This year at WWDC 2017 there is a few things to expect. MacBook upgrades, Siri Speaker, new iPads and software updates.

New iPad Pro

There will be a new iPad Pro for sure. There has been to many leaks for there not to be. The leaks and cases around the web have confirmed it will be a 10.5 inch iPad Pro, rocking the A10 chip, quite possibly a A10X chip with some function that is only valid with that iPad and won’t work with other iPads in the line-up, marketing at its best ha! Obviously it will have the Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold colours as all the rest do, well possibly no rose gold as the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, iPad or iPad Mini 4 doesn’t have it, so we shall see. There might be a few design tweaks and such, but more to follow on Monday when WWDC happens.

New MacBooks

I wouldn’t say ‘new’ MacBooks for this one to be honest as it will just be upgrades mainly, if you class that as new, then good for you. The MacBook range, I’m pretty sure all of them will get the Kaby Lake chips from Intel this time around. When these are released Intel are already working or have released new chips once again. So, people will probably complain that these chips are a generation behind when they have no idea what they do. The one I’m most interested in is the MacBook Air if it gets a retina display, processor update and keeps the keyboard in there, if they go the Core M or whatever route for the processor and incarnate the new keyboard they use then I shan’t be a fan. I don’t like the clicky keyboard on the MacBook or the MacBook Pro for that matter, even know the Pro has a second gen butterfly switch, I still don’t like it, I prefer traction, then I can make sure the key has been pressed, although I can see it coming, time will tell.

UK Mail have been around for some time and do what they can, but their best is not good enough.

I have worked for companies who use UK Mail as their delivery service and continue to use them because for the simple reason is that they are cheap. UK Mail work for minimum wage, they take minimum payment contracts with providers and that’s how they stay in business.

It seems that they have stooped to a new low as every time I hear or read someone is speaking badly of UK Mail, there is nothing good to say about them and that’s something they need to address.

People don’t really have control if UK Mail delivers their items, this is down to the company who is using them, the location the package is getting delivered to etc.

Here are a few random tweets from people who are complaining of UK Mail. I couldn’t find any tweets where people had said they did a good job.

I’m back to iOS!

So I’m back using an iPhone. I couldn’t deal with the crappy slow phones, I thought I could, maybe save a little money, or not need it that much, but the fact is, I can’t.

The reasons I can’t are basically the speed of the phone and the lack of Apps on other platforms. Don’t get me wrong, android is totally fine, but apps run so much smoother on iOS, it’s a damn fact.

Lets take Snapchat for example. Snapchat runs perfectly well on both high spec android phones and iPhones. However there is one drawback.

Drama is in everyone’s life, don’t get me wrong. There is a few people I don’t speak to anymore because there is too much drama in the silly lives they led. I can safely say I don’t have any drama in my life at all. Reason for this is, I don’t give a fuck about what people think or to try to annoy me. People will annoy me yes, but only for the amount of time I’m speaking to them, I don’t let the words they speak bother thereafter.

Most people get caught up and let shit bother them, to me this just means that the other person is in control of your emotions, or better yet, controlling your emotions. Emotions are a silly human thing, but we all have them from hate, love, anger, stress, jealousy etc. But I believe you can control these emotions with enough time and patience. Most people don’t do this, they rely on help from others, advise, medicine, to be shown how to control them or talk about them I suppose.

So I figured I need a new PC Build and this is some of the stuff I went for. I was going to kit out everything but I honestly didn’t feel the need too.

Have you got an amazing PC Build? Feel free to post your specs in the comments below.

At the time of writing this post my internet has been down for 30 minutes and I feel like it’s the end of the world.. Well for most people anyway!

I am with Virgin Media for my internet and its pretty amazing, the speeds are ridiculous and there is hardly any downtime. I can live with my 4G until it gets back online, they must be upgrading something, or working out some kinks and I totally understand.

People in my area who are on Virgin Media connections are probably so pissed right now, they don’t have 4G or even a smart phone for that matter!

So I got a new iPhone 6s, which is great. I figured I will add my card to this so I can save myself time when paying for shit at places that have contactless payment or support Apple Pay. I tried adding my card, and it said ‘This card isn’t issued by your bank’, I figured that’s weird.. According to the Apple site Ulster Bank is supported.

I was thinking it had something to do with Ulster Bank just being shit as normal. So when I got the chance because I work silly hours I headed down to my local branch. Previously before heading to my bank I gave them or a call centre agent, to enquire as to why my card isn’t allowing me to add it to Apple Pay. The guy didn’t really have a clue and stuck me on hold twice to find out why it wouldn’t add. Fair enough, he might be new or just didn’t have a clue as to why it wouldn’t be working, regardless! He came back after having me on hold for a bit and says I need a contactless card. It doesn’t mention that on Apple site or their own site, well from what i can see anyway, but whatever. The guy on the phone said you have to go to your local branch to your local branch to apply for a contactless card. Fair enough, wasn’t going to be to much hassle as my local branch is around 20 minutes away from me, so not bad.

I ended up getting a job that paid a steady wage because as most web devs know it sometimes isn’t always steady and that was something i couldn’t rely on.

So i ended up getting a job selling phones to people that don’t have a clue about them. Never good when you are trying to explain how said phone will benefit them over their old one. But that’s how it goes.

Anyway, just on to write that i have been trying to get back into the swing of the web dev side of things and i think im gonna try to concentrate on it a little more. HTML/CSS has came a long way since i was writing it. What your able to do with HTML5/CSS3 is fucking crazy. I suppose its all down to the browsers that render out the little animations and stuff like that, but to write the code and understand it is pretty cool. Could concentrate solely on a mobile version of something so its only accessible on mobile, and have a splash to say ‘This website is only available on mobile’, i think that’s how all this will start going, given the fact that more people use mobiles and tablets than they do computers these days.

Well just a short post to get that off my mind.

So you show people that you are dedicated and that you are willing to do anything that needs to be done. Many people see dedication as a good thing, but sometimes your hard work and dedication to something doesn’t always have a positive outcome. Let me explain…

Dedication comes in many forms, some small portions some that just blow everything and everyone out of the water. Many people like to put in a little time and effort and be happy whilst doing so. Others like to do as much as they can to the point where it might put them under a lot of stress and fuck with they’re emotions. For the people that put in just the right amount live happy and see that they are changing things, doing things different to have a positive outcome. Others love to show people what they can really do, so they go to the ends of the earth to show someone that what they do matters, and without them it wouldn’t get done in the same fashion.

People who see hard work and dedication from someone, they either think.
