I did a thing

It is the end of an era in the Gutty home. I have sold my very faithful HP Z820 beast of a workstation which I have been using as my day to day everything computer for the past 5 years. It had almost everything a power-user could want in a machine.. almost. Weighing in at almost 60 lbs. as mine was configured, and with whopping dimensions of 17.5 x 8.0 x 20.7 in without monitors! The price one used to pay for performance was fourfold 1. Price 2. mass and size 3. energy consumption, and

Smart Business cards from Kard6.com

A few months ago – we did an experiment where we ordered blank NFC cards from Amazon, printed some labels & attached them and then programmed them with some specialized software. It was very cool and reasonably economical… sadly, the solution had a very short lifespan. The ink would smudge quickly, the process itself was cumbersome and the printers & software to print the actual cards can go into the ten’s of thousands of dollars. After our mostly failed experiment, we did some shopping around and found these little beauties! Smart business cards from Kard6.com

Phantom 5? DJI Event – September 8.

Update: This event was for the OSMO 5, but the DJ Mavic Pro 3 has since been released and it IS PRO AND it is $$$$ crazy expensive! Here is a little capture I received a mysterious email from DJI about 40 minutes ago with this photo and a link to “learn more”… sure, sure. The general consensus is that it is not for a Phantom 5 release at all, but rather for OSMO Mobile 5. What do you think? I am putting my money on the Phantom 5 series drones this time and, for

Birthday Steak – $42 Tomahawk

Best. Steak. Ever. Shout out to Kolb’s Fine Meats and Sausage in Olds, AB for this fine piece of beef! Also thanks to Backcountry Recreation in Red Deer and Alberta based Louisiana Grills for providing me the hardware to make this happen. Salt and pepper the Tomahawk at room temperature. Rest on counter while the grill is getting up to temperature and then settling to 230 F. Add fresh Rosemary and a little olive oil to the top. Prepare the meat probe as this is going to be a low and slow cook and then

Yes, read the book!

The page above is a capture of my “Your Special Year” calendar on my iPad Pro. It reminded me to pick this book up for the second time today for a little review! Here is a photo of my copy. It is still in pretty good condition considering how many times I pick it up in a week. I am reading it for the 6th time in almost 4 years, plus I listened to the audio book a few times… and while I am not YET rich in money, there are some serious pearls of

M1 MacBook Pro 13″ & all the goodies!

With just one week before WWDC 2021 (June 07) and with all of the rumours swirling surrounding the imminent release of the new 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro’s, I decided to pull the trigger and buy an M1 MacBook Pro. I had this fat Apple store credit from an old 2013 Mac Pro that I had traded in that was burning a hole in my pocket… and I just had a feeling that ALL of the predictions were false. Fast forward to today – July 25, and the rumours have started again, but I am

iPad Pro Gen 4 – LiDAR

I finally had a chance to try the greatest feature of the new Gen 4 iPad Pro machines, and I am not left disappointed. I took about 5 minutes to scan 2 rooms, the entry and a staircase using the RoomScanLiDAR app and these are the results. I did not spend a lot of time trying to get details behind or under the furniture, or into corners, etc. as it was meant to be just this… a 5 minute test. The potential is amazing – I have been working with 3D data for years and

After a 9 Week wait! iPad Pro 12.9″ Gen 4 with LiDAR

OK, this thing has seriously taken a long time to get to me, but now that it is in my hot little hands… I am so excited! Stay tuned to learn more about how this iPad Pro will be integral to the success of my new business. Updates to follow once I get a little hands on time in the field, so thanks for having a peek and I promise I will add more to this in the coming days. Coming up: Testing the LiDAR with measurement apps, 3D and 360° software suites, utilizing this
