    Technology usage I’m a pro with Apple’s products. I have an iPhone, an iPad and MacBook Air. I use them all

    the time and carry them around almost everywhere I go because of their portability. At

    home I also like to use Apple TV, because then I can watch Netflix via TV. I love new

    innovative technology because it provides us new ways to operate on a daily basis- at

    school, at work and on your spare time.
