I've never drawn on video before.  I do have a Youtube channel, in theory (I haven't posted anything).  Could be interesting.  But I would have to do voiceover as well, and I don't know exactly how to do that yet.  I might be able to figure it out, though.

Well, there are two ways to go about recording video. If you do it with a Camera over your shoulder, that's the obvious way, but a lot has to go into that to make sure your camera is set up the correct way, lighting, etc.... But there is also Twitch that does it for you. If you can run Twitch on your device, using their OBS software, it will record the feed direct from your iPad. If you want to been seen while drawing (that little box in the corner as you see in most gaming videos), you can add that option via Twitch as well. I'm assuming your iPad comes with a video camera, you're covered there. If you have a standalone mic and it's hooked up to your ipad, you can record your voice-over that way. But your iPad should have a built in mic if you have a videao camera.

Started playing around with it... dude, this thing is DOPE.  It took me a few minutes to find the right configuration, but yes, the Apple Pencil works on it.. .and the display is so tight, it's like a full size iMac monitor, 27 inches or so shrunk down.  The iPad, despite being smaller than my laptop screen, has a higher resolution.   Precision work is going to be tricky, but otherwise, so far so good.

I can mirror my screen with it, too, so that's pretty cool.  I'll probably be using that for Photoshop work in the future.  And if this thing didn't need the cable tether...

So... Duet Display.  15 bucks on the App Store.  Could be worth it.

Fire tablets drop encryption, are less secure (CNET Update)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OwXJsdgy-w

Not that this move is going to affect me directly as I don't own a Fire Tablet, nor would I ever. But WTF are they thinking in doing this? DUMB!

Joy Factory Magconnect Clamp Mount For Surface Pro, iPad Pro & more

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5vByoE8atU

This looks pretty cool and something I'm considering for myself. It's a bit pricey. So I will have to do more research on this.

Customize Your Own Skin for Surface Pro 4 Using Amazon

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbDBg85hNPY

Now this is f*cking awesome! I have a few images that I would totally get made for my Surface. What makes this a great addition is that you can use your own images instead of pre-existing ones. You can test out what your skin will look like here. Just hit the customize button.

The Triple Monitor Mega MacBook!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwhFr5Ax3Fk

I don't own or have any MacBooks or iPads, but that's not going to stop me from marveling at this. It's only a matter of time before this becomes the norm with Window Laptops (if it's not already a thing now) as well and it's that reason that I'm stoked for something like this to make it's way to me down the road.

Interesting. Great start. I can see the lap top folks getting the juices flowing if they alteady have not.

I use a multi monitor at work. At home, not for me. But I can see multi tasking nerds go crazy.

That's what I use!  Well, I don't have those wingy things, though that might be a smart idea in the future.  Instead, I cradle my iPad (which is in a protective cover) on an easel, that way it's at a nice angle and can place it wherever I like.

Refreshed Surface Book to ditch hinge gap and Surface AIOs may get 4K displays


As with any news article touting to have "inside intel" from people within the industry and whatnot, this article is pure speculation being pushed as "legit"....to some degree. It's more for fanboys than anything of merit. Even though I know not to take everything they say 100%, there is that kid in me that wants to see the All-In-One 4k Surface Pro become a reality and I like how they already have "sizes" for 3 models.....with no proof this is even happening. Still want to see it though.

Introducing Microsoft Surface Studio

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzMLA8YIgG0

Game-changer. Man, the Surface Studio gave me chills. Wacom is probably sh*tting itself right now. Yes, this is just the first iteration and is bound to have its bugs. But come on, this is amazing. I'm ready to pack my current PC in moth balls and make way for this. This is what I've been waiting for. Back at the dawn of Surface Pro 3, I said this all-in-one PC would be a reality soon and take a shot at Wacom. I just didn't expect that day to arrive this morning. But, and it's a big BUT. The sticker price is $3k. It's doable. So much to talk about and read further into.  I find the Dial fascinating and need to learn more about it.
