  • Wireless Charging Solutions From RapidX Perfect For Travel

    As we begin to get back into the routine of traveling again, I'm constantly looking for ways to improve on what it was like a year ago before we all had to stop.

Now however, I'm absolutely obsessed with wireless chargers and how far the technology has come. RapidX sent over a few items for us to test out and we're even giving some of them away, so make sure to read down to the end of the article to see how you can win one of the items featured in this roundup.

  • XR1 Is A Great Option For Game Streaming Or Simply Capturing Old Family Videos To Your PC

    As more people watch professional video game streamers on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, it's only logical to be able to want to do it themselves. The unfortunate reality though is that most of us will never have both the skill and personality to compel someone to watch and so I'm forced to find another justification for a device like the EVGA XR1 Video Capture Device. It might be just the excuse that makes you able to justify the purchase though!

  • AfterShokz Introduces OpenComm Their First Bluetooth Headset With A Microphone

    About five years ago I first met with the folks at AfterShokz at CES. In a sea of gadgets and gizmos they stood out then, and for some reason few have followed in their footsteps by developing bone conduction stereo headphones since that time. One of the important segments that they were not competing in though was a headset with an attached microphone. While call center workers have experienced the frustration of wearing a headset for hours at a time... it was 2020 that showed millions of people around the world how frustrating it can be to have something stuck in your ear for hours at a time.

  • When You Need To Work Light and Fast There's the Portege X30L

    I've been using the Dynabook Portege X30L laptop for a few months now. It was initially something that they sent me to try out with working remotely - at the beach, in the car, and even under an apple tree where I spent many Friday's this fall escaping the heat downtown. In a normal world, a laptop like this would be a boon for travelers but even now as I am spending more time inside, I'm sort of loving how light and compact the laptop is.

  • Edifier TWS1 Budget Friendly Wireless Earbud Review

    I must admit that I was a bit skeptical of the TWS1 earbuds when they were still being shipped to my house. I hadn't heard of Edifier before so I was ready to write this set of headphones off as just another cheap cash grab. However, upon their arrival, I can happily admit that I was wrong. The TWS1 earbuds provide an excellent range of features that maintain consistent quality throughout. At this price point, these true wireless headphones are well worth considering.

  • Tranya T10 Waterpoof Wireless Earbuds Review

    A good pair of wireless earbuds can be hard to find. That is even more true when you consider the wide spectrum of prices. At first I was skeptical of these new total wireless earbuds from Tranya since it was frankly a brand I wasn't familiar with and on top of that the price is incredibly low compared to others that I've tested at double or triple the price. However, I'm happy to report that the T10 earbuds by Tranya manage to put their focus in all of the right areas and these are a must buy if you are looking for a sub-$100 audio solution.

  • Introducing the ESCORT MAX 3 Radar Detector

    There are some that say you don't need a radar detector unless you plan to speed but for the rest of us the reality is that there are times when you will exceed the posted speed limit. Whether that is by traveling above the legal limit to maintain the flow of traffic or for some other reason, all it takes is a bit of bad luck to get caught. Beyond that, frankly, I enjoy the geek factor of having a radar detector in my car and having the Defender software on my phone to alert me way in advance of any upcoming speed traps. Escort, a company who's detectors I've been using for the past few years has now introduced the ESCORT MAX 3 radar detector and we had a chance to check it out.

  • Clario Introduces a Personal Touch To Cyber Security

    There are LOTs of apps out there promising to keep your devices and data safe but most rely on the user to do it themselves. While apps can be optimized and you can write the best documentation possible, sometimes it is nice to just have a human there to help guide you through a complex task such as keeping your data secure.

    Grills come in many shapes and sizes and frankly, I've seen them made with everything from ceramic to steel to cast iron and aluminum.

This grill from GoBQ is lightweight and truly portable since the outer surfaces are made from fabric while the legs and grilling surface are made from lightweight aluminum.

    Video game enthusiasts are always searching for that edge to improve their scores and while usually, that involves graphics cards, monitors, and mice - the value of a superior keyboard can not be underestimated. Most of us probably are still using that trash keyboard that came with your computer and I'd imagine that many of you are just using your laptop's keyboard thinking that is "good enough". It's not. For gaming as well as comfort with everyday typing, there is nothing better than a great keyboard. That's why I'm always thrilled to try a new one with sturdy mechanical keys that I can pound in anger battling foes on the battlefield as well as passionately typing out my latest article.

  • AU-Stream ANC True Wireless Earphones Great Sound Good Price

    I have a LOT of headphones, earbuds, and other listening devices that various brands have sent me over the years but I'm still searching for the perfect pair for traveling. While my preferred form factor is a full closed back over the ear style... they are big and bulky to carry. At the other end of the spectrum though are the relatively new earbud form factor popularized by Apple. Now, thanks to AuSounds I've had a chance to check this out with their new AU-Stream ANC True Wireless Earphone. It sounds great, compact, easy to charge, and the active noise cancelation (ANC) is surprisingly good for such a small product.

  • LucidSound LS50X Snoop Dogg Headset Is Totally Snoopadelic

    I've been privileged to test and review a lot of headsets that are sent our way and frankly, most are simply utilitarian or designed to just look great.

  • Five Things I've Enjoyed About Owning a Standing Desk

    A few months ago the folks at Autonomous sent me one of their Standing Desks and a great new office chair too. It was an interesting challenge trying this out since initially, it seemed to be more of a gimmick but then quickly proved to be something valuable that frankly should be the standard, instead of being perceived as an expensive luxury.
