    My brother Ollie, and I, have recently released a new iPhone app, called Beyond Meditation. The app has a number of free audio levels, which progressively take you to a deeper feeling of relaxation, over a number of months. Just listening for ten minutes a day, can be hugely beneficial to you. Download the app here: Also, like our Facebook page. As of November 24th 2014 The Full binaural beats audio meditation program contained within the app is totally FREE – for a limited time only – get it while you can, and enjoy very deep, relaxing meditation! Using the app is as simple as selecting the Level track you are on (beginning with Level 1) and then selecting any Ambient track to go along with it. A large selection of beautifully crafted Ambient tracks are provided (including nature sounds, bells, gongs, bowls, chimes and ambient music) BUT you have to hear them to believe how good they really are. Meditation is the state you reach when all of the conditions are right, and our precisely engineered, powerful, high quality audios stimulate the best brainwave conditions for deep meditation. New mental clarity, peace of mind and awareness are the result of consistent use. Each level is followed by a deeper level until the last level (Level 10). It takes 30 days to complete each level. The audios in this app are designed to be safe when used as per the instructions, which must be read before use. NOTE: You may purchase all of the further levels from within the app in one transaction at a 60% discount over their individual in-app purchase price (look for the “Buy All” button within the app’s sidebar).

    Auto-Reader for Safari 

    Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 14.56.03Automatically enter Reader on any page for which Reader is available.

    Safaris ‘Reader’ feature is one of the main reasons I use Safari most of the time, on my Mac. I also use Chrome (mainly for it’s syncing features), but I always come back to Safari when doing any serious news trawling.

    I built this handy little Safari extension, based on example code from Apple. Download the extension here.

    The Truth About Being Broke 

    Very good article about debt, and how we should avoid it. I learned a similar lesson myself in college, with a very small loan, which took me ages to pay back!

    Get a fusion drive on your old Mac 

    “Setup a Fusion drive on any Mac capable of installing a hard drive and SSD together”

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 18.29.09

    My 2011 iMac has an SSD and a 2TB drive inside. However, they both show up as separate volumes on my Mac. Using this simple guide, I was able to combine both drives to create a faster ‘Fusion’ drive which makes management of photos, movies etc much easier for me.

    The end of roaming charges 

    Consumers will next year be able to use their mobile phones across the European Union for the same price as at home, it is planned, after officials voted to fast-track major reforms of telecoms regulation.It will cost the same to use a smartphone on the Continent as at home under the proposals

    via EU to end mobile roaming charges next year – Telegraph.

    Some good news from Europe for a change, and some interesting food for thought.

    Does this mean that I will now be allowed to pick up a pre-pay sim card in, say, Germany, and use it as my primary sim in Ireland? Can I now shop for the best rates in all of the EU?
