iPad Pro - Best Pro Tablet

iPad Pro and Apple Pencil – Made for Each Other

I’ve been using the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil for a couple of weeks now and I absolutely love using them. It hasn’t taken me long to get used to the size of the iPad Pro. Yesterday I picked up my iPad Air 2 and it seemed tiny in my hands. The control you get over the iPad Pro by using the Apple Pencil is amazing. It really comes into its own when you’re using the Apple Pencil for drawing, painting or design work, but you can use it in other applications too. Most of the time, you’ll probably want to just use your fingers for general use of the best pro tablet out there. Keep the marvellous new Apple stylus for the detail and precision work.

Only have a few more videos to make for the Writers Workflow book and I am tempted to just get the book out there anyway and do the videos as time permits later. I do want the books to be the best they can...

Technology is the future

There was a time when to make a phone call I had to go out of the house and head towards the telephone box in the street. I had to put some money into the box once the call was connected. These days we have a phone in the pocket. Not only is it a phone, but it is a computer too. I so wish I could have had technology that is ubiquitous now when I was a young fella. It is being able to look back like this that makes me feel grateful for the lovely tech toys we have a to use now. I sometimes think that the digital natives growing up now just take it all for granted and don’t see the amazing possibilities that might grow from the expansion of technological devices into all parts of our lives.

I want to have home automation making my life easy. It should be simplicity itself to program all sorts of things to happen based on events such arriving back at home. The TVs should turn on and know...
