  • SWAY Premium Audio Speakers Perfect For Summer Picnics, Projects, And More

    A few months ago, we bought a condo in St Joseph, MI and there have been lots of projects that had to be done before we moved in. One thing was for certain though, some good music would go a long way and we wanted to share this with our contractor as well so that he could connect his phone to the speakers and have it loud enough to enjoy even if he wasn't in the same room. The folks over at Sway Premium Audio offered to send us a couple of their latest products for this effort, including Splash Extreme, and Flame Hydro Go. Our goals were simple - rugged enough that they wouldn't fail if some water (or dust, paint, etc.) and affordable enough that if something did happen, we wouldn't care about replacing them. These two speakers did that with very good audio quality and were designed well enough that even after dropping them a couple of times, they still work fine.

  • Arcade1up NFL Blitz Legends Arcade Machine Review

    I had the chance to check out the Arcade1Up NFL Blitz Legends Arcade Machine recently and I'm pretty impressed. While ideally, we'd all be able to afford the authentic coin-op machines that we remember playing as kids, this is a great alternative that has been designed for more compact spaces at home. This 4-player cabinet includes NFL Blitz, NFL Blitz '99, and NFL Blitz 2000: Gold Edition and even comes with a custom 13' arcade game riser for free-standing play. The NFL officially licenses it, has online multiplayer and leaderboards so you can compete against your friends, and is perfect for any game room or man cave. I’ll tell you all about this amazing machine - from its key features to assembly - so that you can decide if it's right for you!

  • A Good Battery Backup Can Save Lives: BLUETTI EB3A Review

    We've been fans of BLUETTI power stations for a couple of years now, but what most of you don't understand is that it goes deeper than simply the fact that I enjoy working with the team there as they are focused both on innovative technology but also developing products that help make lives better. I'm also an active user of their technology and about a year ago they also provided my father in lawn with one of their EB3A power stations to help him main his ability to use his CPAP machine despite an extended power outage due to a winter storm.

  • Why Every Man Needs A Tactical Pen: More Than Just Self-Defense

    When it comes to gadgets, I love them as much as the next guy and all too often they end up being too complicated, too breakable, and ultimately more of a gimmick than anything actually practical. On the other hand there's a relatively new category of tactical gear called a "tactical pen". I hadn't ever heard of this until I got a pitch from former CIA officer and New York Times best-selling author of Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Jason Hanson. This guy has now released what might be the ultimate self-defense tool that can be taken anywhere and yet is deceptively effective when used properly.

  • UAG Is The Only Brand I Trust To Protect My New Galaxy S23 Ultra

    This isn't hyperbole and aside from the obvious fact that the folks at UAG have been gracious enough to send me a few of their latest and greatest cases designed for the Samsung S23 Ultra, this post isn't sponsored in the least. Simply put, for the last several generations of phones, Urban Armor Gear - or UAG - is the only company that I trust to protect my mobile phones.

  • Tranya X5 Wireless Earbuds Review - Good Sound At An Affordable Price

    Tranya has launched a new pair of wireless earbuds in the style that wraps around your ear so that it is a bit more stable vs the more discrete in-ear style that personally... I'm always afraid of losing. This new Tranya X5 offers a good balance of affordable pricing and good quality audio with lower latency that makes it a good choice for anyone who is a fan of mobile gaming as well as those who sue wireless earbuds to connect to their laptop.

  • The SSL CONNEX: Premium USB Microphone Is A Great Product That Falls Short For Me

    When the folks at Solid State Logic reached out to me to review their new microphone I was completely excited. I need a good microphone, the one integrated into my webcam has been "good enough" but over the past few years I've become disatistifed with it's quality for anything more than basic Zoom chats. However, the fancier mics that I've tried tend to be bulky and visually become part of any video that I'm doing while all I want them to do is help make my audio better.

    The SSL CONNEX on the other hand looks just like those table top models that I was used to using in conference rooms but is designed to connect directly to your PC by USB. A Perfect match made in heaven? We'll see...

  • Wacom Intuos Pro: For Photography Enthusiasts Looking To Take Their Craft To A New Level

  • City Bonfires Is A Perfect Smores Solution When You Can't Build A Campfire

    Smores are delicious. Unfortunately, to do them right you really need a live flame and that can be dangerous. During the summer and fall, while hanging out in the backyard or camping outdoors a fire is easy to accommodate for most folks but what about in winter? in the rain? and for folks like myself who live in an apartment? Well... unfortunately, we're usually left out of the fun. City Bonfires though has introduced a solution and we're very impressed by what they've created.

  • DreameBot L10s Ultra Is The Perfect Gift For Guys That Hate Chores

    There's a weird double standard that younger men don't quite get and far too many of us learned the hard way. Simply put, despite how cool a gadget is... never buy your female friends or family members something related to cleaning the house. On the other hand, pretty much every gadget-loving guy that I know would be thrilled to unwrap a robot like this. The DreameBot L10s Ultra functions as a vacuum and as a mop and even features auto-emptying as well as self-cleaning functions. 

  • This ORFELD Stick Vacuum Is Your Multi-Purpose Floor Cleaning Tool

    This is the time of year when messy floors seem to show up only moments after cleaning. Whether it is dirt tracked in from outside, pet visitors who unexpectedly shed all over your couch, or that extra cinnamon you intended to add as a light dusting that now is spilled all over the floor... you need something prepared to help you clean those messes. The ORFELD Stick Vacuum is up to that task!

  • These Solar Powered Outdoor Speakers Are Perfect For Outdoor Entertaining

    While the weather might be getting colder and those of you in northern climates are probably looking at a snow-covered backyard instead of one with crisp green grass, that doesn't mean the time is over for outdoor entertaining. In fact, with these Bluetooth outdoor speakers from iLive it is pretty much ready to go whenever you are because they are both waterproof and solar powered.

  • ODBeleven Makes A Great Gift For A Greasemonkey

    Every occasion challenges us to find the best gift idea for our relatives, and friends.  Finding a good gift for men is even more challenging. What to speak about car lovers since we have so many stereotypes about them in our heads.  And of course, there is no one ideal solution for all but if you’re thinking about something useful – you should think about gadgets that should be in every car.

  • Powerboost Pro+ Is The Big Daddy Of Percussion Massagers

    For the most part, most percussion massagers on the market are the same today. The biggest differences tend to be in the style of the massage gun and that comes down to personal preference. While a few (including this one) offer unique attachments to improve their massage performance, they all pretty much do the same thing - pound your muscles into submission. The Powerboost Pro+ by Sharper Image though is different. While it has everything that I mentioned previously, it also comes with Hot and Cold massage heads that are capable of delivering an additional level of therapy to your sore muscles.

  • Powerboost Move Percussion Massager Is A Great Traveling Companion

    Percussion massagers are all the rage right now because of their ability to provide strong, deep tissue massages but most are too bulky to travel with. They are also too loud and frankly most are also too powerful for all but the most severe situations. That's where Sharper Image's Powerboost Move deep tissue travel percussion massager comes in... and we dig it!

  • Mobile Pixel DUEX Plus Gives Road Warriors A Second Screen

    I just came back from three weeks on the road and it was the first time where I left my big heavy laptop behind. Despite having a fantastic ultra-portable 13" Dynabook designed for travel, that has been my wife's laptop while I relied on my ancient "mobile desktop". The folks at Mobile Pixels offered to help me change that and make my backpack that much lighter and less complicated to pack for a long trip.

  • Gear That Will Turn Your Camping Trip Into A Epic Glamping Adventure

In this blog post, we'll discuss five ways to turn your next camping trip into a glamping adventure!
