  • iPad Pro 9.7 Review- This Is The iPad You Were Looking For

    iPad Pro 9.7 ReviewThe iPad has long been a favorite device here at PQ headquarters. It is the tablet that launched our company, and it remains near and dear to our heart down to this day.

However, there is still some room for iOS to grow. Read on for our full review of the iPad Pro 9.7. Continue reading

    When we hear the word "craftsman" it brings to mind many different images. A master carpenter in his workshop surrounded by tools, a chef putting the finishing touches on a dish before it goes out, a musician tirelessly coaxing harmonious notes out of strings and steel, or a mother deftly assembling her children's favorite breakfast of Mickey Mouse pancakes.
