JBL Boombox portable Bluetooth speaker review

Within the last couple of years, I’ve gotten to review some big (in size and sound) Bluetooth speakers. These massive new generation boomboxes have replaced the old cassette and CD driven monsters from the 80s with better sound and much better ease of use. Factor in weather resistance and you’ve got yourself a winning package. …

Contour Design RollerMouse Red plus ergonomic mouse review

I’ve recently been on a mission to find a new mouse to help alleviate some problems that I’ve been having with my right hand and thumb. After reviewing Contour Design’s Unimouse, they followed up with an offer to review their Rollermouse Red plus which they felt might help me more than their Unimouse. I’ve been …

Wiplabs Slope universal tablet stand review

I’ve had several years of happy tablet use with my venerable Dell Venue 8, but found that when I wasn’t using it, I left it in odd locations – a piano bench, cluttered dresser top, even on the kitchen counter. Wiplabs Slope universal tablet stand has finally given me a place to park my tablet. …

ACGAM AG6X mechanical gaming keyboard review

I’m a touch typist who loves a good, “clicky” keyboard. For a while I’ve been intrigued with the TKL or ten keyless models that only have 61 keys without the number pad attached. This allows for portability, since some laptops just have terrible keyboards (I’m looking at you, 2016 and newer MacBooks). I also game …

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 review

I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but over the years I have become the curator of the family media archive.  I routinely receive old movie reels, slide and photos to digitize and archive.  Many of these items arrive in somewhat less than pristine shape, and it just doesn’t make sense to store damaged images.  …

Anker Zolo Liberty totally wireless earphone review

I’ve reviewed three pairs of what is called “totally wireless earbuds,” so I’m now fairly comfortable with them and know what to expect for the money. The affordable  E’NOD Mini Ring buds are okay, but not great—lacking in bass and lackluster call quality. The much more expensive Nuheara iQbuds also do much more. They have …
