I follow Games Done Quick every January and July with their ‘AGDQ’ & ‘SGDQ’ events since 2013. Due to the recent catastrophe in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, they have quickly set up a weekend stream to donate towards the residents who have been severely affected by it.
An amazing idea, and very impressive that it’s already raised over fifty thousand dollars since it was decided on Wednesday that the stream would occur.
You can watch and donate right here.
This is an idea that was given to me from a lovely Patreon Supporter. You can follow or even put a pound in here.
There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t use the iPad.
I spoke about it in detail on an episode of BYOD, and the initial impressions of when I bought the new model.
But six weeks on with iOS 11 still installed, I thought I’d share what apps I frequently use.
The first episode of the Show is live!
You can go into a podcast app such as ‘Overcast’ and search for ‘The Outpost Show’.
You could follow this link which ‘should’ take you to the podcast in question.
Or just click the link in the header at the top.
An introductory episode will be going live soon, but I wanted to explain what it will be about, alongside some thoughts on podcasts in general. Alongside, how you can help with this.
Last week I was asked to be the first guest on a podcast which has been picking up steam since its launch at the end of April.
It’s an hour and a half of talking about the new iPad, iOS 11, Siri, and the iPhone VIII.
It was a good time. The link to it is below, while you can search for it on Overcast and Apple Podcast apps.

People have forgotten.
If you haven’t seen LOST, the reference for what I’m about to say is lost on you.
‘Armed and Ready.’
Continuing on from the cliffhanger that was the WWDC Impressions a month ago, I bought the new iPad Pro 10.5″ model last week.
As soon as my iCloud backup had restored, iOS 11 was then put upon it.
Lots of impressions so far from these have been gathered.

The iPad grew up last Monday. Finally.
I’ve purposefully held back from writing this the day after or even the same week as WWDC. Out of the products announced on Monday, iOS 11 is full of small updates that people are still finding out now. A different volume overlay on videos wasn’t found until Thursday for instance.
But first, as Marvin Candle once said, a little history.
As I’ve said on Twitter, I’m attempting a stream in aid of Nathan McCree’s Tomb Raider Suite Kickstarter reaching the halfway mark.
The stream is now now live!
He’s only got £80,000 to go before he’s at Abbey Road to record the album on vinyl.
With this I decided, with fourteen days to go before the Kickstarter concludes, I will do my bit to play some games for the cause.

Each year, I like to do a few words on what I’d like to see for the next versions of iOS, macOS, and watchOS before they’re announced at WWDC on Monday from 6PM.
Last year was all about the three, but this year it’s a bit different; iOS 11 for iPad.
