  • 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.

  • 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! 

  • 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.

  • Over the next few months, I'm going to be talking a bunch about my new bed that Reverie sent me. As you guys know, a bed is pretty important - even if we don't think about it that much. About two years ago I moved to San Diego and left my old bed in Chicago. At the time we were planning to just buy a cheap "bed in a box" foam mattress that would last us a few months till we saved enough to buy the "right one". Unfortunately that day never came and we got to see the dark side of cheap foam mattresses. As of a few days ago though I got a huge upgrade when Reverie installed our new bed with their awesome Dream Supreme Sleep System.

  • 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.

    My wife and I fight over air fresheners in the car. She says that the car stinks (and she's probably right) but I hate those fruity and flowery smells and even worse is a flower clipped to my air vents. Seriously, that's a major buzz kill when guys jump in the car and stare at a pink flower. I came across a company called FreshTechâ„¢ though that offers a solution to both of my problems, so I decided to test it out.

  • The success of any venture is pinned on proper planning and making sure that you have the right equipment to support your talent and passion. That's true of climbing a mountain and it's true for attending a massive show like the Consumer Electronics Show. Each year, more than 170,000 geeks people descend on "Sin City" to see the latest and greatest technology and define the tone for the rest of the year. For me, things were a bit different as I was an ambassador for Huawei using two of their phones - the Nexus 6P and the Huawei Mate 8 - I was able to be on the go from morning till night. I was able to capture the fun and excitement from press conferences in the morning to late night parties and everything in between thanks to the awesome battery life and great cameras on both devices.

  • SanDisk is a brand that I trust with my stuff and over the years I seem to be creating more and more content from more and more devices, so it was exciting to learn about the great new products that SanDisk presented at CES this year. Echoing some of my previous posts about CES, SanDisk is similarly focused on developing solutions for making tech "livable". 

  • I'm back from CES and while the show is over, now it's time to digest a week's worth of technology overload. Along with that decompression ironically is a whole slew of new questions. This time from guys that I hang out in real life. The big question that they are asking - and frankly I'm asking myself is, which phone will I continue using after my ambassador agreement for Huawei is up.

  • At a certain point, technology becomes "good enough" and you stop needing more megapixels, more memory, and faster chips. While I'm sure we'll find some reason to start pushing again, but I feel that technology has gotten to the point where it's stopped being the realm of the geek... and entered a phase where it's truly personal. In a weird way though, it seems that the foreign companies are leading this - especially in the mobile arena. Companies such as Huawei launched some great new products such as women's versions of their smart watch - and also brought the gold version of the Nexus 6P to the US as well.

  • Yesterday at CES I got an interesting opportunity. As part of my ambassadorial duties with Huawei I was invited to visit their booth and demo the new Mate 8, talk with customers, and really get a pretty great experience with the phone that went well beyond just a review kit. This allowed me to better understand the hardware and software - but also the questions that many of you are probably also wanting to ask.

  • At CES this morning, Huawei announced some more great mobile devices, adding on to their existing lineup that includes the Nexus 6P that I'm using this week to cover CES 2016. These new products that were announced include: The Huawei Mate 8, which will be launched globally with the Kirin 950 chipset, a gold version of the Nexus 6P, a collaboration with Swarovski's gemstone business to release two new versions of the Huawei Watch, and finally a partnership with Harman/Kardon who will provide it's cutting-edge Clari-Fi technology to the new M2 10 inch tablet.

  • This isn't the fanciest or most awesome device I've ever played with, but what impressed me about the ZTE Mobley is that it is an alternative spin on something that makes life just that much better. As more and more devices are requiring internet access we're all searching for WiFi hotspots to serve them. Now you can turn your car into one powered by the AT&T network.

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

    I'm somewhat of a phone geek and that's why I LOVE to get my hands on the latest and greatest devices. In the past, it was easy when someone asked me, "What's your favorite phone?" Today though, the reality is there are a ton of great devices out there from a variety of manufacturers. Over the past few weeks though, I've had a chance to explore life with the Nexus 6P, and I really love it. 

  • I always love finding new tools to make my life easier and so when I heard about Clipix recently I was intrigued. You can think about it as "Pinterest meets Evernote" and I found it surprisingly good, though because it is new there weren't that many people using it. As it grows I feel like it has the potential to be a very vibrant community with both more depth of content and a more diverse user base than Pinterest does currently.

  • This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Escort Radar + Laser Detectors for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Honestly this was a lot of fun and I was afraid for a few moments that I was going to end up paying the San Diego police department for the pleasure of reviewing the product instead of making some money myself. However, I'm happy to share that this is an awesome device that while you should never speed - is a good thing to have in your car to help make you more aware of what's going on around you.

  • What do you get that guy who has everything? He already has the latest gadgets, the best clothes, and a collection of Scotch whisky's that rivals the bar down the street. The simple answer is what every guy has thought about at one point or another - prestige in the form of a real legal title. "Doctors" are a dime a dozen these days, but how many Lords, Lairds, and Ladies do you know? Now you can give someone that honor easily and it's totally affordable.

  • Just like the Esquire Mini I wrote about earlier, sometimes it's nice to find devices that cross over between work and play. That's exactly what the Spro 2 does and it's fantastic. Last week, I was able to take it with me on a client meeting and project a report on their wall... and then take it back to the hotel room and watch a movie. So don't worry about who you are going to buy it for... use some of those points you've racked up recently and just buy it for yourself :)

  • There's a lot of great Bluetooth speakers on the market right now at a variety of different price points but it's not often that I find one that I actually want to keep and use. That's how I felt about the Esquire Mini when I received it in a gift bag a few months ago and so I am thrilled to be able to share it with you today. It's pretty darn near the perfect speaker in a lot of ways - looks great, sounds great, compact enough to travel easily, and serves as more than just something to listen to music with.

  • VR is going to be the big gift this year and you are going to see a lot of options ranging from Google's "card board" to units costing hundreds of dollars, but right there in the middle is Merge. At only $99 it's a great option to kick off the VR revolution in your home.
