All of us want to get more out of our lives. Tech is just one of the ways that we can do that.
If you are like us, sometimes it's frustrating to be the tech support person in your circle. You know the one who gets handed grandpa's phone at the family dinner and says fix. Or the one that always gets the how do I do this questions.
In our podcast we want to help those that share these feelings, and anyone else looking to get more out of their tech to do so.

If you fall into any of these or similar categories, this is the podcast for you:
- Those that find themselves helping everyone they know navigate tech
- Those that like their tech but want to control it to get most out of life
- Those trying to navigate this new fangled tech as they help raise young families

Join us as we discuss tips, tricks, latest news and info and then for those that like to go geek like we do, deep dives into our tech.

    iPad Pro, iPad Pro & iPad Pro

    Summary
    More info is out about the new iPads and in-between tech issues, we spend the majority of time talking about the new details and the reviews. Then we close with a discussion on who should buy the iPad Air vs. the iPad Pro and then Jason talks us through his plans for launch day (which are cool but not as cool as he would like).
    And a shout out to @riversidefm. We have had issues during a few different recording sessions and because of the way they have set up their system, we have still been able to publish a show. Today Greg dropped full internet three times and then had to move locations to finish uploading. Riverside did not miss a beat. So glad we are using them.
