How To Work My Apple Device Is Moving

After 668 days and 208 241 views at the time of writing this, It’s time to move How To Work My Apple Device….

The articles and content will be moving an extension of my own website. The reason for moving the site is simple… More activity. With How To Work My Apple Device currently on its own domain, separate from where I have been giving my blogging attention, the fact of the matter is that I have not given my closest attention this site. After thinking about it, it makes more sense to make this move and integrate the articles seamlessly between my other content where my goal is to cater for a broader audience and possibly expand the readership.

How To Work My Apple Device will now be available from www.glynnryan.co.za/category/how-to-work-my-apple-device … Or just click here.

Smarter, Safer, Further 2013 Subaru Forester XT Review

Last week I was given the opportunity to test the new smarter, safer, further, 4th generation 2013 Subaru Forester XT, by Subaru Centurion. With more focus on the Subaru BRZ lately, I feel the Forester has been neglected and is well-deserving of some attention in the spotlight.

2013 Subaru Forester XT Review

A Subaru Forester might not be your first choice for an exciting car to drive, but this version takes its breakfast with a turbo-charged shot of 95 octane petrol.

Exterior

Now in its 4th generation, the exterior of the Forester has held onto some elements from the previous generation Forester you’ve come to know, while also offering more refined styling in other aspects of the design...

Model Shmodel… Be One

I don’t know about you, but I’m not very fond of the camera. That, and it doesn’t seem to like me. I never know what to do, how to smile, more teeth? Fewer teeth? I just never know. But clearly it seems I’ve been doing it wrong.

A friend of mine from a company called Talent Box contacted me about a shoot they’re doing in association with Premier Hotels and Resorts on the 8th of June 2013, and maybe you’d like to go? It’s happening at Premier Hotel OR Tambo. It’s a full package and a full day, with a team of photographers and creative directors, 2 wardrobe changes and 2 hair and makeup changes, as well as 30 fully edited images for you to keep afterwards.

The entire gig costs R3 500 and is a pretty shweet deal considering what will all be happening on the day...
