A must-have for mobile photography.

They say that the best camera is the one you have with you. Well, in my case, that would be my iPhone 12 Pro. While I love the feel of a DSLR, my iPhone is constantly by my side, and therefore, it ends up capturing 99% of the photos I take these days. Even though the iPhone 12 Pro’s camera adjusts beautifully for low-light situations, it still takes better photos when there is proper lighting available. Most people wouldn’t think about carrying around light with their iPhone on the off case that you might need extra lighting for photos. …


Declutter your desk with a classy Headphones Holder from König & Meyer

The König and Meyer Kopfhörerhalter Headphone holder arrived in a 4 1/4 inches wide by 3 3/8 inches tall by four inches thick retail box. The main and back panels provided the K&M (Stands For Music) name/logo along the top of the panel, the Kopfhörerhalter name to the left, a Made In Germany logo/5-year warranty along the bottom left, and an attractive image of the headphone holder toward the bottom right. I liked the patchwork green triangles along the top left corner and the fade to white color scheme toward the bottom right of the front/back panels. The right side…


So good you’ll forget it’s an energy drink

I’ve been a big fan of energy drinks for a long time — especially one in a bright blue bottle. One day I was at my local grocery store to get a bottle of that particular drink and when I went to pick one up, I found they were sold out. At that point in time, I knew I needed some sort of pick me up, and that’s when I discovered UPTIME. It was light and had a fresh, fruity flavor to it that other energy drinks don’t. I’ve been a fan of it ever since that first chance encounter…


A versatile, powerful, and accessible docking station that suits all your needs.

It’s been nearly a year since I stepped foot into a physical office space. I changed jobs last year at the beginning of September and at that time, my new employer was having our staff work 100% remotely from our homes. This was, of course, due to the pandemic, but as it turns out, our intimate team of 13 works well in this fashion. We’ve found ways to connect with each other digitally and set up our own workspaces in our homes. One of the most essential pieces of technology that I’ve needed during this time is a docking station…


A great option for a minimal case.

In the past year, I’ve tried to cut back on items I carry from place to place. Instead of carrying full-size laptop bags, sometimes I just grab a sleeve for my laptop so that it’s well-protected while I’m on the go. With that in mind, I like sleeves that have a slim profile so that if I choose to pair it with a bag or backpack, I have that option. The Compact Sleeve w/BIONIC from Incase is a great option for a minimalist laptop carrying case.

The Compact Sleeve is designed to complement the form of the MacBook. It’s created…


Make the most of your everday carry items.

2020 was a year like no other and it really made people evaluate their everyday routines. I know one thing I changed up was how many personal items I take with me into public places. I had concerns — especially early on in the year — about spreading infection to my household. So, I tried to make sure that I only took what I absolutely needed into stores. After it was no longer an urgent necessity, I discovered that I really enjoy the minimalist nature of what my everyday carry items became. One of the items that made this a…


The dock that makes a clock from your Apple Watch.

I’ve been a fan of the Apple Watch since it was first released six years ago. I’ve had just about every variation that has been released and I wear it daily. Like a lot of users, I charge my watch at night. I have a charging dock by my bedside that takes care of the power for my iPhone and my Apple Watch. And, even though the dock allows for Nightstand mode, it can be a little hard to see the watch face, which is exactly what the NightWatch dock is designed to help with. …


Embrace the comfort, Enjoy the sound, without the Pricetag.

When it comes to time-wasting opportunities, it seems that there are plenty. Our smartphones/tablets have moved beyond their base functions and have become personal portable mini-computers. As an early adopter of the PDA, the Nokia, the smartphone, and the tablet, I never dreamed that it might one day obviate the need to own a desktop computer, a camera, a radio, and a television. Despite the presence of speakers, however, the devices still have not eliminated the need for a quality pair of headphones. Whether you chose on-ear, in-ear, or over-ear devices or opt for portable vs. wired Bluetooth speakers, you…


Get a grip with Gripmunk.

As I transitioned to the iPhone 12 Pro last fall, there were a lot of new features I wanted to make sure I took advantage of. One of the most important to me was the addition of MagSafe charging. I remember when MagSafe charging really only applied to the connector between a charger and a MacBook Pro, but now it refers to magnetic, wireless charging for iPhones. I recently installed a MagSafe compatible phone mount in my car so I like to make sure I can use it whenever I’m driving around town. …


Perfect in more ways then one

I have been adjusting my home office for years and I’ve never quite gotten it just the way I want until recently. One thing that was missing for a while was a space dedicated to photography. I’ve tried using my desk in the past, but because I have other gear on it, I realized I really needed a dedicated space for photography instead. The Sun-Flex EasyDesk Pro has helped me to create that needed space as well as serve in other capacities. …
