This past week I was scheduled to lead a book discussion. It was a deep and complex work we were going to discuss, and I decided it would be best to have some visual aids. Thankfully, I had the new Acer C202i portable projector in hand for the review. It was simple to use and worked fabulously well!
Some months ago, I received a pair of the Master and Dynamic MW60 over-the-ear wireless headphones. Since they arrived, they have become my go-to headphones. Now the company has announced their first headphones with active noise cancellation, the MW65 over-the-ear headphones. What do I think about them? Put simply, we are giving them an Editor’s Choice award.
In my decade-long career as a food, drink and travel writer, I’ve learned to really appreciate the value of versatile, intelligently designed travel clothing. Believe me, I’ve tried all sorts of potential solutions before I settled on my new go-to brand, Bluffworks.
Let me just begin by saying this: Without the Zoom H6, my podcast experience has been less than mediocre. I’ve recorded using a USB Mic for the better part of year to record my show, but Zoom’s H6 has been a delight to use, and going forward it’s the only way I’ll record my show.
I’ve impressed with the way wireless headphones with active noise cancellation have evolved. Many now offer amazing sound, great battery life, and effective ANC. And many cost $300 or more. Not the TaoTronics Hybrid Active Noise cancellation though. They cost under $100. But are they any good? That was my question as I unboxed the review sample.

Having multiple devices with me day in and day out, occasionally they will need to be charged. Now I don’t have that problem, and it’s thanks to Satechi’s 75W USB-C PD Travel Multi-Charger.
iOttie, creators of best-selling smartphone mounts and a brand I’ve trusted for years, just announced their new iTap 2 Wireless Series of wireless charging mounts. The new iOttie iTap 2 Wireless Series uses strong magnets to keep your phone secure while built-in Qi charging keeps your phone’s battery juiced.
I’ve long been a fan of JBL’s headphones. They’re well priced, sound great and offer the features many of us most want. The JBL LIVE 650BTNC is no exception. For under $200 you get excellent sound, effective noise cancellation, and access to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. I think they’re great; you will too.
I have two gear pouches, a small one for every day and a large one for travel. Each carries an external battery and a wall adapter for charging. Thanks to the [FUSE]chicken Universal All-In-One Travel Charger, I can swap the two gadgets for a single one, as this is a wall adapter and a Qi charging battery.
When I’m heading out to the gym, to work, or just about anywhere, chances are I have a water bottle with me. In efforts to drink more water while not using plastic bottles, I stumbled across the Hydro Flask, and over the past month, it’s helped me not only consume more water daily, but it’s actually the best water bottle I’ve ever had.

Since Apple dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack, other companies have followed their lead. Yes, the 3.5mm headphone jack is quickly disappearing. In its place, there is a flood of new wireless headphones. Still, there is a place for this “older” technology, and the Flare JET earphones show just how good wired headphones with a 3.5mm jack can be.

I was impressed by the true wireless IQbuds from NUHEARA I reviewed some time ago. But while they offered some unique features, they didn’t stand far enough in front of the pack to make them my daily driver. The new IQbuds BOOST takes things up a few notches, and they do things no other true wireless earbuds can do.
I recently reviewed a stand-alone keyboard for use with any Bluetooth-enabled device. It is a good keyboard and a great option if you want something “universal.” If, however, you want something that is specifically designed for your primary device, and you happen to be using an iPad Pro 10.5”, look no further than the Brydge 10.5 Bluetooth keyboard.
