I've always had a soft spot for Fugoo speakers. Their rugged build, good sound and incredible battery life won me over. However, the original Fugoo speaker and newer XL version are a bit on the expensive side and anyone on a restrictive budget would be hard-pressed to justify buying a Fugoo speaker no matter how… Read More

2016 marked the beginning of the end for many electronic ports that we have all come to know and love. Change is difficult but this consolidation and optimization of ports will ultimately mean thinner, lighter devices. The most controversial loss was Apple's "brave" iPhone 7/7+ decision to ditch the headphone port that has been with… Read More

I walk and listen to music or podcasts pretty regularly. Because of the heat this summer, I started doing it in a mall about ten minutes from my house, and have kept at it through the rain and cold this fall and winter.

Bluetooth speakers outnumber the grains of sand on the seashore, it seems. Hardly a week goes by that I don't see a review of a new model on some website, especially in what has ecumenically been called "The Gift-Giving Season." /eye roll/ During this period, iClever just released a few new models, and I was… Read More

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… Read More
