Devices We Love: Samsung Tab S4

If you have followed the Entropy Blog over the past several years you will know we are unabashed iPad Pro fanatics. We were all over the first 12.9-inch iPad Pro way back in 2015, and even launched a series of posts detailing life in a software development agency using only the iPad Pro as our main machine. So yeah, we love that machine. But here's the thing, although iOS 11 brought a TON of new (and badly needed) features to the iPad Pro (including a desktop-like Dock, better multitasking, a...

MWC 2018 Thoughts

As I sip my coffee and stare down another long day on my feet here in Barcelona, I wanted to get a few quick notes down on my initial impressions of Mobile World Congress 2018 thusfar.For starters, it has an decidedly *odd* feel this year. Maybe that's because there's no congruent theme running through the show like, say, Smartwatches in 2015 or VR in 2016, or even IoT in 2017. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but so far I have the feeling most exhibitors are kinda going through the motion...
