Pics from a BlackBerry

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a professional photographer.  In fact, I’m not even an amateur photographer.  I just like to take pictures.  I was looking at some pictures recently that I’ve taken with my BlackBerry and I’ve been really impressed with the quality.  I can remember the cloudy quality of the first pictures I took with my BlackBerry Pearl and it's really come a long way.  All of these pictures are from my BlackBerry Storm 2.

Lighting is a really big deal.  If there is enough light, the phone can take some pretty decent pictures.  Also, I’ve been playing with the focus settings on my phone.  There is an option to set the autofocus to “close up”.  This has been really helpful for taking pictures from my garden.  Enjoy!

Urban Armor Gear iPhone 7 Review

Urban Armor Gear has made a name for itself as being a really protective case without all the bulk. They’re thin and light while still meeting military drop specifications. These are two of their newest offerings for the iPhone 7. UAG was kind enough to send me these cases for review, and in this review we'll see if they live up to the high expectations set by the previous generation. 




Wireless Lapel Mic for Cisco Conference Calls

I was recently asked by one of our VP’s to investigate a way for people who are at a remote location to participate in a presentation at our corporate office.My first thought was video conferencing, but video wasn’t necessary because participants didn’t need to see each other.The only real requirement was to see the presentation slides and hear the presentation audio.Since we have a Cisco Meetingplace server I figured that would be easy.The challenge was the VP wanted the presenter to be heard clearly and not have to speak directly into a phone.He suggested we find a wireless lapel mic.

After looking at the 7937 product data sheet it noted that the phone supports "a third-party lapel microphone kit".  I assumed this was a Polycom product since the Cisco conference phones are made by Polycom.  
I opened a chat session on Cisco’s website.Both a Cisco agent and his supervisor said they didn’t know how the lapel mic worked.They also didn’t know where I could get one.They recommend…

Otterbox Commuter versus Symmetry for iPhone 6

This is a brief comparison video of the Otterbox Commuter Series versus the Otterbox Symmetry Series for the iPhone 6.  I've been a huge fan of Otterbox cases for years because of the protection that they provide for the cost.  Other cases will offer more protection or cost less, but not at the same time.  Additionally, some of the Otterbox cases that they've begun to offer in the past few years offer great protection with little bulk.  I was sold when I watched YouTuber MobileSyrup repeatedly throw his phone down the sidewalk and road with no damage using a relatively thin Otterbox Reflex case.  The other huge plus here is I got my iPhone on launch day and both of these cases were available for purchase that day.  Watch the video below to see which case I think wins out between the two and why.
