If you’ve got a tablet or phone that uses USB Type-C, then you’ll be glad to know that the myCharge HubPlus C is out and ready to charge your new LG, Samsung, Huawei, BlackBerry, Pixel, or other devices that take Type-C. But if you have an older device, too, it’s okay; the HubPlus C has both Type-C and microUSB built-in.

The BlackBerry KEYone Review: Your Favorite QWERTY Keyboard is Back

If you’d asked me several years ago if I’d be recommending a BlackBerry phone in 2017, I probably would have laughed and said no. For years, BlackBerry has seemed one step away from death taking the physical QWERTY keyboard along with it. No one could be more surprised than me that I like and enjoy using the new BlackBerry KEYone.

Vi AI Personal Trainer: More Than Just a Fitness Coach

I’ll start this post by stating a simple, known fact: I am not a runner. I’m more of a jogger or a fast walker, but once I’ve started I’ll at least keep going — even if my speed isn’t going to win any medals. The Vi AI Personal Trainer aims to help me become a better and more consistent runner.


V-MODA REMIX Bluetooth Speaker: A Customizable Powerhouse

2017 IFA Global Press Conference: The Sign of What’s to Come

For the past few years, I’ve been one of a select group of international journalists invited to the IFA Global Press Conference. A warm-up, if you will, for the yearly IFA convention held in Berlin, the press conference is a great time to check up on the current and future status of the global electronics market.


Brewing Beer with the PicoBrew Pico S: Racking, Kegging, and Tasting!

When I last left off, I had brewed my first batch of homebrew with the PicoBrew Pico S. I waited a little bit longer than after the fermentation had stopped to rack and keg it because I wanted to be sure I’d given it enough time, and because Kev said it wouldn’t hurt anything to wait; he was right.

Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer Review

When’s the last time you purchased a printer? Were you as surprised as I was by how inexpensive they’ve become?

That’s why I’m so intrigued by the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer.


QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs: Silence Found?

My husband snores. not all the time but sometimes, and if I don’t fall asleep before he does, his snoring can keep me awake. Kev’s had a sleep test (there’s no sleep apnea), and he’s tried various anti-snore devices to no avail. I’ve tried earplugs, but they block everything (like alarms); it’s better to use QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs.
