Asking whether the iPad is a computer is a debate that has raged online ever since the very first device with good arguments either way. With the first iPad, critics did have a good point that it was a primarily a consumption device and even today the iPad mini size…

I have been using iOS 15 for about a week now and have really grown to love the new feature. At first I installed it only on my iPhone and iPad, but after having it less than twelve hours I risked my sanity and installed the betas on my Watch…


I have been using Microsoft Teams for a couple of years now and the last year has really expanded our use of it within our college and the wider campus community. The best way I describe Microsoft Teams at this point is that its an operating system for work, being…


Unbidden thoughts after late night Ted Lasso and Twitter

I’ve been working in IT for a while now and every now and then I run into the Endpoint support specialist or System Administrator who thinks they’re smart stuff. I mean, who wouldn’t in 2021 when software has eaten the world and most people joke that people who work in…

Aubie joining me on a Teams call with our IT staff

The last 15 months…has been a LOT. Global pandemic, , wild fires, hurricanes, Tiger King, and probably other horrors that I cannot recall. Everyone has been through a LOT. Everyone live through the same constantly stream of doom and more connected, but more distant that I can ever remember being…


The iPad Pro in the Magic Keyboard case

So, this week was WWDC and there seem to be a LOT of angry people about iPadOS in my circles and I don’t really get it. I mean, I get what a vocal minority of people want: MacOS on the iPad Pro and/or floating windows as a way to “solve”…
