie. :)

On the face of it, this is poking fun at iPhone users - but it's also a poke at all those obsessed with their new toys, whatever brand. ;)
