Why I think Apple's Numbers is more powerful than people believe

12 Jul 2020 3 minute read comments lowededwookie

When it comes to spreadsheets Excel is king. When Apple released iWorks people bemoaned Numbers' lack of all sorts of things. Numbers has had a lot of work done to it and I feel the idea that Numbers is worse than Excel is not a fair one. The two app...

Keeping track

12 Jul 2020 2 minute read comments lowededwookie

I decided to start using a spreadsheet to keep track of my meagre cryptos that I've earned from Publish0x, Brave, SteemIt, Hive, etc. Like I say I've got stuff all crypto but after a couple of weeks ago I've lost about $80(NZD) due to an Atomic Walle...

What's the haps on the postie front?

It's been a while since I've posted anything in this blog. The truth is it's been pretty quiet. New Zealand's COVID-19 response has been amazing and we've stopped all community transfers. Unfortunately it was marred by idiots coming in from overseas...

Why I'm a Mac user

7 Jul 2020 6 minute read comments lowededwookie

It's pretty easy to pass off Mac users as sheep entrenched in the cult of Apple but that's, at least in my case, not the reality. For this post to make any real sense you need to know my background and to understand this I'm going to post this video...

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

Twitter is bollocks. My postie account got suspended because Twitter's algorithms determined that my account was spamming due to use of coronavirus and covid19 tags. This is the problem with algorithms because if the sodding thing had read my posts t...

Wallet challenge

30 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

After my previous post (Well that was fun) I've decided I need a new wallet. The problem is that I'm having trouble finding one that meets my needs. I need a wallet that does all of this: Mac client iOS client Steem support Hive support Loopring sup...

Well that was fun.

Atomic Wallet is pretty much a failed experiment now. I've been turned right off it. It started out with an issue where I couldn't work out the wording of the interface. It seems like a drunkard had developed it. Anyone with any ounce of intelligenc...

If you think Apple isn't open then watch this

30 Jun 2020 1 minute read comments lowededwookie

Full interview It feels like I've done nothing recently but flogging a dead horse. The open source commenters here love to say that Apple doesn't care about your privacy and that it's nothing more than a marketing gimmick. So now the dead horse is g...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Quick question... Are these two statements the same? I hate Apple because I don't trust it and I hate black people because I don't trust them If you said "No" then buckle up because it's going to be a bumpy ride. Both of these are statements of p...

Why anti-Apple rhetoric is wrong

28 Jun 2020 9 minute read comments lowededwookie

So the other day I wrote a post called Do people really want privacy? I wanted to try and explain to people why ignoring Apple is a bad idea if you make the claim that you value privacy so much. I looked at what Apple is currently doing and what Appl...
