Favorite WWDC 2018 Announcements

WWDC 2018

And just like that Apple’s much-anticipated WWDC is over! I think overall it was a solid conference with some great features that are coming to Apple users across the board whether you are an iPhone user, Mac user, Watch user or all three. I think we all have something good to take away from this and get excited for what is to come this fall! After running through everything that was discussed, I rounded up my 4 favorite announcements and explained why I think they are so important. Read more about my opinion below!

I Hate iOS 11’s Control Center

This past fall Apple released iOS 11 to everyone who owned a compatible iOS device. And while it offered lots of useful features like “Do Not Disturb While Driving” or the ability to change the brightness of the flashlight, as a whole I still think it’s lacking in one major area: the control center.

What Happened to Tablets?

When you take a look back even 2-3 years ago you’ll find that tablets were still popular and many people still bought them. Not only that but companies besides Apple were still making enough of a profit to continue selling them, most notably Google and Samsung. Now in 2018 it seems like the tablet market has shrunk dramatically to the point where it’s basically Amazon and Apple as the two main players. Google’s last tablet was the Pixel C which launched in 2015 and was removed from the store earlier this year. Samsung on the other hand still sells tablets, but production has taken a hit. What happened to the market? What happened to the competition? I’ll go more in-depth now! Continue reading “What Happened to Tablets?”

Favorite Tech Feature

With so many smartphones being announced left and right, I thought I would take a moment to see how they have evolved over the past couples years and highlight one key feature that I absolutely love. In fact I might even make this a yearly tradition and go more in depth as to why I like a certain feature. Having said that, for the year of 2017 my favorite feature by a huge margin are bezel-less displays. Continue reading “Favorite Tech Feature”

The Importance of Focus

11_facebook_250

Yesterday Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the world of his plans to “refocus the system”. That caught my eye because as a Facebook user since 2012, I’ve definitely noticed a lot change in the past 6 years. Whether it be too many ads or videos and not enough content from my friends, it’s certainly not the same as it was before and what it was intended for. But with Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement, it’s starting to make me feel a little better about the future of the service.

Mpow Jaws 4.1 Bluetooth Headphone Review

61Y-V9+G0sL._SL1000_So for Christmas my father got me a pair of Mpow Jaws Bluetooth headphones. If you’ve read my post before, I am not a fan of bluetooth headphones or earphones because you have to charge them and the sound quality isn’t as good as direct connection. That being said, these pair are $20 on Amazon right now and I got it as a gift so I thought I’d try them out. Here’s my review: Continue reading “Mpow Jaws 4.1 Bluetooth Headphone Review”

Apple Watch Series 1 (1 yr later)

Apple-Watch-Series-1-780x484

I’ve now owned my Apple Watch Series 1 for about a year since receiving it as a Christmas gift last holiday season. Since then, my experience has transitioned from ok to decent to great and now it’s become a major part of my daily life. I credit my excellent experience to Apple’s ability to couple amazing hardware with a top-notch OS that actually works well. I can’t deny that since using my watch over and over again it’s only been getting better and that’s a big testament for the incredible things the company does. It’s also why I believe the Cupertino company has a bright future with wearable technology. Continue reading “Apple Watch Series 1 (1 yr later)”
