SMS Audio Street by 50 Wired Headphones review

Last week we posted a review of the a-JAYs ONE+ headphones. (Read it.) They sport a flat, tangle free cable, a selection of different ear cups, an in-line microphone and audio controller and, the most unusual package I have seen in a pair of headphones.

Should eBooks and Privacy Be a Concern for Us?

Here’s another reason for eBook haters to complain about the digitization of the written word — your reading habits are no longer secret.

Back in December we did a post and video comparing the Spar Zephyr 300 and the JawBone JamBox. (Read the post.)

Photojojo’s DSLR Bank

It may not keep a thief from finding your valuables if you’re ever robbed, and it certainly won’t take a great picture, but Photojojo’s cool DSLR bank will definitely look cool on a shelf while collecting about a pint’s-worth of your change.
