Review: 100,000 miles and one week with an iPad Pro –

For the past eighteen months the iPad Pro has been my only machine away from home, and until recently I was away from home a lot.

Does coronavirus need a brand? –

Stay with me here. As we enter the full throes of coronavirus spread in the US, it’s becoming incredibly evident that we cannot depend on the Federal apparatus to clearly communicate any of the necessary information citizens need. From the CDC removing exact testing numbers from its site to the President saying it would just […] → Read More

Sundance: In Miss Americana, Taylor Swift demotes the Internet –

In nearly a decade of attending Sundance, I’ve never seen a scene like the premiere of the documentary Miss Americana, detailing the last year and a half or so of Taylor Swift’s life.

Apple Card users can now download monthly transactions in a spreadsheet

One of the big questions I got around the time the Apple Card launched was whether you’d be able to download a file of your transactions to either work with manually or import into a piece of expenses management software. The answer, at the time, was no. Now Apple is announcing that Apple Card users […] → Read More

MacBook Pro 16” first impressions: Return of the Mack –

In poker, complacency is a quiet killer. It can steal your forward momentum bit by bit, using the warm glow of a winning hand or two to cover the bets you’re not making until it’s too late and you’re out of leverage. Over the past few years, Apple’s MacBook game had begun to suffer from […] → Read More

Let’s get this out of the way right up front: iPhone 11’s Night Mode is great.
