Apple AirPods: One month in

Early days with the Apple Pencil

I'm not ashamed to say I spent an inordinate amount of my Saturday evening playing with a pencil. The new Apple Pencil, combined with my iPad Pro 9.7".

iPad anticipation

My new iPad Pro 9.7" is out for delivery. It's arriving some time tomorrow and, as we all know, Apple device days can drag horribly. On the one hand, if it arrives early in the morning, it'll be difficult concentrate on work while that pristine white box lies next to me on the desk. I'll ...
