The One61 Flash Smartwatch Will Make You Want to Get up And Move!

The Flash TV show on the CW is a mixed bag. It’s not the best-written show, but it transcends script weakness through the sheer charm and chemistry of the cast. The One61 Flash Smartwatch is taking notes from the TV show; it has a lot of flaws, but it’s just so darn cute it almost balances out.








UA Sport Wireless Flex Are Engineered for Greatness by JBL

The UA Sport Wireless Flex is another pair of sports earphones resulting from a collaboration between Under Armour and JBL. Previous collaborations have yielded decent offerings that, while good, didn’t get me overly excited. The UA Sport Wireless Flex is different.

I’ve previously reviewed each of the various generations of Plantronics’ BackBeat GO wireless earbuds. When they announced the BackBeat FIT 305 Wireless Sweatproof Sport Earbuds, I was curious to see what Plantronics had done to make excellent wireless earbuds even better.

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!







Rowkin Rolls Out Two New Ways to Cut Headphone Cables
