Here's a little problem, I have a new Mac Book Pro, with a 1T drive, yet I am heading into disk space problems, some I can handle as the files in question are in Drop box and I can hide these away, but they are not seen, not a realy good idea, but it helps, a lot are or have been transfered to Gogle Drive, this does not impact on my hard drive and is very quickly becoming my main means of letter or document creation.

My music store, which is not considerable, but large enough to satisfy me is stored on iCloud, but I have transferred it all to Google Music, simply because I like the interface, and don't get the old machine problem, which I have just gone through with my new Mac.
Next is my movies, and when you look at the disk space used, its a large if not most significant part of my file storage.

I want to transfer it to the iCloud, but it seems its not possible, and if I want to transfer it to google it seem the copy protection stops this happening. I can't even store it on an external drive, so I am stuck with movies I have paid for and downloaded from Apple, blocking a large portion of my drive,,,,,,,,

Computers are taking our industry to new levels of drawing and sharing, but let's not forget the simple basics
In the computers age when everything is digital and made with purpose of making the work easier, we still admire the hand drawings and hand made sketches of the architects. The pencils and colors, ruler and rubber were the main tools in the past while an architect was designing.

following up on my purchase of Bauhaus, I purchased the book by Magdalena Droste, which was not hard to devour in a single read, but thirsty for more I have started to look else where and this page came up quite early on, 
The Bauhaus was the most influential modernist art school of the 20th century, one whose approach to teaching, and understanding art's relationship to society and technology, had a major impact both in Europe and the United States...

So fed up trying to handle gmail on a mac, with a mac diary and address book, so decided that its all or nothing, so diary is now google, and so is my address book, although need to keep the mac address book updated for phone calls, so I will use the free version of Fullcontact  to sync my various address books, seems to work well so far.
Keep all your contacts in one place and automatically up-to-date. Try our contact management app and stop fighting your address book.

No is the answer, in the UK I get loads more free on both types of free view I pay about £5/ month for Netflix I get Amazon prime for about £35/ year and over £60 for sky all available channels, movies, the free stuff and sports, I no longer wait for the time slot to watch specific programs, I record and watch when I want.
Plus I watch TNT twig and triangulation on the iPad plus youtube specific channels. The BBC is my main news channel plus Twitter. Apple is late to the game
 
Would you pay $40 per month for an Apple TV service?

Apple plans to offer a bundle of about 25 TV channels this fall in a service that would compete directly with cable TV companies, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The offering would be anchored by ABC, CBS and Fox and would be available on all Apple devices, including the Apple TV. The service is expected to cost between $30 and $40 per month.

Would you pay this price for an Apple TV service?

Apple is always late to the game these days, but their "fans" will hand over their money no matter what.

Next came this, Diagram for the structure of teaching by I think Walter Gropius, I can't seem to get this out of my mind, can I update it in any way, or apply it to my Architectural Technologist course lectures

This seems to be an interesting approach of teaching strategy.

As I believe in a thorough research of background knowledge in Building technology and the materials brings out an ideal Building Structure. To achieve that sort of underpinning knowledge you require minimum of four consecutive years like it has been represented pictorially.  

I am sure it would be great benefit for students like us. Adding an infuence of this method to your AT lectures which is already having an excellent quality would enhance the outcome much more effectively.

Just purchased a new,,, well second hand book on the Bauhaus 1919 - 1933 by Magdalena Droste, excellent, but the previous owner, bless him or her, has outlined a lot of passages in ink lines,,,,, but looking past this, its an excellent book.
The wiki article is also required reading to lay foundation

It looks very interesting to know that is how modern architecture influences and improvisations began. I was reading the article on wikipedia about it, Thank you for sharing.
