Rode Podcaster Microphone - USB Mic

Peeps Involved: 
Product tags: 

I got this to get a high quality voice over for all the screencasts I do. It is really quite nice. I kind of wanted to get a "real" microphone, but would then need to get a mixer to power it and some other equipment. This was "plug and play" simple.

I wish I had a case for it - otherwise, it's perfect. Probably 10 minutes at a fabric store getting some neoprene and then sewing it would provide all the more "case" that I need.

Bike to Work Month (at least for me)

"Officially" bike to work month is in May. That seems like a reasonable time: the weather is pretty warm and it's early enough in the year that any converts will likely keep biking throughout the summer. I'm taking a slightly more hardcore approach. My bike to work month is February. If I can bike to work most days in February I think the rest of the year will be easy!

Logitech VX Nano - Perfect Smal Mouse (Mac Support Too)

I got this mouse after my aging wired mouse started making weird clicking noises and I grew tired of cleaning out the ball of my trackball. Phew.

Review of the Logitech Nano mouse

So far I love everything about it. It has a lot of buttons which suits me perfectly: the more buttons the less I have to use modifier keys or point at a specific part of the screen to get the "back" button.

The USB receiver is so absolutely teeny tiny that it is easy to forget you even have it plugged in (aside from the fact that it takes up a spot in the USB receiver). Glorious.
