Shaving Is Getting High Tech, and We’re Not Just Talking Razors

Gillette recently contacted Urbasm to test out some of their upcoming shaving innovations.  Putting aside my utter hatred for the Pats, I asked my editor Eric to put me in touch with them. When I opened the kit they sent, I found instructions to download an app entitled ShaveMetrics that synched with the razor provided.  […]

LumiWave Infrared Therapy – Portable Injury Recovery for the Armchair Athlete

If I could receive $100 for every injury-healing gadget I’ve ever wasted my money on over the years… well, I’d have a good start to getting back all the money I’ve spent. It just seems like there are a lot of promises floating around with very little delivery. Which is why it is nice to […]

SmartLock Bluetooth Padlock – It’s Got the Brawn and the Brains

The world does not really need any more ‘smart’ devices (please, no)… but in this one case, we’re going to make an exception. Dog & Bone has designed something pretty special with this LockSmart Keyless Bluetooth Padlock. Its stainless/alloy body is brawny, heavy and stout; its electronics are secure (128-bit encryption), weatherproof and intuitive; and […]

Gift that Keeps on Giving – A Home Battery

Tesla and Mercedes-Benz are expanding their lithium-ion technology into your homes with these home battery units (a.k.a. private energy storage plants). They can be charged in a number of ways, but would work particularly well with an existing roof full of solar panels. They function well as a backup power supply in outages and can also help […]

RHA S500i – Budget In-Ear Headphones Without Sacrifice

You may know the RHA T20 as one of the premium high fidelity noise isolating in-ear headphones available today. However, this kind of technology does not come without a price and in the case of the T20, the buy-in comes at around $240. But what if you use your headphones primarily for kicking around at […]

Rock Jaw Alfa Genus V2 – $100 Worth of Earphone for Under $50

I almost cringe calling the Rock Jaw Alfa Genus V2 a ‘budget earphone,’ as that phrase has often been reserved to describe acceptable sound quality. And in this case, we’re talking about an earphone with premium/customizable sound, quality materials, a nice selection of accessories, and it just so happens to cost under $50. What’s the […]

The Cloud Is Great – But a Hybrid Storage Solution Could Be Better

Running out of storage or having your media get corrupted may be your worst nightmare when working with digital media, whether you are a photographer, videographer, musician or gamer. At best it puts you behind several hours to your last saved copy, and at its worst it could mean a lost client. Storage is cheap, […]

Trinity Hyperion – It’s Amazing What $39 Can Buy

A price point of $39 doesn’t buy you too much these days. Maybe a pair of underwear, movie, mediocre dinner for two. However, Trinity Audio has been trying to convince the world that when it comes to premium audio – we’ve all been paying too much. The earbuds we’re reviewing today are the Trinity Hyperion. […]

Skylink SK-200 – Smart Home Security in One Box

Skylink has been designing home security kits in a box for several years. In fact, I personally own one of their older models (the SC-1000) that I purchased back in 2009. And you know what? I still use it and have no complaints. I don’t live in the worst neighborhood by any means, but it […]
