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.

Are you tired of smearing your phone or tablet screen with finger grease every time you tap on it? Do you usually have a ballpoint pen on you? If so, why not combine something you already always carry with something you’ll also enjoy using? Take a look at the Just Mobile AluPen Twist L or S; the ballpoint pen stylus.
When’s the last time you had to participate in a conference call? If that’s not something you do regularly, then you might think that there’s no reason for you to be interested in a review of the Jabra Speak 710 … but you’d be wrong.
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.
Two years ago, I gave the V2 Pro vaporizer a try; today, I’ve got the new V2 Pro Series 3X Vaporizer in hand, and it’s an interesting upgrade. Designed for e-liquid but adaptable for loose leaf and wax, the Series 3X adds variable voltage and temperature settings for your vaping pleasure.
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.
In a market that is full of options, you’ve got to offer something special if you’re going to come out with a new wireless portable speaker, especially if you want to attract the interest of people who are used to thinking of other brands. The V-MODA REMIX Bluetooth Speaker enters that market knowing full well what needs to be done.
This is a joint review of the LG G6 done with my writing partner of many years, Julie Strietelmeier of The Gadgeteer. To read part one, please click here; after you’ve read that, come back to read this part.
If you want to know more about what’s coming up for Acer, be sure to watch their global press conference. It is streaming now, and you’ll be able to watch it in full after the event.
What’s necessary to create a 360º video with true 3D sound? At the IFA Global Press conference, Dr. Andreas Sennheiser was there to explain the case for immersive sound when filming content (360º and regular) and to us and tell us about their new AMBEO Smart Headset.
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.
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.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Pool season is coming up fast, and so are a lot of holidays. If the special people in your life likes to enjoy music outdoors, then they are going to love the new WOW-SOUND waterproof speaker. Available on Indiegogo for as low as $150, the WOW-SOUND is one versatile, excellent sounding, long-lasting Bluetooth speaker.
“Hey, nice watch!”, I heard yet again today. That watch happens to be the Misfit Phase, a connected combination watch and fitness tracker that can count steps, distance, calories, and light as well as restful sleep. With the Misfit app on your iOS or Android device, you can easily keep track of how you are doing.
If you’ve got a shiny new iPhone 7, then you’ve probably already noticed that the cables that come from Apple simply don’t hold up; whether they are fraying at the connectors or they’re getting weird kinks in them, their design is… not great. If you’re ready to upgrade, take a look at the Just Mobile AluCable Flat with Lightning Connector.
If the idea of quitting cigarettes and moving to vaping appeals to you, then you might find yourself a bit overwhelmed by all of the options available. If you want to jump right in with a non-intimidating kit that works right out of the box, then you might want to take a look at the Mistic 2.0 POD-MOD system.
If your phone screen is too small for reading and your tablet is too large for convenient use on the go, then the 8.4″ Huawei MediaPad M3 may be just right. Available in either a 32GB or 64GB model; with its sleek style, Kirin 950 processor, 5100mAh battery, and Harman Kardon sound, it’s the best sub-$300 tablet available.
When’s the last time you purchased a printer? Were you as surprised as I was by how inexpensive they’ve become? Here’s the thing, though: the printers themselves are inexpensive, but when purchasing ink cartridges, you’ll learn that great deal wasn’t so great. That’s why I’m so intrigued by the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer.
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.
You may be following my experience with the PicoBrew Pico; if so, then you know that I was able to brew beer on the countertop of my kitchen without much trouble. I’ll have an update on my homebrewing adventures soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share news on the PicoBrew Pico Model C, new on Kickstarter today.
