Deals: myGEKOgear’s MagiClaw Smartphone & Camera Mount

I’ve been through more device mounts in my time using PDAs and smartphones than I can count. Most of them lasted between two to four months and broke down like the cheap plastic they were made of. Between the high heat of Summer and the brief but real cold of the Winter, life is hard hanging out in a vehicle in the Mid South.

Tim Cook’s Hypocrisy Comes Home to Roost

I will state up front that, despite the title of this article, I am not looking to stray into a political discussion here. I will say that I don’t personally agree with the stances that Apple is taking in regards to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, but I do understand them. Like all companies, Apple and its CEO are responsible to their shareholders, which puts them in some difficult situations. I also understand that Apple’s business there is part of a much bigger and more complex situation that involves many large US and Western corporations, spans decades, and can’t be easily unraveled.

Living With the iPhone 11 Pro Max: This Battery Life Something Else

So I finally had an opportunity to push the battery life of my iPhone 11 Pro Max last weekend. I had to work both Saturday and Sunday out of town, a habit that has unfortunately become very common as of late. An eight hour day on a hot roof will really wear a guy out, so I was pretty gassed by the time I got back to my hotel room after dinner Saturday night.

Big Changes Could Be Coming To the 2020 iPad Pro

I get that I’m talking about a device that is over a year away when the 2019 version hasn’t been released. It hasn’t even been announced. We don’t even know when the announcement event will be yet. Normally I don’t like doing this kind of thing, but I think this particular rumor is interesting to be worth paying attention to.

Living With the iPhone 11 Pro Max: Deep Fusion Arrives….Sort Of

[Correction- Deep Fusion is available in the iOS 13.2 beta, not 13.1.2. I just happened to be waiting to update to 13.1.2 when I saw reports that the beta with Deep Fusion had released. While some reports say that 13.2 has been released, it is not available on the Apple Developer Page yet.]

Apple’s new Deep Fusion photography mode has arrived early for the new iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, courtesy of the iOS 13.2 Developer Beta that was released earlier today. Based on this quick follow-up to iOS 13 ans 13.1, it seems that Apple is handling this new photo enhancement mode similar to how they approached Portrait Mode a few years ago, likely targeting a mid to late Fall release.
