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 …

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 …

Leitner LH270 Wireless Office Headset review

REVIEW – I’m a remote worker – and no, that has nothing to do with my emotional attachment to the people in my office.  Because I am remote 90% of the time, I need effective communications tools.  For years I have been looking for the perfect Bluetooth headset to use with the various communications apps …
