More Evidence that an Apple Event is Coming Soon

Photo Source: SlashLeaks

I was starting to wonder about whether Apple might pass on a Fall event this year. Last week there was a Ming-Chi Kuo report claiming that Apple would have a new iPad Pro in the first quarter next year, which would line up with the usual 16-18 month cycle that the device has kept to since release. Considering the lack of iPad Pro hardware leaks, this one made me wonder. Then Neil Cybart tweeted Apple’s event announcement timeframes over the last few years a couple of days ago and we are now outside of the shortest one, which was 11 days.

Living With the Apple Watch Series 5: Starting from Scratch


It’s been several days and I have been very happy with my new Apple Watch so far. The performance is great. The always on screen is useful. I absolutely love the look and feel of the stainless steel model and don’t have any buyer’s remorse there. Everything else is just as you would expect. However, battery life is still just ok.

Apple Arcade is Starting to Restore My Interest in Mobile Gaming

 

I’ve always been the busy sort. I’ve never tended to have tons of free time and always have plenty to do. However, lately I’ve been crazy busy even by my own standards. As such, there hasn’t been a lot of time for gaming over the last year. However, even when there was, it’s been a long time since I was doing much of anything on mobile.

Deals: myGEKOgear’s MagiClaw Smartphone & Camera Mount

I’ve been through more device mounts in my time using PDAs and smartphones than I can count. Most of them lasted between two to four months and broke down like the cheap plastic they were made of. Between the high heat of Summer and the brief but real cold of the Winter, life is hard hanging out in a vehicle in the Mid South.

Tim Cook’s Hypocrisy Comes Home to Roost

I will state up front that, despite the title of this article, I am not looking to stray into a political discussion here. I will say that I don’t personally agree with the stances that Apple is taking in regards to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, but I do understand them. Like all companies, Apple and its CEO are responsible to their shareholders, which puts them in some difficult situations. I also understand that Apple’s business there is part of a much bigger and more complex situation that involves many large US and Western corporations, spans decades, and can’t be easily unraveled.

Living With the iPhone 11 Pro Max: This Battery Life Something Else

So I finally had an opportunity to push the battery life of my iPhone 11 Pro Max last weekend. I had to work both Saturday and Sunday out of town, a habit that has unfortunately become very common as of late. An eight hour day on a hot roof will really wear a guy out, so I was pretty gassed by the time I got back to my hotel room after dinner Saturday night.
