Ten More Top Nintendo 3DS Games

Ten Tech-Related Things I Hate

Certain things about technology make me mental.  I constantly get asked, “What is your problem with x?” or “Why do you hate y?”  I figured it would save time if I could just link to an article that explain what makes me crazy about tech-related services and concepts. This is the mind-numbing technology that I…

I love my Nexus 10 Android tablet.  It wasn’t my first tablet – nor will it be my last.  I love everything about it – I love the size, the weight, the battery life.  I use it for almost everything.  I watch media on it.  I game on it.  I read on it.  Heck, I’ll…

Every year, our power needs grow. Tablets get bigger, phones get more needy. Portable power is pretty much a must for anyone travelling or for someone that works away from a power source all day.

HooToo 3-in-1 Wireless Router/NAS/Power Bank (HT-TM01)

After my review of the RAVPOWER WiFi Disk/Power Bank (RP-WD01) I was asked to take a look at another, similar product, the HT-TM01 (from now on, just HT) – this time the promise of actual ROUTER ability was added, making this device useful in all new situations.

Taotronics Bluetooth Speaker TT-SK01

I wasn’t really in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, but my wife was interested in something for her classroom.  Something small, cheap, portable and easy to use – something she could take to school (she’s a teacher) and use to listen to music when class isn’t in session.  Since her students have light fingers,…

Google’s “Breakfast with Sundar” Wrapup

RAVPOWER WiFi Disk/Power Bank (RP-WD01)

I can barely contain myself long enough to write this review.  For the longest time I’ve been searching for the ultimate, portable solution for storage for my non-microSD slot Nexus phones and tablets.

X-Plore File Manager (Android)

File management is not a part time gig for me. If there is a storage medium attached to the device I’m using? I want the most power possible in accessing and manipulating it. It doesn’t matter if it is a local drive, flash drive, network drive, FTP site, Google Drive … if it stores files,…

Review: Pocket Tanks (Android)

Artillery games are nothing new … Set your angle. Compensate for the wind. Set your power. Hit fire. Give an evil chuckle when you hit your enemy. Wash, rinse and repeat. In fact, before Solitaire became the “installed on every computer” go-to game, some form of Artillery was pre-installed on most computers (or at least…
