  • Apple cancels AirPower wireless charging mat, citing quality issues

    Since it was unveiled, I have wondered about the utility of wireless charging in the home especially if you have an Apple Watch or an iPad Pro in addition to your iPhone.

    For me, the solution is the Anker wired charger with one USB-C output for my iPad Pro and four lightning outputs for my iPhone and the Apple watch puck. 

    Outside the home in a coffee place, placing your iPhone on a mat without wires is fine but for home use, wireless charging is unnecessary. That is my opinion but I would be interested in seeing comments on this subject.

  • Samsung teases first foldable phone in new promo video

    I am trying to think what does folding your phone bring to its usability. I don’t know how thick the folded phone would be but it’s obvious that you reduce the height but increase the thickness. A previous post had it right that for Samsung this is a race to say they were first.

  • Hands on: How to use the ECG app on Apple Watch

    I just did my first ECG after reading many notices that the watch is not able to detect heart attacks. I understand that. I see the watch as an unobtrusive way to monitor my heart while I am occupied with other things. I have no heart illness history but it can’t hurt. Yes I am Jewish.

  • Apple releases USB-C charging cable for Apple Watch

    I don’t understand all this blather about connectors to Apple devices. Apple makes well considered decisions on the type of cable to use on each device. I am sure that they spend lots of time discussing the pros and cons of each connector type. 
    We trust Apple on making many more significant design decisions about the device so why not trust them on the connector decisions.

  • Schiller says Apple & Adobe working on 'really amazing technology' for iPad Pro

    I hope this means that the new iPad Pro announcement is around the corner along with MacBook upgrades.
