Expert Shield 1

I have a Fujifilm X-M1 camera that I purchased not too long ago. I thoroughly enjoy using this camera and intend to take good care of it. I had been thinking about purchasing a screen protector for the LCD screen to protect it from scratches, especially when I wear the camera around my neck and [...]

Logitech x300 3

Pink, pink, PINK!! This is a very pink speaker, indeed. Was that your first impression as it was mine? Anyway, to the point. I've been in the market for an ultra-portable speaker for a while now, but have not been impressed with some of the options out there for the price (it's not a pressing [...]

RAVPower 2

I am always on the hunt for an open outlet to charge my devices. And where are they located? Generally behind some piece of furniture! It's a wonder I haven't become a contortionist by now after all the practice I've had squeezing into narrow spaces to plug in our phones and tablets. Older houses or hotels [...]

skyview-travel-seatback-mount-2

I've seen tray-top stands to hold your mobile devices during flights, but they always seemed a little dangerous to me.  Because they weren't tied down in any way, it seemed that your mobile device could go flying in case of turbulence.  The cradle of the Skyview Seatback Mount for Mobile Devices holds mobile smart phones, tablets, [...]

The iPad mini is small enough that I can take it anywhere I go.  My mini with Retina display fits inside some of my everyday carry bags, but not all of them.  When I'm carrying one of my smaller bags and want to take my mini along, I have to make a decision:  do I [...]

Cyclone-Voyager-01

I'm a recent "convert" from iOS to Android.  After owning first-and second-generation iPads, along with the iPhone 3GS and 4S, I decided to move over to Android, since those devices had more interesting features and naturally integrated with all the Google apps that I used.  With more features coming out in Android OS updates, I've [...]

Several months ago, a friend of mine gave me a challenge.  It was to write a page a day, any format I wanted, as long as I was writing roughly 700 words daily.  While by no means did I ever consistently meet that goal, it did kickstart the writing bug in me again. I primarily [...]
