Upgrading Krispy’s Tech

Here we are into April already and I sit here plotting the upgrades in my life as I always seem to do this time of the year.  So far this year I have done a couple upgrades already with a new phone (upgraded my LG G3 to the new Huawei Nova Plus) and a new Tablet.  The phone upgrade was really because it was time, I did an early upgrade as the battery on my G3 was more than a little flakey.  The tablet though…may seem like a strange choice in a world that is constantly looking to be bigger and better as I got myself a diminutive Acer Iconia One Android Tablet that is not much bigger than my phone…but acts primarily as a ebook reader.

In the coming weeks and months though, I am really looking at doing a monster upgrade of the tech and services that I am connected to.

The first upgrade will be happening in a couple of weeks with a massive step up to a new ISP (Internet Service Provider) with some monster upgrades to speed, and with that I will be shopping for a new router.  With a big property, I am wanting to make sure that I can get WiFi all the back corner of the yard when I am sitting around the fire pit and enjoying a glass of wine.

Another upgrade that is planned is jumping into the world of wearable technology.  I am waiting on the delivery of a Kingwear K88 Smartwatch, but would like to invest in the Huawei Watch that will be a companion to my new phone.

I am unsure if I will be making my computing more mobile and getting away from the use of a Chromebook (I had a mini upgrade to my daughters old chromebook when we got her a new Windows 10 Laptop for college in the fall)…I do like how I can do 95% of the things I do with a computer from a very light and focused platform, but as I challenge myself to get more and more into development, I am finding that the chromebook is not quite cutting it.

My desktop PC will be 5 years old in a few months and while I future proofed its construction when I built it I am finding that the massive Power Supply is a bit of a pain as I try to trim my overall power consumption around the house.  The real question is, do I just go for a laptop and build myself a NAS (Network Attached Storage) for all my files?  These are the types of things that have me scratching my head as I am not sure if I really want to be chained to a desk anymore when I am doing my core computing.

Well, here I sit on a gorgeous Saturday Afternoon and wonder…what will the future of Krispy’s Technology be?
