Both Greg and I love the Jabra Elite Sport Buds. They are comfortable, sound amazing and offer a ton of features. Now Jabra has announced three new Elite Series headsets– the Jabra Elite 65t, Elite Active 65t and Elite 45e that have Amazon Alexa integration baked in. I, for one, am pretty darn excited to try out them out.

From the start of the Chromebook phenomena, HP has been a major player. With the arrival of CES 2018, the company has announced two new Chromebooks. One is hitting the consumer market but is also targeted for enterprise, while the second is specifically targeted for board education; both will be available this February.
Belkin, one of our favorite accessory companies, is showing off a host of new products at CES 2018. Among them are new wireless charging offerings, a new power bank and a power delivery wall charging collection. They all arrive this spring and summer. Here’s a quick rundown of some of what they will have on hand.
If you like neckband-style wireless earphones, you want to check out the Jabra Elite 25e. Offering up to 18 hours of battery time, the Elite 25e are both wind and water resistance. They are an update to the Jabra Halo Smart and have a new neckband design that is surprisingly comfortable.
Minimalistic, wireless earbuds are increasingly commonplace. Over the next few days, we will be looking at a few current options. This time out we have the Soul PRIME Wireless In-Ear Headphones. These earbuds were previously called the MINI but have been rebranded. Offering a nice price, good battery life, comfort and impressive sound, they are worth checking out.
As Amazon Alexa continues its road to smart home domination, an increasing number of devices are adding Alexa functionality to their products. Azpen Innovation is jumping on the bandwagon with two Alexa-enabled DockAll wireless docking stations/chargers. If you make use of Alexa devices and have a phone with wireless charging, you need to check these out.
I’m a huge fan of Bodyguardz screen protection. In fact, it already saved my iPhone X from destruction. We’ll get to that in the next post but first, let’s look at the BodyGuardz Trainr Pro Case with Unequal Technology. It is a fantastic case and with the added advantage of an included armband for handsfree carry on the go.
We spend a lot of time reviewing various cases for the iPhone. That’s even more important now that Apple’s current lineup all have glass backs. That does not, however, mean we don’t need to consider protecting the screen. Thankfully, Bodyguardz offers the Pure 2 Premium Glass Screen Protector. It recently saved my iPhone X. I’m serious… it saved the phone.
I was out walking our miniature golden doodle Nava earlier today, and all I can say is… “BRRRRRRRRR!” It is seriously cold here in New Jersey. But Nava needs at least one walk a day, so into the cold we go. Thankfully, Everything Tech Gear sent their Model HF408 Hand Warmer & Portable Charger Power Bank with Flashlight for review.
If you are looking for a fantastic range of stylish, protective and affordable cases for your iPhone X, check out Incipio’s offerings. Whether you go for the simple Dual-Pro Sport, the light Octane, the refined Esquire or the wallet-ready Esquire Folio, there’s something for everyone. Let’s take a quick look at each and then give a couple away.
If you got one of the amazing iPhone X smartphones for Christmas, Chanukkah, or Festivus you know it’s a great pocket computer. You also know it needs a good case to protect the glass on both the front and the back. Fortunately, Speck has some great options that look great and do a nice job of protecting your pricey iPhone.
With temperatures in the teens, a delicious, hot cup of coffee is a “must.” We usually grab the pre-ground coffee, put it into a drip coffee maker, add water, and go. But while drip coffee makers are convenient, if you want a rich, full-bodied coffee it takes a bit more effort. Bialetti offers some great products coffee-lovers will love.
“Intelligent, truly wireless earbuds that give you control to hear what you want to hear in the world around you and connect to your digital devices.” That’s how Nuheara describes their impressive IQbuds wireless headphones. At $299, the IQbuds are pricey truly wireless earbuds, but they offer features that are nowhere to be found with competitor’s products. Here’s a look!
Distil Union makes great wallets. I’ve reviewed a bunch and use one every single day. Now the company has released two sunglass designs. I received the Distil Union MagLock Folly Sunglasses for review. These aren’t any sunglasses though. They frames are unbreakable. The polarized lenses are good for your eyes. And, thanks to magnets, they’ll hang around for a while.
When Raina saw the CleverPet game console on Facebook, she said, “We need to get Nava one of these.” (Nava is our eighteen-month-old miniature golden doodle.) I asked why the dog needs a game console. Raina replied, “Not need… want… she’ll love it.” This is the first in a series of posts about Nava and her app-controlled game.
Now and then a product comes along that doesn’t fit into an established category. The JBL Soundgear wearable audio device is one such product. The Soundgear isn’t a pair of headphones. It isn’t a Bluetooth speaker. It is a wearable music delivery system that creates an entirely new category. But I’m left to wonder, does it have a future?
Apple’s latest commercial for the iPad Pro highlights the fact that the tablet is powerful enough, and apps sophisticated enough, that it can replace a laptop. I’m not convinced I can go without a laptop, but the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro certainly moves the productivity of the iPad Pro in that direction.
My current home computing setup includes a 13” MacBook Pro connected to two 27” monitors. They look great and get the job done. But there is little that compares to the Dell UP2718Q 27” 4K HDR Monitor. With amazing resolution and remarkable color accuracy, it is a monitor built for professionals. It’s truly impressive with a price to match.
I’m a huge fan of Ultimate Ears speakers. The UE MEGABOOM was close to perfection. It delivers huge, amazing sound, has great battery life and is waterproof. It is an amazing Bluetooth speaker and one I highly recommend. Now, however, the UE MEGABLAST is here. It improves on the MEGABOOM, which is still a great speaker, in almost every way.
If you’re in the market for a pair of desktop speakers that are easy to set up and use, connect in both wired and wireless modes, sound good, and won’t break the bank, check out the Logitech MX Sound Premium Bluetooth Speakers. No, they aren’t for audiophiles, but for sound and ease-of-use at your desk, they will blow you away.
When we replaced our front door over a year ago, I purchased a Ring Doorbell; I love it. I love knowing who is there, being able to “answer” the door while away from the house, and the extra sense of security it gives me. When Ring offered a Ring Floodlight Cam for review I was, and continue to be, thrilled.
