    Interesting, thought they’d maybe keep that in.

    One reviewer was glad as he felt the tapping was driving the earpiece into his head :/ wtf was he doing.

    yeah that's fucking weird.

    without having tried them, my gut reaction is I wish they'd keep the tap feature. space is at a premium in airpods though

    On a plane now and the Air Pods Pro are crushing it. Noise cancellation is way better than I thought it would be and the squeeze for transparency is helpful.

    How does the noise cancellation of the Air Pods Pro compare to the Bose Headphones (over the ear)?

    Gonna get my wife an Apple Watch for her birthday. I can still grab a series 4 at BB for $300. She wouldn’t need anything more than GPS so does it make sense to get her the 5 for $385? It seems that the only difference is screen on all the time and compass. Thoughts from owners?

    as an owner of a wife that acts like she's thrifty and doesn't need the newest and best, I recommend getting the 5

    It will give her thrifting purpose. She’ll have the latest watch and something to thrift over. Win-win.

    I too have a sandwich maker and you should get the latest and greatest model. If she is truly thrifty you can give her the option of exchanging it herself to save the money. Hero husband move.

    The biggest difference between the S4 and S5 is the always on screen. Since the screen is always on, you have to charge it more -- likely every night. Personally I'd go with the 4 because I don't think always on would make that much of an impact to me. Up to you to decide what you think your wife will tolerate.

    Apple customer service is so ridiculous. Had purchased the AirPod 2s back in September because my 1st gens stopped working.

    Walked into the store, asked if I could just swap mine out & upgrade. Had the Pros in hand within 3 minutes.

    7th Gen iPad just came out in November.
    iPad Pro is coming up on 1 year since release. The new one should be debuted anytime now and released before the holidays.

    I need to improve my ability/productivity to work from home/out of office. Main work that would be is marking up plans. Considering an iPad Pro and Pencil for that work, but the cost of that is pretty much the same as any 2-1 so I feel like I would m spending a whole lot of $$$ for not as much functionality. My current PC laptop is almost 8 years old, but still does what I need.

    One of my old coworkers used the first iPad Pro and Pencil to mark up schematic/wiring diagram PDFs and said he really liked it. It seemed pretty slick but I can't say how different it is vs a Surface or a Wacom.

    just make sure whatever app you use is compatible on macOS

    a lot of auto-cad people who use macs have to do BootCamp to use it on Windows

    On the flip side I spent literally hours and two trips to the Apple store trying to get them to take my old phone after my upgrade. They insisted I selected to return by post, the shipping partner insisted I was supposed to return in store. I showed multiple employees the email saying to return it in store and they didn’t know what to do. Finally after an hour on the second trip and 4 hours on the phone between the trips they figured out it was a simple selection that the store employees missed: they had to enter whether I wanted the loan for the old phone canceled or cash.

    it was absolutely ridiculous

    IPad Pro has a full desktop engine version of autocad now. It was a big part of the Apple Pencil keynote.

    I preface this by saying I’m not an architect at all.

    Never seen it but I have made the transition from Weather Underground to Dark Sky and love it. Weather U has gone to shit since the Weather Channel bought it.

    Also My Radar is the best weather radar app out there for free.

    Be sure to compare to surface pro

    I use my surface when traveling as a laptop replacement. Love it. I needed the windows functionality. iPad felt like an artists tool. Which may make it more applicable for your markups

    Had them a full day now, it is clear that the AirPod pros are a huge upgrade over previous versions.

    In addition to better sound and noise canceling, they are just more secure & comfortable in my ear.
