Apple iPad Event Quick Take- Now They’re Just Showing Off

Apple’s Mac and iPad Event in Brooklyn just ended, so now it’s time to unpack a little of what we got to see. There are plenty of places you can turn to for specs, speeds, and feeds, so I’m not going to bother getting into any of that. There are just my initial impressions of what was announced.

Will iPad Preorders Go Live After the Event Today?

Last Summer at Apple’s annual WWDC Keynote, the company threw us a curveball. An announcement of updated iPad Pros, including a new 10.5″ model, was expected leading up to the event. However, preorders for the new iPads starting immediately after the event was definitely not. I know this took me by surprise.

Details of Apple’s New Pencil Leak Ahead of Tomorrow’s Event

I’ve got to hand it to Ben Geskin. The man waited until the last minute to play his card and ruin a big reveal. Apple had a solid surprise still left in the bag until today and company execs may have thought they were home free…until they weren’t. The Apple Pencil 2 has been rumored off and on, but no real details have come out up until Mr Geskin’s big scoop. Now it looks like we know everything.

Will the New iPad Pro Have Mouse Support?

This question is based more on conjecture about how the coming iPad Pro may work than any hard evidence or major confirmed rumors. Despite that, I think a discussion of mouse support on the iPad Pro is a good thought exercise about how we want to use the device, and where we want Apple to take the platform in the future.

Apple’s iPad Event is Finally Revealed!

Apple finally sent out the invites today, and Tuesday, October 30 is the day. The event is being held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn New York. While this announcement has been the worst kept secret in tech since the iPhone event wrapped with no iPad news, the date is probably the least interesting part of this announcement and invite. Here are a few things that stand out to me:

Lots of New Leaks of the Coming iPad Pros

Several new leaked images of the coming iPad Pros have showed up over the past 24 hours courtesy of Slashleaks and mysmartprice. Not only do they look really good, but they also look dead-on similar to each other and to other recent leaks. The closer we get to an announcement, the more credible these leaks become, so I have very high confidence that these images are the real deal.

How Will USB-C Work on the iPad Pro?

After another round of leaks and software data mining, it looks like the iPad Pro’s rumored switch from a Lightning Port to USB-C is all but confirmed. This shift is a big deal, as it moves the iPad Pro lineup more in line with Apple’s notebook computers than its smartphones. When you consider that the lower-cost iPad still has Lightning, this becomes an even more notable distinction between devices.

The iPhones XS, XS Max, and XR and the Apple Watch Series 4 weren’t all that was announced today. There were just a few other morsels that Tim Cook briefly covered at the end of the event. Continue reading

A Month with the Surface Go: Hardware Design and Build Quality

As I mentioned in a previous post, I picked up the higher end of the two Surface Go models right after release, along with a Type Cover and a Surface Pen. I’ve taken my time with the device, and used it in different situations to try to get a feel for it. Being that I am already a Windows user at work who’s had a Lenovo Yoga (original), Yoga 2, and Yoga 720 spanning the last five years, the experience certainly isn’t unfamiliar. The Yoga has been a very good touchscreen ultrabook line since the original, and I have no complaints with it as a laptop.

The Yogas can also be used as tablets, although that experience certainly leaves something to be desired. Frankly, a LOT to be desired. Ultimately, my ambivalence toward touch on Windows based on my experience with what is a good, high-end touchscreen convertible device kept my interest in Microsoft’s Surface products low over the years.
