HTC goes One better

I had the HTC One previously and loved it, it was the best phone I had ever owned. When the One Max was announced I knew immediately that I wanted one. I take and edit a lot of photos on my phone and often got frustrated at the size of the screen for viewing and editing…

What does mAh really mean?

This article draws an analogy between electricity flow and water flow; the analogy holds up quite well, as far as I’ve taken it… but take it any further and it starts to fall apart. It is not intended to be a description of how electricity actually works; it’s simply an analogy which helps convey some of the ideas involved.

Windows Phone 8 and Macs.

I’m forever going to be a Mac, never a PC. But today I discovered that being a Mac gives you unneeded issues when it comes to connecting a Windows Phone to the iOS software. I spent literally hours today trying to figure out how to sync my new 8X to my Mac, just so I could put some new music on my phone. It was a long haul, but I finally got there! So, instead of just “buying a real computer”, (thanks Craig! ;)), I figured I should share my new found knowledge with you guys so it helps anyone else out with a Mac that may encounter the same issues I had!
