Nintendo Switch OLED in 2023

 So, I’ve been a gamer since the early 80’s and have owned many systems. Lately, I bought a Nintendo Switch OLED. I had the cheaper Nintendo Switch a couple of years ago and didn’t like it, but recently I played my niece’s OLED Switch and enjoyed it. I like portable gaming better than TV gaming because I can take it with me around the house and outside. I also like the docking ability when I want a bigger screen, and while I play docked, it will be charged and ready to go. Nintendo really did a great job with the OLED model. We’ll see if they release a newer Switch in the coming years.  Right now, they are still releasing new games, so I think we’re good for now.

2023 Update

 So, it's been a few years since I've blogged about anything, and a lot has happened in this time frame.  I now use the MacBook Air with M1 chip and my favorite IDE is VS Code. I'm currently an HTML Email Developer who loves gaming and photography when I have time. I plan to start blogging again soon, so stay tuned.

iPad 2017

Yes, I’m still an avid iPad user. My wife bought me the 2017 iPad on sale for $250 at Target over the holidays. I briefly had a Lenovo Thinkpad and enjoyed it for a few months, but battery life seemed to really bother me. I’ve always loved the battery life on the iPad and I like the fact that it’s always ready when I open it. The new 2018 iPad has just recently been released and is a really good deal for $329 and supports the Apple Pencil which is $100 extra. I just received a Bamboo stylus for my birthday so I think that will tide me over until I decide whether I really want an iPad Pro or not. I think I will eventually move to the pro and pencil, but the price is holding me back for now. Yes, I do use the iPad as my main PC and that is why I’m considering the pro. It would really be nice if Apple puts their desktop OS on the iPad Pro, but we’ll see what happens.

Digital Brainstorming

I know humankind has many achievements in the last decade, but I can't help but feel we are a little stagnant.  Whether you agree or disagree, God is the source of spiritual and created both spiritual and physical, then man, who is spiritual and physical created digital. I wonder what is next for man? I suppose since God became flesh through the birth of His son, we will want to enter the digital world we have created. What will that look like? I have noticed the big push to VR today and it would seem that we want to use the digital environment we created to rule and reign. I do of course see a problem with us spending too much time in the digital world without taking care of our physical world and even then we must maintain the spiritual which is the source of everything.

Back to iPad 2

I know it's been a while since I've blogged about anything, but I'm back. I have used a  number of computers in my life and have narrowed it down to what fits me best. I think that anyone looking to use tech should search for reliability and affordability. I have a 2013 11" MacBook Air and it works just as it did in 2013, but even though it is small and portable, I found myself wanting something less powerful and more portable. Like many people, I use my smartphone a majority of the time. I had an iPhone 3GS, then the iPhone 4 and decided to switch to Android because they had bigger screens. I now use an "old" Samsung Galaxy S5 and it is good enough for me but I do miss having the apps I paid for when I had an iPhone and an iPad 3 briefly before I sold it. I know the iPad sales are down and people aren't buying one every year, but I noticed my wife's iPad 2 is slow but still working. I also heard that the iPad 2 was still the most used iPad still goi
