SJ400 with included underwater housing.

Time for another review for another action camera. This time this review is for SJCAM's Sports HD DV 1080P camera, the  SJ4000. At first glance, this camera resembles the look and feel similar to a GoPro camera. Many available action cameras on the market have taken a cue in design and form from GoPro cameras and this [...]

Fit 18

With so many headphones nowadays, I'm really surprised that wireless Bluetooth doesn't come standard in every pair of headphones. When I moved away from the typical corded headphones I never looked back. If I had it my way, it would be wireless or nothing.  When I got the opportunity to review the BackBeat FIT headphones from [...]

I must admit. I really like having a bag. Whether a backpack, messenger bag, or sling bag. In high school I used three different backpacks in a school year. I own two large travel skate backpacks, both the same brand and model. I couldn't choose between the color designs so I bought both of them. [...]

I really like the convenience and features of a hands-free Bluetooth headset, however, when I wear them I can't  get passed the stigma of the hands-free headset sticking out of my ear like a small USB thumb drive.  Nevermind the ones with a boom mic  protruding down the side of my face towards my mouth. Don't get [...]

BlackVue Sport 04

With so many "action cameras" around, it's hard to choose which one is best for you. There are various types of action cameras that are used from car racing to sky-diving to mountain biking to skateboarding or any other activity you can think of. You name it and it probably had an action camera involved [...]

When it comes to home security, peace of mind seems to be a factor in the type of security you get. And with several home security companies competing for your business I guess what it really breaks down to is the ease of use,  added options, and the service.  When I received the security system [...]

Pelican_1

If you are familiar with the name Pelican, then you may know that they are known for their cases that are tough, durable, and long-lasting.  I was unaware that Pelican made flashlights, so naturally I was very curious on how good their flashlights could be. I assumed that if they made solid cases that they would [...]

Nessie 12

At first glance, the Nessie by Blue Microphones  looks like an award one might receive at a music award ceremony because of its impressive stature. But it is named after the mythological Loch Ness monster and resembles it with its "S" curve and long neck silhouette. But it begs the question, does it stand up [...]

It's time again for another inventory of our everyday carry items,  or as I loosely refer to them "my survival gear", so I wanted to share them with the outside world. And surprisingly,  I found out that I use each and every item daily in one form or another. And some more than others. I [...]

If you think all camera straps are the same, then think again. Did you think about it? Well, then you know that the camera strap is basically connected to the camera and hangs around your neck. Pretty simple, right?  Well, it can get a little more complicated than you think. When you consider the comfort, the [...]

Since many of us carry around mobile devices such as smartphones, iPhones, handheld games, digital cameras, MP3 player, and the like, having emergency backup power is almost a necessity when it comes to preventing your device  from shutting down when a power outlet is out of reach. Powerstick+ from Ecosol is a portable charger that can keep [...]

Not too long ago I had a few Bluetooth earpieces that I mainly used  while driving. I had a few Motorola ones like the H700, plus I have still been using the Plantronics Voyager that I reviewed some time ago that I really enjoy. However, my problem was often that I didn't have the earpiece [...]

Serbag 1

From the days of high school, through community college, til the end of college and when  I got my first real job after graduating college, I was an avid fan of the backpack. Not too much these days though... At my current job,  a backpack just doesn't feel professional enough for me.  Who am I kidding? [...]

Lorex HD Cam 02

Nowadays, it seems like action POV cameras are used everywhere from TV shows to documentaries to the weekend warrior next door. But are there standards for these candid action cameras or is it just as simple as pressing the record button? For me, it's more than point and shoot. I have previously reviewed two other [...]

With the availability of iPads, netbooks, tablets, and smartphones nowadays, it doesn't leave much room for our older laptops. Everything has become smaller, thinner, lighter, has better battery life and virtually no heat output. However, if you are like me and still have an older laptop or notebook in your arsenal of electronics then you [...]

Topics like recycling, planting trees, carpooling, electric/hybrid cars and more. It seems that there are many possible ways we can make Earth Day [...]

As you run, workout, cycle, snowboard, or do other activities that make you sweat, chances are that you listen to music while you do it. So then you wear your headphones or earbuds to keep yourself entertained. But as the abundance of sweat drips steadily from your sweaty head, your headphones become distorted from the [...]

Ravi Wine Chiller Review

Ravi 1

There are various wines out there, red, white, Chablis, Riesling, etc. but no matter what kind of wine you desire there are those out there that like their wine served at room temperature  and some who prefer it chilled.    However, keeping wine in one's refrigerator can make the wine too cold and not properly [...]
