Hey Instagram, can we talk about your still-missing iPad app?

I've been using Instagram for a long time. I almost always post my photos to Instagram and then share from there to Facebook and Twitter. I use it enough that I've become somewhat inured to its common limitations — its rough edges and brick walls — most people run into every day. Hearing John Gruber discuss them with Ben Thompson on The Talk Show this week, however, made them all front-of-mind for me again. As such, here are five frustrations I currently have that I'd like to see Instagram tackle this year.

How to keep your iPhone happy during a blizzard

There's a literal storm coming to my not-so-tiny little corner of the world, and various reports have it pegged as "record-breaking," "devastating," and "potentially catastrophic." Happy January 26 to you too, weather service!

As someone who works at home within walking distance of food and water, I don't have to worry much about driving or supreme amounts of shoveling, but I do have to consider my electronics — which not only let me continue to do my job properly, but also let me read Twitter and play Hearthstone and communicate with the outside world while the blizzard does its thing.

HomeKit ramp isn't fast or slow — it's arriving exactly when it means to

Last week, after CES 2015, I wrote about what was taking HomeKit accessories time to hit the shelves. Today, Recode has written about what, in their opinion, is behind the "slow ramp". There's some interesting information in there about chipset availability from Broadcom but, before we can talk about speed to market, I think it's valuable to break down the actual timelines and processes involved.

Here's why Apple might make a stylus for the iPad

There's been a lot of talk lately about styluses — specifically, an Apple-branded stylus pen that might ship alongside the rumored iPad Pro.

As an artist, frequent note-taker, and all-around scribbler, I've wanted a Wacom-esque pressure-sensitive stylus since the iPad's release. I wrote about iPad styluses time and time again as we saw creative developers try and build around the iPad's hardware limitations. I've looked longingly over at Wacom's half-baked tablet solutions. And I haven't been happy.

Could Apple make an iPad stylus that actually fulfilled my wants — and those of other artists — for a tablet next year? It could. But would it want to? This year, quite possibly.

NSFW: My son gets a PC, and I get a lesson in how to build it

NSFW is a weekly op-ed column in which I talk about whatever's on my mind. Sometimes it'll have something to do with the technology we cover here on iMore; sometimes it'll be whatever pops into my head. Your questions, comments and observations are welcome.

A lot of you wrote in to comment on my NSFW column from last week talking about my son's turn to the Dark Side, as I put it, by getting a PC. I'm following up with more info about what we did and what I learned.

SLOWDOWN AND SPEEDUP!!!1, says internet to Apple

Last week, it seemed like you couldn't open the internet without tripping over an opinion piece telling Apple to slow down its pace and shore up its foundation. This week, new opinion pieces are telling Apple to — wait for it — hurry up and innovate faster.

If this all sounds familiar, it's probably because it's what happens every year, though the change between the two refrains isn't always this whiplash-inducingly sudden. So what's going on?
