I bought a GoPro Hero3 about 2 months ago just to film the kids while they were out “trick or treating” in the rain but found a better use for it after Halloween—in the gym! I used to use my iPhone 4 to get my workouts on video so I can review/perfect my form and track progress but ran into many issues. With the Hero3, all those issues were eliminated AND it’s pretty much life-proof! Check out my iPhone vs. Hero3 comparison footage from the gym.
I recently bought a GoPro Hero3 action camera and, since it doesn’t have a display, I had to buy an external monitor for it so I can frame my shots. While I was looking for a small, portable (and cheap) display on Amazon, I came across a dirt-cheap HD rear view camera that I couldn’t pass up—so I bought it! The monitor was intended for my new GoPro but since it would be sitting around most of the time, I thought I could put it to good use by hooking it up to the rear-view camera and installing them in the car. I just installed both the monitor and the camera today and it’s perfect! I’m a pretty good reverse and parallel parker, but with this new system installed, there’s no more guessing! Here are the links to the products if you’re interested in installing one for yourself. All this for less than $34!
Found these images of the “iPad Mini” on the internet this morning so I thought I’d re-post them. The market is pretty flooded with other mid-size tablets, but this is the first from Apple. I haven’t seen many specs on it but I think we can safely assume it’ll come with “Retina Display,” the new “Lightning” port, iOS 6, and 4G LTE.
What do you think? Are you going to get one? Is it too soon after the new iPad?

For the longest time, I thought my Macbook Pro’s power “brick” was unnecessarily big and useless. Unlike other power cables, this “brick” is so big, it sticks out of the electrical outlet about 4 inches if you don’t use its extension. That’s far enough for any unsuspecting passerby to potentially kick it out of the socket and break the brick. This brick really seemed useless—until I came across a blog on Cult of Mac. The blog talked about opening up a bottle with the Macbook Pro or iPad power “brick,” so I gave it a try—success! I love my power brick now! All you have to do is take off the part that plugs into the socket and you have yourself a bottle opener! The post on Cult of Mac doesn’t have a video so I thought I’d make my own. Here it is:

For this project, we used WordPress as the “CMS” of choice and a few widgets to enhance the visitor experience. WordPress is often viewed as just a blogging tool, but it’s actually more powerful than that. It’s definitely great for blogging, but WordPress is also a fully capable “mini” CMS for any small to medium sized business, or campaign. True, there aren’t a lot of options for a basic WordPress website, but more functionality can be added on with a ton of free third-party widgets and plugins. For the inexperienced web content manager, WordPress couldn’t be any more intuitive. Highly recommended!
