Choosing a camera

I want to start publishing vlogs on a regular basis for the blog, I’d also like to be able to include MotoVlog footage, so time to look for a decent camera that will be capable of producing decent quality to match what I record when I’m not on the Motorbike.

OneNote meets Filofax

Recently, I decided that my method of keeping track of course work for class could just as easily keep track of everything my organiser does. Without wanting to give up my Filofax Metropol Personal Organiser I figure why not combine the two.

Comparing OneNote Modern

Well, Using OneNote desktop is a good experience. So, how does OneNote Modern, stack up? First impressions, it looks good. I’d really like to use it. Using the pen (stylus on Surface Pro 2) is nicer on the desktop though, the cross hairs are a little big compared to the dot which is shown on …
