    I am back with Apple TV

    Apple TV 4K (2021) I originally adopted Apple TV way back when it first released in 2007. I thought it would be the future and a good way to share content from my iTunes library. I went through two iterations with the Apple TV and then switched to the Logitech Revue due to some better features, including TV Passthru and it had a keyboard. After I had some Android sticks, a Mac Mini, and several iterations of Amazon FireTV boxes. Due to several app issues, lack of speed and crashes, I decided to

    Why I am buying the new 2019 Mac Pro

    My old 2009 Mac Pro has had a very long and productive life. The insides of the machine have nothing except one DVD ROM drive from the original packaging. Everything has been upgraded, from the processor to the graphics cards. The machine supports USB type C, and a host of other technologies that were not available when I bought the machine.

    BREXIT Thoughts

    I love Santiago, Chile

    I have been told that there are more interesting places in Chile that I must visit, but I am in love with Santiago.  I was in Santiago for two weeks for work and walked over 50 kilometers around the sprawling city.  I walked from the streets in the business district to the highest peak in the city.  Within viewing distance was the Andes mountains tempting me to climb them. Santiago mixes Spanish culture and design with modernity.  There are some fabulous restaurants and bars in the center, and even better places not too outside the center.  I was amazed
