I use stuff. A lot of stuff. That's what being a tech blogger is all about, right? Using technology to talk about technology. Well, David and Cameron have already pulled back the curtain to show you how they make the magic happen. Now it's my turn!

The Hardware

My Desktop

There is no other way to describe my desktop than "my desktop." This is my workhorse and the centerpiece of my digital life. It's been steadily upgraded over the last 15 years and always by my own hand. I've never even owned a pre-built tower. It currently houses an i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and around 2.5TB of storage, between three hard drives. The next step will be an SSD for the system drive, but one thing at a time.

A more recent addition, that I've discovered I simply can't live without, is the Logitech G110 keyboard. While it's primarily designed as a gaming keyboard, the backlit panel makes it beautiful to write no matter what hour it is. Additionally, it comes with twelve easily programmable keys that I can set up with whatever macro I may need. I used to use Autohotkey to create shortcuts for simple, repetitive tasks (and still recommend it for anyone else), but the extra buttons make it dead simple. They can also be programmed on the fly by recording keystrokes, and the whole board can be set into three different modes, each with their own backlit color. It's insanely customizable. I can never go back.

Desktop Apps

I'll skip the boring apps—Chrome, Skype, Spotify, mIRC are my main essentials, though, for those wondering—and skip right to the creative apps: the Adobe Suite. In a former life, I was a video editor by trade. My enthusiasm for the craft lulled after three years at an investigations company editing footage that made bigfoot tapes look steady by comparison. However, during that time I used just about every editor known to man, and I keep coming back to the Adobe suite.

This is why I can't give up my desktop yet.

While there are some other good video editors, I still turn to Premiere Pro as my go to program. Photoshop naturally fills the need for complex image editing, while After Effects, Photoshop's lesser known brother, provides a veritable playground for motion graphics and special effects. There was a time when you absolutely had to have a Mac in order to do serious multimedia work. This is simply not the case anymore. With the recent controversial changes made to Final Cut (which I also used extensively for many years) and the strides that Adobe has made with Premiere, the playing field is quickly becoming level. Unless you end up working within a company that requires you own a Mac, I'd hesitate to plunk down the not-insignificant cash it would take to get a decked-out MBP with FCS on it.

Laptop

laptopmodified

My laptop is a Lenovo IdeaPad. It has a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. It is, in all brevity, a laptop. In a stunning turn of events, I side with David on this one over Cameron. I don't care to use it instead of my desktop. In fact, I actively avoid it. Maybe it's because I've got an emotional attachment to my big box, maybe it's because I love my big clink-clink-clink keyboard over the softer, flatter keys of the lappy, or maybe it's because I've spent so much time tweaking and customizing my main machine that anything else feels like being away from home. Whatever it is, if given the choice, I'll choose the desktop every time.

Unfortunately, I won't always get that choice, and that's why I have a laptop. I've had many occasions over the last year or so that I've had the need to write something while far from home. For me, right now, a laptop is the only way to do it. Tablets are great and, as Cameron has pointed out, they're getting better at being productivity machines. However, I use way too dang many keyboard shortcuts to be fast on a tablet. And I desperately need to be fast. The Lenovo has served me well, and is gorgeous to boot. If you're going to pick up a laptop, you could do much worse.

Tablet(s): Nexus 7

n7modi

This is, by far, the best tablet I've ever owned. Bar none. I still sometimes miss the size of my old Xoom (and that's the only thing I miss, but we'll get to that in a minute), but for reading it's the perfect size and for everything else it's blazing fast. This device has left my side perhaps all of an hour since I first got it. While it's redundant hardware when I'm away from home and I carry it largely because I like it, when I am home, it's my satellite device to all the important stuff I need. With rare exception, there aren't many ways people can communicate with me on my phone or desktop that don't also go to my Nexus 7. It also feels much more like a social device. While there are still improvements to be made on the sharing front, I still feel more comfortable handing off a tablet to a friend to show them something than I do my phone. I imagine that the extra screen real estate helps it feel more like a "Look at this!" device.

Motorola Xoom

xoommodi

Hate. I was really tempted to leave this paragraph at that, but it bears more in-depth analysis. The Xoom was actually a pretty good tablet to start with. The construction is solid, if a little heavy. The size is exactly what I like. It may not be the best for reading books (which I absolutely love on my Nexus 7, by the way), but it's fantastic for comics, web browsing, and apps that are designed for it. Flixster, as an example, was a beacon of what you could do with Android and the Fragments API on a 10" display. Of course, they botched that on the 7" form factor, but still.

The bad, though, is that this device shipped without key features like LTE (which required a hardware upgrade), was running on a Tegra 2 processor that was already pretty dated when it shipped, and became increasingly laggy over time. Perhaps worst of all, though is that the Xoom was the first device to demonstrate the CDMA problem. While technically not a Nexus device, it is still treated as an official Google Experience tablet. Yet, the LTE version was updated to Ice Cream Sandwich a few months after the already-late WiFi Xoom upgrade. In short, while I wanted to love this thing, it's a mess that couldn't have made that goal harder.

Phone(s): Epic 4G Touch

epicmodi

Sure, maybe I hate the name. However, Sprint's Galaxy S II has still managed to work pretty well as my daily driver. My previous phone was the original Evo, so the absolutely gorgeous SAMOLED+ display and dual-core processor felt like a dream. TouchWiz has its issues (again, we'll get to that in a minute), but Samsung makes some pretty good hardware. Even now, a year after this phone's release, I still feel like my device can keep up. It could be better, though. Which leads me to...

Galaxy Nexus

gnexmodi

I've just recently acquired a Galaxy Nexus to be my new primary phone. Without getting into the details of my contract situation, it became necessary for me to renew now and there is only one phone I'd trust to last two more years, despite already being a year old. It's a bit of a risk, especially since it's a CDMA device, but as I've learned from the Nexus 7, stock Android is worth the gamble. I've only had it for a few days, but so far I'm already in love. I think I'll be sticking with Nexus devices from here on out. And TouchWiz? I honestly probably could've handled your annoying messes if you didn't constantly remind me every time I plug something into the headphone jack and turn up the volume that "loud music can damage your ears." Thanks, but I'm just controlling the volume on my car stereo. Or, oh I see. You're going to turn the volume back down every time I unplug, so I have to do the same process all over again every dang time I get in the car.

My Galaxy Nexus treats me like an adult. Thank you, but you're dismissed.

Camera: Nikon L120

l120modi

This picture taken with the Epic 4G Touch (modified in Photoshop). While the phone takes decent pictures, it's not up to snuff compared to the camera itself.

While the camera in my Epic 4G Touch is great (the Galaxy Nexus camera isn't quite as good, but it's serviceable for most things), taking photos for reviews or articles like this one have a bit higher standards. Without breaking the bank, I was able to pick up this little guy who's been more than handy in the short time I've been using it. There aren't quite as many controls as I'd like, and most things like exposure are buried in menus, but for a cheap unit to take better-than-cellphone quality pictures, it works wonderfully.

Apps

I won't spend too much time covering the same ground that my colleagues already have. Suffice to say, I also use Chrome, Gmail, Dropbox, Twitter, and Spotify which Cameron neglected to mention I got him hooked on, but I forgive him because we're buds. There is one that I feel deserves a special second mention.

Google Voice

voice1 voice2 voice3

David touched on this in his article, but I feel the need to expand on it. You see, I'm on Sprint and the option to remove messaging in order to save some money isn't available for smartphone plans. Unlimited messaging comes standard with all unlimited data plans. Yet, I still love Google Voice because I'm able to text from absolutely anywhere. In fact, roughly a third of the time that I'm texting someone am I actually doing it from my phone. Much more often, it's from my desktop or tablet. David is correct that GV could use a little work on both the stability and speed fronts, plus it's in desperate need of a UI overhaul, not the least of which to give it a proper tablet layout, but just adding the ability to send SMS messages from Nexus 7 is boon enough to make the whole thing worth it.

Reddit Is Fun

ris1

I've tried just about every Reddit client out there, yet I keep coming back to this one. Not because it's the prettiest (that would probably go to Bacon Reader), or because it's got the most spiffy extras (Reddit News picture previews are a gem), but because when it comes to pure functionality, it can't be beat. Much like Reddit itself, the interface is very plain but you can do everything with it. I'm able to not only read stories, but respond to comments, keep up with with replies, and engage the full community experience. Other apps might be better for readers who don't engage with the community, but I got my start writing words on the internet as a commenter on Gizmodo back in the glory days before the iPhone 4. In my heart, I'll always love talking with people reading the same stuff on the internet that I am.

QuickPic

quick1 quick2 quick3

I hate the stock Gallery app. With a passion. For some reason when Samsung brought Ice Cream Sandwich to the Epic 4G Touch, they kept the weird-looking Gallery app with the stretched out, blurry images background. However, even on my Nexii, the completely random sorting and the inclusion of every single picture you've ever taken, seemingly each in their own entire folder, is just asinine. I also sometimes want the ability to move related pictures into their own folder. You can't do this in the Gallery. QuickPic, however allows you to hide certain folders, and even move pictures around on the SD card, creating your own folders if you'd like. Yes, it means you'll see a file manager and Google hates that. Maybe even for good reason! File managers are definitely ugly. But I'm a big boy. I can handle it. So, QuickPic is fantastic for my needs.

Unified Remote

uni1 uni2 uni3

This is perhaps one of my favorite pieces of software. As I've mentioned before, my desktop is the centerpiece of my digital life. In addition, my living room's entertainment center is also run by a Windows desktop. I've used several remote control apps for Android and Unified Remote is the best I've tried. In addition to basic keyboard and mouse, there is a cornucopia of other remotes tailored to specific apps and services including Netflix, Hulu (both web and desktop client), Windows Media Player, VLC, Spotify, XBMC, Boxee and a ton more. If you use your computer as a media consumption device, it's hard to do without Unified Remote.

Marvel Comics

2012-09-28 14.45.56  2012-09-28 14.46.17 2012-09-28 14.46.29

Sure, it's not going to help anyone be more productive, but I'm a die-hard Marvel fan. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe really getting underway, I have a renewed interest in reading comics. This app has every feature I'd ever need. Offline storage, a huge selection of both individual and collections of comics, not to mention a delightful panel-by-panel mode for smaller screens that makes it very easy to follow a story. In a word, it's marvelous.

Other Junk

R1 Tablet Stand

n7modi

Seen here, doing it's job!

I use this thing every day. Most of the time, while I'm working, I keep my Nexus 7 just off to the side of my monitor so I can see social network notifications, emails, or other correspondence at a glance. I didn't expect this thing to be as useful as it has ended up being, but between the sturdy aluminum construction, and the versatile positioning, it has quickly become one of my favorite accessories.

EarForce Z6 Headset

z6modi

I went through probably a half dozen microphone and headset combos in my search to find the perfect podcasting utility. This one has served me rather well since I first got it. Nothing too fancy, but I can't do without it anymore.

G13 Gamepad

g13modi

While I'm not a hardcore gamer (I am, at any given time, roughly 5 years behind the gaming cycle), I can spend a ton of time in Azeroth or a galaxy far, far away. The G13 gamepad has become essential for me while playing, but it's also an invaluable tool in other ways. For starters, the LCD display is handy as a performance monitor that saves precious space on my screen. Additionally, this thing has 24 programmable buttons and a four-direction control stick. If you've ever done any video editing, you know how valuable an array of customizable keys can be. It's superfluous for most people, but if you have specialized needs for keyboard-heavy applications, the G13 is a fantastic choice.

Lily The Eternal

Because turtles are awesome. That's why.

That about wraps it up. If you've got any alternatives to what I use here that you'd like to share, or if you'd like detailed specs for my turtle, sound off in the comments below.

      I went desk shopping and found it at Office Depot. In case it's not obvious, I love black and chrome (virtually all of my gadgets match), and this one just semeed perfect. Plus, the (mostly) glass surface is super easy to clean. I definitely recommend it! :)

  • ssj4Gogeta

    There is no other way to describe my desktop than "my desktop." This is my workhorse and the centerpiece of my digital life. It's been steadily upgraded over the last 15 years and always by my own hand.

    Nice to see a PC enthusiast. Many people don't even have a reason to have a desktop anymore because performance/watt has improved to the point where mobile devices are good enough for what most people do with their computers - check email, browse websites, play casual games. But when it comes to serious number crunching or gaming, nothing can beat a tower with an insanely overclocked CPU and a 180-watt GPU (well except for an even more insanely overclocked CPU and a 250-watt monster GPU) :D

    • Jeremy Bryant

      Maybe I'm an old-fashioned geezer, but I can't stand using laptops. I absolutely LOATHE their ergonomics. Touchpads, in particular, irk me; and the keyboards universally suck. And on top of that, you're always looking down at your work, not in front of you, where a display should be. I've owned nothing but PC's since 1990, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. But I digress...

      • ssj4Gogeta

        I don't like touchpads either, especially the smaller ones and I always carry a small wireless mouse with me. I really like touchscreens, on the other hand, except for typing.

        I don't think I could live without my laptop, though. I wish I could carry a desktop with a 21" LCD and a diesel generator in a 4-dimensional backpack but we aren't there yet. :P And not to mention how much I love my smartphone - enough processing power for many jobs with enough energy to last a day, all in a neat little package you can slip into your pocket. But when at home, I always prefer a desktop.

  • andrew zavala

    It struck me as a little odd that you run a Core i3 in your 'workhorse' desktop. Any reason you dont have a heftier processor like an i5 or i7?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      Mainly because at the time I upgraded this thing last, I got some parts from a friend to save money. The old parts were a a dual-core (pre-Core2Duo, it seems) CPU, so I needed to replace the motherboard, but I also had to build a second machine from parts. It got kind of expensive. The i3 was a nice step up at the time from where I was. I focused most of my funds on the graphics card, though. I forget the model of the old one but suffice to say it was a huge step up for me.

      It displeases me a lot that my laptop, which I hate using, has a more powerful processor than my desktop, but at the time the situation just required that I make a compromise. I'd certainly love to beef it up and an i7 is on the list for my next round of upgrades.

    • Freak4Dell

      That's what I was thinking, too, especially considering that the other specs are pretty decent. But hey, if it works, it works.

    Thought I'd throw in a couple of questions.

    1) An you post a detailed spec list of your build?
    2) What do you use for reading books on your Nexus 7?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      1.) I'm guessing you mean for the desktop. Here's what I've got:

      Core i3-2100 (3.1GHz)
      8GB DDR3 RAM
      500GB system drive, 1.5TB and another 500GB secondary drives.
      AMD Radeon HD 6700
      Blu-Ray drive/DVD writer
      650w power supply. I think.

      2.) I really love Play Books for reading. If Google doesn't have what I'm looking for, though, I go with Amazon. If you have to bring your own PDFs or other books, Aldiko is great.

  • http://profiles.google.com/nigelnaughton nigel naughton

    Wondering what camera app you use on your Gnex. I absolutely love that phone (And I have the Nexus 7 as well...sweeeet!) I was using Camera360 but really had problems with it messing with the stock Gallery app, G+ and instant uploads. Do you use it? Use a work around with it successfully? Thanks!

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      I haven't used anything beyond the stock app so far. The app itself is fantastic, but I haven't tried any others. I just got it a couple days ago, so maybe I will!

      • http://profiles.google.com/nigelnaughton nigel naughton

        Thanks for the reply. I agree with you about never going back to a non-stock pure Google experience piece of hardware.

  • Shane

    What computer desk do you have ? I will be moving soon and looking for a new desk. That one looks like it would be perfect !

  • Cenarl

    I think you need to go with a 3 monitor setup...with the type of work you do and the fact you already love your desktop, I think 3 or even dual monitors would change your life. And with plenty of "cheaper" eIPS monitors around now its a decent time to buy

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      I'm very seriously considering that. I have a few upgrades I still want to do. The first on my list is to get an SSD for my system drive (I badly need it), but after that I might do an extra monitor. I used to have a two monitor setup and I loved it.

      • http://twitter.com/homncruse Aaron Burke

        Switching your system drive to a quality SSD will be the single most important spec upgrade in your system as you've described it. I did it a few years ago with a first-gen Intel X25-M and haven't looked back. Seriously, boot times dropped significantly, and just about everything else that results in a system call to the OS is improved. I don't do any massive editing like you, but I can only imagine the performance improvement you'll observe when you switch.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

          I happened to wander back into these comments after Aaron posted his article and feel the need to mention...about a week or two ago, I picked up a cheap SSD for my desktop and it's true. The difference is glorious. It's not a huge drive, and only really has Windows and a few Adobe programs on it, but I've never had a system move faster. Definitely one of the best upgrades I've ever done.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      I'm actually on the opposite side of this argument. I had multi-monitors on my desktop for a couple years, but recently went back to a single screen. I'm far more productive with less distractions.

      • ssj4Gogeta

        I had a similar experience. I'd keep trying to arrange information on the displays to make myself more "productive" and get less work done in the process. Not to mention the latency in switching attention between the displays. I think unless you really need to look at a large amount of information simultaneously, a single big monitor is better. Just multiplex the available screen real-estate between windows using the taskbar. ;)

        I still think multiple monitors are great for gaming if your GPU can handle the higher res.

      • Cenarl

        well when he said he uses his nexus 7 to monitor social netowrking while on his desktop i figured he liked distractions haha.

  • LazarusDark

    Lol, I'm with you on the 5-year-behind cycle. I love to game, I just never have the time. I still keep meaning to buy and play BioShock! (really, just about the only thing I've made time to play in the last 5 years is Portal 1 and 2 and the Zelda's for the Wii. I'm waaay behind.)

    "Yes, it means you'll see a file manager and Google hates that. Maybe even for good reason! File managers are definitely ugly."

    There's nothing wrong with a good file manager.

    • randomchars

      Agreed. Solid explorer is definitely not ugly.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      File managers, as a concept, are uglier than "here's the data you want, and here are some things you can do with it." That's the point that Google makes in the linked article and that I (sort of) agree on. By the very inclusion of QuickPic, I obviously think there are exceptions to be made, but for most people's use cases, you shouldn't need to navigate a list of folders to get to where you're going. I use Astro regularly and as its own UI is concerned, it's great. I love it. I'm also a power user. The argument that file managers should be avoided (though not forbidden) is one I can generally agree with, though. That's all I meant to imply.

  • Wayne Randall

    No "Here's what Eric uses for an ink pen".. sadface

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      You're totally right, this should be here. Since I didn't take photos for this, I'll simply tell you. My one rule is, the pen has to look classy as heck. I usually prefer something chrome with black trim (big surprise) or, alternatively, something maroon or deep blue. Always black ink. Ball point, but with a light flow. I can't stand pens that just bleed on to paper.

      I don't spend a ton of money on pens, but if I had a bunch of money I totally would. However, I have two rules when buying a pen: if you wouldn't want to pull it out while you're wearing a suit and tie, don't buy it at all. And if you can't touch the paper after you've written with it without smearing ink all over your hands, throw it away. After all, you don't want to get ink on your nice suit.

      • Freak4Dell

        I like the way you think. I hardly ever use pens (I prefer pencil for anything that isn't official, so I can edit what I write), but when I do, I like using good ones. The cheap pens are terrible.

    If you had to choose between a 10" tablet or a 7", which would you pick?

    I ask because I really want to get a tablet, but I can only afford/justify one, and I'm torn between getting the Nexus 7 or waiting for the mythical yet-to-be-announced Nexus 10.

    Is reading on a 10" tablet really that bad?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/eric-ravenscraft/ Eric Ravenscraft

      Reading on the Xoom wasn't *bad*, per se, but it was heavy. Then again, the Xoom is a heavier-than-average tablet. If you could find a decent 10" tablet that you like, then go for it, but I'd definitely recommend playing with it in a store first if you can. You don't think the weight matters all that much until you have to hold it up for prolonged periods. I wouldn't hold out for the Nexus 10 of legend, just because who knows if that's gonna be a real thing. We hear whispers and rumors, but until something materializes, I wouldn't get your hopes up. The Nexus 7 is definitely a great choice (especially because of stock Jelly Bean). I think it's the safer option right now. I would still generally prefer a 10" tablet if I had my choice, but unfortunately, we still haven't seen a fully stock 10" slate, and a lot of the others are skinned by manufacturers to a poor degree (see Ron's review of the Galaxy Note 10.1), or they're more than double the cost of the Nexus 7 (Transformer Prime). It's mainly for a lack of good options (to me) that I don't use a 10" tablet daily. But if there was a Nexus 10, you can bet I'd go for that in a heartbeat. Not sure if that helps, but those are my two cents.
