I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reached my fingers out to my desktop screen expecting it to react like my phone or iPad. I’ve become so used to touch navigation I expect it everywhere. The MaskTouch, touchscreen accessory for Apple iMac proves that I’m not alone. This product was original named “Zorro Macsk” [...]

Since moving into my house a year ago, I have been blessed with having a central air unit. From this spring on, I'd been itching to upgrade my thermostat from the original, basic model to a smart thermostat. Just before the last heat wave of the summer, I was able to test out the Wiser [...]

Managing cables and dongles is getting easier, but the curse of mobile battery usage and the need for chargers is still with us. Traveling with your full kit for a few days can really escalate that, since you usually have to dig out the chargers that live under your desk, or under/beside your bed. As [...]

How do you easily capture events with your camera that span minutes, hours or even days without having to manually snap each image? You can use your DSLR and special software and even your smartphone with special apps. But if you want to take a time-lapse of something outdoors, you run the risk of weather [...]

Fizzics-FZ101-4

Not so long ago a group of friends and I were discussing how a vacation property we were staying at didn't have an wine aerator. One friend took a jab at another and jokingly said, "that wouldn't help the cheap hooch you drink anyway!" We all laughed and went on to talk of other things, but [...]

The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are a formidable duo. The iPad Pro is fast, has a crisp, bright display, and the response of the Pencil on than display is something to behold. I don't use the pencil much, but I do like to have it with me. If you've not seen it, it is [...]

Invisible zippers. That’s what initially struck me when I first saw the new Waterfield Designs Bolt Backpack. When I unpacked and inspected it, I couldn’t find the zippers. Only when I noticed the leather zipper pulls, did I see how ingenious the disappearing zippers are. It’s really cool. But that’s not the only cool thing [...]

The Nest Cam is one of my all time favorite home security cameras. But the one thing I don't like about them is the long power cord and AC adapter that's required to use them. There has to be a better solution that makes installation easier and nicer looking right? Right! Check out the Wall [...]

Several months ago I reviewed the Milestone Pod, a non-GPS run tracking device. I found it to be a very useful run tracker; not only was it accurate, easy to use, and affordable, but it kept track of how many miles you've ran in your current running shoes. Seasoned runners will tell you shoes need to [...]

Scrubba Weightless wallet review

Scrubba Weightless 1

I know there are many walletaholics here on The Gadgeteer and sadly I'm one of them. After becoming a front pocket carrier I appear to have accumulated  a wallet for different occasions. My EDC is a Saddleback Leather Small and when I need a more minimal wallet I put a subset of my cards into [...]

samsung-galaxy-note7-5

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that things haven't been going so well for Samsung the past week or two. With a recall in effect due to faulty batteries, I'm afraid it's going to give the Samsung Galaxy Note7 a bad wrap. Dave Rees and I have teamed up again to share [...]

Focal Elear headphone review

Focal_Elear_14

In my review of the new Focal Listen headphone, I mentioned that it was at the bottom rung (so to speak) of three new headphones from the French company Focal. Further up the ladder were the Elear and Utopia headphones—both very different headphones and both much, much more expensive. When I was given the chance [...]
