  • Panasonic Eneloop Batteries Are Ready To Power What's Under Your Tree

    It's Christmas morning and there are boxes of toys (and maybe a few gadgets for yourself too) strewn across the floor. Then, you notice the dreaded phrase "Batteries Not Included". Luckily, Santa delivered some Panasonic Eneloop batteries and your morning is saved!

    In case you haven't noticed, Holiday shopping season is officially here and almost every woman I talk to is looking for great gift ideas for the men in their lives. From husbands to their dads and even sons, this can be a confusing time but I have some great gift ideas that I'd like to share on behalf of Babble Box who sent me some products to share with you guys.

  • Saves Money & Looks Great: WiserAir Smart Thermostat Review

    While most "smart home" gadgets are designed simply to make your life easier or just more fun, some can actually justify the expense by saving you money. That's the case with the smart thermostat category, so I was thrilled to spend some time reviewing the WiserAir smart thermostat from Schneider Electric.

  • Dromida XL FPV 370mm Camera Drone Review

    Drones were once a luxury item reserved only for those who had thousands of dollars to spend... but things are changing and when Dromida offered to send me their latest drone, I was initially disappointed that it was only priced at about $250. At that price it must be terrible right?... I was wrong! It's actually a great drone and the absolutely perfect entry level FPV drone for someone who might not want to invest in the expensive hardware before confirming that they really want to start a potentially expensive new hobby.

  • Facts About Zildjian Cymbals You Might Be Surprised to Learn

    When one thinks about musical instruments, chances are that cymbals aren't going to top the list but when you think about it they are incredibly important to rock and roll as well as other bands. However, when you look deeper you can discover that they and in fact, their most famous maker have a pretty fascinating history.

  • Brinno TLC120 Time Lapse Camera and ART200 Pan Lapse Review

    There's something magical about being able to control the way time unfolds... those clouds that look static suddenly billow and fluff as they float across the sky. Many people have played with time lapse features on their camera phone or even a DSLR at one point or another - myself included - but there are two big challenges. The first is that nobody that I know wants to surrender their phone to a process that can take hours or even days. Second, even if you have a spare phone, chances are it isn't going to do well in the elements such as rain, a heavy dew, and even hot blowing dust and sand... even if the battery was somehow to last long enough. Enter Brinno's TLC-200 camera!

  • How Do You Like My New Shades?

    I've worn glasses for much of my life and it's always been an expensive and confusing process. Depending on which place you go to, the exams are expensive and the glasses are cheap or the other way around. Today though, thanks to online retailers like EyeBuyDirect, things are a little bit easier. To see how things work, the folks at EyeBuyDirect offered to let me order a few pairs of glasses through their website and share my review opinions with you guys.

  • Five Reasons Why Unlocked Phones Are a Great Idea!

    For years we've relied on "the free phone" from your carrier, or a retailer offering to sell you a phone tied to a service plan. For the past two years though, I've had the pleasure of using unlocked phones that I get review units. Typically, these come with no sim card and since it's unlocked I get the ability to insert my own and use it without any issues. Now you can do the same!

  • Chamberlain Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Review

    Smart homes are the future, but most technology that you see today is related to inside the home or connected to security. One area that you don't hear much about is smart garages so when I got the opportunity to have one of my writers share his experience checking out the new Chamberlain Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener we jumped at the opportunity.

  • Be the Tailgate King by Picking the Perfect Generator

    Camping successfully in a remote location requires the use of a convenient source of power to support your lights, fridges, heaters and other essential appliances. While there are several options for powering your crucial devices, a super quiet portable generator happens to be the most appropriate. The reason is it produces 240 V (the voltage your camping appliances need), can easily be moved from one remote place to another and produces the least noise possible. Imagine the peaceful and relaxing environment in a remote camping location. All these can only be realized with the aid of a handy, quiet portable generator. Below is everything you need to know about portable generators

  • Who You Gonna Call? Ghostbusters Plush Stay Puft Man

    Looking for a fun gift for the guys in your life? We think this Stay Puft man is pretty cool as ar the other products that Underground Toys has produced as part of their license with the Ghostbusters movie. While honestly I hate feminized movies that are made simply for the fact of making it a "girl thing", these toys are fun and you can just pretend that it's a throw back to the original series if you want when you buy this as a gift for the man in your life!

  • It Can Wait - You Too Can Pledge to Avoid Distracted Driving

    OK, I'll admit it - I'm addicted to my phone. It's with me wherever I go, it's the first thing I check in the morning when I wake up and I usually fall asleep at night reading stuff on Reddit. However, there's one time when you should absolutely avoid using the phone - while driving. That's why I was excited to join AT&T and the It Can Wait program to take the It Can Wait Pledge and be a part of their 21-Day Challenge.

  • Review: Aleve Direct Therapy - Drug-Free Pain Relief

    I'm not a big fan of using pain relievers and I'm also not a big fan of giving back rubs to my wife who suffers from constant back pain. Thus, when I got the chance to check out Aleve's new Direct Therapy TENS device I jumped at the opportunity.  It operates based on a simple theory - the TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) device stimulates the nerves to block the sensation of pain without using drugs.

  • A Glimpse Of the Future While Exploring The Cox Smart Home

    As you know, I'm a huge fan of smart home technology - well tech in any form for that matter! So when Cox invited me to stop by their event and see some examples of smart home technology powered by their Gigablast Internet at a swanky penthouse apartment 47 floors above San Diego I jumped at the opportunity.

  • Dangerous Places Where You Need To Always Check the Weather

    Travel can be adventure but the trick is figuring out how to manage the risk so that you have a great time but avoid disaster. In some locations, severe weather can occur almost without warning - and other places the risk is omnipresent. Unfortunately, some of the most exciting places to visit can also be the most dangerous. That doesn't mean you should avoid them, simply take precautions and make the most of them while staying safe.

  • Stop By Mall of America and See the Future of Technology in the Home

    I'm sure you've read about how technology is changing homes and maybe even you've lusted after devices I've talked about here. Unfortunately most of us don't have the ability to actually see all these things come together in a way that fully illustrates the potential of today's connected Tech Home. To hep fix that, Best Buy has brought to life the latest technology in a model home that they have set up inside the Mall of America.

  • Picture This: Honor 8 brings Flagship Features with Value Pricing

    Last night I got another chance to work with one of my favorite brands - Honor. They aren't the fastest, most expensive, best you can buy phone brand - but they know who they are... and they understand their customer. Instead of delivery phones that cost nearly $1,000 and lock you into contracts they believe in offering unlocked phones for half (or less than that), while still offering premium features.

  • Ryan Chong Founder of Standard Luggage and Travel Backpack Designer

    As you know, we absolutely love the Travel Backpack from Standard Luggage that we received earlier this month. It's a great addition to our travel gear, but the person behind it is even more interesting. It's not often that we get to talk with the guys who actually create great stuff. After chatting with Ryan a bit through email it became clear that he was more than just a guy who saw a niche in the marketplace. Instead, while he is clearly a business person creating an awesome product he's doing it out of his personal passions, and experience as a seasoned traveler too.

  • Travel Backpack - Perfect Piece of Luggage for Men Who Travel

    I've tested a LOT of luggage over the years and most of it falls into pretty conventional categories and the result ends up simply being an aestetic choice determining which I use. Then there are those "innovators" that seem cool but simply fall flat. When I was approached by Standard Luggage to do a review of their new Travel Backpack during some upcoming trips I was a bit skeptical but I'm usually willing to give something a chance if it fits a need I genuinely am looking to fill.
