iOS 5 Battery Improvement Advice

If you're like me then you enthusiastically updated to iOS 5 the second it came out and then happily headed into work once the upgrade, which felt like it took days, was completed. Also if you're like me you have an iPhone charging cable everywhere you go, with good reason. But this time you may have found that your iPhone spent much more time dangling off the charging cable than usual. If so then here's a tip to get some of that performance back: remove weather and stock from notifications.

1. Tap on Settings
2. Tap on Notifications
3. Tap Edit in the top right
4. Drag Weather and Stocks out of the notification centre list by tapping and holding on the three bars on the right side of the weather and stock row and dragging it into the Not In Notification Centre list which is towards the bottom of the screen.
5. Once both are out of the list tap Done in the top right

I've seen a massive improvement in battery life and performance since doing this so it may be worth trying if you are having battery issues.

Everyone Should Watch Tim Cook’s 2017 MIT Commencement Address

On June 9th 2017, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took to the stage at MIT and addressed this years graduating class. Throughout the speech you can hear echoes to the address the late Steve Jobs gave to the Stanford class of 2005 but make no mistake this feels like it’s personal and coming from the heart and to me it was brilliant. I cannot recommend it enough. If you decide you don’t have time to listen then just take away this one line:

Measure your impact on humanity not in the likes, but the lives you touch; not in popularity, but in the people you serve. - Tim Cook 2017


Tim strikes the perfect balance between hope, caution and responsibility. Your role in this world is to find how you can best serve humanity. Don’t let the negative voices, no matter where they come from, divert you from doing what you believe to be right and don’t let yourself become one of those voices. Sticking to your values and making the world better for everyone is not easy and is not going to be easy. Embrace the ch…

A Little Time Travel Thought Experiment

During the Back to the Future (BTTF) anniversary celebrations there was a lot of talk about how accurately they represented time travel. The consensus seemed to be that travelling back and appearing at the same physical location but in a different time was how time travel would likely work. This is where I got thinking. The universe is an ever moving beast. Nothing sits still and this leads to some pretty big problems. To start with the Earth rotates on its axis every ~24 hours, so our traveller would need to arrive at approximately the same time of day in the past. He’s worked out time travel so that’s not going to be hard to do. Next, the Earth orbits the sun every ~365.25 days. This one is a little more of a problem. If our traveller is in the heat of June and has decided to travel back because he wants to see an Xmas in the past he’s got a problem. The Earth will be on the other side of the Sun. So Marty needs to travel back to roughly the same day each year? Fair enough I suppos…
