I’m often asked what software and hardware I’m using. This page attempts to answers that question.

Hardware

I’ve switched from living in ‘Microsoft/Windows Land’ since the early 90’s to Mac in 2013. Wish I’d done it sooner. The integration between the devices is wonderful.

  • MacBook Pro – From early 2013, with 8GB RAM & 256GB SSD. Love it. Next time I’ll spring for the max RAM I can.
  • iPhone 8 Plus – Great handheld computer, plus it has a phone.
  • iPad Pro 10.5″ – with Apple keyboard cover and Apple Pencil.
    I added a pen clip from the “Bullet” Fischer Space Pen to the Apple Pencil, obtained from the Pen Shoppe Shop 24 Brisbane Arcade 160 Queen Street Brisbane QLD. The Apple Pencil is finally a real digital replacement for a paper pad and pen. The iPad Pro 10.5 is the best tablet I’ve ever used, to the point where it is my primary device.
