Blue light from a computer or phone can age the skin as badly as the midday Sun

Leading Optometrist, Dhruvin Patel is a specialist in the impact of blue light on eye health – that is light produced by phone and computer screens. 

Blue Light can make it harder to fall asleep and have an impact on the health of eyes

Researchers say exposure to blue light could increase the risk of damage to eyesight and make it harder to fall asleep.

Patel shared his tips for minimising the impact from blue light while working from home or using screens. 

1. Work an arm’s length from the screen

Fully extend your arm and work from a distance – looking from your eyes to the end of your fingertips. 

Use this as a minimum distance to reduce the stress on your eyeballs. 

2. 20/20/20 

Simply put, every 20 minutes, look away from the screen for a minimum of 20 seconds at least 20 feet away. 

This will help

Tablet and phone cameras monitor mask-wearing and distancing in cafes and lobbies

A tech startup in the Seattle area is offering new software that it says can help businesses track whether they are COVID-safe, including monitoring for whether employees and customers are wearing masks and social distancing.

The four-year-old startup Nomad Go in Kirkland, Washington, sells software for building management — to monitor lines and speed of service, for example. When the coronavirus pandemic hit, co-founder and CEO David Greschler realized his company’s image analysis tools could be enhanced to show not only percent occupancy, but also mask compliance and if people are properly distancing.

“That data can be used by a manager or someone at the company headquarters to understand, ‘How are our spaces being used?'” Greschler explained. “Are people being compliant in terms of wearing masks, in terms of social distancing, and just in general, how many people are coming in and out of our store.”

Samsung DeX 101: Turn a Galaxy phone or tablet into your primary computer

The promise of using your phone as your primary computer is a reality and with flagship Samsung phones priced at more than $1,000 using your phone as your computer may be a way to save money.

Modern smartphones are more powerful than the computers used just a few years ago, but over the past decade, we have seen unsuccessful attempts to turn our handheld devices into computers. Recall the Palm Foleo in 2007, the Redfly Mobile Companion in 2009, or the Motorola Atrix in 2011.

Thanks so much Alex and team. Sold my old computers and they even have an old school Atari to play!


From what I can tell, Recycle My Machine is the only electronics store in town that will pay you for your e-waste. My boyfriend had a handful of old computers that he’d been meaning to get rid of, and with the start of 2019 I’d been bothering him to get rid of them (#tidyingup).

This place has weird hours and is only open on Saturday’s but we finally made it over one weekend. The place is a little difficult to find among the other storefronts but once you get inside you know that it’s techie space.

The guys said it would take about 20 minutes/computer and said we could leave while they looked at them. We had other

BYOD once again comes to the rescue of a hard drive in distress. I had lost nearly a TB of important data when my HDD had become completely unreadable. Noel took a look, and even though it required some extra special work, he was able to recover everything! Given the state of the hard drive damage, BYOD gave me a great deal as well! Noel continues to live up to his reputation as one of the best in SoCal. Friendly service, very thorough, real professionals. Thanks, BYOD!


Clean. Precise. Professional. Recommended. The services provided exceeded expectations.


Noel is the best in L.A. This is my second time doing business with him. My Laptop bit the dust and he was kind enough to not only be honest about my hard drive being damaged and not worth repairing,
