Many people ask how I keep up with all of the changes going on in the tech world, and especially how I keep tabs on both Android and iOS. OK, I’ll admit that most of the people asking are spammers, but it’s a legitimate question.
The truth is that I don’t do it myself. I have a cadre of (theoretically) loyal assistants who help out.
Yuki handles Android on tablets. Since he’s slightly nearsighted, he appreciates the larger screen. He also likes the book-style cover that folds into a support. Very convenient when lounging on the stairs.
Kaja is the iOS expert. She’s wedded to the iPad and won’t consider switching to an iPhone, claiming the smaller on-screen keyboard is too hard to use with paws. Plausible, but since she mostly plays games, I don’t put too much stock in her excuse. (Rhubarb, her litter mate, just isn’t into the tech scene. He prefers chasing a real little red dot over a virtual one.)
‘Nuki remains loyal to BlackBerry. He only recently made the jump to OS 10, and he’s finding the new gesture controls somewhat confusing. I believe this picture was taken just after he turned off the screen in the middle of writing an e-mail. But he’s convinced that physical keyboards are far more paw-compatible than on-screen keyboards, so he’ll stick with his Q10 for posting poems to his blog.
I haven’t been able to convince any of them to switch to an Amazon device, hence the lack of paws-on reviews of their devices.
