Optoma-Blueforce-BE6-26

Bluetooth headphones: There are a ton of them out there, right? Why review another one? Because we're The Gadgeteer, and that's what we do. I'd been on the hunt for a good set of wireless headphones for a while, so I was excited about Julie's offer to review one of the newer products in this [...]

nest-thermostat-8

I love gadgets that can pretty much take care of themselves with little intervention from me. Some gadgets that come to mind that fit this criteria are smart locks like the Kwikset Kevo Smart Dead Bolt and the Nest Learning Thermostat. I've used a smart thermostat for several years, but just recently I got the opportunity [...]

ColonelLittleton_No5WorkBag-ontable

There are not many days that go by that I am not using some piece of Colonel Littleton gear to carry my tech/stuff with me. Day to day I use my Colonel Littleton No. 1943 Navigator Bag, when I travel I take my No. 2 Shave Kit, when I go away on an overnighter I use my No.1 Grip, [...]

OxyLED - 1

Ah, LEDs! The darlings of everyone from makers to artists to environmentalists. Low energy, low heat, long life, high output - what's not to like? So it hasn't surprised me that most of the battery-operated portable lights that have come across my desk in the last few years have used LEDs as a source. Most [...]

kenu-groovies-2

As I have written here at the Gadgeteer before, Kenu designs products that are simple in design, easy-to-use, and products that just work.  You won’t see many buttons, switches, or blinking lights on their products.  If you’ll allow me to make a comparison, I think comparing Kenu products to Apple products may give you an [...]

There are trackers that clip to your clothing, ones that clip to your shoes, wristband style trackers and smartwatches with built-in activity tracking features. But what if you don't want to clip a tracker to your clothes and don't [...]

xtorm-power-bank-free-15000-1

It is getting harder and harder for product manufacturers to make their power bank products stand out from the crowd.  You find these things everywhere, even hanging up in gas station convenience stores.  So Xtorm has come out with some power banks that seek to combine some of the best features of many of the [...]

phiaton-bt460-headphones-1

When listening to music or watching a movie on a device, I crave great sound and comfort out of my headphones. Since these two criteria are often quite subjective, it would seem that what works for one person, may not for another which seems to be the challenge of producing headphones that are within a [...]

BoschLevel - 10

Hanging pictures, wallpaper, and leveling furniture is tough sometimes. For those who live in an older home, it's even worse, because sometimes, there's not really a level or plumb surface to reference and you have to furnish your own. For those jobs, a regular spirit level just doesn't cut it. You need to use a [...]

kenu-airvue-8

I have long been a fan of Kenu products because of their innovative designs, quality products, and great prices.  In fact, I often give the Kenu Airframe product as gifts to friends and family.  So when the $49.95 Kenu Airvue came out, I had great expectations.  It is Kenu's solution to mounting your tablet (up [...]
