Daring Fireball: The 2018 iPad Pros
The iPad Pro is like a computer from an alternate universe. In the normal universe, Moore’s Law has stopped delivering significant year-over-year returns, and high-performance portables need fans to cool them. In the iPad universe, Moore’s Law still delivers year after year, and a super-fast, genuinely “pro” portable needs no fan...
These iPad Pros aren’t cheap. Throw in a $179 Smart Keyboard Folio and $129 Apple Pencil and even the $799 base model will run you over $1,100 all told. (The 12.9-inch Smart Keyboard Folio is $199.) But these aren’t “just tablets”. They’re tablets, yes, but there’s no just to them. Dollar for dollar, they’re a better value than any MacBook Apple has ever made. They match — and in some areas exceed — the CPU and GPU performance of MacBook Pros that cost $3000 or more. These are serious iPads for serious iPad users.

Uses This / Tyler Feder
Who are you, and what do you do?
I'm Tyler Feder, an illustrator and soon-to-be-author living and working in Chicago. I just finished illustrating Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin's Unladylike: A Field Guide to Smashing the Patriarchy and Claiming Your Space, and now I'm working on my first solo book, a graphic memoir about losing my mom to cancer when I was a teenager. I also run an Etsy shop called Roaring Softly where I sell prints of my artwork (and offer portrait commissions whenever I have a free moment).

Uses This / Kamina Vincent
Who are you, and what do you do?
I’m Kamina Vincent! Hi!
I’m the Producer at Mountains, and we recently released Florence on iOS and Android. I take care of the project schedule, the team, and general business of running the company. I drink a lot of tea and, when big looming tasks occur, I rely on a lot of chocolate.
Outside of my work at Mountains, I mentor women and other underrepresented people and speak at various events (GCAP, Get into Games Ballarat, and others). I’m passionate about inclusion and diversity and use these opportunities to demonstrate that there are different roles and people within the games industry.

Uses This / Charlie Gleason
Who are you, and what do you do?
I'm Charlie Gleason, a designer, developer, musician. I push pencils and pixels at Heroku, working on brand, design, and front end development. I have a deep affection for creative coding, and released a library, Sandpit, to make it easier to experiment with. I also spent a bunch of time on exploring music and the web, with projects like Tweetflight, Drag It Down On You, and Koya. I studied design at university, and then went back to do computer science, and then went back to do sound production for a bit. I never want to stop learning.
What hardware do you use?
For most things, a MacBook Pro from 2012 that I affectionately call the Ship of Theseus --- every single piece has been replaced at one point or another. I tried to sell it recently and my cat bit through the display as I wrote the ad. It will bury me.

Losing my iPad Pro: what I missed (and love) about Apple’s tablet experience – The Sweet Setup
Last month, my car was broken into right at the start of a 10-day road trip. Before I realized how much I’d left in the middle seat,1 the rear window was smashed and the thief made off with the bag with my iPad, keyboard, sleeve, and Pencil (along with a smattering of other gear).
Besides the financial setback and dealing with replacing a window mid-vacation, the biggest impact wasn’t felt until we made it home and I sat down at my desk — I didn’t have my tablet for work anymore.

Stefan Elf's Mac, iOS, and Watch setup for 2018 – The Sweet Setup
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Stefan Elf. I am a freelance web developer, designer and lecturer. I was featured on The Sweet Setup back in April 2016, so this is an update where I highlight some developments in my setup and workflows. Almost all of the applications that I commented on in my first interview (Ulysses, Drafts, JW Library, Equipd, CodeKit, Atom etc) I still love and use on a daily basis. You can laso find me on Instagram at @stefanelfdesign.
What is your current setup?
I’m currently using a Mac mini (late 2014 with an i5 2.6GHz, 16GB RAM, and 256GB SSD) along with dual Dell U2515H monitors. I also use an Apple keyboard (wired, US layout), Magic Trackpad 2, and Logitech MX Ergo trackball. In addition, I keep a couple of external HDDs around, an Epson all-in-one printer, and some Yamaha NX-N500 speakers. The desk is an IKEA Galant and printer unit.

Jeff Perry's iPad Pro and iPhone setup – The Sweet Setup
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Jeff Perry, and I write for Tablet Habit, co-host the podcast Getting Caught Up, and I will be releasing a new podcast I am on that’s all about the iPad called A Slab of Glass on March 18th.
Outside of my blog and podcasts, I work as an audio engineer for my day job at a local TV news station.
What iPhone do you have?
I have the Space Gray iPhone 8 Plus 64 GB. A lot of people are surprised by my low storage, but I manage to only fill half that even with the 45 podcasts I am subscribed to and the litany of music I have in Spotify. Storage never seems to be much of an issue for me.
