CDW in a Nutshell: Much More Than Just a Computer Discount Warehouse

Until last week, my experience with CDW consisted of purchasing a replacement battery from them after finding that they had the best price for one of my APC backup units. Last week I visited their Vernon Hills, Illinois warehouse, and now I know that they are much more than just a supplier of IT products.


Close5 Location-Based App Makes Selling Items Safer and More Local

Most of us hate trying to sell things online. There’s been many cases where I’ve attempted to sell things and the buyer backs out, or I’m too afraid that the person might not be as legit as I think. Thus you have to play a guessing game when meeting in a public place to sell that lovely dining room table…


Dlodlo Announces the World’s Lightest Virtual Reality Glasses

Dlodlo, the world’s leader in Virtual Reality products announced earlier this week their Dlodlo VR Glasses, the world’s lightest portable Virtual Reality Glasses.   Upon first glance, the VR glasses aren’t what you’d expect out of a Judge Dredd movie. The fashionably designed, wireless, and super lightweight glasses are not only portable and comfortable (unlike their competitors), they actually do…


The 2016 Kia Sorento SUV Is One Hot Mid-Size SUV!

What happens when you bring forty (or so) auto writers to Lake Tahoe to cover the launch of the 2016 Kia Sorento the day before a huge winter storm is predicted to roll in? It turns out that not only have you guaranteed that the SUV will have a chance to shine, you’ve also guaranteed a great time for all.


One Headset to Rule Them All: Life With the Sony Xperia Z2

While Judie and I were together last weekend, we discussed the features of the Sony Xperia Z2 we find most compelling. We both said we love the magnetic charging point that lets us quickly charge the phone. Having just flown to Israel, I have to say the built-in noise cancellation has now risen to the top of my list.

Papernomad has an interesting twist with cases made from brown paper and felt, allowing you to feel like your iPad is a childhood textbook.


9 Reasons the Samsung Gear 2 is Google Glass Minus the Glasshole

Judie and I bought Google Glass a few months ago. We enjoyed taking pictures and shooting video with them, but post-CES 2014 we sold ours. The reason? Glass is fun and innovative, but it’s not ready for prime time. My Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 are. Yes, Gear is Google Glass without the glasshole. Here are nine reasons why.


Keep Your Sanity By Speaking to An Actual Person at USPS

My dislike for the United States Postal Service is at an all-time high. An iPad I sold on eBay vanished after I sent it. I get that packages get lost by USPS. It is what happened since (or more appropriately, what has not happened since) that is making me nuts. This tip at least let me speak to a human-being.


What’s Your Daily Driver Smartphone (and Why)?

When we talk about a daily driver device, we’re referring to a smartphone that’s with us no matter where we go — our primary way of communicating with the world, our most favored device which, for now, just might come as close to the perfect device as possible.


The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini Is Almost Awesome

I’m a huge fan of Logitech’s various keyboard cases and covers for the iPad, and because I am seriously considering putting my iPad Air up on eBay, I decided to check out the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini. I hoped it would be a great productivity tool as my iPad mini becomes even more central to my workflow.


Own the 1987 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Used in ‘Wolf of Wall Street’

It never ceases to amaze me what people will pay to own a piece of pop culture; case in point, the 1987 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio used in the Oscar nominated “Wolf of Wall Street”.  I own a 1986 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio, and as much as I love my car, I’m shocked to see bidding for this one at $80,000+(!!).



Keep Your Pebble Extra Pebbly with SlickWraps

When Pebble announced the new Pebble App Store I was intrigued. I was an original backer of the Pebble but sold mine when it came. I went out and picked up a new one and realized I needed to find a way to keep it from scratching. That’s where SlickWraps Pebble Watch Color Series Matte Black protection came in.


Own a Piece of Jurassic Park History, Just Stay Away from the Raptor!

Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies. I remember seeing it as a kid, and I was gleefully scared out of my mind in the first moments when the unseen raptor attacked the worker transferring her to a new cage. Really into Jurassic Park? Head to eBay, and you can own the very cage and raptor from the movie!




New Laptop? ZAGGify It to Keep It Looking Great

If you picked up a new computer, phone or tablet during Black Friday you aren’t done shopping yet. Make sure to check out ZAGG and stock up on some protection for your new device. My 11″ MacBook Air looks great and I’m committed to keeping it looking that way. A ZAGG invisibleSHIELD is a big part of making that happen.


The Astak Neos – An Android Tablet for Family Fun and Copious Cooking!

I love to cook. I store most of my recipes in Evernote, so when making unfamiliar dishes I always need access to a smart device. Usually I’ll walk back and forth between the kitchen countertop and dining room table where my laptop sits, checking ingredients as I work. That’s all changed since I got the Astak Neos Android Tablet.


HTC One Max Android Phablet Unboxed and Examined

I like my HTC One; it has turned out to be the best Android phone I’ve ever owned or used, but I do wish that it had a larger screen and a better camera. When I heard there was an HTC One Max coming out, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. Larger screen? Better Camera? Yes and no, but …


The $0.50 Per Week iPad Mini Rental

The high resale value of Apple products has long been a compelling argument for the perceived premium — I remember reselling my Titanium Powerbook for ~80% of retail a year later so I could jump to the new Aluminum Powerbook. In contrast, the high-end Dell XPS laptop I bought at the same time fetched less than 40%.
