It’s been a while since I wrote a How-To article, but as it turns out, in a review that I’m working on, I needed to solve an issue before being able to do a video review. My problem was this: I needed to be able to record multiple webcam videos simultaneously in order to compare the recordings. Sure, there are apps that can do this, but I wanted to stay simple and use stock apps on my Mac. Enter QuickTime Player, which is a great tool for making simple recordings. Unfortunately, “out of the box,” you can only record one stream at a time. That is until I did some research! You can actually lau ..read more

The Apple Watch stands as a symbol of innovation and style. However, while the Apple Watch Ultra and Ultra 2 cater to the active lifestyle with their default fabric bands, many users crave a more refined and business-appropriate look. That would be me! I started short-listing many metallic (stainless steel and titanium) Apple Watch bands to wear at the office or for a night on the town. The SANDMARC Titanium Band, a sleek accessory designed to elevate the aesthetics of your Apple Watch Ultra and Apple Watch Ultra 2, was at the top of my list.

The demand for adaptable and efficient lighting solutions has actually become “a thing.” With the proper lighting, your desk or work environment takes on a whole new feel. But when you have more of a mobile environment, like with a laptop, getting a good, portable, well-lit environment can become a challenge. You can’t always depend on a desk or overhead light to cast the best glow. And if you are in bed, it’s even more difficult. I recently received the BenQ LaptopBar Light for review and think BenQ has come up with an elegant solution for this mobile lighting we seek. (*Disclosure ..read more

Power outages, however brief, can send jolts of inconvenience through our daily lives, disrupting not just our routines but also leaving us wondering about the safety of our families and if we are prepared for more extended “power events.” Recently, I found myself in the throes of a couple of short-lived power outages, each lasting just long enough to render my home temporarily offline. As I reset blinking clocks and rebooted my WiFi router, I started thinking about a more formidable scenario – what if the power outage extended beyond a few minutes into hours or even days? These power events ..read more

This Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger has one really unique & helpful feature – Review
HighTechDad - ...where technology and fatherhood collide
by Michael Sheehan

There are many, many charging solutions available for your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. Some of them even charge all three of these devices simultaneously. But when I got a briefing from Zagg and Mophie on the Mophie 3-in-1 Extendable Stand Charger, I realized that this particular charging stand would be perfect for my wife. Why? Because she precariously balanced a charging stand on top of some Tupperware when she used it to charge and use her iPhone in the kitchen. This drove me a bit up the wall because her solution was unstable and not very aesthetically pleasing. This has now ch ..read more

I could probably write most of this review talking about different use cases for this gadget. It’s one of those devices you suddenly can’t believe you don’t have once you learn about it. And, believe it or not, until recently, I DIDN’T have one – and I can think back to some problematic occasions where I now realize that it would have made a huge difference if I DID have one. What I’m talking about here is the Sanyipace Borescope. Sounds like a medical device, right? Well, it is…sort of…as long as you are NOT using it on your body but instead around the home or work.
