GoodTask 3 - Supercharge Apple Reminders

For longer than I care to remember, or admit to, I have been searching for the perfect task manager. I am definitely not alone in the feeling that there wasn’t a service that seemed to fit. Todoist almost got there, Things 3 is pretty good, but no service ticked all the boxes and I went backwards and forwards between them more than a handful of times. Thankfully I think I’ve...

Here are the five biggest iPad Pro problems, because no device is perfect →

The iPad Pro packs in an astounding amount of processing power, doubling the benchmark scores of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro in multiple tests, and even exporting a 4K HEVC video in less than half the time. Here’s the issue: that power is going to waste.

I agree with some of the points in this post, but I don’t really see a downside here. Many apps don’t take advantage of the power, they simply don’t need to. But is this really a ‘problem’?

The Big iPad | Matt Gemmell →

Also, be extremely skeptical of anyone who makes a judgement about switching to an iPad when they haven’t actually done it themselves (this goes for most judgements about most things throughout life). This group includes the apparent majority of tech journalists, most of whom seem to have an annual ritual of spending one week with the newest iPad, and then saying it’s not a laptop replacement yet in some general sense. How would you even know? I certainly didn’t until six months or so in.

This is dead on correct. I have fallen out of faith with many reviews on tech sites. This doesn’t just refer to iPad reviews, but it has increased the frustration. How can you review something like the iPad without actually using it for a serious amount of time. Posting a review of a different phone each week is one thing, but not actually using a whole other system and drawing a judgement is the wrong take.

I appreciate that the iPad is polarising bit of tech, and I am more than slightly bias. It’s not a computer for everyone - but it might be for you if you actually TRY!

The iPad Smart Keyboard

I could never work out what was so magic about Apple’s Keyboard, nor the mouse to a lesser extent. It didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, didn’t wow me with features and certainly didn’t do any magic, bar make your bank balance smaller. At least the Smart Keyboard was reasonably smart. Not in a literal sense, it didn’t actually learn anything but it looked kind of cool and folded...

What's a professional?

Nati tells Greg about his weird dream about being late to recording, and also how he enjoyed Maniac on Netflix. Greg, which was late to recording the podcast, gets his personal podcast on iTunes.

We also talk about the new iPad Pro, as Greg gives his thoughts about the future of computing, whether the iPad still falls between the Notebook and the smartphone, and his worries that Apple will over-complicate the iPad.

In addition, Nati explains to Greg why Apple will stop revealing unit sales and how it actually makes sense
