A Computer Keyboard That Fits On Your Keychain

Have you ever been somewhere with your cell phone – no computer – and really wanted a computer keyboard to type on? There have been a few times when I’ve been stuck typing out an entire blog post on my phone, with my thumbs. Not fun. But this laser keyboard might help. And while this […]


When To Put Duracell Batteries Into Gifts…And When Not To!

[The following post is sponsored by SheSpeaks and Duracell.] When I was a kid I loved gadgets (nope, nothing has changed!). If it was on my Christmas list, chances are it made noise, lit up, moved on its own, or all three. And for sure it needed batteries. Batteries that we never seemed to have […]


The Best Gift For Any TV Lover

[The following post is sponsored by TiVo, a company I love and am thrilled to be working with.] I’ve been lucky enough to work with TiVo for several years now, but my relationship with TiVo goes back much further than that. I remember reading a little article in a magazine – just a few sentences […]


A Take Anywhere, Water and Shock Proof Bluetooth Speaker

At this point there are so many portable Bluetooth speakers on the market that they all begin to blend together. They pretty much all have Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable batteries, and a jack for connecting non-Bluetooth speakers. So when choosing one you have to look for extras – what makes this one special, more useful than […]


Ion Sound Lounge: Bluetooth Speakers Disguised As Furniture

There are lots of bluetooth speakers on the market, but this is the first one I’ve been encouraged to sit on. The Ion Sound Lounge is a 2.1 speaker sound system. It looks like a foot stool and has a nice padded top, but inside there are two stereo speakers and a subwoofer. You can […]


10 Cool New Tech Products Available Now, Plus One Amazing One Available Next Year

Last night I attended Wine Dine & Demo, a consumer tech showcase. Also a place for tech media to get drunk and eat a lot of food – that’s the “Wine” and “Dine” part. Between the Eggplant Parmesan, cannoli, and Diet Cokes, I managed to see quite a few interesting products that are available for […]


The Amazing Things You Can Make At The MakerBot Store

The first time I’d ever heard of MakerBot was at my first Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (2009, maybe?). I stood at their booth for a really long time, transfixed by the 3D printer in front of me, producing a little toy, layer by almost-imperceptible layer. Those first 3D printers were actually DIY kits […]


Keyless Home Entry With The Touch Of A Finger

[The following post is sponsored by Kevo] When I was a child I was promised a lot of things for the future. Rocket cars were at the top of the list, and that hasn’t happened yet. We do have robots, but all they really do is vacuum our floors. That’s a far cry from a […]


Hands-On Impressions Of The Surface Pro 3

[The following post is sponsored by Microsoft] Last night I went to a Microsoft Store to play with the Surface Pro 3. I have some Surface experience – I own the 1st generation Surface RT. But they’re barely related. The Surface Pro 3 I used last night was basically a powerful laptop in the body […]


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 […]
