Peak Design Everyday Sling is a great daily carry bag for more than just photographers

I rarely leave the house without a bag on my shoulder.

Like many, I enjoy the security of knowing I have necessary gear with me (think laptop, battery, cables, camera) everywhere I go, and I understand that that means I also have to deal with that gear — typically in a bag. Size, comfort, flexibility (physically and conceptually) and style are all factors when choosing one. I’ve tried a lot of different bags for this sort of  [Read More…]

Eharmony and Alexa team up to make finding a date that much more weird

I’ve been married for 13 years next week. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to do that in the age of smartphones and dating apps and Instagram and text messages. I am old.

Also: There’s now an Amazon Alexa Skill that ties eharmony to your Amazon account. So you can find more info on potential lifelong partners without even having to pick up your phone, or log into a computer.

Or, as eharmony puts it:

It’s a  [Read More…]

The Star Wars Jedi Challenge is AR-awesome and all I want is more

I got to be Rey and it was so great.

They say that greed and desire are the path to the dark side. I don’t care.

I want to get my hands on the Star Wars Jedi Challenge that Lenovo and Disney have cooked up. Now. I got a brief demo with the Jedi Challenge after its unveiling at IFA 2017 and I think that it and AR games like it are definitely part of the future of gaming.

Vobot is like an Amazon Echo Dot, only slightly more fun (but definitely more flawed)
