Motorola Moto G6 Review We've gotten quite a few requests for a budget android phone pick, so we're reviewing Motorola's $249.99 Moto G6 this week! How good are the camera, screen, and battery life? Is Gorilla Glass back a fingerprint magnet? How does it compare to flagships like the Pixel 2 and OnePlus 6? Watch the video to find out!
TAP Wearable Keyboard One handed typing people... hold your phone or tablet w/ one hand, 'type' without looking at the screen. It looks like cyberpunk brass knuckles... does the TAP wearable keyboard actually make it easy to type with one hand? Watch the video to find out!
Format Drive Before Using??? Recover Your Data First!!! Howard writes, "I have a external hard drive that I use as a backup, but lately when I plug it in with USB it gives me an error message telling me I have to format the drive to access it. How do I refreshed the partition table so I don't lose my files." We talk fixing partition tables in Windows, why we'd run a data recovery tool like Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery or Kroll Ontrack EasyRecovery Home first, and a hot tip to make USB drive recovery work better!
Best Podcatcher??? Homer emailed firstname.lastname@example.org, "What is the best podcast downloader, can you give me some answers?" Yes. Yes we can. Pocket Casts is pretty awesome... available on Android, iOS, SONOS, etc. Homer emailed back, "for a Windows 10 computer too." In that case, Grover Pro is probably the best Win10 podcatcher out there!
VM Hardware Recco! Your knowledge of VPNs keeps pouring in!!! Mark's "been using VMware products since the late 90’s," and sent in some great tips on hardware specs to get the best results when running a VM on your computer. Watch the video to hear 'em. Thanks, Mark!!!

Do Something Analog Like build marble powered computers!!! Patrick's family supported the Turing Tumble Kickstarter. You build mechanical computers, and the whole thing is set up as a set of increasingly difficult logic puzzles. It’s not Minecraft, but the boys are loving it. And -shhhhh- they’re learning!
Thank You Patrons! Without your support via patreon.com/tekthing, we wouldn't be able to make the show for you every week!
