If we are being honest, being a parent makes your multi-tasking skill level up instantly. You could be doing simultaneous things at the same time while keeping your attention on the children, I could honestly say that I learned I could be using one hand for various things while holding the baby with the second hand. It gets hectic though while you are driving and having two children, and I tend to avoid using my phone but sometimes I have to use the Map or GPS apps to know where I’m going and it’s pretty dangerous to hold your phone while driving in general. I was considering getting a phone mount that could hold my phone while driving instead of getting it from my side and keeping my eyes off the road.
The mount itself is pretty sturdy and held my phone firmly, it didn’t budge till I pressed a button from the back to release the side. The mount can be rotated and moved from side to side using a ball jointed part which I appreciate because I can switch from horizontal to vertical view.
The mount held on the air vents and it has two gears as shown in the picture to choose from (I. 2mm and II. 1mm) So you could choose how tight it’ll hold the air vents.
My phone doesn’t support wireless charging so I had to use my sister’s iPhone X to test it out, be sure to check if your phone supports wireless charging before ordering the product. The mount has an opening to plug the USB wire, can be used if your car has a USB opening or you can plug it to a power bank. Charging-wise, I could consider it fast enough definitely not slow. My only problem with this product is the wires, I think it looks messy but it might be just me not knowing how to manage it.
Considering my phone doesn’t support wireless charging, I think the mount alone is useful for me. I think it’s a great charger and very useful, sadly I wouldn’t use the “charger” side of it.
We depend on technology in most aspects of our lives, we save our memories in our phones and devices not like old days when we used to go to photo shops with the negative strips to develop the photos not knowing if they actually look good or not. Of course those pictures we store occupy space and sometimes we are forced to erase them to have more space or the device itself can malfunction and delete everything. Keeping those disadvantages in mind, I decided to print out my son’s photos and keep them in a photo album so we can look back to those memories without using our phone and spend time trying to find that certain picture we had in mind.
I use Canon SELPHY printer for that and that’s why I chose it as my product of the month. I love how the photos turned out in more of a physical form and I’ve enjoyed putting them in an album. The printer allows you to print through Wi-fi or plug a USB drive, it needs special glossy sheets obviously and I’ve noticed the ink finishes by 60 sheets. There are sizes you can choose from in the printer itself but I went for the classic postcard size to keep them in the appropriate fit album.
If you are looking for a reliable printer to use with your phone at the comfort of your home, I highly recommend this one.
I get asked a lot about my laptop, how does it run the sort of games I usually talk about. As you all know, I don’t play only PC games and I don’t follow the stereotyping of gamer races. I’m ‘Everything Gamer’ basically so I don’t only focus on specs that will run a game with smooth FPS, I also focus if the laptop or desktop can run emulators so I can play older games as well.
My starter laptop was a Toshiba Satellite, don’t remember which one but I bought it with the money I got from working part-time at a company called ODC (Oman Drydock Company). I needed a laptop back then to working on my graduation project as well as gaming and I simply focused on getting an i5 Intel Core which is not exactly a good choice for a gaming laptop but it did run few games as it reached the minimum requirements. I currently have MSI Ghost GS60 and I absolutely love it, it’s a bit expensive but it was worth it.
What do I focus on when I want to buy a gaming laptop …
Has to Intel Core i7 or above. I think this is an obvious choice for any gamer, I mean you do want a laptop that can run a game flawlessly so you would focus first on the performance. Dual-core and always go for 8GB or more if you can.
Graphics. I think this is what most of my friends like to boast about, graphic cards. I would say it’s one of the important features you want to focus on because of course you would want that immersive visuals that makes you deeply invested in the game. Since I’m currently using it, I’ll say GeForce GTX 970M and go for better if you could.
Sound. I focus on the sounds a lot, it completes the whole gaming experience for me. We rely on headsets mostly but I feel we should trust the speakers as well.
I would recommend checking out these gaming laptops.
