It amazes me that my toddler nephew is already a YouTube wiz. He remembers which videos are his favorites and knows how to close/skip ads. He even knows which videos are "inapoopiate" and avoids them. Although he'd rather watch kids play with toys than play with his own, I admire that he's already become this tech-savvy. What do you think about kids being exposed to technology at a such a young age?

Yup! It's all about balance and of course what they're actually doing on the device itself. I'm loving all these programming toys that have been coming out lately.

I think it is good that kids are learning how to use technology. However, I think there should be a balance where the kid learns to use technology as a tool, learns social skills, and spends most of his/her time being active.

I don't think technology is bad. The problem is that even WE as an adults don't even know how to use it properly.

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface Pro aren't supposed to be competitors in my eyes, but Consumer Reports (CR) sees it a bit differently.

If you would like my take on it, the Surface Pro is just a smaller laptop that has tablet functionality. While the iPad Pro is a tablet that has laptop functionality but only depending on what apps you have. Meaning that you can use the iPad Pro for strictly playing games from the App Store, or you can turn it into a laptop replacement and use it to knock out those daily business chores.

All in all, we should all agree that we like what we like. If you're an MS fan, I'm sorry you got dinged like this, but if you're an Apple fan know that the iPad Pro can be a laptop replacement if you choose to use it that way. Oh, and don't go laughing at your MS buddies because CR smacked them on the hand. What goes around comes around, and we should all just respect that we have different taste and love to drive the machine of our choice.

Take care everyone.

Justin, the one that caught my attention is facetime. ugh! the only people you can connect with are other Apple devices. And I wasn't talking about using my Surface to manage SharePoint, I was talking about being able to see/use SharePoint and OneDrive from within Word, PowerPoint, Excel. The cloud storage is treated just like any other folder on my computer.

And I'm jealous of the vette.

BTW, Justin... what you said about going to your Mac to get some stuff done? That. What if you could squeeze your Mac into your iPad? That's why Surface is not like an iPad.

Apple lovers, September is around the corner.  Are you excited to see what Apple's been working on the last few months!?

I'm eagerly awaiting news on the latest iPhone.  The iOS 11 features coming out look promising too.

Yeah, Apple Pay is pretty great. When I find a business that supports it, I've started going there more. It's even more convenient when you can use a smartwatch—you don't even need to reach into your pocket!

Looks good from the pics.. not game to install it though.. Both my IPhone and IPad are too important to me day to day to risk installing a beta on either of them :)

Happy Saturday!

If you still have one of those old unlimited data plans on AT&T and you happen to reach 22GB for the month, AT&T is going to throttle you like a Le Mans driver downshifts. Enjoy! ;)

Thanks for the head's up! Fortunately, I think I manage to stay well under that, but I'll have to be sure to keep an eye on it.
