Rapoo 3300P Wireless Optical Mouse review

on Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Personally, I can’t get enough peripherals for my desktop or laptop.  I needed a mouse that was small enough to throw into my bag whenever I went out, but nothing clunky.  Since I’ve reviewed other Rapoo products before, I grabbed the chance to  review the Rapoo 3300p Wireless Optical Mouse.  Let’s take a look!

Edifier e25 Luna Eclipse speaker review

on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Among all the Bluetooth and desktop speakers I’ve reviewed, I’ve never tested both form factors in one speaker system. The Edifier e25 Luna Eclipse speakers combine the look and stereo separation of a dedicated desktop speaker with the convenience of Bluetooth. Not only that, they look like nothing else either. They even won the 2014 iFRead More…

Eggtronic HUB IT USB hub review

on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Too many gadgets, too few USB ports, never a charging cord when you need it.  Sound familiar?  The Eggtronic HUB IT attempts to solve this problem with this nifty USB hub with fixed and retractable USB cables.

LG G3 Android smartphone review

on Monday, August 4th, 2014

I’m crazy lucky (although some would use the word spoiled) because I have the opportunity to review any phone that runs on Verizon’s network. I just tell my Verizon contact what I’d like to do a review and they send me a loaner phone for a couple weeks. Yeah, I’m definitely spoiled. So much so that I haven’t reallyRead More…

Office Star Space REVV 86 Series SpaceFlex manager’s chair review

on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014
Posted in: Home, Kitchen, Reviews

Choosing the perfect office chair can be as difficult as choosing the perfect pair of sneakers, jeans, mattress or car. Everyone has their own criteria of what feels good to them. That’s probably why I’ve had the same office chair for the last 20 or more years. Wow, I didn’t even realize I’ve had theRead More…

Spree 1

Spree Fitness Monitor review

on Friday, August 1st, 2014

Exercise has been an important part of my life for the past 17 years. My biggest challenge is staying motivated. I don’t like gyms or running and since I exercise at home using DVD programs (Insanity, Insanity The Asylum, and Tae Bo Get Ripped Advanced), I don’t have anyone to motivate me or hold meRead More…

Belkin Qode Thin Type Keyboard Case for iPad Air review

on Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I’ve reviewed a lot of keyboard cases for iPads and iPad minis in my day, but I’m always game to try another.  I find that some are pretty uncomfortable to type on and some do very well for an undersized keyboard.  Then there’s the Belkin Qode Thin Type Keyboard Case for iPad Air, which isRead More…

RTG R-PAL Personal Area Light review

on Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Posted in: Gear, Outdoor Gear, Reviews

My son just entered Cub Scouts not too long ago, and that got me thinking about camping lights… or just any light.  I grew up with bulky steel flashlights that never lasted long, or fidgety gas Coleman lights that some unlucky adult was constantly pumping up.  How does a modern LED lamp, such as theRead More…

Nyne Bass wireless Bluetooth speaker review

on Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Despite the wonderful – and sometimes jawdropping – audio that manufacturers have been able to extract from small, portable Bluetooth speakers, there is still no substitution for size. Physics rules and if you’re going to get a decent amount of bass from any speaker, you need air movement. The more air, the better bass. Yes,Read More…

RAVPower Dynamo On-the-Go Power Bank review

on Monday, July 28th, 2014

Flashlights are a long-time geek obsession. Recently, we’ve had to add USB chargers, just because so many of our devices charge this way. Imagine combining the two into a single, portable device. Mmmmmm… Geek heaven! Well, that’s what the fine folks at RAVPower have done. The Dynamo On-the-Go Power Bank is a flashlight, a reading light,Read More…

Pong case-1

Pong iPhone case review

on Saturday, July 26th, 2014

When it comes to smart phone cases, it seems you must have an angle to be competitive in the market. Some are light weight, some super stylish, some are mega rugged. Pong cases have found their niche in protecting you from wireless radiation.

tablift 01

Tablift hands-free tablet stand review

on Thursday, July 24th, 2014

I constantly struggle with the tablet vs. laptop decision.  Laptops are great, but tablets are lighter.  But tablets don’t exactly do the hands-free or lap TOP bit very well unless you have some fancy case or stand.  Today let’s take a look at the uniquely-shaped Tablift.

I-MEGO MAZE-1

I-MEGO Maze headphones review

on Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Listening to music is big business. And judging by the amount of advertising I see, you need the proper listening devices, with the right amount of flash and style to be able to get the best out of your listening experience. At least that’s what the high-end headphone market want you to believe. Enter theRead More…

Kenu Airframe+ portable car mount review

on Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014
Posted in: Car Gear, Reviews

Back in March I reviewed the Kenu Airframe portable car mount.  To say I love the device is probably an understatement.  It goes with me everywhere.  Everyone I have shown it to has envied it.  And I have to keep a close watch on my wife for fear that she will steal it.  So whenRead More…

Wicked Lasers Flashtorch flashlight review

on Sunday, July 20th, 2014
Posted in: Outdoor Gear, Reviews

A couple of years ago (2012) I reviewed the Wicked Lasers Torch (see Other Articles to Read at end of post), touted at the time as “the most powerful handheld flashlight in the World”, and at a whopping 4100 lumens, it was wickedly bright, extremely hot, but sadly very utilitarian looking.  The designers at Wicked Lasers have recently introducedRead More…

Fold & Go tablet stand and Smartphone Lounger stand review

on Saturday, July 19th, 2014

  There are many types of stands for tablets. Some are a single angle, built for either reading and movies, or for typing and heads-down work.  Others (such as those from Apple and the kickstands on Microsoft’s Surface) mandate that you cannot change the orientation – it’s horizontal (usually), and that cannot be changed. ButRead More…

MS Keyboard Closeup from End

Microsoft All-in-One Media Keyboard review

By: Greg Carter
on Friday, July 18th, 2014

I decided that I would write this review with the product I’m reviewing, the Microsoft All-in-One Media keyboard, and I’ll tell you right from the start that it is likely the last thing that I’ll type with this keyboard. After several weeks of cramped typing at my desk, I’m really looking forward to getting backRead More…

Zetta Z16 HD Wide Angle Intelligent Security Camcorder review

on Thursday, July 17th, 2014

We live in a gated community and just a few years ago, things were stolen out of our car while it was parked in our driveway in broad daylight (we had forgotten to lock it that day). We never found out who had perpetrated the crime, but I remember wishing I had some kind ofRead More…

Eton Blackout Buddy emergency lighting and LED flashlight review

on Wednesday, July 16th, 2014
Posted in: Gear, Home, Kitchen, Reviews

We live in a high-rise condo building, and the main hallways and stairways are all interior and windowless.  The building does have emergency lighting, as we found out during a recent power outage, but those are only in the public areas of the building.  Most of the rooms in our condo have floor-to-ceiling windows, soRead More…

IK Multimedia iRing motion music controller review

on Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

I don’t consider myself a musician even though I can play a few instruments (barely). However I do consider myself a musical hobbyist because I enjoy doodling around with the ukulele and music apps on my iOS and Android tablets. When the people at IK Multimedia contacted me to ask if I might like toRead More…

Henge Docks Vertical Docking Station for MacBook Pro review

on Sunday, July 13th, 2014

When I decided a few years ago that it was time to ditch my 27″ iMac and down size to a 13″ Macbook Pro, it took a little while to get used to the loss of screen space. However, what I lost in screen space, I gained portability,  so the switch was worth it. I’d been happily workingRead More…

FIREase IncinerGrate review

on Saturday, July 12th, 2014
Posted in: Outdoor Gear, Reviews

We are fortunate to have access to a summer cabin on a lake and near the woods.  Every summer family members descend upon the “camp” and enjoy swimming, sailing, fishing and most importantly for the kids, roasting marshmallows over an open fire.  Because of this, the adults have become somewhat proficient in starting a campfire,Read More…
