Sony a6000 mirrorless camera – time lapse app

March 12, 2016

I recently purchased a Sony a6000 mirrorless camera after debating between dslr and mirrorless. Where I travel quite often I wanted a smaller camera but to still have the functionality of a dlsr.

Our vacation took us into Vermont which means we had to see the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory. This is a nice property where you can go through a factory tour ($). During the tour they give you a sample of a small batch they they make for the tour. There is a souvenir […]

Macbook trackpad issues

August 24, 2014

Over the last couple of months I have noticed the trackpad and button on my Macbook have been giving me troubles. The button would press ‘by itself’ and the trackpad was not really responsive. I also noticed the front case had started to crack so I figured it was time to see what was going […]
