Would be interesting to get Jon Hicks one of the new Brydge Keyboards that is coming out for review. I would be interested in seeing him review one of those with his current paradigm.
I am looking at migrating older relatives off of their computers and onto something a bit more maintenance free so I am interested in articles and blogs that delve into the practicalities of using the iPad appliances as main computing devices.
I’ve been transitioning to having the iPad Pro as my main computer as well, I just need to get a keyboard for it. I have a couple of iPad-specific articles you might find helpful: Pro Apps and Web Apps.
