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.

Surface Pro X

According to a recent Bloomberg report, Microsoft is finally getting into the custom silicon business. It looks like they are starting down this road primarily to aid their cloud and server business, but it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t have future plans to bring these new ARM-based chips to their Surface Pro X and other future models, replacing Qualcomm’s SQ1 and 2 processors.

Review: UAG Lucent Series for the 2020 iPad Air

UAG Lucent
I’ve reviewed several cases from UAG over the years, including their new Mouve case for the iPhone 12 Pro Max a few weeks ago.

AirPods Max

 

I’ve been looking forward to the announcement of the AirPods Max, formerly rumored to be called the AirPods Studio, since the rumors of them started rolling over a year ago. I kept track of all the reports and patent filings and approvals. I’ve paid attention as features and pricing have been discussed. I was let down when the stories of production delays came up a couple of months ago and definitely got my hopes up a few days ago when it looked like Apple got it together and was ready to release.

AirTags were supposedly done and ready, while an Apple TV is in development and the AirPods Studio ran into some delay. Continue reading
