Yeah that’s me looking at Reddit lol. I’m day 3 on the 8/128 surface go and so far have used it mainly as a laptop vs a tablet. I’m looking to see if this can replace my MacBook 12inch and 9.7 inch iPad Pro.
So far it’s been pretty good as a laptop. Sure it was laggy during the first few hours during updates but it’s performed pretty well on all the software I use for work which is Office 365 and Chrome.
Today I’ve finally decided to just use this as a tablet laying on the couch. Chrome runs like garbage in tablet mode. However, Edge runs very well. As well as Safari in the iPad except with much more versatility since the Surface Go runs on a fully functional operating system.
Still wish the Go had better hardware though and i would definitely pay more for 16GB RAM and a better CPU on this form factor. Excited to see what Microsoft will announce in October.

I was always intimidated by 3D printing because in my mind, it sounded complicated, messy and too time consuming. All of my assumptions were WRONG. It was super easy, this took 5 minutes to setup and the printer did all of the work.
Right out of the box you get the 3D Printer, a memory card with the instructions on it along with a CAD file to print a lucky cat, and filament barely enough to create that lucky cat.
The build quality of the unit itself was pretty solid and well constructed. I’s about the size and weight of a blender and takes up about the same amount of space.
Setting up was really easy. However a printed quick start guide would have been nice and I did have to watch a few YouTube videos to make sure I was doing everything correctly.
Setting up the software was also easy. I just downloaded CURA for my Mac, added the MonoPrice printer and boom, I was set to go. Loading the filament didn’t take too much work and I was ready to print! All I had to do was pop in the memory card with the CAD file, preheated the filament and then hit print and it started.
The process of printing a 3D Lucky Cat took about 2.5 hours, which I did a time lapse on. After printing the cat, I was almost out of the the filament it came with so definitely pick some up if you intend to create more than that.
Again, this is my first 3D printer ever and the first time 3D printing anything so I can’t really compare it to anything else. But at the price point that this is at, and how easy it was!

I beat this game in about 33 hours. Really cheesy typical anime and JRPG elements. Not that much character development except maybe for Yuma, Sonia and Kirika. Dialogue got pretty painful and sometimes dragged and I ended up skipping through a lot of the scenes (thankfully you can do that)!
Game play was fun at the beginning but man, battles started to get annoying and it was too easy even when you play in the more experienced modes. Just load your inventory up on ether, turn into the dragon and have everyone healing you and you will plow right through the game. Most challenging part though was when your party splits off for a brief period of time.
Game did have moments of lag and dips in frame rate on the Switch version, which I’m pretty sure the other versions don’t have.
One of the most anticipated titles by Square Enix is now out in North America and the reviews have been very positive!
Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play in a new world brought to life by Square Enix. And now, you can enjoy all of them in the new demo. Step into the shoes and live the stories of each of the eight travelers and freely explore the world of Orsterra. Then, carry your choices and adventure into the main game with save data transfer.
Use each character’s special abilities in and out of battle. Break through enemy defenses by discovering and targeting weaknesses. Store Boost Points with each turn and then spend them at strategic times to strengthen abilities, chain attacks, or provide aid. Choose the path you wish to walk and discover what lies beyond the horizon.
If you’re a fan of strategic turn based combat, JRPGs, and Square Enix games, this would definitely be worth checking out. Octopath Traveler is currently in my backlog of games along with Ys VIII, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Shining Resonance Refrain. Still waiting on Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger, and a Mario RPG Remake to be on the Switch! It is pretty exciting that the Nintendo Switch is getting more and more titles by the day though!
My review of the AIQUI Dashcam!
Overall a decent dashcam that does a good job recording FULL HD 1080 during the day and night, easy to install for a great price. My only issue is a high pitched whirring sound when listening to the audio it records.
My review of the Midea MAE50 compact washer. There are rebadged variants of the same machine by Maier, Magic Chef, Ginatex, Panda, Black and Decker, etc. Pretty much all the same machine!
My review of the Heloideo Power Bank for the iPhone and USB-C devices. This has the lightning cable and USB-C connections built right in which is cool. Only concern is that I don’t see this labeled as MFI certified (made for iPhone) so that might cause some concerns. This however charged my iPhone X without problems, as well as my Samsung Galaxy S8+ I apologize for the crappy quality of the video. I was sick and I don’t have all my camera equipment unpacked from moving!

My first impressions unboxing review of the Apple Watch Series 3. I’ve only used it for a few days so I haven’t fully utilized it yet. Be on the look out for a full review in the future. So far, I think it is a good upgrade from the Series 0 and the performance improvements have been significant. I ran into a few LTE issues in the beginning but they have been resolved.
