Plantronics .Audio 476 DSP USB Headset Review

When it comes to headsets, I’m really picky.  In 2004 when I started playing on-line co-op games with my younger brothers in-law, I shopped around for various stereo headsets with microphones for gaming.  They were all either too uncomfortable, or had poor outgoing audio.  Eventually, I took drastic measures and made my own, and I’ve …

Logitech Harmony 600 Remote Review

Even though I’ve owned tons of audio/video equipment over the years, I’ve never had a universal remote.  The best ones always were very expensive, and the ones I could afford never seemed to actually have enough buttons to handle all the functions of my various pieces of equipment.  And who could remember how all those …

It was an alright experience but was definitely not the same as flipping through an actual magazine. While the Touch/iPhone’s screen is …

SmallTalk Mini Bluetooth Headset Review

Since Bluetooth was developed way back in 1994, its specifications have changed dramatically, and so have the devices that utilize it. However, in my opinion, the vast majority of people who use mobile phones still prefer not to use Bluetooth headsets, even though their ease is quite straight forward.  People that I’ve spoken too in the past have always …

Kidz Gear (Wired) Headphones for Kids Review

Spring and Summer will be here before we know it (yes, my fingers are crossed in hope of sooner rather than later) and with warmer weather comes an increase in travel.  Whether it is a 12-hour drive south for spring break or a 30 minute drive to a local water park or beach, when the kids are …

Walls of Williamsburg iPad Art Book App Review

I knew the iPad would make a perfect device for eBook reading, newspaper reading, web surfing and game playing. But I didn’t realize that it could also be the perfect device to replace large format coffee table books. You know the books I’m talking about, the ones you see in the bargain book areas near …
