ZEN & TECH 66: Tech for living Zen


Lego Technic is a really awesome series. My 6 year old likes Lego Technic more than regular Lego. Technic is challenging for a 6 year, but in my case is great father son activity away from electronics.

I really enjoyed this and my only comment is from a safety standpoint. It might be dangerous to place your phone on the steering wheel or anywhere airbags could deploy. That being said, I have done the same thing, myself.

Great show as usual. I also love Lego, it helps with dexterity, and being a guitarist, it really helps my playing. What is amazing to me is the music apps. The ability to just plug a guitar straight into an iPhone, or iPad, and record/make music is amazing. With just a little extra cables, microphones, and stands, you can bring the recording studio to the players, record, then mix down later at the studio. Auria is one great app using the iPad, or Logic Pro X using a MacBook
You missed the coffee maker. Aerobie Aero Press, and yes Rene is right, it is all about the freshness of the beans. Always get fresh whole beans, and grind yourself just before making. Rene, and Georgia, you should try 49th parallel from Canada. Very smooth espresso, and are, well to die for.
