Editor's Notes

December 19, 2018:

With the glut of Chromebooks and 2-in-1s that has hit the market in recent years, there appear to be more options for kids than ever. Apple made the list, but their price point and marriage to thunderbolt connectivity kept them from the top spots, while companies like Dell, HP, and LG, offer up great units that are often a better combo of price and features for kids.

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).
