Will A FitBit Change Your Life?

I bought a FitBit Flex about a month ago. I seemed to be the only person I knew who wasn’t walking around with some kind of tracker on, so now I’ve joined the club. I’m not doing the FastDiet right now and not training for any races until the end of the  month, so I […]

[I received this product from Actiontec in order to facilitate this review.] I don’t think I’ve ever been in a house that didn’t have WiFi dead spots.

Randomosity: Deep Fried Tech edition

This is just weird. It’s so bizarre I can’t decide if I like it or not. Basically, it’s art in the form of battering and deep-frying gadgets. I’m leaning toward liking it, because I get a sick satisfaction from seeing so many Apple products destroyed by hot oil. See more of them at Cool Hunting. […]

Headphones that feel as good as they sound

My husband, son and I have been fighting over a pair of Sol Republic Tracks headphones since they arrived from the company for me to review a few weeks ago. At a retail cost of around $100 they would be a fantastic gift for someone in your life who really appreciates good sound. Luckily I […]
