Review: Pad and Quill Bella Fino and Traveler Cases for the iPhone XS and XS Max

A few months ago, I reviewed Pad and Quill’s Linen Journals and came away very impressed. I knew the company by reputation before, but that experience was enough to show me that they are the real deal. Their reputation is well deserved. So, when they reached out to see if I would like to take a look at some a couple of cases for the new iPhone XS and XS Max, I jumped at the chance.

Don’t Ever Doubt Apple’s Massive Influence Over the Tech Industry

OnePlus is a company that I have a lot of respect for. They have been able to fill a niche in the smartphone market while others companies have fallen away by listening to their users and serving them well. They make good quality hardware that works well with Android, and they have a devoted following because of it. Their market share is small and they really aren’t known anywhere outside of the tech bubble, but they have passionate fans within it for good reason.

Apple’s iPad Event is Finally Revealed!

Apple finally sent out the invites today, and Tuesday, October 30 is the day. The event is being held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn New York. While this announcement has been the worst kept secret in tech since the iPhone event wrapped with no iPad news, the date is probably the least interesting part of this announcement and invite. Here are a few things that stand out to me:

This power strip gives you a versatile combo of three outlets and two USB-A ports for device charging. But that is just the beginning of what this interesting product can do.

Several new leaked images of the coming iPad Pros have showed up over the past 24 hours courtesy of Slashleaks and mysmartprice. Not only do they look really good, but they also look dead-on similar to each other and to other recent leaks. The closer we get to an announcement, the more credible these leaks become, so I have very high confidence that these images are the real deal.

Deals: mbeat 6-in-1 USB-C Hub for MacBook Pro

If you have a MacBook, you have to make the most of a little when it comes to ports. With the 2016 and 17 models only having two USB-Cs on board, adapters and dongles are a necessity to connect USB-A devices and SD and MicroSD Cards.

Is Apple Really Planning to Give Away its New Streaming Shows?

Apple working on its own original shows and video content is one of the worst kept secrets in both tech and Hollywood right now. Their intentions were revealed with the mediocre Planet of the Apps and the somewhat better longer-form version of Carpool Karaoke, which is still alive and kicking. However, while these two trial balloons have been out there for all to see, all of Hollywood has been hearing the names of well-known actors, producers, and show-runners attached to projects that Apple has secured for future release and taking notice of just how serious they are about this new venture.

How Will USB-C Work on the iPad Pro?

After another round of leaks and software data mining, it looks like the iPad Pro’s rumored switch from a Lightning Port to USB-C is all but confirmed. This shift is a big deal, as it moves the iPad Pro lineup more in line with Apple’s notebook computers than its smartphones. When you consider that the lower-cost iPad still has Lightning, this becomes an even more notable distinction between devices.
