I dropped my Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) with the tip landing on the floor first. The tip broke off and left a portion of it in the Apple Pencil.
I watch a couple of YouTube videos on how to remove the stuck portion, and I think
this video is the best. It uses a pincer to grip on the stuck portion and slowly unscrew it out. OEM Apple Pencil (2nd Generation) Replacement Tip

If you need any type of cable for your gadgets, Ugreen will probably have them.
I was looking for a USB Extension Cable to extend out from the USB charging port of my
Aeon Labs Aeotec Z-Wave Smart Switch 6 (Gen5). This will allow Li Xiang to use the Xiaomi USB Fan to circulate the wind around her plants. Ugreen USB 3.0 Extension Cable – Packaging Front

Uni-T is becoming my favourite go-to brand for cheap meters. The “T” in the name stands for “Trend.”

After almost three years, my
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Electric Toothbrush (HX9924/46) decided to give up of me. There is some issue with the power connection because I could not charge it or power it on.
I am sure the battery is charged as I left it on overnight, and there is an indicator that it was charging. However, when I took it out the next morning, I could not power it on.

When I think of NAS, there are always three brands that came to my mind. Synology, QNAP, and ASUSTOR. All three brands are from Taiwan. I reviewed Synology NAS many times and did my first QNAP NAS review in December.
To complete the trilogy, I have with me the
Asustor Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) which is equivalent to the Synology DS920+ and QNAP TS-453D. All three models are 4-bay NAS, powered by Intel Celeron J4125 and comes with 4GB of DDR4 ram. Intel J4125 is a 4-core 2.0 GHz (burstable to 2.7 GHz) processor. ASUSTOR AS6604T – Box Front
