Elizabeth Daugherty

I am a homemaker-writer transplanted to Indiana from Seattle by way of my software engineer husband. Being married to someone in the software industry is like being married to someone in the military. You go where the job sends you. I am immersed in the techie world where I am learning to speak what I call "Geekinese" in order to survive being "a Timex watch in a digital age". Although I scoff at having to use three remote controls to turn on one television, honestly, I have the coolest internet set-up in the neighborhood and secretly covet the latest cool gadget. I would never admit that to my husband.

Death Star Cookie Jar…ruling the galaxy one chocolate chip at a time…

Seriously?  Really?  Has nerdery come to this?  Either that or this is the penultimate gift for that hard-to-buy-for nerd in your life.  If nothing else, it’s one heck of a conversation piece as well. There are those individuals who will think this is, arguably, awesome…like my husband who pointed it out to me.  Just like …

Cooler Master StrikeForce 19 USB 3.0 Laptop Cooler Review

I’m not a gamer.  I don’t even play one on TV.  But I know what happens when your laptop’s processor gets cooked because the fans that come with it either don’t cool the device enough or just wear out.  It’s this Need For Speed, and gamers survive on it as much as they do Skittles …

eGuann “The Engineer” Backpack Review

For your average and sundry backpacks, it makes sense to find one that’s going to hold your gear and not kill your back at the same time.  It also helps to find a backpack with the padded pocket for netbooks, laptops, iPads, Macs, whatever you’re toting these days to keep connected. Cheaply made backpacks will …

Tech Lighting Railtones Wireless Sound System Review

Tech Lighting Railtones Wireless Sound System: I love this product.  Now for a little more clarification.  Ok.  I REALLY love this product. To start with, I was never a big fan of amped up sound systems.   I don’t get it even though my husband claims it would make our HDtv system sound better.  I own …

Ellery Homestyles Sound Asleep Comfort Pillow with Built In Speakers Review

I’m not a big fan of falling asleep with the television on.  I do it a lot, but sometime around…say 2 am, I am awakened by loud screaming from whatever cheesy slasher movie is on or the rattling sounds of war from whatever action film is on or worse yet…the sound of some loud-mouth pitchman …

Lemur Monitors SafeDriver Wireless Vehicle Monitor Review

“When you can’t be with them…” is the tag line for the SafeDriver monitoring device from Lemur Monitors.  Some might say “Or when you can’t trust them,”…either way, the SafeDriver wireless monitoring device is a sweet little “don’t even think about it” mechanism for that new driver in the household. The second in a series …

Mezzi Gold M-Zero Molded “Chuck” Briefcase Review

Anyone watch the NBC television nerd series “Chuck“?  It’s all about this average computer whiz guy nerd who works at a Best Buy-like store.  He’s harmless, nerdy, a little on the wussy side.  One day Chuck receives an encoded email from an old college buddy who is now with the CIA.  The email  embeds the …

Forget the X-Files…the Coolness Factor is the Truth that’s Out There… While most people like to read the Gadgeteer to find out the latest in cool, new electronic gadgetry, it’s important to remember that gadgets aren’t ALWAYS electronic.  Sometimes they just have to be cool.  Something you can’t help but look at.  Something you can’t …
