If you are not a “Gamer” or someone that does not use intensive based software products, then the computer reflected below is a good replacement at home for that old Windows 7 Computer. If you are someone that needs more power to the punch, then take a look at this computer (click here)… The computer below, at the time of this posting, was showing very good consumer review based ratings.
Purchased the ACEPC AK1 Mini PC back in February; and, as promised, here is a periodic update. I purchased this mini pc to connect to a 32 inch Insignia TV in my garage (my workspace, my cave). So far, so good! I use this PC on a daily basis and usually leave it on all day. At this point, I can recommend using this PC as a desktop computer; providing, you are not running memory intensive software that would tax the cpu and memory. I pretty much use this computer for all that I do (word processing, internet, videos, graphics editing, blogging, etc…) One thing I did, to save internal drive space, is I connected an SSD drive. This Mini PC has an option where you can install a drive (easily) inside the case. Software and files that I use are saved on that drive and use the main drive for pretty much the operating system. After 3 months of hard usage, this mini pc has not given me a minutes problem and with Windows-based PC’s these days, having less than a minutes problem is a miracle.

As you probably can tell, I am a big fan of Amazon. I just noticed that they have a Mother’s Day page set up; and, get this, you can order flowers, chocolates, and gift baskets. You know how us guys are, we wait to the last minute. This solves it all. Sit back, drink your coffee, and order for Mom today.
Sitting at a computer terminal at great lengths of time can have devastating effects on your overall well being. At Amazon, I found a “Butt and Back Saver”, called the “ComfiLife Gel Enhanced Seat Cushion” that I have put on my wish list that has great reviews in helping reduce back pain & sciatica. Currently, there is a 5% coupon savings that you can apply to this purchase…
There is a right way to clean the screens on our flat panel devices (TV’s, Laptops, Computers, Smartphones) and the wrong way. The right way is to use a product that is specifically formulated to safely clean the screen without causing residual damage. This is where a product like “Screen Mom” comes into play. It is safe for delicate screens (contains no alcohol, ammonia or harmful phosphates; plus, it is odorless).
For a limited time, you can get Screen Mom at a $6.00 savings and even if you miss this, Screen Mom is an incredible value – Costs little over 1 penny per spray; Clean your TV or laptop 80 times for less than $1; Contains Over 1,572 Sprays in Each Large 16 Ounce Bottle – Includes Premium Microfiber Cloth… Great reviews on this product.
How many of you have batteries just thrown in a drawer somewhere? My guess, they are all probably in multiple locations and some of them may even be discharged due that you forgot about them. Disorganization when storing batteries will end up costing you money and potentially can cause an unsafe condition.
To help you resolve this dilemma, I want to share with you an inexpensive product, called the Battery Organizer Storage Case by Range Kleen, that will take battery organization to the ultimate level, save you money, and provide a means to check your batteries to determine if they are carrying a charge or not. I personally have owned this particular brand/model case for approximately a year and can tell you this battery organizer will change the way you store those batteries. The Battery Organizer Case by Range Kleen holds up to 82 different size batteries (25 AAA, 39 AA, 4 9v, 8 C, and 6 D batteries); AND, even has a drawer to hold small hearing aid and watch size batteries. The case can be placed in a drawer or can be mounted on the wall. An added bonus is the detachable battery tester that does not require a battery (it is powered by the battery it is testing). I can’t count the number of times I have used that tester.

In the market for a smartphone? Difficult decision to make and can be worse than shopping for a car. As smartphones continue to evolve, I am learning more and more; however, I am finding it is really not much different than shopping for a laptop or desktop computer. In reality, these smartphones are our computers in our pockets and have become an extension of our physical presence.
Like computers, there are specific hardware (and software) components to look for; such as the processor; the RAM (random access memory); the operating system (Android, iOS, etc); the display (LCD or Oled); the camera (single lens, dual lens, megapixels, etc…); and, the big one, the battery life. Typically, I shoot for a good mid-range phone and an example of that is the Motorola (Lenovo) Moto G Plus. Now, there is another “G” model that is out there (that I am looking at) and it is the Motorola (Lenovo) moto g⁵ˢ plus (which is a model that just came out); HOWEVER, for the sake of this blog article, I am focusing on the Moto G Plus to point out a good deal at Amazon.
What Amazon has done is cut a deal with Motorola (Lenovo), for Amazon Prime members, where on the notification screen you will see an Amazon ad here and there; and, from what the reviews are saying, this is not anything to get concerned about and is not intrusive. As a result of this deal, you can get a really nice mid-range phone for less money than the original cost and a whole lot less money than the top-end phones that are out there. If you are not an Amazon Prime Member, you can still buy this phone, straight-out with no ads, and still get a great phone at a very good pricing point.
To cut right to the chase, here is the Motorola G Plus that is at Amazon that I highly recommend and so do nearly 3000 other people. I have done quite a bit of research on this phone, watched the YouTube reviews, and am convinced the Motorola phone is going to be my next Smartphone. Yes, you can go with the Samsung or the Apple; but, guess what? Their newer models are fast approaching the $1000 mark. I can buy 4 or 5 of these Motorola’s at that price that will do what they do… If you notice below, the model I spec’d out is the 4GB RAM model with 64GB of storage (plus, can handle a 128GB microSD card). No midrange phone that I know of out there, for this price, can match this. Also, this is an unlocked smartphone and will work on all major carrier networks.

Download media (videos, music, picture,etc) from the internet, save it to your USB drive/memory card/HDD then play it through your HD TV easily with the YKS HDMI Digital Media Player. There are several other brands of these players out there, but this one is the least expensive of the bunch. I purchased one of these and have been very happy with the quality and performance. This player is a 1080P Full-HD Ultra Portable Multi-function Media Player that is capable of playing numerous video and image formats.
