I have always been a fan of cheap, useful gadgets. Sure, there are Bluetooth speakers on the market that are worth hundreds of dollars, but what about for those who are on a budget? Archeer came out with their A110 slim, portable Bluetooth speaker which has quite a low price for what it offers. Curiously… Read More

The next stop on my gaming gear journey has us looking at a gaming mouse. Now, Kingston is not a brand I usually associate with gaming peripherals, rather, I think of internal components instead. When the Kingston HyperX Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse was offered up for review, I thought I would give it a chance… Read More

I’ve been lucky enough to review several gaming items recently, but one thing I have never upgraded since I purchased them years ago is my gaming headphones. Turtle Beach must have heard this, and quickly offered their Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset and Elite Pro Tactical Audio Controller. I was eager to try out what… Read More

There is no question that I, and probably many of you readers, take a lot of photographs on a cell phone. It is always on you, and the cameras on them are getting better and better. I purchased the iPhone 7 Plus because of the camera, and I was intrigued to find out that there… Read More

I’ve been playing games for years, yet I’ve always used a pair of cheap Dell speakers for my PC. I never thought much of PC speakers for gaming, instead always using headsets, but when Creative offered their Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 gaming speakers to be reviewed, it piqued my curiosity, and I had to try them… Read More

Since getting my Apple Watch, I have used it regularly for months for day to day activities. Now that winter is over, tennis season has started up, and with that, more physical activity that could potentially damage my expensive watch. With the Catalyst Case for the Apple Watch Series 2, I was able to set… Read More

I’m a huge fan of backpacks and bags of all kinds, and one of my favorite bags with a shoulder strap is the Mission Rucksack by Toffee. I loved bringing that on the plane, but I have started using my iPad less and less, and I usually just bring my MacBook Pro on trips now… Read More

Like many households, mornings at the Chapman residence usually start with a trip to the coffee maker. I love my coffee hot, but I always put milk in mine, which cools the coffee to barely tolerable levels. DripJoy has a single serve coffee maker called the JoyBarista and a subscription coffee service with multiple types… Read More

I’ve been a gamer for years, though in the past few months I have taken it more seriously by tweaking my mouse sensitivity, which required me to get a bigger mouse pad. Just a few months after getting one, SubZERO Gaming offered their TYKA Extended soft gaming mouse pad to review, which I happily accepted… Read More

Our household has had several online subscription services over the years. We’ve had Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Prime Reading, and Spotify, and enjoyed the benefits that come along with each. The biggest problem with all of those different services is keeping track of all the logins and payments each month.  Playster is a subscription service… Read More

Since I don’t have an EDC bag that I carry with me every day (unless you consider my purse one) I thought it would be nifty to show what I travel with on a plane. The only thing excluded from this is the backpack, which varies depending on what sort of plane I am on… Read More

Growing up, my parents had a pair of floor standing speakers connected to a reciever with a tape deck and (eventually) CD player. I loved listening to music through those speakers, and when I got a house, I purchased a pair of speakers like theirs. I bought a cheap little amp and Bluetooth adapter, but… Read More

One of the most used review items I have is an iHome alarm clock. Not only do I use it for waking up and checking the time, but I also use it to charge my phone overnight. Just a few months ago, I picked up an Apple Watch and had been looking at charging stations… Read More

In midst of my last headphone review, I upgraded to the iPhone 7, which removed the 3.5 mm port. Sure, they sent an adapter to use and it worked great for finishing the review, but I realized pretty quickly that I needed to start looking into the wireless direction. Thankfully, JLab must have heard my… Read More

I love cats, and fellow Gadgeteer, Dave, has rolled his eyes over my cat stories more times than I can count. The one chore cats bring with them is cleaning the litter box. With two cats and a dog who is interested in what is in the litter box, we have to have the type of… Read More
