Things I like this week, volume 36.

Anker SoundBuds Slim Wireless Headphones

I’ve resisted the urge to order AirPods so far. I don’t know if that’ll last forever, but at the same time, I don’t think I’d want to wear a pair of very expensive headphones for stuff like mowing the lawn. Bluetooth is essential however, and I came across these recently. I’ve been a fan of Anker for a loooong time now. I’ve yet to get something from them that isn’t terrific, so I figured I would give these a shot.

For this price, I think they’re exceptional. Used them today: great seal in the ear, pretty respectable low end, solid battery life. And they’re water-resistant. Ordered a second pair so I can have a “clean” pair and a “dirty” one. Also because I am a child.


I switched my hosting a while back to DreamHost, and they have their own object storage solution, aptly titled DreamObjects. It’s S3 compatible, so you can use it with about a million things, and I found it easier to set up and manage than S3. They also have their own CDN option baked in, and it’s one click to enable that. Pricing is great, and you can upgrade your storage to a pre-paid plan in a variety of sizes. I’ve been very happy with DreamHost since I switched, and I’m looking forward to using this too.
