Tech Hardware:

MacBook Pro – I do not have the newest model, but I love my Mac. I bought mine when I was in college to help me learn OSX. It looks great–like any other apple product. I use Virtual Box to run Windows 7 Ultimate in a virtual machine.

iPhone – I have the 5th generation. This is my very first smart phone; such a nice step up from an iPod Touch. I like iOS and then somethings drive me nuts. It is more secure than Android, but that is because Google allows Android to be more open to allow developers to be flexible.

Poetic Atmosphere Case for Apple iPhone 5 / 5S – Slim iPhone case that looks great. Does not offer a lot of drop protection, but it keeps your phone from getting scratched up.

LG Google TV – Smart TV that runs Android software. Apps can be downloaded from the Google Play store.

Software and apps:

Hygiene:

Murker Safety Razor – Uses a thin single blade. Does a great job and cuts close without causing razor burn. This razor will save you money since the blades are so inexpensive. I used to use Gillette Fusion Proglide razor blades, but the price per blade is about 8-10 times the amount I pay using a safety razor.

Pure Nautica Discovery Cologne – Nice light scent. My wife loves it–that is what matters!
