In recognition of National Photography Month, today I’m taking a look at the Joby Pro Sling camera strap. The Pro Sling Strap is Joby’s top-of-the-line sling strap and offers more convenience and comfort than the neck straps that typically come with DSLR or compact system cameras.

The right pair of headphones can make an appreciable difference in how much you enjoy your music. Bad headphones can make even the best songs sound like crud.

Whenever I get a new version of OS X or Windows, I create bootable USB flash drives so I have hard copies of the OS installer. Another tool I use a lot is Parted Magic, a Linux-based utility.
