HomeAway Stage Austin City Limits Music Festival 2016 by Chris Heuer
Chris Rauschnot @24k spent the last weekend of September in Austin, Texas covering the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Chris was invited and sponsored by HomeAway to live in one of their rented condos in Downtown Austin, where all of the action is during ACL. The condo was conveniently located about six blocks away from the ACL shuttle stop and a few blocks away from the Four Seasons Austin. To get to Austin, Chris flew nonstop from Las Vegas via a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 airplane.
The Austin City Limits Music Festival is in its 15th year and entertains about 450,000 people over three days and two weekends. There are many stages setup around Zilker Park, which is across the river from Downtown Austin. One thing to note about Austin is that it does not have Uber or Lyft. They have multiple ride-sharing options however and the one Chris choose to travel with happened to have helpful and fun drivers.

Finding a feature-rich and portable projector to travel with can be difficult with so many options out there. ZTE’s Spro 2 takes most of the guesswork out of the decision making process by combining three great features in one small package. It puts you in control with an integrated AT&T 4G LTE hotspot and enough dual-band wireless signal to share that up to ten WiFi devices. It operates on Android 4.4 KitKat with access to the Google Play App Store and is a decent personal projector, for about $299.99, a qualifying data plan required for this model.
Fitness and activity tracking wearables continue to be a hot topic several years into their development. Refinements, added functionality, apps and accessories have expanded the market even further. I have tested several devices from Withings, Nike and Motorola. I wanted to try something new for several upcoming trips and I saw that the BLAZE looked cooler than their Charge HR. The Fitbit BLAZE is my first experience with the brand. I picked up an XL from a local AT&T Store. Continue reading Review: Fitbit BLAZE Fitness Tracker & Smartwatch

Looking for that hot new smartphone made for traveling with some of the latest photography technology, but don’t want to break the bank? Huawei (wah-way), the maker of the highly successful Nexus 6P, has come up with the Honor 8unlocked Android smartphone. It comes in an exclusive Sapphire Blue color with dual 12MP lenses on the back, only at Best Buy.
Looking to produce excellent selfies? Well, Huawei has you covered again with an 8M large pixel (1.4um) wide-angle front-facing camera. Most cameras on the front of smartphones come with a 1um pixel size, but the extra .4um gives you extra light for better looking photos.

My favorite feature of Toy Of The Year Award Winner For 2016 HEXBUG’s kit is that is was easily built, but provided for a few hours of educational fun. Additional challenges included in this kit were to figure out how to build the mechanical scorpion and chopper.
