The latest announcement and unveiling is of the Segway Apex which will have a top speed of 125 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds. Other than those specs, much is unknown. ...

Looks like the Stator Fat Wheel Electric Scooter (Launch Edition) is finally available for pre-order. Let’s get the obvious good bits out of the way – this scooter looks amazing, it has a range of up to 80 miles, a top speed of 30 mph, disc brakes, fat tires, a slick handlebar display, and LED lighting. Looks great. Let’s hope this thing performs as good as it looks because the marketing material smells a bit fishy. Here are some of my cringe-worthy favorites. Engineering is an art and we’re perfecting it …world’s...

For most, this post will not apply. For those with trucks and trailers – this is a game-changer. Gone are the days of having to hardwire a clunky brake controller inside of your tow vehicle. The Curt 51180 Echo plugs into your standard 7-way connector and communicates with your smartphone via an app. From the Curt Echo app, you can control brake sensitivity, braking power, and store several profiles. This setup becomes super powerful for...

You can now get up to 512GB of data on a tiny MicroSD card. Impressive. The sweet spot for price-per-GB is the 400GB version, in this case, from SanDisk. The SanDisk SDSQUAR-400G-GN6MA 400GB MicroSDXC (46.99). Not sure what to get someone for Christmas – storage never hurt. ...

It is like the car was ready to load on a delivery truck and they forgot that it needed a place for the front license plate so they just slapped one on. Most vehicle license plate brackets are ugly, bulky, and sometimes they even rattle.

Well, for once, our California politicians approved some decent laws (SB806, SB1399, SB1387, and AB1614) and are allowing license plate decals. Assuming you make it through the DMV bureaucracy.

My life just got a bit better thanks to this new product – The NECA Bob Ross 8-Inch Action Figure ($46).

Some folks have a picture of their kids on their desk, phooey, my desk will have a Bob Ross action figure (once it arrives). ...

If you watch the Silicon Valley tv show, you likely have seen Russ Hanneman, the billionaire tech titan portrayed by Chris Diamantopoulos. Well, the show continues with its good humor by launching a batch of their own tequila –  Tres Comas Añejo Tequila to “re-billionize his bank account.” This is the “only tequila acceptable for billionaires,” and even has a bottle top in the shape of a comma. This tequila is made...

The Chinese government has banned the use of US-made technology at all government institutions and public bodies. This process of purging US-made tech will take place between now and 2022. Trade wars and nationalism at this level rarely have the desired effect but I think we are too far down this road. I already make an effort to avoid buying items made in China. Mainly because I believe too much...

Normally I prefer roasting or BBQing outdoors, but this is definitely an exception because s’mores smell so damn good. The Nostalgia SMM200 Indoor Electric Stainless Steel S’more Maker ($30) is perfect for some indoor s’more cooking. Also, with the cold weather of late this may be my only option if I want some of these tasty goodies.   ...
