New photos of our Lalita range in action

As most of you are probably already aware we fairly recently launced a range of fashion-fabulous cases in collaboration with the very stylish Lalita Vintage.

Check out the new photos that Lalita have shot via Lalita’s website.

Siri, a month on… The good, the bad and the funny

Siri, a month on… The good, the bad and the funny

So, after a month of Siri plummeting into our lives with a much welcomed bump, we review just whether or not he (yes, we’ve decided he’s a he) has become a help or a hindrance in our day-to-day lives.

 

The good…

Generally, Siri makes life easier. I know this’ll probably shock many of you, but did you know that you used to have to go into a calendar and actually physically type in an invite using your fingers? Now you just need to lift your phone to your ear, tell Siri to do it and he’ll take care of the rest. Actually, this may sound pretty trivial and spark cries of “what’s the world coming to?” and you may indeed have a point, but it’s pretty frightening how quickly having to input all this manually becomes a chore once you realise that you don’t have to… And it’s not like you see people carrying around two yoghurt pots and a piece of string in their back pockets anymore do you?

 

   

The bad…

Although there’s bound to be an updated version on its way and this was given to us with a slight mutter of the word “Beta” under breath, Siri can be a bit of a pain in the wotsit sometimes and although for the main part he makes life easier, we’d be lying if we said you won’t have at least one moment when you want to wipe that little smile off his face and send him to the naughty step. Here are a few examples:  

 

   

And the funny…

But, all is forgiven when Siri gives us little gems such as the below:

Charge your smartphone at festivals using the power of music…
