“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

I bought myself an Apple wireless keyboard a few weeks ago in preparation for the day when my twenty-plus year-old mechanical, “clicky” keyboard (an Amstrad IBM Model M knock-off) eventually gives up the ghost. The Apple is mechanical too, though … Continue reading
With the iPhone 5s on its way, here’s a list of things that I think are still wrong with the iPhone, based on about a year-and-a-half of heavy iPhone 4s usage: The old metal edges were pointlessly slippery, but at … Continue reading
.tek: Woe, Woe and Thrice Woe: Installing Windows on a Late 2012 Model Mac Mini With Boot Camp #tech #apple
Apple hardware running as it was meant to: with DOS(Box)! Norton Commander: …AND Gabriel Knight: I bought the cheapest Mac Mini from PC World a few days ago to replace my horribly underpowered, top-of-the-range HP NetBook. And (shock-horror), the thing … Continue reading
I downloaded and tested the new Google Maps for IOS against Apple’s own Maps app and, guess what? (Ironic fanfare etc…), they both still suck. Mightily. Of course, presumably unlike my richer and fatter (metaphorically speaking guys- don’t get your … Continue reading

Busy again, just a photo posting (smalls pics here linked to hi-res pics on my Flickr page). Mum, dad and me at the recent Skyfall Indpedendent/Matinal event at Bagatelle and what the hell is wrong with my teeth? (NB/ Thanks … Continue reading

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite – Problems with an unevenly lighted display. Reported at CNet and Techcrunch. IOS 6 and 6.0.1 – WiFi-connection problems, though honestly WiFi problems have been a free feature of my iPad2 and iPhone 4S since IOS 4.3.3. … Continue reading

Hasn’t it been such a long, long time since we talked tech toys? Remember that Teddy Roosevelt quote about walking “softly with a big stick”? Today I think the “softly” part needs to be dropped and this week I’m striding … Continue reading
Easily digestible review for the ADHD challenged: Waze app (IOS) – Tested route from Cartersmead Close in Horley to B&Q Crawley (UK). Pros: Easy to find route, gives alternatives, spoken turn-by-turn fine, no stupid Mr.Bean UK Siri voice. Free! Cons: … Continue reading
Just snagged this on sale at Tescos for £6.97 today. It’s a passive amplifier/stand for the iPhone 4/4s. Griffin make some amazing and ridiculously grandiose claims on their web site about how the thing “is based on some very advanced … Continue reading
Just a little while ago Apple released their latest and greatest tablet, they’re simply calling it “the new iPad”. As usual the news will be greeted with the usual rabid fanaticism by Apple fans, but is it actually any good? … Continue reading
