After years of trying and failing to force an iPad or Android tablet to work like a laptop when I travel, I have finally found what I think is going to be my perfect travel computer. The 12" MacBook. I ordered a refurbished unit from Amazon last Friday and it was delivered Saturday morning. I've been… Read More

I had to take Jeanne to the hospital this morning for surgery to have her gallbladder removed. I went back and forth last night trying to decide if I wanted to lug my 13" MacBook Pro with me, my Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 or just my phone which is currently the LG G6 which… Read More

Two days ago after Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones, I wrote that I'd be staying up and pre-ordering one at the crack of dawn the next day. As it turned out, I didn't pre-order one because I found out that I would not be able to order an unlocked phone until… Read More

I have been using a Nexus 6P as my main phone since the fall of 2015. It's been a really nice device, but it's time that I hand it down to Jeanne so she can ditch her older than dirt Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I can move to something new like the Samsung Galaxy S8!  I… Read More

Hello, friends! Welcome to Bob's EDC update. I am always on the go for work and I am obsessive about functional design, so I’m constantly tweaking my toolsets to optimize my daily carry. Here’s the go-to list of items that find their way into my daily EDC! (Note: I've included links to all the items on… Read More

This past weekend I attended PAX East 2017 in Boston at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. PAX is a gaming convention held at different venues and times throughout the country. PAX truly is a celebration of all things gaming and loads of fun. In 2004, the creators of the webcomic Penny Arcade decided to create a… Read More

Jeanne and I were parked on the couch enjoying our usual Saturday morning ritual of oatmeal, hot tea, feet up on the coffee table and MacBook Pros on our laps. She was surfing for vacation ideas and I was working on Gadgeteer stuff when the phone rang. The person on the other end had a… Read More

When Julie asked each of us to do an EDC update I thought, “I don’t have that much stuff.” When it came time for me to empty my bag I was surprised how much stuff I could catalog. So, after neatly laying things out and using an orchid/violet item-neutral label, I’m proud to present my daily schlep… Read More

When Julie asked us to create EDC update posts, I initially thought I'd just include the handful of items that I carry on my person at all times.  But then I thought, "Nah.  Not my style.  My style is to go overboard."  Thus behold, all of my current EDC items.  Incidentally, the EDC items I carry… Read More

Once again, it’s The Gadgeteer’s version of “What’s in your wallet?” or in this case, bag. This year, I’ve decided to reverse my trend of loading up a backpack by slimming down—my bag, at least. I’ve put away my overly bulky, but wonderful Everki backpack and have moved to the svelte, leather Waterfield Maverick messenger… Read More

I use many gadgets on a daily basis, but these gadgets are the ones that I couldn't live without.  I use them literally every day and they are an important part of my life.  If I lost one of them (which has happened) I would be like a small child who drops their ice cream… Read More

If you visit The Gadgeteer on a regular basis, you already know that we like to review wallets. As a matter of fact, Andy J. just posted a wallet review yesterday. I personally enjoy using minimalist wallets and thought I'd share my top 5 favorite minimalist wallets with you today.  This one is my current… Read More

Since I don't have an EDC bag that I carry with me every day (unless you consider my purse one) I thought it would be nifty to show what I travel with on a plane. The only thing excluded from this is the backpack, which varies depending on what sort of plane I am on… Read More

A few weeks ago I suggested that everyone on The Gadgeteer team should post an update to their EDC. We've already posted several updates (see related posts links at the bottom of the page) and now it's my turn. Click through to see a list of all the items that I carry with me to… Read More

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. By that definition, I'm insane because I continue to look for ways to turn a tablet or even my smartphone into my primary all in one computer. Why would I even want try that? Because… Read More
