My Thoughts on Apple’s iPhone X Event

This week Apple held its usual fall product announcement event. We’ll get to the products themselves in just a moment, but first I want to talk about the event itself, and more specifically, the venue in which it was held. This was the first Apple keynote event held on its new “spaceship campus” known as…

Update on My Whereabouts in 2017

It’s been quite a while since I blogged on this website, so I figured I owed to my readers to give you an idea of where I’ve been, where I am, and where I’m going in the future. Many of you know me from my YouTube days and also from my work at Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning….

Opinion: Apple Hasn’t Lost Its Way, But It Has Changed Its Direction

I’m seeing a lot of the usual “doom and gloom” articles that follow an Apple product release. We saw it after the original Apple Watch announcement. We saw it after the recent iPhone 7/7 Plus announcement(s). And now, maybe more than ever, we’re seeing it after the latest MacBook Pro announcement. What people don’t seem…

There Are No Magic Bullets

In each one of the online courses I produce I encourage those who watch it to reach out to me via email or social media. I love hearing from the people who consume my content. It gives me an idea of how I’m doing, and what I could be doing better. Over the past year…

My Thoughts On the iPhone 7 Event

Yesterday Apple held an event where they unveiled new iPhone and Apple Watch hardware. As I’m sure you’re already aware, Apple made some interesting choices with the iPhone 7, and as usual the internet is nothing short of opinionated on the matter. Here are all of the important announcements from that event and my thoughts…

Choosing Images for Your Content is One of the Most Important Decisions You Can Make

Choosing Images for Your Content is One of the Most Important Decisions You Can Make

I recently read an article that discussed how Netflix experimented with different types of image thumbnails for its content in order to drive consumption.

In this article I will outline 10 things that I want Adobe to…

After 24 Hours, I’m Probably Going to Return My iPad Pro

After 24 Hours, I’m Probably Going to Return My iPad Pro

Like many of the Apple faithful, I spent Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 feverishly refreshing the Apple website and mobile app in hopes of scoring an iPad Pro on launch day. Luckily for me I was able to get in (seemingly) before anyone else at around 2:03AM Central Time. The checkout process was flawless as always,…

I Went Hands On with the iPad Pro… Here are My First Impressions

Last week at the Adobe MAX conference I was invited to a special event that was held by Adobe and Apple. At this event I was given the opportunity to try out the new iPad Pro. There were a lot of people at this event, so I didn’t get a ton of time to review…

3D Touch is the Killer Feature of the iPhone 6s

I’ve had my new iPhone 6s for a few weeks now, and while there are a lot of cool things to talk about, the one feature that I “geek out” over is 3D Touch. Admittedly, this is a surprise to me because I never really understood what 3D Touch was supposed to do or why it…
