Dlink-Wifi-Camera-1

I have never had a WiFi security camera, but it has been on my list of things to try. I've read Julie's review of the FLIR FX Security camera and DropCam Pro and came to the conclusion that those seem to be the security cameras to beat. When the D-link HD WiFi Camera was offered [...]

My family and I live on 10 acres in Washington State and while we live about 20 miles of downtown Seattle, our place is pretty rural. Many critters and creatures live on and transit through our trees and fields all year long. This is especially true during the spring, when some years the deer are like [...]

incharge-3

The inCharge is a 3.5 inch long USB charging cable that can be attached to your keyring so it will always be handy when you need it. This cable was a successfully funded indieGoGo project from last year and is now available through indieGoGo's InDemand service. Let me show you more about it. Note: Images can be [...]

Winston-Workstation-01

With most office jobs these days you tend to sit for many hours on end, which is not great for your body.  Sit-stand desks are becoming very popular, and many of them are becoming affordable for the home and office.  I recently got the chance to review the Winston Sit-Stand Workstation, which comes in a [...]

Celsus_Gramo One_11

I can almost guarantee you have never heard of Celsus Sound or its CEO, Jason Lim. Mr. Lim is the person behind NuForce, whose excellent—and affordable—earphones and digital audio converters have been reviewed by The Gadgeteer over the past few years. Last year, NuForce merged with Optoma freeing up Lim to start Celsus, which is [...]

actionproof-bumper-for-apple-watch-9

As with any new product from Apple, a lot of third-party products have hit the market for the Apple Watch.  Because all versions of the Watch are rather expensive, many of these products have been protective equipment for Watch's screen or case.  The Bumper for Apple Watch from Actionproof is the "first bumper / shock [...]

Wpscanner1

When I first heard about this little pen, offered by PenPower, that could scan and translate on the go, I couldn’t wait to get it into my hands. I began thinking of all the possible ways I could use this to copy written word, and/or translate text to be used on my computer or any [...]

EasyAcc 8 port USB-01

It doesn't seem that long ago that I reviewed my first desktop multi-USB charger.  That one had four USB ports, which of course, I quickly filled up.  Today, my desk graduates to 8 USB charging ports. Here's what you get in the box: 1 x EasyAcc 8-Port USB Desktop Charger 1 x DC 12V 5A [...]

mighty-blaster-1

Do you need to buy a new spray nozzle for your garden hose every summer because they are cheaply made and fall apart before the end of the season? The folks at TeleBrands sent me the Mighty Blaster fireman's nozzle and a Pocket Hose to try for a few weeks and so far it's a [...]

LG G4 review

lg-g4-7

Even though I'm the Gadgeteer, I don't upgrade my personal phone every few months like some people might expect. I'm still using the LG G3 that I purchased last August. That means that in a few short weeks that I'll have been using the same phone for an entire year. Are you shocked? That doesn't mean [...]

otium-gear-1

I was a relatively early adopter of smartwatches; I owned the original Pebble smartwatch before upgrading to a Moto 360 last February. Admittedly, I was initially skeptical of their usefulness; however, my smartwatch quickly and seamlessly integrated itself into my daily routine. The ability to dismiss calls, quickly reply to text messages, and receive notifications from [...]

Phiaton_Chor_MS530_5

Last year, I reviewed the Phiaton Bridge MS 500 headphones and found them to be stylish (if you like red), well-made, comfortable, and sound quite good for the price. At a slightly higher price, Phiaton offers a wireless Bluetooth headphone with active noise canceling. The Chord MS 530 is more comfortable, lighter and yet still [...]

Have you ever read one of our older reviews from weeks, months or even years ago and wondered if we are still using the products? Would you like to know more about how our favorite and not so favorite products have stood the test of time? If you answered yes to those questions, these review [...]

satechi-universal-cdmount-1

We Gadgeteers carry our phones everywhere. Even using wearable tech, we still want a phone with us, especially when we're driving. The GPS/Mapping apps and constant connectivity your phone gives you can be the difference between sitting at a confusing intersection, trying to unfold that stupid gas station map and breezing through, confident of your [...]

Marley Get Together-01b

I've been on a personal quest to find the "perfect" Bluetooth speaker.  This time, I get to check out one unit that struck me with handsome good looks from The House of Marley called the Get Together.  Do sound and function match outward appearances? According to their website, The House of Marley "is built on [...]

SamsonGoMicDirect - 2

If you’re using your computer for any sort of sound input, you’ve probably already decided the built-in microphone is useless after more than the occasional snippet. If you’re doing voiceover for video or Skyping/FaceTiming for any kind of podcast or hangout, you need a better mic. Samson Electronics makes a full range of audio products, [...]

REI-minimultitowel_05

In the worlds of rucking, backpacking, hiking and travel, there is an axiom: "Ounces become pounds." This is loosely translated as, "Even small, lightweight items can add up to a lot of extra weight when walking around carrying that weight for miles."  That's one reason why absorbent microfiber towels have become popular among folks who participate in [...]

UrbanArmorAviator - 9

Ah, the quandry of cases. Designers keep making phones and tablets thinner and lighter, and it sometimes seems that case manufacturers seek to make up for this by making cases stiffer, heavier, and bulkier. With my currently active phone, I started out without a case. It was the first phone I didn't immediately entomb in [...]

case logic kontrast-06

On the heels of my recent review of the GOcase Compact GoPro Case, we have the Case Logic Kontrast action camera case.  Yes, THAT Case Logic.  The very name conjures up memories of cassette and CD organizers of my youth.  Let's see what today's Case Logic comes up with. Compatible with up to 2 action cameras, [...]

About two years ago I bought a fixer upper for my family and I. Unfortunately, I can't afford to hire contractors; therefore, the bulk of the "fixer upping" is left to me. I rarely mind doing the work so long as I can listen to music at the same time. In the past,  I would [...]
