Jeffrey Abbott, on The Sweet Setup:

Every week we post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

New iPad 9.7″ Is Basically a First Generation iPad Air With Touch ID

March 21, 2017 · 15:11

I’m a bit disappointed with Apple’s announcements today, especially about the lack of any new iPads or substantial updates to the existing line-up. I was hoping for a 7.9″ iPad Pro and Display P3 on the 12.9″ model. The new 9.7″ iPad however…

I bought my first Kindle in 2011. It was the model with side mounted buttons to flip pages, a non-lit screen, and I loved it1. Not because it was a good device, but because it allowed me to carry so … Continue reading


iPad Pro — Daily Force Restart Required

December 6, 2015 · 10:20

I’ve had my iPad Pro for 16 day now. While most of it is what I expected, there is one area where it’s been significantly lacking, frustrating me to no end.


Notability & Apple Pencil — Some Thoughts

November 28, 2015 · 21:20

I spent the last two days playing around with my Apple Pencil, which I acquired due to pure dumb luck. I then bought Notability for iOS [App Store] and actually wrote something. On the iPad Pro, with the Apple Pencil. … Continue reading


Nine Days with Apple Watch

May 17, 2015 · 20:29

My Apple Watch arrived late. It was in fact early compared to the estimated shipping date, but having to wait an extra week was extremely off-putting. Patience is not one of my virtues. My friends got their Sports on launch … Continue reading
