VoiceJungle: Fast, Affordable, Professional Voiceovers

This last week I was in a bit of a bind. I had to release a podcast but didn’t have the intro and outro with me. I did my best to record it myself, but having me on the intro and outro as well as the podcast didn’t sound professional. A quick search online and I found VoiceJungle, and I decided to give the service a try.

The Amazon Show may be the best purchase I’ve made in the last 12 months. I purchased one for my Mom, who lives remote and often has issues with mobile connectivity.

10 Things 8 Hours at CES 2017 Taught Me About Tomorrow’s Tech

Like an idiot, I joined 165,000 other gadget-obsessed technologists, marketers, influencers, hucksters, and assorted others at CES 2017 last week. Most of my time was spent meeting people. Or, more accurately, in Lyfts, Ubers, and cabs braving Vegas traffic from hell on my way to meeting people. But I did reserve eight hours for something everyone who loves technology should do at least once: wander the floor of the main convention halls at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show. What do you see? You see tomorrow. Or, rather, visions of tomorrow that may or may not
