TechnologyTell Review: Jabra Stealth Bluetooth Headset

If part of your day involves lots of phone time, it pays to have a good earpiece. It doesn’t really matter if you’re in an office, mobile office, or just chit-chat with people frequently. That earpiece is going to be your best friend for quality, wireless communication.

TechnologyTell Review: Huawei Ascend Mate2 smartphone

Huawei makes smartphones, but you might now know it unless you’ve lived outside the U.S. for awhile. Or unless you stay on top of all things mobile and tech. But all that may soon change, as the company has been arduously working toward making a bigger name for themselves. The Android smartphone market is very competitive, but that hasn’t stopped the tech giant from appealing to potential customers.

TechnologyTell Review: V-Moda Faders VIP Tuned Metal Earplugs

Although I don’t get to see musicians live that often, I make it a point to go when I can. It’s an indulgence that everyone should do a few times a year, since music is so much more powerful and exciting that way. Aside from a potentially-packed venue, the only real drawback would be ringing in the ears due to lack of protection.

Booq is one of my absolute favorites when it comes to top-end bags and backpacks. Their design caters to those wanting quality and professional impression. With each new product release, booq tends to add new surprises; the Cobra pack is no different.

Luxy Diary: Day 1 1/2 on ‘Tinder for rich people’

Yesterday I set out on a brave new journey to find my rich soulmate and was completely disappointed to find that the app was broken. I waxed UNpoetic about the trials and tribulations of Tinder “riff-raff” (STREET RAT!) and patted myself on the back for being just attractive enough to slip on in through the more »

Luxy Diary: Day 1 on ‘Tinder for rich people’

See how Day 1.5 went! Luxy is a new dating app, straight from the crucible that is Silicon Valley, which employs the catchphrase “Tinder minus the poor people,” in case you were wondering where it lies on a one to 10 scale of elitism. (It’s a 10.) As a Tinder veteran with what I would call expert-level Tinder game, I more »

TechnologyTell Review: Life N Soul BE501 BT headphones

I first encountered Life N Soul at CES 2014. To me, they’re a very new company, but have a very big heart when it comes to audio and music. Their style draws you in and the sound keeps you around. Bluetooth wireless headphones are “in” right now. Does the Life N Soul BE501 have what it takes to compete? Read on and find out!

Review: Rain Design Inc. iLevel2 badass laptop stand

I’ve incorporated the Rain Design Inc. iLevel2 Laptop Stand into my home office for past couple of weeks and kept an eye on how it’s affected my workflow. Since I have no intention of upgrading my sweet little 13″ MacBook Pro to a Gazillion-inch Mac desktop computer– and transformer computers don’t exist, yet (let’s get more »

TechnologyTell Review: V-Moda XS, Boompro, XS vs. M-100

V-Moda has been drumming up accolades over the past couple of years, namely with its renowned Crossfade M-100 headphones. They’ve been doing their own thing since 2004, which is melding tech fashion and performance together. V-Moda has been at it long before this recent, budding revolution of wearable tech. Although some may not prefer V-Moda’s more »

TechnologyTell Review: FreshETech All-Terrain Sound Speaker

Contrary to popular belief, rugged speakers aren’t only for summertime use. Trust me. One can find much adventure and trouble outside of the few summer months. But even if you’re not big on outdoor activity, rugged and/or waterproof speakers are great in and around the home. Backyard? Bathtub? Don’t let your imagination ruin the possibilities and limit how and where you can listen to music. Especially with a speaker as small as the FreshETech All-Terrain Sound.

TechnologyTell Review: Inateck BTSP-10 Bluetooth speaker

It’s hard to escape portable Bluetooth speakers these days. They’re everywhere, and the competition continues with ferocity. It’s almost getting to that point where they all sort of just blend together. But every once in awhile, one catches your attention and singles itself out. In the case of the Inateck BTSP-10 Bluetooth speaker, it was the artsy design, with a bright logo against a field of blue, that piqued my curiosity.

TechnologyTell Review: Plantronics BackBeat FIT

When it comes to exercise, music is a driving force. Some studies have shown that people are less likely to commit to working out without music. However, not every set of headphones or earbuds are ideal when it comes to cords, sweat, and motion. It makes sense that a wireless product would pair well with activity.
