iClever 6-Port Fast USB Desktop Charger Review

One of the downsides of being a tech nerd is keeping all those devices charged up. Until a few months ago, I maintained a collection of power strips and USB wall adapters, which I had setup in a few places – my bedside table, my office at work, and a …

Intocircuit 2nd Gen Power Castle Portable Power Bank Review

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of portable power banks. My first one came from Proporta, and I dearly loved it. While I was working at RadioShack, I had the chance to test out at least a dozen different models there, and am known to travel with no …

Wednesday Watch: From Acorn To Tree

Timelapse is a wonderful invention, enabling us to get the “big picture” of things that normally would take seemingly forever to unfold. This video shows the growth of an oak tree, starting with the lowly acorn.  

Wednesday Watch: Norm Macdonald Says Goodbye to Letterman

Spotify’s New Personalization Could Be Awesome

The big news today is that Spotify is not only adding video content, but also a much more personalized music experience for its users. Mobile music is something I’ve been obsessed with ever since I bought an iPod Classic years ago to bring my entire music collection on the go. I …

Wednesday Watch: The Last Goodbye

All these years later, after both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit trilogy, it’s fun to go back and revisit these movies. What better way to do so than with a song sung by Pippin himself? The Last Goodbye, as sung by Billy Boyd (who played Pippin) …

Wednesday Watch: Best. Tree. Swing. EVER.

It’s official: the “tree swing” ante has been upped. Officially, don’t try this at home. Unofficially, I fully expect at least 3 of you to not only try this yourselves, but to spend some time trying to figure out how to make it even better. And I sincerely hope you’ll …

Wednesday Watch: If I Die On Mars

The Mars One mission is an excursion currently being planned by a non-profit that offers 4 people a one-way ticket to Mars in the future. Reading that statement, you’re probably wondering, “why on earth would someone volunteer for a one-way trip to another planet?” Thanks to The Guardian, you can kind of …

Wednesday Watch: The Landing

Today’s Wednesday Watch is a bit longer, but it’s really good. Edward’s dad has died, but the question has begged him to answer it for years – exactly what was it that landed on the farm, and how did his dad’s reaction to it change history forever?

Wednesday Watch: White God

Forget apes – see what happens with the pending canine uprising. Viva la revolution!

Wednesday Watch: We Were Not Made For This World

If you make this fullscreen and really sink into it, the narrator could easily be talking about you or me, as well.

Wednesday Watch: Lost Cubert

For all you cube-monkeys out there, sometimes, this is how you feel, amirite?

Wednesday Watch: Shoot For The Moon

We tell people to ‘shoot for the moon’, but has anyone ever tried it? This poor astronaut has, and it doesn’t go well.

Wednesday Watch: Death and the Robot

On a dying world, the cloaked personification of Death and a robot have one thing in common: They’re both extremely bored. But when they finally dare to come out of hiding and meet one another, they change not only each other, but their world.

Thoughts On Smartwatches

11 months agoTechnology / Mobile : Symbian Guru

I used my first smartwatch in 2008, reviewing the Sony MBW-150 (made by Fossil). It was a simple watch, essentially a ‘normal’ watch with a small LCD display embedded in the face, which would scroll various messages from my smartphone. My second smartwatch, the Pebble, was bought years later, in …
