A demo of my sit/stand desk

Regular readers (who are they?) will be aware that I have a desk that enables me to raise or lower it so I can use it in a traditional sitting or a standing position. This kind of thing is ideal for an accompanying video, so here it is!

I’ll be making a more detailed video about my desk at some point in the future. I’ll be talking in that about why I went for the solution demonstrated here and will mention other products that are on the market.

In the meantime, if you want to read my original blog post from July 2014 about why I decided to buy a sit/stand desk, you can do that here. You can also read about why I chose this desk here, although as that article was written nearly a year ago the second part to my video will update my conclusions in that blog. So watch this space for more!

An introduction to the Apple TV 4

The Apple TV 4 has recently launched and I’ve got my hands on one to review.

In this video I compare the specs of the new hardware with the Apple TV 3 and take a look at the new unit’s operating system: tvOS. I show installing an app, searching with the on-screen keyboard and built in voice command and briefly show Netflix and Plex apps in use.

Finally I sum up what I think of the Apple TV 4 and whether you should think about purchasing one.

I hope you enjoy the content. Please give it a thumbs up and, if you enjoyed the video, I’d be delighted if you subscribed to my channel.

Thanks for watching!

My first VLOG

Something I’ve wanted to do for a while is to VLOG as well as BLOG and this is my first attempt at the former.

I originally wanted to start my VLOG some time ago, however my iPhone 5s had a fault that meant that audio wouldn’t record when using the front facing “FaceTime” camera – the ideal one for VLOGing purposes.

My new iPhone 6s Plus, however, is fully working (I should hope so, I’ve only owned it for 3 weeks!) so I can now give VLOGing a go!

The above video was recorded during the first couple of weeks that I had my new iPhone and covers various subjects – a new bluetooth remote camera activation tool, a selfie stick, backing up my NAS to an external USB 3 hard drive and, most important of all these days, a look inside my fridge! You know it makes sense.

I hope you enjoy the video. Please give it a thumbs up on “the YouTubes” and don’t forget to subscribe if you want to see more content like it. Although goodness knows why you’d want to.
