Product Review: Garmin Vivoactive 3

Back in July I bought the Garmin Vivoactive smartwatch. I liked the device well enough, but the style was a major drawback. I started referring to it as “Michael Scott’s Plasma” because of how ridiculous it looked like on my wrist. But as silly as it looked, I liked the device for

Product Review: A Record of My Vinyl

When I saw the “A Record of My Vinyl” journal on Blogging For Books I was skeptical. I keep track of my collection in Discogs, which makes it very easy to search on the go. But, sometimes it can be slow if my phone is acting up or my data signal isn’t

Product Review: Garmin Vivoactive

After I posted my review of my Timex IQ+ Move, a friend started asking me questions about smartwatches. As I discussed the pros and cons of various platforms with him, I found myself missing an actual smart watch. Or at least a watch with some smart capabilities. When I saw the Garmin

Product Review: Ritual Vitamins

I’ve been spending time focusing on my health lately, and part of that was reevaluating my daily multi-vitamin. I have been taking GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism for years now, even though I know they aren’t the best for me (they have caffeine, which I don’t love). As I was

Like most people who work at a computer all day, I have some repetitive strain injury (RSI) issues. Using a vertical mouse was a great step towards lessening the pain. As was working these muscles in a different way by playing guitar. But my keyboard has still been a pain point. Up

I Fracking Love My Chromebook

Guys, I fracking love my Chromebook. When I bought my phone, I knew I wasn’t planning on getting another tablet. My phone is big enough to fit most my tablet use cases at this point, and tablets are expensive. I still wanted a “couch device,” and had planned on buying a new

iOrange-E Cable/Adapter Mega Review

I’m not usually one to go for expensive cables. As long as it meets spec, and has a decent connector, I’m pretty happy. But that’s the trick with USB-C right now. It’s new, and there are a lot of cables flooding the market that are not actually made to spec. It was
