popSLATE 2 and Me

By ltsolet / On / In Gear, IndieGoGo, Stuff, Tech

Ok. So those of you who know me, understand that I’m not just a gadget guy but someone who looks for well made stuff.  I don’t like to buy twice or have to carry around more gadgets that I need to.  I like simple, elegant solutions to my digital problems. Even when I didn’t know I had one.

Enter the popSLATE. The original popSLATE 1 was lacking in my opinion, requiring you to charge with one cable synch and charge with another, battery draining bluetooth connectivity, etc.  Not that it was a pain to use but oh, what a difference a year makes in style, design and added functionality.

The changes are indicative of the responsiveness of the IndieGoGo platform.  Quick and nimble companies making things the way people are asking for them.  Top changes include a slimmer case, charge through capabilities via a single lightening cable, rear touch screen (three buttons) and a new set of applications that can be displayed via the case.

I bought mine just last week and I’m  looking forward to July.  Spring forward already!

Things That I Am Reading Now

Ok. So the saying goes that “Education is never a waste.” In those five words are a mouthful is the potential to change you life and to change it for others. There are so many reasons to continue learning that this post simply cannot put them all into words. Luckily for me, someone else has already done that.

Meet Dr. Adam Grant. He’s one of the good guys. Successful, determined, civic and social minded. And he’s a good writer, humorist, and what appears to be an all around good guy.  Don’t take my word for it.  Look it up.  They guy is the stuff of legend and he’s just getting started.

I’m in the middle of Give and Take and I can hardly put it down.

Before the end of March, I’ll plan on putting some of this wisdom to action as I move on to Originals: How Non-Conformist Move the World.  From what I understand, this book is a powerful testament to what can happen when you share and inspire with your vision.
