How We Work, 2015:  Dave Greenbaum’s Gear and Productivity Tips  February 18, 2016 – 04:30 pm

How We Work, 2015: Dave Greenbaum’s Gear and Productivity TipsEvery week, we ask interesting people how they work. This week we're answering our own questions about how people get it done. After all, don't ask a question you wouldn't feel comfortable answering yourself. Now it's my turn.

  • Location: Lawrence, KS (Rock Chalk)
  • Current Gig: Owner/Technician at DoctorDave Computer Repair, Weekend Writer at Lifehacker
  • One word that best describes how you work: Always
  • Current mobile device: iPhone 5s protected in an obnoxiously large case.How We Work, 2015: Dave Greenbaum’s Gear and Productivity Tips People say "It's so big"
  • Current computer: At my desk: Macbook Pro 13", Mid 2012, Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo (runs Windows 7); Mobile: Macbook Pro Mid 2009, Asus Chromebook; On the elliptical: Sony Vaio (Windows 8.1) ; Kitchen: Lenovo Touchscreen (Windows 8.1). A ton of other computers throughout the house and a collection of old Macs in my basement dating back to the Mac Plus and PCs going back to DOS 5.0. After all, what if we find a new tip for Windows for Workgroups?

How We Work, 2015: Dave Greenbaum’s Gear and Productivity TipsWhat apps/software/tools can't you live without? Why?

I have a ton of Google-based accounts, so Mailplane lets me check them all at once. For all my work at Lifehacker, Pocket tracks all my articles. As I read, I can email articles directly to Pocket and tag them for Lifehacker. If I don't write about them immediately, I can send them directly to Evernote. Evernote keeps my Pocket tags, so I can easily track my article ideas when I'm stuck.

How We Work, 2015: Dave Greenbaum’s Gear and Productivity TipsWith all my computers and tablets, I keep all my stuff in sync with Dropbox and use either Parallels Access or Chrome Remote Desktop to get to it all remotely. Dropbox keeps my 1Password in sync so I never worry about remembering my logins. Backblaze and Crashplan keep me backed up in case one of my hard drives go belly up.

The one tool I couldn't live without is my Matias Tactile Pro keyboard. It's an old-school clickety-clack mechanical keyboard. I always missed my big Apple Extended Keyboard and this is the closest thing to it. Over five years later, the keys haven't worn off.

What's your workspace setup like?

My primary workspace is my home office, but that's usually only at the beginning and the end of the day. I'm mobile most of the time, and I constantly change out my mobile devices. That way I'm not too comfortable with any one device. One week I'll pick an Android tablet, another the iPad, and then I'll use the Chromebook. It just depends on my mood.
