tmobile-202

Yesterday was my first day testing a phone on T-Mobile's network. I was very encouraged with the speedtest.net results at my house and even in my basement. Considering that I live in the middle of 12 wooded acres with no DSL, cable, etc., it's surprising that they have LTE in my immediate area. But I just happen [...]

tmobile-1

Yesterday I posted about my discovery that T-mobile coverage in my area actually exists now. I was excited to give them a try so I signed up for their free Test Drive plan on Friday and received an iPhone 5s this afternoon.

Last month I published a news post making fun of a special wireless charging receiver for PMA style wireless chargers. I didn't see the point of such a device which seemed to offer no benefits over a regular USB cable because the adapter was so bulky and clunky. Then today Brando sent me news about a similar [...]

dropcam-alarmclock

WiFi cameras like the Dropcam, Spotcam and others are great gadgets that let you keep an eye on your property when you're not able to be there. But what if you want to keep an eye on things without people knowing that you're keeping an eye on things? One way is to turn your Dropcam Pro into [...]

sol-replublic-shadow-6

Although I'm not the resident audiophile on the team, that role goes to Bill Henderson, I do love listening to music and am always looking for headphones that sound great and are comfortable to wear for an extended period of time. I don't think that shouldn't too be much to ask for, but it really [...]

Both of these phones are essentially the same except that the S6 edge has a display with curved edges and the S6 does not.

I'm not a smoker and have never been a smoker, but I do know that it's an extremely unhealthy and risky habit. It's a habit that is very hard to kick without the help of drugs or strong will power. The new fad is to switch from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes also know as [...]

frixion

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=190&v=BZArK7AHlyg A few years ago I reviewed the Pilot FriXion erasable pen. This pen features ink that can easily be "erased" by rubbing the rubber "eraser" over the lines on a page. I have those words in quotes because the ink isn't really erased, it's been made invisible by heat from the friction of rubbing [...]
