Call me the computer mouse queen - I love trying out new mice for all of my devices. It's hard for me to go without one when carrying my laptop around.  Logitech just released the MX Anywhere 2, a wireless mouse that enables you to connect to Windows and Mac via a wireless USB receiver or [...]

Summer here in NY is the perfect time for spending time outdoors. A few weeks ago I participated in The Color Run, which a 5K race that celebrates happiness through throwing tons of color and sparkles on everyone. Since I had the chance to review the Amkov AMK5000 action camera, I brought it to this run to test the capabilities! Note: [...]

I recently bought a new Macbook Pro with Retina display, and have been looking for a dock to use with my widescreen monitor and various peripherals. There are a bunch of thunderbolt docks available by brands such as Belkin, CalDigit and Elgato, but I got the chance to look at the Kanex Thunderbolt 2 Express dock. [...]

With most office jobs these days you tend to sit for many hours on end, which is not great for your body.  Sit-stand desks are becoming very popular, and many of them are becoming affordable for the home and office.  I recently got the chance to review the Winston Sit-Stand Workstation, which comes in a [...]

For my home office I use an iMac, which normally sits at the wrong height for my posture since I place my keyboard directly on the same surface as where my iMac stands.  It would be nice to raise it up a bit, and also add a small USB hub since I only have four [...]

I'm a bit of a computer parts junkie. When a thumb drive or hard drive goes on a great sale, I grab it if it's my ideal price range. This leaves me with extra working parts around that I might not use right away.  Recently I swapped out an SATA hard drive for an SSD [...]

Earlier this month, Moleskine sent an invite over to the gadgeteer crew to check out a showroom event for their Moleskine 2015 collection, located at the NYU store in New York City.  I was lucky enough to be able to attend the event and check out their new line of bags, notebooks, and other accessories. They were [...]

After being an Android phone user for a few years, I decided to come back to the iPhone. I went with the iPhone 6 Plus for its awesome camera, big size, and continuity between OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, along with many other reasons.  I needed a new spiffy case to protect it, but [...]

Wear all the bags!  I've always been a fan of Incase backpacks.  I've used one in the past when I used to travel daily on public transportation, and it kept my tech gear protected.  This past month Incase was kind enough to send me their ICON Pack and City Collection Compact backpack along with some extra goodies [...]

Keyboards are a dime a dozen these days.  The feel of one is very important since I type a lot everyday.  I'm always on the lookout for one to use with my HTPC that I keep at home, so today I'll take a look at the iPazzPort Keyboard. This keyboard includes a touchpad that doubles [...]

I'm always on the lookout for a great portable speaker to extend music from my mobile device or laptop. There are tons of options out there, but many of them look cheap and don't sound so great.  My post today will cover the Rapoo A600, a portable Bluetooth and NFC enabled speaker. Let's take a look! Upon [...]

BBQ Dragon review


To me, nothing is better than freshly grilled meat and veggies at home during the warm (and cold) months. My boyfriend and I struggle to get our barbecue coals hot quickly using various tools, and have to wait well over 45 minutes for the coals to be ready.  I recently got the chance to review the BBQ [...]

 The Verykool SL5000 is an affordable alternative to other Android smartphones in the market right now.  I snapped up this little guy to see how it compares to my Nexus 5 and other Android phones that I've used in the past.  It packs quite a feature set for an unlocked phone at good price, so let's [...]

For my work I carry a bunch of stuff with me including a laptop, iPad, two mobile phones, a notebook, and various thumb drives, a portable drive, and tools.  I always keep an eye out for gear bags that look sturdy, can handle all my gear, any kind of weather and that I can throw around. [...]

Every year since 2011, my boyfriend and I enjoy going to Maker Faire in Queens, NY.  Maker Faire is a large family friendly, creative, tech-influenced event that is held in multiple cities around the US and globally.  We love to see the inventions and projects from hobbyists, hackers, and students. This year, I thought I would post a [...]

The Pebble has been one of the original smart watches to kickstart (pun intended) the smart watch revolution.  I backed the KickStarter campaign and have really enjoyed using it for these last couple of years, but boy, is the plastic wristband less than stylish! Luckily, the watchband can be switched out with various bands of your own [...]

I am what many people would call, a "cord-cutter".  In my living space I don't subscribe to cable, and generally watch my TV online with services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube.  A few years ago I lived in England and loved watching BBC iPlayer, but now that I live back in the US, I [...]

Headphones are the type of thing that are very hard to shop for, since there's so much to look into - sound quality, comfort, and price.  I love a bit of bling in my technology and gadgets, so when I saw these Forte Impact earbuds in rose gold, I couldn't resist to review them! Let's take a look. [...]
