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.

The iPad Air is a Solid Stand-In for My Old iPad Pro

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about possibly selling my 2018 iPad Pro to raise some money for the new miniLED version that most analysts and leakers expect to arrive in a little over a month. It actually just sold yesterday on Swappa, but I actually put it up for safekeeping right after writing that article.

I recently came across product announcements for a couple of new goodies from the well-known accessory manufacturer Satechi.

There have been a few rumors over the last month covering a new iPad Mini that’s slated to arrive in 2021.  Early reports predicted a design closer to the iPad Pro and new iPad Air, but the most recent ones are predicting a more modest design upgrade to the iPad Air 3 design language.

AirPods Max Earcup Covers: I Didn’t Know I Needed Them Until I Saw Them

AirPods Max Cover

I was searching for an Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Audio Jack cable for my AirPods Max on Amazon a few days ago when I started coming across several of a certain new accessory- silicone earcup covers. Considering how aluminum can scratch in the right (or wrong) circumstances, I figured  I would pick up a pair and try them out.

Living with Apple’s AirPods Max: One Month in and Still Going Strong

AirPods Max

When I purchased the AirPods Max at launch, I was unsure if I would hang onto them past Apple’s Holiday season return window. While the feature set was impressive and I had a feeling the sound quality would impress, the price tag was still quite hard to swallow.

Apple Folding iPhone Rumors from Bloomberg Are Worth Paying Attention To

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Flex Mode

Rumors that Apple is working on a new folding iPhone are nothing new. I wrote about a report on Apple testing folding screen prototypes from Samsung from the Chinese-language site EDN  back in November. However, when such reports come from Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, it’s worth a lot closer consideration.

iPad Insight Garage Sale: Apple iPhone and iPad Cases Available- Just Pay Shipping

As promised in my last post, I have several cases that I have reviewed for older iPhones and iPads over the years that I am willing to send out to the first responder I hear from. Just pay the shipping to you plus a small handling charge of $5 to cover things like boxes, packing material and the time to get all of these packages out the door. Then it’s all yours.

Rest assured that, in spite of the tongue-in-cheek money bag above, this is not a money making venture for me. Feel free to check the retail prices of these cases, or what used versions go for on eBay or elsewhere. You guys are definitely getting the better end of this deal, but that’s fine by me.

I’m just happy to move these quality cases out of my house to people who will get some use out of them. I can’t just throw items this nice away, but I have also never felt good about selling review items that companies have given to me. It’s much better to hand those down or give them away if I’m not using them.

Thinking of Saying Goodbye to the iPad Pro for a Bit

I’ve owned an iPad Pro since the spring of 2016, when I picked one up used just a few months after the 12.9″ first gen device was released. It was that extra size and the brand new at the time Apple Pencil that pulled me in, but it was the additional versatility and utility of the device that kept me interested over time.

Deals: Nestle Nespresso EN80B Original Espresso Machine

So why is a tech site posting about a deal on a Nespresso machine? Frankly, it’s because I got one from my wife for Christmas and I absolutely love it. Call it a vote of confidence for any coffee lovers who aren’t satisfied with a Keurig or their basic drip coffee anymore.
