I've talked about a lot of gear on my channel. This is what I am currently using to game and create content on +YouTube and how I use it. +YouTube Creators

Replaced the stock camera strap that came with my Sony A6300 with this really cool one from #PeakDesign (http://amzn.to/2fDGHc4).

What makes it cool is the fact that it is removable (which is great when I mount my camera on the tripod and don't want a strap hanging) and adjustable (which allows me to quickly change the straps length when passing the camera around to other family members). #SlideLite #CameraStrap

Been playing around with #WindowsPowerShell (https://msdn.microsoft.com/powershell). Just scratched the surface so far but my mind is racing with the possibilities.

The ISE (Integrated Scripting Environment) is the best way to play around with it IMHO as you can test individual lines, make edits and rerun commands as needed. Also "-WhatIf" is your friend. Learn it! Love it! Live it!
Microsoft PowerShell is an automation and scripting platform for Windows built on top of the object-oriented power of the .NET Framework.

Cool map that shows the history of space exploration.
This scientific illustration shows every probe, lander and rover that has been launched since 1959.

One of my favorite features available on the Sony A6300 (http://amzn.to/2cBLjj3) is the Illustration effect.

It allows you to snap a compelling illustration of your subject.

For those artistically challenged (as I am) it allows you to unleash your inner Picasso at the click of a button. #Sony #A6300

Replaced my old Foscam IP camera with the +Nest Cam Outdoor (http://amzn.to/2goHz8G). What a difference. "It Just Works!"

Check out www.windytv.com. This is a really cool interactive weather visualization site.

They also have a cool Android app if you are interested: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.windyty.android&hl=en

Picked-up the #Withings #Thermo Smart Temporal Thermometer (http://amzn.to/2dtO1ah) because I love tech. :)

This thing has 16 Infrared sensors and is capable of taking 4,000 measurements in 2 seconds. All without making contact with the skin.

It also automatically uploads your measurement to your free Withings account which you can then access through the Thermo Android/Apple app and add more specific information relating to the measurement like medicine you are taking, symptoms you are having, a picture and or additional comments.

What is really neat about this is that doing so gives you a more precise history of an illness that is accessible wherever you are, like at the Doctor's office. #ConnectedTech #IoT

If you have #AmazonPrime I highly recommend the PBS series Genius by Stephen Hawking (http://amzn.to/2ctMXDU). The first season is available to stream for free to Prime members at the moment.

Each episode features three "ordinary" people who are asked a single primary question (Like "Is Time Travel Possibe?") and then given tools and experiments that lead them through the thought process one must follow to answer the question on their own. #BecauseScience

It's really well produced and forces you to think about big questions and put the world (and your place in it) into perspective. 
Professor Stephen Hawking challenges a selection of volunteers to think like the greatest geniuses in history and solve some of humanity's most enduring questions.

I'm a Computer Engineer based in Cary, North Carolina by way of New York, New York (The city so great they named it twice).

I love cool technology and share interesting products I find on my YouTube channel HDGeekReview.

For fun I enjoy playing computer games (my latest addiction... Overwatch) and making technology bend to my will.

Everything they sell is delicious. It's not cheap, but good food never is. If you want an authentic French bakery experience without having to pay for a flight to France, don't miss La Farm. By far my favorite breakfast joint in the area.
