Two new gadgets on the way!

imageI’m addicted to gadgets, I freely admit it. That’s why I am excited today as I’ve ordered not one but two new devices. Now I’m in that anxious gadget addict phase of waiting for confirmation that each has shipped.

The first gadget I have on the way is the Typo Keyboard for the iPad Air 2. I reported yesterday that the price had dropped $40, so after a lot, OK just a little thought I pulled the trigger and it should be here in a few days.

Typo KeyboardGood keyboards are critical for me as I write at least 10,000 words a week. Reviews of the Typo have consistently found that the keyboard is really good.

The second gadget coming is actually three. I bought a Surface 3, Keyboard Cover, and pen. Microsoft is already shipping these with Windows 10 installed and I pulled the trigger.

I am getting a Surface 3 with 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage. It’s a Wi-Fi model, even though LTE is now available. I’m already spending too much for this package so I passed on the 4G.

A dark blue keyboard cover is coming with the Surface, along with a matching pen. I want to be able to fully leverage Windows 10 so these goodies are a must for me.

Now I have to get back to constantly refreshing the delivery page.

    I really like my Surface 3, and I have the same configuration as the one that you ordered. Windows 10 has made it even better.

    Hi James,

    Just curious; why are you not waiting for the new (probably soon to be released) Surface Pro 4. The Surface Pro 3 is already almost a year old.

      I’m getting the Surface 3, not the Pro. I never wait for upcoming products when existing ones are good enough.
