Is the iPad Pro Worth it?

Much of the usability portion of this review applies to the 2018’s redesigned iPad Pro. For more, please jump to the last section of this post titled ‘The new 2018 iPad Pro – is it worth it?’

The professor in the class was talking about how the film industry came out to be. We were watching some of the first films that were commercially released by Lumiere Brothers.

At one point, he said that people were blown away by watching motion pictures on the screen. Some even left the theater in fear when an oncoming train was shown on the display. It was so magical that the actual magicians’ business began to take a nosedive.

The keyword here is ‘magical.’

That led me to think, what ‘magical’ invention have I seen in my lifetime? And will there be any more?

I can’t answer the second question, but I think I know the answer to the first one.

Apple Keyboards Compared: The best and worst keyboard made by Apple

Some people are obsessed with cameras. Some can’t get enough of smartphones. Some have a lot of watches while others are fascinated by the good old pen. I’m obsessed with keyboards, and not the ones that are musical instruments.

My life with computer started in what’s known as cyber cafes that charged hourly for accessing the web. Those were some really bad computers with beat up keyboards.

Apple AirPods Review – Costly Convenience

There’s one thing common in all the Apple products — they’re all expensive. It holds true for pretty much everything Apple has ever released. Whether the extra money you pay is worth it, however, is a different question.

There’s a reason I started the post with this point. Today’s topic of the post is Apple AirPods — the first-ever wireless earbuds that the Cupertino giant has released. As soon as it was announced, people flocked to the comment section of YouTube and news sites to express how crazy expensive it was. I didn’t join them, but in secret, I had agreed with them.

Over a year later, my pocket proudly holds a pair of Apple AirPods in the charging case that they came with. I’m not enough of an audiophile to keep listening to music all day, but my small selection of Spotify playlists now play through Apple’s AirPods more often than anything else.
