Two of my favorite things about the iPad Air and iPad mini are their size and style. Even though I'm more drawn to Android devices these days, I still really prefer the way Apple products look and feel. No one does product design like Apple. That's why I never can figure out why you would ever want [...]

The school system in my area recently announced they were purchasing a large number of iPads as part of a new education paradigm.  iPads are wonderful, and no one loves them more than me, but I will admit they are more useful for education purposes when they are paired with a physical keyboard for faster, [...]
