Honeywell Portable Evaporative Cooler review

REVIEW – We just moved to the Houston area, aka “Hotstown”.  Summers here are supposed to be brutal between the heat and humidity.  So far, however, we have had unseasonably mild weather, almost like our former home in Seattle.  But, to misquote Game of Thrones, summer is coming and we will need something like the …

IOGEAR USB-C Travel Dock review

REVIEW – USB-C is a great specification, but in practice, it has been a slow, uphill battle to get peripherals that support it.  Many aftermarket manufacturers (such as external hard disks or network adapters) seem stuck on the old USB-A type connectors and the slower speeds that go along with that standard.  A few, though, are …

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 review

I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but over the years I have become the curator of the family media archive.  I routinely receive old movie reels, slide and photos to digitize and archive.  Many of these items arrive in somewhat less than pristine shape, and it just doesn’t make sense to store damaged images.  …

Peel Super Thin Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus case review

Here’s a new flash: cell phones are expensive.  With the upcoming flagship phones from Samsung, Google, and Apple the upward trend in pricing probably won’t stop.  So with a significant investment in technology that generally lives in your pocket or in a bag, most people develop a powerful motivation to protect that investment.  The Peel …
