Inventio HD 720P Video Sunglasses Review

A number of months ago I reviewed the PivotHead Video Sunglasses. (Read the review.) I used them in Aruba (watch the video) and then again in Cuba (watch the video).

Steadicam Smoothee Video Review

Some gear reviews require tons of pictures and text. Others don’t. This video look and review falls into the latter category. Why?

This is a gadget that lets you shoot video with your iPhone (or other small video devices so long as… Read More ›

Dexim ClickStik Review

We reviewed the Satechi BT MediaRemote back in July and were impressed with the functionality it brings to pretty much all iOS devices.
