Japanese blog Mac Otakara had a report yesterday about Apple’s iPhones that are coming this Fall. Sure, these rumors are almost 9 months ahead of release, but I’ll bite. Anytime we are talking about an even bigger iPhone, then I am totally on board.

Review: AirSnap Pro from Twelve South

 

I’ve kept my AirPods and now my AirPods Pro with me pretty much all the time from the moment I got them until now. (Well, except for that time that I lost my 1st gen buds, but that’s besides the point. And if you’ve owned AirPods, you’ve probably had a similar experience, or at least a scare, right?) That’s really the beauty of such a portable set of wireless earbuds.

One of the downsides of this extreme portability of the AirPods and AirPods Pro is that the case is inevitably going to get beaten up and show some wear. For example, I give you one of my first articles on the AirPods back in May of 2017:

As I feared, the AirPods case is a bit of a scuff magnet

Tile decided to take its beef with Apple mainstream last week, testifying before a U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s antitrust subcommittee in Colorado on Friday. Their argument is based on the facts that Apple removed Tile’s products from Apple Retail Stores, added limitations and and mandatory reminders to apps that use Location Services in iOS 13 and that Apple doesn’t allow them access to the new Ultra Wide Band chip in the latest iPhones. They also claim that Apple’s FindMy app is a knockoff of their own product.

What Will I Be Doing With My iPad Pro Tonight?

Watching my Tigers beat Clemson for a FBS College Football National Championship! Well, I’ll be watching the game on a tv along with my Wife, Mom and Dad, but I will be using the 12.9″ screen of my iPad Pro to keep up with some of ESPN’s other feeds for the game.

Despite Straw Man Arguments to the Contrary, the Post-PC Era is Very Real

And it’s a good thing for ALL of us

The iPad has been with us for almost 10 years now and the personal computer hasn’t died. If anything, Windows PC and Mac sales have recovered from past swoons.  They aren’t growing as fast as they once did, but they are stable.

The Microsoft Surface has been around for close to 7 years, but all laptops haven’t suddenly adopted its unique 2-in-1 design. Some have, but the traditional laptop form factor is still with us today, and still makes up the majority of sales in the category. However, these facts do not change the fact that the Post-PC Era is very, very real.

I love a good, creative Kickstarter or Indiegogo story, but I love it even more when an accessory maker with the chops to really deliver goes all out and brings something unique to the table. Brydge has been a step ahead of the pack when it comes to high quality keyboards for the iPad Pro for a couple of years and now they are pushing the limits even further. Their new Brydge Pro+ will be the first iPad Pro keyboard case from an established manufacturer to include a built-in trackpad.
