Amazon continues with their quest to take over the world. Their latest product is a camera named the Amazon Echo Look ($200). After watching the Echo Look informational video, I realize that I am clearly not the target market. This isn’t a security camera but more of a wardrobe helper. Ok? Amazon Echo is still built-in so you can ask about the weather,...

The Elago M4 ($35) is the coolest place to have your iPhone 6, 6s, or 7 hanging out while at your desk. It transforms your iPhone into a vintage Macintosh computer of sorts. The iPhone can be charged while in the stand and the volume buttons are still easily accessible. Perfect for the Apple groupie in your life.    ...

This mammoth RC truck, the Mammuth Rewarron, is somewhere between a UTV and a go-kart. It is over 6.5-feet long, weighs 375-pounds, and is powered by a single cylinder 4-stroke 270cc engine. Not sure where it is made but I believe it is from Hungary. Price tag = $5,500. Having something this big that I have to walk next to to take it to the park seems awesome, but not perfect. If only the Rewarron was just a bit bigger, then I could ride it around a bit. I’m not hoping to replace...

This is a deal that, most likely, won’t last. Just $4.99 (plus free shipping) for a 5-port USB smart charger with 40W of power. Smart chargers work by identifying each individual device plugged-in and giving them the proper charging power. They are also great for minimizing the use of multiple wall outlets and sharing charging power with family/friends. The only downside I see is that it is orange. ...

Your dog needs hydration just as much as you do, maybe more, so keep them in mind on your next outing. This gadget, the Highwave AutoDogMug ($20), makes it easy for both the owner and the pup. The water bowl fills up when you squeeze the bottle.

Video of this awesome doggy water bottle after...

Want to drink your cold beer without being harassed or ticketed? The Trinken Lid ($14) snaps on to your beer can and suspends it inside of large t0-go coffee cup from the likes of Starbucks, 7-Eleven, etc… Not only does this hide your beer but it also provides a layer of insulation to help keep it colder, longer. By suspending your beer inside the cup, the layer of air insulates your can, keeping it cold in the summer and your hands warm in the winter.  On a hot...

The “ugly Christmas sweater” parties are about to get next-level-epic now that you can have your own industrial sweater knitting machine, the Kniterate ($4,600). I know, the price is a tad crazy but you could split it amongst friends and get years of custom sweaters. The Kniterate Knitting Machine can take just about an design you can think of and convert it into a hideous work of art. ...

Let me start off with a bit of spoiler alert – both boards are great and the comparisons are tough to do in an apples-to-apples fashion. With that said, let’s discuss the merits of both the Boosted Boards Dual+ (with extended battery) and the Evolve Skateboards Carbon GT. Read on for details. ...

The compact camera market  has taken a beating from an unlikely place, the smartphone. As smartphone cameras continue to improve, many folks now use them as their main shooter. The one thing missing is a good digital zoom. Canon’s latest compact camera hopes to fill that void with a small form factor and a big 40x zoom lens. The compact PowerShot SX730 HS ($399) offers a focal range equivalent to...
