I'm a sucker for a good infomercial. My Lovely Bride is always scolding me when I purchase something wacky online or from TV. Lately, with the numbers of projects being released on crowdfunding sites, I've not had too bad a streak, though. So, imagine my delight when Julie offered the team the Insta-shiatsu massager.

My employer recently offered standing desks to employees. I was a bit skeptical about the supposed health benefits of this trend and after some research I discovered that there was little concrete evidence that a sitting-standing desk provides substantial health benefits. Soon after, The Gadgeteer made an under-the-desk elliptical by Cubii available for review.  I thought it would be [...]

It's steel, has one of those pull-up spouts, and sweats worse than I do in our Southern humidity. So when the opportunity to test the AVEX thermal water bottle with [...]

Fits Socks review

So.  I've never reviewed a pair of socks before and I have to tell you this is the first time doing a review that I've actually been scared. When you do a review, you have to be able to use the item a lot, and then be able to tell the world how it functioned [...]

It's been hard for me to find a pair of earbuds, earphones or headphones that are comfortable to wear for an extended period of time.
