Apple watch coming soon

I like new Apple stuff, and I like watches.

Early next year the new watch from Apple will be available, and I am certainly looking forward to it.

There seems a good amount of choices and comes in two face sizes — 1.5 and 1.65 inches, but I do worry that you will have to have a new iPhone at launch, though the iPhone 5 should be ok.

Update WordPress to Version 4.0

Hi all, new version of WordPress (version 4.0) is out. There is some blurb below. Please remember to back up your database, and any core files you have altered when you update your site. Here is a quick checklist for you:

Backup your database
Backup all your files at your hosting
(Square Apple provides hosting with daily automated backups so have a think about switching over!)
Verify the backups have been successful
(If doing the manual upgrade remember to also deactivate your plugins first).

Version 4.0 of WordPress, named “Benny” in honor of jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. While 4.0 is just another number for us after 3.9 and before 4.1, we feel we’ve put a little extra polish into it. This release brings you a smoother writing and management experience we think you’ll enjoy.

Looks pretty good so far, stable and

Reversible USB cable on new iPhone

It appears that Apple maybe be getting ahead of the game again and pre-empting the new reversible USB standard with its own cable.

As the Lightning cable already has the benefit of being plugged in in any orientation, this should stop me damaging both ends now :) You can also see the patent has been filled too.

And it seems some boxed cables ready for September 9th, the rumoured reveal date of the 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch iPhone 6 models.

Guess we need to see if these are real or not.

Font Awesome

font awesome wordpressCame across 2 WordPress sites today that both had a few plugins installed to enable Font Awesome on their sites.

Much easier and better for your site to set font awesome WordPress up in your functions.php file:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'prefix_enqueue_awesome' );

function prefix_enqueue_awesome() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'prefix-font-awesome', '//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css', array(), '4.0.3' );
}

All you need to do next is add the icons you need. Take a look over at Font Awesome for a few hundred icons.

Even do some great spinning icons :)

caching

For when those WordPress plugins don’t seem to play well with your theme. WordPress htaccess caching.

Edit the caching periods as you need. Now although this can have a big impact on page load speed, remember than often the page insights at Google will still tell you to implement caching, if you look at the results you will normally see that this will be for external files, you do not need to worry about these, at least I don’t :)

I also use Max CDN where possible, well worth the small monthly cost.
