Scansnap scanners have been a mainstay of my workflow for years. Rarely does a day pass by that I don’t use one. In January, we brought word of two new scanners, the iX1600 and iX1400.

OWC Thunderbolt Hub Review: Small, Powerful and Well-Connected

Apple’s commitment to minimalism has gone too far. For example, my MacBook Air has just two USB-C ports; it’s nuts, and it means I need to use hubs that add the connectivity I need.

Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair Review: Lets You Stay Productive and Keep in Shape

A few years ago, I purchased an exercise bike with a small desk large enough for a laptop.

The Sit2Go is a desk chair and exercise bike combination that works with your current standing desk; it’s turned out to be an excellent option for staying active even as I sit writing!
