Realme GT Explorer Master Edition Review: Good Looks, Performance, and Value

The realme GT Explorer Master Edition has a solidly built glass slab design with an aluminum frame, as we’ve seen from just about every other brand’s flagship smartphone, or you can opt for something a bit different if you get it in the Voyager Gray option. As I catch myself admiring this smartphone’s expensive feel, brilliant display, and curved edges, I have to remind myself that with starting price of $499 for the 8GB RAM with 256GB user memory version, the GT Explorer Master Edition is a very decently priced flagship device. Who is realme? And why should you consider…


Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade Flavored CBD Powder Review: Convenient, Fast Dissolving, and It Tastes Great

I’ve taken CBD supplements for a couple of years, and doing so has made it easier to manage aches and pains and daily stress. I’ve tried various CBD softgels and tinctures, but I’m not always fond of the way they taste. Caliper’s flavored CBD powder Swiftsticks are fast-acting CBD powder that’s clinically verified as THC-free; even better, it actually tastes great. For summer, they’ve released limited edition Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade flavored CBD powder packets; they’re the perfect daily supplement that you’ll actually look forward to taking.


Nomad Leather Keychain for AirTag and Glasses Strap for AirTag Review: Keep Track of Your Keys and Glasses with Integrated AirTag Holders

A few weeks ago, I reviewed one of Nomad’s new AirTag accessories, and more than once, it has already helped me locate my keys. Today we’ll take a look at their latest AirTag accessories, the Nomad Leather Keychain for AirTag and the Nomad Glasses Strap for AirTag. Both look great, but more importantly, both options offer handy ways to incorporate AirTags into your everyday items to help keep track of your stuff. The fact that AirTags are basically useless without accessories like this is troubling, but thankfully, Nomad has stepped up.

Xebec Tri-Screen 2 Review: Bring Triple the Screens and Triple the Productivity to Your Laptop!

There’s been a few small positives to working from home during the pandemic. One was that I’ve really dialed in what I need to work remotely, in terms of work software and hardware like external mouse, extra monitor, etc. Unfortunately, if I want to work on the go, I can’t easily carry a full-size monitor with me, so I was super excited to review the Xebec Tri-Screen 2 and see if portable multi-screen work was truly possible!



Addaday BioZoom Edge Review: Bluetooth Enabled to Maximize Your Massage Gun Experience

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Likewise, you shouldn’t judge a massage gun by the initial impression. I was skeptical about the Addaday BioZoom Edge massage gun when I first unboxed it; the Edge was bulky and heavy compared to some of the more svelte massagers I’ve encountered in the past, and I didn’t think it would stack up given how large it was. That skepticism was before I gave it a full test run, though! Will Bluetooth and a powerful motor overcome the bulkiness? Read on to find out!
