  • HMDX Jam Bedside Sound System

    HDMX Jam Micro USB radio and smartphone charger

    Here is my review on another cool piece of technology.  I recently bought the HDMX Jam bedside sound system.  This little device does more than just an alarm clock.  It also serves as a dock for your smartphone using a usb plug in the rear of the HDMX Jam.  The original reason I purchased this radio/smart phone charger was because I was looking to charge my smartphone at night and didn't want to over crowd my nightstand.  I narrowed down my search to two different units, the HMDX(model [...]
  • Mophie HTC One Case

    Mophie HTC One Case | Review

    Review of Mophie Case for HTC OneI really like this case and truly hope that they figure out what is going on with it. I have been through 3 different cases so far.

  • Nebo Redline Flashlight with Universal shotgun mount

    Nebo Redline Flashlight Review

    Nebo Redline Flashlight Review I know that this is a total departure to my normal internet related post but I have a really good explanation. Give me a chance to explain why I am doing a post on a Nebo Redline Flashlight. The short answer is that I am a bit of a "prepper". I like to buy things that have a survivalist attitude and lately my need for such gear has been at an all time high. I have been buying a lot of cool prepper items like guns, water filters and shortwave radios, the [...]

    Facebook video disabled

    Why did my Facebook disable my ability to upload a video?  Does this LOOK familiar?

    Google Plus Local Review

    Google Places vs Google+ Local I have been spending some time experimenting with the new Google+ Local feature.  This new feature has become the newest transformation of what was previously known as Google Places for businesses.At first I thought it was a bad move because Google Places was a very clean and easy to understand interface that allowed me to get good results for my clients.  However, I soon was able to see the wisdom in Google's move to Google Plus Local.  I truly [...]
