Experience

My Gear

My daily driver is a custom-built desktop PC I have upgraded and maintained since 2015. Currently, it is running Windows 10 with an Intel Core i5-6600K CPU (still kicking!), an MSI RTX 3070 GPU, 16GB of RAM, and three SSDs in a Fractal Design case.

For peripherals, I use a Ducky x Varmillo Miya Pro 65% mechanical keyboard, a Logitech MX Master 2s mouse, a Novelkeys desk pad, a Blue Yeti microphone, a Logitech B525 webcam, and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro (80 OHM) headphones plugged into a Fiio E10K Olympus 2 DAC.

When traveling, I use a Dell XPS 15 and a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3s.

Outside work, I use an iPhone SE, Apple Watch SE, iPad, Amazon Fire TV, Nintendo Switch, Audio-Technica AT-LP 60 turntable, and Edifier R1280DB bookshelf speakers for everyday living and entertainment.

Education

Harry attended New York University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Writing & Game Design.

A Message from Harry Rabinowitz

I want non-technically people to be able to enjoy and understand the technology that drives their everyday routine. Informed consumers make informed choices, and I believe informed decision making is how we make progress in everything—not just in which smartphone to buy.
