RYOBI 24V Trimmer Review

- - 4 Comments

[rating:5/5] I’ve used a big and bulky gas powered weed eater for years now, and while it gets the job done, I’m the only one that can get it started.  The kids and my girlfriend either don’t understand the concept of “Choke”, or they just can’t pull the cord right...

Macbook Air

Apple Macbook Air 13″ (2011) 1.8GHz Review

- - 23 Comments

[Rating: 4.5] Ordinary laptops no longer apply to the general public. Apple has made that clear by eliminating the Macbook line and promoting the Macbook Air to take its place. Thin and light is what’s in. To Apple, the future of mobile computing for the everyday consumer is portability, functionality,...

Prius Concept Bike-1

Toyota Prius Project Concept “PXP” Bike (video)

- - 0 Comments

A bike that shifts gears using your mind…ludicrous, right? Think again. Toyota Prius Projects teamed up with Boston-based Parlee Cycles to do a 10-week build and actually created a concept bike that shifts gears at only the thought. Parlee Cycles’ involvement is part of a series of design and technology...

Laying your head to rest in a foreign place can be down right nerve racking.  While you may know where you are, entrusting that your surrounding, or more explicitly the neighborhood your rented that apartment in, isn’t rife with thugs just waiting to kick down your door, is a completely...

Zipppo Gun

Zippo Gun Fires 4mm Bullets for Real

- - 1 Comment

If you thought the Cube Gun was James Bond certified, you should have reserved judgment until you laid your eyes on the Zippo Gun.  Some nut case has managed to convert the fire starting device into a real live shooting gun, though we haven’t been able to verify the latter...

Porsche Design P’6520 Compass Watch

- - 0 Comments

Pops always said never do anything for just one reason.  He must have been rapping his game over at the Porsche Design shop, because their P’6520 Compass Watch embodies that exact philosophy. On the outside, like a standard watch, it displays three arms, conveying the hour, minute and seconds. However,...

Sony Cyber-shot TX55

Sony Cyber-shot TX55 Digital Camera

- - 0 Comments

Mythical technology or real thing?  That’s the question that has always loomed around those movies that depict investigators zooming into a photo and “enhancing” the persons face, despite the fact that the resolution has already been set.  However, Sony’s newest camera, the Cyber-shot TX55 offers something like that.  They’re calling...

Gerber Steady

Gerber Steady Multi-tool Stabs Joby in the Back

- - 0 Comments

Joby has long been regarded as the portable tripod company.   Their first product was a tripod with those lovable bendy legs that seemed to wrap themselves around just about anything, provided of course it wasn’t a sequoia.   Over the years they’ve released a variety of products based on that...

Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B Review

- - 2 Comments

[rating:4/5] I have been interested in trying out a pair of active noise cancelling headphones for a while now – my house has two teenage girls, my young son, five dogs, and a Macaw that enjoy giving me headaches on a daily basis. When I’m in an online conference of...

Echo Small

Kyocera Echo Review

- - 0 Comments

[rating:3.5/5] For me, a full blown tablet is nice real estate wise, but it can be tedious to type on. By contrast, a smart phone is nice and handy for thumb pecking out email and posts to Facebook, but the screen is so darn small. If only there could be...
