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

How to Prepare for iOS 10

In just a few hours Apple will be releasing iOS 10, the latest version of its mobile operating system that powers devices like iPads and iPhones. While Apple has made it super easy to update your devices via OTA updates, there are still some things you should do prior to hitting that download button. In this

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

iPad Pro Review

For the past two years there has been a lot of speculation about whether or not Apple would release a large-scale version of its iPad devices. I can remember very distincly the feeling I had when I first heard about this product, and it was one of pure joy. I have wanted a light-weight device

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.

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

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

My Thoughts on Apple’s “Hey Siri” Event

Apple just wrapped its latest product announcements, so I thought I’d hop on my blog and write up a few of my first impressions. There’s a lot to talk about, as you might’ve guessed, so this blog post might be a little heavy in the word count department. Overall I’m pretty excited about what was announced

How a Single Tweet Made Me an Apple Customer for Life

We’ve all had that moment of frustration with a piece of electronics or software. You know the feeling. Something that is advertised to just work, doesn’t, and you get pissed off enough to rant about it on social media. Well, last week that happened to me when I encountered a problem with my Apple Watch. The digital

Revising My Stance on the Apple Watch

Last week I wrote a not-so-nice piece about how Apple had “lost its way” with the release of the Apple Watch Edition. While this was precisely how I felt at the time, now that I’ve had time to reflect, research, and understand why the Apple Watch Edition exists, I’m revising my stance. How I Feel
