  • iPadOS 16.2 Beta 4 Breaks AirPlay

    If you’re running iPadOS 16.2 Beta, don’t upgrade to version 4 as it breaks AirPlay to devices when you’re connected to an external display. Once you’ve updated to Beta 4 and try to AirPlay to external speakers iPadOS tells you that you can’t use AirPlay while connected to an external display. If this persists it […]

  • DON’T buy the 12.9″ iPad Pro

    DON’T buy the 12.9″ iPad Pro

    I’ve been a enthuiastic 12.9″ iPad Pro user since the 2018 iPad Pro came out. Prior to that device I’d owned many iPad versions but they were mainly content consumption devices. I did a bit of blogging on them, I even tried my hand at coding with the 9.7″ iPad Pro, but ultimately there was…

  • iPadOS 16 is Bad

    iPadOS 16 is Bad

    We’re on the cusp of iPadOS 16.1 coming out on Monday and I couldn’t care less. iPadOS 16 is a big bag of…meh in the feature department. Sure I was excited about Stage Manager, but then they took away the only feature that improved working on an iPad. Stage Manager No, Stage Manager wasn’t the…

  • Most of the Apps Jeff Uses on the iPad aren’t from Apple

    From Jeff: I used to flame people on Twitter for saying that the iPad wasn’t a “real computer,” but as I step further away from my iPad, the less I feel like it was ever meant to be a primary computing device. I love my iPad Pro (11″ 2020 model), and I use it for…

  • I Agree, The iPad Kind of Sucks

    From Greg: Following yesterday’s meagre offering following 18 months of development, the time has come. The iPad sucks now, and that’s a real shame. Much like Greg, I used to be the guy that raved about the iPad all the time. I even spent months using a 10” iPad Pro as my main coding machine. Also…

  • Which iPad is Best for Video Editors?

    Which iPad is Best for Video Editors?

    If you already have an iPad that is still getting software updates than you’ve got something fast enough to get started. Yes newer models will be faster, but to get started just work on producing more videos and getting good at the craft of it. Don’t spend money on an iPad “for video” that you…

  • 2022 Focused iPad Desk with iPadOS 16

    2022 Focused iPad Desk with iPadOS 16

    While I spent a number of years doing everything I could to do all my work on my iPad, eventually it seemed like I was fighting the iPadOS more than getting any work done. Once in a while I’d grab a second monitor from my macOS setup and use my iPad with an external monitor…

  • Apple Watch Ultra vs Garmin – I Don’t Think Apple Pundits Get it

    I keep seeing takes like this one from Gruber and I’m not sure that they get the category they’re talking about. I am the owner of a Garmin Enduro (1 not the 2 linked in the article). I am the owner of a Garmin Edge 1030Plus for cycling. The Apple Watch Ultra is interesting, but…

  • Stage Manager – Productivity Boost – With Some Problems

    Stage Manager – Productivity Boost – With Some Problems

    I’m usually a Public Beta guy when it comes to iPadOS. While I don’t make most of my money from writing or YouTube, I use my iPad as my preferred computer when I don’t have to write code. Public Beta is usually more stable than what comes before it and that makes it stable enough…

  • Mac Mini Portable…with a Screen

    While this Mac Mini seems totally impractical to me, it is also excellent.
