USPS Priority Mail Complaint

USPS Priority Mail Complaint

I have used the United States Postal Service’s “Click-N-Ship” system since May of 2005. I’ve purchased postage for almost 200 letters and packages.

Another Reason Why Tshirt Bordello Is Awesome

I like Tshirt Bordello a lot. They make some cool products, including the Weyland-Yutani company mug from the Alien franchise. When I placed an order for Sedagive? this Christmas, I noticed an additional field for Special Instructions. I typed in “would you please draw a squid fighting a Pegasus on my invoice?” They did.

Curio & Relic FFL Holder Change of Address Process Change?

I read stories on the Internet about changing my address as a Curio & Relic firearm collector license via a simple letter instead of a complicated, conflicting ATF form. I emailed the ATF to get the scoop, but I’m not convinced.

One of our Samsung Galaxy Nexus phones was stuck in a very long boot animation loading loop. Verizon Wireless told us to take it back to Costco, and the phone had some problems doing a factory reset.

Powered Portable Speaker Shootout

Powered Portable Speaker Shootout

I review three rechargeable powered portable speakers: iHome’s iHM60GT, the X-Mini II, and the Kinivo ZX100. They were all less than $20, and less than satisfactory.

Spartacus Season 3: Vengeance Sneak Peek

Andy Whitfield, star of the television show Spartacus, passed away on September 11th of 2011. His battle with cancer led to the “prequel” storyline of season two, with hopes that he would be able to return as the titular character in Season three. Despite a period of remission, Mr. Whitfield succumbed to the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. […]

AcuRite Digital Timer Review

AcuRite Digital Timer Review

I review the easy to use 535W digital timer by AcuRite. I wish the display was larger and the alarm a touch louder, but overall the timer does what I need it to do.
