When I bought my iPad Pro (the big one) last fall, I really wasn't sure if it would fit nicely into my needs for an iOS device. I gave my iPad Air to my wife who really needed an upgrade from her iPad 2 which she inherited long ago when I purchased the iPad 3. I also gave my iPad mini 2 to my son and daughter-in-law which left me iPad-less. → Read the rest
Great discovery by Katie Floyd, one half of the Mac Power Users Podcast on the mysterious battery drain of new iPads:
After additional investigation I discovered the iPad was consuming power normally when active, but was draining more power than expected when in sleep or standby mode. What was the cause? In my case, I’ve narrowed it down to Ping, Apple’s nearly forgotten “social network for music.” Like all good Apple geeks I checked out Ping when it was first introduced and setup an account, but I haven’t touched it since.
I recently ordered the Jawbone JAMBOX from Amazon after hearing a number of Podcasters that I listen to frequently rave about its sound quality and simplicity. Jawbone, well-known maker of a number of wireless bluetooth headsets, describes it JAMBOX product as:
It’s simply the smallest, best sounding wireless speaker and speakerphone on the planet.
JAMBOX delivers stunning hi-fi audio in a portable wireless speaker so compact you won’t believe it when you hear it.
I have been using a Drobo since version 1 – the one that had only USB 2.0 connections and required that you install it to a computer, either Mac or Windows. I also have a version 2 that connects via Firewire 800, Firewire 400, or USB 2.0. The second version seems to run cooler with the internal fan kicking in much less often.
We recently bought a MacBook Air for Carrie. She loves it and I want it!
I have been putting this off for a long time. It lives as a task on my to do list and I have some sticky note reminders. What is it? It is my review of the Kindle 2 from Amazon. It’s not that I don’t like the Kindle. It’s not that I don’t enjoy writing and posting reviews.
I like computer bags! No, I mean really like computer bags. My problem is that I never seem to find the right bag for my needs. Once upon a time, I had a Timbuk2 bag, Commute, for my Mac Powerbook 12″. I really liked that bag and it met all of my needs.
Fast forward to 2009.
