Winter 2016/2017 Update

Oh man. I was sick for like three months so I didn't get nearly as much done as I had hoped. I managed to do a write up for AMD's Ryzen 7 announcement, and Nintendo finally revealed more for their crazy new Switch console.

On the video side things got... interesting for me. I happened across a segment of YouTube that opens Pokémon cards and products. I became certifiably addicted to watching them. I ended up buying a bunch of stuff myself and started making videos too.

Microsoft also had the surprise announcement at the end of the year of Windows 10 x86 emulation on ARM. The implications of this are huge, and I talked about it in a video.

Finally, I started using Android phones last year. The experience has been... interesting, for sure. I went ahead and reviewed the Nexus 5X, talking about both my problems with Android and the hardware of the 5X.

Fall 2016 Update

As the year wraps up I manage to crank out some cool stuff.

On the writing side I wrote up a post for the Nintendo Switch announcement. More interestingly, I also recapped Microsoft's 2016 Windows 10 event where they announced the Surface Studio and Creators Update.

My first research article was about HDR technologies and ultimately how HDR televisions and screens have come about and what to look out for when looking to buy one.

Then as far as videos go I also did a video recap of the Windows 10 event.

I finally made a video review for the Band 2. I wish I made this much sooner than I had. I also kinda felt like I was just going through the motions as I was shooting it. But in the end I'm happy with how it turned out.

I also made a desktop computer this year. I bought a case that was highly recommended by many, and was really well reviewed. But I had a lot of issues with the NZXT S340, and ended up getting a different case. The problems I had with it weren't mentioned by anyone from what I saw, so I made a video review so that others could know about these potential problems.

Summer 2016 Update #2

Back again with a collection of things.

First up of course are a pair of articles on Tested about the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This is very likely the biggest Microsoft related release for this year, and I'm glad that I was able to write a little about it for all the consumer devices Windows 10 is on.

Anniversary Update on PC

AU on Xbox and phones

And then here's a video of me testing out the Nexdock. It's... not very good, lol. But I'm still glad I supported the Indiegogo campaign.
