Inateck-Enclosure-Review-01

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 [...]

Moleskine-Review-10

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.

Casetify-Review-09

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 [...]

Incase-Review-Main

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

BBQ-Dragon-Main

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 [...]

VeryKool-SL5000-Main

 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. [...]

Truffol-Strap-01

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 [...]

UnoTelly-DNS-Review-01

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 [...]

Forte-Impact-Review-01a

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. [...]

Rapoo-3300P-Mouse-02

Personally, I can't get enough peripherals for my desktop or laptop.  I needed a mouse that was small enough to throw into my bag whenever I went out, but nothing clunky.  Since I've reviewed other Rapoo products before, I grabbed the chance to  review the Rapoo 3300p Wireless Optical Mouse.  Let's take a look! Note: Images can [...]

Samson-Meteorite-Mic-iPad

  I enjoy my occasional Skype or Google hangout with friends, and have the idea to one day record some video tutorials. Instead of using the internal microphone of my iMac, I've wanted to try an external microphone.  One look at this Samson Meteorite USB microphone and I couldn't resist the chance to review it. [...]

PowerCube-01

As a power electronics user, I have lots of gadgets, but never enough power plugs for them. At home I usually have cables that run from my power strip to my desk. But when I'm traveling, I'm always scurrying around to find a spare plug and find that I never have enough outlets.  I recently had the chance to [...]
