“Awesome phone! We bought 10 of them for our mobile auto repair business. It’s very user friendly and has everything we need to run a bit more efficient.” – Chad C.,

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the new flagship phone model of the multinational conglomerate. With the disastrous battery of the Note 7, the S8 is expected to be Samsung’s redemption and its only chance to regaining its title as the top Android brand in the world.

When it comes to the design, Samsung Galaxy 8 can definitely be considered as one of the most beautiful and polished phones so far. It is tall and narrow, and just fits snugly in a normal sized palm.  Continue reading “Samsung Galaxy S8 Review”

Altwork Station Review: When is a Worktable not a Worktable?

This is a follow up post to my Altwork Station Preview that I posted a while back.

Most office work these days tend to involve a desk, a PC, and a chair. Despite the various advancements in ergonomics, not all work desks are comfortable. But then again, there’s always Altwork. It’s so different that just about every Altwork Station review raves about it.

It’s not really a matter of whether the Altwork is effective. It IS. The main objection, right now, is that it is rather expensive. It starts at about $4,000 and with customization options the cost can go up to $6,000. Still, if you get it as a gift (from someone who loves you a lot) then you’ll probably be thrilled to put it in your office.

Here are the highlights: Continue reading “Altwork Station Review: When is a Worktable not a Worktable?”

Learn How To Use The Yeti USB Microphone

Learn How To Use The Blue Yeti USB Microphone

Here’s my general tech advice: Before judging your tech devices, learn how to use it properly first.

I purchased a blue microphone Yeti USB Microphone from Amazon because I do a lot of voice over screencasts and I wanted a quality microphone that gave me that “radio voice”. Not that I have a radio voice but I wanted a mic that records a clear sound that eliminated background noise and the muffled sounding audio that my stock Mac microphone or the Apple earbud headset provided.

So, I purchased the Yeti USB microphone because of the positive 4 1/2 average star review and doing some of my own due diligence about the product. It seemed promising.

Once I received the Yeti within a week, I hooked it up immediately and got to work recording my screencasts. The set up was super easy as it is literally a “plug-and-play” device. No special software was needed. It just worked with the software that I already use which is Screencast-o-matic. Just plug it into the USB port with the provided wire and GO! Well, at least that’s what I thought.

After recording a video for a business prospect of mine, I was excited to hear my awesome “radio voice” (ha!) on the screencast. But to no avail, it sounded like crap! It literally sounded worse than my stock Mac mic or the Apple headset.

I played around with the dials that are on the Yeti and re-recorded the video. Still. I swear I re-recorded the video several times. I was turned off by the punchy “p” sounds, and harsh “t’s”. In the recording I could hear everything from my chair squeaking to the fan blowing in the background. I was pretty disgusted and disappointed with the mic.

I guess that’s where I was ignorant. After doing some research I learned my lesson. I searched for “how to use the Yeti USB Microphone” on YouTube and got schooled. To get that desired “radio voice”, the microphone needs to be used and set up to the proper settings. DUH Bee! I know, I know… Here’s what I missed:

Altwork Workstation Preview

Altwork Workstation Preview

For 15 years of my life I’ve worked in the kitchen as a preparation cook, line cook, manager, general manager, caterer, etc. Several years before that I worked for a roofing company. So I spent majority of the time on my feet throughout my careers. 8, 12, 15… 20 hours on my feet was a norm for me. There was no such thing as sitting down during my job. Only when I became a manager/general manager I stayed off my feet for a fraction of the day for meetings and paperwork.

After those 15 years, I killed my job and left my career in the restaurant industry and am currently working on building a online marketing business from home – which is doing quite well I must say. The transition from being on my feet for majority of the day to sitting on an office chair for 3-4 hours at a time is revealing. I now understand why there are office chairs that sell for $200 plus in the stores. Continue reading “Altwork Workstation Preview”

Hermes Apple Watch Replica

Hermes Apple Watch Replica

From my last post I’ve been asked how did I replicate the Hermes Edition Apple Watch.

Quite simple I found the “knockoff” Apple Watch Hermes band on Amazon. Well, it’s not marketed as a knockoff (I don’t think Amazon let’s you market, no less sell knockoffs) so that’s why I think people have a difficult time finding it. On Amazon, they do sell the replicas of the different style bands Hermes offers which are the single tour, double tour, double tour long, and the cuff. I chose the classy cuff

The Hermes replica band is very nice actually. I’m sure the Hermes quality is way more superior, that’s given, but the replica looks quite similar and the leather has been holding up pretty well. I just love it.

Here’s comparison pictures of the real Hermes band and the replica band. Continue reading “Hermes Apple Watch Replica”

Do You Really Need An Apple Watch?

Do You Really Need An Apple Watch?

The Apple Watch, I must say, is a pretty neat gadget. Its technology is pretty mind-blowing for a small little gadget of a watch.

Now, I’m not going to go into the specifics of describing the watch’s tech, specs, styles, and features. There are tons of resources, blogs, and YouTube videos on that. But I do want to touch on the question that may tip your decision of whether or not you should get an Apple Watch.

I wanted an Apple Watch before I received it as a gift from my other half for Christmas. She knew that I was contemplating on getting it. I wanted it, but I was on the fence on whether I would need it. I’m a watch guy. I like to collect them and rock each of ’em for various situations, circumstances, and events. It’s the appreciation of the time piece that I like. A nice Rolex (although I don’t have one yet) will catch my eye and I will envy to get one. I guess, for me, the watch is a reflection of character. This was one of the reasons why I didn’t want to get an Apple Watch. It’s modern, whereas I’m more into the “classy” stuff.

Other reasons why I didn’t want to get an Apple Watch: Continue reading “Do You Really Need An Apple Watch?”

Gucci Backpack with Interlocking Buckle Review

Gucci Backpack with Interlocking Buckle Review

Product: Gucci Backpack with Interlocking G Detail 246321 in Beige/Brown

Do you see this bag? Just look at it for a second. Really look at it. Do you see its simplicity? But yet you see it’s uniqueness? What about the material? No, it’s a not a regular fabric, no. The size is quite large too, don’t you think? Enough to carry anything and everything you possibly could need, right? This brand and product is not for the ordinary. No, but it is the extraordinary people, doing a little extra, with ordinary things.

If you already own something from Gucci, you’d understand me when I say that the standards at which this company holds their products at and which they create them is stunning. Don’t believe me? Go to a Gucci store and ask them about one of their handbags? Ask them about that shirt in the window and whats its made of. They will tell you that they make their products to last, a lifetime even, that they put thought and reasoning behind the products they create. This is why, I now own, this particular back pack from Gucci. And I bought it while my girlfriend was at the Nordstrom Trend Show…hehehe.

Tech Armor Screen Protector Products

Tech Armor Screen Protector Product Review

One of the world’s most utilized gadgets is obviously the cell phone. It’s on you almost 24/7. Some people can’t live without it, almost becoming a part of them (figuratively).

Think about it, how much of your life, in this day and age, is on your cellphone? How reliant have you become to your cellphone? If your like me, you’re lost if you don’t have your cellphone on you.

With that said, to protect something that is so a part of your life would be a pretty good idea, right?

Imagine if you drop your touch screen cellphone and the glass shatters. The big spider web of cracks renders your phone unusable. You can’t even see what’s on your screen. You can’t even text your friends to tell them the tragedy that just happened. Sharing it on Facebook isn’t even an option. How do you live?!

Now you have to either find Continue reading “Tech Armor Screen Protector Products”
