Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor Review

Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor Review

Way back when I used to live in Virginia, something magical would happen about once a month. I’d take off almost all of my clothes in front of another guy and he’d pinch me gently all over my body. Meaning, my friend and personal trainer Yoda would use calipers to measure my body fat. I […]

Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate Review

We bought the Easy Step Walk Thru baby gate by Regalo to keep dogs out, but its automatic latch system is a pain for grownups with full hands.

Cap Barbell Kettlebell Review

At less than $1/lb, the Cap Barbell kettlebell is a good bargain, but has an odd shape in the handle that might bother some.

Samsung Galaxy Qi Wireless Charging Pad Review

Samsung Galaxy Qi Wireless Charging Pad Review

The 2013 version of the Nexus 7 (Nexus 7.2) Android tablet has many advantages over its predecessor. It’s thinner, more powerful, has longer battery life, etc. One thing I’ve come to love about it is support for the Qi wireless inductive power standard, which allows you to charge devices without plugging them in. We have […]

Blade-Tech S&W M&P Shield KLIPT and Nano Holster Comparison

Blade-Tech S&W M&P Shield KLIPT and Nano Holster Comparison

We’ve owned Smith & Wesson Shield handguns for about two months. The ultra compact single stack 9mm pistol is easier to conceal than our usual Glock 19s. The problem has been finding good holsters for appendix carry. Most people carry their handguns behind their hip on their dominant hand side. I prefer to carry on […]

Jawbone UP Biometrics Band Review

Sedagive? likes tracking her physical activity and food intake. She’s tried several methods for doing this, including paper, spreadsheets, numerous Web sites, and Android apps. A lot of people at my current employer are very active. One of my co-workers had a sleek black band on his wrist. “Hey dude, what’s that?” I asked. “It’s […]

Surefire Ear Pro Sonic Defenders Hearing Protection Review

Surefire Ear Pro Sonic Defenders Hearing Protection Review

I review the Surefire Sonic Defender Ear Pro earplugs. They easily fit in your ear canal and lock into place. They aren’t effective enough on their own, but should be in every shooter’s kit.

Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone First Impressions Review

Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone First Impressions Review

I’ve been using the Pyle Pro PMHM2 omni-directional microphone for about six months now. I’ve worn it two ways (“wrong” and the “right” way according to my friend wurmr) with equal results. For Skype the microphone is a little on the faint side even after software boosting. For programs like Open Source Broadcaster, however, the […]
