Fresh installs all around

After experiencing issues with both my phone (Nexus 4) and my Macbook (it was starting to get very sluggish), I decided to take some time over the weekend and do a fresh OS install on both devices.

Unfortunately, Android 4.4 hasn’t been released yet so it’s still only running 4.3, but it’s not as laggy as it was before the reset. I’m still getting the odd random crash, but it’s definitely a marked improvement over what it was.

Whilst I was performing a clean OS X install, I opted for Mavericks. There are a few features that would be very useful in my day to day use of the mac, so figured it was worth risking. I’ve heard lots of good things about it, so why not. I haven’t performed a fresh install since I got the Macbook, back in October 2012. So far, so good. First impressions are a slightly improved battery life. Definitely seems to last longer than it did before. The rest is a ‘time will tell’ scenario, but I can’t imagine it’ll be that bad.
