I recently created my first new field communication (NFC) tags, and I’m amazed at how easy it was and how much it can do. This advanced technology is actually affordable and easy. What’s an NFC tag? Basically, it’s a sticker, or card, that you can scan with a NFC reader, like your phone, and it […]
I’m an Apple fanboy. What can I say?
I love apps, specifically Mac apps. I’m always on the lookout for something new, something to make my day easier, or just something fun to try. Occasionally I find something great, and I’d like to share some of those apps with you. Paste Not sure how anyone can live with just one clipboard. Paste gives […]
My father-in-law brought me a multi-use USB cable that he got free at some conference. It has one USB-A end, one USB-C end, and one combined micro USB and lightning cable. That’s right, combined!

When I updated to iOS 11 one of the first things I noticed was that search was broken. I would search for “Ama” and iOS would find Amazon Music but not the Amazon app. I could also search for “Shop” and it couldn’t find the Shopkick app. In these examples, they’d only show if I […]
I’ve been looking for a new Markdown editor recently and I have stumbled upon TextNut. It’s a great markdown app with a lot of useful features! One of the first things I was really looking for was the ability to view all my files. I want to use an app that can replace Evernote, or similar notebook, […]
One app for all your chat windows seems to be the new thing right now. I’ve tested out quite a few and most are lacking features or stability. Franz is probably the most popular.
