For the content creators we have add-ons for your laptops when out in the field:

The big news is, of course, the versatility for the reader.

If you don’t need all of the card reader capabilities, you def need a few extra ports!

Prices are coming down , and keep an eye out for Black Friday deals. The 1TB is currently about $230

For the home or rad, this folding laptop stand is the best!

I bring this into every company I go to and it sits in my apt loaded with a laptop otherwise.

If you are an iPad person, or just prefer that screen for you workflow or entertainment flow,
The good designers’ at Twelve South, have come out with a smart, well made, iPad holder, that can be used on a table top OR clamped onto a ledge, to hang down to you preferred level.
The Hover Bar Duo Comes in at about $80
It even has a digital pen well, when used in the desktop mode.
Heavy base, so you know it won’t tip over with the weight of a full-size iPad.
It’s a simple , and super useful product with a good price.

This is the company that came out with the best thing in flying,
As most of us are using Bluetooth headsets, airlines have not yet caught up to this trend. The AirFly is not just what you want, but what you want to give as a gift!
Forget recording the events on the plane and just sit back , relax and wear your personal head set watching a free movie

It’s the AirFly!

 

Between $40 and $60 dollars.
A great tool for anyone using BT: Plane, Gym, Car, even your new vinyl turntable.

I don’t travel without it.

Speaking of your Bluetooth earbuds, The best case I have found comes from Catalyst.


Solid construction, well designed, and you can wirelessly charge the airpods, or use a cord to charge, 330ft Waterproof Total Protection Case for AirPods Pro, Secure Locking System, Full-Body Protective Rugged case for AirPods Pro, Shockproof

It comes with a carabiner  but I just put in my bag.
I have tried many of these, and this one has the best features I’ve found.
A gift, stocking stuffer, or for yourself, a def buy at $50

For the home office, make sure you have an upgraded camera like the Logitech Brio.

Built in laptop or tablet cams are terrible and this unit , hard to get during the pandemic is a solid 4k camera with adjustment tools for lens angles. Show as much or as little of your environment.

Of course you’ll have a Lume Cube Led light,  suction cupped to your laptop for added illumination.
