Editor's Notes

December 16, 2018:

In years past, Apple would likely have been pushed back by a lack of flexibility and significant RAM limitations in their laptops, but their more recent lineup features impressive enough specs, married to their spectacular displays, to push them toward the top of the list. Microsoft's Surface series offers serious options for Windows users.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
