Microsoft Surface Book 2 (15 inch)

No-one can beat Microsoft on hybrid laptops. The removable screen and the high performance of the hybrid laptop impressed greatly. The Surface Book 2 comes in sizes of 13.5” and 15”. The 15” is much bigger than one might think when removing the keyboard and using it as a very light weight tablet. The 15” version is great for gaming as it includes the powerful Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics chip that gives you a great frame rate even in demanding games, and provides significantly better performance than the little brother. On paper, the 15” is much better, but at the cost of taking a lot more space in my bag on the way to work and not being as portable especially when used in tablet mode.

Abba Patio 10x10 ft Outdoor Pop Up Canopy

I recently had the chance to try out the Abba Patio Outdoor Pop Up Canopy. I have to say I resisted this type of thing for a long time. We always seem to need one for one event or another and I was happy to borrow from a friend, but never wanted to invest in one myself because they are typically so heavy and awkward to both store and move around as well as being difficult to put up. The Abba version may have made a convert out of me.

The Ultimate Guide To Home Networking

If you have ever had problems with your home network not performing the way it needs to, here's the gist of what you need to know to resolve the most common issues. I recently made a major upgrade to my WiFi and internet router after my parents and brother stayed with us and there suddenly were 7 people surfing the internet and watching YouTube at the same time on their tablets and cell phones.

My internet router (and WiFi hotspot) located in our master suite on the other side of the house came to an unusable crawl with the sudden spike in usage. I have built many large networking solutions in corporate environments and private homes, so the state of affairs in my own home was unacceptable. Here's how I solved this immediate crisis and also future proofed my house, so my home network does not embarrass me again and I do not have to spend much time maintaining it.



Abba Patio 9 by 9-Feet Square Offset Cantilever Umbrella

I live in Southern California and my family spends a lot of time outside, but the sun can be brutal in the summertime and well into the fall. Shade is absolutely essential to being even close to comfortable during the day. For us, the Abba Cantilever Offset Umbrella was a great fit for our backyard. It was very easy to assemble and when not in use it folds up and is completely out of the way.



How Do I Choose The Right Camera For Me?

Let's get to the gist of the problem. There is no camera that is right for everyone or every occasion. Building such a camera is not possible. It's all a trade-off between photographer skill, camera size, cost, post processing needs and final image usage. Let's figure out what type of photographer you are first and then give some clear recommendations of what you should buy.



Decalrus - Protective Decal Skin Sticker

As I sit here typing on my laptop, I have to say I love this skin. My new laptop lid was getting scratched up living in my bag along with a coiled notebook and it was making me crazy – I don’t even like to break the spines on my books!



Abba Patio Outdoor Swing Canopy Hammock

The latest addition to our backyard entertaining space is the Abba Patio Swing. I have always envisioned a large house with a big wrap-around porch and a quaint porch swing for long summer afternoons listening to music and sipping lemonade. As it turns out, I didn’t end up with the large house to support a large porch, let alone a swing. This sturdy little two-seater hearkens back to that vision in my head and our family has spent a number of afternoons and evenings enjoying the swing this summer.



Spigen R12S Bluetooth Speaker Review

The gist of it is that this speaker delivers great sound for its size. With its innovative and intuitive controls, it's also very simple to use. It pairs easily to all my devices and it is now a permanent part of my beach bag, allowing my entire family to enjoy music while catching some rays.
