  • OtterBox uniVERSE - One Case to Rule Them All!

    When you think of phone cases and OtterBox in particular, the first thing that probably comes to mind is "robust" - and that's a great quality to have of course. What I generally don't think of is a case that actually allows you to do other stuff to make your life easier and more productive. That's why I was so excited to hear about the launch of the new OtterBox uniVERSE line at BestBuy!

  • I'm in Love with the Vinturi Vertical Lever Corkscrew!

    If you are going to get dad a corkscrew for Father's Day then you had better get him a damn good one. Luckily the Vinturi Vertical Lever Corkscrew falls into that category and I'm thrilled to have it as part of my permanent bar tools collection now!

  • Score a Touchdown This Year With a Wilson Custom Football

    Tracking Pixel

    Dad deserves something custom that you made just for him this year. It's sort of like how you used to make that macaroni artwork in school, except now this is something that he will REALLY want to keep forever. OK, I kid - but serious, gifts that you make special for someone are always the best and now you can create a custom Wilson football for your dad or really any other person in your life. We recently got a chance to check it out and I personally love it!

  • Spend Less on Speeding Tickets and More On Fun This Summer

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Escort Max 360 for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

    I've been using the Escort Max 360 for a few months now and I love this thing. In the past, my bias had been against radar detectors because frankly most are confusing, noisy, and at worst inaccurate. The thing I love about the Max 360 though is that it has 360 degrees of protection and it uses GPS + your mobile internet connection to alert you about actual situations on the road ahead of you.

  • Advice on Choosing a Bed For More Than Just "Sleeping"

    Beds are used for more than just sleep and so when selecting a new mattress it's important that we think of the other things you'll be doing there besides just "sleeping". 

  • Introducing the VIZIO SmartCast P-Series TV

    For a while there, TV's were just about higher resolution, bigger screens, more contrast - and those are all great things that we now take for granted. But what's exciting to me is when companies make their products BETTER to use. That means not just slapping "smart" on the the chassis but actually doing something to make them more user friendly and more capable. That's what VIZIO is trying to do with their new P-Series line of SmartCast Ultra HD High Dynamic Range Home Theater Display™ TVs.

  • Gladiator GearBox Review - Like a Safe For Your Tools!

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gladiator GarageWorks. All opinions are 100% mine.

    I have been a fan of the Gladiator brand for many years. Sometimes though, it's hard to believe that the same company (Whirlpool) that makes machines designed for the kitchen and laundry room can make some of the toughest, most manly organization products on the market today. Well, actually that's not so surprising when you think about the durability and design that everyone loves from their products in the Kitchenaid, Whirlpool, and Maytag brands. But when it comes to the garage, Gladiator is one of my favorite brands and once you experience it yourself, you'll see why.

  • Building A Custom Bike is a Great Father's Day Present

    How many times have you thought about - or maybe you did - buying a bike for your kids? Those late Christmas Eve nights spent in the cold garage, quietly assembling the bike so they wouldn't hear... only to surprise them on Christmas morning... Now it's your turn! Granted, you won't be able to keep it a surprise but this would make a great opportunity for you to spend some time with the kids and teach them some important mechanical lessons. Heck - as I found out, it's a great opportunity for yourself even, since you'll get a much better appreciation for the different parts of your bike compared to simply buying it from the store.

  • MOTA JETJAT Nano-C Micro Camera Drone Review

    Camera drones are all the rage right now and they are typically hundreds dollars or more and require a license to fly. For those of you that just want to play around though or for those that want to see if this is something you actually want to invest in, the MOTA JETJAT Nano-C is perfect option.

  • Arlo Q Home Camera Review

    I travel a lot and when I do, it's nice to be able to check on the home and watch my dog to see what she's up. There's something comforting about being able to monitor the house when you aren't there that makes it easier to enjoy where you are and what you are doing. 

  • Keeping Your Computer Clean With Webroot Antivirus

    I'm sure you guys use protection, but if you don't there's a high likelihood of catching a virus or having someone steal your identity. It's not a matter of if, but when today, so we decided to take a look at Webroot's SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete. It's a suite of security products designed to not just remove viruses and malware but can also protect your privacy and help you recover from ransomware attacks.

  • Ways To Protect Your Privacy and Prevent Identify Theft

    Even though technology has made stuff a lot easier for us these days, it's also made things that much easier for thieves to wreck havoc on our lives. A few months ago I got a letter in the mail about my "new Verizon account", having received a half dozen or so mobile devices for review I thought nothing of it. Maybe one of the PR companies set me up with a free account I thought. It wasn't till a month later when I got the bill that I realized that this wasn't right. Unfortunately, this is a pretty common thing these days and it isn't the first time I've had something happen either. 

  • I'm Streaming March Madness with my Galaxy S7 from AT&T

    I LOVE mobile tech and when I got the opportunity to be among the first to play with the brand spanking new Galaxy S7, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only did I get the phone itself, but AT&T set it up with their DIRECTV App so I can watch all of my favorite games anywhere I go by streaming them live to my phone. With March Madness in full swing, now I'll never miss a game - no matter where I'm at. Plus, the phone itself is phenomenal combined with AT&T's fast, reliable network that's perfect for streaming the games... but also downloading apps to keep up with scores, sharing photos, and posting smack talking posts on Facebook and Twitter. 

  • Ring - Smart Doorbell Review, Part of the Connected Home at Best Buy

    I get a LOT of packages delivered to my loft and as anyone who has ever lived in an apartment complex knows - it's sometimes difficult to tell if someone knocks on your door or your neighbors. As a result, I often times will run downstairs... only to find out that it was for my neighbor instead. While a traditional doorbell would have probably solved this problem I didn't have the ability to run wires and even if I did, that wasn't really worth the effort. Now though, with Ring I'm able to both tell if someone's at my door - but also find out of it needs to be signed for. Even better is that I can do this remotely via my phone or tablet. 

  • Tips For Making the Most Out of March Madness

As we enter this period, it important to do things the right way! So, let's make the most of out of March Madness, without sacrificing family, work, or your health while doing so.

  • Amazing Luxury Watches For the Traveling Man

    Selecting a watch was once as simple as saying "I want the black one". In fact, there's almost no area where innovation has been as core to the industry as watches and clocks. From the early days when accurate timekeeping was critical to navigating a sailing vessel to the new world to today when your watch isn't even really just a timepiece, this industry is amazing. For those of us who love to travel to extreme and exotic locations though, this means that no matter where you are going there is a watch that is perfect to take with you!

  • GoSafe 520 Dashcam Review

    Like many things, dashcams are more popular overseas - especially in Russia and I'm sure you guys have seen those crazy car accident videos and wondered, "how on earth did they capture that?" The simple answer is that millions of people around the world are starting to install dashcams or dashboard cameras and frankly I think it's just a matter of time before it becomes standard as a feature for new cars. Today though, we're going to talk about the GoSafe 520 dashcam that we were provided for a review during our drive around Vegas last month.

  • New Phones and Devices at Mobile World Congress 2016

    Unfortunately I couldn't be there in person to witness all the amazing unveils in person, but over the past few days there have been an avalanche of new devices announced at Mobile World Congress. If these devices are as exciting as they sound then it's going to be a fantastic year for guys who love gadgets as much as I do! 

  • Introducing the Octa Spider Monkey Tablet Stand

    One of the first reviews I ever did for this site was a product from Octa when they were just starting out. It was a quirky tablet suction cup mount for tablets with a whale's tail shaped kick stand. Since then, the company has grown and expanded but they've maintained their sense of humor and design acumen for creating ingenious solutions that are as fun as they are useful.

  • goTenna Might Be This Year's Must Have Technology Item

    There's a lot of cool stuff coming out right now. Most falls into "fun and entertaining" or "bigger/smaller, faster, prettier" though and there aren't that many things that really stand out as being a game changer and something that everyone should have in their home. goTenna is one such item and I am thrilled to have been chosen to test it out earlier this month.
