Palomino BlackWing: The Best Pencil That You've Probably Never Heard Of

I am still an analog kind of guy.

While all the tech that surrounds me on a daily basis is nice, when it comes to down to it, nothing beats a good 'ol #2 pencil and a fresh Cahier notebook.

Over this past weekend, I was wandering around downtown Ann Arbor with my nephew and two sons. Our primary goal was to hit the Vault of Midnight, which is a comic book shop, but I also wanted to stop over at Peaceable Kingdom as I heard they were going out of business soon.

My Fold Journal & Trekker Space Pen

My Fold Journal & Trekker Space Pen

I have to admit... I love a good notebook. Still mostly an analog writing kind of guy. Over the past year, I've used Moleskine, Field Notes, Piccadilly and Tul Notebooks, but the pocket notebook is my favorite for jotting down quick notes and tasks. Coming in the standard 3.5" x 5.5" size, most pocket notebooks are pretty much the same, but I just discovered the Fold Journal, and it's now my favorite pocket journal.

$10 Nitecore Tube Review

$10 Nitecore Tube Review

I've been carrying the Nitecore Tube Rechageable LED Flashlight for about three months now.

I've always wanted to try doing video reviews as well, so I decided to try one finally.

Since there's not a really good place in the house to do videos when the family is sleeping, I decided to do videos out in the garage, and it seems to work very well. The lighting is decent and I don't wake anyone up with my ramblings.

I felt a bit nervous doing a video for some reason, but after the third take, it felt about as good as it was going to get, so I just ran with it.

My 30 Day ChromeBook Review

My 30 Day ChromeBook Review

The Google ChromeBook might seem useless to most people, going the way of the netbook (remember those) as a useless ultra-portable computer, but after 30 days of using it, I would beg to differ. Specifically the model I have is an Acer Chromebook 11 (Model# CB3-111) in white. It's 11" screen isn't the lavish retina display that you would get on a Mac air, but at the same time, the Chromebook doesn't cost $1000 either.

Portability

One of the best things about a Chromebook is it's portability. Mac Air users will know exactly what I'm talking about -- the ability to close the lid, slide it into a satchel or courier bag and go is extremely handy and convenient. I love taking it with me when I pick up the kids at school because I have to be there 20 minutes early to get a parking spot. While I'm waiting, I tether to my mobile and I'm up and running in less than a minute.
