I wish I could wear sunglasses, but I wear normal glasses with Transitions Optical photochromic lenses. That's just a fancy way of saying that the lenses darken when exposed to sunlight. They work fine but don't allow me the ability to change styles as easily as I could if I were able to wear regular [...]

It's going to be in the 90's this weekend in southern Indiana. Ick. My plan is to stay inside with the AC blowing because I don't like to sweat. What do you do if you have to work or play outdoors when it's dangerously warm? Staying hydrated is important, but to keep your exterior cool, [...]

polar-loop2

Last year when I reviewed the Polar Loop activity tracker I found it to be neither a great or horrible fitness tracker. It tracked activity, but the inactivity alerts didn't work at all and the heart rate sensor only worked with a compatible chest strap.  The Polar Loop 2 is their newly updated version which [...]

Smartphones are great for a variety of tasks, but for taking notes, nothing beats good old-fashioned pen and paper. Pen and paper don't need batteries, special styluses, etc. My favorite notebooks are small pocket sized offerings from Field Notes and Moleskine. I even made my own leather pocket notebook holder from leather which I use [...]

acurite-clock-7

We remodeled our basement living room about 5 years ago and continue to decorate it with framed pictures and other items. One thing Jeanne and I could not find was the perfect clock. She wanted something unique and I wanted something more traditional and easy to see. Since we couldn't agree on one, we've settled [...]

kp-sling-9

Keep Pursuing's new KP Sling Bag is a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that launched today for what they are calling an Everyday Adventure bag. I call it a cross between a wallet and a messenger bag because it's designed to be part of your EDC - Every Day Carry. Note: Images can be clicked to view [...]

I used to carry a pocket watch because I like being different and they are more unique than an ordinary wristwatch. No pocket watch that I've owned or seen featured Chillovean lighting effects like these Starling watches though. Steampunk fans will love these limited edition collectible pocket watches that were invented by Frank Cohen and [...]

The 2-in-1 micro USB Mini Fan from Brando is a cool (see what I did there) little fan that is powered via a USB connection. What makes it unique is the fact that you can plug it into a regular sized USB port on your computer, or you can slide out the micro USB connector [...]

This cable was a successfully funded indieGoGo project from last year and is now available through indieGoGo's InDemand service. Let me show you more about it. Note: Images can be [...]

I have a few devices that have to be charged with a USB cable. There's my Fitbit Charge HR, my LG G3 and my Samsung Galaxy S Tab 2 10.5. That makes three devices that I charge on a regular basis. That's nowhere in the same league as the people who can fill up the [...]

I am fascinated with tattoo art and love to watch shows on TV like Ink Master. I have 5 tattoos of my own that I call my battle tattoos. No, one of them isn't a sugar skull, a rose or a Japanese Koi fish, they are actually 5 little black dots on my chest that mark [...]

If you like to enjoy a nice glass of wine in the great outdoors, but feel very unsophisticated using plastic cups or mugs, Parqer wine glasses have been designed especially for you. What are they? They are long-stemmed wine glasses made of glass - duh! But the reason why they are unique is that they [...]

Today Logitech announces their brand transformation which includes a new logo and a brand label called Logi. Their goal is to branch out from mainly offering only PC accessories into [...]

Do you need to buy a new spray nozzle for your garden hose every summer because they are cheaply made and fall apart before the end of the season? The folks at TeleBrands sent me the Mighty Blaster fireman's nozzle and a Pocket Hose to try for a few weeks and so far it's a [...]

LG G4 review

lg-g4-7

Even though I'm the Gadgeteer, I don't upgrade my personal phone every few months like some people might expect. I'm still using the LG G3 that I purchased last August. That means that in a few short weeks that I'll have been using the same phone for an entire year. Are you shocked? That doesn't mean [...]
