iPad vs. iPad Mini

I had a client ask me recently about the iPad mini and previously I did some research but hadn’t actually blogged about it.   Initially everyone I asked had mixed reviews, some loved it and well, some hated it.   I will try and be objective from many of the reviews I have read and people I have talked with.



·         iPad mini is 23 percent thinner, 53 percent lighter

·         7.9 inches ( So great to put in a purse, bag, briefcase)

·         5‑megapixel photos and shoots full 1080p HD video

·         Significantly less moola than an iPad

Most of the people I talked to bought the iPad mini because it was cheaper and smaller.  


·         16 if aren’t planning on buying a ton of apps and videos and you won’t keep loads of photos

·         32 if you are an average user and will download a few apps

·         64 if you love to view and test apps, take photos and videos, watch TV and movies.


Check out Apple’s comparison chart if you can’t decide on which iPad to buy.


The iPad Mini will be great for those who want to take it everywhere you go, if you prefer only a few games rather than a real gamer, if you want to do a bit of work on it but not all day long and you want to browse the web but don’t mind having to zoom in on the smaller screen to enlarge text.  The smaller display is OK for things like watching movies, reading books and playing some games but you don’t want to work on a large excel sheet on it!

Tomato Time Management in 2013

As you might guess, I'm a big fan of tools and ideas that increase productivity, especially when thinking about how to improve my results in the coming year.

For the past few months, I've been trying out a time management process called the Pomodoro Technique. This system has made a huge difference in my ability to stay focused on the task in front of me and get more done throughout the day. I wanted to pass this time management practice on to you, it's free and they have a quick overview video here:

I'd love to hear if the Pomodoro system works for you as well.

Thank you for all of your support in 2012 and here's to an amazing 2013!
