Build Your Own Standing Desk for $350.00

Alright first off if you’re in the market for an electric standing desk, you’ll notice to take ownership of this flagship of technological innovation that is a “standing desk” you’ll need to shell out five Benjamins (or more!). That just wasn’t a price that screamed “value” to me. So I set out on the digital trail to see what could be pieced together with help from the Amazon and Ikea overlords of furniture and retail. Heres the journey…and the desk! Read More

Led Monitor Backlights

With the purchase of my new Dell 34 inch monitor, I decided to add some led backlights to the monitor. I’ve read some of the benefits but wasn’t sure if I would like them.

After a few days of use, I would definitely recommend them to anyone. They are cheap and easy to install. They can be powered from a usb port on the back of your monitor and cut to fit any size monitor. Currently they are on sale if you use the promo code GT8OMP06 at checkout.

Amazon Drive Review 2017

After researching cloud storage providers, I decided to use Amazon Drive. Their main selling points for me were unlimited storage for $59.99 a year and their data security and integrity.

I use Amazon Drive to backup of files, photos and videos. So far I’ve managed to use 131.7 GB, which isn’t as much as I thought I would use. Unlimited storage is great but they know most people will only use so much. Read More

Fitbit Charge 2 Review

My first experience with a fitness tracker was back in 2011 when I purchased the Jawbone Up band. Unfortunately it had some technical issues and I was able to return it. Besides the issues, I enjoyed it even though it lacked features such as bluetooth syncing and a display. Fast forward 5 years, I finally decided to try another fitness tracker.

I have several friends/family that own Fitbit’s. They seem to be the leading the social side of fitness trackers. I liked the features/design of the Fitbit Charge HR, but I was holding out for a larger screen and text notifications. About 3 weeks ago Fitbit released the Fitbit Charge 2. It has most of the features I was looking for. Read More

Wifi Extender

After my TP-LINK N300 wireless extender started to fail, I decided it was time to upgrade to a more reliable wifi extender. One of the first websites I check for tech product reviews is The WireCutter.  I decided to purchase the NETGEAR AC1200 WiFi Extender from their review. Overall I’ve been happy with the range and performance. I did have trouble with the first time setup because I was using my iPhone and couldn’t click some buttons. Once I tried from my laptop I was able to get everything setup. Read More
