"My iPad journey began in 2012 when I was treated with cancer. In the first half of the year, right after my diagnosis, I constantly moved between hospitals to talk to different doctors and understand the best strategies for my first round of treatment "These chemo treatments often proved that I was too tired to get some work done. I wanted to continue working for MacStories because it was a healthy distraction that kept my brain busy, but the MacBook Air was uncomfortable to carry around." and I couldn't use it in my car when it lacked a mobile connection, writes Federico Viticci for MacStories. "In contrast, iPad was light, it contained built-in 3G, and it allowed me to stay in touch with MacStories layer from anywhere, anytime with the comfort of a large, beautiful Retina display. "
MacDailyNews Note: Many of us use our MacBooks and MacBook Air devices in cars often ̵1; related to our iPhones, of course. The IPad with Cellular is a minor step, but it's a minor step.
"The tip came when I had to be hospitalized for three consecutive weeks to undergo aggressive chemotherapy; In that period, I concluded that extreme portability and freedom provided by the iPad had become important to me, says Viticci. "I started exploring the idea of using iPad as my primary computer; if something happened to me that prevented being at my desk in the home office, I'd be prepared. That meant including iOS, iPad apps, and another way work on every day. "
" I realized when I wrote this story that I've run MacStories from my iPad longer than I ever ran it from a Mac. The site was last 10 months and I has managed it almost exclusively from an iPad for seven of those years, writes Viticci. "And yet, I still feel that I still adapt to the iPad lifestyle myself – I'm still looking for the best approaches and forcing me to be creative in work around the limitations of the iOS. "

MacDailyNews Take: We will not go into detail but when you are on the road, including many visits at Oncologists Offices, During Operations, Mail operations etc. we went pretty much the opposite: Apple's smallest, lightest MacBooks went with us everywhere – again, linked to the iPhone for connectivity – as we drove MacDailyNews as best we could for the last four of our site is almost seventeen years.
Not that we couldn't have done it with the iPad Pro devices, but we didn't want to handle any learning curves at that time; The Mac which was the second nature was critical during this period.
We are looking forward to iOS 13 to see what it has in the iPad productivity store.
BTW: We know that the site has seemed frozen in time for quite some time. We are sorry and thank you for your patience! On the desk and mobile, this is a design from years past. It will eventually change very soon!
