Welcome to my battlestation! As a software developer and gamer, having a capable PC for both productivity and play is very important to me. And along with my PC, I have a fleet of other personal devices that I use on a regular basis.
Radiance (rev. 8)
Radiance is my very first DIY system build, not only for which I researched and hand-picked every component myself, but also which I put together with my own hands. It is my pride and joy for this very reason, despite it being strictly a mid-range build, and I eagerly look forward to upgrades and future system builds.
The name Radiance comes from the purple and white color scheme I chose. It's no RGB, but it's discreet yet distinctive.
Revision 8, Radiance's biggest incremental upgrade yet, changes its course from Intel to AMD with the 2nd-generation flagship AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, my first of what is sure to be a number of AMD Ryzen processors.
Already an unprecedented value for the performance and productivity of 8 cores and 16 threads, I got it for half price from Amazon on Black Friday 2019. I then complemented it with the MSI B450M Mortar MAX (only needed for 3rd-generation Ryzen but the original is EOL anyway) and 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200 RAM, and expanded my internal storage with a 512 GB ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro SSD.
Oh and I performed the upgrade on Friday the 13th of December 2019, of course. The Wraith Prism RGB cooler works great on top of being drop-dead gorgeous — and customizable, which is why I've changed it to fit the purple and white color scheme.
This MacBook Pro was given to me by my big brother when my MacBook broke down. It's a build-to-order model with a high-resolution 1680x1050 antiglare display and an aftermarket 128 GB SSD.
I'm no longer an avid macOS user but I do still use it on a daily basis. I love Day One and have yet to find a worthy replacement for it on Windows. Maybe I'll just build my own! Someday.

iBolt SE is my first iPhone in 2 years and 3 months after an amazing run with my Windows Phone, Lumia Flourish, as my daily driver.
Indeed, I never really left the Apple ecosystem, so it didn't take long to get back into the swing of things. iBolt SE now also serves as my primary camera and media player, while iBolt atto IV remains as a backup media player and a fashion accessory, and Lumia Flourish continues to serve as my primary accessibility device with Emergency Chat for Windows.

iBolt atto IV
I'm a traditionalist: I've always liked having a cellphone and a portable media player as two separate devices. (Don't ask me how I ended up using iPhones for over six years.) When I made the switch from iOS to Windows Phone, I knew right away that I needed an iPod if I wanted to stay in sync with my mature iTunes database.
I've always wanted one of those clip-on iPod shuffles since the 2nd-generation iPod shuffle came out, and now I finally own one (in purple, no less!). It pairs excellently with Lumia Flourish, with that click wheel being nearly the same size as the Lumia 830's camera housing!
All my iPods are named iBolt atto as a parody of the iPod mini and iPod nano.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S750
I've only ever owned one dedicated camera: a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S750 that I received for free as part of some sort of promotion back in 2008. I never named it, but it served me well; I will be retiring it on its 10th anniversary as my smartphone is now my primary camera.
