If you see a friend with a gadget fetish carrying something different, chances are it is something new and trendy. Gadget-heads are seen as fickle and trendy, and bitterly loyal … for about 30 seconds until the next bright & shiny object comes along. But I have typically held on to the stuff I loved the most, and recently I’veRead more
Since I began writing for Gear Diary I have gotten to know my FedEx and UPS delivery people quite well. Fact is rarely do two days pass when I don’t see one or both of them.
I sold my Kindle2 a few weeks back and had no plans to purchase another one unless Apple doesn’t come out with a light-weight
[Ed note: This review is being simultaneously posted on Gear Diary and Just Another Mobile Monday.]
Quite often HTC will release several versions of a single model, and depending upon whether you buy an unlocked or carrier subsidized version, you might end up with very different features. Such is the case with their new QWERTY Windows Mobile Smartphone, the Snap.
We all know that the way in which we connect with one another is rapidly and radically changing. What seemed the stuff of science fiction just a few years ago is now part of our day-to-day. The iPhone many of us carry is, in fact, more powerful than the computers we used a short time ago.
The change is SO
OK, so it took me a little longer than most to adopt the new iPhone into my life. Truth be told I preferred the video and still image functions of the Nokia over the Apple product.
It wasn’t until recently that I seriously began questioning my choice of cellphones.
The final convincer was a mention of some new software and

Back in late June Judie reviewed the SKYlasers 125mW green laser pointer, providing a fun look at some of the interesting things you can do with a laser such as that. Soon thereafter, TechLasers provided us with one of their 95mW Infinity II 532nm Green Laser Pointers to evaluate for review. Judie also sent me the SKYlasers pointer, soRead more
One of the best applications for the Blackberry platform is the Blackberry Messenger application. It allows Blackberry users to message each other using their device’s unique PIN number. The messages come and go quickly and no SMS messages are used in the process.
This sort of feature is sorely missed on the iPhone OS. That is until now.
I’ve had a few cats and none of them seemed terribly fond of playing dress up. I can only imagine the fun you’d have trying to fit kitty into an emergency evacuation vest in the midst of fire, flood or other natural hazard. Seems like a portable pet carrier might do just as well. This emergency pet vest offers:
My buddy Patrick gave me a heads-up regarding a new app that coming to the App Store today. Well, actually it is a new app FOR the App Store but not a new app at all.
The app, Snapture, has been available on jailbroken iPhones for quite some time. To use his words, it is “like the built-in
I’m currently training for what will be my 12th marathon. This time I’ll be tackling the 26.2 mile distance down at the Outer Banks Marathon in North Carolina.
In addition to running 11 other full marathons I’ve run quite a few other races in my running career. One of the items that goes with every race is a runner’s bib.
Picture this: You live two and a half miles from your front gate, and you want to know who is entering or leaving your property; or you own a half million dollar mobile home that is kept at a storage facility, and you want to check in on it daily without actually driving to the edge of your city; or
Are you an AT&T cellular subscriber suffering through poor signal coverage at home or in the office? Up until now there wasn’t much you could do except take the phone into the attic in hopes of catching an extra bar or two of signal coverage. For the last year (or two) T-Mobile and Verizon and Sprint all had offerings thatRead more
