Jabra PanaCast panoramic 4K video camera review

Jabra PanaCast monitor mount

REVIEW – I live in Houston and the rest of my team is either in Seattle or Toronto.  Video conferencing is not a luxury, for us it is a way of life.  Video conferencing solutions are either prohibitively expensive for small businesses (think in the thousands of dollars) or are not certified for platforms like …

Aukey Focus Duo 60 Watt Wall Charger Review

REVIEW – Do you have more than 1 device you need to charge simultaneously?  Yeah, dumb question, scratch that.  You want to fast-charge at least two devices at the same time.  Enter the Aukey Focus Duo.  It has 2 ports, sure, but can it get the job done?  Say it along with me: read on …

Aukey Minima 30 Watt Wall Charger Review

REVIEW – Aukey recently updated its Minima 27 watt wall charger charger.  It was a quiet change – in fact, their web site still shows this as a 27 watt product, so perhaps the change was too quiet.  Regardless, the new incarnation – which looks exactly like the old – is out and about.  How …

Aukey Expedition PD Car Charger review

REVIEW – “When it rains, it pours” is not always a bad thing.  I signed up to review a single Aukey Power Delivery solution, and was surprised when they sent me a box with 5 products from their PD lineup.  Challenge accepted – let’s open the umbrella and start at the small end: the Expedition …

Visionect Joan meeting room management device review

REVIEW – If you have more than 1 conference room and more than 1 employee, you’ve most likely run into overbooked meeting space syndrome.  Sure, most corporate calendar systems will help broker online room bookings, but how can you effectively manage the unwashed hoard of conference room squatters?  The Joan system from Visionect takes a …

Kiwi Design Google Nest Hub wall mount review

REVIEW – I’m an enthusiastic investor in the Google ecosphere.  I have a Nest thermostat and Hello doorbell.  Before they were rolled up into the Nest brand, I purchased a Google Max, two Google Assistants, two Google Minis and three Google Home Hubs.  I particularly love the Home Hub (now the Nest Hub) – the …

HyperX QuadCast USB Gaming microphone review

REVIEW – I record training videos in my day job so it is important that my voice is captured under the best possible conditions.  For a while I used a HyperX gaming headset but I had complaints from my audience that the sound was a little “tinny” and that plosives were a real problem.  I …

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 …

New Age Enclosures Raspberry Pi 3 Tinker Case review
