My day job is as a TV writer/producer, which is one of the reasons I don’t post as often I used to (the other reason: three kids 6 years old and younger). As Hollywood has shifted to virtual meetings, I’ve been looking for ways to improve the Zoom/Bluejeans/Google Meet experience. When I pitch a project… Read More The Elgato Cam Link 4K vs the Elgato HD60 S+ — Which is better for MacBook Pro users looking to take their Zoom meetings to the next level?
I like the new Apple AirPods Pro. My old AirPods (purchased the day they came out) were getting a little long in the Bluetooth, so the upgrade was an easy decision.

Earlier in the summer, I bought a new MacBook Pro at Best Buy. That’s all I bought, just the laptop. Before the sales rep rung me up, though, he grabbed a retail box of software off the shelf, told me it’s included for free. I said “no thanks, if I wanted to use anti-virus software, I wouldn’t be buying… Read More Did your new computer come with free packaged software? Here’s why you shouldn’t open it.
My HP Laserjet 1200. 2001 – 2014. You will be missed. 13 years is long time for any piece of computer equipment. Sure, printers have gotten faster and more colorful, but for an aspiring writer living in his parents’ house just after college, this affordable laser printer was a godsend. Back then, if you wanted to proof… Read More R.I.P. The best tech purchase I ever made…
