It’s been a few months since my 2011 Macbook Pro died. I’ve tried to find a replacement since. With rumors of a new Macbook Pro announcing soon, I haven’t found any justification to replacing it with another. I did however, purchased a 2015 12” Macbook. I bought for my son and I was planning to use it as a secondary development machine. I’m not expecting it to be a powerhouse laptop which is why it won’t be a primary device. I will share my thoughts on that once I play with it more.
Microsoft has finally released Windows 10 on July 29, 2015. I took part in the tech preview and was impressed by how the new operating system looked and felt. Even though I was running the beta for several months on a VM, I was excited that the final release is finally available for download for current Windows 7 and 8 users. That excitement however, quickly turned into frustration.
Motorola released the second generation of their Moto E in 2015. I was curious about this device because of its near-stock Android experience. Best Buy has this phone in its prepaid flavor for $69. I thought I would give it a try. The Verizon store also has the device but they will not sell it to you unless you activate it before leaving the store.
