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."

Samsung Gear 2-003

Samsung Gear 2 Review


The wearable space is exploding.  But that goes with out saying.  In fact, Gadget Review and Techzulu just wrapped our first wearable event.  We had an assortment of exhibitors on hand, including Melon, Muse, and others.  Unfortunately, Samsung declined to attend, though that didn’t stop us from showing off their...

BlueAnt Pump HD Sport Bluetooth Headphone Review


Call me nitpicky, but I hate corded headphones…when I work out.  So enter the BlueAnt’s Pump HD Sportbuds.  Unveiled in March, these headphones underwent three years of development, include Kevlar (yes, the same stuff in bulletproof vests) and promise exceptional sound despite being wireless.  So are they any good?  In...
