Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio 9/13/19 - Guy Harvey of Guy Harvey Apparel

A special episode of LimpertTech this week as Rick is joined by Guy Harvey of Guy Harvey Apparel for the entire segment.

Have a listen:

Guy Harvey of

Rick and Guy talk about his background and what’s coming in 2020. Harvey’s iconic ocean-inspired artwork which serves as the backdrop for the Spring 2020 launch. The Spring 2020 collection focuses on Guy’s original artwork showcased on versatile and durable clothing designed to perform from the day’s first cast, to the night’s last catch. This collection of wearable works of art feature high performance fishing apparel as well as casual lifestyle pieces. It includes tees, shorts, head wear, sportswear, swim, and layering pieces. Customers will also find boating and coastal casual footwear including sandals, boat shoes and casual canvas shoes.

“We are very excited about our new sportfishing lifestyle apparel and footwear collection,” said Dr. Harvey. “Through our diverse partnerships, we have created high-quality, functional, fashionable sportfishing apparel and footwear that fit every season and is designed especially for today’s active lifestyle.”

As with all Guy Harvey apparel and merchandise, a portion of proceeds from sales support scientific research and educational initiatives through the non-profit Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF).

The Guy Harvey story begins on Jamaica’s south coast where a young boy and his parents enjoyed many hours fishing and diving, as well as beach excursions with the entire family. Growing up in this idyllic setting, this boy knew that his life would forever be focused on the ocean and all its offerings.

Today this young boy is the man we know as Guy Harvey—the embodiment of everything having to do with the water. He is a unique blend of artist, conservationist, diver, angler, scientist and explorer, fiercely devoted to his family and his love of the ocean.

A 10th generation Jamaican of English heritage, his passion for marine life started to grow from that tranquil childhood backdrop and he began drawing pictures of the many different fish he observed. From his early inspirations, Guy’s natural gift to recreate the underwater realm has propelled him from Professor of Marine Biology to Wildlife Artist and Photographer.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio 9/6/19 - Rick Back from the UP of Michigan, Club Champion

Rick was back last week in the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan. At the beautiful, Island Resort and Casino, with a new feel and playing a new golf course, Sage Run along with some of the other courses in the UP.


Have a listen:

Now just over a year old, Sage Run is the newest 18-hole course in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Like our other well regarded course, Sweetgrass, the eminent Paul Albanese, ASGCA of Albanese and Lutzke Golf Course Design, designed this course. Intended to compliment Sweetgrass, it provides a unique opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to experience perfection in golf course design on two diverse courses.

About the Course

Sage Run features a large drumlin, which is a long, sloping ridge. It runs throughout the course in different directions, challenging players to interact and move along the course with it. Each hole has a unique character and feel.
Part of a new breed of golf courses

The course takes golfers through pine scrub areas, open areas and partially wooded area. The architect appreciated the expansive site that was full of natural features. It's tough, challenging, but fun to play.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio 8/30/19 - Tips for Buying a Budget Laptop

If money is a concern when looking to purchase a new laptop, consider these factors in this order of importance:

We are talking maybe $250-500.

Have a listen:


Full-HD (1920 x 1080) Screen: Most budget laptops are saddled with low-res, 1366 x 768 displays that allow you to fit a lot of text on the screen at once. If you can find a laptop with a screen that has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, you'll be able to see more of your favorite web pages, emails, social media feeds and documents, without scrolling. You'll also get much sharper images and videos.

SSD or eMMC Memory: Most sub-$500 laptops use mechanical hard drives, but if you can get one with a solid-state drive or eMMC storage, another form of solid-state memory, you'll speed up your  boot and application open times.

Good build quality: If you see a laptop with a soft-touch finish or real aluminum on any of its surfaces ― especially the deck and lid ―that's a sign of good design. However, in this price range, you'll likely have to settle for plastic.

Pick the right CPU: A Core i3 processor is pretty good for this price range. Intel Pentium and Celeron CPUs are serviceable, but not particularly speedy. A Chromebook generally requires less processing power than a Windows machine.

Optical Media: If you need to use CDs or DVDs, we've even found a couple of laptops with DVD drives that won't break the bank.
Your buying decision may come down to whether you need a full-fledged PC, or would prefer the simplicity of a Chromebook.

You'll want a Windows 10-based machine if there are applications  you depend upon, such as Adobe or Microsoft's suites of apps. Yes, Chrome OS machines can run the Android versions of those apps with Google Play emulation, but those apps are often incomplete, and give you a bare minimum when it comes to features.

Chromebooks will be best, though, if you live inside the Chrome browser, and prefer a system that takes care of itself. With a Chromebook, you'll never need antivirus software, and system updates are automatically performed. Chromebooks are also more web-dependent, as offline modes are still not as widely available.
