Apparently I never wrote about switching from Canon to Sony?! Let's fix that. I got my first Canon back in 1988. It was an AE-1 and I loved it. I shot through rolls and rolls of film. I took a class from a photo place in town and shot school sports, portraits, wildlife, weather--anything I … Continue reading Alpha

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the Apple Mouse

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_.

Since I have a nest of Apple Magic Mice roaming around my office, I wanted to use one of them instead of going out and buying a new mouse.

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.

If you're familiar with IFTTT, you'll have no problem creating recipes that integrate with Automatic. I have one recipe that logs each trip to … Continue reading Tracking Business Mileage with Automatic
