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?
A pair of Bose QC35 II’s used to be my “go everywhere” noise cancelling headphones. Keywords: “used to be.” I wore them to coffee shops when I needed to get out of the house to write.

Why… Read More Orbi vs. eero in a house that’s already (somewhat) wired for ethernet
If you follow Apple news, you’d know that in addition to announcing new iPhones a couple weeks ago, Apple also announced a new way to purchase them — an Apple-branded upgrade program where you can upgrade your phone every year and never have to pay full price for one. The program is similar to programs that… Read More Man, Apple really didn’t want me to use their new iPhone Upgrade program…
JANUARY 2019 UPDATE: Wow, I first wrote this post in 2015 after having quite a bit of difficulty buying a specific combination of watch/band back when Apple seemingly offered every possible combo available at time of purchase. Every combo except the one I wanted, that is.
