Hak 5 – Hacking Tools & Media

Hak 5 is the pentester and ethical hackers dream store. Everything you could ever want to test and learn is available at this store. I personally own a field kit by Hak 5 and it’s full of amazing gadgets that help you understand how vulnerable you really are. Pick anything from here and you or the geek in your life will love it. They also sell classes to help you learn the fundamentals of using things like the Rubber Ducky. Classes start at about $39. Products from $79+.


Garmin Venu 3

The Apple Watch is a formidable opponent when it comes to wearable technology. The life saving technology is something that’s important to me as someone who has heart disease that runs in their family. So when I left Apple ecosystem there were limited options that had the same fitness and health tracking that Apple offered. Thanksfully, I found the Venu 3. The Venu 3 is not only as good as the Apple watch…it’s better. From a fitness tracking perspective there is simply no comparison and the health tracking is considered by many to be far more accurate and complete. $399.99

Pixel Bud Pro

When it comes to working out you need something lightweight, noise cancelling, and sweat proof. Perhaps just as important is an earbud that stays in your ear as you bend down, jump around, run, and push weights around. The Pixel Bud Pro is a great sounding, light weight, tight fit headphone that I use for the gym 6 days a week. It syncs without issue and is a must have in my gym rat adventures. $119

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is the most versatile single board computer on the market. The latest version is the Raspberry Pi 5. However, the Raspberry Pi 4 is still an amazing computer capable of running as a low powered desktop, NAS, home automation and more. Check out my latest video on the Raspberry Pi 5 here. $60-80

BenQ Monitors

When it comes to professional monitors there is no better brand in my experience than BenQ. The clear color reproduction is perfect for all forms of digital artists and content creators and you’ll find that even when they’re 60Hz monitors they perform better than many 120Hz cheaper panels. I’ve had one issue where I’ve needed to replace a monitor and BenQ stood behind their product with great customer service. $600+

Some of the most engaging trainers on a bike that features a giant screen, amazing speakers, and multiple beginner, intermediate and advanced rides available. Not just for bikes, you can now use it for treadmills, rowers, and even boxing. The boxing is not as exciting as fight camp but there are some great basics and warm ups available.
