Car Cable Management

I have three things that I wanted to power in my car: a wireless car charger, a dashcam and a rear view dashcam setup in my car. I only have two power outlets in my car, one that’s always on and one that’s ignition switch enabled. I tried running the dashcams off the always on outlet, afterall they have capacitors and only turn the screens on for a brief moment when loading up, how much power can they draw?

Amazon Prime Video still needs some TLC

Amazon had the new Doctor Who series for only $3! but then didn’t tell anyone that it was going to be on a 24 hour delay, so I just found a stream online and watched it that way. Additionally the Amazon Prime app has no functional way to see what television episodes I own but have not watched.

Michael becomes a hurricane as it heads to US

MIAMI (AP) – The Latest on Tropical Storm Michael (all times local):   This is heading my way and we’re already seeing gas stations and grocery stores shutting down due to lack of product.
