BottleKeeper Keeps Your Beer Fresh and Cold

I have never been a fan of bottle cozies. They just look silly. I have never been a fan of warm beer. After all, I’m an American not British. Choosing between using cozies or warm beer the warm beer has always won. Now, thanks to the BottleKeeper, I don’t need to choose between silly and warm.


FOREO ESPADA Blue Light Acne Treatment Device Review

Other than a few pimples and the typical blackheads, I never really had to deal with teen acne. Fast forward to my 20s, 30s, 40s, and now entering my 50s; while I still have relatively good skin, I deal with hormonal breakouts all the time. All. The. Time. The FOREO ESPADA is supposed to help, but does it? Can it?



Moto Z2 Force Has the Makings of Greatness

The path that Motorola has taken with the Android lineup over the past couple of years has been a bit hit or miss.  They have produced some great phones like the Google branded Nexus 6 while others like the Moto E lineup have been lackluster at best.


UPLIFT Motion Stool

Human Solutions, makers of great sit-stand desks suggests, “It’s time to rethink the concept of what an ergonomic office chair should be. The stylish and ergonomic UPLIFT Motion Stool has what your body needs for any type of perch-standing at your desk.” They sent me one for review with their UPLIFT Desk and I am sold.



MyCharge AdventureUltra Keeps Gear Going on the Go

One of the things I love about my new MacBook Pro is the fact that it uses a USB-C charging port. That means I can now charge my laptop on the go along with my iPhone and Table. The $129.99 myCharge AdventureUltra makes that possible, but it goes one step further by adding a built-in AC power port.



Flexound HUMU Smart Cushion: Hear and Feel Your Music

What’s your favorite way to lean back, to relax while watching television, to listen to music, to play video games, or to meditate? Mine is to lie on the floor of my office, reclining with two pillows I stole from our couch, fully relaxed. But now I have an even better way, using the HUMU Smart Cushion.


Innergie PowerJoy 30C USB-C Wall Charger with Travel Plugs Review

If you travel regularly to different countries, then you know that an assortment of power adapters for each country you’ll be visiting is a necessary investment. Here to make worldwide charging of your MacBook and phone (or tablet) more simple is the Innergie PowerJoy 30C USB-C Wall Charger.


Nomad USB Hub Review: Organize Your Power

We’ve all seen the USB hubs that look like a black or silver block with three or more USB ports on the front and a wall charger cable on the back, right? They work well enough, but they aren’t particularly organized or nice looking. Here to prove that you can have organization and good looks is the Nomad USB Hub.




I’m a Fan of the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging

I recently reviewed the AOC 2781PQ 27” Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor. It was ideal as I set up my new home office. (Read the review.) When AOC asked me to also review the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging I was thrilled. I now have an awesome dual-screen setup on my desk at home!


Lyric C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera Lets You See Clearly Now

Since renovating our home last year, we have maintained the temperature in the house using the smart Lyric Thermostat from Honeywell. It is a great way to remotely cool or heat our home. Now Honeywell has released the Lyric C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera, and I’m please to say we have one in use in our home. It’s great!


Toffee Osaka Satchel Makes Simple Become Extraordinary

Messenger bags are a simple concept. You have some sort of pouch-like item attached to a shoulder strap that you wear over one shoulder or across your body. Pockets, design, color all add to and change the basic idea, but they’re all similar at the end of the day. It’s the details that make a bag go from eh to…


iHome Brings Your Music Wherever You Are with Rugged and Outdoorsy Bluetooth Speakers

Just a few short years ago, the idea of portable Bluetooth speakers was a high-tech concept. They’ve become quite ubiquitous since then, but ready availability isn’t the only obstacle. They are, after all, delicate electronic devices, and sand, water, grit, and whatever else nature has out there can cause serious harm. Unless, of course, you’re packing an iHome speaker!


Anker PowerCore II Slim Is the Perfect Pocket Companion to Your Smartphone

Anker makes some of the best external battery packs on the market, hands down. Back when I played Pokémon Go, I was never without my Anker PowerCore+ 26800 Portable Battery Pack. Nowadays, I tend to carry lighter battery packs, and my current favorite is Anker’s latest, the PowerCore II Slim. Boasting 10,000mAh of juice, the PowerCore II Slim by Anker…


UUNI 3 Portable Wood-Fired Pizza Oven Is Deliciously Fun

Some time ago Perry did a full review of the UUNI 2S Portable Pizza Oven. He was impressed, and you can check out his full review here. Now the company has released the UUNI 3. This is an update to the unit Perry reviewed, and it takes creating wood-fire pizza at home to a new level. Let’s take a look.


BRAVEN Flye Sport Reflect Is Ready for Wireless Audio Action

I recently reviewed the BRAVEN Flye Sport and was, admittedly, a bit critical. The best thing about them is the sub-$50 price tag. At $99.99, the BRAVEN Flye Sport Reflect is double the price but, in my opinion, worth the price. They sound better, are more comfortable, and come with some extras that will surprise and delight you. Here’s why.
