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.

Why Does the March Madness App Have to Suck Every Other Year?

I’m a huge college sports fan in general, but the one that hooked me first was college basketball. I grew up in Memphis during the heyday of what was then Memphis State, now the University of Memphis, basketball, so becoming a fan of the home team was pretty natural. My parents and I rarely missed a game on TV or radio and there was nothing that could top one of the best championship tournaments in all of sports- March Madness.

Sounds Like Apple’s Spring Event Will Be Delayed [Updated]

Or maybe a more fitting title would be Tim Cook Strikes Back

I posted yesterday about Apple’s long-rumored Spring Event featuring new iPad Pros being “delayed.” Based on some information that came out after I wrote that post, it looks like that event wasn’t delayed at all, because it never existed in the first place.

Sounds Like Apple’s Spring Event and the New iPad Pro Will Be Delayed

Apple Event Sept 15, 2020

As I get older, I find fewer reasons to wish for time to fly. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t get a little disappointed when a little bit of Apple gratification is delayed. It looks like that is about to be the case again, as Apple’s Spring Event for the iPad Pro, AirTags and potentially a couple of other devices have likely been pushed back to April.

Trying Out Anker’s PowerCore Magnetic 5K Battery Pack for MagSafe iPhones

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K Battery Pack

After ordering as soon as they became available on Amazon, I guess I was one of the earlier recipients of Anker’s new PowerCore Magnetic 5K MagSafe-compatible battery pack. It came a day before we left for our vacation, which I figured would be the perfect time to try it out.

Pour One Out For the Original HomePod

My family left for a spring break vacation yesterday, so I’ve been a little out of touch. Imagine my surprise when I checked the Apple news this evening and saw that Apple has officially killed off the original HomePod after its rocky three year run.

As expected before an Apple event, the leaks are coming faster now and we’re starting to get a good idea what’s coming this month. According to Jon Prosser a few days ago, that would be the new iPad Pros, AirTags, Apple TV, and you guessed it, updated AirPods. Today’s leak from close to the supply chain paints a familiar picture.

OK Apple, Time to Bring on the New iPad Pro

Magic Keyboard Side

After a month and a half with the iPad Air, I’m ready to go back

I’ve always preferred the 12.9″ iPad Pros since I first bought one in the Summer of 2015. I know it isn’t the most popular size of Apple tablet, but it’s been the perfect one for me. That size screen has only become more useful as Apple has added features to iPadOS and enhanced things like multitasking over the past few years.

Deals: Chargeworx 10,000mAh Power Bank with AirPods Holder

Apple’s AirPods cases are portable enough to put in a regular-size jeans pocket. I’ve gotten used to carrying my AirPods and now AirPods Pro pretty much everywhere with me in said front pocket, along with my keys. However, not everyone has enough room in their pockets to do this all of the time.

It’s About Time For An Apple Pencil Upgrade

Will it arrive this Spring?

For an accessory many thought Apple would never touch after Steve Jobs’ famous comments mocking the stylus, the Apple Pencil has certainly become a mainstay. It has spread from the original iPad Pro to the iPad , the iPad Air updates and even the iPad Mini. It’s pretty much the only thing that all models of the iPad have in common besides iPadOS, even if the compatible model differs between them.
