MBW 711: ARM Twist

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Great show, as always, but then I’m biased since this is my favorite TWiT show. Regarding the new keyboard and iPads, I’ve had my keyboard for about a week now, paired with my 2018 12.9” iPad Pro, and the more I use it, the more enthralled I am with it. Unlike Lory’s experience with the smaller IPad, I find it easily lap-able, and I love that I can just grab the iPad off of the keyboard and go. I used the key modifier to add an escape key (option key so I have one on each side) and just started using Lightroom for iPad and the trackpad is fantastic for this.

I always had an iMac, but when my 2007 was no longer supported, I bought the iPad Pro and my husband gave me his MacBook Pro that was getting a little long in the tooth. I found that I almost never looked at the laptop, and we ended up selling it off. With the new OS with file support, and all of the great apps, I don’t miss a “computer” at all. There are some peculiarities, like the interface in photo storage between Google, Apple, and Lightroom, but there always seems to be a solution not too far behind. Totally loving this combination. I may even have to get an Apple Pencil!

One thing no one seems to mention is that with the iPad/Magic combo, the biggest plus is having keyboard/trackpad interface plus TOUCH! Oh, and tell Lory that she can keep multiple tabs open with slide-over. It’s really easy to flip through them that way.

Thanks for the great shows!


Just a quick correction the iPad 7th generation $329 does have the smart connector. Thanks again Leo Andy Rene Lori for such amazing content

Ah yes, thanks @venvidivinci - I see they added the connector in the newest generation. That’s nice.
