FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK

This is it the final newsletter of the first half of 2013. Yikes I can't believe we are half way through the year already. It has been such a great half for me personally and I feel as if I have achieved so much in my personal life and career this half. I certainly hope that you have too.

 

One of my goals for the first half which I will admit I considered a stretched goal was to do my desktop certification. Those that follow this newsletter will know that I have struggled to just dedicate enough time to this task and as a result I did not write my desktop exam rather opting to do this later in the year. I will keep you all posted in the progress.

 

As many of you know I publish this newsletter each week on my iPad Mini. This has in the past year become my life, I spend more time on the mini than any other device and see no reason for this to end anytime soon. So many have questioned how I am able to work just using an iPad but it is really very easy. Firstly anything that is really good on a mini I use the device for exclusively such as reviewing documents, web browsing and news. Next if I need a full desktop I turn to my trusty VMware View desktop from my iPad as the client. Finally anything that cannot be done on the mini I use my MacBook Pro for. This tends to be less than 20 percent of the time now. I am totally converted and love it. Thanks Apple and VMware.

 

Kind Regards
