New releases

Well, the apple event seemingly went well. With a new iPad and a new mac, as well as a new operating system, things are probably going great for them! However apple did not release external testing at the event, which is both good and bad. This additional delay provides me extra time to get my […]

This time, the event is titled ‘It’s been way too long’ and is likely to hint at whats to come at this event. Apple is likely to give the Mac […]

Subscription updates.

Due to a huge spike in people registering to my blog with disposable email addresses, I have decided to remove registration from being a method by which readers of this blog could subscribe. I do not know why people want to use disposable email addresses, but it is definitely not going to be accepted on […]

These notifications Include a basic email registration, creating an account and now, mac-only push notifications!

This was because I accidentally messed up a setting with my blog whilst trying to change the URL from www.adriancedwards.com/blog to www.adriancedwards.com. This caused wordpress it to think it was installed somewhere else on the […]
