    I am so ready for baseball season to begin. I really don't care about Spring Training, since it doesn't really count for much.
    Ugh! It's going to be such a loooooong season for us Fish Fans. On the bright side we did put a hurtin' on Scherzer the other day in Spring Training. I hope MIA has impact windows in his place for when Mr. Stanton starts launching bombs in the Bronx.

    Ugh I hate how good he is. He is really something else! Scherzer all day, every day for me but Kershaw is hard to dominate.
    I'm not a Dodgers fan, really...but I like that dude. The Cards might say they own him in the post season, but they keep pitching him on short rest all the time, so that never helps.

    I don't think the Yanks will do as well as people are hyping them up to do this year. Last year, the lineup hit like it should but the pitching showed up well enough.

    I don't trust this staff to do that again this year. They're a playoff team though.

    I could care less for the Yankees as a team but Big G is a sight to behold. I'm old enough to have seen Hank Aaron, Mike Schmidt, Greg Luzinski and all the great homerun hitters from the 70s and 80s. But the sound that comes off the bat from a Stanton homer is unlike anything I've ever heard before. I was chatting it up with Mike Lowell at a game a couple of years ago and my back was to the field and all of a sudden this crack. I saw his eyes and jaw make contortions like he'd never seen a homerun. I turned around and thought it was a foul ball because the Arizona fielders hadn't moved. I found out later the ball left Marlins Park through the open windows. That was a jack.

    "Mike" Stanton is "country strong"/"hella strong".

    Huawei P20 Pro. Wow, the camera review is solid. This is definitely going to start an arms race as far as camera technology is concerned.

    Yeah, it's really interesting. I guess Juan Bagnell got his wish after all, haha. I'll like to see more samples hopefully.

    So the Apple education event introduced a new iPad with Apple Pencil support. I like the idea of it a lot and maybe I might want one. I could see it being useful to me.

    Looks like I was right not to have my hopes up for the SE 2 being announced today.

    Yeah I think the new iPad is a welcome upgrade. Also it will help stem the tide for the slump in iPad sales. But in typical Apple fashion they will still take in $299 + $49 (Crayon) at a minimum per sale at the low end.

    I was a bit bummed that they skipped out on the SE2.

    Yep, I can see that happening for pricing. Same here, I guess Apple is good on updating it. I could see them dropping the 6S series later on and keeping the SE in it's current state. Rumors have said it could come with WWDC but I doubt it, it doesn't seem likely for a phone to come out of that.

    Edit: I know that EverythingApplePro isn't always right but in his recent video about this Apple event, there was radio silence on any phones being announced. To me, that was a big sign right there.

    Honestly I am thinking of getting the Logitech Crayon if it works with the iPad Pro.

    Also for me personally I am interested in the Acer Chrome OS tablet with the built in Wacom stylus. My work is allowing the use of Office 365 and Outlook on Mobile and I might either use my Eve V or a tablet of some sort.

    Ooh if you get the Crayon, can you let us know how that goes? I haven't heard of that tablet, I'll have to search it. It sounds like it can make for a nice combination, I mean having a tablet with a built in stylus sounds amazing.

    Went to a career panel of law librarians at school and it was so informative. It even has me considering adjusting the track that I made up originally.

    Haha, in my mind, it would feel like somewhat of a breather from the almost usual stuff you deal with.

    Well that settles it. I'm probably going to use the Eve V and not the iPad Pro.

    A few more Crayon tidbits.
    1. Works only with new iPad. Not even with older Pro models.
    2. Has on/off switch and lasts 8 hours on a charge.
    3. Only available for Education accounts (i.e. teachers) and not for general retail.

    I mean what the heck is wrong with Apple.

    Look into the Bamboo Fineline 3, it now supports the iPhone as well. I've had the first gen Fineline for a couple of years and it's a solid Wacom product. Oh, and it's only about 50 or 60 bucks too.

    This is what Apple sees:



    This is what consumers (and everyone else) see:



    You seem surprised - why?

    I am debating how much is worth it to have a dedicated device just for school/schoolwork. I think it could help with focus but it can also be a very expensive trial. I have a great laptop that had great specs at the time that still hold well today but it's easy to get distracted on it since I view so many fun things, like YouTube videos and TV shows.

    I have tried incognito/private mode and it doesn't work. MIA, you're a recent graduate, what did you do? Open to any suggestions. Since I do have to run a program for class, a i5 is sufficient.

    I have debated this idea off and on but with the Microsoft store sale, it's on again. Considering the Surface Pro or Surface Laptop (probably a pipe dream but a bit much, I would have to shop around for deals). I'll like something that can be fixed if there's any issues.
