Since Philip Hinchcliffe came back to do stories with Big Finish I’ve been really impressed with the results. So I was truly looking forward to hearing this latest story. I started it off and was quite interested to begin with although I did find the story a little formulaic. In fact the whole of the first episode was a little disappointing. At this point I was a bit worried about the story and if it would indeed live up to expectations.
But it was around the mid-point of the story that it felt like it had really turned and was just like the rest of the Hinchcliffe stories, which are excellent.
I’m pleased that i was wrong about this story, I’m glad that it turned out ok and wasn’t a dud. That would be terrible.
NinerPaint was a totally amazing app for Palm OS. It was one of the best Palm OS apps around. Now it’s coming to iOS, and, it’s coming back to Palm OS as well. This is brilliant news. As soon as it’s available I’ll let you know.
I’m always after useful sites for iOS apps and automation, so it was good to find this site called ‘the sweet setup‘ which has some good recommendations for apps, many of which I found I was already using. It’s always nice to have your suspicions confirmed.
It’s been an age since I used my molecule synth, and I was surprised to find that it actually still powered up too. It powered by batteries, 9 volt PP3 batteries, and they all still work. That’s quite impressive.
Anyway, it’s good to get back to it and experiment with it a bit again. It feels like there’s a lot more to experiment with too. So expect some more on this soon.
As you probably know I’m a fan of Big Finish. Sure, not everything that they do is brilliant, but a great deal of it is. I was really impressed with their rendition of The Invisible Man with John Hurt and really looking forward to this. Now it’s out. I haven’t listening to it as yet, but I love the story and I hope that they do it justice.
I backed this app on Kickstarter and had a lot of trouble with the beta, but the latest version seems good and the display on the Pebble is pretty good. Now all I need to get it to do is work with Spotify. I haven’t really tried as yet, and I’m hoping it won’t be too difficult.
Pebble’s latest iOS app (and I guess Android as well), removes the Pebble watch reliance on Pebble’s servers and means that the device can last a lot longer than the end of 2017, or at least that’s how it seems.
I’m still hopeful that someone else will bring out a real alternative firmware for Pebble soon. I’m hoping that Rebble will do something, but there’s been no update on their site since the end of January. There will certainly be enough Pebble users to make it worth their while, or at least I would imagine so. I’d happily pay for something new from them.
