Syllable 10

The D900 Black-Bean Bluetooth headset is truly an example of wireless technology. I have been waiting for a pair of headsets like this for a while now so let's see if it was worth the wait. For as long as I can remember I always thought of having a Bluetooth earpiece in each ear, but [...]

Let's face it. We are a battery operated world. With all of our electronic gadgets, like our iPads, smartphones, iPhones, MP3 players, GPS, handheld games, and tablets, they will still have to be plugged into a power source to recharge the battery that powers them. So what happens when you find yourself out camping, or fishing, [...]

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a weekend warrior, chances are that you use something to carry your gear around. And that means everything from a school backpack to a duffle bag, to yes, I've seen it, a grocery bag. But I'm not going to criticize how you carry your stuff, to each their [...]

It wasn't too long ago that many Bluetooth headsets came with the protruding boom mic so that you didn't have to speak loudly and so that the person on the other end of the phone could hear you more clearly as you spoke. However, it was just a look I could not get used to out [...]

Nowadays, when you bring up the words record player people automatically assume the ones with two steel chrome turntables with some DJ, wearing Beats headphones, at a rave spinning EDM and trance music and wearing dark sunglasses in a dark club. But that's not the record player I speak about. This is the classic record player [...]

Typically I like to shoot pictures with natural ambient light since the shadows and lighting are what catch my eye anyway. But there are times when I need to control the light or open up some shadows therefore, using a flash or speedlight is needed. So whether you are a professional or amateur photographer, chances [...]

I remember when POV action cameras first started making their appearance and if you wanted to do any underwater shots, or needed to shoot scenes where your camera could get wet, you had to purchase a waterproof housing since one didn't come with the camera. Today companies like GoPro, SJCAM, BlackVue, etc., have a waterproof housing as [...]

Iron Chest Master review

IronChest_ 2

I don't always have time to hit the gym so the next best thing I can do is workout from home. Since working out at home can become stale and boring, it's nice to have a little variety to activate the muscle confusion factor so I jumped at the chance to review the Iron Chest Master. Let's [...]

Montar  11

I need my phone to be out of my pockets and within reach when I'm in my car. So having a car mount is not only an option, but a necessity. Unless I want my phone to go sliding off my dashboard, or sliding off the passenger seat and then me trying to find it on the car floor and under the seat, a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
