STM Convoy Review

stm convoy

STM Convoy When the Convoy arrived at my office, I felt like I was getting ready to suit up to jump out of a plane. It just had the feel of safe refuge that might want to make someone jump out of a perfectly operational plane. The Convoy is a 33 liter pack made of …

Wilson Electronics Sleek Review

I have to confess that when someone says the words “antenna booster” to me the first thing that comes to mind are those horrible stickers that some technical charlatan tried to pass off as effective if you stuck them on the back of your phone. You remember these crazy things, right? These were technical placebos …

Portenzo Wingback iPad Mini Book Case Review

There are a bazillion case options out there for iPads, but there is one thing they nearly all have in common…. They obviously contain an iPad. This means that when you absent-mindedly set your iPad down in a public place, as I am prone to do, it is screaming, “I’m an iPad, STEAL ME!” This …

Pocket Monkey Review

Pocket Monkey. Not Trunk Monkey. Not a Flingshot Screaming Monkey, or a sock monkey. Not even Jojo the Monkeyboy. Don’t Google that. Just trust me. Stick to Zootility’s Pocket Monkey, it is far more useful anyway. I’ve got this mildly twisted compulsion driven by watching MacGyver one too many times. It makes me really twitchy …

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.

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 …

Boddie Bows Smartwatch

boddie

While I was finishing up the review of someone else’s smart watch Boddie’s Indiegogo campaigncaught my eye. The Boddie seems to be a really good balance of form and function if they can follow through on the promise they are making. Notifications from Twitter and Facebook, pushed text messages and gesture based control of presentation …
