Sony WH-1000XM4 First Thoughts

Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones My old Plantronic Back Beat Pros bit the dust, so I picked up a new pair of headphones. Those BackBeat Pros were some of the best headphones I've ever owned.

Since I have a nest of Apple Magic Mice roaming around my office, I wanted to use one of them instead of going out and buying a new mouse.

Minolta XL-400

I recently picked up a Minolta XL-400. It isn't currently working, so I can't say much about it. I'm looking forward to getting it repaired so I can run a pack of 8mm film through it.
