Review: NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Keypad

Back in my Costco days, I used to have to “ten key” regularly. I was the sales auditor for a short time period, which meant I had to enter a lot of numbers all day long. Using the top row of the keyboard would be a painfully slow process, so I used the numeric keypad on the large keyboard I had. I hadn’t used a numeric keypad in eons until I received a NewerTech Wireless Aluminum Keypad to review.

A Look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy GEAR

I’ve spent more time using Google products over the past few weeks, although not as much as I’d like in order to give a comprehensive review. One such product was the Android OS, primarily used on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that was provided to me as a review unit by one of Canada’s major

Review: The ioSafe N2

Review: Velodyne vQuiet Noise-Cancelling Headphones

I haven’t had a decent pair of over-ear headphones in a long time, and as a podcaster I really need one. The earbuds I’ve been using (the RHA) are great for a lot of things, but there’s nothing like having some more isolation when editing Mikes on Mics in a very busy household (or taking

Review: RHA MA450i Headphones

I’m spending more and more time with headphones in my ears these days, whether it’s because I’m editing Mikes on Mics (or the members-only Mike Techniques podcast) or because I’m spending time outdoors getting my run on. A good set of headphones can actually really help your productivity – especially if you like to listen

The Macworld Reviewables

After spending some time this week going through all of the items I brought back from Macworld, I’ve started to put together some thoughts on them. Over the next two weeks I’ll be writing reviews for many of the gadgets, books, and apps that I received during that time. Here are just some of the

Review: HAND Stylus

I’ll be up front about this: I’ve never really used a stylus with my iPad all that much. I own a Studio Neat Cosmonaut, and it has largely sat unused after the initial excitement of having it wore off (it’s a great product, just not my style – pun intended). I won a stylus at
