That “Sunday Funday with Tech” was a fun fun night. We were rip-roaring via Facebook Live on Sunday, March 23rd and I don’t know about you guys, but I had a blast talking with everyone. Promised you guys a bunch of links to various products and items that we were talking about during our little PowWow so here we go (below). I’m excited to be GROUNDED for a bit back in Colorado so that we can knock out our Sunday tech session fun every week. We’re also aiming to start launching some live shows throughout the week days for those of you that need to take a breather from your day job and want to tune into something fun.

AS USUAL, MUCH THANKS to Tom, who went through the ENTIRE HOUR AND A HALF of time that we hung out to chat on FB, and not only shortened to make this “abridged” version that you’re seeing, but he put together a list of COMPETITIVELY PRICED links to the products for purchase so that everyone can check out the books, technology, etc that myself and a bunch of you were recommending, in addition to links to podcasts and other things.

HERE WE GO WITH THE LINKS:

BeatsX In-Ear Headphones w/ the Apple W1 Bluetooth Chip – $149.95 (love them and comfortable)

Snapchat Spectacles – $129.99

 

 

 

 

Teleprompter by Caddie Buddy (works with ANY tablet or phone) – $158.95

 

 

 

SCAVENGER LIFE PODCAST (dope podcast about a couple and their life “reselling” on eBay, great “take” on this type of e-commerce)

 

 

 

 

DJI PHANTOM 4 DRONE – $949.00 (One of the hot hot new drones that allows you to take gorgeous 4K shots from above of your neighborhood, rolling meadows, or your ex-fiance’s living room)

Apple Watch Series 2 ~ $300-$400 (depending on configuration, colors, bands, and sizing)

Norelco OneBlade Razer and Trimmer – $34.92 (our favorite OBVI)

UT WIRE SURGE PROTECTOR BOX AND ORGANIZER – $36.77 – KILLER PRICE on the WHITE BOX ONLY (great for keeping your surge protector and cords “gently crammed in”, but has slits on the top for cables to enter another way)

ON-EAR Beats Solo3 Headphones w/ the Apple W1 Bluetooth Chip – ONSALE!!!! – $299.99 (NO JOKE, 40 hours of battery life – MUST HAVES)

MailButler Plugin for Apple Mail by Feingeist – Price varies depending on service level/package (Just try it out for free – I can guarantee you’ll be floored by it. It changed my productivity via Apple Mail TENFOLD. No Joke. Customized elegant signatures, read receipts, scheduled emails, “snoozing emails, you name it – the stuff that Apple should actually be paying attention to and have already!)

 

 

 

 

 

GoPro Karma Grip – $299.99

Lavalier Microphones for GoPros or other cameras – wide price range (Note that if you’re wanting to use ANY sort of action cam you’re most likely going to want an external microphone and that can be on that plugs directly into the camera, OR you can plug the mic into your phone and use an app like JustPressRecord and then sync the audio)

BOOK: The Quarter-Life Breakthrough: Invent Your Own Path, Find Meaningful Work, and Build a Life That Matters by Adam Smiley Poswolsky – ON SALE (Paperback) @ $8.42 on Paperback (It’s NOT a “Midlife Crisis”, it’s a “QUARTER LIFE BREAKTHROUGH baby! Thanks to Tanner Wyer for recommending this one!)

BOOK: Awaken the Giant Within : How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny! Paperback by Tony Robbins – ON SALE (Paperback) @ $7.99 (As a more recent Tony Robbins junkie, I like this book, but good god is it dense. I’ve heard that from his other supporters as well – feel like a bunch of people have noted things like “yeah, I selectively read various chapters of this book”. I’m currently rocking it chronologically, but it hasn’t been “easy” to stick with it and I don’t feel like it’s a great one to read before I go to bed necessarily.)

BOOK: You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero – ON SALE (Paperback) @ $7.75 (I think this title seems to speak for itself. Easy read as a great self-motivational tool.)

BOOK: Linchpin: Are You Indispensable by Seth Godin – ON SALE (Paperback) @ $8.98 (Seth Godin knocks it out of the park with this one, as he always does in my eyes. Funny because I am on his DAILY EMAILERS, and I find that most people love him, but there are the few that are almost “annoyed” with his very short and concise pieces that seem to me to sum up so much in just a few sentences. He’s more than a “master marketer” and I feel like his words apply to things much more “meta” for me. Just my opinion. Sign up for his emailer here: www.sethgodin.com/sg/subscribe.aspx)

BOOKThe Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi – (Paperback) @ $10.39 (This book and Bacigalupi’s other book below are the two best fiction books that I’ve ready in the past few years. Eerily reminiscent of environmental issues that sit undiscussed or get glossed over on the nightly news, this one, as with the one below, is set in a not so far dystopian future on Earth where water is EVERYTHING and the States are essentially at each others’ throats about water rights, the damning of rivers, what prosperity means, but more so what the book means to you – MUST READ)

BOOK: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi – (Paperback) @ $11.03 (This is what got me on the “The Water Knife” above. Same thing. Whereas water rights in the states is the focus, this book tells the tale of artificial intelligence, but addresses proprietary “seed banks” that are creepily similar to GMO’s and other topics that almost frame food and sustenance as “currency”. It’s phenomenal and another MUST READ)

VIRTUAL REALITY: Oculus Rift – Virtual Reality Headset (FINALLY A PRICE DROP – PROB NOT ENOUGH TO MOVE THE NEEDLE THOUGH FOR BASIC CONSUMER!)

VIRTUAL REALITYOculus Rift + Oculus Touch Bundle (SAME AS ABOVE)

VIRTUAL REALITY: HTC VIVE

BATTERY CASE FOR iPHONE 6/7 PLUS: RUNSY iPhone 7 Plus Battery Case, 7500mAh Rechargeable Extended Battery Charging Case for iPhone 7 Plus – ONSALE @ $29.99 (This thing is a BAD MAMMA JAMMA – they said SCREW micro USB, let’s double the iPhone 7 Plus battery life, deliver 7,500 mAh and let the consumer use their LIGHTNING cabes!)

BATTERY CASE FOR iPHONE 6/7: RUNSY iPhone 7 / 6S / 6 Battery Case, 5200mAh Rechargeable Extended Battery Charging Case for iPhone 7 / 6S / 6 (4.7 inch), External Battery Charger Case, Backup Power Bank Case (Black) @ $24.99 (just read the above summary – same thing, different size phone)

AUDIO SOUND PLATE: LG Electronics LAP240 Sound Plate 100W Slim 4.1 Surround Sound Speaker System with Built-In Sub Woofer and Bluetooth – $169.99 (It remains to to be seen how “Sound Plates” will catch on, but I LOVE this specific model that we have sitting on top of our dresser underneath the 43″ LG 4K TV that we have mounted in our bedroom. It’s all-in-one, and how can you argue that it’s not – it’s just a large rectangle. I LOVE my Sonos Playbars and will continue to do so, but they require mountain for most situations, and typically don’t include a subwoofer. Great affordable option if you can live without the Sonos functionality and need more space and more simplicity.)

AUDIO SOUND BAR: Sonos Playbar – $699.99 (This one costs a PRETTY PENNY, but IMO it’s worth every bit of it, more specifically if you have a Sonos ecosystem within your place of work or at home. I love watching TV and being able to stream that audio from the Playbar to the Play:1 in my bedroom as I’m folding laundry in the basement, working in the garage, or taking a shower and want to hear the Arsenal game that’s on TV in the Living Room. Lots of competition coming out in this sphere via Vizio Smartcast, Googlecast, or Bose Soundlink, etc, but hopefully Sonos keeps up their progress, drops their sound plate successfully and integrates with Amazon Echo products and their voice triggers ASAP.)

WELP – THAT’S A WHOLE LOT OF PRODUCTS TO COVER. HOPEFULLY THIS HELPS YOU ALL.
