Fantastic way to get words out of your imagination to the page. Save your wrists and hands from RSI problems by using dictation instead of the keyboard.

Fastest and best way to do any sort of writing. Talk to your computer and have it do the work for you instead if injuring yourself. It's possible on iOS as well as on desktop computers.

Just wished my mum a happy birthday. Was able to do it using FaceTime and it's like living in the future be able to use a video phone. The old girl is 78 today and enjoying technology with her iPhone and iPad and that's why we call her TechnoGran. I also gave her a demonstration of the echo dot. I had to buy it from the UK using my mum's address because it's not available yet here in Spain.

I'm really pleased with the Amazon echo Dot, it's an amazing piece of kit. I actually enjoy using it more than using Siri. The fact that it's always listing and I don't have to press any buttons is a big plus. With Siri I have to get the phone out or I have to lift my arm up in order to talk to the watch. Alexa is able to do just as much if not more than Siri does.

Pleased to see the macOS 10.12.2 is ready to download and install. I've alread updated the Phone and the iPads. Just the Macs and my wife's iPhone to be completely updated. Always best to update seeing as there is such a lot of malwhere out there and besides we get new emojis....

I see Apple Pay is now in Spain. Not with my bank - La Caixa, yet. Looking forward to seeing it in action.

Some artistic licence may have been taken – As you do! In any case, I think my picture captures the feeling of being upon that windy hill in Ireland last week.

Today I have to decide where I'm going to put the three extra Philips Hue light bulbs. A little bit more home automation!

I initially just got the Elgato Eve switch and Power for the home automation capabilities. I've been delighted to find out I can also track the power usage of the appliances I have connected.

I already have the Elgato Eve door and window switches and a motion detector. At a later stage I think I will add the weather sensor and an indoor sensor. Once you get started with automating the home and adding home security features it gets addictive. I've also added two cameras which will be superseded by HomeKit cameras as soon as HomeKit cameras are available.

The Renoir Paintings I'm going to see are from a couple of Galleries in Paris. I'm hoping there are a good selection of paintings in there.
