It isn’t the first time that Apple responds inappropriate. Is there anything important you have to tell us Dan Riccio?

Thanks for your clear statement Michael.





The iPad, a laptop replacement?

27 12 2018

The tech scene and even Apple isn’t sure about the answer.

• As a professional user, I want the ability to see and organise all of my files on my device without needing to visit specific applications, or be connected to iCloud. It’s not possible with the app FILES. Apple still didn’t implement a full file system into iOS. Files in app-specific folders increase redundancy and that’s a step back into the Middle Ages of computing.

• Craig Federighi, SVP of software engineering at Apple, told the magazine Wired:

“We really feel that the ergonomics of using a Mac are that your hands are rested on a surface, and that lifting your arm up to poke a screen is a pretty fatiguing thing to do.”

Federighi’s quote is exactly why the iPad needs more inputs methods – particularly the mouse and trackpad, two of the most traditional and popular input methods in the history of computing.

• And touchscreens, while fun, are not as precise as mice or trackpads. The Apple Pencil is designed to solve this issue of precision, and it is extremely precise, but it doesn’t solve the issue of fatigue.

Thanks for dropping by.





The pros

31 10 2018

An interesting review

about the fastest mobile device after the legendary Porsche 911 from the guys of 🎩/t Slashgear.

Both, the 911 and the new 2018 iPad Pros, are not only design but also technology tidbits. Sadly they’re also premium, I mean not the cheapest of their class. But they’re very durable and you’ll have fun with them for many years.

Enjoy …

The 2018 iPad Pro

Thanks.

Btw, the consumer version of Google+ will shut down in 2019 and I would like to invite you to my group Apple iThings on the next-gen network MeWe, a new home for lots of G+ refugees.

Apple iThings, a great place for you

See you. Thanks.
