It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, and with that being the case, a lot of traditional devices that came with USB 3.0 will be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future. This includes the external hard drives that we use today.
If you work outdoors, or you just like to spend a lot of time outside, you know that there are mini disasters that can occur which are out of your control. Dirt, wetness, and fumbling resulting in drops are to be expected, and not every phone can handle that kind of abuse. The AT&T LG X Venture, however, can.
As a runner, I am always looking for new and cool ways to be more visible. At the same time, I look for things that are convenient, comfortable and don’t require me to do much thinking at 4 AM when I get up to go running, so I was immediately interested in the LumaGlo Crossbelt.
Based out of Philadelphia, Copper Spirits send me over two of their rare and fine spirits to check out: The Slow and Low Rock & Rye, and their Hochstadter’s 1884 Family Reserve Straight Rye Whiskey. And as a bourbon and whiskey lover, it’s worth mentioning, these are two of my new favorites, for different reasons.
Using a fingerprint to unlock your phone is one of the most convenient ways to make sure that your information and photos are kept locked down. But fingerprint technology hasn’t kept up with all of the capabilities newer phones sport — like waterproofing and being able to fearlessly to use your phone in the rain or in the pool.
Did you know that there is an Amazon service that offers great deals on unlocked phones? Check out Prime Exclusive Phones; today they are extending their lineup to add the new Nokia 6, the Alcatel IDOL 5S, the Alcatel A50, the Alcatel A30 PLUS, and the MotoE4.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
Iconic guitar manufacturer Fender announced today a special collaboration with Tim Armstrong, the singer/songwriter from Rancid.
When we first tested the 10th generation Honda Civic last year we were left yearning for a manual gearbox. We got our wish as Honda recently brought us its all-new 2017 Civic Si, the first turbocharged Si in the model’s history.
I recently “renovated” my home office. It now has a new 13” MacBook Pro, an UPLIFT standing desk from HumanSolution, a big beautiful monitor from AOC and AudioEngine HD3 Bookshelf speakers. Key to this setup, however, is the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. At $349.99 it is pricey, but it turns my laptop into an amazing desktop.
Summertime is here. That means more time outside enjoying all that the great outdoors has to offer. It also means fewer pockets. And THAT means more opportunities for your iPhone to get dropped, damages or soaked. Thanks to the BodyGuardz Trainr Pro Case with Unequal Technology you don’t need pockets, and you don’t need to worry.
Nothing says summer like a new pair of shades. If you’re looking for a great pair of American-made luxury sunglasses, look no further than STATE Optical Co. They are super high quality, beautifully designed, and made in Chicago. Fighting against notorious eyewear mega-corporations like Luxottica, STATE Optical is a breath of fresh air in a crowded market.
Do you have pets? Do you live in a dusty area? Do you have a smoker (or vaper) in your family? Do you have seasonal allergies? Are you or a family member an asthma sufferer? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you would benefit by having an Oreck Air Response Air Purifier in your home.
Over the years, I have been impressed by the process Plantronics brings to product development. On a fairly regular basis, they release something brand new. But on an even more frequent basis, they take what exists and simply make it better. That’s the case with the new Voyager 3200 Series.
Amazon just added a Sirius XM skill allowing users (All Access or Streaming Subscription required) to listen to SiriusXM channels on any of their Amazon Echo devices. SiriusXM joins existing music services Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and Tunein Radio as music integrations that work on Amazon Echo devices.
In fall of 2014, I published a review of the ZAGG Rugged Folio Keyboard Case for the iPad Air. It was serious protection for a serious tablet. Now that Apple offers an affordable 9.7” iPad more people will likely be taking iPads more places. Thankfully, ZAGG has released the Rugged Messenger for the latest 9.7″ iPad in Apple’s lineup.
There are many Bluetooth speaker options out there. Most offerings are a single speaker to make them easy to carry. The KNZ GoDuo brings a unique design allowing for single carry portability as well as stereo sound. The successful Kickstarter campaign still has early bird options available for $79; let’s take a look.
It’s not very often that I open a box and have to stop what I’m doing to inhale the fragrant smell of fine leather wafting as I unwrap the contents, but that’s exactly what happened when I recently opened a package from Galen Leather. What was inside the box? Beautiful cases for my iPhone, 12″ MacBook, and 13″ MacBook Pro.
If you have to take conference calls regularly — even when you’re traveling — then you know that it can be a pain to carry a portable speaker with you. The Pioneer Rayz Rally is a powerful, portable conference call speaker that is so small it can fit in the palm of your hand with plenty of room to spare.
Last year, I reviewed the Focal Listen Headphones; even though they were wired, I thought they were excellent. It was only a matter of time before Focal introduced a Listen wireless version, and now it is here. They’ve also added two in-ear headphones to their line-up: Spark and Spark Wireless.
As a huge fan of backpacks, it’s no surprise I’ve had my eyes on Oppermann London’s collection of products. This year the company revealed its name change by rebranding as Carl Friedrik, and what better way to make a statement than releasing awesome accessories. This month the company released their Collection 3, inspired by the company’s new identity.
