    Judie and I bought Google Glass a few months ago. We enjoyed taking pictures and shooting video with them, but post-CES 2014 we sold ours. The reason? Glass is fun and innovative, but it’s not ready for prime time. My Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 are. Yes,…

  • DRACOdesign SUPERNOVA Aluminum Bumper for Samsung Galaxy S5

    22 April 2014, 1:00 pm by: Daniel Cohen

    One criticism (warranted) of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is that, by sticking with the plastic body for this generation of their latest phone, Samsung has made a high-end phone that doesn’t feel so high-end. DRACOdesign has a solution to the “cheap plastic…

  • Bluelounge Jimi Brings Convenience to Your iMac’s Hidden USB Ports

    22 April 2014, 1:01 am by: Daniel Cohen

  • Let Your Pictures Take to the Sky with Eyefi Cloud

    21 April 2014, 7:15 pm by: Daniel Cohen

    I’ve long known Eyefi to be a great way to wirelessly send images from my camera to my computer or mobile device. My Sony RX100 doesn’t have the WiFi of my NEX-6 so an EyeFi card is a must for me when I use it on the go. Now the company is upping the anti…
