Keyway Designs Safari hybrid iPhone 5/5S case review

I became an iPhone owner just a few weeks ago, after years of disgruntled Android usage.  I’m almost embarrassed to admit that one of the key deciding factors in the switch over was the bevy of peripheral “toys” that can be added to an iPhone, including impressive case options.  I have always had my heart …

Time for pew pew pew

ThinkGeek is currently taking preorders for their Asteroids-inspired Classic Arcade Wristwatch.  Despite looking just like an old school arcade cabinet, complete with mini joystick, a majority of the watch is purely decorative.  Sad trombone.  The face features space rocks of different sizes for the hour and minutes hands and a space ship seconds hand.  The …

Drop and give me 20 (presents)!

As any kid knows, the Christmas stocking is integral to the gift-receiving process, and the larger the stocking means the more presents that could be stuffed inside.  But as an adult, you’re probably in need of something a little bigger, maybe more expandable, and definitely more impressive.  And how about… tactical? The MOLLE Elite Tactical …

MiniSuit BluBoard Bluetooth keyboard for iOS, Kindle, Android, Blackberry review

Several months ago, a friend of mine gave me a challenge.  It was to write a page a day, any format I wanted, as long as I was writing roughly 700 words daily.  While by no means did I ever consistently meet that goal, it did kickstart the writing bug in me again. I primarily …

A very roar-y Christmas

As far as holiday decorations go, I have always been firmly in the anti giant tacky blow-up lawn ornaments camp.  Then I saw this guy and my bah humbug, Grinch-like heart grew three sizes.  This isn’t just 5-foot long pre-lit stegosaurus covered in tinsel. No, it’s an animated stegosaurus, and he’s wearing a santa hat, scarf, …

Ostrich pillows now for the whole family!

What started off as a “concept piece” apparently found a niche somewhere, as the oddly shaped and worn Ostrich pillow has now produced an offspring: Ostrich Pillow Junior.  This pillow is exactly the same as its big daddy, just sized smaller and in two “kid friendly” interior lining colors – red with white polka dots and …

iProp Universal Tablet Stand review

Don’t be fooled by the “i” in the name, the iProp Universal Tablet Stand  (not to be confused with the other iProp iPad floor stand reviewed by Julie) is a universal tablet/smartphone stand, which my Kindle Fire has been nestled in for a few weeks now.  It is advertised to be a self-adjusting stand that reduces neck …

AquaFarm for the lazy green-thumb pet owner

What if the “chores” of maintaining a fishtank and herb garden suddenly took care of themselves, allowing you more time to, well, do just about anything else?  The AquaFarm from Back to the Roots is a closed loop eco-system that does just that!  Your fish does his little fish thing on the bottom and the filter …

A canoe from Wonder Woman’s repertoire

Imagine gliding across the water, peering down into the crystal-clear depths directly below you without anything in your way.  Instead of having to crowd on a glass-bottomed boat, pushing and shoving other people for a better view, what if you were able to recreate that magic in your very own canoe? Oceans aside, I watched …
