LA Police Gear Men’s Basic Operator Pant review

REVIEW – With all the gear Gadgeteers carry around, where do we carry it all? Some opt for bags, some for slings or belt clip-ons. And some of us just use pockets. (Sorry ladies, I know this is a sore point, but I’m not a clothing designer. I’m just reporting the news.) One of the …

Cleer Audio FLOW II headphones review

REVIEW – We live in a hyper-connected world. Almost everyone we see on the street, for better or worse, is wearing a listening device on their ears.
