Review: RHA MA-350 aluminum noise isolating in-ear earphones

I was recently offered a pair of RHA MA-350 in-ear headphones for review. I brought them with me on a business trip to China, so I had plenty of time on the long flight to try them out and see how they felt after extended wear. Before I get started, I should mention a few things […]

Game review: Hero Academy

If you know me, you know I’m a picky gamer. I don’t play a lot of games, but that’s not because I don’t like gaming — I just can never find a game that I enjoy long enough to stick with it. Hero Academy, a turn-based strategy game on iOS and Windows, just made its […]

iPhone app review: Checkmark

iOS’s built-in Reminders app is pretty good, but not great. The location-based reminders are a bit time-consuming to set up and the whole app is pretty basic and doesn’t offer up a whole lot of features.

The term high fidelity (or hi-fi) can be traced back to the dawn of music recording, and in general defined a system that could reproduce music with the sharpest and most fulfilling audio quality.  And as the generations moved from turntables to boomboxes to walkmans to portable music players, so too did the continual desire […]

Review: Logitech Gaming Mouse G300

When it comes to mice that work well for both right-handers and left-handers, there’s not many options out there. Sure, there’s a lot of cheap and crappy ambidextrous mice that come packaged with most OEM computers, but there’s never been a really good gaming mouse that’s truly ambidextrous. However, Logitech has finally filled that lonesome […]

Review: Asus K53E-A1 Laptop Review – 15.6″ Brown Beauty

But, I believe that I am using a laptop that is noteworthy in its design and usability, the Asus K53E-A1. The more I use this laptop, the more I enjoy it. Running Chrome, playing Minecraft, […]

Last week after work, I came home to find a package slip from UPS stuck to my door.  This was a bit odd because I wasn’t expecting any deliveries. Always one to take advantage of a misdelivered box of goodies, I headed to the UPS shipping center to check things out. The serviceman came out […]
