My Everyday Tech (Early 2022)
Hey, everyone. Lately, a lot of people in the tech community have been sharing their everyday tech for the rest of 2022. As a result, I figured that I might as well join the party. If nothing else, it should be fun to look back on this in a few years, but hopefully this will be interesting for you guys, too. So, here is my current everyday tech, ranging from devices to accessories.
Phone: iPhone 12
I’ve been daily driving the iPhone 12 for about half a year now, and it’s proven itself to be an excellent phone. It does all I need it to, it’s super fast, and its cameras can produce some very nice photos. It easily gets me through the day, and I don’t really have any complaints about it. Thus, it’s the phone that I will be using for or the rest of 2022 and then some.
Tablet: iPad (6th generation)
It’s essentially as powerful as an iPhone 7, but this iPad is still a decent media playback and note-taking device. It may not be the latest and greatest, but it does what I need it to.
Laptop: MacBook Air (2017)
I recently purchased this used MacBook Air, and I’ve been highly impressed by it. From web browsing to work in Photoshop Elements, it can handle most of what I throw at it without any issues.
Camera: Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70
I’ve had this Lumix for less than a month, but it’s already become my favorite camera. It takes great photos and videos, has an impressive 30x optical zoom, and is super compact. It does have some difficulty in low light, but it can take some amazing photos in more ideal conditions. You can check out some of the photos I took on it in my December 2021 photo roundup.
Backpack: Bruno Cavalli Laptop Backpack
I got this backpack for free a while ago, and it’s actually pretty nice. It has a USB passthrough thing for battery packs, a laptop sleeve, and several pouches and pockets. It’s not my main backpack, but it’s the one that I use for travel and whatnot.
Watch: Seiko SNK807
While I alternate between a lot of different watches, the Seiko SNK807 is the one that I tend to wear the most. It has an automatic mechanical movement, a super cool dial, and a lot of extra features that are uncommon for a watch of its price. It’s an awesome watch, and I like it a lot.
Headphones: AirPods 3
I know there’s been a lot of Apple stuff on this list, but the AirPods 3 are too good not to include. They sound really nice, pair with my other Apple devices seamlessly, and just work. My only problem with them is that they are a bit uncomfortable in my ears sometimes, but otherwise I’ve been very happy with them.
Stylus: Apple Pencil (1st generation)
I don’t really do art, but the Apple Pencil has still proven itself to be very useful for me. It’s great for taking notes, plus it makes it even easier to navigate through the iPad’s UI. It works well even with my older iPad, and it’s undeniably a handy piece of kit.
Mouse: HP Bluetooth Travel Mouse
Finally, there’s the mouse that I take with me to address. I got this HP Bluetooth mouse a little over a year ago, and it’s quite nice. It has back and forward buttons and horizontal scrolling, both very nice for productivity. It’s also super portable, runs on standard AA batteries, and can switch between two paired devices on the fly. If you can’t tell, I really like this thing.
Wrapping Things Up…
So, that’s my everyday tech as of early 2022! No, I don’t take all of this with me wherever I go, but these are the gadgets that I use the most on a given day. It’s also worth noting that I’ve written blog posts on several of these devices, so you can take a look at those for more info on them. Anyway, I hope that you’ve found this list interesting, and thanks for reading!
