QardioArm wireless blood pressure monitor review

Qardio01

For those of us that suffer from hypertension,  keeping track of our blood pressure is important.  An annual check up with the Doctor isn’t enough, so home testing is helpful.  I’ve used several devices to do my daily checks, but most of them are either very inaccurate or they are bulky and not fun to …

Waterfield Designs Staad Attaché review

bag03

I’ve given up on any hope for a paperless future, so I might as well carry all the documents I need for my day job in style along with the electronic devices I need.  For that, the Staad Attaché from Waterfield Designs suits my requirements.  It’s built to accommodate the iPad Pro, but until I win …

Master Lock Bluetooth Smart Padlock review

ML03

I hate keys!  I’ve replaced all of the entry locks at my house and summer cabin with either touchscreen or push button locks.  Up until now, I  didn’t find a viable alternative to the padlocks I have to secure my property around the house or at work.  The Master Lock Bluetooth Smart Padlock has made …

Chamberlain MyQ Garage Universal Smartphone Garage Door Controller review

myq01

Have you ever driven down the road and wondered if you closed the garage door when you left?  Unfortunately, it happens to me a lot, and then I’m in the situation where I can worry about it until I get home or drive back to check.  Sometimes I’m 150 miles away when I think about …

Nyrius Aries Home+ Wireless HD Transmitter review

Aries02

I’m a captive of the cable company.  That is, because of my location I can’t get over the air channels and the local channels are not available on the Internet.  I have given in and subscribe to a package that includes one set-top box, which means only one TV can display the channels we subscribe …

ZeroHour XR charging ip6plus

Several months ago I reviewed the ZeroHour XD Tactical flashlight thinking I would never need another, but the folks at ZeroHour have me rethinking that.  They are running a Kickstarter campaign to develop a smaller and more feature laden flashlight and battery backup. The ZeroHour Relic XR is their latest flashlight which is currently seeking funding through …
