Looking for your impressions of the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, connected keyboard. Is it just an iteration of the original, or did you experience any "magical" moments with the new interfaces? Subjective weight impressions? Impressions of the lower reflective screen? Overall look and feel? How about the speaker system: hype or great? Thank you all!
Mrs. Rez purchased one yesterday. Her iPad 3 (with 30 pin connector) went back for $75 trade-in, about 10% of the original. Old case and old smart cover do not fit new thinner/smaller iPad Pro. She thought she had a backup, then discovered the last full backup was (supposedly) in 2013. Oh my - note to self, check her work *before* she wipes the old one. Oh well - the only critical stuff on there was her status in Candy Crush and Pearl's Peril or some such. So she gets to start over fresh.
She has not let me near it, however. The deal was she gets one now, *if* I'm allowed to test drive the Apple Pencil. Still waiting on a new job that comes with a paycheck before I get any new toys. Reminds me of a ketchup commercial from the 70s.
Finally got to use the iPad Pro 9.7" with Apple Pencil. THIS is how I am finally going to learn cartooning. My biggest hang-up with art instruction on paper is going through all the paper. I learned drafting, architectural drawing, and technical descriptive drawing in the mid-1980s. We went through so much paper, with the instructor circling inconsistencies with red pen and removing two points for each mark. Very infrequently would I get a "check", which meant he could find nothing wrong with the picture. How we worked for those checks.
"Kids" nowadays will never know the pain and joy of toiling away with pencil, compass, white eraser, T-square, and triangles. No sweeping eraser crumbs into a little pile on the floor at the end of class. No sharpening wooden 2H and HB pencils, or clicking to refill a mechanical 0.7mm lead holder, or stacking drafting gear into a drawer with care each night. I think it is for the best.
Next, I expect Apple to release a tablet with some kind of high-density ePaper screen, and Apple Pencil v2. The only thing missing is the screen technology. Only a matter of time.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
