    It's simple, my friend.

    Swap the red text below with "Dstrauss's Tablet"

    Then, swap these dots left of the TPCR logo an animated gif of his current tablet, spinning around continuously.

    Thanks, but I'll take the device on the left. And you can keep the leash too.

    Yes - 4gb - from what I've seen mostly useful for more open Chrome windows, photo editing, etc.

    Geez guys, I'm not worth the trouble, truly...I'll just change my avatar for you (at least for a while)...

    Haha, "the knight on his quest". I love it! (feel sorry for the horse :p)

    Your quest is half the spirit of the forums, but the other half is actually using the dam things!

    The other question is who is @dstrauss Sancho Panza?

    That one is easy. It would be @Bronsky riding along on his donkey first in the shape of a Surface 3 then a Go when he doesn't let the animal step all over his device trying to subtly tell his Master that, yes, there are solutions out there if you just stop fighting those corporate wind mills.

    It's up to you folks to fill in that other half...

    And now to blow your mind 100%, I am sitting here with both the iPM5 and iPP 10.5 on my desk, torn between which one to send in - my daugter (my Apple expert) pointed out it is only the old style magazines that are harder to read on the iPM5 - the ones using Apple's design language, such as National Geographic and SI, are perfectly readable on the iPM5 - for whatever reason they scroll upwards and have better (and larger) typefaces, while older mags like Forbes scroll right to left (as in turning pages) and they have smaller typefaces and no links from the table of contents.

    Decision time by 5:00pm CDT as one or the other goes back to Apple. It could very well be @darkmagistric 's folio case with the pen slot for the iPM5 that breaks the tie...

    Do you see my squire in that avatar? Are you looking for a sidekick role?

    The dev forums for Apple news are full of those exact complaints from what I understand. And Apple's message is "well if you follow our full guidelines, it scales beautifully from iPhone 8 to iPad Pro 12.9 and all in between.

    Another anecdotal data point about the mini... According to our Apple Rep, sales of the mini in to corporate and government has been "off the charts". And she thinks it's not pent up demand as much as form factor and pencil support with large health care and manufacturing purchases.

    As to the side kick position, I get kicked plenty in my current job :)
