I’ve no idea when, but at some point Alexa has started taking a more global view on things like alarms and reminders.
There is a park in my little town, within about half a mile of my front door, that I had never visited. Just off Church Street, set back behind the houses.
In fact, until 2 years ago, when I saw it mentioned in a councillor’s blog, I didn’t even know it existed.
There aren’t than many pictures from official sources that shows the Oculus Quest 2 with its original strap. One might almost think they are ashamed of it. The Oculus Go came with a fabric strap that was pretty good; it split into two bands that…
But Eufy also do little cameras, quite similar to my Netvue. I read the Amazon reviews, and they seemed decent, so I bought 3 – two pan-tilt and one fixed, to replace my old Netvue cameras. They arrived today, and while better than the Netvue, they aren’t by much. Still buffering, also prone to freezing – both the app and Alexa feed. And when I view it via my Echo Show screen, it always starts with a loud repetitive beat (not feedback), and 50% of the time doesn’t load at all.
At the end of last year, I signed up for a Kickstarter for a hand held instrument called Orba. It is a hand held synth and MIDI controller, but importantly, it was sold as much on its internal capabilities than as a control for external sources.
Yes, I’ve bought an Oculus Quest 2, to add to my VR collection.
Why, when I already have an Oculus Go and an underused Quest?
Now, of course, Integromat can charge what they like. But if there had been an cheaper option to, say, use Premium modules, but otherwise keep the activations/data levels the same, I would have seriously considered it. £2-3 a month, I would have paid. I just think that going from free to £108 a year is a big leap.
Have just received my tracking information for my Orba handheld synth. I’ve been on the Kickstarter since December. Original shipping was going to be April, but that went out of the window, of course. Still, I’m really excited to be finally getting my hands on…
I would love to be able to buy an EV version of my Berlingo car, which is a perfect shape for me. With the right specs, I’d buy one tomorrow. Citroen have toyed with me in the past, by announcing that they would be available…
I had ruled Citroen out of my car search. But now look what has just come along. The Citroen e-C4.
I found that the Fire HD10 won’t fit my existing tablet stand. It is narrower than the smallest setting of the stand’s clamps, and longer than the largest setting.
One of the joyful things about sorting through various stuff was rediscovering my Yi 360 Camera. I’d bought this as an improvement over my original Ricoh Theta, but then didn’t do much with it last year, due to having to keep my leg elevated due to cellulitis. The camera wasn’t lost – I knew where it was, but it had turned into an anticlimax.
The one downside of the higher resolution camera was that it eats batteries.
In order of preference, my three tools are:
Everything is dependent on the integration tools having pathways to and from the things you are trying to integrate, and they are not all equal. So although I may prefer Integromat, I might find myself using Zapier or even IFTTT, because they can get at what I am trying to affect.
