    Smart Mailbox

    So I had this idea when I was leaving my house this morning on my way to work. We all love modern technology. We have smart doorbells, smart thermostats, etc. Why not a smart mailbox? It would be pretty easy. Have about an inch of space in the back to hold the electronics. When it gets opened it...

    I'm thinking about a new mouse for my home PC, and was wondering what everyone uses? I currently use a Logitech G502, but was thinking about a new Coarsair mouse. Looking at the M65 RGB Elite, or the Ironclaw. Here is my current: The two I am considering:

    Firewalla Blue - Cybersecurity Firewall Review

    I ran across this little device awhile ago. It is almost like a Pi-hole in some ways, but also does so much more. Just plug it into your network and then you have full control. Also no monthly fees. They do have a new 'blue' version due out in February. https://firewalla.com/

    Office 365

    I know about Office 365 and it's monthly or yearly payments and such. Does anyone use Outlook with this Hotmail account? I'm pretty sure it uses both POP and IMAP. I use Outlook at work and enjoy it and was thinking about using it at home as well. Any experience with it? @ndboarder ?

    Technology changes in my lifetime

    You know your old when you see so many changes to technology over the year and what it has done for business. I have been out of the tech field for awhile and I went and looked at jobs yesterday online and a larger city that is near me. What I found was interesting. There is no longer need for...

    Oakley's Prizm

    So I got a new pair of prescription sunglasses this year and when I was getting everything for it I decided to get their new Prizm technology added to it. The first time I put them on outside it was like seeing a 4k HDR T.V. for the first time. It does something to the colors and makes...

    Veeam Endpoint Backup

    Ran across this program after people were talking about Acronis 2018. It basically looks like it does the same thing as Acronis does, but is free. Source

    Ink cartridges are a scam

    I couldn't agree more with this video. I watched it all the way through. I have been dealing with this personal with my Mom lately and my work printers as well. One of the biggest scams of the 21st century.

    The battle of the VPNs

    So lets talk about VPNs. There are a lot to choose from. I currently have my own, so when I am out traveling with my phone I can surf using my own network at home. Just makes me feel safe (which I am) when using public wi-fi. But there are quite a few that you can pay for online that do the...

    Sharing Articles

    I like to share articles regarding Security and Technology via Facebook. I thought it would be cool to share here with everyone @fluxoid.  Would the admin prefer I create a separate thread for each article or one solid thread where I may input the articles/link to avoid it looking messy? Thanks

    Dropping out of technology

    So I have been officially out of the technology based work field for over a year now. What is different? Well I find myself not being so stressed anymore as far as work goes. I don't deal with people being mad or angry all the time which is great. But one thing I have noticed is my confidence of...

    Looking for new router

    So I still love my Asus, but looking to get into a AC router. Mine is getting older, just a N, but it also seems to be cutting out a lot more and more lately even though I am running back on stock firmware with the latest. It's been good but want to try something new. So I think I want a AC...
