My Gear

I'm using the 2020 M1 Mac mini hooked up to a 4K external monitor. I have an iPhone 12 mini (in that sweet green) because, come on, these phones are all too big. My most beloved device, however, is my 11" 2018 iPad Pro. It's the near perfect computer for most of the things I do most of the time. Oh, I have a lot of clicky keyboards that range from loud and obnoxious to louder and even more obnoxious. They use Gateron 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).
