If you've considered giving one a try, you may be interested in the Lotus Sit-Stand Workstation that Fellowes has just announced. This standing desk requires no modification to your existing desk as it just sits on top of it. The Lotus Sit-Stand Workstation [...]

When the Gadgeteer was offered the TouchJet Pond Touchscreen Projector, I volunteered to review it to see if it would do just that.

APC Back-UPS BE850M2 review

Even though my Nexus 6P doesn't have wireless charging, I'm still a huge fan of the oh so convenient method of charging called Qi. If I was shopping for a new monitor AND my phone was Qi capable, I'd be seriously interested in the new AOC P2779VC 27 inch monitor. The P2779VC features a Plane [...]

I knew a co-worker who swore by those misshapen "ergonomic" keyboards.  I never quite understood them until I saw the Kinesis Advantage keyboard about 10 years ago in person.  I was intrigued by the dual concave shape and layout.  I finally got to try the latest version, the Advantage2.

Now Henge Docks has introduced an updated version of the Clique.

One feature I miss on my iPhone is the LED "blinky" that lets you know if you've got a message waiting, missed call, etc.  This was one of my favorite Blackberry features.  What if you could add some light to your computer in the same way?  Today I've got my hands on the Luxafor Flag [...]

Our smartphones are slowly evolving into the ultimate "Swiss Army Knife". They have become an all-in-one device, replacing several of our most useful tools, gadgets, and devices.
