A bit about MapHook

Since MapHook was kind enough to provide an iPhone for you all to win, here’s a little about the app: It’s available on iPhone and Android (via the Google Play Store) and is a pretty good way to find interesting things to do, places to eat, and events to see. It can pull data from Yelp, Foursquare, Groupon, Wikipedia, Twitter, and other services, so you can see trending points of interest nearby, wherever you are. You can also create your own “hooks,” or points of interest, and even create a collection of them for other readers. Below is a collection of hooks around New York City, showing places where famous TV shows were filmed.

I have a new favorite portable battery bank for my kids to steal
The Anker MagGo Power Bank.

I have bought too many portable battery banks over the past few years for one reason, and one reason only: I have teenage daughters. And that’s the thing about having kids — your stuff is going to wander off and disappear into the abyss that is their rooms. It’s an inevitability.

And so in preparing for a summer family excursion, I picked up a new battery bank, because I needed something a little more portable for fun time, so I could leave at home the monster battery I carry with me on work trips.

I tested iPadOS 18. It’s not the iPad update I was hoping for
home Screen of an iPad Pro that boots iPadOS 18.

I believe I fit into the iPad Pro’s target audience fairly well. I edit videos to make my sibling’s travel clips look nice on social media. Photo manipulation is a part of my daily routine, and I put in roughly 4 to 5 hours each week labeling images of dental scans for a machine learning training and research project.

I push my M4 iPad Pro as far as I can until I reach the frustratingly short limits of its operating system. Ever since Apple dropped the bombshell of a class-leading 3-nanometer processor being put inside its latest flagship tablet, the chatter of iPadOS finally getting a computing-worthy overhaul kicked into an all-time frenzy.

Don’t forget. You can save big on a replacement Apple Pencil 2 for Prime Day
The 2nd gen Apple Pencil laying on a table.

It's easy to think of Prime Day as the time to pick up new goodies and, from time to time, to check out if that expensive new tech item has dropped down to an affordable price. What we often forget is that Prime Day deals are also a great way to pick up essentials, extras, and replacement items. Right now, this Apple Prime Day deal on the Apple Pencil 2 is a perfect example of that spirit in action. Normally $129, the price has dropped by $50 on the humble Apple Pencil 2, bringing it to $79. Whether you've lost your old one, want a backup, or need a fresh one to go with the iPad Prime Day deal you picked up, now is the time to get an Apple Pencil 2. Tap the button below to pick yours up now, or keep reading to see what makes the Apple Pencil 2 special.

 
Why you should buy the Apple Pencil 2
The number one reason you should buy the Apple Pencil 2 right now is to have a backup or to replace your lost or stolen one while the price is low. But there's always the chance that you haven't had an Apple Pencil 2 before, in which case you should know how it operates. While we'll leave it to our Apple Pencil 2 review to cover the fine details, you should know that the pen detects tilt and pressure as you write. When combined with the low latency of the pen's connection with your tablet, you'll find that writing with it feels very fluid and lifelike. The Apple Pencil 2's convenient wireless charging lets it charge while it is attached to the edge of your iPad, the most likely spot you'd ever want to put it, making having a charged Apple Pencil 2 a thoughtless exercise.
