06:22 Eero WiFi Router?
Justin sums up a bunch of emails we’ve gotten this week, “I have heard some hype about Eero, a new Wifi mesh network advertised to home owners. Any chance you will be testing this product? I would love to see if the marketing lives up to real world performance.” We talk about what Eero claims, where it should work the best (BIG HOUSES), what we would use (for a lot less money) in a smaller home, and more!

31:53 SD Card Pro Tip!
Got an SD card from new camera (or phone, or ???) full o’ data and your PC gives you an error and tells you you need to reformat the card? Shannon’s got a protip that explains what’s happening, the easy fix and more. (Like the SD Card Associations most excellent SD Card Formatter.)

34:32 Camera Reccos For a Big Trip?
John writes, “I’m going on my first overseas trip to Japan, and couldn’t be more excited. What I’m not excited about, is capturing this awesome trip solely with the camera on my phone. I’m turning to you good folks with the hopes of getting some advice on places to rent cameras online, as well as recommendations on a camera to take.” Watch the video to hear what we’d reccomend, and sources for camera rentals, too!

40:40 Do Something Analog:
And remember … once in awhile… put down the phone, step away from the screen, close the laptop… and do something analog, like learn a new language!!!
