I’ve been using Blue Microphones products for some time when making recordings at home. So when Blue burst onto the scene with their first headphones, the Mo-Fi, I was intrigued. (Read our review.) The headphones looked impressive. Good news is, they sounded just as impressive. Now the company has announced their first wireless headphones. The Satellite takes everything the company…

As I have previously posted, I’m a fan of Active Edge products. I started as a skeptic but my personal experience has turned me into someone who wears one of their products on a daily basis. I was thrilled when they came out with the Active Edge Leather Mariner. It took the Active Edge technology and packaged it into something…
Samsung Electronics’ unveiled their new QLED TV Series QLED TV today at CES 2017. Judie was there for the reveal and to say that it is “the world’s first television to reproduce 100 percent color volume thanks to new and advanced Quantum Dot technology.” Just doesn’t cut it. These displays are freaking gorgeous.
I used Speck cases for quite some time. They looked great and offered good protection. Eventually, however, I began finding them to be a bit too bulky. I stopped using Speck on my personal phones. With the arrival of a review sample of the Speck Presidio for iPhone 7, I’m back with Speck. Here’s why.
To call the FABRIQ speaker cute is a fair assessment. It is fair… but it is incomplete. Because while the FABRIQ is a small, cute, Bluetooth speaker, it is also a smart speaker that integrates with Amazon Alexa, has an affordable $49 price, and offers multi-speaker connectivity. Those last two points, price, and multi-speaker connectivity are an especially nice combination.
Olloclip burst onto the scene a few years ago, and they proved that while the iPhone’s camera might be great, this accessory could make it even better. The company has since rolled out numerous iterations of their lenses and kept adapted to each new iPhone design. The Core Lens Set is designed to work with the Apple’s latest and greatest.
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. Thing is, the car fob is so small that I often misplace it. That’s where the Chipolo Plus comes in.
Winter is here. The doors and windows stay shut. The air can get stale. Ans we now live with a fast-growing golden doodle puppy sleeping in a crate next to the bed. It is a formula for air quality that needs help. Well, help came in the form of the Honeywell AirGenius 4 Air Cleaner.
Some time ago I wrote about my surprising experience with Active Edge products. I came into the review rather skeptical but, by the end, was enough of a believer that I went and purchased a few more products. Now the company has taken a huge step forward and created something that looks more refined but offers the same promised benefits.
We recently reviewed the waterproof BRAVEN 105. It is a fine speaker at a great price, but for under $50 you can’t expect to get amazing sound. By spending a bit more you can up your game and get the BRAVEN BRV-1M. At $99.99 it is double the price but, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!
This post brought to you by Schneider Electric . The content and opinions expressed below are that of Gear Diary. I’ve spent a good bit of time adding smart functionality to Raina’s and my new home. When the chance to check out Schneider Electric’s Wiser Air was offered, how could I resist?
My favorite tech item in my home is the Amazon Echo; the Haiku L Series fan I reviewed is a close second, especially since they work together. So I was excited to check out the Haiku Light. At $199, it’s a pricey ceiling light, but now that I’ve reviewed it I’ll be buying a few more. Yeah, it’s pretty awesome.
As I’ve previously noted, I’m a huge fan of Audioengine products. The HD6 are among my favorite speakers and the B2 resides in our bedroom. So color me surprise that I think the HD3 Wireless Music System is AudioEngine’s best offering yet. These may look like simple desktop speakers, but they’re a complete music system packing Audioengine’s best audio tech.
Over the past few years, we’ve reviewed a number of speakers from BRAVEN. INCIPIO’s acquisition of the brand clearly hasn’t slowed the pace of development. If anything, the exact opposite has happened, and there are a host of new products being rolled out. The BRAVEN 105 is the first of three we’ll be looking at in this review series.
I’ve written about my experience with Nixplay frames previously. I love the ease-of-use they provide and really enjoy being able to see various pictures from the trips Raina and I have taken. The company recently released the new Nixplay Iris 8”. At $199.99, this is the company’s most refined WiFi frame yet and … I love it.
So you got your shiny new iPhone 7, And you love that they came with Lightning EarPods AND an adapter. But you’ve already lost the adapter, and your favorite headphones have a 3.5mm plug. What are you to do? That’s where Griffin’s iTrip Clip Bluetooth Headphone Adapter comes in. At just $19.99 it fits any budget!
I love Audioengine speakers. The HD6 are among my favorite speakers. So I was excited to hear about the new HD3 Wireless Music System. They look like AudioEngine’s familiar desktop speakers but they’re something new. As the company explains, “the HD3 is a complete music system that allows you to listen to all of your music from any source.”
The Brydge keyboard for the iPad is a Kickstarter success story. Since releasing their first, crowdfunded keyboard, the company has continually been adding to their line-up. There’s now a Brydge keyboard for each of the current iPads. These are premium iPad accessories but, as the holiday approaches, the company has made all of the keyboards a bit more accessible.
The initial appearance of Lifefactory’s water bottles and wine glasses make them look like they were made for kids. They weren’t. Yes, the raised grip sleeves make them look “youthful” but these products aren’t kid’s stuff. They are well-designed products that will help keep a grip on your hydration or your favorite glass of wine. Let’s take a look.
It is old news that the iPhone 7 dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of wireless Bluetooth connectivity. That would be okay, except Apple has delayed the release of their AirPods Wireless Earbuds. Fear not, however, because the Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo Bluetooth Earbuds with Portable Charger are available now! They are tiny and sound great.
I love my Amazon Echo and the way Alexa controls so many of my smart home features; I love the simplicity and power of the Logitech Harmony Hub and Remote, and I especially love the fact that the two now work together. A new Amazon Alexa Skill makes it all possible.
