tylt_vu-box2

I truly believe charging your devices without having to plug them in is a great feature and the way of the future, that all cellphone/smart device manufactures should embrace. The TYLT VÜ wireless charger was one of my favorite review/tech products of 2014. It's build quality, upright orientation and triple coil design make it the hands [...]

brazen-plus-coffeemaker-13

It seems that everybody I know has a single-cup coffeemaker these days.  Some have espresso machines, some have coffee machines, but everybody seems to have gone the single cup route.  That's great when you only drink a cup or two a day, but it's not so great when you have guests over.  You'll be standing [...]

aluminyze2015-11

Roughly two years ago, I reviewed Aluminyze's photo printing product:  My own digital image printed on sturdy aluminum.  At the time, I chose a glossy finish.  I was given an opportunity to try something different. As before, there are only a few simple steps, but so many more options to choose from.  Now you can [...]

stm-flip-iphone-6-plus-1

When we introduced you to the STM Flip for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, we mentioned that it was like a Smart Case for your iPhone.  Of course, it can't sleep/wake your iPhone, because they don't have those functions, but it will provide extra protection for your phone's screen while it's in your pocket [...]

vicovation-m4

I'm a little obsessed with trying to find the best dashcam for my car. I'm relatively new to this type of gadget and have only reviewed two different units in the past year (see related links below). The latest dashcam that I've been testing is the VicoVation Vico-Marcus 4 dashcam. This one caught my eye because [...]

DSC_0001

I have a strong preference for over-the-ear headphones, rather than earbuds or on-ear models. I also tend to get so involved in whatever I'm listening to that I tend to walk away from the source without disconnecting. This is not good for cables or lighter music sources that are not attached to my person. So, [...]

polar_m400-1

Seems like everyone is getting into the fitness band market these days and as a runner, I find them nice enough but limited as a 'get in shape/get off your butt' tool in many respects. To bridge this gap between fitness and training, the engineers at Polar have created a hybrid device designed to, not only track your [...]

glidergloves-3

I hate winter with a passion. I think snow is pretty to look at from inside a warm house, but I loathe being outdoors when the temperature drops to less than 40 degrees. I usually get my gloves out by the end of October so I can keep my hands warm when I'm going to and from work. Gloves [...]

Thinksound_On1_9

Let me state right up-front that I am not an eco-warrior or anything close. I own 3 chainsaws and don’t hesitate to use them on my 2 acres. That said, I do appreciate companies who use recycled materials where possible. Thinksound is such a company—and then some. They go out of their way to be [...]

great-stuff-roboreel-air-01

Julie asked if I would like to review the RoboReel Air from Great Stuff. Since Annette had been after me to install updated base trim and casing in our kitchen, this seemed like a great opportunity -- both for me and for Annette. I would get to try out a cool new gadget for my [...]

samsung-galaxy-note-edge-2

At the end of November I reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and found it to be one of the nicest Android smartphones to date. Although I liked it very much, I didn't lust after it enough to end up upgrading to it from my LG G3. It seems that the current crop of high end Android [...]

RAVPower-Savior-9000mAh-Battery-1

There are some days during the week that I am constantly on the go and nowhere near an outlet to charge up my devices which makes portable external batteries invaluable. I am excited to see that backup batteries are starting to include built-in micro USB and Lightning cables thus no longer requiring you to bring [...]

harmankardon_soho-1

I am an earbud kind of guy, having tried literally dozens of them from stock earbuds to wireless sport headphones to extravagant, handmade monitors and everything in between. I prefer a small, compact, transportable form-factor. However recently, I have been noticing many folks wearing on-ear headphones and I wondered if I was missing something. After searching awhile, the [...]

Iron Chest Master review

IronChest_ 2

I don't always have time to hit the gym so the next best thing I can do is workout from home. Since working out at home can become stale and boring, it's nice to have a little variety to activate the muscle confusion factor so I jumped at the chance to review the Iron Chest Master. Let's [...]

mpow-petrel-2

I've been searching for a good pair of wireless earbuds for a while now. So far, I've tried two pairs out. They both were OK, but neither were too useful. The first thing that caught my eye with the Mpow Petrel Bluetooth earbuds was the wings used to stabilize the earbuds. My wired Bose headphones [...]
