I've been a gamer for years, though in the past few months I have taken it more seriously by tweaking my mouse sensitivity, which required me to get a bigger mouse pad.

When I moved to the larger screen of the 12.9" iPad Pro several months ago, I did so with the full intention of using it as my primary computer. For me, that meant at least trying to embrace the iPad in its purest form by using its software keyboard exclusively. But as a long-time touch… Read More

Pocket survival tools are a great way to be prepared for those emergencies that randomly occur in life. To me, the two key features in a survival tool are functionality and size.

Even though I’ve reviewed a few backpacks to hold my gadgets and stuff, this is the first bonafide suitcase I’ve reviewed. I don’t travel much for my job, but when my wife and I travel, our cheap carryons are nothing but a pain—and kinda embarrassing when seen at an airport. So when the very attractive ec-bc… Read More
