Apple put out a number of great products this year. The latest entrant is one that I have not seen, and will likely never be able to put through its paces. I am refering to the Mac Pro released just days ago. Though it does not win this year's award, it is an example of how great the offerings were.

When the iPad first hit the scene, I decided to give it a try as a writing machine. I developed a small amount of competence at it, but it would never replace a keyboard for me. When third party keyboards started arriving, I jumped at the chance, and never looked back. I still practiced on glass on and off. But I never found it comparable. The iPad Air is starting to make me rethink my aversion to typing on glass.

Last Tuesday, Apple announced new iPads. That is always a good time to take a long, hard look at your current iPad, and reevaluate your life. Personally, my decision is easy. I made it a while back, even before the announcement. As much as I like the mini, I've decided that I like the bigger screen even better. I have already sold the household's two, iPad minis. I was prepared to buy the base model of whatever full-sized iPad Apple announced. If the decision is not quite as easy for you, read on.


During the run-up to last month's iPhone event, I posted a number of stories and predictions that turned out to be spot on. I have been an industry watcher for years, so I have learned to spot the difference between real information and fakes. The iPad event is almost upon us, and it is time for me to gaze into the future and tell you what is about to be wrought upon the world.
