My Tech Picks (Summer 2020)

Last summer saw a pretty radical change in the technology that I use in my day-to-day life. After years of being a strict Windows/Android user, I took the plunge and switched back to the Apple ecosystem.

None of what they were doing was making any sense to me. Let me be clear, I am more than a PC user. I’m a licensed technician. I can design and build a personal computer from scratch. While...
