Invisible, beautiful technology

When a man as legendary as Steve Jobs passes away, you’re never going to be alone in writing tributes [ in fact I turned up at Storm today to find that Liam had already written one :-) ] – and as readers, you’re not going to be short of material to read. So this’ll be Read More »

Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011

All of us here at Storm awoke this morning to the depressing news that Steve Jobs has lost his battle to cancer. No single man has had such an impact on the way the work, the way we think and the way we design. Everyone here at Storm uses at least one apple product all Read More »

Things Storm bookmarked this week / 05-10-11

Things we liked this week: …Liam was confused by people not understanding that the iPhone 4S is the iPhone 5 (not to mention the shameless ripping off by Apple of Google Latitude…). Meanwhile, he bookmarked: Amazon’s new Kindle without keyboard now shipping in the UK (but apparently UK folks don’t get the Kindle Touch, or ad-supported Kindles).

13 Reasons To Buy A Mac

Here are the definitive top 13 reasons to buy an Apple Mac. We can admit to being Mac fans here at Storm – and we often get asked why we’re so Mac crazy; hopefully the list below will fill you in.

#1 – Virus-free & secure

Whether you’re a business or home user, you’ll be well aware that computer security is a major pain in the backside.

No bulky obtrusive anti-virus and anti-spyware programs clogging up your computer – updating every 20 minutes and hogging your CPU.  If that’s not enough to make you buy a Mac already, here are a further 12 reasons.
