This is a difficult review to write. Not because the Evoke is frustrating to use, because it can be or that it’s wonderful because it can be that, also. What makes it hard is that the Pure Evoke Flow Radio does so many things, I having to choose what to write about and what to [...]
After reviewing the Eton/Red Cross Aluminator Flashlight , I was happy to receive an Eton/Red Cross ARCFR360R SolarLink Emergency Radio as a gift. Being a preparedness-minded kinda gadgeteer, I was really looking forward to adding this feature-filled gadget to my kit. Note: This is a 2nd opinion on this product. Janet reviewed the ETON Solarlink [...]
I drive a 2006 Mazda 3 5 Door and love it except for two things. The A/C is crappy and so is the stock stereo. I keep toying with the idea of replacing the stereo and these new Sony Xplod in-dash units might make me finally pull the trigger. Sony has introduced 4 different radios [...]

Built for the job / construction site, the Bosch Power Box 360 is one tough radio / sound system. It was first introduced in 2004, but has been updated with two new models that retain the signature roll-cage design. Both have a 5 speaker design with an integrated sub woofer. They have a special weather [...]

This is a cool idea- a solar panel charging ‘handle’ with interchangeable heads. The ‘mini kit’ includes a flashlight, book light, fan, radio/speaker, and a USB charger head. Let’s take a closer look…
If you are a fan of NPR radio programming, you’ll probably want a Radio Bookmark. Do you find yourself getting to your destination in the middle of a program you really want to hear or in the middle of a song that you want to know more about? If you have the Radio Bookmark you [...]

The last iHome clock radio that we reviewed here on The Gadgeteer was the iHome iH5. Since then, I’ve missed out on a lot of cool products from this company, like their latest one – the iHome iP88. The main feature with this clock radio is the dual iPhone / iPod charging docks. The iP88 [...]
Wow, time flies! I reviewed the original Chumby almost two years ago and coming in early November we’ll get a chance to check out a brand new version: the chumby one clock radio. It looks like this new model is focusing more radio features as it has Pandora (and can access other internet radio stations) [...]
Last winter I reviewed the slotMusic player from Sansa. I thought it was an ok player for $20, but the lack of display and CD music cards made it less than desirable. Now we have another option with the slotRadio player. It includes a display and can play preloaded cards with 1000′s of songs as [...]
