Despite about a decades worth of plot twists, we have made it through the first half of 2020 and that means it´s summer time! Summer has long been my favorite season…from travel and event season to something as simple as a backyard barbecue, for me the months between May and September are the best part of our yearly ride around the Sun.Like pretty much everyone else on Earth I’ve spent a lot of time staring at the walls of my home recently, so I plan to make up for lost time by spending my fair share of time outside over the coming weeks.

iOS 14 is right around the corner, so if you were thinking about starting off the summer with a new Apple device, my advice would be to hold off until the fall.
This piece from MacRumors goes into detail about what we can expect from the latest generation of devices, including picture-in-picture functionality for a range of apps including FaceTime and improvements to the security suite…unless you need a slightly better camera that badly, I´d wait for the updates.
Well, that´s about all for this week…if you have any more free time to spare in the next few days, check out my YouTube channel full of interesting interviews and my signature brand of brilliance. Thanks as always for joining me for another incredible installment of ¨Brad´s Blog,¨ here’s to a strong second half of 2020!
