The recent purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk has once again triggered a lot of people to seek social media networks that aren't Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. I've been there myself. In the past, I've always reached the same conclusion that I have too many friends, family, and acquaintances I value still remain on the Big 3 as I don't want to leave them behind. So this time around it's easy for me to say, I'm not leaving Twitter. However, if the closing of Google+ taught me anything then it taught me to always have a Plan B and be open to the other social networks out there.

My Qwiizlab USB C Hub for my Apple Mac Mini M1

My Qwiizlab USB C Hub for my Apple Mac Mini M1 The Qwiizlab UH25 SE with the Mac Mini M1 Bryan Ruby Thu, 10/27/2022 - 16:51

A year ago I purchased for home use Apple's Mac Mini M1 with 512 GB SSD built into the computer. Coming more from a Windows and Linux background, it wasn't the operating system or Apple services that lured me to make the purchase but instead its small footprint in both size and presence. While the Mac Mini is a neat computer on its own, there are a couple tradeoffs. The negatives include fewer ports and the lack of ability to upgrade both memory and internal storage. I was afraid to turn this around, I was looking at unattractive cables to external devices spread across my desktop making that "small footprint" no more. Luckily, I looked and found a more elegant solution with my purchase of the newly released Qwiizlab UH25 SE USB C Hub.
