Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor, Apple HomePod, Do I need a new NAS? Android Business Card Scanner, USB Ports on Planes?
——
00:49 WWDC: HomePod & iMac Pro
We took a lot of notes from WWDC 2017… watch the video to find out which new apple products really stood out for us! (Hint: HomePod, and that $5K iMac Pro!
https://www.apple.com/homepod/
https://www.apple.com/imac-pro/

06:00 Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor
First thought, 8K is 7680 x 4320, that’s 4 4K screens, or 16 1080 screens and on Dell’s UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor we’re talking 280 pixels per inch, which looks gorgeous. Who’s it for, and is it worth the $5K price tag? Watch the video!
http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-ultrasharp-32-8k-monitor-up3218k/apd/210-alez/monitors-monitor-accessories

13:34 Android Business Card Scanners
OfficeLens, CamCard, or Haystack: which Android business card scanner does the best job automatically reading and importing details into your contacts? Watch the video to find out!

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.theHaystackApp.haystack&hl=en

23:23 New Drives or New Drives and A New NAS
Brent’s “got a gen 2 4 bay Drobo connected to an old Mac Mini server that has been faithfully backing up my files for 8 years.” He’s gonna swap out the 5 year old drives before they fail, and asks “Should I put new drives in my old Drobo or should I get a new NAS while I’m at it?” Answer is in the video… and use WD Red HDs!
http://www.drobo.com/storage-products/
https://www.wdc.com/products/internal-storage/wd-red.html

27:40 USB Ports on Planes
Rod emailed ask@tekthing.com, “Most aircraft I travel in these days have USB connections in the seat back for charging/running low power equipment.” Can you trust those USB outlets, or the power outlets on planes? Watch the video!

30:45 Thoughts on Rooting & Roms…
Peter in Vienna writes, “Please, in the future, make sure not to mix up rooting and custom ROMs.” and has a list of great apps you can run on a rooted Android device! Watch the video to learn more!
