KM19 Bluetooth FM Transmitter Video Review

It finally happened. The cassette player in my minivan died. Unable to function without listening to my favorite 80s music, I just had to find a new way to pump my precious tunes through the speaker system.

After copious amounts of online research, I finally decided to try out the KM19 Bluetooth FM Transmitter by Nulaxy. I have to say, this $19 device really delivers. It has all kinds of fancy features but most importantly, it allows me to play the music from my cell phone, to the vehicles audio system. It’s simple, reliable and I couldn’t be happier.

You can take a look at my video review if you’d like a few more details of how it works.

Dave’s 5 Crappy Photo Tips

img_1620

As promised on Episode 53, here are my 5 crappy photo tips:

  1. Don’t put your finger over the lens.
    • While this may seem like an obvious tip, you’d be surprised how often this happens. I have photos to prove it.
  2. Make sure your subject is in focus.
    • Unless you’re going for an “artsy fartsy” look, use the focus button setting thing.
  3. Keep your camera dry.
    • Since most cameras these days are electronic, they won’t work if they get wet.
    • Pro Tip (ding) use a waterproof camera if you’ll be taking underwater photos.
  4. Don’t take photos while jumping on a trampoline.
    • For whatever reason, most photos turn out blurry if you move around a lot.
    • If available, use something stable to set your camera on. See Fixed Annuities.
  5. Don’t take photos in front of the sun.
    • I didn’t letter in maths, but even I know you should have more light in front of your subject than behind.
    • If you you’re taking pictures of behinds, then ignore the above tip.

I hope you have enjoyed reading these crappy tips as much as I have writing them. If for some reason you still have questions on taking better photos, let us know!

Google PhotoScan

Today, Google announced a new software product designed to make flatbed scanners a thing of the past. It’s name is PhotoScan.

PhotoScan works in much the same way as other app scanners do, but with a slight twist. Instead of taking a single photo and straightening it, PhotoScan combines a series of shots and stitches them together. This results in a high resolution scan that is free of glare and other image artifacts.

You can download PhotoScan from the Apple App Store, or from the Google Play Store. To learn more about PhotoScan, visit Google’s product page.
