What hardware are you using?
I have three desktop computers – a 24” Dell XPS running
Windows 7 Home Premium Windows 8, an 20.5” Dell Inspiron running Windows 7 Ultimate and a 27” iMac running on Mac OS X Lion.
The Dell XPS is my main work machine while the Dell Inspiron is like a test box that I use for trying out various software. The iMac is primarily used for video production though it also doubles as a standing desk.
I do have a Google Chromebook but it is painfully slow and I rarely use it. The other mobile devices I have include the Apple iPad 2, Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle which is always stuffed with long-form web content sent through Readability.
I use Kodak Zi8, Flip Ultra HD and iMac’s built-in iSight HD camera for shooting video while the audio recording is done through Samson C01U and Blue Yeti USB microphones that are fitted with a gooseneck pop filter. I attach a lavalier microphone – Audio Technica ATR-35S – to the Kodak Zi8 video camcorder when I am shooting outdoors.
I have a
Samsung Galaxy S Google Nexus 4 mobile phone that is powered by Android Gingerbread. I also have an iPod Nano and Microsoft Zune though I don’t use them anymore as the mobile phone has apps for everything.
I am currently using the Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 with an Arc Touch Mouse though I also like the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 – it’s extremely comfortable for long typing sessions. I share the same keyboard and mouse between the two Windows desktops and this is possible with the help of Mouse without Borders, a free software.
I also have a LiveScribe pen and the Wacom Graphire4 pen tablet though I don’t use them very frequently. My old but still-going-strong list of gadgets include the HP LaserJet P1008 printer and the Canon Powershot A620 digital camera.
What software and web tools are you using?
I use Microsoft Office 365, Sublime Text 2 (text editor), EverNote (web clippings), Google Chrome (browser), Dropbox (files), Adobe Photoshop (for image editing), SnagIt (for software screenshots), Camtasia Studio (for screencasts) and Apple iMovie for video editing.
For passwords, I have developed my own password manager.
Most of my websites are running on Google Apps and they are powered by either WordPress or Google App Engine.
