Editor's Notes

January 21, 2019:

It's a shame that pretty much every decent option out there requires some kind of subscription service and a signed contract before some items will even ship. Some units, like the Datio Base Station, make it a little easier by doing everything through their app and making the function of their hardware dependent on the presence of their software. A little favor was also given to complete systems, as a POS without a cash drawer and/or a card reader seems like a bad idea.

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).
