I'm in the same place you are with my iPad Air (I really like the Logitech Fabricskin keyboard myself). My stumbling block is the need to refer to notes or other research material (a pdf, an article, etc.) while writing. I have gotten used to having them open and on the same screen at the same time, which is far less distracting than switching back and forth on a tablet. How are you overcoming this limitation?

Understood. The solution for me has simply been fast app switching. It’s not as fast, as screen-swiping on OS X (or having two documents open at the same time, of course), but the four-finger gestures for iOS work pretty well. Hopefully future iOS versions will address this further.


I seem to recall all the bigwigs of the companies launching Google TV products going on and on about how great it would be. The future was here. It was just a year ago. 

I recall having other thoughts.

I actually had a Revue here at my apartment. A demo unit. It was never been taken out of the box. Not once. Not even to try it out. I don’t mean that to be snarky. It’s just the truth. And it says a lot.

It should probably be noted that wasn’t about returns from end users, which the company claims “have averaged at levels comparable to other Logitech products”, but from the distributors and retailers it sells most of its hardware to.

Oh, okay, that’s much better. It’s not users returning the devices in massive numbers, but perhaps only because they were never buying them in the first place. 

Instead, the distributors and retailers beat them to the punch.
