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.

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 [...]

A few weeks ago, I told you about a portable, wireless TV speaker from Hammacher Schlemmer that lets you bring the sound closer to you without moving the TV.  I did a little more research, and I found that the speaker is made by Serene Innovations, which makes a lot of products for people with [...]

Buffalo wireless travel router 1

Even though WiFi is usually provided for free in hotels here in the United States, it is very common to have a weak signal. Enter the travel router. It will connect to the hotel's internet connection via Ethernet cable (or wirelessly via WiFi) and allow you to connect all your devices to it wirelessly. Travel [...]

Iogear wireless matrix 1

We love our family room/den. It's the place to be in our house probably because it's a really comfortable room and most of our devices are in there: the Wii, the Chromecast, the Xbox, and our computer. One thing in particular that I have been wanting for a while is to be able to play our [...]

Rapoo-3300P-Mouse-02

Personally, I can't get enough peripherals for my desktop or laptop.  I needed a mouse that was small enough to throw into my bag whenever I went out, but nothing clunky.  Since I've reviewed other Rapoo products before, I grabbed the chance to  review the Rapoo 3300p Wireless Optical Mouse.  Let's take a look! Note: Images can [...]

Many people who are integrated into the Apple ecosystem – or BORG, as I like to call it – would never think about buying a router from anyone except Apple, no matter how good or cheap another brand may be. I know, because I paid $200 for an Apple Airport Extreme. I wondered if I [...]

belkin netcam HD+03

I've avoided playing with "home" monitoring cameras because (1) I live in a tiny condo in San Francisco, and (2) my son is 8 now and we're past the baby monitoring stage.  I do have friends and family with small children, so I figured I owed it to them to stay on top of this [...]

MS Keyboard Closeup from End

I decided that I would write this review with the product I’m reviewing, the Microsoft All-in-One Media keyboard, and I’ll tell you right from the start that it is likely the last thing that I’ll type with this keyboard. After several weeks of cramped typing at my desk, I’m really looking forward to getting back [...]

Tablets and smart phones are a great way to carry and share photos; they have replaced those little photo albums called "brag books" that people used to carry in their purses or gear bags.  Many of these mobile devices have cameras to take photos with, but let's face it, the quality of those photos aren't [...]

I realize that I definitely have a thing for nice input devices. I'm always on the lookout for a good keyboard and mouse (especially at work), since I type and sit all day long.  Recently I had the chance to review the Rapoo E9070 Wireless Ultra-slim Keyboard, so I took the chance since I already use [...]
