Today we are giving Klipsch a review with it’s flagship RF-7II Reference Series Home Theater Speaker System. This is a system that we didn’t have to buy to test thankfully as we can only afford to purchase so many things to review forcing us to limit such reviews to things we buy for around the office…or for when one of us buys something personally for our home and everyone shows up at once (uninvited), so that we can all experience the rush together and write some reviews about it!  We visited 3 different sample theaters with this system setup and took…

(Note: this is a living article, updated periodically as technology progresses) We all know that the best way to save on bills is to decrease your usage of energy. Energy efficiency has become a very popular topic these days which has resulted in many ways to save money at home. This article/review/tip is meant to add to the many great resources out there in helping you achieve just this (I’ll also try to provide as many example/product links as possible to make things easy). Hold onto your seat as this ride is a long one and very informative. Starting with…

Have you ever asked yourself “could I live without cable?” Sometimes, the more you thought about it, the more you may be able realize that you hardly watch TV at all, and when you do…you don’t really pay much attention to it. Now, that doesn’t cover everyone as there are some channel jumpers that watch every single episode of a handful of various series. Those people never leave the house…a slave to TV. The others though, keep TV for background noise,  only watch an episode here and there and save movies for dvds, blu-ray or are willing to look for…

What is the fastest USB flash drive for 2013? Well….as of August at least…. Someone brought us a 64GB ADATA Elite UE700 USB 3.0 flash drive and explained to us that it was the fastest USB flash drive on the market. That was quite the claim, so that triggered a need for a test. We gave the little drive a crash test to see what kind of average readings we could get. Was it fast? Oh yes, it was indeed. Our average transfer speeds were 190-198MB/s read and 85-90MB/s write. That’s not too bad for a flash drive compared to recent years.…

M801d-A3R We had the luxury of being able to sit down with one of these bad boys to give it a shot to see how it compares to the competition, o see if it lives up to the hype Vizio has created around it, and to see if we would be tempted to buy one ourselves. First, I have to say we were impressed. There has been a lot of talk lately about the Sharp 80″ LED TV and 90″ LED TV, and although we liked what we saw with those, we were not impressed by the price vs quality.…

Seagate recently launched their new 4TB drives and boy do they fall into the category of both affordable and functional. We had the honor of being able to try out some of these new drives and were amazing at what we found. The performance of these drives was great providing speeds that any PC user could benefit from. We were able to transfer large loads of information to them quickly and the drives maintained good temperatures as well through-out the process. By large loads of information, I mean we stress tested the “crap” out of these drives. The internal 4TB…

Author: Laura Lake There is no debate online customer reviews are important whether you are selling a product or offering a service. We know that consumers look to friends, family and even strangers for feedback and recommendations on services and products. They trust word of mouth marketing. We use the internet to research before we buy, so what people say online matters and influence whether or not someone purchases from you. The digital world has made information readily available, there are even applications that allow us to scan a bar-code and get immediate feedback. We want to know what others have…

Author: Laura Lake There was a day that when it came to local business getting ranked in search engines they faced challenges because they were competing with strong national brands. It was tough to get that first page listing unless you had a master search engine optimization guru working on your side. While today we still face many challenges with search engines one thing is true it’s getting easier to get local businesses listed on the front page of search engines, but you must be strategic. Statistics always motivate me, perhaps the case for you as well. Take a look…

Congress is meeting on the idea of passing a bill that would force sales tax onto online purchases. This would effect everyone from large corporations like Amazon to simple users/sellers on ebay who are looking to simply make a few dollars. eBay’s John Donahoe (President and CEO) has reached out with a letter and an option to make it easy to share your opinion against the matter with your local politicians taking all the world out of it. You simply digitally sign it and they send everything for you. No cost, no stress, no worry. It is also backed up…
