Re: Gmail vs Outlook>

We use Office 2016 mostly for Excel and Word. We use the OSX product for mail, contacts and calendars - those items sync things perfectly. But I have found syncing email requires the mail server to be set to IMAP.

Dumb question time. [more]

Re: Oh. My. God. Bless. America.

There are external keyboards available for iPads. But, yes, without them, writing a book would be unpleasant (even using dictation ... I'm not sure how many people can write a book that way -- especially with trying to make edits).

Re: Reality Check on Apple

I think there's also much more friction with phone upgrades/replacements than there's been in the past. I know a number of people who haven't bought a newer phone because the installment purchase cost (vs 2 year contact pricing) was harder to wrap [more]

Re: Oh. My. God. Bless. America.

No way I could write a book on an iPad.
I can scarcely write a post on the thing.

Re: Oh. My. God. Bless. America.

My current iPad uses AT&T Cellular.
I'm thinking that I might choose Verizon for the next one.
