It has been the season for tech upgrading in our house! My iPad and Macbook both got replaced, and we got a second Apple TV for the main television. I don’t love doing all of this. It is nice to have new things, but I always cringe at spending the money! Thanks to a well-timed sale of my [...]

I’ve got so many external batteries lying around the house now that I joke with my husband we can keep our Kindles running for months in the case of a Zombie Apocalypse. But of course I was willing to accept one more when the folks from RAVPower offered to send me their [easyazon-link [...]

I’ve been perfectly happy with my [easyazon-link asin=”B005EOWBKE” locale=”us”]AmazonBasics Bluetooth Keyboard[/easyazon-link] for well over a year now. However, when Inateck asked me to try their keyboard,  I was more than willing to give it a go. I received the [...]

You know how sometimes that thing you wanted without even realizing you wanted it comes along? That was my reaction when I received the email from 1 Voice about their new Bluetooth ear warmers. They sent me a sample, and I was eager to try them out, especially since temperatures have been dropping, [...]

It’s getting to be that time of year when people will be deciding on gifts to give for the holiday. With the Kindle Paperwhite now being marketed as the mid-range offering in Amazon’s eInk reader line up, I’m betting there will be a number of them wrapped in colorful paper soon. [...]

I recently purchased some teaching products via The order arrived last week and everything was fine, so I didn’t pay too much attention to it, and did not realize it had come from a third-party seller until I got a curious email from them this week. The email said that their [...]

The all-too-predictable consequences for the creative arts – including literature – of the European Union’s apparently misguided attempt to legislate a “right to be forgotten” appear to have started to roll. Croatian pianist Dejan Lazic has submitted a request to The [...]

Some Android devices have micro-SD slots and some, like the Nexus 7, do not. If you listen to a lot of music or like to load video to your device, you know it’s easy to run out of space. Without on-board expandable storage, what are your options? I just came back from a camping trip, and I [...]

Review: French Readers at the Kindle Store

I wrote last year about a series of ‘French reader’ storybooks I found at the Kindle store. I had downloaded several of them as freebies and found them decent, but over-priced. I would rather pay $10 for a full-length book than $4 each for a whole bunch of mini ones! So I was delighted [...]

It’s no secret that the animated TV show Robotech had a big formative influence on me when I was growing up. I still use the handle “Robotech_Master” for my Twitter, Facebook, and other personal Internet accounts, and I still love the show. And my main foray into podcasting, Space Station [...]

I’ve finished reading through the first volume of the RPG history from that Kickstarter I mentioned the other day, and I have to say that I’m very impressed. In fact, I plan on nominating it for the “Best Related Work” Hugo when the 2014 Hugo nominations come around. It’s just that good. [...]

I have been looking for an iPad case with pockets for some time. I go to many meetings during the week where I want my iPad and perhaps a credit card and driver’s license, but I don’t want to carry my messenger bag. An iPad case with a few pockets would do it. When the folks at Snugg [...]
