SYRE iPod Nano Watch Case Adds Bluetooth for Wireless Headphones (video)

Evaporative Mist Indoor Fan Cools Like AC

Hot, sticky, and humid just about sums up the East coast of the United States during the summer months.  It's an uncomfortable climate that just about permanently relegates you to an AC only world, unless of course you're looki...

Apple Mac Mini Vs. Samsung Chromebox (comparison)

I hereby coin the term: "Invisi-PC". It's not quite in the cloud, but it's so small--it's hardly there at all.  The term "desktop" seems to apply less and less to the modern computer, as manufacturer solutions continue to lose ...
