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.
After doing a lot of reviews on products, some of those products get stored in a bin to be used in case of emergency, and some others? Not so much. I tend to find myself using still other products on a day-to-day basis, and I wanted to highlight a few of them.
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.
One thing about commuting with a backpack to work daily, or traveling, in general, is overall comfort. There are plenty of bags on the market that promise you the ability to carry multiple items but at the expense of feeling as though you have textbooks weighing down your shoulders. That’s not the case with the eBags Professional Slim Junior Backpack.
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.
If you’re a fan of backpacks, but tend to travel, or even walk around in public but worry about your personal belongings, there is a bag that can completely eliminate the thought of someone possibly standing behind you, grabbing your belongings. That bag is called the RiutBag R15 by Riut.
There’s an enormous debate in the running world about how your feet should hit the ground. For a long time conventional wisdom said heel first, but in the last few years, there’s been a push towards a more natural forefoot-first style.
At $79.99 Grand Trunk’s medium Compression Pack Cube might appear a bit too pricey. There are, after all, much less expensive travel cubes on the market. After using the review sample I received on a few trips, though, I’m a huge fan. It is a great way to pack your items before the trip and keep clean and soiled garments…
Whether you are an experienced, well-seasoned traveler or a person who travels just a few times a year, keeping your critical information handy and organized is essential. In my career, I’ve logged well over 2 million miles in the air, and if there is one thing I’ve learned, having all of your boarding passes, passport and frequent travel cards in…
We recently were offered a rather unusual review item; a cube made of Tungsten. It didn’t charge anything, it didn’t come with Bluetooth, and as far as I can tell it doesn’t have any memory expansion. However, out of all the items I’ve reviewed for Gear Diary, almost none have elicited the joyful response that the Tungsten and Aluminum Desk…
I’ve always said that there is no such thing as the perfect mobile device. People have different needs and wants from a phone which is why, in part, there are so many Android devices & form factors out there today. That said, the new Huawei P10 may be close.
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.
It was already happening but Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 advanced the case for wireless headphones significantly. Plantronics set out to make a pair of affordable wireless? headphones that didn’t make you compromise. The result? The Plantronics Backbeat 500 Series Wireless Headphones. At under $80 they are affordable. But are they any good?
Against Judie’s suggestion of waiting until Apple updated the Macbook with better specs, I still went ahead and ordered the Apple Macbook from October 2016 with Touch Bar and I’m truly in love with it. It has its quirks, but one thing I wasn’t prepared for was all of the dongles I would need.
I spend a lot of time out and about whether travelling for games or out in the woods. Keeping drinks warm or cold is always an issue. A small ice chest is not always in the cards, so I usually turn to high quality drink ware. The Pelican TRAVBO32 bottle ($39.99) has proven its worth in my recent tests.
If you happen to have a new MacBook pro, but finding yourself having a bit of trouble figuring out what products to get for it, from cases, to even dongles, look no further than Moshi.
An ad* says you should use Febreze on household items you can’t wash — things like pet beds, couch cushions, curtains, throw pillows, and fluffy throw blankets. Here’s the thing, though — spraying a deodorizer on those items does nothing more than mask odors. If you want to deep clean these things, you can use the RAYCOP RS2 Fabric Purifier.
The SpiderLight Hand Strap is THE BEST way to carry your mirrorless or lightweight DSLR camera. Specially designed for smaller cameras, your hand slips in and out easily while you can still maintain a secure grip on your camera. The adjustable SpiderLight Hand Strap can be yours for $40, and it is available in a variety of colors.
I have a soft spot for gear that works with the Withings app; I’ll admit it. I lost 43 much-needed pounds while using the Withings app in conjunction with their Smart Body Analyzer scale, and I track my nightly sleep with their excellent Aura Connected Clock. So when offered the chance to review the Withings Steel HR, I gladly accepted.
If you have a jet black iPhone 7 Plus, then you know how beautiful it looks with its shiny shell. A lot of Apple users had hoped there might also be a Jet White option. Well, if you’re familiar with the company Totallee, you can get a similar effect with their latest case for your existing iPhone 7 Plus. Totallee sent…
