The iPhone 6 Plus – Perhaps the best iPhone for seniors – EVER!

Tom Gordon's - iTechGeezer


Kudos to AT&T for under promising, and over delivering. My shiny new iPhone 6 Plus arrived almost three weeks earlier than the original order confirmation said it would.

How do I like it? As Steve Job’s would have said… “magical”

Although it’s huge compared to older iPhones, it is so thin, rounded and lightweight that it doesn’t seem to be so large.

I bought Apple’s leather carry case which is buttery soft yet rugged enough to give you peace of mind in holding the iPhone.

The 5.5″ screen is phenomenal – so sharp, clear and easy to read everything from books to movies.

This iPhone has tricked me several times by making me “think” that I’m using my iPad! It’s that good.

It works with pretty much all my “toys” like my Apple BlueTooth keyboard and my Beats BlueTooth “Pill” wireless speaker system. AirPrint to my HP printer and AirPlay…

Parco del Gran Paradiso, Italia – August 2014

Walk Think Learn

Following Cinque Terre, we headed north towards the Valle d’Aosta, where the Gran Paradiso Park seats. The name says it all: several valleys in the heart of the Italian Alps. We set up our caravan as far as it can get in the valley of Cogne and combine an exploration of the mountains and the surrounding cities.

Two special considerations in this peaceful area. At first, the Rifugio Vittorio Sella dominating the valley at 2588m and offering really nice views both on Valsavarenche and the glaciers around with a really nice walk to get there. Then to the city of Cogne that has known how to manage the big amount of tourists while keeping a deep mountain spirit (and amazing pastries, extra points!).

If life offers you this chance, go and explore Gran Paradiso, as well as as the Aosta Valley. Being a big fan of cheese I recommend Courmayeur…

Everything You Need To Know About The iPhone 6 And iPhone 6 Plus

Today, Apple announced the new iPhone… and there’s a lot of ground to cover!

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

First of all, the rumors were true: The iPhone 6 is not only here, it’s got a big brother to go with it, thus getting Apple caught up on what’s been a trend on Android for, like, two years now. Even the smaller model gets a pretty substantial size-bump to 4.7 inches so if you had a fancy case, time to buy a new one.

Both have Retina HD screens, and the glass goes to the edges and curves around. It’s also just shy of 7mm thin. The bigger iPhone has a new landscape view, that looks just like Android’s landscape view, and a few features to help people with tiny hands, which, I have to say… really? I have tiny doll hands, I own a Samsung Note 3…
