Nokia Lumia Icon Windows Phone 8 smartphone review

on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

I enjoyed reviewing the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet a few weeks ago and since it’s been over a year, I thought it was time that I reviewed another Windows Phone device as well.

Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet review

on Friday, February 28th, 2014

Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch review

on Sunday, January 19th, 2014

Adidas Springblade Running Shoes review

on Sunday, August 4th, 2013

My daily geek uniform includes a pair of sneakers, tennis shoes, athletic shoes, kicks or whatever other name you might call them. I own more pairs of sneakers than “grown up” shoes and am picky when it comes to their style and comfort. A month or so ago when I saw the news about the Read More…

Samsung Galaxy S4 Android smartphone review

on Saturday, July 6th, 2013

This past March when Samsung announced the Galaxy S4, I had been using my Samsung Galaxy S3 for only 6 months. I remember the anticipation while waiting to hear all the details of the new S4. But once the cat was out of the bag, I was a little disappointed because the S4 didn’t seem Read More…
