Mophie Wireless Charging Base Review

Mophie is no stranger to wireless charging on the iPhone – they managed to bring wireless charging to the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus before Apple integrated it into the iPhone X with their charge force cases.

Distil Union MagLock Folly Sunglasses Stick Around Thanks to Magnets

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.

Professional Slim Laptop Backpack: The Bag That Can Do It All, from eBags

Earlier this year I reviewed eBags Professional Slim Junior Laptop Backpack, and I loved everything from its minimalist approach to carrying your everyday items, to its unique straps, zippers and overall comfort. But for those times where I carry a bit more than just my iPad Pro and a battery pack, I wanted a bit more.



The Yamaha DTX400K Electronic Drum Set Really Rocks!

We have many musical instruments at our house, but we have always lacked a drum set. My youngest son has begged to learn how to play, so when I had the chance to review the Yamaha DTX400K electronic drum set (MSRP $799), we jumped all over it.

Nava Meets the CleverPet, and She’s One Happy Pup!

KitSound Voice One Smart Speaker: Better Than Any Echo

I purchased the first generation Amazon Echo thinking it was the best Alexa-enabled speaker available — at the time, anyway. While the Echo does all right in a smaller room, the speaker is anemic at best.

Do you live on a busy street? Have noisy neighbors? Do you have a housemate who snores in an adjoining room? All of these things may be no big deal during the day, but at night, when you need to sleep, they aren’t exactly conducive to a solid 8+ hours, are they? You need the Nightingale Smart Home Sleep System.



JBL Soundgear Wearable Speaker Breaks the Mold, but to What End?

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?



Be More Productive With the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple 10.5″ iPad Pro

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.
