Do you have a big list of customers and need to email them? Is that how you use it? Looks interesting. I assume it’s different and better than say “mail chimp”.

I am picking up MicroSD sticks

But I don’t know if I should get a A1 or A2. I plan to use it from my MacBook Pro as an “external HD” and store a bunch of stuff. This will replace my existing Samsung 500GB external drive and will be tiny ;)

I started purchasing 2 months ago, not wanting to get bottom of the barrel or "out of stock" or "shipping delays" with products because of the supposed "shortages" and "shipping" issues.

Kinda glad I did.

I redid my whole office pretty much... too numerous to list out everything but lets just say I have a FULL recording studio for audio and video, as well as new office chair, Apple products, and more.

I barely upgrade anything. I tend to just keep using things for 7+ years or make do with what I can find/reuse.

However, everything I have is new now and it feels a bit odd.

Got my eyes on some supplies that I need for my project. Unfortunately, I think I’ll pass as they are more expensive than the rest of the year. :rofl:
This comment didn’t age well @Andy Black .. I went out and purchased an
ipad pro 2021 12 inch :rofl: :rofl:

I needed one for various reasons though.

Hmm… I’ve not used a teleprompter but got this for the hell of it.

Email I received:

Instead of a discount for Black Friday, I'm making Video Teleprompter completely free for 24 hours!

This means you can get the one-time lifetime upgrade for Video Teleprompter for free (instead of $16.99), for today only. This will not be available by this time tomorrow.

How to get the Free Upgrade:​

  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad
  2. Search for "Video Teleprompter"
  3. Download my Video Teleprompter app (with this icon:
    Teleprompter
    )
  4. Once you're signed in to the app, tap the "Upgrade to Pro" option
  5. The "forever" option will be available for $0.00 allowing you to upgrade completely for free.
If you're already reading this on your iOS device, here's the direct link to get the app on the App Store: ‎Video Teleprompter

Important: This is only available today, the price will return to $16.99 tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy the free upgrade! Enjoy using Video Teleprompter!

Looking at the biggest mechanic's toolset I can get that still includes a nice case that organizes everything so I can keep that one in the truck. I also need a multimeter for some typical Kak McGuyverism.

Still need to check out lowes and home depot today. If it is a zoo, I will get back in the truck and leave.

I bought a DAC (basically a better way of routing audio from my PC to my headphones). And a pull-up bar.

I headed to the local Best Buy to see about grabbing an all-in-one computer to act as a POS terminal at our new store, only to find that the best buy reps didn't know squat. I ended up picking up a commercial Toshiba touch screen terminal on Ebay, a BeeLink mini PC, and the other remaining components on Black Friday special from Amazon. My cost was way less than the all-in-one computers and I should end up with a much better product.

I bought wave.video from appsumo but found it pretty buggy. Requested a refund this morning. (Note to self: buy on code on Appsumo and try it out before buying another code and "stacking" them to increase limits.)

I'll check out Lumen5 instead, which I think we've used to create some YouTube video ads for a client. There's a free deal on appsumo:

What kind of bugs did you run into? I've made a few videos so far with no issues. Just wondering if there's anything I should look out for.

I tried to change text on one of the clips and it wouldn’t recognise some of the letters I was typing in.

Sometimes it wouldn’t let me change images/videos. I’d click and it wouldn’t respond.

I couldn’t edit the storyboard/storyline. I don’t know whether I’m supposed to be able to do that.

Maybe it was issues with my browser, but it wasn’t usable for me.

I’m messing with Lumen5 now, which is free for 12 months via an Appsumo deal. It might have less functionality, but all I’m trying to do is convert text to video, create video from stock images/video, and create promo style video.

Did you end up getting this Andy?
I passed on it. It seemed geared towards social media and I’m focused on YouTube. I’ll likely look at it another time.

I just bought lifetime access to Wisecut though from Appsumo, and I signed up to a $10/mth Streamyard deal (via an email from them).

I also got 12 months of Lumen5 for free through Appsumo.

I had bought wave.video via Appsumo but found it buggy so got a refund. I’m gutted as everyone else who bought it doesn’t seem have any issues and all love it.

My new ipad saved me tens of hours of work already. Also bought an apple pencil.

All in all, a happy outcome.
