Oddly enough, privacy is important to me. At one point I had my Facebook privacy so tight, people couldn't post to me.
I've also been disappointed in the Windows Phone. I love mobile phone and tablet technology and sadly Windows isn't keeping up. Plus they are removing apps right and left from the Marketplace.
So several months ago I tried an iPhone, and yes, I like it. It's a iPhone 6S, and I liked it. Especially the apps.
However, I couldn't write apps with the tools I had. Since then, I've been trying out different solutions to the problem. I have an old MacMini, and even with a memory upgrade, it's slow and hard to use. I really like a laptop for development.
Remoting in was slow and awkward also.
Tried an old MacBook Pro from Best Buy (open box) and just wasn't happy. I finally decided on a form factor I liked but went through 3 to find one that worked. What DOES Best Buy do to their Macs when they are waiting to sell them.
So now I'm writing a book on how to write Apps with Swift. It's fun, because I'm working with one of my first tutoring students from college. We're making good progress.
So now I have an iPhone and a MacBook - the latest one in Rose Gold. High end, instead of the low end.
