YOORX1

I'm a self-proclaimed health and fitness guru and I try and hit the gym every other day and walk/run a few miles outside as well for no other reason than -  I love to feel good!

Why does it seem like the lightest and thinnest laptops always have the bulkiest chargers? Laptops are fantastic until you have to travel with them and carry all the necessary accessories that go along with them. If your laptop only weighs 2 lbs, but the charger and cable weigh 1-2 lbs, where's the advantage to [...]

It's basically a battery that has an internal spool to hold a charging puck (not provided) in a compact, hockey-puck sized case. I was working at Apple at the [...]

A few months ago I was given the opportunity to review the VAVA Voom Bluetooth speaker. While reviewing it, I found it was a nice speaker, but had a few issues that kept it from reaching greatness.

Since it's very important for the drivers to know you are present, safety reflectors are a part of almost every bike sold.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reached my fingers out to my desktop screen expecting it to react like my phone or iPad. I’ve become so used to touch navigation I expect it everywhere. The MaskTouch, touchscreen accessory for Apple iMac proves that I’m not alone. This product was original named “Zorro Macsk” [...]

Since moving into my house a year ago, I have been blessed with having a central air unit. From this spring on, I'd been itching to upgrade my thermostat from the original, basic model to a smart thermostat. Just before the last heat wave of the summer, I was able to test out the Wiser [...]

Managing cables and dongles is getting easier, but the curse of mobile battery usage and the need for chargers is still with us. Traveling with your full kit for a few days can really escalate that, since you usually have to dig out the chargers that live under your desk, or under/beside your bed. As [...]

Not so long ago a group of friends and I were discussing how a vacation property we were staying at didn't have an wine aerator. One friend took a jab at another and jokingly said, "that wouldn't help the cheap hooch you drink anyway!" We all laughed and went on to talk of other things, but [...]
