While working from home last year, I found a new appreciation for clothing that is also both comfortable and durable. Now, as I prepare to return to the office, I’m building a smaller wardrobe filled with exactly that. I’m focused on comfort and durability; the Olivers Apparel Passage Pant is part of that new “uniform.”
I’ve pretty much gone all-in with MagSafe for iPhone, and I’m discovering an entirely new range of accessories that make using my iPhone 12 Pro even more convenient. The $39.99 Twelve South Forte for iPhone with MagSafe is one such accessory. It offers clean lines and an adjustable viewing angle. You will, however, need to supply your own MagSafe charger.
The Yadea KS5 Electric Scooter is the third scooter I’ve had the opportunity to review, and it’s the first that is more than merely fun to ride. Thanks to its powerful motor, excellent range, and assorted comfort and safety features, this scooter has enough “oomph” for me to use as a daily ride to and from my office a mile away.
Whether gaming or working, what you choose to sit on can greatly affect your performance. Everyone has unique ergonomics and comfort adjustment choices, and the Mavix M5 Gaming Chair addresses all. Add in the Elemax to keep you cool, warm your muscles, and add therapeutic massage, and we are looking at a complete game-changer.
I’ve become a bit of an accidental expert in massaging recovery tools. I’ve reviewed a few massage guns as well as a vibrating massage ball, and today we’re taking a look at another massage gun, the addsfit Elite Massage Gun. This is a crowded market; does addsfit’s contribution stand out? Read on to find out more!
The pandemic inspired many people to get back outside and enjoy biking, hiking, and other social-distancing-friendly activities. It was the inspiration for me to start biking again, and I’ve really enjoyed getting back into it with the State Bicycle Company 4130 Road Bike.
I thought I had found a near-perfect laptop in the Lenovo Yoga 9i, but that was before I met its even more compact sibling, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i. Although choosing the IdeaPad Slim 9i over the Yoga 9i requires you to do without the 360º rotating screen with the Dolby soundbar hinge that makes the Yoga 9i a true 2-in-1, there’s an excellent trade-off. In return, you get an even slimmer, lighter, and less expensive laptop that is also gorgeous to look at, a pleasure to use, and that’s powerful enough to do just about everything.
When my wife decided she would finally have knee surgery to repair her torn ACL and meniscus in early May, we knew it would be a while until she truly got back on her feet. But now that she’s been in physical therapy, there’s been only ONE shoe that she’s trusted through the process — Reebok’s Nano X1 cross-trainers.
Whether you’re using them for remote work, school, or at your business, for gaming, or consuming media, tablets have really proven their worth. The MediaTek Kompanio 1300T is a system on a chip (SoC) that will bring a premium experience to tablet users with its advanced 5G multimedia, AI, and gaming technologies.
I am not a great cook. There are a few reliable things I can bang up in the kitchen, and I can generally grill and produce what my son assures me are edible meals. Still, the kitchen is a wild and vaguely frightening place. I was excited to check out the Galanz ToastWave, though, as it promised to combine several kitchen appliances into one; I had high hopes it would at least make my kitchen experiences less stressful!
Working from home has its own set of challenges for us all. Many of us attempt to emulate the desktop setup we had in the office from our house, but we have so many items, from drives to monitors to keyboards and mice, and so few USB ports! If this is you, then the Plugable Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a great solution to consider.
I love my M1 MacBook Air. It is thin, light, and incredibly powerful. But the lack of ports on Apple’s current laptops continues to be a challenge. That’s why I always carry an OWC USB-C Travel Dock with me. Now there is an OWC USB-C Travel Dock E; the small, $64.99 hub is a powerful way to get connected.
When I was a lad, we had one-speed bikes with banana seats* and sometimes big high backrests, like the kiddie version of Zed’s chopper, Grace, that Butch makes off with in Pulp Fiction. Sure, there were 10-speeds and the standard 1-speeds that Schwinn was famous for. And…um…that was pretty much it. Not any longer, baby! Now you’ve got so many different types of bikes it makes my head spin! And now we have word that Trek has expanded its premium custom bike program, Project One ICON, with a brand-new paint scheme called “First Light.”
There are certain tools we all need to carry to get us through a day. If I am at the ranch or out hunting or hiking, one of those tools is always a good flashlight. The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements Limited-Edition Tactical Light has proven itself to be a fantastic everyday carry option.
Back in 2017, we reviewed the DaVinci IQ Precision Vaporizer and were impressed. The company recently unveiled its latest, the DaVinci IQC Vaporizer. At $229, the IQC is $70 less than the IQ2. The IQC lacks its older sibling’s Air Dial that lets users adjust the airflow, but it adds charging via USB Type-C. Let’s take a look.
LaCie is known for its premium external hard drives and SSDs that have been proven to be reliable at saving all the important data of our lives. I maxed out the 1TB hard drive on my Macbook Pro, and the 10TB LaCie d2 Professional Desktop Drive has become a great extension of my storage!
As I noted in my recent review of Moment’s MagSafe mount accessories, I’ve recently developed an appreciation for Apple’s MagSafe charging system. Those mounts do a great job of holding your iPhone, but they don’t address the need to charge your iPhone while it’s mounted. The Nomad Leather Cover for MagSafe Charger does.
Weber is known for high-quality gas grills, and its newest entry into the market is no exception. Following smart home trends, Weber has released their first line of smart grills, and we’re happy to report that the Weber Spirit SX-315 Smart Grill is what you’d expect from Weber, given their reputation. Weber’s line of smart gas grills starts at $849.
Dry herb vaping is a fairly simple concept. Heat herbs, inhale the vapor, repeat as needed. But while it can be simple, there are many opportunities to blend technology into the process. AirVape Legacy SE Vaporizer puts simplicity and technology together into a single solid and sleek package!
I am essentially hapless as a guitar player. My brother, now he can rip; he has a mini-studio, several guitars, a bunch of effects, friends he records with, and he even had a band for a while. Me? I stick to the piano. But I do love the equipment, the gizmos and gadgets, and gear. And here comes BOSS to fulfill my gadget/gear/gizmo-loving soul with the new EUROS GS-1 Electronic Guitar, Wireless Pedal, and gig bags.
It is no secret that I love to cook meats. Smoking and grilling are some of my favorite hobbies and one of the few that I would admit I am pretty good at. So when offered, I jumped at the chance to try out the Meat District Ultimate Grilling Pack. The meats come seasoned and frozen, delivered right to your door.
