It's time for another set of updated reviews. This time around, we're updating a selection of garden and outdoors gadgets reviews. It took me awhile to find a handful of outdoor themed reviews. That tells me we need to do more of them! Click through to see a list of the reviews that I’ve updated. [...]

slimfold-softshellwallet_00

I'm still on my own quest for the "perfect" wallet. And although this quest may never really result in actually finding the "perfect" wallet (for me), it sure is fun along the way. Lately, I've been on a kick to find a very minimal, thin, everyday carry wallet. When Julie offered the opportunity to try [...]

iFi_Nano_iDSD-11

I’ve always been a fan of digital audio converters (DAC). They can make good headphones and earphones sound better by bringing out the best they have to offer. Audio listening is only as good as the weakest link, so if you’re wondering whether those expensive headphones can sound as good as advertised, upgrading the DAC [...]

lifecard_10

Our mobile devices need juice, yes? I'm talking power, amps. The answer to that is of course, YES. As a result, portable power solutions have become quite popular. I'd been thinking about going on the hunt for a small battery to top off my iPhone 6 Plus when I travel or can't be near an outlet for [...]

mpow-antelope-bluetooth-headphones-1

Last year I reviewed the MPOW Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones and absolutely loved them. However, I still wonder whether or not there are other affordable Bluetooth in-ear headphones out there that I might like even more. This year the Gadgeteer was offered the MPOW Antelope Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sports In-Ear Headphones to review and I [...]

ToTu 01

The BT-2 Sport from TOTU are wireless in-ear Bluetooth 4.1 headphones with built-in hands-free capability. But a great feature about these headphones is that they are waterproof so heavy sweating from a hard workout, biking, or vigorous running is certainly no problem with these headphones. The BT-2 headphones are lightweight at only 18 grams, or [...]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The box is titled “START HERE ROMANTIC LIFE”. Romance in a box? It it really that simple? Inside the box is a nifty little Bluetooth speaker with a very nice dimmable, changeable, LED light.   The Amazon item title is more specific and quite a bit longer; “Nightlights for Kids, Dimmable Table Lamps, Touch Control LED [...]

ourgroceries-1

I've been using Google Keep for the last year or so to keep track of my weekly grocery shopping list. This app was so much easier to use than my prior method of calling Jeanne to get the list before I'd go to the store each week. Writing items on paper is such a struggle [...]

1 MOS pack plugged in

I'm pretty much a minimalist, grateful for pockets so I don't have to carry a bag every day. But for the last month, I've been using the MOS Charging Backpack. Have I become a convert to having it with me always? It is especially targeted to travelers with multiple devices. Will I use it next [...]

netscout aircheck G2-04

Back in 2015, I moved into my remodeled home and discovered various ethernet issues with the wiring in the house.  Thankfully, I had some help with the Fluke LinkSprinter 300 network tester.  But what if you need some help troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues?  With the Netscout Aircheck G2, now you've got some help. The hardware may look [...]

Logitech's K480 Bluetooth keyboard allows for three devices to be paired with easy switching between them. Is this a useful feature and should this keyboard earn a spot on your desk [...]

sena-watch-stand-1

The Apple Watch Sport doesn't come with a charging case or dock, just a charging cable.  You'll either have to charge your Watch as it lays on a table, putting it at risk of not being seen when you drop something else on the table, or you'll have to purchase a third-party charging stand of [...]

TheDuke - 8

Standing desks have been around for years, but they are making a comeback, due to some recent studies. The studies revolved around the dangers of sitting for prolonged periods. I've recently seen news reports of schools that are replacing traditional desks with standing desks, and the energizing effect they've had on students. So, with my [...]

triby-8

The Invoxia Triby is a connected speaker for the kitchen that can respond to voice commands like Amazon Echo devices by using Amazon's Alexa voice service. It's the first non-Amazon device that has this capability. On paper, Triby looks like a portable version of the Amazon Echo Dot but with more features. But how well [...]
