MacFormat mayhem

In print / Latest / Technology

As expected, it’s been a hectic month of tech writing with all manner of digital and print shenanigans to attend to. Probably the best example of my busyness can be found in the latest issue of MacFormat, which I reviewed a bunch of stuff for…



Angelbird’s SSD2go pocket being a particular highlight, proving itself the ‘fastest ever portable SSD’ to grace the cover of the magazine. Combining blistering speed with sublime build quality and looks to boot, it’s sure to make waves on the storage scene.

With a flurry of activity trackers boasting all-new features on the horizon, 2015 is set to be a big year for the category. At £50, the MisFit Flash is one of the first to bring affordability to the market without skimping on features. Should the big tracker brands be worried about the likes of MisFit undercutting their latest super-charged offerings? Be sure to check out my review of Fitbit’s new Charge wristband next issue for an answer to that question.

This issue, I also took the time to test the latest range of in-ear headphones retailing between £50 and £100. Up for evaluation are the Audiofly AF56M, Sony MDR-EX650AP, Klipsch R6i, RHA MA750i, AKG K375 and Vibe’s Brass BA11s (shown).


Finally, I took the new OS X desktop publishing client Desk for a spin. (Think iA Writer, but with wide blog integration.)

That’s it from me for this month. Don’t forget there’s lots more insightful content in MacFormat from a host of savvy tech writers, so go and grab yourself a digital copy today!
