It was already happening but Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 advanced the case for wireless headphones significantly. Plantronics set out to make a pair of affordable wireless? headphones that didn’t make you compromise. The result? The Plantronics Backbeat 500 Series Wireless Headphones. At under $80 they are affordable. But are they any good?
Reinventing the vehicle that launched a segment might be headlines news all unto itself, but what Chrysler has done to the minivan segment is absolutely electrifying. Really. Chrysler designers and engineers have delivered the best minivan yet in the new 2017 Pacifica, and it is now offered with a hybrid gas/electric powertrain.
We get a lot of product pitches here, but one caught my eye not for the features, but for the exorbitant price relative to the value. Palo Alto Innovations is clearly quite proud of their Sandman Clock, but at $49.99 it appears to be a ridiculously overpriced alarm clock with a USB hub slapped on the back.
Popular password manager LastPass is warning about a security vulnerability in its browser extension.

Against Judie’s suggestion of waiting until Apple updated the Macbook with better specs, I still went ahead and ordered the Apple Macbook from October 2016 with Touch Bar and I’m truly in love with it. It has its quirks, but one thing I wasn’t prepared for was all of the dongles I would need.
I spend a lot of time out and about whether travelling for games or out in the woods. Keeping drinks warm or cold is always an issue. A small ice chest is not always in the cards, so I usually turn to high quality drink ware. The Pelican TRAVBO32 bottle ($39.99) has proven its worth in my recent tests.
If you happen to have a new MacBook pro, but finding yourself having a bit of trouble figuring out what products to get for it, from cases, to even dongles, look no further than Moshi.
An ad* says you should use Febreze on household items you can’t wash — things like pet beds, couch cushions, curtains, throw pillows, and fluffy throw blankets. Here’s the thing, though — spraying a deodorizer on those items does nothing more than mask odors. If you want to deep clean these things, you can use the RAYCOP RS2 Fabric Purifier.

For some reason it seems as if the arrival of spring has been marked by the arrival of the newest GMC Sierra Denali pickup in our test driveway and this year has been no different. Last year, the model received some styling and technology upgrades. That trend continues for model year 2017.
Todays’ wearable technology is being used to track a great many statistics related to fitness and health. Devices from Fitbit and Jawbone, for example, can be used to monitor heart rate, calories burned, total activity time and much more.
Super Mario Run is on Android! Hooray! I downloaded it the second I got the Google Play notification, but by the time I finished the free levels, I went from “whoo hoo” to “meh” pretty quickly.
I have a soft spot for gear that works with the Withings app; I’ll admit it. I lost 43 much-needed pounds while using the Withings app in conjunction with their Smart Body Analyzer scale, and I track my nightly sleep with their excellent Aura Connected Clock. So when offered the chance to review the Withings Steel HR, I gladly accepted.
If you have a jet black iPhone 7 Plus, then you know how beautiful it looks with its shiny shell. A lot of Apple users had hoped there might also be a Jet White option. Well, if you’re familiar with the company Totallee, you can get a similar effect with their latest case for your existing iPhone 7 Plus. Totallee sent us over their “Scarf” case for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a unique Jet White colorway that is the perfect contrast for users who enjoy the Jet Black color that Apple offered, but wanted to see a…
I have always had dreadful handwriting. Most of my elementary school memories are of teachers trying all kinds of techniques to improve it, from handwriting drills to those funny triangle holders on my pencils. Nothing worked, and I sought out digital writing and typing as soon as technology and school allowed.
Good luggage is hard to find, but if you’ve ever heard of the company Away Luggage, then you’ve noticed their 4.7 rating for their products on their own site, as well as the good reviews found in a simple Google Search.

There are countless portable battery packs on the market today, but one issue that plagues the majority is that you have to bring your own cable with you when you intend on using them. This results in having to wrap the cable around the charger when not in use, making the whole point of a portable charger rather useless.
