    Greetings!

    So, I am new to the Mac / iOS ecosystem. I literally am awaiting my shipment for my iPad Pro, my MacBook Pro, and I already have my new iPhone 11 Pro.

    This has been a very hard pill for me to swallow, but I am hoping that my investment pays off.

    With the recent events of "G's" recent outcry of poor treatment of employees, privacy concerns, and above all being found guilty of violating COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act); I found myself at odds with supporting a company that fragrantly and willingly violates the law, and felt I could no longer patronize their products.

    Having just bought a Pixel 4 XL, I literally bought out the phone and traded it in for my iPhone 11 Pro. I am getting used to it...struggling at times, but slowly figuring it out. I honestly could not be more pleased so far!

    In the meantime, I have discarded 3 G-Nest Mini's, 1 G-Nest Hub, and an old Android tablet. I have also transferred all of my services away from "G".

    In the spirit of 'refreshing' my tech life, I also ditched my Samsung SmartTV because the preloaded apps and advertisements were so obtrusive and annoying. I snagged a very nice plain-jane 4K TV without any type of "smarts", and purchased the most current generation of Apple TV through work - and I am LOVING IT!

    So, here I am!
