MacNotables #1211: Ted Landau Talks Travel Tech Tips, iPad Word Processing and Apple Decisions

Ted Landau is heading across the pond on vacation, and provides his last update on his travel tech preparations, including his search for the perfect iPad word processor, what he will take, where he will get his connectivity and more. Ted also discusses some of the top decisions of the 21st Century by Apple, which ones were and were not supported by Steve Jobs, and the one that he didn’t include that surprised many of us.

This edition of MacNotables is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the new PDFpen for iPad.
