In 2004, Newsweek printed that, "According to a study conducted by a Boston marketing firm, the average American burns 55 minutes a day--roughly 12 weeks a year--looking for things they know they own but can't find."  It makes sense that in the last 12 years this number may have changed, given that the average American is more likely [...]

Walabot DIY review

walabot-diy-2

I have been doing home improvement projects for decades now. I lost count years ago, but the total number has to be in the hundreds of all shapes, sizes and effort levels. Many times the construction involved tearing into something with only some idea what I was to find. Well, Walabot promises the DIY can alleviate this problem. The [...]

There is no such thing as a perfect smartphone. I know because I've been trying to find one for longer than I care to remember. There's also no such thing as being 100% happy with the phone you have. At least this is true for me. There's always some feature that I wish my current phone [...]

First of all, it's a universal phone charging dock as long as you don't have a smartphone with a USB Type-C connector. Micro USB, Apple Lightning connector and [...]

Picture this scenario... You've got your expensive smartphone in your hand and then suddenly it slips out and everything switches to slow motion as you watch your phone tumble to the ground. Your heart sinks as you pick it up to inspect the damage. Nightmare right? So how do you prevent drops? Do you use [...]

I'm not a frequent traveler, but we do go on at least two vacations a year which usually involve air travel. Preparing for these trips involves decisions about the gear to take with me and I always have the same dilemma each time: weight and bulk vs. usability. I know vacations are for relaxing, but I'd [...]

After almost two months of spontaneously combusting drama, it's official. Samsung has finally stuck a fork in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and it's been declared dead. My guess is that we'll never see another new Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone model because that name just has too much negativity attached to it. So, what do [...]

As details about Google's new Pixel flagship phones trickled out over the past few days and weeks, I've been consistently saying to friends that I would not (probably) be buying one. I'd already gone through the whole spontaneous purchase experience with the iPhone 7 only to return it a week later due to not loving [...]

Chromebooks laptops are both light weight physically and technically. They are powered by Google's Chrome OS which provides long battery life and ease of use. One thing they didn't offer until recently was access to the Google Play store and the ability to run Android apps. The Acer Chromebook R 11 is one of a [...]

Last week I ordered a cute little Android pin from Dead Zebra. When it arrived, there were a couple of Android stickers also included in the package. I was so excited that I took a picture and shared it with Dave Rees (my Gadgeteer BFF). What he said next made me both laugh and think. [...]

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that things haven't been going so well for Samsung the past week or two. With a recall in effect due to faulty batteries, I'm afraid it's going to give the Samsung Galaxy Note7 a bad wrap. Dave Rees and I have teamed up again to share [...]
