BlueFlame Just the Plug 2 Review

I have this thing about traveling light. I try to take what I really need rather than a stack of stuff that I might need. The logical extension of this is being able to travel to Miami for a week with only a ziplock baggie for luggage. I will get there someday. Oh yes, I …

Nomad ChargeKey Review

Ah, the life of a digital nomad. Making your way from coffee shop to bistro, setting up your office wherever you go. The only limitation…the endurance of your smart phone. No battery, no work. No work, no pay, No pay…no more coffee. Digital nomads need caffeine. You see what a horrible spiral that is. Of …

Kelty Ascender 22 Review

What do you do when you have a business trip planned but very rarely make trips by yourself? You can either use one of your daughter’s pink suitcases or, if you’re lucky like I am, you can ask your tech-savvy, world-travelling uncle if he has a bag to borrow. I have nothing against the color …

WaterField Finn Wallet Review

About 2 years ago I reviewed Waterfield’s iPhone wallet. I loved the functionality and the look of it…but my phone outgrew it or I would probably still be using it today. I actually got a bit misty when I unloaded it and put it in my drawer filled with the things that I can’t quite …

Phablets Galore

LG and Huawei have both added comically large phones to their arsenals at this CES. They join Samsung’s slightly smaller Note3 that began shipping last year. LG has quietly become a big player in the mobile market. The G series phones and pairing with Google to make the Nexus phones has put them squarely in …

CES2014 The Madness Begins

Arriving in Vegas a little early for CES has its merits. The press day begins in earnest early Monday morning, but I decided to pop in for CES Unveiled to pack a little extra research in before the full show opens. Benefit one: The cab line. Last year I arrived Monday morning to a madhouse …

New Day, New Year, New Attitude

There is nothing like the beginning of a New Year to encourage some deep introspection. Resolutions are really just tangible (read “prone to being broken”) examples of those intentions to start anew. They may be fleeting and transitory or they may lasting and impactful. But the process is healthy. Like the shedding of skin or …
