Archives for December 2016

2017? The world will see you now.

Whoa.. Another year gone.

A year. A whole year. Man, I can’t believe that.

Things happened in 2016:

  • Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, he moves in to the White House in January.
  • The half-revolutionary-half-silly Macbook Pro was released. See this for one reason.
  • Britain voted to leave the European Union.
  • The same day as Brexit, David Cameron resigned from being Prime Minister and handed over to Teresa May.
  • Many celebrities died – see this.
  • And one very special thing, for me: I created this blog.

Bring it on, 2017.

Rest in Peace, 2016. 

This year, we have lost many, many people. David Bowie, who ‘revolutionised music’, Gene Wilder, famous for playing Willy Wonka in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape in all 7 Harry Potter movies, and now Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia from Star Wars, and her mom, Debbie Reynolds, who starred in ‘Singing in the Rain’.

Rest in peace, 2016, and everyone who lost lives within the year, and their families. I wish you all a happier new year.

Comment your thoughts of this year, highs, lows, and memories, down below.
Farewell, 2016.

This week’s BEST KICKSTARTER PROJECT: the Hyperdrive!

Hey there!

Welcome to this week’s BEST Kickstarter Project: The Hyperdrive!!

‘World’s Most Compact, Fastest 50Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Hub for MacBook Pro. Adds HDMI, USB 3.1 x 2, microSD/SD, Thunderbolt 3 & USB-C’

No, it’s not part of the Millennium Falcon, for those Star Wars fans out there (including me!)

It’s a dongle. For your Macbook Pro 2016.  But not just a normal dongle. It’s an ultimate dongle. So you don’t have to do this:

or this: 

Just read the reviews!

It doesn’t have MagSafe, but that’s because Apple patented it.

And it uses both Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports to make it 10x faster than other dongles; 50GB/s!

You can connect BOTH 4K HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 Displays at the same time! Pick up the LG UltraFine 5K then!

It’s target, $100,000 has been SMASHED! It is now (at time of publishing), on $740,630! Crazzyy!

 

My family and I may not have ANY Apple devices/products in our house, but this is still awesome!

Adiós,

This week’s BEST KICKSTARTER PROJECT: The Dashbot!

Hey there!

Welcome to this week’s BEST Kickstarter Project: The Dashbot!

‘AI-powered hands-free car accessory. Control your music, maps, and messages without touching your phone. Put Alexa in your car!’

The Dashbot is a very clever idea. Most people have their directions/music on their phone. With the Dashbot – never again.
Created by the Next Thing Co., it gives you music, directions, texts, emails, and even Alexa. Yes, Amazon’s Alexa AI bot is inside this tiny little speaker. Now – I own the Amazon Echo Dot, and it’s really cool. But – having it in your car… well! That is awesome..
Keep your phone in your pocket. Just say ‘Dashbot,…’

It supports Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, Google Play Music, MP3s, and even FM Radio!

Oh – and to make it better? It’s open-source. And run’s Linux. And I’m sure someone out there can make it run Doom!

So, thats it for this weeks Best Kickstarter Project.

Adiós,
