    I have an iPad Air 32gb with wifi + cellular that I purchased in April. It's in perfect condition. I've come to realize that I need much more storage. I want to get an iPad Air 2 128gb. What's your advice for getting the most value out of my iPad Air?

    No mention here of the retina iMacs? Pretty exciting product addition IMO.


    Taskpaper used to do exactly this: a plain text editor for tracking to dos/making lists. I haven't used it in a few years but you might look into it; I assume it's still around


    Really want to try this. I love the idea of Apple Pay. Need to figure out who accepts it near me though.


    When I bought my 6 the sales assistant let me pick any case in the store for free. :) Got the black leather Apple case. I don't like cases, but the slipperiness of the 6 makes them tempting to try again.

    The fact that you can't change an iPhone 6 shipping address before it has shipped is fucking ridiculous.

    I strongly recommend looking at the case in person before you buy. It's an ugly olive brown color that looks like a stale chocolate bar.

    Looks like I'll be buying another Maison Takuya case.

    I've noticed the signal strength on the bluetooth radio seems stronger on the 6 then it was the 5. I can stream music a lot farther away from my stereo then I could before.

    really happy with the low light capabilities of the 6's camera. Did a compare of the 5s and the 6 at a dark restaurant and the differences were pretty amazing.

    Sometimes FedEx delivers a day earlier than estimated... hopefully today is one of those days!

    Can confirm. My protein powder is being delivered by FedEx two days earlier than its stated anticipated delivery date :bounce2:

    I'm headed to the airport today and was hoping my phone would get delivered this morning. Watched a FedEx truck stop 2 doors down and then drive away.

    I know (and hate) the feeling you get when that truck drives off. :(

    I've had FedEx screw up more deliveries then UPS and the USPS combined. Not surprised to hear that.
