Guru Approved: Otterbox Defender Gadget Case

Stuff happens… and stuff seems to happen a little more often when you have two little ones under your roof. But stuff need not happened to gadgets! Otterbox’s commitment to protecting your handheld devices is impressive. I recently wrapped up my iPod Touch in an Otterbox Defender case. The Defender protection is a two... Read more »

Earth Day: Green Silence

“Going green” is, in large part, about both producers AND consumers making responsible decisions that lead having a lesser impact on the earth and its resources. Last year, Brooks, the running shoe and apparel company, introduced the “Green Silence”. Their goal with the Green Silence was to produce a high performance running shoe that... Read more »

Learn Some New TRYX

Last week I attended the TRYX OUT: NYC launch party for the new TRYX camera by Casio. Many times companies focus a lot more on the “launch” than the “party”, but when Nicki Minaj and The Roots help to announce the very cool TRYX camera to the world, it’s safe to say there was... Read more »

Tee Off with PGA Golf

Later today, I have a tee time at the Augusta National Golf Club. Up until today, I had ZERO chance of becoming an Augusta Golf Club member and pretty much that same chance an Augusta member, like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett or Jack Welch might invite me for round. But thanks to EA’s Tiger... Read more »

The Jack is Back

Roughly, 15 years ago the office landscape was WAY different. Back then, websites were far from ubiquitous, social networking were two words they had yet to be paired together and the fax machine was the vital office tool. I mention this because about 15 years ago, our office was swept up by You Don’t... Read more »

Your Own Personal Trainer

Don’t look now, but 2011 is pretty much here. As we flip the calendar page late next week, many will be compelled to get their New Year’s resolutions out of the concept phase and into the action phase.

Best Wii Games of 2010

2010 may be remember as the year Wii’s dominance as the active-play video game system ended, but for me, this year will go down as a year the family-friendly console came through with some amazing- a little something for everyone.  Whether you’re into sports games, puzzles, retro (yet neo) classics or just plain old...

Dyson Keeps it Cool

I was lucky enough to test out an “Air-Multiplier” from the folks at Dyson.  Right off the bat, the design makes you say “wow!”  It really looks like more of an art piece than a home appliance – it draws people right too it.  As a fan, it works really well – it can... Read more »
