Not only is The Sizzle the easiest way to keep up with the important tech news without sitting in my own RSS feeds all day, it's literally...

Yes, assuming you’re comfortable touch-typing. Microsoft one is probably better, $65-70 or so, but a working keyboard is better than an...

@amazonaddict: 14" MBP was $329 for 3 years or $119/yr - still a saving, but <10%.

Insulin pumps cost $8000-odd and have a 4-year warranty. 4 years of health insurance hospital + extras costs less and you get cheaper...

I strongly doubt that any laptop manufacturers have catered for this niche - none that I could find, anyhow. The USB PD standard is *very*...

I don't think any laptops would output 20A @ 5v.
24/01/2022 - 17:43
That's correct. The monitor needs 240VAC (via IEC cable) but can charge a connected device. You cannot power the monitor via a PC - even if...

Short version: worse calibration and warranty. P2721Q could be an option if U2720Q is out of stock or out of budget - I spent some time...

My estimated delivery when I purchased around Boxing Day was somewhere from late Jan to early Feb, it arrived after a week. I think they're...
24/01/2022 - 12:29
Yep, although I can't recall where. Googling something along the lines of *Dell M1 LCD Conditioning* should bring it up. Other than the...

It comes with one! If you want a longer one, you'll want to make sure it supports 4K @ 60 + power delivery + data transfer.
24/01/2022 - 12:22
Yep, looks great. Although often I find myself either zooming in or squinting.
24/01/2022 - 12:21
Depends on your OS and resolution. It shouldn’t be blurry if it isn’t scaled - so either full 4K 3840x2160 or FHD 1920x1080 rather than...

Yep. I got one, it can charge a 13" M1 MBP or a 14" M1 Pro MBP just fine. Worth noting that there are some documented flickering issues...

27" at 4K is plenty of screen real estate with a laptop screen to supplement it. I usually have 2-3 application windows on there with some...

Bargain monitors, best sound in the price range even in an untreated room. Got two a few weeks ago for only $10 more each after some eBay...

I've been casually mixing for about 15 years and learnt a bunch of lessons the hard way along the way, all of which is to say that what...

I have an old/discontinued Xiaomi Mi Robot - hard to find [this old model](https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/254606861082) at this price now, but...

1:39pm AEDT: “unfortunately, this code no longer works”.
21/11/2021 - 13:40
Entirely fair. I got a Tuya E14 (Laser), looked into HomeBridge/HA ways to manage it, and decided to just leave it on a colourful scene and...

Google Nest Mini will be able to set them up with [Seamless...

It's not Tuya, and it uses Thread if you have a border router. Only uses BT if you don't have one. Those bulbs look pretty nifty for WiFi...

I had a more detailed reply typed up and accidentally closed the browser window, but basically: * Thread uses the same parts of the 2.4GHz...
15/11/2021 - 22:15
Not really. The Thread stuff is great and more and more devices are becoming Thread border routers - Eero routers are available now, Google...

This is something that I spent a few weeks researching before settling on the Nanoleaf stuff myself. Context: I have a bunch of Apple...

Good enough for me to check if there were any more deals and post this as my first when I saw there weren't!

You can also share scenes through the Nanoleaf app, which means you can have a colour-changing scene spread across several devices. The...
