How to Work (and Thrive) From Home
Wake up, put on sweats, grab a coffee, start working. Sound familiar? For some, working from home is nothing new. For others, it’s a complete 180. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, we’re here to help you get the most out of your day, from the way you work to the gear you use. Here are some tips we hope you’ll find helpful. Create a Dedicated Space While it might be tempting to work from your couch (or bed), resist the urge. Creating a dedicated workspace will help you stay focused. We recommend picking an area with low foot traffic, preferably by a window or a plant. Finding the right listening environment can also help you get in the zone. If you’re craving that concert-like atmosphere, we recommend our open-back Sennheiser HD 58X headphones (but be careful at high volume, unless you want to give your roommates a concert, too). If you prefer to listen loud with no limits, try our Meze 99 Noir closed-back headphones.  Get Comfortable (and Ergonomic)...

The most underrated Massdrop feature
Massdrop is an ever changing e-commerce site with a load of features. For someone that is new to the site, it is easy to get lost in the discussion posts of products. It is vital to ask questions about a product that you are about to purchase, but sometimes those questions do not get a response. Pictured below is where the "search" feature is located when you are looking at the discussion of a specific product (the yellow box). Use it to search for keywords that are pertinent to your question. It is very likely that someone else has already asked the same question and gotten feedback. The search feature can also be used to sort through all the posts that have been created by fellow community members. Highlighted by the yellow box in the image below. "Search" can also be used to sort through product reviews. Notes: For anyone that is curious, I am using the Dark Reader Google Chrome extension to change the colors of the Massdrop page.

Emergency/Survival Kit
Hey everyone, I'm about to embark on a fun project to build a 3 (or 5?) day survival kit for my household in Berkeley, CA. The primary reason for this is to use when "the big earthquake" hits. I was wondering if people wanted to give me suggestions on cool stuff to get/include in the kit. Here are some initial thoughts: 1) I'm generally price insensitive (within reason). I wouldn't be surprised if this kit ends up costing $2500. 2) I'm against having a firearm (I accept there are some practical reasons for this, it's just not my thing.) 3) I plan to include a sat-phone in the kit 4) I want to plan for mobility, i.e. have the kits in large containers, but also have backpacks in there so I can pack up and move if needed 5) I'm thinking 2 separate kits in 2 parts of the house, in case one becomes inaccessible when parts of my home collapse. 6) We have 2 adults and 2-year-old at home. I've literally done zero research into this, going to start now, likely going to try to post...

Vegas and the $20 sandwich trick
This is the first part of what I plan to be a multi post thread where I talk about some neat things about my favorite vacation destination, Las Vegas. The Setup When you get to your hotel, you'll line up at reception with the hundreds of other guests checking into the hotel. While waiting in line, take a $20 bill and triple-fold it so it's smaller than the size of your cards. Then "sandwich" the bill between your ID and credit card. The Gamble When you get to the front desk, they'll ask you for your ID and credit card. Hand them the sandwich, they'll split the cards up, note the $20 bill and nonchalantly leave it on the reception desk. They'll look up your booking and confirm the standard details about the check-in dates, room preferences, etc. Acknowledge that it's all correct, and then ask "Are there any complimentary upgrades available?" They'll acknowledge your request and say they'll see what they can do for you. The Suspense At this point, you'll probably see...

How Massdrop Decides on New Communities
One of the most common questions we get is: “Can Massdrop launch an [insert name here] community?” With Hub, we wanted to create a space to have this conversation in an open environment, where all community members can provide their input. We’re looking forward to hearing from all of you about which communities you’d like to see most—and we’ll also be using Hub to test these out! With every community we add, we’ll learn something new that will help us do it faster and better the next time around. What makes a good candidate for a new community? Communities can really run the gamut, but each one should possess one or more of the following qualities: Communities requested by the members of Massdrop Communities we believe we can meaningfully help and grow Communities that can be split off from our existing communities New Communities Requested by Members Our members have a say in everything we do, so our top criteria for starting a new community is that it has been requested by you...
