ATT has it’s first Android based phone, the HTC Lancaster.  The HTC Lancaster has a 2.8″ touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.0, A-GPS, 3 Megapixel camera, and USB 2.0 connectivity.  The Gadget King is waiting to see what price point they will announce, hope it is cheaper than the iPhone and the Palm Pre. “It’s lined up for a full six months of...

Look out iPhone – here comes the G1 Android phone. ...

Looks like the Androids are starting to hit the market… T-Mobile unveiled the G1 Android phone.  The G1 has a 480×320 HVGA screen, 3G, 3.1 megapixel camera, and a 5 hour (talk time) battery. Annoying bits – no video capture (wake up folks… iPhone is super guilty of this as well), no stereo bluetooth, requires a Gmail account (another...

Just like cameras, the best drone is the one you have with you. Most of them tend to be sitting at home due to the lack of portability. While DJI has made strides with their Spark, the controller is another item you have to lug around. While I am pretty confident that if I could fast forward a few more years the technology will be better, smaller, and cheaper. For now we have just a few high quality smaller options. The latest GDU quadcopter, the GDU 02, has made some nice strides. My favorite feature is the fact that the copter and...

If you are a gadget junkie or live in a household that can’t seem to standardize on iOS or Android phones then this might be your new cable. The J2CC Multi Charging 3-in-1 USB Cable ($9.99) comes with three options – Lightning, Micro USB, and USB Type C. It is 4.5-feet long and wrapped in braided nylon for some extra strength.    Compatibility: -Dual 8 pin lightning ports: iPhone 5...

If you have any nostalgia for the 1985 Teddy Ruxpin this might be on your radar. If you have no idea what Teddy Ruxpin is, let me fill you in. Simply put he was a teddy bear that had a moving mouth/eyes, speaker, and a cassette player built inside of it. That is it. The new 2017 Teddy Ruxpin now has bluetooth, (arguably creepy) LCD eyes, a free iOS and Android app, and three built-in stories. ...

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.  ...

There are quite a few options available for monitoring your heart rate but this might be the best. The Kardia Portable EKG ($99) can get a medical-grade EKG in about 30 seconds by simply placing your fingertips on the sensors. Great for a quick check to see if your heart rhythm is normal of if atrial fibrillation is defected. The sensor not only monitors your heart rate (via an iOS or Android app) but it can also store it for sharing with your doctor. Video of the Kardia in action after the break. ...

Electric bikes aren’t exactly cheap. Heck, you probably already have a dust covered bicycle sitting in the garage. The Electron Wheel ($799) is a 30 second upgrade that will make your existing bicycle and electric one. The Electron Wheel is a quick front wheel swap that offers a 250W motor, speeds of up to 20-mph, and a 30-mile range. It even connects to your smartphone so that you can let it know when to assist you with some electric power. An all-in-one solution for converting your traditional bicycle into an electric, pedal-assist...

There is no shortage of screen protector options for just about every smartphone on the market. How do you choose one over the other? Some have rounded edges, some are tinted, some are inexpensive, and some claim to be ultra-tough. So many choices. Well the IN1 Nano Shield ($19.95) has one big claim to fame, it is in the “tough” category. Read on for my review of the IN1 Nano Shield for...
