Wednesday Wake Tech


New iPhone Rumors! An updated iPhone SE could be in the near near future! The current iPhone SE has specs that is similar to iPhone 6s and this new SE edition could also follow and have the same similar specs to the latest iPhone 7. Only rumors for now but August is just around the corner.

The new 2DS XL is proof that Nintendo is not stopping the innovation of the handhelds! Nintendo says they will not stop and neither should the fans. The lineup of handhelds start from the 2DS, then bigger screen better designed 2DS XL, 3DS, and then the bigger screen 3DS XL. So WAKE UP Nintendo fans! More games, new apps, and better designed gaming is still coming from Nintendo!

WAKE UP Facebook friends! There is a new app that has arrived and it’s only on Android. Phoenix is an app that makes it easier to use Facebook. The one extra feature that many people will be glad to hear is that you can use your messenger inside this app without having to download the separate app. I have been using for about a week now and the app has only taken 9.74 MB of space on my phone. Compare that to the massive 500 MB+ that the native Facebook app takes. Low memory space with messenger included, no reason why you shouldn’t give it a shot! and……sorry IOS guys……

How I Record Basketball Games

If I had a long selfie stick that extended 20 feet high, that would be my choice for recording basketball games from above the players! But I don’t……..

I mount both my camcorder and my GoPro on my 6 foot tripod. The 1080p 60fps camcorder is used to record the whole game from start to finish. I do stop recording when there is no play on the court, so when the viewer is watching the game, they don’t have to see the referee or players gather themselves for the next play. Think of it as skipping the commercials!

The second camera is my GoPro Hero4 that is mounted right next to the camcorder. It has the same view as what the camcorder is seeing and is set at 1080p 60fps as well. The GoPro is on record non-stop from finish to end. If there was a great moment that occurred, I simply just hit the tag button. This tag button is used to easily find the special moments in software so I can easily extract these seconds for highlight moment videos that I like to share on social media.

There it is! Would you like to share your tips for how you record your events?

Tascam for Recommendation?

Tascam DP-008EX

Digital 8-track pocketstudio

Portable recording and editing on the go is something musicians, podcasters, and artists alike want to have in their backpacks…..blah blah blah

I am a podcaster and I want to tell you why I wouldn’t recommend this.

I record everything through Skype and other software/apps coming from my PC. I also do my editing and finalizing from another PC software so editing with this 8 track recorder won’t do me any good. If you need portable recorder with the ability to edit different tracks together then this is for you.

I would choose a portable usb mixer with a couple inputs which costs less over this Tascam. With a usb mixer, PC, and my headphones, I am a one man podcaster that can record and edit everything coming through Skype, apps or even a phone call. Also with a usb mixer, my guests that are connected through the web can hear what I am hearing. I can play an intro, outro, and tracks for all to hear.

Hear my thoughts and discussion on the next #Rotpod.

Mike Bradbury Basketball Camp

The family and I are here in Wise Pies Arena supporting our neice while she is participating  in the Mike Bradbury Basketball Camp.

Teammates supporting each other, referees blowing that whistle, and family yelling at that foul that was not called!

Competition is high even though there will no bracket or places to commend the best. This is a camp that started from the beginning of the June with individual camp basics. The camp is at an end this weekend as they finished off with team camp and team vs team schedules!

So here are some pictures of Hailie and her team!
