UAG Offers New Bands for Apple Watch and They Are Great

One of the best things about wearing an Apple Watch is the incredible range of watch bands available for it. One Apple Watch can not only have numerous watch faces but, within a few seconds, a new watch band can change its entire look. UAG has rolled out some great new options.


Acer C202i Portable LED Projector Takes the Big Screen Anywhere

This past week I was scheduled to lead a book discussion. It was a deep and complex work we were going to discuss, and I decided it would be best to have some visual aids. Thankfully, I had the new Acer C202i portable projector in hand for the review. It was simple to use and worked fabulously well!




Varidesk VariChair Is Next Your Sit-Stand Desk Chair

I recently reviewed the Varidesk ProPlus 36 Electric Sit-Stand desk converter. It’s awesome. (Read my review.) I also reviewed the Varidesk PowerHub. It’s also pretty great. (Read my review.) In the third and last review of this series, we are taking a look at the Varidesk Varichair. This unusual chair was built with sit-stand desks in mind!


Honor Teases the Upcoming Honor 20 Launch and Their Collaboration with Moschino

We’ve been quite impressed with the various phones we’ve reviewed from Honor. Their sleek form factor, powerful processors, fantastic cameras, and implementation of AI have made their offerings stand out in a crowded field. Now Honor is getting ready to unveil their next flagship phone, and they are teasing a special collaboration with Moschino.


The Varidesk PowerHub Puts Power within Reach

In my review of the awesome Varidesk ProPlus 30 Electric sit-stand converter, I noted the company includes one of their PowerHubs with the purchase. (Read my review.) It gives you three AC outlets and two USB ports. I also noted that the Varidesk PowerHub, which is also available as a standalone product for $50, deserves its own review. Here’s why.


Stand Up! With the Varidesk ProPlus 36 Electric

I needed more work space, so I recently added a fixed desk to my office’s standing desk and placed my iMac on it. The problem was, my computer was now only usable when seated. Thankfully, the Varidesk ProPlus 36 Electric arrived for review. It once again lets me work both seated and standing. It came fully assembled and ready to go.


The Surprisingly Inexpensive TaoTronics Wireless Hybrid Headphones with ANC

I’ve impressed with the way wireless headphones with active noise cancellation have evolved. Many now offer amazing sound, great battery life, and effective ANC. And many cost $300 or more. Not the TaoTronics Hybrid Active Noise cancellation though. They cost under $100. But are they any good? That was my question as I unboxed the review sample.



Audioengine’s New A2+ Wireless Speakers Are Small but Mighty

The first hardware I ever reviewed was a set of Audioengine A2 speakers; they were small, powerful and sounded amazing.  In fact, the only knock I had was their lack of wireless capabilities that required me to get a Bluetooth adapter. Now Audioengine has released the Audioengine A2+ Wireless Desktop Speakers, and all I can say is “wow!”

Poly Studio Turns Any Space Into a Video Conferencing Center

Poly describes their new Studio USB Video Bar as “built for small rooms and big ideas.” The Poly Studio is a relatively small video conferencing bar that’s packed with tech. It brings surprisingly powerful conferencing tools to any room that has a monitor/tv and a computer. Under $1000, it’s an excellent solution for any organization needing access to video conferencing.


Harman Kardon Citation ONE Is the Start of Your Smart Multi-Room Speaker System

For years the multi-room audio market was owned by Sonos. Amazon chipped away at that a bit by giving their Echo speakers multi-room functionality. Sonos responded by adding Alexa to their speakers. Well, things are changing, and Harman Kardon’s new Citation line of speakers is ready to give both a run for their money; the entry-level Citation ONE is superb.



Master & Dynamic USB-C to 3.5mm Audio Cable Is a Great Accessory

Greg turned me on to Master and Dynamic headphones at CES a few years ago. He loved the MW60 wireless over-the-ear headphones he reviewed. The company sent me a pair, and I agree; they’re awesome. Their $49 USB-C to 3.5mm Audio Cable is great when I need a wired connection to my iPad Pro.



Audioengine A2+ Wireless Speakers Take a Classic and Cut the Cords

My first website was an iPhone app review site. When we expanded into covering hardware, I was fortunate enough to get a pair of Audioengine A2 speakers as my first review item. Now Audioengine has refreshed the line and added Bluetooth. The new Audioengine A2+ has a classic look, but they are an entirely new offering from a fantastic company.



Sony Announces Xperia 1, Their New Flagship Phone

The Sony Xperia line of phones has long been one of our favorites. The Xperia Z2 was the first “phablet” I owned. I loved it. The line has gotten better and better with each iteration. Now Sony takes things to a new level with the Xperia 1. The Z is gone, but the phone looks amazing.
