iTunes Movie of the Week (UK) - Harry Potter Complete Collection £19.99

iTunes Movie of the Week (UK) - Harry Potter Complete Collection £19.99

Every week Apple presents a special offer on some of the movies in their iTunes Store. This week I thought I'd highlight a special offer consisting of no fewer that eight movies. The Harry Potter Complete Collection consists of all the cinematic outings of the plucky ‘the boy who lived’ wizard with a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. Now you, a mere muggle, can follow the adventures of Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, as they battle the evil Voldemort, along with an expansive cast of characters played by some of the cream from British cinema.

iTunes Movie of the Week - Where it All Began Offer

iTunes Movie of the Week - Where it All Began Offer

This week appears to be a little different on Apple’s iTunes UK Movie Store. Instead of the usual ‘Movie of the Week’, they are offering an assortment of first instalments on movie franchises priced at either £2.99 or £3.99. I have included a list of some of my favourites you might wish to purchase as these very attractive prices, although there are several more you can pick up if your tastes differ from mine. These offers do not usually last too long so grab them while you can.

Elobeth Soft Sports Silicone Bracelet Strap Review

Elobeth Soft Sports Silicone Bracelet Strap Review

The latest band I've added to my collection is  the Elobeth Soft Sports Silicone Bracelet Strap. It's obviously styled after the recently released Nike Apple Watch bands and appears to match the very same colour options. I opted for the rather striking black/volt version and have pretty much been wearing it every day since.

The Mac & Forth Show 102 - It's Full of Rumours

This week I am joined by Alan Vickers and Ric McCorriston as we go over the weeks Apple and tech related news. 

I finally make my Twitter feed usable again. M&F is now available in Apple News. Apples announces a date and new venue for WWDC. The iPad gets some adverts again, finally. Lawmakers decide if we can ‘Fix it’. Imagine if Apple bought Imagine and there are so many rumours floating about.

Shocked that Apple is Working on a 4K TV!

Shocked that Apple is Working on a 4K TV!

Today Mark Gurman over on Bloomberg has reported that Apple is testing a new Apple TV capable of streaming content for UHD-TV's, or as most folks know them, 4K TV. I think the more shocking story would be if Apple 'wasn't' working on this. With the likes of Amazon and ROKU boxes already offering this ability, it would be astounding if the Cupertino Company wasn't already hard at work not only on producing a box for later this year but also securing the rights to stream 4K content from their iTunes store.
