Do you own a four-wheeler, a snowmobile, a motorcycle, a golf cart, or any vehicle that doesn’t have LoJack, OnStar, or some other form of real-time GPS tracking? If so, then you’ll be interested in the SPOT Trace GPS Tracker. And guess what? It will even work in backpacks, luggage, or other moveable objects that you need to track.

We all have that one person who stumps us every year, the person we love so much, who we want to give a truly thoughtful gift to, but what? They buy themselves anything needed, and they have few wants (that you know of!). Well, here are some thoughtful, useful, and unique gifts to help you get your creative juices going.
TripIt says I’ve made 20 trips over 96 days in the last year, and I still have two trips left before the end of 2015! With nearly 1/3 of this year spent traveling, I’ve figured out a few items that definitely make the voyage easier. Do you have a favorite traveler on your holiday gift list? Here’s help.
These days I try to keep it as minimalistic as possible, and even as an avid Mac user there are certain instances where I NEED to use Windows, and I think I might have found the perfect solution, all for under $100 dollars.
Are you feeling overwhelmed because you don’t know where to start with your holiday shopping? We’re here to help with Black Friday and Cyber Monday tech deals. Just take a look at some of the bargains we’ve found!
Raina and I went to register for all new bedding. Unfortunately, the sheets we initially picked out were a fortune! Right about that time I was offered the chance to review the initial offering from Nile Threads. They are “a radically transparent bedding company” that charges just $154 for Egyptian cotton bedding that could be as much as $500.
This post brought to you by Parrot. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Gear Diary. I recently had the chance to check out one of the new Parrot MiniDrones. There thirteen “ultra technological connected robots” in the Parrot MiniDrone lineup and each has something special to offer.
Unless you live in a humid climate, it’s almost always a good idea to have a humidifier running in your home. They can help with everything from breathing issues, to preventing sinus infections, or providing relief from dry skin and hair. But knowing which humidifier to buy can be tricky. I’ve tried several brands; my favorite is the Dyson Humidifier.
I’ve been committed to getting in better shape this year. We ended up canceling our gym membership at the start of the summer, and I switched to bodyweight workouts for strength training. There are a few ways to take bodyweight training up a notch, including suspension straps, and Lifeline Fitness sent me their Jungle Gym XT straps to test!
Last year Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Coffee created their first travel kit, which released just in time for the holidays. This year they’ve got an even bigger and better holiday collaboration brewing, and if you are stumped about what to give your favorite serious coffee drinker (even if it’s you), then The Sabbatical should be a winner!
Corkcicle is a product I stumbled upon from a co-worker that has a ridiculous addition to coffee, and an even crazier need for it to be steaming hot as if their local coffee shop just brewed it. So when the company sent over not one, but TWO of their products for me to review, I was excited. One of… Read More ›
As an Architect in the digital age, I have to review, mark up, and collaborate on construction documents every day, sometimes on the go. BluVue looks like an awesome mobile construction software that allows you to manage, distribute, annotate, and share plans digitally with any iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can check it out today with a free trial.
Want to share larger files from your iPad with a friend? Want to back up iPhone content without uploading to the cloud or to a computer? Want to stream movies for the kids to watch on your next car trip? The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick was created so that you could do all that and more.
Back in 2007, Livescribe introduced a product that bridged the analog and digital worlds-you use a physical pen and real paper, but everything you do is digitized and stored to be searchable and categorized. It was awesome, and just got better-in 2014 Dan reviewed the Livescribe 3, which I continue to love.
Kev and I recently adopted Hephaestus, a similarly colored cat to my darling departed Avah. Heph was about six-months-old when we moved in with us, so one of the first things we did was get him fixed, and then we introduced him to the LitterRobot, which he took to like a champ. (Formerly) male cats are awesome, but the smell!
One of the newer pieces of tech that I’ve had a hard time getting too excited about is 3D printers. It’s probably because most of them look pretty complicated, and they aren’t cheap! Dremel, makers of the tool every hobbyist is familiar with, has their own 3D printer; it’s affordable, and it’s supposed to be easy to use.
Boogie Board, manufacturers of LCD eWriters that write similar to pen and paper, have announced their latest eWriter innovation, the Play n’ Trace. It’s a see-through eWriter for kids that is meant to promote creativity while developing motor, communication, and writing skills through a companion iPad app. Featuring a dual-tipped stylus, Play n’ Trace is available today for $29.99!
The Aura Clean Ultrasonic Toothbrush System by Tao is more than just an electric way to get rid of those cavities, it’s also supposed to keep away the harmful germs in your bathroom away from your mouth as well.
You’ve seen those self-balancing scooters that all the celebrities are riding, right? They’re like mini-Segways with only two wheels and they’ve got LED lights and they make you look like you’re gliding down the street. Now, you can have one of your very own in one of five colors for only $500 from our friends at Cyboard.
If your house has a power outage at night, you probably won’t have a backup power solution in place. I ran into this a few weeks ago when our power was out from 6:30pm to 9:30 the next morning. Ugh. BeON Bulbs not only solve this problem, they also handle security and safety lighting duties in your home. How? Well…
