The NHL Inks Deal with Apple To Use iPad Pros for Analytics

The NFL has had an exclusive agreement with Microsoft to use its Surface Pros for all on-field tech assistance for a while now. This was initially a source of scorn for Microsoft, as announcers and TV studio personalities routinely referred to them as iPads until corrected. However, the deal eventually became a positive for them as solid reviews from coaches and players came in and the increased visibility on NFL sidelines helped to get the Surface name out in the public eye.

DuckDuckGo has staked its reputation on being the privacy-centric search engine, putting it at the opposite end of the spectrum from Google and their appetite for all of your data.

Review: UAG Metropolis for the 2018 iPad Pros

While I love a leather case, there are times when device protection comes first. If you take your iPad Pro with you to work every day like me, this may be the case. In my case, sometimes using my iPad Pro at work means putting it in harm’s way. That has a way of changing your priorities when it comes to cases.

One of the reasons that I’ve been a fan of Urban Armor Gear for a few years now is because their cases offer great protection at a reasonable price. However, it goes further than just taking great care of your devices. UAG’s cases also manage to do it with style and good design, as well.

Apple Turned Back the Clock at CES 2019

It was almost like 2008-2012. We all know Apple never shows up to CES, but they never really had to. There was a time when, no matter what happened at the show, they were still the main story. The show floor would be packed to the gills with iPhone accessories and apps.
