My favorite VPN / daily driver: TorGuard VPN(Review)
TorGuard VPN has been my daily use VPN for around 5 years. It’s always been super solid in almost every single category, and it’s become a company I do trust with my privacy. It doesn’t pay for any reviews, and hardly does any marketing, but I don’t mind directing loads of customers to them because they deserve it. TorGuard is fast, trustworthy, and feature-rich with no logs! It’s also the cheapest VPN on the market for only $5 a month or $30 a year with code “TomSpark” or uses code “Netflix” to get 50% off the streaming bundle.
My Favorite Browser: Brave Browser(Review)
Before Brave, I always liked Chrome. It had the best speeds, best interface, and worked great with add-ons. But when Brave came out, I found I enjoyed being able to easily control anti-tracking features without needing additional plugins that I used to secure Chrome, and the company itself is great making awesome improvements every year and providing ways for creators like me to monetize my content by recommending it to my viewers. It’s also got some cool features to boot, like being able to use a TOR browser tab, integrate torrent downloads, and more!
If you want to create a blog or website like this, you will need a web host. A lot of web host providers are owned by a huge company called EIG (Bluehost, Hostgator, etc), and most of these companies don’t care about your privacy and anonymity and they upsell charge you on basic things like WHOIS protection.
Dreamhost is an entirely different company, that does care about user privacy and provides things for free (non-renewable up charges, free SSL certificate, etc) that other web hosts charge for!
My two favorite password managers are LastPass and Bitwarden. Lots of people scoff at me recommending LastPass because it’s not opensource or that it had vulnerabilities in the past–but open source isn’t everything, and Bitwarden has had vulnerabilities too! Lastpass has a speedy development team implementing new features, fixing bugs quickly, and it’s only gotten better to use over the years.
At this point, the free model is equivalent to Bitwarden and you don’t even need to pay to use most of the features it offers! I love the interface and intuitive use of it, it works great on mobile, it requires less day-to-day input/configuration with needless versifications, and it’s my favorite cloud-based password manager to use.
My Favorite Antivirus: Malwarebytes(Review )
Nowadays, most antivirus do pretty much the same thing–and other people who claim otherwise are testing too many viruses on their virtual machines. I don’t think using a full-fledged suite like Norton or Bitdefender is worth it anymore.
I like Malwarebytes for its cheap price, and easy to use software that doesn’t get in the way or try to up-sell you with needless purchases. The free model is decent for scanning, but the pro model is worth it for the real-time protection which prevents you from downloading stupid stuff or going to dumb websites.
My Favorite Office Chair: Steelcase Leap(Review)
I’ve been sitting on the same chair for 3 years, (2 years before that with a beat down Version 1 chair) and if I showed it to you, I don’t think you’d believe it since it looks brand new! I even made areview of it a while back and still sit in it today!
Steelcase is an amazing brand of ergonomic chairs that make chairs that easily last 20+ years. They are super comfortable, adjustable, and VERY expensive–but very worth it. If the price is too much, you can usually find a renewed version for 50% off.
I want to try and test more office chairs (Herman Miller Embody etc,) and some more gaming chairs, but it’s expensive, and companies don’t want to send me chairs to test lol.
My favorite Headset Brand: HyperX Cloud Headset(Review)
If you wear glasses and want a comfortable gaming headset, then go for the HyperX brand no questions asked. Super comfortable, good quality audio, and good prices!
