March 23rd Sounds Like a Great Day for an Apple Event

Apple Event

There’s a new rumored date for Apple’s spring event, but this time it comes from a source with a real track record. In fact, according to AppleTrack, this leaker is currently at the top of the pile when it comes to Apple rumors.

OK Apple, Time to Bring on the New iPad Pro

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.

So About Apple Coming After Accounts and Services Over Late Apple Card Payments

Apple Card

If you are going to take a big swing at Apple, get your facts straight first.

I saw an interesting story yesterday about a person having some trouble with Apple. That isn’t too uncommon. The story often plays out the same- the little guy is unwittingly, but coldly stepped on by the Big Tech behemoth. It’s an easy sell as a story, and we all know that a negative story about Apple brings the clicks in droves.

Sometimes it’s a simple as that. Apple is a massive company and sometimes massive companies make ill-conceived or purely bureaucratic decisions that hurt their customers. Sometime Apple’s leaders knowingly take up positions that aren’t all that friendly to their users. But what happens when context arrives a day or two after the opening shots and it turns out that things didn’t play out that way?

New iPad Mini Renders Show What Apple Could Be Up To

Or maybe what they should be

There have been a couple of rumors going around about Apple’s coming iPad Mini upgrade. While most of them have centered on a modest update that will retain the Home Button and Lightning Port and look like a 3rd Gen iPad Air, others predict a bigger upgrade that will look more like the current Air. I’m still hoping the latter prevails and these new renders prove to be prophetic.

Review: Charge Fast MagSafe Power Pack

Charge Safe MagSafe Battery Pack

Last week I wrote about being excited to try out a new MagSafe battery pack that was headed my way. That was delayed a while due to a massive snow storm and cold snap that shut down the southern US for over a week. It continued to be delayed this week, as FedEx and UPS both dug out from a week of backed up deliveries. Unfortunately, I also had to work out of town most of this week, so I wasn’t home when the new rebranded Charge Fast MagSafe Power Pack finally arrived.

The New iMac Renders Look Back to the Golden Age of Apple Design

The main thing that made Apple stand out from the rest of the personal computing market during the early parts of the company’s recovery and rise in the late 90s and early 2000s was design. We saw it in their first big hit after the return of Steve Jobs with the original iMac. Those machines brought a style and sense of fun that no other computer company could match for years.

Deals: HAVIT Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad

If you spend time with a laptop in your lap, then you know how hot they can get, especially after extended use. Even if you aren’t talking about your lap, a notebook running long enough can heat up if ventilation is less than perfect and it’s under heavy use. This is especially true of gaming or high-end work laptops.
