If you regularly take the subway, ride a bus, jog in the early morning or evening hours, or walk around campus during hours when it’s dark, you might have felt that uneasy feeling that you get when you know something could happen, but you aren’t quite sure that you’re prepared for it. A D.A.D. 2 Defense Alert Device can help.
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. And, thanks to magnets, they’ll hang around for a while.
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. I was not sure what to expect, but this thing has blown us…
When Raina saw the CleverPet game console on Facebook, she said, “We need to get Nava one of these.” (Nava is our eighteen-month-old miniature golden doodle.) I asked why the dog needs a game console. Raina replied, “Not need… want… she’ll love it.” This is the first in a series of posts about Nava and her app-controlled game.
Sometimes shopping at the last-minute can be a good thing. You get your pick of all of the price cuts, and in many cases you find gifts that you would’ve never thought of that will be useful for the new year. Here are a few items that I think that you should check out if you are still shopping for…
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.
In some areas of life, “winging it” isn’t always the most effective option. You don’t guess at how much gas your car needs, so why are you guessing at the quantities of ingredients in your food?
When I travel, I inevitably end up in my hotel room with leftovers I’ve brought back from some restaurant. My intentions are good — I’m trying to not waste food from the meal I had, but 9-times-out-of-10 I don’t have anything to eat the leftovers with. I keep a Full Windsor Muncher Multi-Utensil in my checked luggage now: problem solved.
Did your 16-year-old just get their first car? Are you nervously biting your fingers every time they leave home? Raven gives you a way to know exactly what’s going on in your teen’s car — how they are driving, where they are driving, and who’s in the car with them — while disguising itself as a slick heads-up display.
We all know at least one person who is nearly impossible to shop for, whether it’s because they usually buy everything that they need when they see it or because they answer “I don’t know” when you gently probe them for things they might need. That’s okay, we are here to help!
Readers who have read my reviews here at Gear Diary or over on my site know that I travel. A lot. The bulk of my career has seen me travel to every lower 48 state and to many other destinations around the globe.
For the holidays I wanted to get my dog Sparky something other than cheap Amazon squeaker toys that he typically destroys in under an hour, so when I was presented with the chance to review the LINK AKC Smart Collar for Dogs, I was excited at testing a new product on Sparky that he couldn’t possibly rip to shreds.
Nomad makes some amazing products, from cases to cables and stands, and if you’ve ever eyed their carabiner with a mini USB cable attached, now is the time to snag it. If you head to Hello Nomad, and enter the code MINI, you can snag the carabiner for only the cost of shipping (normally $29.95). This ONLY applies to the…
I recently reviewed the SanDisk iXpand Base; it’s a simple way to back up all of your iPhone’s photos and contacts while you charge your phone overnight, and now you can win one!
We’ve reviewed many portable battery packs here, but the SYNAVOLT is the first I’ve ever seen that is both expandable and modular. Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, SYNAVOLT starts with a 20,000mAh base unit; it has two slotted expansion bay ends that can handle a variety of power-enabled modular attachments.
I have not had cable for almost three years. Instead, everyone in my house relies on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime for their entertainment needs, all on a Roku 3. It works quite well, and we probably pay around $25/month for the three services. Platinum Box is claiming to do the same thing but for free …
RAVPower is one of my personal favorite brands to buy accessories for all of my devices from, so I’m happy to share that the company is celebrating Black Friday this year with quite a few deals that will be great companions for your new tech gear that you plan on getting over the holidays. Disclaimer: Since each of the…
There are plenty of sophisticated gadgets coming out for pets these days – heck, we’ve lost count for how many GPS tracking colors there are available now, but Nitey Leash is the first time we’ve encountered innovation in a leash! The concept behind Nitey Leash is simple – it’s a LED leash that lights up.
As the holidays get closer, people start to look for tech gadgets to put on their wish lists or buy for others. Often, they prioritize gifts that help break bad habits or promote better ways of living for users.
If you enjoy spending time outdoors while barbecuing or camping, or if you simply find yourself suffering through periodic power outages, having a reliable LED lantern on hand makes sense. The ECOXGEAR EcoLantern gives you 360º sound as well as a 400 Lumens bi-directional light. It’s portable, versatile, and it will even charge your mobile phone.
Lenovo’s Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is arguably the most exciting use of augmented reality we’ve seen to date. To that effect, for anyone who has ever wanted to experience the feeling of what it’s like to wield a lightsaber (and that’s most of us) then this is the closest you’ll probably ever get to that experience. But sheesh – it…
