Tokkii Tamer earbud holder review

By: Greg Carter
on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

It turns out – who knew?! – that there are many products on the market to clip your earbud wires to your clothes. I haven’t seen any yet that are as sleek and simple as the Tamer from Tokkii. With the Tamer, Tokkii claims to be an all-in-one earbud solution for many aggravating issues that may Read More…

DUNU DN-1000 Hybrid earphones review

on Monday, April 7th, 2014

As the earphone market has grown substantially over the past few years, its technology has mostly split into two camps – dynamic speakers vs armature speakers. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages. DUNU, a Chinese company who started out making earphones for other companies, make and sell both dynamic and armature models. Their model Read More…

Adidas miCoach SMART RUN watch review

on Friday, April 4th, 2014

Winter is nearly over and it is time to get mentally prepared/excited for getting outside and exercising. For me that means tennis and running. As I age, the latter being less appealing than it use to be. Each year I do my best to augment my excitement for pounding pavement with fun and interesting tech, Read More…

iDevices iGrillmini review

on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

The Gadgeteer Kid and I are huge carnivores, as are many of our friends and family members. We barbecue year-round, especially during the summer months. As many of you aficionados of the grill know, cooking everyone’s meal to perfection can be a challenge. Well, the folks at iDevices have recently introduced the iGrillmini, a smaller, Read More…

Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & 2 review

on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

When Apple released the iPad mini with Retina display, some people were disappointed because it was slightly thicker than the original.  That meant it was probable that many accessories for the original wouldn’t work with the newest model.  That’s not the case with the Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & Read More…

Coolstream Duo Bluetooth Receiver review

on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

If you’re going to market another Bluetooth receiver in an already overcrowded market, it would make sense to differentiate yourself with a unique feature.  At Coolstream they have made their Duo receiver different in the way it connects to the playback device by plugging in directly to the 30 pin connector on an iPhone docking station.

Zepp sensor for golf review

on Monday, December 30th, 2013

Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, three great golfers I will never be like. Let’s face it, three golfers most of us will never be like. What makes these golfers or most professional golfers so much better than the rest of us? Why are they on the tour and we are not? I mean besides the Read More…

ZAGGkeys Cover for iPad mini (original) review

on Friday, December 6th, 2013

Because virtual keyboards on tablets always present a problem for some users, there are a multitude of keyboard cases on the market.  The keyboards for the full-sized tablets are undersized and can be difficult for touch-typists to type on because of their non-standard layout.  I was surprised when I heard that manufacturers were introducing keyboard Read More…

MiniSuit BluBoard Bluetooth keyboard for iOS, Kindle, Android, Blackberry review

on Thursday, December 5th, 2013

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 Read More…

Boston Acoustics TVee One Speaker Base review

on Saturday, November 30th, 2013

One thing that’s almost certain is that the quality of the sound from flat screen TV speakers rarely equals the quality of the picture.  It’s understandable, considering the size and location of the speakers.  You can of course invest in a surround-sound system and wire up your TV viewing room, or there is the option Read More…

By: Leah Hallett
on Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Let me start off by saying the Scosche boomBOTTLE is a really nice speaker for cycling, or for wherever you want to carry your music.  This speaker has high quality construction, great sound, durable rugged exterior, splash proof design, and it fits in most bicycle water bottle cages and cupholders.  If you frequently participate in outdoor activities Read More…

Panasonic KX-TG9541 Cordless Phone with Link-to-Cell review

on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Who reading this doesn’t have a cell/smart phone? With mobile technology today, I would venture to guess a lot of our readers have done away with an old-fashioned line (landline or VOIP) in favor of cellular service. But, what if you have both a cell phone and a line service, or what if you just Read More…

Kitsound Hive Wireless Speaker review

on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Portable music has been a hit, especially  since Sony first developed their Walkman players and then Apple introduced their iPods.  But usually these portable players require wired headphones for you to enjoy your music, or you had to plug them in to huge speakers to fill the room with music.  Kitsound‘s Hive Wireless Speaker solves the Read More…

Got your Bluetooth speaker yet?  Here’s another entry in the field, and it’s from Sherwood.  The EXM-50 does everything you’d expect from a Bluetooth speaker, plus it has apps for iOS and Android to control the device and is claimed to be resistant to spraying water.  Being new to the US market, we get to play Read More…

It’s the UE MINI BOOM and it’s made by Ultimate Ears (owned by Logitech), who make some of the best in-ear headphones on the market. When a notable headphone Read More…

on Thursday, November 14th, 2013

This post brought to you by Advanced American Telephones. All opinions are 100% mine. Although people seem to be moving away from landline phones these days, there are still millions of people that haven't ditched their analog phones in favor of only using a cell phone.

Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue wireless speaker review

By: Ryan Chapman
on Thursday, November 14th, 2013

I have the luxury of living in a small condo, which means I have little room for a nice sound system. What that means is that I need a shelf-sized speaker that provides high-quality sound. It also has to be within my price range. The Boston Acoustics MC100 Blue seemed to offer that and more, Read More…

Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus review

on Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Graphical artists and doodling enthusiasts who use an iPad and a stylus, may want to consider upgrading their stylus to one that offers a pressure sensitive tip. Wacom, who is well known for their digitizing tablets and pens, now offers the Intuos Creative Stylus. This pressure sensitive capacitive stylus offers 2048 levels of pressure, which Read More…

WalletTrackR review

on Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

I’ve come to the conclusion that there is an epidemic of people losing phones/wallets as evidenced by the number of tracking devices available on the market.  I recently received the TrackR by Phone Halo to check out, and my preliminary impression was very positive.  Here was something that I could stick in my wallet or hang on Read More…

Divoom Bluetune-Bean Bluetooth speaker review

on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

We like our tunes!  And as much as we like our personal earbuds, sometimes we don’t just want to keep the music to ourselves, we want to jam out loud or share it with the folks around us.  The Divoom Bluetune-Bean Bluetooth portable speaker and speakerphone does this in a fun, compact shape and size.  Read More…

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System review

on Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

A couple months ago I posted a review of the Cambridge Audio Minx Go and concluded at that time that it was my current favorite small speaker. Then I was given the opportunity to try the Minx Go’s bigger brother, the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System. At twice the size and four times the Read More…

Braven BRV-1 Bluetooth Speaker review

on Monday, October 28th, 2013

In my search for awesome portable speakers, I have had some luck as of late.  I have done a few reviews here on The Gadgeteer for portable Bluetooth speakers that are solid choices for the audiophile looking to untether take his or her tunes from the confines of the living room.  But until now, I Read More…

PROTAG review

on Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Recently my wife lost her purse, and it got me thinking if there was a device that would alert her when she and her purse were separated.  Not too long afterward, I came upon the PROTAG by Innova, a device that works with a smartphone to keep track of your personal items and sends alerts when Read More…

iwerkz Universal Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard review

on Saturday, October 12th, 2013

I have never been considered a workaholic, at least not when it comes to my day job. But when it comes to The Gadgeteer, I can’t unplug and to be honest, I don’t want to. I enjoy working on reviews and answering emails, even while I’m on vacation. This year we went to Sanibel Island Florida Read More…

Minisuit Nexus 7 (2013) Keyboard Case review

on Monday, October 7th, 2013

During my vacation planning this year, I decided that I was going to leave my 13in Macbook Air laptop at home and only take my Nexus 7 2013 Android tablet. I figured it was a good way to keep me from wanting to do real work while I was supposed to be relaxing on Sanibel Read More…
