Review: UAG Metropolis for the 2019 iPad Air

I reviewed UAG’s Metropolis cases for the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pros earlier this year and came away very impressed with both. I can give the 12.9″ version even higher praise in that I am still using it as my primary case over four months later. It is good at home, but even better at work where I need more drop protection. In my opinion, both models check all the boxes that a good iPad Pro case should.

Photo Source: New York Times

So Google has seen the light on privacy, or so they tell us. Sundar Pichai spent a LOT of very valuable stage time during the Google I/O Keynote trying to shift the narrative that they are only interested in Hoovering up as much user data as possible and convince us that they have turned over a new leaf.

The Yin and Yang of the Galaxy Fold

Many Apple fans are enjoying sitting back and watching Samsung squirm their way through a disastrous product launch…again. You can’t excuse the sloppiness of the Galaxy Fold and how rushed it was in the race to be first to market. An attempt to be innovative isn’t enough to cover up the hardware failures and suspect design.

No more so than when fans of Samsung’s products throw stones at Apple for playing it safe or for iterating on or polishing up existing features. In truth, there is good and bad to both company’s approaches.
