I'm An Outgoing Introvert

I have no issue with sharing myself and my life in person or online. I have a job in sales, I podcast all the time, yet there is something you may not know about me - I am actually really introverted.

🎙 Bring Your Own Device 75

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

I Was Going To Write A Blog Post

Except I didn’t, I sat at my desk and turned on my iPad. Open up Drafts and simply typed a few words into the endless posts I have been working on for ages and then opened Twitter. The same Twitter I have been staring at for 20mins previously, before getting...

The iPad Pro’s are not cheap, by any stretch of the imagination. They are also, potentially, almost too powerful for what you can do with them right now. These two points, however, go hand in hand. The hardware is only half of the equation. Yes, they are quite expensive for a tablet, but they are also priced quite well when you consider it as a laptop.

Now People that actually use an iPad will begin to tell you what the difference these upgrades make to their usage. Andy’s thoughts mirror most of my own and almost make me want to write a post.

The hardware is only part of the equation - and when looked at individually the upgrades aren’t huge. However I have found that the whole package together makes a huge difference to me that it’s hard to put my finger on one thing.

If I Had To Pick One Device

With all the drama surrounding iPad reviews circling again I posed myself a little thought experiment. When all is said and done, and I could only choose one device to ‘work on’ forever - what device would it be?

🔗 The iPad Pro Review | TechCrunch

Microsoft still hasn’t been able (come at me) to ever get it through their heads that they needed to start by cutting the head off of their OS and building tablet first, then walking backwards. I think now Microsoft is probably much more capable than then Microsoft, but that’s probably another whole discussion.

Apple went and cut the head off of OS X at the very beginning, and has been very slowly walking in the other direction ever since. But the fact remains that no Surface Pro has ever offered a tablet experience anywhere near as satisfying as an iPad’s.

Yes, it may offer more flexibility, but it comes at the cost of unity and reliably functionality. Just refrigerator toasters all the way down.

This is by far the best sim up of my stance for the iPad. I know I am a little bias towards using the device full time - but Apple have taken the correct approach in my opinion. They get a lot of stick for the OS not being able to do ‘normal’ computer tasks.

Yet I would much rather have a touch OS that makes steady improvements of its ability than a desktop OS made to accept touch input. Things will improve again come WWDC and the narrative will change again.
