Earlier this week one of my friends from work stopped me at the water dispenser to tell me that he had something to show me. A few minutes later he handed me his copy of the Kitchen Overlord Illustrated Geek Cookbook by Chris-Rachael Oseland. This hard cover cookbook reads like a comic book with recipes [...]

google-nexus-5

I've been looking forward to trying the Google Nexus 6 since it was first announced late last year. Sadly for me, I had to wait several months before this device became available through Verizon.

fitbit-aria-1

Whether you call it the IOT (Internet of Things), being plugged in, or something else, I really enjoy using connected devices. Some people will say, who needs a thermometer that saves your readings or a fitness tracker that tells you how many steps you've walked each day. I say why not! I don't have the world's [...]

canvas-pop-matted-1

Almost five years ago I reviewed a wrapped canvas print from CanvasPop. That review inspired several others resulting in a lot of original framed images on my walls. Recently the people at CanvasPop contacted me to ask if I might like to do a new review. At first I didn't see the point but then [...]

emofix-1

I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of the whole selfie craze. No one wants to see image after image of your goofy looking duck face. But if you absolutely must use your phone to take pictures or videos of yourself, having a remote shutter button is a handy gadget for the selfie [...]
