My Gear

I'm using a 2022 MacBook Air hooked up to the Apple Studio display. I have an iPhone 13 mini (the blue one!) because come on, these phones are all too big. Despite spending less than I've spent generally (my M1 Mac mini was the best bang for the buck) for my main computer and iPhone and they are, by far, the most powerful I've ever owned. Oh, I have a lot of clicky keyboards that range from loud and obnoxious to louder and even more obnoxious. After I've done the Force Break modification, I added NovelKeys Silk key switches and... Hey, where are you going?


Bob graduated with an undergraduate degree in Journalism from The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College).

A Message from Bob Schulties

"I enjoy figuring out why technology acts the way it does. I also really enjoy showing people how to get more out of the technology they already own. I also really like clicky keyboards."
