I am a Christian husband and father of 3 living in the Southeastern US. I have worked as a programmer and project manager in the Commercial and Industrial Automation industry for over 19 years, so I am hands on with technology almost every day. However, my passion in technology is for mobile devices, specifically Apple's iOS and iPadOS hardware and software. My favorite is still the iPad.

There’s an Interesting New iPad Air Camera Rumor

iPad Air Mockup

A new iPad Air is expected sometime between now and the end of October, so it makes sense that rumors about the features, components and the actual release date will start to pick up in the coming weeks. There was an interesting but odd leak this week about the new iPad Air’s camera that I’m having trouble wrapping my head around.

Deals: Defense™ Titan Power Station

While all of our modern gadgets and conveniences require constant power or regular recharges, we don’t always have the luxury of an outlet nearby. Whether you are on a jobsite that doesn’t have permanent power or roughing it somewhere off the beaten path, sometimes you need to bring your own power with you.

A New Article Sheds Light on How Apple is Using AI and Machine Learning

John Giannandrea

When thinking of AI at Apple, the first thing most of us focus on is Siri. That often isn’t a very positive association. However, there is a lot more that Apple is doing with AI and Machine Learning today that is under the hood. While many of these new features may be less obvious, they are making a positive impact on Apple’s products.

Deals: ChargeHub V6: 2-Port Vehicle Charger + 4-Port Detachable Hub

Have you ever gone on a road trip with kids? As someone with a little experience with this, I can tell you that the struggle to keep all devices charged on a long trip, like say 13 hours to St Augustine, FL or 14 hours to Williamsburg, VA, is very real. If you want peace in your vehicle for that long, then its essential.

It’s Time for a New Way to Write

Apple Health

I’ve been busier over the last two years than I’ve ever been. That’s mostly due to a project I’ve been focused on that often takes me well beyond the normal 8 hour work day. Thankfully, it is nearing its end, but I’m still quite busy and often get home from work late. And once I get home, I usually eat dinner and write something for this site. It’s been a vicious cycle that hasn’t been kind to me physically. Add in a fair amount of time on the road and there’s been enough of a toll taken that it’s time for some real changes.

Just as I Hoped, Apple Watch Series 6 Rumored to Read Blood Oxygen

Apple Watch

Just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote about coverage of a study at Stanford that included an app for the Apple Watch and other smartwatches. This app takes blood oxygen and skin temperature readings, along with heart rate, to help identify the onset of COVID-19 ahead of noticeable symptoms. So far, that study has met with great success. In that article, I wondered if Apple would seize on this opportunity and include blood oxygen readings as a built-in feature of the next Watch.

A Few Things to Consider While Taking Aim at Apple and Big Tech

Old Apple Logo

Right off the bat, I want to make it clear that I’m not shilling for Apple when it comes to arguments against the behavior of the largest Big Tech companies. I always lean toward the preservation of free markets with intelligent and targeted regulation to prevent some of the messes we find ourselves in right now. The very kind of regulation that has been totally absent for over 20 years of rule by both major American political parties (more on this in a moment). However, that belief doesn’t excuse bad corporate behavior and Apple is certainly guilty of some.

Apple and its iPads Had a Huge 3rd Quarter

2020 iPad Pro

Apple just reported an unexpectedly huge 3rd quarter overall, with revenue up 10.9% year over year. Earnings-wise, it’s actually the biggest third quarter in company history. Revenue and sales increased pretty much across the board, including iPhone sales, making Apple the only company that saw an increase in smartphone sales last quarter,

All of that aside, it was the iPad that saw the biggest increase of all year over year, with sales up a whopping 31%. That’s a significant increase, especially on the heels of two straight quarters of declining revenues.

iPhone and iPad Leaks Continue to be a Moving Target

iPhone 11 Pro

First the iPhone 12 was coming in October. Then it was September. Now we have a report form a reliable (if less than likable) source saying that its October again. I guess it comes down to which leaker you trust the most.
