Topics I've Started
07 March 2013 - 08:22 AMMorning all,
Thought I'd jump on here bright and early to let you know about a sale happening today at Melbourne Central. I know not everyone is based here, but if you have friends or family in the area you might want to pass this on.
Bag design company My Best Friend Is A Bag (best name ever) is hosting a sale on their MacBook and iPad sleeves. cases and bags today, as part of he Little Black Dress Project for L'Oreal Fashion Week.They're offering up to 60% discounts, kicking off today until Tuesday next week and they'll be situated on the 2nd floor cross-over in the Community Garden.
They're not promoting it heavily, more of a 'friends and family' set up, which of course we all are here on the forums.
The designs are mostly for women, so there might be some nice gift options to check out. We recently posted a gadget guide featuring their leather laptop sleeves here.
26 February 2013 - 03:55 PMHi all, hope you're having a great day - after virtually swimming into the office this morning amid torrential rain, the sun is finally out! Although my shoes are still squelching...
The reason for today's post is to let you know about a photo competition that we'll be introducing to the website and the magazine in the coming weeks. Perhaps some of you remember it from touch - iSnap is an iOS photography competition that is open to anyone to submit their favourite shots taken on an iDevice. We'll be featuring these in an online gallery, from which we will pick a monthly winner who gets a super-duper prize, in addition to being featured in print.
We're still getting this set up to go online, so I thought I'd put out the word that I'm scouting for cool photos from those of you who have them lurking in your Camera Roll, or archived on the desktop.
I've already made contact with some of you to potentially use your submissions sent earlier for touch, so anyone else who wants to join in please do!
Send your images to: firstname.lastname@example.org

18 February 2013 - 10:44 AMDropping in to draw your attention to a fantastic photo feature we posted on the site this morning entitled 'Abandoned Apples'. The premise of the piece is unearthing old and forgotten technologist left behind in vacant, dust-gathering environments. Here you'll see everything from decay, smashed screens and shredded materials.
The photos are phenomenal and the sentiment of revisiting what has been left behind makes for a great read.
Part 1 is up on the site today, with Part 2 on its way and scheduled for tomorrow.
14 February 2013 - 12:44 PMYikes, it seems Apple Maps is having a hard time keeping its data straight. This week, the Victorian Country Fire Authority has blamed Apple for inaccuracies with its FireReady bushfire application. According to a report by national newspaper The Age, the CFA’s bushfire information app for iPhone and iPad – which uses Apple Maps data – is displaying inaccurate locations for several Victorian townships, including Macedon.
Which, similar to the incidents of motorists being misled and left stranded en route to Mildura, is pointing to some serious flaws in the accuracy with Apple's application.
And, like the mishaps before it, you can only hope this latest issue doesn't cause an accident.
