New Year. New Direction.

Share this:

I know it seems cliche, but with a new year comes a new direction for Zak Tech Reviews. The last time I did a review for this blog was back on September 6th, 2016. This change to Zak Tech Reviews is needed and is the next step.

When I started this blog it was to see where it would go and explore my writing and creative abilities. Over the course of 2016 I found it more and more difficult to explain and blog about tech, in written form. I’m such a visual person…always have been. I can sit down with a book and read, but to write a one page review on something…that’s difficult. Then I did some video reviews for Cesium, the company I work for. It was a simple setup with a mini tripod, bright lighting from a lamp and my notes on the side. The feedback I received was very positive and I quite enjoyed doing it. I found it easier to convey my thoughts and the review process in a video.

Behind the scenes of my first video setup.

So what does this mean? This means that Zak Tech Reviews will be posting more video content, if not all video content going forward. I’ll be setting up the YouTube page and publishing reviews there. The videos will also be posted to this page. The Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts will continue to promote Zak Tech Reviews, but ultimately direct all traffic to YouTube and or this domain.

I want to thank you all for your continued support as I take this journey. I’m looking forward to creating video content and seeing where it goes and how it evolves.




Here are a few of the videos I’ve done so far…


Pokémon GO & MiPow – a perfect pair!

Share this:

“Gotta catch ‘em all!” That’s Pokemon Go’s tagline for their new addictive and interactive game that is available for Android and iOS. This past summer we’ve seen a surge of all sorts of people playing the game. The game uses augmented reality, which is a way of overlaying digital information on top of real world surroundings. You see the full picture by looking through the camera on your smart phone. As well, the game uses your phone’s GPS to tag your surrounding and gets you to move around in the real world. This results in a lot of physical movement, interaction with other players and crowds of people gathered at local park and hot-spots (seriously, go search on YouTube)

If you’re like me, or most people, you probably own a laptop, a tablet, a smartphone and probably a couple other gadgets that constantly need to be plugged in and powered. Yes, these devices probably make your lifestyle easier (or in some cases crazier!) but have you ever considered the “mess” that’s left behind with all those cords that you need to run? That’s where BlueLounge can help you.
