So – as is usual and customary, Apple lifted their NDA last night and media outlets were off to the races.  I’m working on a video recap of the details, but I’ll summarize the highlights below if you are interested.  Side note:  only the Touch Bar versions of the MacBook Pros will be getting this refresh – the non-Touch Bar 13″ MBP was not announced to have any updates as of the date of this article.

New Tech Vlog up on the channel

Sean P and I had this discussion the other day – but 2018 has been a bit of a down year for smartphones in general.  Many of the cool new features we thought we would see did not happen, or are coming to phones we won’t see sold in the US market.  I take a few minutes to rant about this in the deadly SoCal heat this weekend.

New video – Samsung T5 Review

Storage can be a big deal for a lot of people – even when you aren’t editing and producing 4k videos.  So, for a price, Samsung has a variety of solutions.  If you think that you might need some more storage for files, photos, or videos of family and friends, the T5 should be on your list.  There are cheaper options out there, but for a certain group of folks, the T5 is among the best available options.

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference 2018 – Keynote Recap


Today marked the beginning of the software focused event from Apple, targeting primarily the development community.  Or at least, that’s how its been in the past, with this year’s event a bit more “community” than “developer” (or at least that’s what it seemed like to me.  I was a bit underwhelmed truth be told, but here is a rough list of what I found most interesting from the keynote event that took place today.
