What have you bought today - VOL 4

Just bought myself a new Logitech MX Keys keyboard to go with my MX Master 3 mouse. Some really well made and good looking kit. I cannot wait to see how it all goes compared to my cruddy old free Dell keyboard.

What you playing at the minute?

Well I finally plunged into the world of VR and bought myself an Oculus Quest 2 over the weekend and all I can say is WOW!! I have stayed away from the world of VR as thought it was mostly rubbish graphics on poor equipment etc etc. Well the weekend playing Population:One and The Walking Dead have c...

Well I have been doing a bit of match betting and earned myself a couple of grand. Takes a bit of effort but is non-risk unlike mug betting. Decided to use this to buy the brand new Wahoo KICKR V5. The best thing about this trainer is that it auto-calibrates which I love. As I have done very little ...

Why did you choose the rollers over a smart turbo trainer? I bought a Wahoo Kickr Snap which is the 'wheel on' variety. I used it for a while but fed up of having to pump the tyre up to a certain PSI and then riding it for 10 minutes to calibrate it before actually doing a ride. I managed to sell it...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog, I too have been lucky this year as I can work 100% from home and haven't been in to the office since mid-March. I actually quite enjoyed the first lockdown as without the 1 hour commute in the morning I was regularly riding 15 - 20 miles and the weather was good to. The absence of traffic...

New Alienware M15 - an ultrabook from Alienware?

I spend most of my time on the Ipad Pro at home. My desktop is so out of date now that I never bother to use it.

I have to say I really miss my old laptop gaming days. I just cannot get into gaming on the Xbox anymore. No games about that grab me and I prefer the mouse/keyboard interface anyway.

Mobile Phone

Well Imy tak on it so far is
    NO - Note 10 as the standard version has an inferior screen and no microsd
    NO - Note10+ - it is just too damn big!
    Probable - S10 as it is very close to S10+ but can also get a free Watch (to keep or sell)
    Possible - S10+ same as S10 with a few enhancements

Mobile Phone

OK so I have had the iphone X for 2 years now and am thinking of jumping ship to either an S10 or Note10. Preferably not the + models.

I am a bit out of the loop on Android at the moment. Is there much of a difference between the two on a practical level? DO I gain much by having the stylus etc?

Ahhh crap John. It seems we’re all having some bad cycling luck. At least your issue is known and being sorted now.

I didn’t get to do the ride in the end. Shortly after I wrote the above I injured both knees playing football. Not drastically, but enough so that I could not train for weeks. As time was already short I decided not to proceed this year. Been taking a break from cycling the last few weeks and been b...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Went to see Yesterday with my wife last night. A typical Richard Curtis type affair. A happy go lucky film riddled with questions and great music. I have to say I loved it. Acting was very British but generally very good, although Ed Sheeran was a bit awkward. Nice just to relax, let go and not have...

Thanks John - I had pretty much come to this conclusion. From what I can see, you can use the LR app for free but it is limited as to what you can do or you can subscribe to the app. However, I don’t believe that this gives you any access to LR on a PC/Mac. I have no idea how this works the other wa...

Processing...

Lightroom or Photoshop to start with? I have never used LR and have not really used PS for well over 5 years and even then it was only a bit of a dabble. Also, does anyone know if you can use either of these on an iPad Pro 11" ?
