Review: Meago Car Charger Adapter

People who know me well know that they’ll probably find me doing 1 of 2 things at any given time: driving or checking my phone. With the amount of things I do with my life (work and volunteering with 3 different community organizations), it means that I more often than not find myself in my car with a nearly dead phone. If I’m driving long distance, I usually have to choose between my GPS and having a full battery when I get to my destination (mind you, this is when I know I’ll be driving for more than an hour. Ain’t nobody trying to be using that much data). I’ve had car chargers before and even purchased an adapter a couple years ago that had the option to plug in two car adapters at the same time, but it wasn’t great and because of where my cup holder was, every time I went to take a sip of my drink, something would end up coming loose and that’s just not something you need to worry about while driving.

The Best Free Photo-Editing & Graphic Design Apps

I love Photoshop. I’ve been using it for over 10 years now and obviously Adobe is doing something right over there because it’s now almost 30 years since the first version of Photoshop was made available. What I don’t like about Photoshop is the price. When Adobe was still selling the physical version of Photoshop (by physical I mean the actual CDs) it could run you anywhere from $700-$1500 if not more. Now that they’ve moved everything into the Creative Cloud, you’re looking at $10-80 a month for an individual license. There is only one version of Photoshop you can (legally) get for free, as long as you don’t mind you’re using software that’s now 10+ years old. Unfortunately, if you have an iMac or MacBook that’s 2015 or newer, you’re completely SOL. Apple stopped using the hardware that supports older software like CS2. Yay, structured obsolescence.
