Barbienado Boost Charcoal Accelerator Chimney and Barbienado Wand review – two hot products!

REVIEW – Ever since the beginning of the human race, the ability to make fire has been a key ingredient to our survival and progress. Fire (and the heat it produces) makes food safer and better tasting. There’s no better illustration of using fire to cook than the backyard barbecue. It satisfies that primitive desire …

Dreametech T20 cordless vacuum cleaner review – great suction for less money

REVIEW – Any tech company knows they are the “King” of their domain when many other companies duplicate what they’re doing—usually with more affordable options. Apple, Tesla, Dyson—you name it. They set the bar that others follow. Case in point: Dyson re-invented the vacuum cleaner with their innovative cyclone technology and more recently, cordless stick …

Tribit QuietPlus 78 headphone review – sometimes a swivel is all it takes

REVIEW – When I reviewed the Tribit QuietPlus 50 headphone, I said, “At $60, the QuietPlus 50 is the least expensive of four QuietPlus models Tribit offers. Heck, the most expensive—Tribit QuietPlus 78—is only $20 more.” And wouldn’t you know, Tribit sends me the QuietPlus 78 headphone to review. So, is the QuietPlus 78 $20 …

Fugoo 2.0 portable Bluetooth speaker review – a less expensive improvement over the original

REVIEW – Way back in 2014, I was introduced to Fugoo, a new Bluetooth speaker maker named after a Japanese blowfish. The portable Bluetooth speaker market was smaller than it is today—and with a few exceptions, the audio quality was not as good. It’s now 2021 and boy, have things changed. Speakers have gotten cheaper, …

Sonarworks SoundID Personalized Sound Profile Review – your music, your sound, your way

REVIEW – Let’s talk audio. Not the hardware kind (I do many reviews of headphones and speakers), but software. A lot of speakers use what’s called built-in digital signal processing (DSP) to tweak the audio for that particular speaker. Stand-alone software can be used to tweak almost any speaker to the listener’s tastes—that’s the theory, …

Generark HomePower One and SolarPower One review – 1000 watts of worry-free power

REVIEW – In 2019, I reviewed the Jackery 240 Portable Power Station. This incredibly useful power backup has provided our family with multiple recharges for smartphones, tablets, and laptops—especially during frequent and sometimes violent summer storms in Central Florida where we live. However, 240 watts of backup power only gets you so far. Recently, portable …

XP-Pen Artist 24 Pro Drawing Pen Display review – A dream monitor you can draw on

REVIEW – As an art director who lives and breathes Adobe art apps, I’ve come to depend on graphics tablets to get work done. My livelihood depends on them—period. After years of using various Wacom Intuos tablets, I’ve only recently moved to display tablets—starting with the Wacom Cintiq 16 and then the Cintiq 22. For …

Pictar Home Studio Pro Kit review – iPhone photography as simple or as complicated as you want it to be

REVIEW – It’s no secret that smartphone photography is killing the camera business—at least the point-and-shoot cameras. DSLR cameras used by professional and serious amateur photographers will never go away, but companies like Pictar are trying to lure the DSLR fan into smartphone photography by providing apps and gadgets to make the smartphone (in this …

Tribit QuietPlus 50 ANC wireless headphone review – You get what you don’t pay for

  REVIEW – Earlier this year I said that the Tribit StormBox Micro Bluetooth speaker was the audio bargain of the year. Now I get to review a new headphone from Tribit, the affordable QuietPlus 50.

EPOS Adapt 460 Bluetooth in-ear neckband headset review – Come for the talk, stay for the music

REVIEW – It’s always fun to discover that a product you’re reviewing works as well – or even better – at something that is not its intended use. Let me explain: Last year, Demant A/S, a large Danish hearing company, ended a business relationship with the even larger German Sennheiser Communications company—maker of countless audio …

REVIEW – I’ve said it before that one of the more fun pleasures in reviewing products is finding that true bargain—something that is way better than the price would indicate.

Creative Live! Cam Sync 1080P webcam review – you, too can look better!

REVIEW – Of all the things that have become the “new normal” when working from home, attending meetings has probably undergone the biggest change. No longer do we sit in an over-crowded conference room face-to-face munching on donuts and downing coffee. Now, we sit at home staring at a computer screen full of co-workers faces …
