The Jolly Teapot is a blog mostly about software & hardware, social media & platforms, and all things Apple. All entries are posted by yours truly: my name is Nicolas Magand and I currently live in Strasbourg, France.

The name of this blog is inspired by this excellent Tom Gauld’s cartoon, and the highlight colour comes from this gorgeous car.
