Gear for New York trip

by Volker Weber


iPad Pro 9.7", Apple Pencil, Microsoft Wedge Keyboard,
Universal Cable, Microsoft Powerbank
Apple Watch with Sport Band
iPhone 6S Plus, Olloclip Active Lens

Not in the photo: 5 port USB charger, power lead, BlackBerry Priv (shot this photo), two Lightning cables, one Watch cable, one USB cable.

The keyboard has a foldable protector that doubles as a stand. What you see here is about two pounds. Trying to stay below 10 pounds, including the (messenger) bag. Two nights in hotel, one night on the plane.


Volker, what brand is the 'Universal Cable'?

Did you ever consider the MacBook 12" instead of iPad/flying keyboard? Just bought one for my wife and she could not be happier ... size and weight should be almost the same as the ipad/keyboard combination.

Markus, I don't know. That was swag I got from MobileIron at CeBIT. It's MFI certified though.

Axel, absolutely. Brilliant machine. If I didn't already have a Retina MacBook Pro, I would buy that immediately.

Interesting to work like that.

BTW, is is feasible to connect from an ipad 9.7 to a windows PC using remote logon a VPN tunnel? I mean, is it OK to work with that screen?
