One last post...

After 14 years of fun, is shutting down by the end of July 2023.

It was facinating to follow the technological evolution of all the gadgets, the IP cameras, dashcams , smartphones, computers, smart watches, ... but it's time to move on.

I'm not renewing the domain and will no longer write articles for the following reasons: 

  • My interest has faded out over the years and I could no longer be bothered in dedicating time writing detailed reviews on any gadget. 

  • The regular offers for product review slowly turned this site into a shop display while the goal was initially to gather useful technical information. (It was cool to receive so many freebies though!)

The content will remain available for an undetermined time through the original blogger web site,, like a frozen time capsule.
The physical files shared on GDrive will progressively be removed, including the old IP camera firmware files (Surprisingly I still get regular requests for them).

...but I'll keep playing!

You dont stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing!

Bad timing! I just bought a 'classic' LED desk lamp that clamps on the table and requires its own power adapter, and Banggood sent me this space-saving light bars that just sits on the edge of the monitor like a webcam and plugs to any nearby USB power source. Neat stuff!

The BlitzWolf® BW-S25 75W 6 Ports Charging Station is an evolution of the 65W BW-S16.

It's more powerful, comes with more ports and adds the PSS (Great! I'm about to buy a Samsung Galaxy!), SCP (Huawei owners, rejoice!)  and QC3.0 protocols to the list (PD3.0, QC2.0, AFC, FCP). In short it can charge more devices and faster!
