iPad Insight Garage Sale

As promised in my last post, I have several cases that I have reviewed for older iPhones and iPads over the years that I am willing to send out to the first responder I hear from. Just pay the shipping to you plus a small handling charge of $5 for iPhone cases and $10 per iPad case to cover things like boxes, packing material and the time to get all of these packages out the door. Then it’s all yours.

Rest assured that, in spite of the tongue-in-cheek money bag above, this is not a money making venture for me. Feel free to check the retail prices of these cases, or what used versions go for on eBay or elsewhere. You guys are definitely getting the better end of this deal, but that’s fine by me.

I’m just happy to move these quality cases out of my house to people who will get some use out of them. I can’t just throw items this nice away, but I have also never felt good about selling review items that companies have given to me. It’s much better to hand those down or give them away if I’m not using them.

Thinking of Saying Goodbye to the iPad Pro for a Bit

I’ve owned an iPad Pro since the spring of 2016, when I picked one up used just a few months after the 12.9″ first gen device was released. It was that extra size and the brand new at the time Apple Pencil that pulled me in, but it was the additional versatility and utility of the device that kept me interested over time.

Deals: Nestle Nespresso EN80B Original Espresso Machine

So why is a tech site posting about a deal on a Nespresso machine? Frankly, it’s because I got one from my wife for Christmas and I absolutely love it. Call it a vote of confidence for any coffee lovers who aren’t satisfied with a Keurig or their basic drip coffee anymore.

The Condensation Issue with Apple’s AirPods Max is Real

AirPods Max Flat

After reading some of the early reports of AirPods Max users noticing condensation inside the earcups under the memory foam ear cushions, I have been keeping an eye on mine. After two recent two hour or longer sessions using them, I can confirm that I have found small amounts of condensation inside of mine, as well. This definitely isn’t a fictitious issue.

This problem is interesting to me because I work in Commercial and Industrial HVAC, Energy Management and Monitoring and Systems Integration. The engine that’s driving this problem is right in my wheelhouse, which is a big reason why I decided to write about it.

A Few iPad Predictions for 2021

Logitech Folio Touch for iPad Air In front

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I did pretty well in my iPad predictions last year. However, there were a few clues out there that pointed in potential directions that Apple could move in. I just followed the breadcrumbs. We only have a couple of those this year, so I don’t expect to do as well. However, here are a few of my guesses for the year ahead.

My iPad Predictions Scorecard for 2020

IPad Air 4 Back

One year ago today, I made a predictions post for what I expected from Apple for the iPad in 2020. Whether you have sources or not (and I definitely have none), you should be willing to keep score if you are going to step out and make them. With that in mind, here’s a look back at how I fared with those predictions.

Apple’s New Patent for Reconfigurable Keyboards is Really Interesting

MacBook Pro

Mac users everywhere rejoiced when Apple dumped their butterfly keyboard design for a tried and true scissor switch mechanism last year. Now the keyboards on newer Macs, as well as the Magic Keyboard for the iPads Pro and Air, have the latest and greatest design and Apple fans have made it very clear that they’re in favor of the switch.

While I’m not eager to see Apple fooling around with their key mechanisms again anytime soon, I am intrigued by the possibilities that may be in store for the keys themselves based on a patent they were awarded today.
