Inexpensive Tech to Consider Purchasing - Episode 141

2017-07-16

This week, Avram Piltch brings us some of the best tech on a budget. First, Avram discusses the treacherous terrain of inexpensive laptops. Usually, battery life is terrible, or screens are low resolution or very dim, or even incredibly heavy. It doesn't have to be this way, as there are some [url=https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/best-cheap-laptop]great deals under $200[/url]. In addition to laptops, Avram discusses one of the most essential computer accessories: the mouse. Inexpensive mice can be awkward to use or even overly basic. [url=https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/cheap-wireless-mice]Some mice, however, are worth considering[/url]. $20 can even get you a wireless mouse from a reputable brand with navigation buttons on the side.

Native Realities: Everything You Love About Being a Nerd, All in One Place

2017-06-10

After conducting this interview, the crew and myself had to add a new word to our vocabulary: Indiginerd; a lover of indigenous nerd and pop culture. Created out of a love for comics, all things pop culture and the belief that there was not a substantial or accurate representation of Native and indigenous people, [url=http://nativerealities.com]Native Realities[/url] was born. Their goal? To entertain, and educate adults and children alike. The company publishes several books, available in print or digitally, from Native creators and starring Native and Indigenous characters with future plans to branch out into games and animated projects. This interview was a breath of fresh air for me. Being an avid comic reader, I was always disheartened with the knowledge that there were only a handful of books that had actual Native characters in them. However, for every one that was written in a real and believable way, there were two that were basically joke characters. It warms my heart to see something like this exist in today's world. In addition to the many things this company has coming down its respective pipeline, they are also gearing up for their second Indigenous Comic Con which will be held on November 10th through 12th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Please check these guys out, and to find out more about this great company, or to just go and let your Indiginerd flag fly, you can find them [url=http://nativerealities.com]here[/url].

Fascinate Your Customers by Introducing them to Awesome VR

2017-06-09

The world of tech is enhancing our lives on a daily basis. Businesses are able to attract customers in new ways, while at the same time making it easier for them to browse through and purchase their products. And now, the design and architecture industries are also able to jump on the tech bandwagon to attract and amaze their clients. [url=http://morfus.io]Morfus[/url] is an enterprise solution VR company for interior designers and architects. They transform 3D models and 2D floor plans into a VR showcase for mobile phones. Bringing this technology to existing phones makes it available to many more firms, as well as their clients, as they will not have to invest in expensive hardware in order to view the designs. Once rendered, they can be viewed on any smart phone. Also, each project generates its own unique mobile app, so the firm's customers can download the apps on their own devices as well. It opens up so many possibilities as clients will be able to virtually walk through the designs. This provides a much better sense of the space available with heights and dimension, the ability to go from room to room, even see the landscaping and views. They bring the plans to life so much more than a model or 360˚ photo. They also make is simple to use. Although they are compatible with Google Cardboard, they also have their own system for moving around the showcase that will work with any Bluetooth controller for Android or iOS. As the company expands, they are looking forward to introducing their own design apps for interior decorating that include allowing users to create their own rooms and incorporating furniture and other home goods stores in the process. So you'll be able to drag and drop actual pieces into the design and purchase the items right from the app. To learn more, check out their [url=http://morfus.io]website[/url] for demos and contact information.
