The Post-PC CEO: No Desk, No Desktop #iPadOnly Aticle from WSJ

Michael had been an #iPadOnly CEO for a while. I have worked #iPadOnly also for a really long time. It is good to see that others are following the path.

It is possible to be #iPhone6+Only?

The short answer is yes. It is possible to be #iPhone6+Only as much as it was possible to be #iPhoneOnly for a while. We had not been the first people to go #iPadOnly and to do things with the iPad or the iPhone as the Main Machine.

In 2012 Patrick Rhone wrote his book ”Enough” just using his iPhone and the iPad. Patrick had constantly mention that he works on his iPhone constantly, even more than what he sometimes uses his iPad.

The reality is that for many people their iPhones are their main machine - they just don't know it, but it is the computer they use most often - and as their main machine the new big screen on the iPhone 6+ will allow you to do even more, more confortable.

In my initial play with the iPhone 6+ I really got fascinated. The size makes the typing on the iPhone even better. I can't type (at any decent speed) on Portrait Mode on my iPad (even that Portrait is my favorite position if I am using a keyboard) what creates that if I am not going to be off a table and it is something short, I will pick the iPhone over the iPad.

Based on the initial tests, with this screen I will be even able to read better and write faster, that are two things that really I am interested in. I think the device will play an important role in my arsenal of technology when arrives. I understand that in my ear looks really big, but I rarely pick the phone, I usually use the headset, so that part doesn’t bother me at all.

Since the iPad came into the market we have been reading about this or that device that it is going to kill the iPad, that it is going to make the iPad obsolete, but so far no one had accomplish that mission. I think that for the first time such device exist for all those users that need to use a Laptop in addition to their phone, there is really no need to use the iPad. For everything else you will use the computer (and if you have a Mac you will use continuity that based on my beta tests is amazing!). If you are currently #iPadOnly the story may play differently.

I think that for many the iPhone 6+ it is going to be the device that will kill the iPad, for many this is the first device that will create that addiction that the Blackberry created many years ago. The device is amazing.

The question is if It is possible to be #iPhone6+Only?

There is people that will be able to do it, without any issues. I particularly don't see myself going that route, but without a doubt I see myself carrying the iPad much less in favor of the iPhone 6+, specially when it is a short trip in the city.

Bug found in iOS 8 causes all iWork and iCloud Drive data to get erased - be careful

As discovered by MacRumors and also mention by Appadvice (from where I got the information) users that have used the "Reset All Settings" option that it is found on (Settings > General > Reset) in your iOS device may erase all their all their iWork Documents in their iCloud Drive. Obviously this seems like a bug, and Apple may fix it in the next iOS 8 release.

As also mention by Appadvice:

This is particularly worrisome for users of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. If you use both and this happens, your data will get erased, then sync across devices, and erase from them as well.

Make sure if you are using iCloud, iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite to have your files backup, do not trust iCloud since as far as my knowledge goes, there is no backup function for the documents you have there, so be careful.

iPhone 6 Plus: It's not an iPad nano

This is a fantastic article. Among my favorite passages:

I’m not saying the iPhone 6 Plus is wrong for not being an iPad. Not at all. What I’m saying is, it’s not an iPad—and that I think people who expect it to be one are going to be disappointed. If the question is, “Big iPhone or small iPad?”, the answer is clear: The iPhone 6 Plus is called iPhone for a reason, and it’s not the Phone app.

Transfer files is going to get so much easier for those that are or want to be #iPadOnly thanks to Transmit.

If you need to transfer files on a Mac, for a long time there had been Transmit. It is maybe one of the most powerfull applications if you need to transfer files, deal with an FTP or SFTP server, or send files to the cloud via Amazon S3, or a simple WebDAV. For Backups, upload photos, maintain a website, it is a really cool app...

According to Federico Viticci from MacStories it is comming to iOS 8 and that it is fantastic news for those that want to be or are #iPadOnly...

Apple Debuts Two New 'Your Verse' iPad Stories Featuring Electropop Group 'Yaoband', Detroit 'Slow Roll' Cofounder

Apple Debuts Two New 'Your Ver... www.macrumors.com screenshot

Check out the article as well as the Apple's site for the new "your verse" stories. Especially now that Robin Williams died. Great tribute to him (I watched Dead Poets Society last night) and a great way to highlight how iPad is used in the wild.

Wish they did a section with me and Augusto though. We're evangelizing the #iPadOnly movement for some time now, Apple, don't be shy, contact us :-)

iPad - The New Typewriter (by @parislemon)

The New Typewriter — Five Hu... medium.com screenshot

Today I'm linking to a great new post by MG Siegler about... typewriters. Actually, about how he feels writing on the iPad:

It even feels like I’m using a typewriter. Because there is no trackpad/hand rest below the keyboard, it feels like I’m attacking the keys at the typewriter angle, versus hovering over them at the keyboard angle.

I can't agree more with MG. Totally true. I'm writing this on my iPad and I agree with everything he writes in his article. And I even wrote my own, new iPad writing app which I'm going to feature on this site soon! So stay tuned!

Totally agree with @parislemon here: The Astonishing, Disappointing iPad

The Astonishing, Disappointing...

Exactly my thinking, iPad is not disappointing, it's just too successful too fast. I'm typing this on my iPad and I see the future here and not on a PC. Do you agree?
