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..

It’s fair to say Googles analytic service truly is the market leader for website visitor analysis.

The analytics service has been on the go for many years now, and features lots of advanced features for tracking an reducing bounce rates.

There’s always been one downside of the Google analytic service, and that’s been the mobile website, which can be temperamental to say the least!

Well that’s all about to change! Google have just released there own analytics iOS app. Which features all the facilities found on the website. Tied up nearly into a native app.



OS X comes with somewhat of a hidden feature straight out of the box. That’s the ability to fire AppleScripts on folder actions. Those actions could be anything from files being added, changed or deleted from a folder.

This can be handy if you need notification of when a file has finished downloading or need to rotate log files etc.

AppleScript is a powerful language, which to the beginner may even seem quite daunting. Luckily there’s a script all ready and waiting which notifies you of folder changes.

To switch on this feature, navigate to the folder you’d like to monitor. Now pull up the context menu (right click) and select folder actions setup.

Folder Actions

 

From here select the ‘add – new item alert.scpt’

Add Item

Once added, you have the opportunity to modify the Apple Script should you wish. If you are happy with the notification popup, simply close down the open windows and wait..

That’s all there is to it really, if you need something a little more advanced, you’ll have to break open the AppleScript editor. Or post a response below, and I’ll post a tutorial on how to do what you need!



20140622-173955-63595162.jpgSince the introduction of Apples “kill switch” preventing iPhones from being wiped or services being disabled while “find my phone” service is configured, iPhone theft has dropped dramatically. Giving owners the ability to render their phones stolen at the push of a button, turns a high value device into something a little harder to sell on.

Microsoft and Google have both recently announced they’re planning on following suit, and introducing similar systems into their own handset models.

Google recently launched their very own find my phone type system, which proved to be a little buggy at times. It’s believed that this system will gain the additional functionality of being able to disable phones on users request. Something Apple have been doing for sometime now.

This will be closely followed by a tightly bing maps integrated system by the guys over at Microsoft.

It would be great to fully stamp out phone theft, or at least make phones seem less desirable to thieves. Although this is properly unlikely to stop opportunist thieves it may stamp out some crime.
