One of my current fave iPhone apps is Wine Pad, which is a nifty notebook for logging all kinds of details, notes and ratings for wines you’re checking out.Given that I’ve been checking out quite a few (largely Spanish reds) recently, I’ve got to know the app pretty well.Whilst it lacks a nice global touch like a big fat searchable database of wines, or at least broad wine reference information, it certainly does what it say on the tin in terms of letting you note all kinds of details – colour, varietals, region, taste, price… loads of stuff – as well as give star ratings, so you can always refer to your notes wherever you are and have with you a list of wines you know you like. Click here to go to Wine Pad on the App Store…

Yesterday’s OSX update from Apple was a bit of a non-event really; very much under the hood and invisible improvements and fixes.And “improvements”. Again very little to notice and too many references to “improved reliability”… so, er, bug fixes basically. Not going to whine too much as any update tends to be a good thing all-in-all (s long as it doesn’t break anything) but I just felt a bit *Meh* at not having any cool new features show up.Probably says more about what a spoilt bunch of bastards some of us are ;)

Having been used to doing “Shift Apple 3” for screengrabbing on my desktops and laptops for years and years and years, I was pleased (but a bit surprised in a way) to find out from Cult of Mac that Apple allow you to screengrab your iPhone too…Dead easy of course.All you do is hold in the “Home” button (that’s the round one below the screen) and click once on the “Power” button that’s on the top of the phone. Don’t hold it down, just click it the once, and you’ll hear the familiar camera shutter noise, and if you then go to the “Camera Roll” part of the camera where you store photos you’ve taken with your iPhone, you’ll find the image there.And then you just import it into iPhoto.
