I’ve been working at a place that does not have a Mac as a workstation, and relies heavily on cloud services for day to day operation. At home, my Mac hasn’t left it’s stand in weeks. Instead, I’ve been relying heavily upon my 8+ and my iPad Pro (the latter of which I was going […]Read More A change in workflow
