Some really cool crowdfunding projects I wouldn’t mind finding under the Christmas Tree
A couple of weeks ago both Microsoft and Apple announced their new products. The new Surface Studio looks like a photographer’s dream with a touch screen that can be laid almost flat and a fun Surface Dial to help create your latest digital masterpiece. On the other hand, Apple announced the new MacBook Pro with a newly removed SD card slot to make things more “efficient” for users.
Which makes very little sense to me, unless your new business model is to make people have to pay for extra accessories to make your tools work for them. I have to wi-fi enabled cameras and I ALWAYS use the SD card slot to download images. We ALL know it takes forever to download via wi-fi.
Luckily I’m not in the market for a new computer just yet, because I’m not sure which way I would go. I’ve been a MacBook user for the past 4 years and an avid PC user for the many years before.
