Is Apple Done Releasing Hardware for 2019?

A week ago yesterday, Apple announced their new AirPods Pro with a press release and got the tech world talking. For those of us who ordered early enough or found them in stock, they arrived just a few days later. It was easy to assume they wouldn’t be the only new Apple items released before the Christmas shopping season, either, as Apple rolled out a few new items over consecutive days back in the Spring via press releases.

Is Apple Teaming Up With Valve to Create Their AR Glasses?

Back on October 9th, 9to5Mac ran a story detailing a report from Ming-Chi Kuo that said Apple was developing their AR Glasses in partnership with “third party brands.” This certainly sounded strange, as it is highly unlike Apple to work with others in the development of new hardware. With so little context, it was hard to tell what Kuo was really getting at with his vague comment.

However, today Digitimes brought us new details that may shed additional light on this subject. According to them, Apple is working in partnership with well-known game developers and Steam platform creators Valve to bring its AR Glasses to market. That’s certainly new and different.

Apple TV+’s For All Mankind Impressed Me

The reviews came in over the last week (and many of them weren’t kind), but Apple TV+ finally arrived for the rest of us yesterday. I got home from work late, so I was only able to check out one show after signing up for my free trial.

Out of the opening lineup of shows, For All Mankind is really the only one that stands out as something I would be interested in, so I decided to start there. I will take a look at the others later, but I actually wanted to see watch this show and I wasn’t disappointed. If you are worried about spoilers below, don’t be. I’ll keep it general.

Tips and Tricks: Managing Space While Using Apple Arcade

I tried Apple Arcade starting day one and I’m already a big fan. There was a really solid list of games available at release and Apple has kept new content steadily trickling out in the month since. For the wide variety and quality of the games, Apple Arcade is worth every penny of $4.99 a month. The one downside of such a service- it can fill up a 64 GB Apple device quickly.

However, when I checked the tracking info after leaving work, low and behold they were out for delivery and headed my way.

Apple’s AirPods Pro Arrive With More Goodies Likely To Come Soon

Apple has the greatest timing with these things. If they are going to drop a product out of the clear blue sky with a press release, I always know for certain it will be a day when I’m slammed at work…just like today. I did finally see that they had revealed the AirPods Pro around 3 hours late and got my order in. I am supposed to get mine on 10/31, which is a day late, but not too bad, I guess.

Apple Pencil Patents Point to Interesting Future Possibilities

I tested more capacitive styli than I care to remember back in the early years of the iPad. I always loved the idea of using a tablet as capable as Apple’s as a digital drawing pad or notebook. However, those early products, no matter how good or expensive, always had tradeoffs associated with them and were usually exercises in frustration.

As such, once the Apple Pencil was released, I was all over it. Apple’s own stylus was a perfect match with the iPad Pro, with virtually no latency, accurate pressure sensitivity and a smooth and easy stroke. I may not be an artist, but you don’t have to be to take advantage of its versatility paired with a compatible iPad.
