Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

UE MEGABOOM Electric Blue2

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Review

- - 1 Comment

Remember Ultimate Ear’s BOOM Bluetooth speaker?  Well the company is back with a new Bluetooth speaker, except this time it’s bigger and better than before.   It’s called the UE MEGABOOM and I was given an early production unit to nab the UE MEGABOOM Review. First things first: the UE MEGABOOM is dimensionally about twice...

Droid Turbo - 3

Motorola DROID Turbo Review

- - 0 Comments

The first “Droid” phone launched more than 5 years ago.  October 17th 2009 to be exact (at least according to Wikipedia). I don’t remember much about the first iteration – probably because I was still drooling over my iPhone – but I do recall the name.  And that name, “Droid”,...

2014 Audi A6 TDI Diesel Review

- - 0 Comments

If you’re looking for a smooth ride, off the line power, excellent gas mileage, and European styling, look no further than Audi’s A6 TDI. Honestly, I have’t driven, or really ridden in a diesel powered car since I was kid.  We owned a diesel Mercedes and the engine noise and...

Breathometer Breeze Breathalyzer Review

Driving drunk is for the birds.  Meaning you’d be an idiot to do so, especially in this day and age of Uber and Lyft.  But let’s face it.  We’ve all done it: head to the a bar or restaurant, plan on having just one and end up slugging back three or...

G-Project G-Drop Speaker Review

- - 1 Comment

Still got some holiday shopping to do?  Then you might wanna consider G-Project’s G-Drop speaker.  It costs $50, and for the money you probably won’t do much better.  Why? First off, it’s IPX7.  That means waterproof.  I took mine in the shower where I was able to use the built-in...

Blendtec Designer 725 Blender Review

- - 0 Comments

Thanks to a YouTube channel called “Will it Blend“, millions are familiar with Blendtec’s offering: an ultra powerful blender that will chomp just about anything to shreds, including iPhones and wood planks.  But few have used one, largely because of their seemingly high price tag that exceeds $300.  Yes, $300 for a...

Une Bobine iPhone Lightning Cable Review

- - 0 Comments

Rarely would I write about a charging cable.  But the Une Bobine is anything but just that.  Yes, it will charge just about any mobile device.  But what makes it unique is its cord.  Or in this case, flexible cord. First off, the Une Bobine comes in a variety of flavors.  And...

Click and Grow Smart Herb Garden Review

- - 0 Comments

So if I had to be honest, I’ve been sitting on this review for a while.  And not because I’m lazy, but…well, partially because I’m lazy.  But because I wasn’t sure how to close the loop on the review of Click and Grows Smart Herb Garden.  You see, I got...
