So techie and web publisher Joshua Topolsky recently went on a very emotional, not too rational, Twitter tirade regarding the iPad Pro. Just a tiny example: Couple of tweets about the new iPad and iOS 11. It is inferior toa laptop in almost every way, unless you like to draw. If you think you can […]
I am increasingly happy to be in Apple’s always improving ecosystem. No, more than happy, I’m delighted. Really. It’s fantastic. The devices and services tie together so smoothly. I cannot imagine a better experience. iCloud has evolved into something that just works all of the time. I can’t think of the last time I encountered […]
It’s been a week since the 12.9″ 2017 iPad Pro arrived at my door. I can best summarize by saying that without any doubt, this is my favorite Apple device ever. I’m not surprised. I expected it would be. And I say that having used it on iOS 10 only. No beta for me. Actually, […]
In a recent post on his blog, John Nack asked; Affinity Photo on iPad: Will anyone care? I and a few others posted comments. My response: I know I do. Over the past year I’ve shifted most of my work over to iPad. I manage 15+ client websites using Coda. On the Mac I’d been […]

There’s nothing quite as nice as setting up a new iPad and watching Star Trek The Next Generation.
Well, well, well. The 2017 WWDC has come and gone and much that iPad users hoped for has been announced. As far as I’m concerned Apple hit it out of the park. If the features announced work as well as they look then I will be very happy and more productive. While no operating system […]
I complained the other day on Twitter about Apple-oriented tech podcasts being snarky. In contrast, I’ve been enjoying Techpinions a lot lately. Thoughtful and mature analysis. The latest episode covering WWDC 2017 is excellent.
I’ve been using the Affinity apps, Photo and Designer, on my Mac for the past couple of years and thanks to them I’ve largely left Adobe behind. In fact, I only use Adobe for InDesign projects and for Illustrator’s trace functionality. It’s rare that I open up either Illustrator or Photoshop and I look forward […]
Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot is fantastic and this is a good use of it. See it on YouTube
