Yay!! Thanks Paul for the iPad Pro.
I have been using it for a week already and it is very convenient... this large screen is awesome. I do recommend a keyboard ... better the Logitech because it can also be used as a protective case.
If you plan to make PPT presentations you will need to be ready to use your fingers, haha!
Thanks again to CEWire... and of course I'm back to CEWire2016!!

Thanks Jacob! When Jacob won the iPad Raffle, I gave him the choice of waiting until the Pro came out, mostly b/c I was super-curious as to its capabilities.

does the logitech case have a better keyboard than the one Apple is selling? I can't get used to the low-depth keys.. I am old.

I use a Zagg bluetooth keyboard and cover. Makes it easy for me to take notes in lectures or at meetings without dragging the laptop.

Downsides: heavier weight and must use on a flat surface. Not all lectures have classroom seating; most are theater style. Makes my job harder. :(

Upsides: Don't need to carry laptop, can take notes and tweet out the wazoo in a lecture.

It is interesting to see how spoiled we've all become -- the iPad pro is about 1.5lbs, that's the same weight as the ORIGINAL iPad! The advancement in mobile tech over the past 5 years has been remarkable.

I've got an original iPad here in front of me, it didn't even have a camera -- Back then Jobs himself said there was no way to package all of it into one unit and make it light enough.

I don't even know what generation iPad I have.

Facebook just told me that on this day 3 years ago, I got my personal iPad.

And who knows about the one my company handed me....

The Zagg case I have covers the back of the iPad as well. Ernie Bowling has a similar case—he inspired me to get mine—but it's a keyboard covering only the touch screen front, not the back. I opted for full coverage, but I paid for it in weight.

The real challenge...

How many ODs will sit through all 50 hours and pass the exam before May 1,2016?

This should be an interesting few months coming up.
