Best microSD cards for your Nintendo Switch in 2018

Don’t let the tiny hard drive get you down — the Nintendo Switch has expandable storage!

The Nintendo Switch has proven itself to be a powerhouse worthy of the Nintendo legacy. Gamers have embraced the tablet console hybrid with around 15 million units sold. After about a year on the market, there is now a ton of killer games available on the Nintendo eShop. This may see some gamers running into the problem of where to put all those games.

If you’re anything like me then the meager 32GB of storage available on the Switch when you first take it out of the box is not nearly enough. With the sheer volume of fantastic games in the eShop that can be downloaded directly to your Switch, storage can quickly become an issue. If you are looking to put a little extra space on your Switch then you are going to want to expand your storage with a microSD card. Here are some of the fastest and best microSD cards available for use on the Nintendo Switch.

Photoshop Without Photoshop: The Best Online Image Editors

Save yourself beaucoup bucks by running an almost-as-good image editor for free in your web browser.

A bare-bones subscription to Adobe Photoshop will run you roughly $120 a year. The pared-down Photoshop Elements costs around $100. Even a well-regarded rival like Pixelmator will set you back $30 — a pretty steep ask if you just want to make a quick birthday card for your significant other.

So please, nobody tell Adobe about the surprisingly robust market for free Photoshop-alike programs that run entirely in your web browser.

None completely matches Photoshop’s features, and some are definitely better than others. But whether you use Photoshop to tweak photos, create art, or design Web mockups or printed materials, you’ll likely find a web-based tool that provides enough of its abilities at a reasonable $0 price tag. After testing a number of online image editors, I’ve found three that come closest to Photoshop in power and ease of use.

How to adjust the EQ (audio levels) on your HomePod

If you think the HomePod puts out sound that’s too bass-heavy, you can make adjustments to the EQ … if you’re listening through AirPlay.

I am hugely impressed with the sound quality produced by HomePod. Its ability to fill a room — to make it almost seem as though music is playing all around me — is a feat of technological advancement that is absolutely astounding.

That being said, the HomePod’s fine-tuning suffers from that unnatural bass equalization that to some makes for better depth, but to others sounds a bit muddy.

If you’re of the latter camp, there’s not a lot you can do when listening to music directly from your HomePod, but when AirPlaying, you have a lot of options for adjusting the equalization, adding in a bit more of those highs to balance out the sound.

Cord cutting: 18 months later, I don’t miss cable TV

Or the bill that came with it.

Subscribe to Modern Dad on YouTube

It’s more than a little strange to try to explain cable TV to my kids. To them, images on a screen are just the result of whatever app you picked. Those of us of a certain age, however, can remember a time when televisions weren’t flat, when pictures weren’t color, and when antennas and tinfoil were constantly adjusted. To them, there’s no difference between network and cable channels, premium or otherwise. It’s all #content, and it’s all available, all the time.

It’s also easier than ever — easier, but not painless — to mix and match and, ultimately, save some cash in the process.

That was the goal back in the fall of 2016. My wife and I looked at our $245-a-month cable bill and figured there had to be a better way to spend that money. Or, even better, to save some of that $3,000 a year to be spent somewhere else.

So we started researching on what we needed to do to get rid of cable TV. Wa…
