Moshi12

My iPhone is constantly giving me notifications. I chose to have this feedback, but sometimes, I have to interact with it to turn off a reminder or timer. If I'm using a case, swiping across the face requires pulling the phone out, swiping, then replacing it in the cover. Enter Moshi's Sensecover case. This cover [...]

Jabra_SportROX-1

I have reviewed multiple sport headphones and earbuds over the years. Using wireless streaming via Bluetooth while working out has become much more the norm than the exception. Sport-centric Bluetooth earbuds have become less bulky, better sounding, and much hardier...making the experience more enjoyable. The Sport ROX Wireless are Jabra's latest and greatest "premium wireless earbuds" engineered [...]

Rapoo-E6700-04

The proliferation of gadgets without keyboards has been explosive over the last few years, as have the options for keyboards to increase productivity.  The Surface and Surface Pro series, the numerous Windows, Android and iOS tablets...all of them call for a keyboard to really maximize productivity with these devices.  Rapoo generously sent us a sample [...]

I've not seen the need to get a security camera. I neither live in a huge, obviously-full-of-expensive-things home, nor in one of “those” areas where break-ins are common. But I do have this cute little dog, and when I'm gone, I often wonder just what he's up to - when he's not sleeping in his [...]

iBattz_Optimus_1

There’s an old saying: “You can never be too thin or too rich.” In today’s tech-driven world, I would like to add to that: “You can never have enough backup power.” It’s grammatically clumsy to be sure, but it’s also true. We are more dependent than ever on places to plug in and recharge our [...]

ghostbusters-marshmallowblaster-00

"Funny us going out like this---killed by a 400-foot Marshmallow Man!" Of my favorite movies (and there are many), Ghostbusters has always been on my short list. It has action, ghosts, special effects and best of all, a near constant barrage of quotable one-liners from the top-notch cast. ("Tell 'em about the twinkie.") And while marshmallow-flinging [...]

OKIDOKEYS-01

I hate keys. They get lost, freeze up, fall on the ground, take up space in my pocket, and scratch things like my smartphone. And, now that my car has keyless entry and ignition, I even get annoyed at cars that require me to dig in my pocket and take out the keys. Such a hassle. [...]

dropcase-1

The Dropcam Pro is one of the most compact, easy to use, and polished wireless cameras on the market. Their greatest weakness is being an indoor-only product with no outdoor option. Over the past few years, other manufactures have created aftermarket enclosures to protect the Dropcam from the elements. But many of these products have come [...]

Rapoo-A600-main

I'm always on the lookout for a great portable speaker to extend music from my mobile device or laptop. There are tons of options out there, but many of them look cheap and don't sound so great.  My post today will cover the Rapoo A600, a portable Bluetooth and NFC enabled speaker. Let's take a look! Upon [...]

In case you’ve been living in a cave for the last few years, I have some news for you: there’s this thing called fitness bands (or activity trackers or wearables, depending on what your angle is), and it’s everywhere. Julie has collected the entire set, I believe. She has also offered the team several, so, [...]

reston-sleepace-2

A lot of high end fitness trackers that are designed to keep track of your steps and physical activity can also give you insight on your sleeping habits with the hope of improving them. Everyone could use a better night's sleep right? The only problem with most of these trackers is that you have to wear them on [...]

Nixplay-CloudFrame-8

I have hundreds of photos stored on a computer and external hard drive just sitting there being neglected. :( I've always intended on printing my favorites but never got around to it and now there are so many, the task is overwhelming. I also intended on buying a digital frame to display them; however, I [...]

ScoreBand-1

I am a golfer, at one time I could be called an avid golfer playing two, three or even four times a week. Although golf is a great way to free your mind, with all the tranquility I often find my mind wandering on the course. This leads me to forget how many shots I [...]

Vector cupholder review

Vector - 05

Stylish, clever and practical. If a gadget covers those three adjectives, it’s got a chance for success. And those are the words that first come to mind for the Vector cupholder that I was fortunate to get my hands on. If you want to reduce your worry level about spilling a drink on your keyboard [...]

brother-scanner-920dw-01

A scanner?  What is this, 1996?  Not too long ago I discontinued my home fax landline.  When was the last time I needed to fax, when everyone uses email?  Boy was I wrong.  I'm in the middle of a house remodel, and I'm finding lots of reasons to electronically scan and send documents, not just [...]

Wezel Wallet Easel review

wezel-wallet-00

I like wallets, and I also like items that are multi-functional, which give better value for their price as well as potentially enabling you to carry less stuff around. When Julie asked me if I'd like to try out a Wezel wallet, my first thought was, "A what?" I was immediately intrigued by the name and [...]
