Tablift is a Twisty Tool that gives Tablets a Lift

When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad, he ushered in the Post-PC era. At the time, I remember thinking how we would no longer need a whole slew of accessories like laptop "pillow desks," monitor stands, keyboard drawers, mouse pads, or mice for that matter! For the most part, that prediction has come true. Many "must-have" accessories focused on desktop computing seem quaint now. Reading e-books in bed is great, but as great and light as the iPad is, it can be cumbersome to hold one for an extended amount of time.



The Apple Watch: What We Got Versus What We Hoped For

image

To say I wasn't overly impressed by the Apple Watch would be an understatement. To say I don't like the Apple Watch would be an overstatement. I get it, the Apple Watch is a huge evolutionary step forward, especially for a company known for making shrewd and cautious moves when it comes to entering new product categories. However, history has led me to have what are perhaps unduly high expectations regarding Apple and their products. So when the Apple Watch was unveiled, and it looked almost identical to the Samsung Gear, and it was dependent on being within 30-feet or so of your iPhone in order to function properly (among many other shortcomings including lack of waterproofness and poor battery life) I was left with the awareness that I'd expected "more" from Apple in terms of what their new smartwatch delivered.

The iPhone 6: World, Meet More

image

When Apple sent out their invitation to today’s event, they said simply: “We wish we could say more,” and included an enlarged Apple logo in the background. Although the choice of the word “more” could have been a cryptical reference to Steve Jobs’ iconic “One more thing” catch phrase, I couldn’t help but suspect that it was more likely a reference to the rumored and highly requested larger iPhone 6. Perhaps it was also alluding to the fact that Apple was planning to unveil a wider range of products on this day than ever before. After years of speculation, months of clues, and weeks of pondering cryptic hints, the day so many of us have been patiently waiting for has arrived. World, meet the new iPhone 6 series. “More” has arrived…
