Is the iPhone XS Max worth the price?

Is the iPhone XS Max worth the price?

Yesterday, Dennis Sellers published a very good article on Apple World Today stating that even though the new iPhones are indeed expensive, they are worth the money. I concur with Dennis on this and want to add some reasons the price of the new iPhones are definitely worth the cost to me. The prices of the new iPhones range from $999 to $1449.

Tesmo Universebook: A notebook with built-in wireless and USB chargers

It must be the summer of analog notebooks! A few weeks ago I reviewed Pad & Quill's Journal Notepads, which are actually paper notebooks (the type you write on with a pen) from a company that usually makes Apple-related accessories. Today I'm looking at the Tesmo Universebook, a product on Kickstarter that's a paper notepad/planner and wireless/wired charger in one. The Universebook is currently at almost three times its funding goal with almost a month to go, and I was able to test one of the prototypes for Apple World Today.
