I got a good look at Aero Evolution’s photo and video drone before tonight’s Positive Networking meeting in Lincoln.
Paul and I presented our “Making Technology Work for You” masterclass this afternoon. We covered various tools and apps for social media and demonstrated how OneNote can help produce quality content. There was plenty of “hands on” and opportunities for people to ask questions. We also had chocolate biscuits!
From people’s reaction after the event, it was a successful afternoon.
Watch out for our next workshop, which will be another practical guide to help your business with technology.
I have lost my voice and the doctor says, “no talking” so it can recover! My family and friends thinks this is really funny – plenty of jokes!
OneNote on my my iPad is coming to the rescue – I can easily write out notes on it to save my voice. If I want to “speak loudly” may be I’ll write in red.
At Octagon Technology we are big users of Microsoft’s OneNote. We particularly like:
- the encryption security feature
- that we can easily share a variety of information
- that the information is then available across a variety of devices and platforms
Next Friday I am delivering a “hands on” seminar, with Paul, from PR Wilson Media, about how OneNote can help with social media content creation and management. Follow this link for more details and to book your free place.
Of course I need my voice back by then!
I loaded iOS 10 onto my iPhone 6S last night and here are my initial impressions:
One bad thing is that I cannot put iOS 10 on my iPod Touch. So some time in the future when Apple moves on and Microsoft stops support for iOS 9, OneNote may stop working on that device. I carry the iPod for iBooks and music, but I often use the pocket sized device as a second screen when I am working in my phone and if OneNote, in particular, will not sync correctly then I will have to change the device.
Overall I like the design idea that things should be bold, clear, clean and well spaced, I hate the ideas of “skeuomorphism” and was so pleased when Apple gave it up. When I am on my phone I want a clean interface that I can use quickly so I like this upgrade.
As ever a new iOS is only really a shuffling of the chairs when it is put on an older device and there will always be those older devices that are left behind. The geek in me says that software features and security move beyond older hardware. The business person says it is impossible to support too many older devices. The cynic in me says it is a marketing ploy to sell more devices. What is “old”? Production of 5th generation iPod Touch devices stopped in July 2015 – that is not old.
Our friends at Basic Business Services replied to my Tweet about this blog post:
So I have set up the Home button to my preferences and deleted all the stock apps I could – I never thought to try just deleting them as in previous versions they would not delete!
Thanks again to Basic.
As part of “World Password Day” I was asked to write a guest blog for Stonemoor Business Services, which was published yesterday.

Today I have been finishing off an article for the Octagon Technology blog. Kamila said she is going to publish it later this week.
The local Chamber of Commerce repeated an Octagon Technology article about business computer security – following the emergence on the internet of a new malware threat.
