  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    I travel a lot and it seems like this fall I've been on the road almost every week for one thing or another. Heck, I was in the Caribbean last month but unfortunately I still had to work. That means bringing with me a bunch of gear including my laptop so I thought I might share some tips with you about how I manage to travel safe - while still working.

    At some point in your driving career you will exceed the speed limit and most of us will get a ticket at least once in our lives. That doesn't make you a bad person, but there are ways you can help prevent that. One is to be more diligent about your speed and the posted limits. The other way is to employ a device such as a radar detector that helps to alert you when you might be in trouble.

    Did you start your holiday shopping yet or are you like the millions of other guys out there that procrastinate till the last moment?

  • We're finally in December and it's time to plan our shopping lists. The folks at Samsung have some great ideas for the good men on our shopping lists! From tablets to watches to VR headsets and ridiculously high resolution TV screens, this has been an amazing year for technology. It's hard for me to pick the one item that I love the most but since I've had a chance to go hands on with the Galaxy Tab S2, lets start there!

  • One of the things that can be frustrating for anyone who loves to travel is that you simply can't take everything with you. That's true for your closet, but it's also true for your data. While cloud services such as DropBox and Google Drive do a great job for files, I personally like to have my own cloud and that's where NETGEAR's ReadyCLOUD comes into play. It essentially offers all the things that my complicated intranet server offered - but with an easy to use interface and minimal configuration complexity.

    Competition is an amazing thing - it forces the players to innovate, improve, and generally get better. While there are winners and losers, competition generally results in a better product for consumers like you and me. Almost 10 years ago a minor player in the personal computer market decided to extend their portable music device and turn it into a cell phone. Suddenly the landscape began to change at lightening speed and we're all better off for it. As things have started to plateau, though, there's a new competitor about to enter the U.S. market - Huawei.

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

    While the world seems obsessed with digital screens today, there was once a time when knobs and dials were chic. Whether we look at those products as being fashionably retro or legitimately practical it almost doesn't matter when the quality, style, and sound produced by the device is spectacular. That's pretty much my review for the Tivoli Audio Model One BT and you could just stop here and visit their website to buy one, or you can continue reading to see how much I love this radio.
