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
I recently purchased the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad 2 and New iPad. I have been toting around the Apple Bluetooth keyboard and I like it, but it still is one extra item to carry around and the prospect of a cover keyboard combination really intrigued me.
The Logitech keyboard is well reviewed online and I continued to hear high recommendations on several podcasts that I listen to.→ Read the rest

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.
Tip of the hat to Tim Challies for the link.

All good books on preaching start with a section on the character of the preacher. I tip my hat at this noble practice by reminding you that if you brandish your iPad to complement the trendy hipster image you are carefully cultivating like a hidden hydroponic hemp garden, know this: God knows your heart, and your people will soon smell the stale odor of your pretentiousness.
I just received my new Tom Bihn Ristretto bag for the Macbook Air. I purchased an STM Scout from Amazon shortly after I bought my MBA in April. The Scout is a fantastic bag for carrying both the MBA and the iPad. My only problem with the STM bag is the lack of space for extras like pens, earphones, etc.→ Read the rest
Friday morning, 2:50 a.m., the alarm on my iPhone began plunking out the opening measures of Clocks by Coldplay, my alarm ringtone of choice. Normally I wake up a bit foggy but this time I had a mission to accomplish so I sprang out of bed – well, rather, I rose fluidly from bed and made my way to the office next door.→ Read the rest
Like many other iPad owners with a Squarespace hosted blog, I have been anxiously waiting for the iPad app for Squarespace. The iPhone app is very nice but reasonable mostly for checking and approving comments, etc. Now with the iPad app, I can very realistically post with some regularity to Quawkle using my iPad. Thanks for a free Christmas present, Squarespace!→ Read the rest
