g5_mocc88bel02

If you're a geek, and anything like me, then you tend to 'collect' old, dead and dying computers (oh, it's just me then...) ;) But some old hardware is just beautiful and is worth doing something with (rather than just putting in a cupboard and forgetting about). One of the most classic of computer designs was the big aluminium PowerMac G5 towers. Crafted out of brushed metal, they were an instance classic and look as good today as they did when they first came out. Although their interiors ... Continue Reading

Does Multiple Screens Boost Productivity? [Infographic]

Does Multiple Screens Boost Productivity Image

How many monitors do you have? There was a time when my DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) used two, while I did all my office tasks on a laptop—giving me a grand total of three monitors. This made moving to a one screen workstation a little cumbersome. Does having multiple screens boost productivity? Or is it just a perception? ... Continue Reading

Worldwide Travel Plug Guide [Infographic]

I can not imagine this will end well

One of our hurdles moving overseas was figuring out how our electronics would—or wouldn't—function in Italy. Once arriving, we learned that dealing with multiple plug types is far more common in Europe than it was in the United States. For those of you who do much International travel or have some International mission trips under your belt, you're probably already well aware. There's nothing like having a piece of essential electronics, a charger, a power source, but absolutely no way to get ... Continue Reading

Evernote Tablet Dish Pfeiffer

There is no shortage of tablet cases. From shock protection to keyboards to portfolios with notepads. The options are endless. Not to mention all the color combinations.

For a couple of months I’ve used the ZAGG folio keyboard case and despite the small keys it works really well. However, as with most all iPad mini cases, the device is always in landscape ...

Why I Love my Wacom Tablet

wacom

For the past few weeks, I've been doing all the research I can on graphic tablets. Now, graphic tablets are different than the tablets you are probably used to. It is no iPad or Nexus 7. Its specifically built to replace the mouse and be used as an input for your computer. I thought to myself, I am a graphic designer, and a graphic designer should use a tablet, right? Well, the answer to that is sometimes. It certainly isn't for everyone, but for those who will push through the learning curve, ... Continue Reading
