Ben Bajarin, Techpinions: The iPad Air—A truly mass market personal computer
my latest revamp of my App Store review of Tumblr’s iOS app. It’s still the best first-party blogging app by a light year.
Frustratingly announced within a couple weeks of each other, Mophie’s Juice Pack Helium and Air are two battery cases for the iPhone 5. I’ve been a fan of Mophie’s Air cases for years, so of course I pre-ordered the Helium on day one, hastily filed an RMA request when the Air was announced, then decided to take the opportunity to compare them.
For those who owned the Juice Pack Air for iPhone 4/4S, yes: Mophie dropped that dreadful case design and went with something much better.
I want to try something new with some of my reviews. I wonder if some products are important enough to review initially, then look at again once we’ve spent more time with them in the real world to truly learn how their enhancements play out.
The iPhone 5 is just such a product, so I might as well start here. Since the core aspects were covered thoroughly by others, I want to focus mainly on what is important after spending not just a few days or a week with it, but weeks and months.
If you previously owned a netbook, you might be right at home with the Ultrathin Keyboard mini, so this could work for, like, 50 people.
But when it comes to the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini for iPad mini, I’m not sure I’m willing to deal with the necessary compromises.
