🤔 Ipad Pro - laptop or tablet? Create Your Free Email Signature, and a Super Mario FPS
Super Mario with guns?
Hey everyone! I hope you’re doing well this week. Things are a bit heavy these days with Coronavirus at the top of everyone’s minds.
And the coming Recession . . .
I hope you and your families are doing well amidst all the uncertainty. You are certainly in my thoughts and prayers during these days. Many small businesses are being crushed, and many of my friends have been laid off.
Heck, I think about the only people doing well in this economy are Zoom, Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, and a few others.
Things are always darkest before the dawn, and we’ll make it through!
Here’s a pretty useful dashboard for monitoring COVID19 developments. It’s from Johns Hopkins University.
Let’s turn to some interesting topics from this week.
💻Ipad Pro - Laptop or Tablet?
Well boys and girls, by golly, they’ve finally done it! Apple’s finally admitted that the Ipad is a 2 in 1 device!
They’ve officially added trackpad (mouse) support and have positioned it as a computer alternative. I thought the day would never come! For years Apple tried to tell us it was a three device world (laptop, tablet, phone).
The Surface Pro and other 2 in 1 devices have been getting pretty popular, and Apple has been paying close attention.
Remember what Tim Cook said about the Microsoft Surface?
"It's a product that tries too hard to do too much . . . It's trying to be a tablet and a notebook and it really succeeds at being neither. It's sort of [diluted]." Source
Well, it looks like Apple has reconsidered its position on the matter. Watch this trailer from Apple about the new Ipad Pro.
What are your thoughts on the new Ipad Pro?
📩Create Your Own Email Signature
Looking to spice up your business emails with a professional Email Signature? Well, I’ve found a really neat website where you can make your very own for free! No strings attached.
The best part about it is that it’s pretty easy to use, and it even has instructions if you’re not sure where to put your email signature.
If you’re not using an email signature yet, I strongly recommend using one for your business. It’s a small way to promote yourself to other people with links to your website and social media. Every little bit helps, right?

🎮 The Super Mario FPS
Super Mario is a great game. People have been playing it for decades, and people will be playing it long after we’re gone.
Over the years, Nintendo has experimented with a lot of crazy game ideas. Mario Kart was a blast, Luigi’s Mansion was fun, and Super Mario Sunshine was weird. Those are three of dozens of games from the Super Mario library.
However, Mario has never really properly entered the realm of the FPS (First Person Shooter).
No, the fireballs or squirt guns don’t count.
Sean Noonan decided to experiment with this idea by creating a playable version of the first level. No longer do you have to jump over the Goombas. Now you can shoot them with plungers! 😀
It’s a fun little game that you can download at the link for free!
🐙The Land of Random
