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.

Two years ago Elizabeth posted a short news article about a new Google application called Keep. I read the post and then promptly forgot about it until a few weeks ago I saw my friend Bill Ray adding things to a list on his Samsung Galaxy S5 one day and I asked him about it. He said [...]

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 [...]

duracell-ring

From the world’s stupidest products category comes the Duracell Powermat + Ring. This product is for people who have devices that don't have wireless charging built in and no common sense.

I've often wondered why we can be so sensitive about our choices when it comes to smartphones and tablets. To add [...]

I love the ease and convenience of wireless charging. I have Qi charging pads and stands strategically placed throughout my world. They all get the job done but none are really all that noteworthy or eye catching. All are made of some sort of plastic varying in size, shape, and quality. Until recently that is. [...]

HelloNomad02

There’s a certain balancing act we Gadgeteers play with our cables. You know you do it - you have a short one for when you're using a laptop or a battery charger on a table or desk, a longer one for when you’re in a “normal” room where you can sit near the outlet, and, [...]

cleanstylus

Using a stylus with your Android, iPad and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets is perfect for note taking and drawing. But the one feature lacking in 99% of tablets is that there's no place to store the stylus when you're not using it. So it ends up at the bottom of your bag or is easily lost. [...]
