This is great news for media folks and I’ve been saving my pennies to buy one. However, I don’t plan to buy one tomorrow.
Instead, I want to see what the options are, review the pricing and figure out what makes the most sense for my budget.
I’ll write more about this over the weekend for next week’s newsletter.
As always, I’m interested in what you think.
