If you’re anything like me, you welcome the opportunity for new tech in your life at every turn. And not just cell phones, laptops, and audio equipment—but also smart home equipment, like wi-fi enabled door locks, lights and thermostats. A bluetooth connection is gold when it comes to your every day stuff. A smart-phone connected ottoman that helps you identify weak points in your ankles? Why not! A bluetooth dresser that lets you know when you’re running out of socks? Sign me up!
As luck would have it, I was given the opportunity to get my hands on a third-party keyboard that I was interested in, the subject of a later review which I’ll post in the coming weeks. The one caveat, though, was that it is a keyboard specifically designed for the Surface Pro 3 or Surface Pro 4—something I didn’t have…at the time.
This first part of my review aims to answer the question, “Why would someone pick up this product?” The answer? I mean, have you seen this thing? A killer display, top-end specs, a battery that (hopefully) doesn’t blow up…what more could you ask for?
We all love a good bluetooth speaker, don’t we? They’re like headphones…there are 723,000 options for under $45, and then there’s a jump to the $100 range, then you get to the big players at $200-$300. Anything over $400 is very hard to justify.
And you buy. every. single. one of them.

Now, with that out of the way, let’s talk about Apple a bit.
October 27 marked the (almost) 25 year anniversary of Apple’s first Mac, and the Cupertino company utilized this almost-Anniversary to score some emotional reminiscence points during it’s announcement that day of the latest line of MacBook Pro models. And then, the internet yawned.
