[rating:5/5] If you’ve been paying any attention to things happening in the world of mobile technology, you probably know what MHL is. If not, maybe you just bought a new phone and are wondering “what the heck is this extra port for?”. Fear not, because Kanex (and I) are here...

RYOBI One+ 10″ Lituium 18v Chain Saw Review

- - 0 Comments

[rating:4/5] When I first saw this little thing, I wanted to laugh; this dinky chain saw was supposed to actually work?  I had used gas chain saws before, and I had used electric chain saws – both to varying results – but a battery operated one?  Never.  Now, I have...

iHome SD63 Soundesign Retro Headphones Review

- - 0 Comments

[rating:3/5] Every now and then I’m struck with a bit of nostalgia – I’m surrounded daily by high tech gizmos and gadgets, and I just want to remember the simpler times. I just want to go and find a record player and a pair of Hi-Fi faux wood grain speakers,...

Kodak PlayFull Review (video)

- - 1 Comment

[rating:4/5] With the death of the Flip cam earlier this year, there’s a specific void that’s been needed to be filled. While the market for an ultra-compact video camera isn’tthe biggest out there (otherwise Flip would still be a thing), there is most certainly a niche audience that use and...

Targus Laptop Desk with Storage Review

- - 0 Comments

[rating:3.5/5] Most of us that use our laptops on our, ehem, laps know that there’s a delicate balance between finding something comfortable for the laptop to sit on, and not obstructing the fan vents.  Trying to sit a laptop on a pillow for example will quickly cause it to overheat;...

Dyson Air Multiplier Review

- - 5 Comments

[rating:4/5] It was just a few years ago that Dyson broke out into the mainstream, touting new wind tunnel technology and telling us all how our current vacuum cleaners were next to worthless. A lot of people scoffed at the design, but a quick look at store shelves today shows...

V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Review

- - 4 Comments

[rating:4.5/5] V-MODA is a company that understands style. The way they blend form and function makes their products look sleek and sexy, and the Crossfade M-80 is no exception. From the moment you cut the red ribbon to get into the box (yes, a red ribbon), you get the sense...

Cocoon Central Park Professional Backpack Review

- - 2 Comments

[rating:4.5/5] When I first put up the post announcing the availability of this new Cocoon backpack, I was impressed by the different innovations it sported.  While I may have wondered if it was worth the price (and at least one commenter wondered about the durability), they sent me one to...

Tamron 18-270mm PZD B008 Lens Review

- - 6 Comments

[rating:4.5/5] First off, the complete name for the lens is the “Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (B008) Lens” – while I didn’t mean to offend anyone by shortening it, that’s a bit too much for the title.  At any rate, for those who don’t know already, Tamron is...

BodyMedia Fit BW Review

- - 6 Comments

[rating:4/5] After my review of the FitBit, I received a good number of emails from readers (and plenty more messages on Facebook) asking me to take a look at the BodyMedia Fit system.  Made by the same people that make the BodyBugg (the little device that The Biggest Loser made...

Weber Q140 (with cart) Review

- - 0 Comments

[rating:4/5] I’ve used more than my fair share of grills throughout the years – wood burners, coal, and propane. I have stayed away from electric grills (like the George Foreman) like the plague. I can’t really explain the reason – I mean I’m strongly against electric heat on my stove...
