sony-xperia-z3-3

It's been over three years since I've reviewed or even used a Sony smartphone. The last time was back in 2011 when Verizon Wireless sent me the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Android smartphone. In the three years that have passed, Sony has dropped Ericsson from their name, but the company is still making high end [...]

It's the time of year that I always look forward to... No, it's not the gorgeous autumn foliage that I like, it's not Thanksgiving dinner or Black Friday deals either. It's the time when many new smartphones roll out. A few weeks ago it was the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from Apple and now [...]

microsoft-universal-portable-keyboard

Microsoft is offering some pretty cool looking Universal Mobile Keyboards that work with Apple, Android, and Windows smartphones and tablets.  The  cover protects the keyboard when not in use, and opening the cover wakes the keyboard - and closing it sleeps the keyboard, of course.  The cover detaches and has a built-in stand to support [...]

Smile-SelfieRemote-1

Whether you like it or not, the selfie is here to stay.  Capturing yourself in the moment is an extremely popular form of self-expression these days.  Heck, I used to turn my film camera around and point it towards myself and take what I hoped would be a usable shot.  Even some new phones are [...]

ihealth-align

I'm a diabetic who has been able to keep my condition under control through diet and exercise. I was diagnosed 10 years ago and since that time I've become pretty lax on checking my blood sugar levels as regularly as I should. Ok I'll be honest, I'm lucky if I check my blood sugar once [...]

aarp-realpad-android-tablet

This new RealPad from AARP probably isn't a lot different from many other 7.9" Android tablets on the market, but it has one advantage over them.  The fact that AARP is endorsing them and has some of their services set up as apps on the tablet may be enough to give tech-fearful people the confidence to think [...]

Today's buzz is all about the Nexus 6 becoming available for pre-order, but at a sky high price of $649 for the 32GB version and $699 for 64GB, I'm not ready to take that plunge without trying one first. The DROID Turbo by Motorola, announced yesterday by Verizon Wireless and going on sale tomorrow, seems like [...]

ematic-tablet-1

I've been an Apple product user since 1987, and wear that badge with honor. So I've never really used Android more than just flicking around on demo models in stores or using a friend’s device. That's why, when Julie offered this unit to the team, I thought I'd take it for a test spin. What [...]

If you own a smartphone or a tablet it's almost a sure thing that you have smudges and fingerprints on the touchscreen. Most of us rub the device on our pant leg or grab a tissue to polish off the nasty smears. If that way of dealing with this issue is just too mediocre for [...]

I have owned portable computing devices worn on the hip since I got my HP 200LX in 1994.  I remember going to Circuit City the day the first Palm Pilot was released to grab one. Afterwards I drove up to Woodstock to meet a friend and hike up Overlook Mountain in the Catskills after a [...]
