Andrew Orr and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on Apple’s announcements at its “Let’s take a field trip” media event.
True to the rumors, Apple unveiled a new 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support during its “Let’s take a field trip” media event on Tuesday.
What are the best devices released by Apple in the past few years? That’s a pretty subjective list, so I asked the TMO staff what they thought, and the answers were pretty interesting.
In this episode, Bryan Chaffin leads Jeff Gamet down into the ugly underbelly of FSM, or Fidget Spinner Madness. You can blame Mitsubishi if you want. They also talk about what TMO’s staff thinks were recent great Apple products and read the WWDC tea leaves. Does the WWDC website really mean anything?
Redditor u/flashnet needed an Apple Pencil case, so they made one themselves using a 3D printer. They tried existing designs but ran into trouble with the magnets it used. So this one—called iCICLE—screws together. There are plenty of Apple Pencil sleeves on the market, including ones that Apple sells. But the cases I’ve seen are bulky, and they would take up a lot of space in your bag. The iCICLE is slim and has a minimal design that Jony Ive would be proud of. In fact, it was inspired by Johnny, the Apple Pencil case on Indiegogo. Unfortunately the product didn’t get fully funded. The iCICLE is a close approximation, and if you happen to have a 3D printer, you can download the files on Thingiverse.
“In some examples, an acoustic touch sensing system can be configured to be insensitive to contact on the device surface by water…”
Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to look at what may be in store for the MacBook Pro in 2018, plus they talk about Apple’s target audience for the iPad Pro and the tablet’s place in the educational market.
The iPad is a great note taking tool for classes and meetings, so it’s only fitting to find a lot of really great note taking apps for Apple’s tablet. The Mac Observer rounded up some of our favorites to help you pick the one that’s best for you.
If you have an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and want to quickly jot a note you don’t need to unlock your tablet first.
Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to talk about the possibility of an iPhone Apple Pencil, plus they look at Disney’s new Movies Anywhere service.
A report says Apple has an iPhone stylus in the works and we’ll see it in 2019. I don’t think so.
This fall will be a great time to take a real hard look at IPad possibilities.
It took 18 months to finally show up in the refurbished store, but those who need a new Apple Pencil can now save a bit of money by buying refurbished straight from Apple.
This includes some benchmarks from Geekbench 4 and PerformanceTest Mobile, as well as my experiments with Apple Pencil.
John Kheit does an iPad Pro 12.9-inch shootout for the 2015 and 2017 models. He shows how much Apple Pencil lags on each iPad, and does some benchmarking with Geekbench 4, as well as a drive speed utility.
It may not have been a big enough announcement to make the Worldwide Developer Conference keynote, but the new Apple Pencil Case is still pretty cool.
Splitting the check, making your EarPods or AirPods fit better, and pen-based note-taking are just the Cool Stuff Found segment. Then your two favorite geeks talk you through fixing Wi-Fi connection issues on both your iPhone and your Mac, and also help you choose the right speed plan from your ISP. That’s not all, though, and you’ll hear much more when you press play (just do it!).
Pad & Quill launched a new line of leather and wood desk accessories aimed at Apple users. This includes a leather desk pad ($174.95), a leather mouse pad ($49.95), and a Wooden Apple Pencil Holder ($39.95). I like Pad & Quill’s products, and I definitely like leather and wood. This product line jumped out at me—now if I could only have a desk that was neat and tidy enough for such things. Everything is discounted for the introduction at the above-mentioned prices, and there are other products in the series, too.
