Moment’s Version 2 Lens Suite Improves Smartphone Photography

Since built-in phone cameras have so vastly improved with each new smartphone upgrade, most people simply use their phones as their default, and often only, camera. It used to be that this was true only of casual photographers or people who wanted little more than selfies, candid shots, and photos of friends and family. It is becoming increasingly true, though, even in the field of professional photography, as smartphone camera technology evolves to the point that it can even rival DSLR quality in many top of the line models. Mobile photography has increased in popularity because of its ease and the lack of bulky equipment, particularly given the fact that nearly everyone has a smartphone on his or her person at all times. Though it is better than ever before, smartphone photography could still improve, and that is where Moment’s Version 2 full lens suite comes in. Read more »


Jabra’s Elite Sport Upgraded are a Revolution in Wireless

Bluetooth earbuds have been understandably popular for some years now, but it was not until recent years that companies finally achieved the push for wireless with headphones and especially earbuds. Since they did emerge, there are now dozens of truly wireless earbuds, with no cord connecting the left and right together, on the market. While not the first available commercially, the Apple AirPods were the first to really bring wireless earbuds into the public eye. Unfortunately, they were not good for sporting due to a lack of water and sweat resistance, nor do they stay in your ears with excessive movement, so a large part of those who would find them beneficial do not find them useful. In 2017, Jabra released the Elite Sport earbuds to deal with this issue, designing them with athletes in mind, and they have reinvented them with the Elite Sport Upgraded. Read more »


The Buffalo F is the Best Longboard Ever Made

Skateboarding has been around for nearly eighty years, though it saw its peak in the 1980s and 1990s. It still holds some popularity, however, and serves as more than just a hobby or an action sport. There are people who use skateboarding as a form of art, a mode of transportation that is quicker than walking but still quite active, and even as a job. Reports have estimated that there are over 11 million active skateboarders worldwide, and the International Olympic Committee has announced that skateboarding will officially be a recognized sport in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Technology has kept pace with this sport as much as any other, and the most obvious example of this is the creation of the electric skateboard. Serious skateboarders are more likely to consider the longboard, which is designed specifically for turning and cruising smoothly at high speeds over long distances and is easier to control. With the new Buffalo F, there is now a model that combines the best speed, range, and strength to rule the competition. Read more »


Logitech’s Harmony Elite is the Evolution of the Universal Remote

Not too many years ago, the idea of a “universal” remote was a novelty, but one that was realized in 1985. At the time, that meant little more than the ability to operate the TV, VCR, and a few other devices and could control little more than power, volume, and other basic play controls. 1987 saw the release of the first programmable universal remote, allowing those who were more technically capable to do more with it. The next step in this evolution was a universal remote with the ability to upload its settings to a computer. Later iterations of the universal remote had Macro programming, allowing a user to program command sequences to be set the press of a single button and an LCD built into it to display status information. To say that universal remotes have come a long way in the years between then and now is something of an understatement, particularly given the arrival of arguably the best ever made: the Logitech Harmony Elite.

The Glass Sound Speaker is Tops among Bluetooth Speakers for Design

Bluetooth speakers are a major convenience for listening to anything you want anywhere you are in your home or even at work with the greatest convenience. They are not typically a decor piece, however, and very few look particularly unique in comparison to others. There are some Bluetooth speakers designed to offer a distinctive look or even equipped with lights, but there is still no mistaking them for anything but what they are. This has been true up to now, that is, thanks to Sony’s LSPX-S1 Glass Sound speaker, a Bluetooth-enabled speaker that provides all the same features it should but with a much more artistic flair. It is candle-like in appearance, with LED lights that gleam like a refracted candle flame inside a glass flute-like structure. Read more »


Polaroid’s OneStep 2 Offers Both Nostalgia and Quality

Polaroid has historically been one of the most popular consumer electronics companies in the world, best known for its line of instant film and cameras. Many people might be surprised to learn that Polaroid is still producing instant cameras. They could be justified in their surprise given that it seems like an analog product in a digital age. Some of the unawareness may result from the fact that Polaroid declared bankruptcy not once but twice in attempting to keep its product line relevant in the face of rapidly improving photography and mobile tech. Polaroid, having rebranded once as Impossible Project and now once again as Polaroid Originals, has now gained back some of the market by rereleasing newer, improved versions of their cameras. They have also convinced people that, even in an age in which any device you carry on your person can take and store a large number of photos at any time, there is a benefit to having a physical photo to claim and own. It has done so with the new OneStep 2, an instant camera that improves on original models with some modern touches. Read more »


DJI’s Mavic Pro Platinum May be the Best Consumer Drone on the Market

While perhaps not a name recognized in many households, DJI has made a name for itself in tech as the biggest in the consumer drone market. 2016 saw the release of the Mavic Pro, one of the best drones ever created for common use and a favorite among drone enthusiasts with some of the highest ratings ever garnered. At the end of 2017, however, DJI went a bit further by upgrading their already exceptional base model and releasing the Mavic Pro Platinum. While most compact drones have fewer features than larger models, the original design boasted a wide range of features that placed it among the top consumer drones ever released, and the Mac Pro Platinum is an improvement beyond merely a change in color.

Amazon’s Newest Internet TV is a Top Choice

Internet TV has evolved to become much more than simply the ability to watch pirated TV shows on your computer as it was in its very earliest stages. With such a demand to watch more TV and be able to do so whenever, wherever, there were several necessary steps along the way to get to where we are now. These evolutions included being able to link a computer to a TV screen, which was really just using what you could watch online until devices like TiVo and the Roku, and from there TVs that could actually connect to the Internet, then wireless connections from apps on a smartphone or table to the TV. Internet TV realizes its most current advancement in the Amazon Fire TV 4K with the Alexa voice remote. Read more »


Cross Brings Tech to its High-Quality Writing Implements

Applications for technology are far-reaching, extending to just about every known device for innumerable purposes in every imaginable field, but there is one common, everyday implement to which many never could have foreseen applications of tech as advanced as we have today: pens. The newest and most blatant example of the use of technology in writing implements is Cross’s new Peerless TrackR pen. Of course, Cross is a very well-known maker of pens since the mid-19th century and has always created the highest-end pens on the market. They have always been top of the line for style and used mostly by businessmen looking to make an impression. Why else would someone spend $100 for a pen when you can buy a pack of ten for around $5? The difference has always been that Cross has created pens for their quality and style rather than frugality, and their target has always been businesspeople in particular. The difference between every other pen and the TrackR is the very particular implementation of mobile technology in this newest model. Read more »
