This will be a bit of a detour from the normal posts. And it might be a surprise to those of you who know me and my affinity for all things Apple.
I use a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. The why is probably best saved for a future post, but the short version is that I wanted a tablet that functioned like an actual computer. I love my iPad, but I can only do so much with it. And Windows 10 isn't _horrible_.
With the Surface, I bought the Microsoft keyboard cover. It isn't _horrible_ either. But I'm not a fan of the trackpad. I guess I've been spoiled by the trackpads on my MacBooks.

AT&T Next basically guarantees I'll upgrade my iPhone every year. I mean, why not? I wasn't _as_ excited this year as in previous years, but I was intrigued by the dual rear camera setup in the 7 Plus. So I stayed up till midnight and... didn't order an iPhone. Apple's website glitched. AT&T's website was barely usable and wouldn't complete a transaction. I told myself I'd just pick one up in a couple of weeks when the chaos died down.Read More
I’ve owned a few different tripod mounts for my iPhone over the years. None of them were all that stable, and all of them have found their way to the Drawer of Despair. All except the RetiCAM.Read More
