Sunday Column (503)

Hello. I am now back from holidays and rested, started my new permanent role, finding my feet. As always things are new, exciting, and it takes some time to really get to grips with everything. That’s it. So I had some thoughts again I wanted to share. This time it is about the future and all. My oldest was born in the year I turned 32. The next one when I turned 34. Just imagine at that time, I would have had my great grand parents still with me? Wouldn’t that have been crazy? This week’s column is triggered by something I read somewhere, probably the FT, that the first person who turns 1,500 years is already born. I am not sure 1,500 is a good age, and I am not sure how that is justified, but it got me thinking.

Same procedure as every week? Same procedure. Heathrow on Tuesday morning and to kill some time I had a play with the Apple iPad Pro. The large one. The medium one. It makes my iPad mini look small. My keyboard clunky and my Evernote stylus, which I haven’t used for a while, obsolete. So thinking about not needing my notepad that scans things instantly, my Evernote stylus and instead having it all within my iPad Pro is very appealing. Just what I always expected the iPad to do. Finally. I am not ready to swap just yet. Having said that, my beloved ZAGG keyboard broke this week. A sign? First let the iPad Pro be out there for at least a year and the charger and connection cables be changed to the new USB one. Or will they? And when do we find out? Painful, or maybe there won’t be cables and everything will be wireless charging? Let us wait a while. So a cheap replacement keyboard it is for now. I am not getting too excited about Apple anymore. This is mainly because I feel that the innovation leaps are gone. The incremental innovations are amazing and first class,
