GoPro Hero 5 Black

I have heard about and seen GoPro action cameras being used for many years now, as well as seen the many other cameras that have sprung up thanks to its popularity. But it had never interested me, as I do not take part in any of these sporting pursuits which really make full use of its capabilities of capturing the Point of View (POV) videos of a person or a pet while they are taking part in an activity. But the many features of the GoPro Hero 5 Black was what piqued my interest, which is why I ended up buying it. Continue reading GoPro Hero 5 Black

Affinity Photo for iPad RAW editing

Since I was unable to access RAW editing with Affinity Photo for iPad through the iCloud drives, I started looking at whether it was possible to use my RAVPOWER Lightning USB Drive with SD card reader and its iPlugmate App to download RAW files from my SD card into Affinity Photo. And it looks like it does work – which means that I can now do photo RAW editing on my iPad Pro. Here is how I did it. Continue reading Affinity Photo for iPad RAW editing

Cooling towels

Recently while walking around TK-Maxx looking at the various sports paraphernalia, I came across a few towels which were called cooling towels.

Withings Steel HR Activity Tracker Watch

Now for this year’s birthday, my family wanted to buy me something which would be useful. Initially I thought about the Withings Steel HR but was not completely sure that I would like using it. But my family convinced me that it was worth getting and hence they bought it for me. The aim was for it to track all my activities throughout both day and night, including the number of steps I’ve taken, calories burnt and my heart rate. And the fact it looks more like a watch than an activity tracker, meant I was likely to use it. Continue reading Withings Steel HR Activity Tracker Watch

Box Appetit Lunch Box

Recently, I had started using my Tenba Messenger bag as my work bag. Now one of the things I tend to bring along is a lunch box, as my wife packs my lunch for me each day. But I did not feel that the containers we had were truly leak-proof and hence I set out to look for better alternatives. I popped into TK-Maxx to see what they had available, as they do seem to have a wide range of products available. The one which caught my eye was the Box Appetit Lunch Box – they only had this in pink, but I’m not bothered by the colour, as long as it does its job. Price £9.95 (RRP £19.95).
