LOGIK 7" Google Nexus 2 Starter KitWith my recent acquisition of a Google Nexus 7 (which you can read my review of here) the obvious next purchase was of course a protective case for the tablet. Now, although tablet design and construction has come on leaps and bounds since the very early market contenders. I am still a fan of looking after my tech, and keeping its resale value as high as possible.

Cases like these seem to divide the masses, some completely disagreeing with them and not seeing the need, others seeing them as an essential purchase.

Unlike my iPad I didn’t really want a bulky keyboard case, just something to help prevent knocks and scrapes. Scouring the market there’s a whole host of designs and builds, some starting for as little as £2.. (Which I’d personally avoid..) After a little shopping trip in my local city, I settled on the LOGIK 7″ Google Nexus Starter Kit.

BlueStacksIn todays device rich world, many of us get frustrated being locked into using one device for a particular application, and although emulators have been on the market for sometime now, few are as powerful as BlueStacks.

BlueStacks AppPlayer is an Android application emulator which allows Android apps to be used on OS X and Windows machines. The supported catalogue is far too large to list, but it would seem if you can name it BlueStacks supports it.

The AppPlayer works by connecting to your GooglePlay store account, once connected there’s a small application to install on your Android device to enable 1-click app syncing then your done.

The application features a PlayStore search engine which returns results from the PlayStore and enables you to run applications as if you was using an Android device.

As with all emulators (and more importantly Android apps) some applications work better then others. In fact, some applications don’t work at all.. However, if you are looking to connect to the Whatsapp network using the BlueStacks app, this seems to work pretty well.

So if you are looking to run Android Apps on OS X you can download BlueStacks by clicking this direct link



Managing large ActiveDirectory estates can often be a challenge, especially when you have a large group of AD administrators controlling group access.. This nifty little VBScript can be used to enumerate all the members of an AD Group. Handy for regular maintenance tasks.

This VBScript could easily be adapted to out put the list to a file, or even embedded inside a larger application which performs automated maintenance tasks.



Google Nexus 7

Those of who you know me, or are regular readers of my blog will know that I have been a devout Apple fan for many years. The premium price point has never put me off, as I’ve experienced the build quality first hand. So when I had the opportunity to review the Nexus 7, I was immediately sceptical of the build and the OS.

I know the OS war of Android vs. iOS will rage on for an eternity – and will essential split the crowds.. However, I am not about to start OS bashing in this post. I will be open and honest, my initial thoughts about the OS have actually been nulled….. That’s right.. I am actually seeing the benefits behind the open OS!

Now down to the business of the Google Nexus 7..
