2016 Favorites: Tools, Gear, & Fun



David, Eric, and I covered a lot of ground in 2016, so we look back on a year that seemed more evolutionary than revolutionary, but with some hints of possible tech revolution to come. Join us as we go over our favorites of the year in tech, gear, tools, and media. It’s not only a look back at cool stuff, but at what we think stood the test of time and use or love today.

Tools

I look at some new software tools for Windows 10, including an oldie-but-goodie I knew about for years but never got around to using. David shares the first seismic event recorded with his new Raspberry Shake, his new Sony lens, and a new tool that makes him look geekier than ever. Eric adopts Windows with vigor and may never return to MacOS. He also follows me down the path of saving mucho bucks when using Comcast internet.

Fun

I continue with Skyrim and talk about my one game I bought during Steam’s winter sale. I also talk about Netflix shows, including The OA, Spectral, and Travelers. Eric picks up Pokemon Go for the Apple Watch (of course), and watches The White Rabbit Project. And find out which game he wants to love, but finally gives up on. Finally, Eric mentions a pair of tabletop games he tried over the holidays which his family enjoyed. Meanwhile, David discovers new video gaming love, builds a Lego K2SO, and will be learning to play the Ukelele, gods help us all.
