Ditch the awkward phone-in-a-cup sound hack and stop worrying… Read More

The more I review Focal earphones and headphones, the more impressed I become. Yeah, French speaker maker Focal makes outrageously priced products such as their $4,000 Utopia headphone—rated by many reviewers as the best headphone available today. But kudos to Focal for also offering affordable audio for the rest of us. Case in point: The… Read More

Let's give this smart light switch controller a try.

I love my 12.9" iPad Pro, but, like most folks have mentioned in reviews, I find it a bit difficult to balance when trying to carry it around during use. I've found a case that I like for use around the house or on the road, but it's more a stand, even though it has… Read More

A little over a week ago I switched from Android to iOS by buying an iPhone 7 Plus. While I was at the Verizon store, I had them install a screen protector to protect the screen from scratches, but I didn't get a case to protect the back of the phone because I thought I… Read More

Is it wrong every time I receive a new dashcam to review I hope and pray for something crazy/insane to happen in front of me while driving? I firmly believe in the benefits of dashcams and recording the world zipping by while motoring down the road. You never know when something bad is going to… Read More

Three years ago I reviewed their GuideLights outlet covers plates which I still use today and today I'm going to show you their newer SwitchLight covers. The SnapPower SwitchLight is a cover that turns your… Read More

The popularity of minimalist wallets is driving innovation in this field, providing the people with what they have been craving - the downsizing of the traditional men's and women's wallets of the past. I'll admit that I'm one of those people who has been craving a smaller wallet. This time I'm reviewing the SZNS (pronounced… Read More

Do you think the next logical step in video gaming is mind control? If so, then you'll love the concept of Soap Studio's MIND: The Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice Cerebral Combat Trainer. It's a video game that I was sent to review. It sounded like fun, but it turned out to be pretty… Read More

I have been reviewing charging stands almost since the first day having an Apple Watch. We have seen everything from metal folding stands to exotic wood travel stands to charging gizmos that take over every function on your nightstand but the controller for your electric blanket. Some have been great, others have been - um… Read More
