The ever running war on who has the best thumb drive or memory card, is always saturated with so many options to choose from. The benefit of this, is it helps keep the prices down where possible and allows for a wonderfully open and free market. The disadvantage, is that sometimes it can be hard to figure out which one of those many option suits you best. If speed is what you yearn for, then a lot of those options are null and void as a majority of what’s out there ranges between 30MB/s and 95MB/s (possibly even less if…

For those of you who read my review on last year’s Nintendo impossible to get Super NES Classic Edition system; Get ready to stand in line. Nintendo is releasing the Super Nintendo Classic Edition this year on September 29th. It will retail for $79.99 USD but per last year, if Nintendo doesn’t ship enough units, people are going to jack up the price before the holiday rush. Here’s where they get it right and where they learned from last year’s mistakes. This time, no hard to find second controller needed. The unit comes out of the box with two very…

Earlier this year at CES 2017, in Las Vegas, we met with a company with an interesting concept: Wireless charging in any object in your home or even outdoors. Backpacks, bowls, tables, etc. They are working to create an easy way to charge your gaming accessories, smartphone, smartwatch, your Bluetooth headphones (etc), anywhere you want with a simple device installed anywhere in your home. If you missed the interview with Humavox, here’s another look. Powercast is another player in wireless charging, who has also recently been given FCC approval to sell development kits to manufacturers of these types of devices.…

Adding one more thing to the list of odd things that have crossed my desk, it is time to start getting rid of those pesky flying bugs that won’t leave you alone, regardless of where you are. The Zapplight is an LED light bulb that contains a built-in bug zapper, allowing you to use it anywhere that allows you to screw in a typical light bulb (E26 type at least). We have seen numerous LED bulb combinations, including WiFi repeaters, speakers and cameras. Bug zappers however, is something new. I didn’t exactly know how to test something like this since…

In the latest addition to Amazon’s Alexa, available on various devices such as their own Amazon Echo lineup, SiriusXM has come to strengthen the already popular digital assistant with their powerful suite of streaming channels. SiriusXM offers a large lineup of channels that span a number of genres, including all of your favorite music options, as well as sports, news, celebrity hosts like Howard Stern, comedy, and more. Now all of this can be accessed by a simple voice command and streamed directly to your Amazon Alexa device. All you have to do is say “Alexa, play (channel) on SiriusXM”,…

Microsoft has announced their new Modern Keyboard, a familiar design that mimics their Surface Keyboard and looks surprisingly a whole lot like something from Apple (but who am I to judge). The new keyboard features a simple, and well, modern look (so the name really says it all), allowing it to both function well while also complimenting your desk’s layout. What sets this keyboard apart from the Surface Keyboard (or most any other keyboard for that matter), is the fact that they have added a fingerprint sensor in the form of a key. Conveniently nestled between the right-side alt and…

Yesterday I got an Email from Hulu informing me that their apps will no longer exist, nor work, on Sharp Smart TVs. Obviously the money is moving to other type devices like Roku, or Chromecast, or even gaming systems such as the PS4 or XBOX One. This is annoying because Hulu was free when I first got my Sharp Aquos 60 Inch HDTV. I upgraded to commercial free when it became an option for $11.99 a month, and yes, as a techy, I do have Roku. I have Chromecast units, I have smart Blu-ray players, and app supported video game consoles.…

This is round three of our stories centered around some of the latest headphones to come from the company beyerdynamic (made in Germany). Previously, we have covered their T51i on-ear model and their Custom One Pro Plus over-ear model. Now, we take a look at their Amiron Home headphones, one of their entry points for their audiophile selection. Now, this one is completely different from the other two we have covered, in both design and performance. The target audience is the audiophile community, thus you are supposed to be able to hook these up to something nice to drive them…

This is round two in this week’s look at some of beyerdynamic’s latest models, and what we have found ourselves to like about them. In our last article, we discussed their T51i on-ear headphones. Now we take a look at their Custom One Pro Plus headphones, an over the ear solution that really demands some attention. What feels like a more general pitch to a very large market of music enthusiasts, as well as streaming video and more, the Custom One Pro Plus headphones seem to deliver a very powerful sound stage comparable to some of our favorite Sennheiser solutions that typically…

It is now time to turn our focus over to one specific brand, hailing from Germany with so many years experience delivering popular headphones, microphones (and more): beyerdynamic. With three stories surrounding some of their latest headphones, we will bring them to you one at a time, and to begin with, we are going to discuss their T51i on-ear headphones. Marketed towards mobile users looking to bring their music with them on the go, the T51i headphones feature a smaller design that makes them ideal for travel. They are decently lightweight in design, despite the durable aluminum approach, and have…
