Hey kids it’s Tommy, and for today’s Tommylog TECH I want to talk to you about how I use the Moto Z Force smart phone in my daily hustle. As many of you may know, two weeks ago I was laid off. I’ve been starting my own business and I’ve been working remotely a lot. A coffee shop here, a patio there, or a restaurant over there. The Moto Z has been my constant companion.
My good friends at Verizon also supplied me with three MODs to make my remote work experience just awesome. The TUMI Power Pack wireless battery MOD, the JBL SoundBoost speaker MOD, and the Motorola Insta–Share Projector MOD.
First let me tell you about The TUMI Power Pack MOD. This MOD adds wireless charging capabilities to my Moto Z as well as gives me almost all day wireless hotspot use. This is huge. I rarely trust public free Wi-Fi hotspot locations, and this makes it so I don’t have to.
Next, when I’m working remotely, I like to have my tunes with me, iI’s no fun to work in the quiet. The JBL Sound Boost MOD gives the Moto Z amazing speakers so I can crank my 80s hair band music – – this is a judgment free zone please don’t mock – – and I love it. The sound is as amazing as you’d expect from the people at JBL.
And last but not least is the Insta – Share Projector MOD from Motorola. This has to be the biggest sleeper and hidden gem of them all for working and collaborating remotely. Sure I’ve watched cartoons and videos with my children on the ceiling in their rooms. That works rather well. But on the road while I’m trying to earn a buck, watching movies isn’t what I want to be doing. So I found a use that is really amazing with my friends. Google created an application called chrome remote desktop. This application can be downloaded for your Mac, your PC, iOS or android device.
Look here for the full scoop on Chrome Rremote Desktop.
Once installed, this allows me to cast my Mac OS X screen from my laptop onto the Moto Z. Then I hook on the Insta-Share Projector, now my Mac screen can be projected on the wall- can you believe 80 inches of hi-def goodness in the palm of your hand?? It is really remarkable. No longer do I have my friends cram around my small screen when we’re collaborating on a project. Bam! Let me project the presetnation on the Wall and we can all work together. This solution is perfect for presentation or a word document that you’re working on. This is not a good solution if you want to share a video in this regard. There are other ways to solve that problem. Also note battery life is only about an hour or two. So bring your charger if you want to do a lot of projecting.
So there you have it kids – – this is how I use the Moto Z Force in my daily hustle as a new budding entrepreneur. Thank you to my great friends at Verizon for supplying me with this great tech. This is Tommy with TommyLog TECH, if you have any questions or comments please leave them in the notes below. I answer them all myself and I love comments. You guys rock!!
