    Review: Senta Ally Bluetooth Stereo Speaker w/ FM

    by Ryan McLaughlin ~ October 20th, 2013

    Portable Bluetooth speakers are dime a dozen, but if you have the right one it can be used with a mobile device to boost its audio so that it is more enjoyable and can be shared with others. With so many manufacturers of portable speakers it may be difficult to pick the right one. Today I will be looking at the Senta Ally speaker system and if it is good then hopefully this will make the decision a little easier

    Review: Straight Talk T-Mobile vs AT&T

    by Ryan McLaughlin ~ March 2nd, 2013

    I recently bought a LG Nexus 4 and because it is unlocked I wanted to use it on a prepaid phone plan. I had previously been using PagePlus, but because this is not a Verizon phone they do not support it. So I had to find a new carrier. After considering my options I went with Straight Talk because they have unlimited data and talk for just $45 a month. However Straight talk uses either T-Mobile or AT&T and I had to choose one before I could use it

Review: Otterbox 1920 Treo Case

by Ryan McLaughlin ~ January 22nd, 2007

Treos are very popular Cell phone/PDA combinations. Like all electronics, Treos are very delicate and susceptible to being damaged by water, dust, dropping, or being crushed. One wrong step and your $500 investment is down the tubes. For safety reasons you always want to take your phone with you when you go hiking or to the beach, but you must be very careful because getting it wet or dropping it would ruin it forever. If you like to go hiking and camping the OtterBox 1920 Treo case may be the answer you are looking for

Review: Edge DiskGo Mini Portable Hard Drive

by Ryan McLaughlin ~ November 11th, 2006

Portable hard drive space is becoming more and more of a necessity. Flash drives are the optimal solution, but they are still very expensive per megabyte and they don’t support large storage space. So instead of lugging around a large desktop hard drive, why not carry a small portable hard drive? They may not have the huge storage space that desktop hard drives have, but they strike a good balance between physical size and storage size

Review: Belkin Universal UPS 1100VA

by Ryan McLaughlin ~ October 21st, 2006

Computer equipment is getting more expensive and more delicate. Even the slightest power fluctuation could fry your video card or power supply. Because of this, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) have become much more popular and affordable. A UPS can seem pretty trivial next to flashy video cards or LCD displays, but when it comes to protecting your computer from lightning strikes or other power problems they are one of the most important pieces of equipment and insurance you can have. Belkin offers one such UPS and it looks like it could be a winner
