Photoshop Tutorial by John Slavio

I bought this book on Amazon to load on my Kindle to read.

I have Photoshop and have used it for years.

I wanted to see what was considered a “beginner” book.

I also wanted to see what the author considered important information for inclusion in the book for folks who have never used Photoshop before.

This book is a very basic book for those who are unfamiliar with the layout in Photoshop and will help them understand how to do basic tasks so they can begin to build on Photoshop mastery. Continue reading

Mini backpack by KAKA

Just right for taking a walk with my dog in the park, I can carry his treats and some of my things. It is well sewn.  Color: Black

I was looking for a way to take my things with me when I walked the dog in the park without having to either stuff it in my pockets and risk it falling out or getting stuck using my large purse and having to drag that around with me with only one hand left to try to hang on to the dog’s leash.

This mini backpack is just perfect for what I needed and I can adjust it so if the dog has lots of energy like at the beginning of the walk, I can wear it across the body so it stays put.

After my dog has run some of his energy out, I can move the mini backpack so it is over one shoulder.

There is plenty of room in this mini backpack for my keys, wallet, phone, book, chapstick, dog treats, comb, and headscarf.

It’s not quite big enough for a water bottle, and the front pocket could have held a little more if there weren’t tucks in the fabric on either side of the bottom, but the backpack is very well sewn and the zippers slide easily.

The reason I chose this brand is because I purchased another backpack from them and was very happy with the quality.

I have purchased other backpacks and they were made out of thin mesh material that fell apart when I tried to clean them, but the backpack I bought from this company held up very well and I can clean them, too.

Amazon Echo Show case – very good quality

Show Case with Premium PU Leather Carrying Case, Bonus Screen Protector, Portable Handle, Sleeve Skins, Anti-Skid Protection, 360 Degree Protect, Super Light Weight Accessory (Pink)

This case is very well made with good materials.

There is a convenient handle on top to grab and go that is made with webbing and has a non-slip grip handle that is easy on my hands.

The stitching is even with no loose threads and all the edges of the PU leather are sealed for durability.

I love the pretty pink color with the accenting black mesh.

It is easy to open and close with the velcro on the lower back. Continue reading

S-JIANG Tactical LED Flashlight

This is a must for everyone’s emergency preparedness kit. It is well made, 2 power sources and bright.

This is a very strong, sturdy, BRIGHT tactical flashlight. With all the storms and flooding in Texas, I figured we better get our self-reliance situation taken care of so this flashlight is now in our emergency preparedness kit.

It comes in a green water resistant case with a snap down lid for easy access and a cord for easy access to grab and go.

The flashlight has two power sources – the larger rechargeable battery that comes with it and it also takes 3 triple A batteries, that I have in it now. Continue reading

Bluetooth Headphones, OldShark Stereo Wireless for sports

Comfortable secure fit, excellent sound – a great value for the money.

These are exceptional headphones with quality sound and comfortable fit. They are unique in that you can turn them on and off by touching them together – so convenient. The storage case they come in is well designed and fits in my pocket without taking up too much room. I love the pockets inside the case so when I open it the headphones just don’t fall out, they are secured and easily accessible.

I will say this – if you try them out and don’t like the fit or think the sound just isn’t precise enough…change the tips for a smaller size. That happened to me. I simply tried them out with the tips that came with them on it and was sad because they wouldn’t stay in and the sound seemed mediocre. After double checking the box, I found the little zip lock package with the extra tips in them and quickly changed them out so the smallest size was on the headphones. WOW! What a difference. The smaller tips allowed the headphones to go further into my ear and the sound became high quality with great bass and clear treble. I can actually shake my head and the headphones stay in. I love them! Continue reading

OldShark V7 Bluetooth Headphones

Great value for the money, these headphones are uber comfortable and have amazing sound quality.

These are super comfortable headphones with phenomenal sound. I am sitting here jamming out to “Sunshine in my Pocket” music and the bass
is great, the treble is clear and the beat just keeping me going. It

It was so easy to bluetooth these headphones, I just slid the power button to the right and waited until it flashed red and blue, then I went to my iPhone 6 plus to the bluetooth setting and the headphones
immediately bluetoothed. I am very happy with these awesome headphones and am working better with music that I can actually hear properly. Continue reading

Excellent backpack for school or travel by KAKA

This backpack is very well made from durable material and the stitching is excellent. There are no loose threads anywhere. There are a variety of pockets of various sizes.

This backpack is one of my favorites because of the security pocket for my wallet and plane tickets are easily accessible to me, but not to anyone else. The pocket is right over my lower back on the inside of the backpack so I just slide my hand between my back and the backpack, grab the pull tab on the zipper and easily open the pouch to get my ID and airline tickets.  

The straps are all padded and very comfortable. There is a lot of room inside the backpack with diverse pockets and spaces for everything I need to fit.   Continue reading

Ibagbar back pack review

This ibagbar backpack is perfect for my needs. The best part, for me, is the waterproof bottom so when it set it down, it doesn’t absorb liquid or allow dirt to stick to it and can be wiped off quickly with a wet wipe.

The straps are very comfortable and well made.

The zippers have tabs that are easy to grab to open the backpack and get my airline tickets quickly at check out.

The backpack is a good size to hold my laptop and a perfect size for sliding under my seat on the plane.

The color gray goes with everything and looks good in a business environment as well as travel use. Continue reading

KAKA anti-theft backpack

This is a good anti-theft backpack with the embedded zipper in the
front pocket and zipper placed under the flap on the stop. This
backpack is great for carrying my laptop and looks business like with
its minimalistic design.

The material it is made of will hold up well to constant use and the
color hides the dirt.

The inner lining is a pretty teal color and is much better than the
traditional black lining that makes everything disappear into a black
hole. This color will help me find what I need quicker.

The handle on top is comfortable and easy to grab when I am in a hurry.
The straps are padded and intelligently designed with a black mesh
backing for comfort.

There are three panels of padding on the back of the backpack to
provide protection for my laptop.

The only negative comment I have is that since the backpack was made
to make it harder for thieves to steal things from it, the enclosed
zipper is a bit of a struggle to pry it out of the enclosed flap and
dig the zipper out of the channel. That’s the trade off you get when
you try to make it harder for others to get into your backpack, it
also makes it harder for you, and takes longer to access what is in
the backpack. Continue reading

Tocode Sports Waterproof Camera & accessories

I am really thrilled with my new TOCODE sports camera. As I unboxed it and realized just how many accessories came with it, I got more and more excited.

Everything was packed carefully and in their own individual zip lock bags. The case it came in was a high quality very well made case with Styrofoam cut own protection inside the case for everything to fit into place.

The camera has four modes – video, photo, time lapse and burst photo mode. In burst photo mode the camera takes 3 photos in 1.5 seconds.

To charge the battery on the camera I used the included USB charger and cable and plugged it into the power strip on the back of my work table. I did notice that the camera got very hot to the touch when charging but cooled off fairly quickly when it was unplugged. Continue reading

SMARTOMI Gee True Wireless Earbuds

These earbuds are comfortable, easy to use, lightweight and stay put.

These earbuds are so convenient and comfortable.

When I got them, the first thing I did was put the smallest tip on the earbud so it sat in
my ear properly.

With the loop over the top of the ear, my earbuds stay in the ear easily instead of falling out.

The left earbud is the main one and I can use it while the other one is charging. I love the
carry case they come in so I can keep it handy in my purse.

One of the things I love about this set is that there are no double sets of tangled cords because the earbuds come with a USB split cord for convenience. These earbuds are lightweight so I can wear them for a long time without any problems, The sound is acceptable and phone calls are clear.

The instruction paper that came with it is easy to understand and has
visual aids as well as text. Continue reading

Unitech Ip Dome Security Camera

This security camera is very well made and comes with good instructions in their Quick Guide User Manual.  You can use it with a Mac or PC and all the cables are tagged to indicate their functions so you aren’t trying to figure out where they go.

You can install this security camera yourself, but I recommend getting someone who is qualified to install security cameras.

Inside the box is the camera, the screw kit, a drill template, documentation and a waterproof hardware kit.  This security camera gets its power from our Ethernet cable, it is not wireless.

The benefit of this camera is that it has great night vision up to 98 feet with 24 infrared LEDs.  We needed the night vision capabilities of this camera for our yard and driveway.  The ability to record video and pictures was a must.  This camera is weatherproof, something you really need in humid climates, and we can adjust the motion detection ability of the camera when we need to. Continue reading
