From the official press release: Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $12.39, down 9 percent compared to the 2015 period. Net income from continuing operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 was $11.9 billion compared with $13.4 billion in the year-ago period, a decrease of 11 percent. Or, as the register put it, Big Blue’s blues diffuse: IBM’s sales drain now more like a sad trickle: IBM is touting growth in its cloud and cognitive business units

This week’s Awesome Apps: 2Do and Overcast
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 6:25a   Stuart McIntyre
Business App of the Week: 2Do There a good number of really excellent task management/GTD applications on the App Store these days. From the simple to-do list apps like Wunderlist and Things, through to the comprehensive GTD-derived toolkits like Omnifocus and Todoist, I’ve probably tried them all! Over many years of use, and numerous attempts at refining my work practices and task management approach, the app that I’ve come to feel most at home with is 2Do. Available on iOS, And

A few podcast recommendations for 2017
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 2:00p   Stuart McIntyre
As I mentioned on my recent post introducing the WTF Tech podcast, I’m a massive consumer of podcasts as well as having hosted a few in my time. My listening habits tend to be whenever I’m alone in the car (or driving my 16-year old geek son around – we tend to trade podcast recommendations), when I’m out walking or running, doing chores, or when there’s mindless work to be done (company accounts, expenses etc.). Across all of those situations, I probably get throug

This week’s Awesome Apps: Bear and Infuse Pro (and a bonus, Duet Display)
Tue, Jan 3rd 2017 3:50p   Stuart McIntyre
Throughout 2017 (and potentially beyond), Monday is going to be Awesome Apps day here at McIntyre Towers. As yesterday was a holiday here in the UK, we’re a day late this time, but we’ll be back on track next week! Since going iPad Pro back in the early summer, 95%+ of my online hours are now spent on iOS. Between the 12.9″ iPad Pro and iPhone 7 Plus, I am at the stage where almost the entirety of my consultancy business can be run on the iOS platform. This has taken some work

Blogging 365
Mon, Jan 2nd 2017 8:46a   Stuart McIntyre
New Year, New Start and all that… There’s no doubt that my blogging output has fallen away over the past few years as other forms of social contribution have risen (podcasts, Twitter, enterprise communities), and I want 2017 to be different. I love that blog posts are the one form of created content that still offer a continuous timeline from the early days of social media through to today. As other platforms have risen, become popular and then fallen away again, the ability to add

Droneboarding in 360
Sat, Dec 24th 2016 6:13a   Stuart McIntyre
Remember that Casey Neistat holiday video I shared a couple of days ago? (If not, go watch it now, I’ll wait here…) Well, Casey has now shared the footage from the many Samsung 360° cameras that were used in the shoot, and the footage is impressive to say the least: Do move your device to see what’s around. On many touch-screen devices, you can do this by sliding your finger across the screen as well. There’s little doubt that 360° video has been one of the break-thro

Introducing a new podcast: WTF Tech
Fri, Dec 23rd 2016 4:36p   Stuart McIntyre
Those who know me well will have realised I have a bit of a thing for podcasts, firstly in terms of consumption (20-30 episodes a week on average since the early days of TWiT back in 2005/6), and then in hosting and producing my own shows (Collaboration Matters, the Lotusphere Podcast, This Week in Lotus, Serendipity) since 2007. I’ve made no secret of mourning TWiL – it was so good to get together with Darren Duke and our panel of guests every week for two and a bit years, discussi

Ruark Backpack II: Wishing Sonos offered something similar
Wed, Dec 14th 2016 7:02a   Stuart McIntyre
The new BackPack II transforms our R1 deluxe tabletop radio and MR1 wireless speakers into completely portable products. It frees these miniature marvels from the mains power socket and into the bathroom or onto the decking and the great outdoors. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity which can result in unrefined sound, but BackPack II allows R1 and MR1 to retain their rich mains powered performance, but with complete portability. A total evolution of the original, BackPack I
