The first night Elana and I were here in Cabo we had dinner at one of the sit down restaurants here at the resort. A nice young guy came by and asked if we wanted a picture taken. We politely declined. On the way out we saw him uploading some of the photos using his MacBook Pro and his iPad. Of course I had to strike up a conversation.
Turns out Samir is French, and had originally come here for an internship in hospitality management. He had decided to come back and start his photography business with a friend. I told him about Dragon Dictation and said goodnight. A short time later he emailed. He had found Gear Diary, liked what he had read and asked if I might be able to give him a quick tutorial on making the most of his iPad. I was more than happy to do so.
Yesterday we spent some time talking about how he might use the iPad more effectively. By the time we were done, not only did Dragon Dictation have a new convert but so did Evernote and Dropbox. Even better, Gear Diary got a new international reader in the process!
If you are in Cabo, check to see if the photographer working is Samir Benyettou. If he is, make sure to say hello and have him take your picture. He’s a great guy and I love seeing someone start his own business equipped with just a camera, a MacBook Pro and an iPad!
