Podcasting/Recording Tools (Low/No Cost Tools)
I just got this little puppy, and it has literally CHANGED THE GAME for my podcasting! The CAD U37 Mic is responsible for my voice being so much clearer than when I was using my earbuds. They were ok, but this is a GIGANTIC SHIFT. And you know me, I research cost-effective options that give the same or better result. Season 2 of my podcast was recorded using this mic, and I'll rant about it until I get another one. IT plugs right into my laptop and being recording. It's that simple! For the price ($46), it's awesome. Here's an Amazon link: http://amzn.to/1gmUeV3
I've been a Mac guy since college, and I've always been in a position to need one - both corporately and personally. As a graphic designer, I designed logos. As an author, I write books and eBooks, as well as design product covers. Macs are beautiful for life. They sync with all my stuff in life: phone, calendar, reminders, movies, music . . . everything! This is the one I have. There's no cheap way around it, Macs cost what they cost . . . just like success. Price: $1,200. This investment is a little steep, and yes you an get a used one. However, my last Mac lasted my 11 years, and came with all the bells and whistles I needed. So do the new ones! It'll last you a decade. That's only $100/yr. Here's a link: http://amzn.to/1KmrEzc
