  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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 fall into "fun and entertaining" or "bigger/smaller, faster, prettier," though, and there aren't that many things that really stand out as game-changers and something that everyone should have in their homes. goTenna is one such item, and I am thrilled to have been chosen to test it out earlier this month.

  • It's OK for Your Car to Smell Good (and still be a man)

    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 FreshTech™ though that offers a solution to both of my problems, so I decided to test it out.

  • SanDisk at CES - More Ways to Store Your Stuff!

    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". 

  • Style and Design is a Huge Personal Technology Trend For 2016

    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.

  • Thanks to Highland Titles, You May Now Call Me Lord!

    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.

  • For Work or For Fun, Esquire Mini Sounds as Good as it Looks

    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.

  • Merge VR Goggles Review

    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.
