REVIEW – I’m typically not a big fan of novelty items, but when I was offered a review sample of the Shargeek Retro 35W GaN Charger, the idea of saying no didn’t cross my mind at all. As a fan of all things Apple (see episode #5 of my video podcast where I share my …

EVEAGE 14.5″ Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner review – a faster way to wash your driveway

REVIEW – Pressure washing the driveway is an annual event where I live.  A year’s worth of dust and dirt from all the red clay we have around here gives my pavement a rather reddish, muddy look, something that’s definitely not very attractive.  Every fall I haul out the pressure washer, fill it up with …

Muzen Original III AM/FM Radio & Bluetooth Speaker review – Back to the future

REVIEW – Let me say upfront that I am a fan of mid-century modern design. I love the clean, uncluttered lines, the smooth expanse of wood in the furniture, and especially the “atomic ranch” look of that period’s TVs and radios. Mid-century also recalls a simpler time that I’m sure I look back on with …

PAWAii Magic Bowl review – a multi-function elevated dog bowl

REVIEW – I am a happy dog mom of three wonderful pups of varying sizes and ages ranging from 10 pounds to 60 pounds and from 5 months to 16 years.  To say feeding time is chaotic is an understatement.  We get spilled water and food and dogs who are worried that another dog will …

Hiboy S2R electric scooter review – a solid commuter scooter

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed or purchased a half dozen electric scooters over the last few years, and I’ve definitely refined what I’m looking for in a good commuter scooter. First, it needs to be portable/foldable for public transport or stowed in a trunk for last-mile quick trips after a journey. Second, it needs to not …

Nutr Nut Milk Machine review – make your own plant based milks!

REVIEW – Do you buy almond, soy, coconut, oat, and other plant-based milk from the grocery store? Ever taken a look a the list of ingredients on the package? There’s probably a lot of sugar and weird ingredients like carrageenan and artificial flavors and colors. Making your own plant-based milk is a great idea until …

Torro Leather Apple Watch Strap review – a timeless watch band

Torro Leather Strap

REVIEW – Apple recently released its newest round of Apple Watches.  While the Series 8 looks really nice, my wife decided to hold onto her Series 6 for now, as it still gives her all the functionality that she needs.  She does, however, want a new watch band, as it’s been over a year since …

X-Sense XS01-WT Wi-Fi Smoke Alarm review – Because choking on smoke is no joke!

REVIEW – The National Fire Protection Association reports that fire-related fatalities decrease by 55% when a working smoke detector is present, so it’s never a bad idea to add another one to your home. I have plenty of security cameras, but it would be ideal to know the difference between optional viewing, and “Dude! You …
