As we carry more and more gadgets around that are battery powered, it seems inevitable that we will find ourselves in desperate need of an outlet on occasion. A great example of this is all of the people tethered to wall outlets at the airport. One great solution to this addiction to power is the ChargeTech Portable Battery Pack With AC Outlet...

If you are going to be snapping a bunch of Snapchat videos, maybe you don’t want to use your phone over and over. Put on a pair of Snapchat Spectacles (ignore the snickering) and tap the button and the glasses automatically film a ten-second video. That ten-second video is then wirelessly sent to your phone and uploaded to the cloud. There...

I personally do not like wearing “outdoor” shoes inside of the home. That pretty much means that any shoes that touch the ground outside of the house don’t go inside. Think of all the nasty stuff that we walk on day-t0-day. Who wants to track that nastiness back into the house? Not me. That also means I run around the house barefoot, in socks, or slippers.

Motorcycle gear continues to improve. One piece of gear which, in my opinion, hasn’t improved much is the motorcycle helmet. Sure, they have improved the aerodynamics and aesthetics but they are still quite loud on the inside. Wind and engine noise are still quite loud whether I wear my Arai or Shoei. Both brands aren’t cheap and I have to wear earplugs to make my rides bearable. Well the folks at Sena have come out with a helmet that claims to control the noise. First, a bit about Sena. They make some great Bluetooth systems...

GoPro has had a tough year, or two, as more and more competitors have been coming out with solid action cameras. Things look to have just turned around for GoPro. It looks like they have been quietly working hard on their latest GoPro 5 camera and an entirely new Drone dubbed the Karma. When I saw that GoPro was getting into the “drone” business my first reaction was “not another drone”. After lifting the covers, I am quite impressed. It looks like GoPro did...
