I recently started ripping and encoding my movie collection and storing the files on a Plex server. It's taken me forever just to get it to this point. DVDs tend to take 45 min to rip and encode. Blu-Rays take two hours. It's worth it though. The nice thing about all of this is that I can take my movie collection with me when we travel. Benjamin can watch whatever he wants from the backseat of the car on long road trips.

I love reviewing audio-related products and every once in a while I'll run across something very special. That happened yesterday with the arrival of Tin Audio's T2 in-ear monitor (IEM). The $29.99 T2 features MMCX connectors, 1.2M 5N oxygen free copper silver-plated cables, a dual driver system that's comprised of a 10mm woofer and a 6mm tweeter in each ear bud, and the whole thing rests inside solid steel housings.

Yes, you read that correctly, MMXC connectors, steel housings, silver-braided cables, and dual drivers for $29.99! The end result is a great looking pair of earbuds that sound far better than they have the right to sound. These are well balanced and don't overemphasize anything in particular. The highs are pleasant, the mid-range is fantastically detailed, and the T2s can dip down into the sub 30Mhz level when it comes to bass. We're talking about something that sounds like it cost four times as much. These very well might be the best IEMs available for under $200.

Any downsides? Sure. You only get three pairs of silicone ear tips and one pair of foam ear tips. Oh, and Availability. Tin Audio is just moving into the North American market and not many vendors carry their products. If you're not lucky enough to snag a review unit you can look on eBay. I'm seeing them there for roughly $35.

Bottom line: If you're into audio, and you have a spare $29 burning a hole in your pocket, you can't go wrong with the Tin Audio T2.

I've recently discovered that I suck horribly at taking notes using my computer/iPhone. From now on it's good old-fashioned Pen and paper for me. Anyone have any good roller-ball pen recommendations. Right now I'm torn between the Pilot Metropolitan and the LAMY Model 317.

Nothing like trying to juggle two different laptops (Windows 10/macOS) for work. Crossing my fingers and praying for IT to approve Citrix VDI for macOS. +Citrix
