This tiny USB Type-C to HDMI adapter is perfect for travel

I have a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter that I use to connect my 12-inch MacBook to an LG 29″ monitor on my desk. The size of that adapter doesn’t matter to me because it never leaves the desk. But if I carried a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter with me in my gear bag …

Samsung Dex Station review

Ever since the first days of the Palm Pilot PDA, I’ve wanted a small handheld device that would function as my phone, my camera, and my desktop computer. One device to rule them all! Companies like Motorola with their Atrix phone flirted with this concept six years ago, and I’ve even tried turning an Android …

Nyrius Aries Home+ Wireless HD Transmitter review

I’m a captive of the cable company.  That is, because of my location I can’t get over the air channels and the local channels are not available on the Internet.  I have given in and subscribe to a package that includes one set-top box, which means only one TV can display the channels we subscribe …

Cirago Multimedia Center Review

The Cirago CMC1000 Multimedia Center is an enigma. I’ve never heard of the company, or the product. Google found a few online sites that carry it, so I can tell you the 500GB model I am reviewing sells for under $190 online, and its 1TB version goes for about $60 more. It sure seems like …

I really hate it when I get a new gadget to review and find out too late that the necessary cables to hook it up haven’t been included in the package. There’s nothing worse than making a quick trip to Walmart, Best Buy, etc. only to have sticker shock when I see how much they …
