Several weeks ago I posted the first part of this article where I talked about how I would be using a Dell XPS 13 laptop instead of my 13" MacBook Pro with retina display and 13" MacBook Air for a week. To remind folks, I only use Macs at home. There are no Windows PCs to be [...]

For decades, celebrities and Hollywood stars have flocked to Utah in January to see (and be seen) the selection of films featured at the Sundance Film Festival. This year's Festival just ended a few days ago, and as expected, it was crowded with [...]

In an effort to cure a raging case of tech boredom, I've been trying some experiments to see if various gadgets have the ability to replace my 13" Macbook Air as my go to workhorse computer. I recently tried this with a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android tablet to less than a stellar outcome. Now [...]

If you read my gadget diary post from last week, you'll remember that I sent my 3yr old 27" iMac to Powermax to get credit for a future purchase. They've already received the computer, so I'm just waiting for them to complete the review process before they deposit the credit into my account. I don't [...]

Rob (The Gadgeteer's server master) and I have been chatting back and forth about new laptops. His older Macbook wouldn't upgrade to Mountain Lion, so he decided it was time to upgrade.

I am a big fan of laptop/gear bags, and I'm always searching for a bag that not only will protect my equipment from everyday bumps, but also hold everything that I like to carry with me.  I was very happy when Julie was kind enough to assign me the Checkthrough Security Brief by Skooba Design.

I hate lugging around my work laptop because it is bulky and weighs too much. That's why my personal laptop is a 13" Macbook Air. I like thin and light. Those of you that prefer the Windows OS and are interested in an ultra portable computer should consider the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. It's due [...]

Sometimes, however, you get to a location where there just isn't a good place to lay out your gear in any semblance of an order that will enhance your task at hand. Other times, you have so many different pieces of gear to use that there's no way to reach anything, if you don't have some sort of stacking system. Enter Crane Stand company, and their Crane Stand Pro.

  Last month I did a review of the Crimson Frame Case for the iPhone 4. While I thought their aluminum case was too boxy and utilitarian, I loved the iPhone 4 screen protectors that Crimson included with the case. So much so, I wanted to see if their screen protectors for the MacBook Air [...]
