My Mercedes-Benz GL450

Charles.D. | August 10, 2021

One day, I was driving around in New Jersey, minding my own business, trying to buy a used Toyota Hylander. I entered into a car dealership that, of course, posted some very deceiving prices online. When I went to take a look at my desired SUV, it did not drive […]

Staples Sales

Charles.D. | July 19, 2021

Staples is in the process of changing up its business a little, and as a result, they are closing a few stores. Fortunately for me, this is the second store within my county that’s closing. Look below. I got a deal on these headphones and still got 15% off of […]

Error on 95

Charles.D. | July 14, 2021

This is the fate of the world when everything goes digital and relies on computers. Maybe if we set up neural networks with self-awareness, these issues can fix themselves and we would not have this kind of problem. Oh, wait! In all seriousness turn the sign off, don’t let this […]

Wrecked Sequoia

Charles.D. | July 14, 2021

  As usual, I was driving minding my business, and came across this disaster. This amount of damage would warrant a right off. I hope this wasn’t a hit and run! If I woke up in the morning, got my kids ready for school, brewed a come of coffee, and […]

Cadillac Escalade Hack

Charles.D. | July 14, 2021

So I’m in Far Rockaway, Queens minding my business and I happened to stumble upon this mix-match of a Cadillac Escalade. I’m pretty sure this is not how it came from the factory. Props to anyone looking to spice up their old ride. I’m curious as to how much effort […]

Dogecoin

Charles.D. | April 23, 2021

Cryptocurrency is something that is a bit of a challenge to explain. It is often compared to stocks, but the reality is it’s a digital or virtual currency, unlike fiat currency or the money in the bank. It utilizes decentralized networks based on blockchain technology and is not issued by […]

I’m switching to Signal

Charles.D. | January 13, 2021

I only use WhatsApp because everyone else does, but I’m pleading with everyone to make the switch to Signal. Take some time and read their Privacy Policy, it’s a bit disconcerting. Privacy Policy – Feb 2021 (whatsapp.com)

AirPods Max

Charles.D. | December 11, 2020

How does Apple do it? This thing is about to blow up. It doesn’t matter how much it costs ($549.00), people are going to buy them in droves. I’m going to test them out before I cast judgment; I admit I’m not an Apple fanboy, but they do have a […]

Apple’s M1

Charles.D. | November 11, 2020

Ok, so I’m not a Mac fanboy but this is big news. This is going to change everything at Apple and for the world. It’s going to be interesting to see how application developers are going market and sell their apps on Apple’s line of Mac computers now that the […]

Saramonic Shotgun Microphone

Charles.D. | November 5, 2020

This has improved the quality of my recordings dramatically. If you record on a DSLR, especially an older one like I have, do yourself a favor and upgrade your sound. No external power is required. Plug-in via a mini-jack, and you’re all set. It’s a shotgun microphone with a shock […]

Should you use Craigslist

Charles.D. | November 5, 2020

This site is becoming a mess. Craigslist should not allow a poster to put up the same ad 32 times. What is the point? Having the same ad posted over and over only dilutes the variety of the content. This use to be my go-to for quick, easy buys, but […]

Nest Audio vs Google Home

Charles.D. | October 5, 2020

If you are a tech enthusiast like me and like the idea of having an assistant to communicate with separate from your cell phone, you either bought a Google Home or an Amazon Echo. Though Amazon brought some fun and innovative functionality to the table, Google has the backing of […]
