Nomad Charge Key (USB to Lightning)

NomadKey-Lightning-Twist_grande

One item that has become a necessity while traveling and provides the lifeblood to our portable devices is the USB to lightning cable. Without it, our iOS devices become nothing more than fancy paperweights and our productivity grinds to a halt. To solve this issue, I have started carrying a Nomad Charge Key with me on my keychain so I always have a lightning cable with me. The cable itself is very unobtrusive and does not add considerable weight or bulk to my pocket and is flexible enough so that it won’t break easily or poke you in your side. When you need to charge your device in, just plug the charge key into the closest USB port and replenish the battery power. The device is so simple that there really isn’t much else to say about it other than if you need the micro-usb variant, it is also available for your charging pleasure: NomadKey USB 2.0 to Micro USB.

Vintage Post: Mameshiba Catch Review

The Japanese have some interesting cartoon characters in their country and Mameshiba is one of them. So, what is Mameshiba? It is a combination of both a soy bean and a dog. They released a little game for iOS that allows you to catch all the characters in the Mameshiba universe and each has this utterly cute saying. This was one of the more interesting quick reviews I have created just due to the type game and the music and soundeffects that are present.

Enjoy!

Format in ExFAT in Mavericks OS X

I have embedded my annual screencast (this one covers OS X Mavericks) on how to format ExFAT in this post. I hope it helps the people who still need to move files between operating systems. I would highly recommend switching over to using Dropbox or any of the plethora of other file sharing services that are available if possible unless you are restricted by IT policy where you work or for some other reason.

SBX-1 Visit

I was lucky enough (Mahalo Burt) to receive the opportunity to visit the SBX–1 and it was an amazing journey through a rather large and very cool piece of tech. I apologize to all those I promised to get the photos up earlier, so, without any further procrastination, here are the photos I took while visiting the vessel.
