Google Chromecast Review

You have to love it when the technorazzi don’t see something coming and most of us were surprised when Google pulled the tiny Chromecast widget out of their bag of tricks along with the expected refresh of the Nexus 7. The Chromecast is not a radically new idea. Streaming across WiFi to an HDMI port …

Artiphon

I stumbled across the Artiphon Instrument 1 at Summer NAMM in Nashville and I have to say that I am intrigued. The Instrument 1 is a controller that uses the iPhone5 for its heart and soul and can be played guitar style or like a violin under your chin. A proprietary fingerboard has over the …

Aftershokz M2 Review

Aftershoks makes a series of headphones that rest on your cheekbones rather than in your ear and use that contact point to pass the sound into your inner ear. Why would you want to use them? There are a couple of reasons.

Foogle?

Well, I have to say that this was not what I expected FaceBook to announce today. “Graph Search” is their system to access the info that many of us use to make social decisions currently with FaceBook. Where do I want to eat FaceBook? Where do my friends like to hang out FaceBook? What is …

The Southern- A Restaurant Report

The Southern is an extension of the restaurant and catering company of Tom Morales. With brands like Loveless Cafe and Saffire and his own TomKats catering company it’s not like he has to prove anything to anyone. To me though, the Southern looks to be his way of making a statement.
