Writing relevant posts for The Gadgeteer could be a full time (and overtime) endeavor. Since this isn't realistic for me, I focus on writing about things that can make a difference in people's lives. I stumbled on this item during a recent lunchtime excursion into the internet, and although it’s not new, I don’t think it’s well-known [...]

week

Saturday nights are always a little bittersweet for me. Bitter because half of the weekend is already over and sweet because half of it is still ahead. In an effort to make your weekend more sweet than bitter, here's a list of everything we've posted on The Gadgeteer this week, just in case you missed something. [...]

zapplight

I'm not sure about where you live, but here in Southern Indiana, it's that time of year when gnats, flies and mosquitoes start making a nuisance of their pesky selves. If you're not a fan of bug spray and fly strips, the ZappLight might be an alternative worth checking out. It's a 9W 920 lumen bulb that [...]

Logitech has unveiled the Logi ZeroTouch, a mount for cars that holds your phone and allows for gesture and voice commands. The ZeroTouch is an air vent or dashboard mounted magnetic holder for Android phones (sorry iPhone!) that works with a command app to provide hands-free control of your phone. Hands-free in that you don't [...]

Braven_BRV_1M_3

I've reviewed my share of Braven speakers and have liked—or really liked—them all. I will soon review the MONSTER (caps mine) Braven BRV-XXL. That’s going to be fun. However, it’s 20 lbs! Not exactly sized for lugging around even though it’s made for outdoor use. Enter the much smaller (and lighter) Braven BRV-1M. At first [...]

tmbr-iphonecase

I'm happy with Android and haven't used an iPhone as my main phone for years. But dang it if these new leather and wood iPhone cases from tmbr. don't make me seriously think about switching back. These cases combine two of my favorite natural materials: wood and leather. They are available for the iPhone 6 [...]

withings-go

I have been a fan of Withings fitness products for a very long time and have been using their Wifi Body Scale every day for the past six years. Their Activité activity-tracking wrist watches are some of the nicest looking fitness trackers on the market right now. But for those of us who are a [...]

kickstarter

Each week I take a quick look at several crowdfunding campaigns that I think look interesting. The projects that caught my eye this week include a minimalist desk that can be used sitting or standing, a "speaker" for your smartphone that doesn't use cables or batteries, and a wearable device holder that lets you go [...]

anymote

How many remotes do you use for your TV and other home theater devices? I am currently using three. I have a remote for my DirecTV, one for my A/V receiver and one for my Roku. In the early days of PDAs and smartphones, most devices included a built-in IR transmitter so the device could [...]

corners4

I prefer Android OS to iOS, but I often flirt with the idea of going back to using an iPhone as my primary phone because iPhones get all the cool add-on accessories like the DxO camera and these cool corner bumper protectors from Corners4. Made in the USA from machined and cast aluminum, these bumpers [...]

google-mode-1

One of the features that sets Android apart from other operating systems is its ability to be customized. Google isn't afraid to allow users to customize their devices to suit their individual needs. I assume Google was thinking along those lines when it created its newest product, Mode. Mode is a line of "snap-and-swap" watch bands [...]

flatev-5

Single-serve coffee systems such as Keurig and Nespresso have become so popular nowadays that it was perhaps only a matter of time until a similar pod-based concept was applied to other foods. Flatev brings that same one-touch convenience to making tortillas. Simply place a pod containing the dough of your choice into the drawer and [...]
