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...

If you have an iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, or 6S Plus and are on the latest version of iOS (9.3 and up) then you might want to read on. If not, reboot your Android phone and move on. 😉 AT&T’s WiFi calling service allows iOS 9.3 users to make and receive calls while traveling abroad. No need to activate and pay for an expensive international calling plan. Just make sure you are in range...

If you are one of the lucky few who have had the luxury of racing around on a 2-stroke dirtbike then you know how much fun they are. Better than drugs. Better than video games. One of the downsides of the traditional dirt bike is that they are loud. Loud often draws too much attention from angry neighbors or Johnny Law. Read on for the latest pair of electric motorcycles from Italy. ...

Caterpillar is at it again with another rugged phone. Remember the B100? Well their latest phone, the Cat S60, is more than just tough. The Cat S60 is the first smartphone with an integrated FLIR thermal camera. This makes finding water leaks, insulation issues, and potential electrical problems much easier. The casing is Mil Spec 810G and is waterproof up to 5-meters and can take a drop from 1.8-meters. The touchscreen is 7-inches and can handle wet fingers and gloves. Now if only it wasn’t on Android. ...

Another fitness band. But wait, this one is pretty cool. Misfit isn’t new to the game and already makes a great tracker with a pretty good sleep tracking algorithm. For me, sleep tracking is just as important as activity tracking. So what makes the Misfit Ray stand out? A stylish aluminum design that look more like jewelry than a calculator-watch. A battery (three 393 button cell batteries...

When I think of Epson, I think of printers. Looks like Epson wants to change that with their latest product the Runsense SF-110, a GPS fitness tracking watch. The Epson Runsense SF-110 is merging the traditional fitness (running) tracking with a GPS for accurate location and distance information. The SF-110 measures calories burned, pace, time, laps, altitude, distance, steps, and more. Colors include black, green, and bright blue. The watch also synchs up with iOS and Android devices via the Epson Run Connect app. The best part is the...

Apparently the hottest mobile game of the hour (for iOS and Android) is Fallout Shelter by Bethesda. Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter has bypassed King’s Candy Crush Saga in revenue on the iTunes App Store. According to SuperData Research, Fallout Shelter has generated $5.1 million in just the first two weeks. I guess I will have to download it and give it a shot. Will keep you updated if it changes my life. ...

This post is aimed at the contractor or construction folks amongst us. Tools, and in this case batteries, tend to disappear at job sites. Whether the batteries are accidentally taken or are outright theft really doesn’t matter. Either way, you are out a very expensive and important battery. Enter the DeWalt 20V Max 2.0/4.0 Amp Bluetooth Batteries (DCB203BT and DCB204BT). These new bluetooth batteries pair with Apple and Android phones (and tablets) via a Tool Connect App. This allows the owner to control the batteries remotely...

Sena has been making great motorcycle helmet intercoms and entertainment systems for a while now. I currently own the SMH10D-11 set and really enjoy being able to have music streaming from my phone to the helmet. It is also quite handy for communicating with my friends via the intercom while on rides or taking phone calls. Sounds like a bad idea I know. The first 2 minutes of every phone call is me arguing with the person on the other end of the line. They never believe me that I am actually riding a motorcycle on the freeway. The Sena...

Finally, a heart rate monitor that will be both accurate and comfortable. Well, at least that is the promise of FitLinxx with their AmpStrip. Read on for details. ...
