Many years ago, my grandmother had a computer. She was super excited to keep in touch with me when I went to college, and she mostly used it to email me and play solitaire. Unfortunately, it eventually proved too complex for her, and she reluctantly gave it up. Technology has made a huge leap forward in the intervening 20 years, and now people have significantly more options for keeping in touch with elderly relatives. GrandPad thinks they have developed a smooth and easy way to keep grandparents and families connected. Does it work? Read on to find out!Read More
Google introduced the Pixel 6 series last October. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagship smartphones debuted upgraded designs with a distinctive new camera module. Rather than their usual Qualcomm system on a chip, the Pixel 6 series launched with the new Google Tensor SoC, an in-house mobile processor focused on AI and machine learning for even better Pixel device experiences. If you were intrigued by the Pixel 6 series but would prefer something smaller and a bit less pricy without feeling a “that’s all I could afford” let-down, the Google Pixel 6a may be just right.
The new Master & Dynamic MW75 over-the-ear wireless headphones with active noise cancellation were recently introduced. The follow-up to the company’s impressive MW65, this latest offering builds on their years of experience and reflects Master & Dynamic’s growth since their first headphones launched in 2014. The MW75 are impressive, but are they worth the $599 price tag?

As gas hit prices few have ever experienced in America this past spring, I decided to start riding my bicycle to work. I quickly discovered that I needed a backpack small enough to wear on a bike comfortably but large enough to carry all of my day’s gear. Enter the WaterField Sutter Slim Laptop Backpack; it’s perfect for my needs.
People are traveling for work once again. Fortunately, more thin, light, powerful laptops are available than ever before. Unfortunately, most of those laptops fall short in the port department, and I’m not just speaking only about Macs! That’s where the IOGEAR Dock Pro 6-in-1 4K Dock Stand comes in; it’s light and portable and adds some important ports for on-the-go computing.
For years, I never paid over $15 for a t-shirt. But, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. So I started spending more on merino wool t-shirts, and I have no regrets. My newest, the Olivers Convoy Tee, may be pricey at $88, but it is actually a decent value. Let me explain why.

When I started wearing clothes made from merino wool, it was all about the base layers. In recent months, I’ve come to appreciate that some companies are also using merino wool for more traditional clothing; the Isobaa Mens Merino 200 Long Sleeve Polo Shirt is a prime example.
I’m still slightly surprised that more people don’t understand and appreciate that merino wool clothing isn’t just for winter. Merino t-shirts are great all year long, merino boxers provide four seasons of comfort, and the Isobaa Merino Blend 200 PJ Shorts are great for summer lounging and sleep. They’re pricy but oh so comfy.
The Swagtron EB11 Electric Cruiser Bicycle is a beach cruiser-style bike with a 250W electric motor to assist you on your journeys. While it has an MSRP of $1511, it is currently on sale for just $799.99. That makes it an absolute bargain. It is a good eBike but, as we will see, it is far from perfect.
We’ve reviewed quite a few massage guns at Gear Diary; most of them are priced in the $75 to $125 range, and all do an excellent job of unclenching sore muscles and improving recovery times. One company has taken the budget-friendly massage gun concept to a whole new level by selling theirs for under $30. But is it possible to make an effective massage gun and sell it at that price? We’ve been testing the Taotronics 10 Speed Massage Gun, and we have some good news!
