  • The Big iPad

    This is a really good post from Matt Gemmell on the new iPads. Despite my quoting below please do read the entire post. Ok, now some choice quotes from Gemmell. Gemmell on reviewers who don’t use the iPad Pro full time: They draw conclusions that are intellectually dishonest. Watch out for that. And who that […]

  • iPad and Surface Competition

    Ross Rubin has a solid post about the differences between Surface and iPad, but this bit about value to developers is key: That said, the long-term incentive for at least Mac developers to adapt the full power of their apps for the iPad seems clear. The level of mastery Apple has achieved in silicon–combined with […]

  • Initial iPad Impressions from Mr. Blanc

    Shawn Blanc on the Keyboard Folio: The new Keyboard Folio is nicer than the previous Smart Keyboard Cover, but I’m not in love with it. Because the Keyboard Folio attaches to the entire back of the iPad, it’s not as easy to quickly connect / disconnect the iPad as it was with the predecessor. This […]

  • GORUCK Veterans Day Sale

    With the price increases at GORUCK I know many have been waiting for a sale. There’s good deals to be had on the Bullet Rucks, and the clothing. I snagged a pair of midweight Simple Pants, as I love the ones I already have. I’d also get another Bullet Ruck if I needed it, but […]

  • padOS

    Good post from Ben Lovejoy on his experiences with the iPad Pro so far. What really stands out in his post, which I’ve seen all over with this round of iPad coverage, is that many people (rightfully) feel that software companies don’t take the iPad seriously enough. This couldn’t be more true. Just look at […]

  • When a Business Insider Writer Doesn’t Realize They Don’t Use Computers the Same

    Lots of headlines I could have used for this piece written by Dave Smith (don’t bother reading it in full): I insist the iPad Pro is not a real work computer because even trying to perform the most basic of tasks felt underwhelming and compelled me to use a laptop instead. Many people I’ve heard […]

  • Believing without evidence is always morally wrong

    Francisco Mejia Uribe: However, reality has caught up with Clifford. His once seemingly exaggerated claim that ‘it is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence’ is no longer hyperbole but a technical reality. Erin and I were talking the other night, where she made the comment about how she wondered […]

  • Making iPad into a Pro

    Craig Mod has an excellent essay about the pitfalls and hopes of the iPad. This sentence is spot on: The problems begin when you need multiple contexts. For example, you can’t open two documents in the same program side-by-side, allowing you to reference one set of edits, while applying them to a new document. I […]

  • ‘Serious iPads’

    My take away from John Gruber’s review of the new iPads is that iPads are going to become the go to tool for photographers going forward. Gruber ends his review noting: These are serious iPads for serious iPad users. I initially chuckled and thought “too bad no one knows who those people are”. Then I […]
