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

    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.

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

    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.

  • I love exploring new apps for my phone, but one of the challenges is finding the right apps from the right developer. Frankly the permissions that some ask for is a bit scary when you don't know if the developer is a hacker sitting in a dark corner of the world waiting to steal your stuff or a reputable developer with thousands of employees worldwide. Of course, you'd recognize a name like Yahoo, Apple, or Google - but what about Baidu. No? Me neither, but they make some great apps to make your smart phone even smarter.

  • Hey, it's the holidays and that means you're probably going to be doing some drinking. No judgement here but that's just a fact for most of us. The question is - will you be able to hold it? Or are you going to be that guy that's all sloppy and drips his beer on the floor because you don't have a pint glass with a cover on it or a flask with a top? Stanley has some great new products this holiday that would make any guy proud to find them under the tree, but they work great as groomsman and host gifts too.

     

    First up, we have The Classic Wide Mouth Flask. While I've had my share of flasks over the years, usually they are pretty boring and rather flimsy because they are essentially designed to be disposable in case they get caught. On the other hand, a flask really does serve a purpose if you are camping - or even just going out to the beach with the guys. 

    Classic Wide Mouth Flask retails for $25.00

    Next up we have the Nesting Steel Happy Hour System. Even in the woods it's important to be able to whip up a margarita and now you can. Though frankly I think this one is a great addition to your private bar out in the garage and I really like the fact that while most cocktail kits just come with a shaker that this one includes a juicer too.

    Nesting Happy Hour System retails for $35.00

    growler

    Stanley is an expert in the field of vacuum steel containers having been manufacturing them since 1913 so it's good to see that the technology is be applied to more than just soup and coffee...

    In San Diego we have no shortage of breweries but sometimes you want to be able to take your favorite brew home to enjoy and that's where this Vacuum Steel Growler comes in handy. As any beer connoisseur will tell you - light is the enemy of beer. So it's interesting to me that many growlers are still essentially just glass jugs. Don't worry though - you'll look like a pro when you go in for your fill-up knowing that your beer is going to be kept cold and protected from the light until it's time to pour.

    Vacuum Steel Growler retails for $50.00.

    Speaking of pouring your beer... the fourth and final part of this great collection is a Vacuum Steel Pint. While it looks like a coffee mug, the same principals that keep coffee hot are going to work here to keep your beer cold. 

    Plus, this means you can take it places where glass containers are prohibited and we think that's a huge win!

    Classic Vacuum Steel Pint Glass retails for $23.00.

     

  • Watches are one of the few fashion statements that men are allowed to wear. They help define our look and make a statement - just like a bracelet. But they are also practical. As I look around today, it's an interesting time to be a man. The question is - what drives this resurgence of watch wearing? Is it simply that the watch is an interesting and practical gadget or is it that this is simply a fashion statement that society allows us guys to make without question?

  • I've been married more than 10 years at this point and I've learned a lot. Heather and I were among the first of our friends to get married and wow things have changed a lot since then. Advertising focuses on how the ring defines the woman or empowers her or shows her your love. Even their websites feature women's rings above men's. So when Heather selected my wedding band it was her choice among very few options. Even if there were options I frankly was never prepared to communicate my desired design the way she was with hers.

  • We haven't really given Toyota as much love on here as we probably should but when I look at where the industry is today we certainly owe a lot to them for the Toyota Production System and it's impact on not just their amazing success - but the auto industry as a whole. What I hadn't understood until my trip to SEMA last week was how the company is actively applying the fundamentals of their system to other businesses and non-profits as diverse as medical clinics and buffalo preserves.

  • We've taken a look at some cool jobs this year - from Alligator Wrestlers to Truck Drivers - but I think at some point all of us have dreamed of being paid to play arcade games. Well,... that's exactly what Zach Feary does at Stern Pinball in Chicago. He's featured in the latest episode of the "1 in one hundred million" web series presented by Kronos.

  • That's right guys! It's that time of year again - when we can pretend that we aren't just shopping for our kids and start playing with toys that we want (to buy for them of course!). Make sure you check out Best Buy's Holiday Shopping event on Saturday, November 7 from 1-5 pm. This is a great opportunity to drop some serious hints to your wives and girlfriends about what gifts guys really want. Plus, they're giving out a free tech gift for the first 100 customers in each store so you'll want to go early. I don't know about you but here's some of the things I'm looking forward to checking out...

  • When I travel it seems like I bring a ton of stuff with me these days. It's changed a lot since the days where I simply traveled with my camera and a notebook but over the past couple years it seems like "laptops" have finally started to be truly useful for traveling. They aren't just miniature computers they also work as a tablet for watching movies on a plane and they are small enough and light enough to slip into my backpack easily. With the launch of Windows 10, it's time to look at getting a new laptop to take advantage of the new software on hardware that is designed for it. That's one reason I'm excited about the Toshiba Radius 12 2-in-1 laptop.

  • I really have to hand it to Adobe - they did a great thing recently with their new pricing model. Not too long ago if you wanted Photoshop you had two options - pay for the super expensive software that was obsolete within a year, or pirate the software. I'm not advocating piracy but let's face it, a lot of people did that. Today though, you can get Photoshop and Lightroom for about $10 per month through the Adobe Creative Photography Plan, only $119.99 per year.

  • It's that time of year again and boy does it suck! While some people enjoy the fall for cooler weather, football, and baseball playoffs - that also means weekends in the yard picking up leaves, sticks and other rubbish. So... like many of you... I'm going to take a break from that yard work. Let's procrastinate a bit and think of some ideas to use your new Rubbermaid® Roughneck™ Wheeled Refuse Trash Can from Home Depot!

  • It's "Game 5" and your team is in the championship - but then you need to run to the store to pick up some more root beer, what are you going to do? Or maybe you're away from home and want to watch your favorite show with your wife together even though it's 11 pm on the East Coast and she's back in California. These are two very real situations where conventional TV really has no answer for us but they can be fixed with Slingbox as I've discovered this week.

    What can't you do with your phone these days? Over the past 10 years, your mobile "phone" has gone from something you talk on to virtually everything that you can imagine. Now we're about to add one more thing - mobile gift cards so you can redeem cash back rewards that you earned through using your Chase Freedom credit card. Think about it - you don't need to worry about heading home to calculate your points – instead, you just redeem them through the new Chase Freedom Mobile App in the store at select merchants including Regal Cinemas, Lowe's, and Best Buy.

  • Winter is coming and that means that you are about to put away your leaf blowers and string trimmers but also prepare your winter gear like snowblowers, chainsaws, and generators. When I was younger I thought it was simply enough to empty the gas from these machines and store them away where it was dry. While that's is still important (unless you use TruFuel!), over the years I've learned that the harsh winter conditions need more preparation than this to ensure that my machines are ready to fire up again in the spring.

  • Tracking Pixel

    I've been fortunate to have avoided breaking my last few phones and that can be mostly credited to my choice to purchase a great case within a few hours of getting a new phone. Years ago I wasn't so smart and it is a decision that still haunts me today. 

Let's Stay In Touch!
