    If you asked me a couple of months ago, this should have been a Surface Book or at least a Surface Pro 4 review. I replace my devices annually and I had planned on getting the new Surface Pro 4 as a replacement for my Surface Pro 3 and when the Surface Book arrived, I decided to change my order to a Surface Book.

    So what changed? Well, lets give you some of the history:

    I wrote a series of 3 articles on the Surface Pro 3 which I moved to as my work machine. I've been looking at stylus access ...

    Another year, another version of iOS. However, little did people think that another version of iOS would run on the iPad 2!

    Released in early 2011, The iPad 2 has had quite a remarkably long life. It was sold alongside the iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad Air before being finally discontinued in 2014. However it lived on as the up until recently sold iPad Mini 1, which is merely a miniaturised iPad 2.

    The iPad 2 also lives on in its installed base, it was the iPad with the highest usage base until quite recently, and despite being overtaken by the iPad Air, it still holds a respectable usage share for a 4 and a half year old tablet.

    In 2012, people started ...

    Hi all, just a quick update this afternoon.

    As you all probably know, iOS 9 will be out in the early hours of Thursday morning.

    In case anyone has forgotten, Apple's main focus in iOS 9 was across four key areas: Apps, The iPad Experience, Intelligence and 'Foundation'.

    In terms of apps, there are multiple improvements to the built in apps, with a much improved notes app and improvements to mail and ...

    Early this morning Apple held its 'Hey Siri, give us a hint' event. As the last minute rumours swirled, here in Australia those of us willing to sacrifice our sleep were waiting up for the live stream to start at 3am. We were treated to an interesting keynote focusing on the iPad, Apple TV and iPhone.

    The keynote started off on a different note this time. There was no time for Tim Cook's usual 'updates' on store openings and marketshare. Instead we were straight ...

    As I watch Apple announce the next version of iOS at every WWDC, I usually start trying to think how much useful each announced feature will be, and almost every year I overestimate the usefulness of certain features by the time the software is actually released. So with the release of iOS 9 just around the corner, I thought I'd look over what major iOS 8 features I thought I would use, and compared what I thought to how much I actually used them.

    Photos - New Tagging, Search and Editing features.

    When iOS 8 was announced, I doubted I would use any of these new photos features. I ...

    Leading us off are reports that the next Apple event will be held on ...

    Hi everyone. As some of you would know, SRG is on a break from the news desk with the birth of his daughter so I'm going to try and do the news until his return, so feedback is welcome, I'm not very good at this sort of thing.

    To start off today, I'll do a quick recap of the last couple of days, then I'll do morning news as I can.

    The 6th beta of Mac OS X El Capitan (Build ...

    Clearly the place to start today is the new range of iPods, which were released yesterday. An advantage in reporting on them today is that the tech sites have had a chance to play with them. The biggest update is to the iPod Touch, which sees a big processor jump and also an increase in its maximum size to a 128GB model. As you might expect now the device sports the same A8 chip as the iPhone ...

    Sorry to know that you can't get your data back. The trueth is that if the iphone can't stay on long enough, no recovery app will work to help. How about
