LED technology keeps getting more and more common. As it does, the costs keep going down, and the cycle of innovation and placing them into more and more common items continues. Sansi, through their Loftek brand, has an LED bulb that doesn't need a hub to be "group-able" and controllable from an app on your [...]

I have a warm spot in my heart for Torque Audio. In an industry full of “me too” products, this small headphone company has managed to be different with their customizable t096z earphones and t402v headphones. A couple of months ago, they sent me a pair of the new AMHE303 Mercedes-Benz Limited Edition X Torque [...]

FrostGuard review

We live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas where most of the homes have only two car garages instead of three that you might find elsewhere (and they're tiny too - first world problems). Because our garage is so small, we are forced to park one of our cars in the driveway, which means [...]

When I was a teenager, I had acne and was self-conscience about the way I looked. I remember trying different types of cleansers, lotions, buff puff cleaning pads that exfoliated my skin, drugs perscribed by the dermatologist, and other things. Nothing much helped me back then and I'm so glad I finally grew out of [...]

Bluetooth speakers outnumber the grains of sand on the seashore, it seems. Hardly a week goes by that I don't see a review of a new model on some website, especially in what has ecumenically been called "The Gift-Giving Season." /eye roll/ During this period, iClever just released a few new models, and I was [...]

I'm talking about using your Android or iOS device to take time lapse, long exposure pictures with your DSLR. The Alpine Labs Pulse can do this and more. Let's take a look. [...]

I backed their Kickstarter campaign last year and now they are selling this interesting pen (and pencil) to the general public. Let's take a look. The ēnsso Pen UNO is a pen [...]

One of the most used review items I have is an iHome alarm clock. Not only do I use it for waking up and checking the time, but I also use it to charge my phone overnight. Just a few months ago, I picked up an Apple Watch and had been looking at charging stations [...]

Reviewing products takes a lot of time and effort to test the product, photograph the product and write about the product. But what happens after the review has been posted? Does it break one day later? Do we keep using the product weeks, months and even years after we post the review? That's the questions [...]

I tried the whole standing desk thing for awhile but it didn't take too long for me to realize that I prefer parking my buns in a chair while I'm working. Since I do a LOT of working, I do a LOT of sitting, so I need a comfortable chair. When RapidX asked if I would [...]

Using my Mac Mini as my main computer, I sometimes wish I had extra USB ports and an easily accessible SD card slot since it's tucked away behind the many other things I have on my desk. Luckily I had the chance to review the Satechi aluminum USB 3.0 hub and card reader, which adds [...]

With people documenting their interesting and active lives on their action cameras, it's no surprise that finding ways to turn the camera on themselves is not an uncommon practice and one of those ways is to use a selfie stick. But the SANDMARC Pole Black Edition is not your ordinary selfie stick. The SANDMARC Black [...]

I have been wearing toed socks daily and toed shoes to workout while on travel for years. Truth be told, I love the way toed socks feel in all types of footwear. The minimalistic toed shoes are excellent while living from a suitcase cause they take up much less volume than regular fitness/running shoes while still getting [...]
