It’s a War out There

Yesterday, Bloomberg reported that Apple stores in the U.S. will begin reopening during the first half of April. I’m sorry, that’s not acceptable. They should start back today. Or by Easter, at least. If fixing a MacBook Air or iPhone is not an essential business, nothing is. #Joke

These retailers will get your iPads and MacBooks to you sooner than Amazon

If you've been hunting for one of Apple's recently released devices (the iPad Pro or MacBook Air) or are just after a pair of AirPods, finding them right now is a hard task. Not only have Apple Stores and third-party retailers closed brick and mortar locations, but Amazon is now primarily focusing on shipping essential items (toilet paper, Lysol wipes, Purell and other household items) so getting other products will take a while. But we all have our own definition of what is essential.

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. Traveling domestically and internationally to event locations around the world or our offices in San Francisco, New York and London. Every moment of every day that I wasn’t at my home desk, the iPad Pro was my main portable machine. I made the switch on a trip to Brazil for our conference and Startup Battlefield competition (which was rad, by the way, a computer visio...

The new iPad Pro is another major step forward in Apple's plan to challenge Microsoft's Surface Pro (AAPL, MSFT)

Apple's new iPad Pro will support a key feature the iPad has been missing: mouse and trackpad compatibility. This addition is another sign that Apple is turning the iPad Pro into a real laptop alternative, much like Microsoft's Surface tablet. Apple has added many features to the iPad over the years that have made it better at multitasking, but mouse support was the one missing piece it needed to serve as a viable productivity device. It's an acknowledgement that Microsoft was on the right tra...
