I love my MPOW Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones and because of them, Bluetooth earbuds are all I use. I no longer wish to deal with wired earphones. And I've found that I like having earbuds over other types of headphones (on-ear or over-the-ear) because they are small and portable, don't leak sound so as to… Read More

I've discovered that I have a real affinity for leather wallets. They're flexible, durable, attractive and they smell great. I've also discovered an affinity for those wallets that carry my plastic cards vertically rather than horizontally. The Riveci Olympus - Bowie Pull-up Brown wallet is such a wallet and I was given the opportunity to… Read More

We've needed a new color printer for a while now and I was fairly sure that I would go with a color laser printer because of their dependability and beautifully clear print qualities.

I am on a quest for a great leather wallet. I really enjoy using my Garzini Essenziale Finestra wallet, but are there others out there that I might like better? When the Gadgeteer was offered an Axess leather wallet to review, I volunteered to do so. I chose the Axess "Superior" Extended Vegetable Tanned Leather RFID-blocking… Read More

The pen… Read More

I have recently updated some of the items in my everyday carry bag (purse/gadget bag). In the past, I've carried a small purse because I like to carry as little as possible, but with all the gadgets I have accumulated over time, I needed to upgrade a few years ago to a larger bag. So… Read More

I was introduced to Colonel Littleton products by Dave Rees who has reviewed a few of the men's line of exquisite handcrafted leather bags here on the Gadgeteer.

We live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas where most of the homes have only two car garages instead of three that you might find elsewhere (and they're tiny too - first world problems). Because our garage is so small, we are forced to park one of our cars in the driveway, which means… Read More

As a home educator, sometimes I have to teach while out and about. During such times, I carry my teaching materials with me in a backpack. Some inexpensive backpacks don't last very long while other more expensive backpacks last longer. One thing seems to be true of most of them - they all tend to… Read More

After reviewing the D-link HD WiFi Camera DCS-935L, the Zetta Z16 HD Wide Angle Intelligent Security Camcorder, and the DoorBird Video Doorbell, the overly sensitive motion detectors on the cameras of each device drove me crazy. Many security cameras also have subscription fees to store your recordings which I also find frustrating. I still wanted… Read More

I love all things that glow which stems from my childhood days when I was fascinated with glow in the dark toys and fireflies. Thus, it's not unusual that the Firewater Solar Bottle Lantern caught my eye. This unique 700-milliliter silicone water bottle (6.5" x 4" x 3.5") doubles as a lantern that when turned on… Read More
