He showed us the iPad, and almost immediately, it seemed familiar.
In fact, it seemed as though the thing had always existed.
It's hard to believe that we've only had iPads for seven years.
Now, we have Sony Playstation Vue (and DirecTV NOW) through our Apple TVs.
And so far, so good!
Until the primary Siri remote just.... stopped... working.
Last year, I got an Apple Watch Sport. (The gold one, with the blue Sport strap.)
No Apple Watch Series 2 (or even Series 1) for me this year.... I'm going to be sticking with my original Apple Watch Sport for a while.
