Aerb Mini Wireless Keyboard With Touchpad Review: A Keyboard For Kodi and Streaming TV Boxes

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Good: Very simple to setup and start using. You just plug in the dongle to the USB port of your receiving device like a computer or in my case a FireTV. I plugged in the dongle, turned on the keyboard, and it just worked no syncing or setup processes it just worked.
Good: It has a full keyboard which makes it extremely easy to input text for searches and long web address. I like this for Kodi because if you are trying to install add-ons this makes it very easy to input the addresses needed to access those sources.
Good: It has a touchpad and this is vital because the keyboard works as both a keyboard and a mouse. If you are using this like I am with a streaming box (The FireTV in my case) and you want to sideload apps you will need a mouse for many of them to work properly and the Aerb Mini Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad will give you that mouse functionality and get those apps working properly.
Good: The Keyboard comes with a rechargeable battery installed and to charge the battery you just have to plug in the included micro USB cable.
Good: Inside the battery compartment there is a storage space for the USB dongle. So if you need to take the keyboard and the dongle somewhere you have a safe place to store the dongle so it doesn’t get lost in transport.
Bad: The keyboard has to use a USB dongle. This is a problem because it means you can’t use it with some computers or other devices. For instance, the current MacBook no longer has a traditional USB port on it and only has a USB C port. Also if your device only has one USB port then you can’t use the keyboard and another USB peripheral at the same time. This has been a problem for me with the FireTV. I have to swap out a thumb-drive I often use and plug in the keyboard dongle.
I would say this is a cool little keyboard which is more than just a keyboard its also a wireless mouse an in a lot of ways a remote control. If you have a streaming TV box that has a USB port on it then a keyboard like this a big plus. I would definitely recommend the Aerb Mini Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad its simple to setup and use and makes many task much easier. The one downside is that you have to use the dongle. I wish this keyboard was Bluetooth because it would open up the possibility to use it with many other devices and use it in conjunction with other accessories. However, I like it and will continue to use it.

Bikini Contest And Glide Gear Leios 3 Axis Gimbal Review

Monday, August 29th, 2016

To see just the bikini contest click here:

Good: The Glide Gear Leios works incredibly well. The footage is buttery smooth. Compared to what the footage looks like without the gimbal is just night and day.
Good: Setup is super easy and you basically need no technical know-how. Anyone can have this working in less than two minutes. It Really is that simple.
Good: The Leios works with phones of various sizes. I have a Nexus 6P which has a 5.7 inch screen and the Leios handles it like a dream. For larger phones you will need to use the included counter balance weight.
Good: You can use the joy stick buttons on the handle to pan side to side or tilt up and down to stay on your subject.
Bad: The gimbal doesn’t come with a case. It has foam cutouts in the box but it doesn’t have a case you can put it in so you can safely throw it in your backpack.
Bad: This is not really a bad thing as it is something I wish was included. I wish on the bottom of the handle there was tripod mount so you could put it on a tripod and then use the joystick buttons to move the camera. Instead the bottom of the handle is where the power button is located.
If you are a cellphone filmmaker forget all of the other stabilizers and get the Leios. It might be a little more expensive than the non-electronic stabilizers but it’s simply worth it. The speed, efficiency and ease-of-use is far and above that of a traditional handheld stabilizers.

EasyAcc Power Bank Review

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Good: The Power Bank’s main features is that it has an integrated lightening cable so you never have to worry about being without a way to plug in to your phone to the power bank.
Good: The Easy Acc Power Bank also has a USB port so you can charge anything that can be connected via a USB cable.
Good: Because the integrated lightning cable you can also plug in another cable to the power bank and charge two devices at once.
Good: The Power bank has four lights on the side of it so you can always know how much power you have left in your bank. Each light represents 25% of the battery’s capacity.
Good: It’s shorter that other power banks which can make it easier to slip into your pocket or purse.
Good/Bad: The Easy Acc Power Bank is twice as heavy as a typical sized power bank but on the good side even though you double your weight you triple your battery capacity since it has a large LG 6700mAh battery inside.
Bad: Now the only thing I truly had a small gripe about is that when I plugged it in to charge for the first time it seemed to take a really long time to charge. I don’t know if that’s a regular thing or if it just took a long time because it was a first charge.
All in all the Easy Acc Power Bank works great and is small enough to fit in your pocket or purse. I think this is good device for travelers and other people that might not have regular access to power outlets.

A Great Inexpensive Kodi Box: Monba Mini MX Player Review

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

The Monba Mini MX TV Box is a mixed bag of good and bad and so I am going to talk about the good and the bad together and you can decide how good the good is and how bad the bad is.
Good: The box is easy to setup and comes with a remote and a HDMI cable which is a nice touch considering the low cost of the device. I bought an Apple TV for more than three time the amount and it didn’t come with a HDMI cable included.
Bad: Even though the box comes with a remote the remote is useless in a lot of ways. To really get the most out of this streaming box you need a wireless mouse or wireless keyboard mouse combo because you can’t navigate in some of the apps without a mouse.
Good: The Mini MX TV Box come with Kodi media center pre-install with plenty of addons already installed so if you just want Kodi you can hook up this box and have Kodi ready to use. Many of the best addons for TV shows and movies are included as well as adult addons but for the adult addons you need to enable them since they are disabled by default.
Bad: The Kodi installation that comes with the box is TVAddons and that build pretty much sucks now. Its old and outdated and there are so many other builds that offer a better Kodi experience like The Beast build or Gears of War build.
Good and Bad: The box runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop but I’m not sure if its Android TV but they say its Android TV so I’ll take their word for it. Its definitely Android which is a good thing. Because it does run on Android you can side-load apps that are not otherwise available for the device in the Google PlayStore. When I try to install apps that are certified to work on Android TV I get a message saying the app is not compatible with this device.
Bad: There are not many apps available for the box in the Google PlayStore and so you have to side-load apps to get even the most basic apps like Hulu and PBS.
Good: The Monba Mini MX TV Box has two usb ports so you can use both a thumb drive and a wireless mouse/keyboard at the same time and you’re going to need to use both at the same time to side load apps. You can also use the thumb drive to play downloaded movies.
The Monba Mini MX TV Box is a mixed bag but its still a good cheap alternative to the Apple TV, Fire TV or other more expensive streaming boxes. If you are planning on using this box mainly for Kodi and watching downloaded videos then this is a great box. Priced now at $39.99 it cost less than half of a month’s cable bill for most people and with a box like this you can cut the cord and get all of your cable content through Kodi on this box.

Non Photo Tech For Photographers Episode 2 The Hydro Flask Water Bottle Review

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

There are certain things that every photographer should have as a part of their kit that are not photo related and in this episode I’m going to talk about water bottles. It may seem silly to talk about water bottles as a photographer but when you are out in the field shooting it is important to stay hydrated so that you don’t fall out in the heat or become hypothermic in the cold. When you are dehydrated your hands have a tendency to shake and I don’t think I need to explain to you how bad that is for photographers.
Good: The bottle is the perfect size to pour a standard size water bottle into it. You ask why would you want pour one water bottle into another well that brings us to the next good thing about the Hydro Flask.
Good: The Hydro Flask is double insulated which means your cold and hot drinks are going to stay cold and hot longer.
Good: This water bottle is sweat proof. For a water bottle that mean you won’t get all of that condensation all over the bottle. So you don’t have to worry about getting your hands wet while shooting.
Good: the bottle has the perfect size mouth opening so that you can pour drinks in it and fit ice cubes in there and you don’t have to worry about spilling all over yourself when drinking because the opening is too large.
Good: The Hydro Flask 18 ounce water bottle is the perfect size to fit in a side pouch of a backpack it can even fit comfortably in the side pockets of cargo pants. The cap also has a hook on it so that you can attach a carabiner to the bottle and carry it that way.
Good: Hydro Flask double insulated water bottle is the perfect capacity you can empty a standard size water bottle into it along with a drink mix and still have enough room to shake up your drink. One of the problems I had with another water bottle that I own is that I couldn’t pour a whole water bottle into it when using drink mixes because there wasn’t enough room to actually shake up the water and the mix. I don’t have that problem with the Hydro Flask. With a standard size water bottle being 16.9 ounces and the Hydro Flask being 18 ounces I have an extra ounce or so I can fit in drink mixes and ice cubes.
Good: the bottle has a powder coating to it that makes it very grippy. It’s very easy to grab and hold onto without slipping out of your hand. They also offer an insulated sports cap, when used in conjunction with the already grippy texture of the Hydro Flask it makes for excellent one-handed usage.
Good: The bottle comes with a lifetime warranty and I can’t tell you how important that is when it comes to deciding which type of product to buy. It says a lot about how much the company believes in their products.
Bad: the only bad thing that I can find about the Hydro Flask double insulated water bottle is that it is not dishwasher safe. That means whenever you use it and clean it you going to have to do so by hand. Other than that I can’t find anything else wrong with this water bottle and don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t want to buy one.
