Yes, I love my Apple stuff. I use a MacBook, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, Oh, and AirPods. Enough stuff to put 'em all in a little folder of their own here.

I'll cover individual items separately, but a lot of the value in Apple's stuff comes from using them together, along with the services, mainly iCloud, that connect them.

Some don't like the closed nature of the Apple ecosystem. I've used Windows, and I've used Linux, including Slackware in the early days, and SuSE was my main OS for a couple of years. I also used to reinstall Windows and defrag my hard drive for entertainment. Now I want to use my computer and devices, I don't want them to be the hobby.

Some examples of how iCloud connects different devices to make them better together...
