Apple’s Big Day; Hello 5G; Amazon Eyes DC; Mavic Air Hands On

It’s Apple Day. Hey LanceListers! This newsletter’s coming to you straight from the heart of Apple-ness: Cupertino, California. In just a few short hours, I’ll be sitting in the Steve Jobs Theater on the all-new Apple Park Campus, waiting for Apple CEO Tim Cook to finally reveal all the new goodies. We expect new iPhones, a new Apple Watch and, maybe a few other things.
I’ll be tweeting out the whole thing like a mad man, but you can also watch the live stream where, if they pan over the audience, you might even catch a glimpse of me! Also, stay tuned to my feeds after the announcements for insta-hands-ons of all the new gadgets. It’s Christmas-time for geeks!

5G is here. We’ve been promised 5G for so long that it’s beginning to feel like a unicorn technology. No networks, no phones, no dice. But unlike the unicorn that will never materialize, 5G is slowly, but surely arriving. Verizon, for instance, is about to deliver 5G networks to…homes. Sorry no mobile service just yet, but up to 300 Mbps of connectivity in houses with no data caps. It’s coming. For real.

Amazon new the Hill. Don’t tell the President, but Amazon’s Jeff Bezos may be leaning toward Washington, D.C., for the new Amazon headquarters, or HQ2. Boy Genius Report points to a number of intriguing signs that point to the Beltway (or someplace near-ish it) for the ecommerce giant’s digs. While no one expects the announcement this week (even as Bezos holds a meeting with the local Economics Club), most believe it will be a done deal by the end of the year. If it does go D.C.’s way, Trump is gonna love his new neighbor.

Fly away. I finally got some extended hands-on time with one of my favorite drones, the DJI Mavic Air. Sure there are bigger and more powerful drones (especially the ones DJI just announced), but the Air is just a perfect balance of size, portability and performance.
