The Honeycomb Sound Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review

Of all the Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed, the Honeycomb Sound Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has to be the most unusual — in looks, anyway. The honeycomb body is made of ABS plastic (I thought it was aluminum at first) with iron speaker grilles; the design is beautiful, but how’s the sound?

Juicies+ Cables Appear to Be (Yet Another) Overpriced Kickstarter Vaporware

Kickstarter is an interesting marketplace. On the one hand, it sometimes produces truly interesting products, but it also attracts companies who interpret Kickstarter success as an excuse to shoot for the moon (cough, Pebble, cough), as well as companies that see Kickstarter as a source of easy money, with no intention of delivering exactly as promised.

Chipolo Plus Review: Find Your Stuff!

Since we now have a Schlage Smart Lock on the front door, I often simply carry my car fob with me when I go out. The thing is, the car fob is so small that I often misplace it. That’s where the Chipolo Plus comes in.
