Denver with the iPhone X

This past April I went to Denver for the annual #GSMCON Government Social Media Conference. Normally, I would always travel with my Fuji x100F, but this time I decided to only take my iPhone X and leave behind my beloved x100F. I was looking for a way to travel lighter and with my shiny new iPhone X only a few months old still, it seemed like a good idea.

As I prepare to post my review, I thought I would share a couple photos. I love how my original TCL-x100 Teleconverter looks on my new x100F. I had originally purchased it with my black x100S, but I think I actually like this look better. I’ve now owned every x100 and the love affair just keeps growing with this camera.

This past July  my daughter and I decided on a whim to take a trip to Tokyo for a few days. She was out of school for the summer and it was perfect for some quality father daughter time.

Apple AirPods Review

Apple AirPods Review

I've been watching the wireless earbuds market for the past couple years, but I had been hesitate to buy anything so far. When Apple announced their new AirPods in October of last year, I was initially intrigued, but still not sure if I wanted/needed them enough to warrant spending $169.

In 2015 with the release of iOS 9 Apple also released a new app called "News". As the name implies its a news aggregator for reading news on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 9 or newer. News is a far better user experience compared to standard web pages with their ever increasing pop ups and animated ads that are clearly more focused on the ads than the content.
