I Don’t Know About You, but I Actually Enjoy NBA2k20

Over the past two weeks the world has been in an uproar about NBA 2k20, a basketball video game that comes out yearly with what could be considered minor gameplay changes, but updated rosters. However, minus a few grievances, NBA 2k20 has been my favorite of the franchise in recent years.


A Review of the Viaggio Travel Pump by Silca

When we’re at the beach house during the summer, one thing we often have to worry about is air for our bike tires. But a lot of air pumps out there are clunky and outright cumbersome to deal with. However, the Viaggio Travel Pump by Silca is a stylish way of pumping up everything from pool toys, basketballs, and yes — even those bike tires.


Waterfield Travel Folio Is a Professional Way to Get Organized

I’ve reviewed numerous offerings from Waterfield. Their bags are always well-made, always look great, and are a pleasure to carry. The new Waterfield Travel Folio is one of the simpler Waterfield products I have used, but that’s not to say it isn’t impressive. Its clean design makes it look professional when you walk into a meeting. You’re going to love it.



Thermoworks Signals Is the Best Smart Thermometer for your BBQ

Thermoworks is our favorite thermometer producer because they are known for producing high quality, highly accurate thermometers and their Signals 4-channel thermometer follows suit. Signals was built for the serious BBQ pitmaster who wants to keep track of four different temperatures at once over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Signals retails for $229 and includes three cooking probes and one air probe.

There’s one case I’ve been using the past few weeks that have surprised me, and I think you should check out.

Keyport Modular Anywhere Tools Review

First things first: let me apologize to the fine folks at Keyport for my delay in writing this review. I received a set of Keyport’s Anywhere Tools all the way back in February. I put them on my keys, hoping to get some real-world use out of them before writing my review.






Sparky’s Scared of the Varram Pet Fitness Robot

Maybe I just have an awkward puppy, but Sparky is one of those pets that you’d consider a “chewer.” So when introducing him to the “Varram” — a “robot for pets” — it seemed that Sparky was more annoyed by it than excited.




Anker has the Gadgets to Cure the Back to School Blues

Anker has got your students covered for the dreaded back to school blues with some great music accessories as well as a fantastic power bank. All of these gadgets are small enough to travel with while offering great features and functionality at a reasonable price. Anker sent each of these products my way to test before I recommended them.


A Review of the Cleer Ally Truly Wireless Earbuds

There’s certainly a lot of competition in the truly wireless headphone market, but a lot of the latest have attempted to up the ante in terms of features, more specifically battery life. But the Cleer Ally True Wireless Headphones are doing just that, and more.




My Initial Thoughts on the Tom Bihn Synik 30 Bag

Being someone who’s never truly found the perfect bag, I always find myself looking for a bag that doesn’t think too much of itself, one that will fit into every situation. I’ve had people throw out various names of overpriced backpacks that either have little to no storage, very little organization or put so much of an emphasis on being stylish that they end up being ugly.
