So, here's something stupidly exciting - to me at least. One of the big selling points of iPadOS 13.1 is a "desktop class" web browser on the device. The idea was to enable to relatively small number of web apps that didn't play well with iOS to work beautifully on iPads. Targets included Google Docs and WordPress, but for me, the big test would be Ghost, the CMS behind this site.

Well, this is all very encouraging. I've been hoping to move to an iPad Pro for my mobile computing needs, and this is one of the last few things to cross off my list.
