Online Betting Guide 2020

Online gambling has always been popular since its inception in 1996 and since then has continued to grow at an astounding rate, gaining more popularity with each passing year. Only 5 years ago, in 2015, the size of the global online gambling market was worth $41.4 Billion, today it is worth almost $59 billion. The rise in popularity can be directly linked to the advances in technology. These advances have allowed laptop users to experience the same state-of-the-art visuals that only traditional desktop computer users would have been able to enjoy a few years ago. Moreover, these same games are…

What Are The Best Sports Apps For iPhone?

Unless you’ve lived under a rock in recent years, surely you know or have at least heard that the betting industry, especially the sports one, is in the midst of a boom. Looser laws and better digital technology have lifted the entire sector and it’s ascent is barely getting started. Still, there’s many players on the sidelines for one reason or another — lack of stomach for the ups and downs gambling, perceived “dumb luck” one has, or just lack of knowledge about the practice. We can’t help you with the first two reasons, but we sure can assist on…

Cirrus Dual-Band Ceiling Wireless Access Point

BUY FROM AMAZON Device exceeds expectations with a simple install process. With the state of everything going on in the world today, I try to stay at home as much as possible. One caveat of that is trying to still stay connected to the outside world. Like much of the country and world, we find ourselves working from home, schooling our children from home, shopping from home as much as possible, and getting our entertainment online in one form or another. With everyone using online all the time, having a reliable easy-to-use network makes life that much better. Working without…

PetKit Fresh Element Smart Feeder REVIEW

BUY FROM AMAZON Offer your pet fresh food at any time. I recently adopted a rescue dog. Brutus was on a pretty strict feeding schedule in the shelter and among many other things, I wanted to keep as much of his schedule the same to help with the transition. There are many different variations of automatic pet food feeders on the market. Some have simple digital and mechanical timers that just pop open once the allotted time is reached. These are single-use feeders and just not ideal for someone with a busy lifestyle. Sometimes I forget to eat and I…

NEWYES LCD Writing Tablets

BUY FROM AMAZON BUY FROM AMAZON A fun option for notetaking. Recently, I spent some extended time with my niece. She was asking me for help with her writing homework. I realized that it wasn’t anything like when I was growing up. Students no longer get the fun writing prompts where you trace the shapes of the letters adding a little bit more each time until you have it perfected. There are no funny pictures of a dinosaur next to the letter D. This saddened me a little bit. The kids get laptops at an early age, but nothing to…

BUY FROM AMAZON Tiny but mighty! Dash camera features exceptional performance and high stability on seamless loop recording. In a world of uncertainty on the road, it’s always in your best interest to make sure you are covered for every scenario. You start with the basics like insurance and everyday tools for minor repairs on the road. What most people don’t think about is having an eyewitness to whatever may come up while you are driving. During the commute to and from work and every day, errands are when most people get into accidents. Sometimes it isn’t always clear who…

Edifier TWS1 True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds REVIEW

BUY FROM AMAZON Premium sound and build quality with a budget-friendly price. Like most people, I have gotten the point where I need to be totally wireless in my everyday life. My music and phone calls need to be wireless more so than most other facets of my life. I recently found myself in the market for a new set of wireless earbuds. While this is sort of an exciting experience, it’s also quite overwhelming because of all the choices out there. Do I go for pure looks and risk getting a set with terrible sound? Or do I go…

NOMAD Clear Folio iPhone X Case

An outstanding case that provides superior protection. After a few weeks with the iPhone X, I don’t see how anyone could ever get by without one. The iPhone X is smaller than my iPhone 6 Plus, but I seem to always need more and more pocket space. Like so many other iPhone X owners, I decided to keep my phone in a case for protection purposes. I initially tried a bulkier case since the phone has glass on both sides. I love the look of the iPhone X and still want to be able to see its dramatic design. So, I…

NOMAD Leather Rugged Case for iPhone X REVIEW

A beautifully unique leather case. It’s been over a week since the release of the iPhone X. It’s the sleekest and most beautifully designed handheld device I have ever laid eyes on. The last thing I want to do is drop my new iPhone and crack either the front or back glass or with my luck, both at the same time. While it may be very fragile and expensive I still want it to appear sleek and modern while in a case. Big and bulky cases just slow down movement while having the added side effect of being ugly and…

Zizo Static Case For iPhone X REVIEW

Case engineered to protect your phone without adding bulk. It’s been about a week since the launch of the iPhone X and I am absolutely smitten with it. Previous iPhones have become a necessity for me, but the iPhone X is a necessary extension of me and my whole life already. It’s improved my productivity at work and my personal life is more enjoyable. Some would consider it an obsession, I would say it’s none of their business. With that being said, the iPhone is extremely breakable. Despite claims of having the most durable glass on an iPhone ever, it is still…

Military-grade protection at an affordable price. Just like 20 million or so people, I got my shiny new iPhone X over the weekend. Let’s just say it’s an amazing piece of technology. It’s the fastest, shiniest, most beautiful phone I have ever set my eyes or hands on. That being said, it is definitely the most expensive by quite a bit. After standing in line for over 12 hours to make sure that I got the exact one that I wanted, it has to be taken care of. I also still want my phone to look stylish while it’s being…

SKECH Polo Book iPhone X Case REVIEW

A case for most iPhone X users. The iPhone X literally just came out. I waited in line overnight in the rain to get my new favorite piece of cutting-edge digital goodness. I knew that it was going to be awesome, but it has seriously surpassed all of my expectations. It’s a glorious phone. It is also incredibly expensive. With more glass on the phone, this makes it even more fragile and susceptible to breaks, dings, and all-out shattered mess (or dreams depending on your outlook). With every new iPhone release, there is always the question of what case to…

Oittm 5000mAh Portable Charger REVIEW

Powerful, dual-purpose portable charging for your Apple devices. I can’t go anywhere without my iPhone these days. It is in my hands constantly. It helps me get work done, relax, track how lazy – I mean how active I am, and it helps me connect with friends and family via social media. After the iPhone became apart of my daily routine, I then integrated an Apple Watch. Smart watches have changed how we do everything again. I love my Apple Watch. I honestly don’t know how I went so long without it. This scares me severely. I am very dependent…

GoNovate Gemini Total Wirless Earbuds REVIEW

Decent wireless earbuds at an affordable price. Years ago, like many people, I thought the world was going to be wireless everything. For a brief time, it looked as if that was going be the case. We had all of the promises, but none of the execution. One of the devices that I couldn’t wait to be wireless was how I listened to music. First, we saw wireless speakers. These were either too expensive or they simply just didn’t work very well. I wanted portable headphones for my Walkman. To be truly free meant that there were absolutely no wires.…

Absorbits Wet Phone Rescue Pouch REVIEW

Save the rice for eating and let the Absorbits pouch do the heavy-lifting. In today’s world, everything we have and cherish is electronic. They are all integrated into the fabric of our everyday life. From our entertainment to education, electronics is always present but communication is the biggest category that electronics invade. We all need our phones, laptops, and tablets to connect through voice, text, email, and even video chat like FaceTime.  That is why it’s devastating down to our very core when something happens to our devices. It’s so easy to drop them, crack their displays, destroy their batteries,…

ELEGIANT Romantic Lighting Bluetooth Speaker REVIEW

Perfect multiple-use product for just about any occasion When it comes to electronics, I get a bit obsessive over anything that lights up or has Bluetooth. I have also been known to have an extra two hundred or so candles lying around in a drawer or on a shelf. I also just like electronics that have multiple uses and functions. Early on as a child, I had a fondness for any gadget or gizmo that had multiple functions. I simply couldn’t get enough of the device until I simply had no more space for any. After clearing everything out I decided…

Scosche ClipSync Portable Lightning Charging Cable REVIEW

Incredibly compact charging cable for iOS devices. Given the mobile environment we live in, we all tend to need a little more of a charge in our lives. I am constantly on the go. Wherever I go, my trusty iPhone goes as well. Because of my job, I have to stay connected so that my employees can reach me wherever I go. Since it is always with me, that means I am constantly using it, which sadly, drains the battery pretty fast. I try to keep a charger of some kind nearby at all times, but it becomes difficult keeping track…

Koogeek SK1 Smart Socket REVIEW

Smart Socket is a less expensive option for smart lighting. I would love to have a complete smart house. I just do not have the budget. Try as I might, my millions just seem to elude me. Due to this, I have to find cost effective ways to incorporate any smart device into my home. I have a lot of the basics for a smart home like a thermostat, video door bell, cameras, and several other devices. I enjoy my smart lights and they enjoy my wallet, too. I have several different devices ranging from standard bulbs to the fancy…

OtterBox Strada Case for iPhone REVIEW

Case provides solid protection and a stylish design. I can’t live without my iPhone. It is an extension of me. It is an invaluable tool for me at work. I use it more than I use my computer. It’s faster and more adept than my work computer. My emails come quicker, spreadsheets load faster, and all of my employees can reach me at a moment’s notice while I am away for anything. Outside of work, it keeps me connected to friends and family, as well as my social media and entertainment. That being said, the iPhone is still very fragile.…

AICO Smart Egg REVIEW

Make entertainment less complicated with the AICO Smart Egg. For the love of electronics, we have entirely way too many remotes now. Whether you have a smart tv, set top box, gaming system, Blu-ray player, Bluetooth speakers, smart lights, or any other imaginable electronic that is remotely controlled, there is a remote or app for it. Yes, we do have some pretty cool universal remotes out there, but it is yet another remote to lose or if you are lucky enough to find them then the batteries are dead. This is a pretty common occurrence at my house. Kids, animals,…

Enblue Evolus 3 iOS Docking Station REVIEW

Evolus 3 dock helps to eliminate cable clutter. We need fewer cords! With all the devices we carry and use in our everyday fast paced life, we seem to have a tangle of cords everywhere. Whether it’s on the nightstand, shelf, or counter, there always seem to be an abundance of cords for charging. For me personally, it’s my iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.  While the iPhone and iPad use the same cord I do have to charge them at the same times very frequently. My end table looks like a disheveled mad scientist lives there. There are several different…

WiMius L1 WiFi 1080P Action Camera REVIEW

L1 Action Cam is a mighty little camera. Now that warmer weather is almost upon us, it’s time for outdoor activities. I personally can’t wait. This means it’s time for getting wet and dirty. For me, that means ATV’s, boats, and Waverunners. The sad thing is that I can’t always take people with me. Whether I’m hitting the trails, getting some air in the water, or just lounging by the water, I need a way to record what’s going on for my own posterity or to show others what I was up too. Now I could just use my iPhone…

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

Avid gamer enjoys Wildlands’ immersive gameplay. I have been a gamer since before I knew what being a gamer meant. I longed for my original NES and as I slowly progressed through all the new consoles coming out, I kept finding new and exciting games that I never thought I would enjoy. Once I found first person shooter/combat games I was hooked. With such a huge chunk of the gaming market being first-person shooter games, it has been a free-for-all trying to pick up a game here and there. Like most people, I enjoy sitting back and shooting bad guys to…

ZyXel Armor Z2 Router REVIEW

Armor Z2 makes sure Internet connection is not ‘sub-par’ for gaming enthusiasts. I am a gamer. When I say this, I mean it wholeheartedly. I would just sit at home and play games all day if it wasn’t for a pesky job and family commitments. It’s my simple escape from the everyday grind of life. I can literally be anything and everything at the click of a button. I would like to think that it helps me in my professional life by improving hand-eye coordination as well as keeping me sane. Unfortunately, I don’t get to play as much and…

Going without it is like most people going without coffee. It shouldn’t ever happen. Sadly, you can’t always have music with you at all times, so we just have to appreciate it more when we can. Recently I have been trying to work out more because it has come to my attention that I may be a tad bit out of shape. Well, I have several different earbuds and headsets in my arsenal. It didn’t take long…

Journey Travel Charger Max

Journey Travel is an every day carry item. I rarely spend time at home. Between my social and professional life, I am never near a proper charging solution. While I’m in my car I have an easy way to charge as well as in the office. I’m never in one place or the other for very long, so this is my dilemma. I can’t and won’t carry around a cable and charging block and look for an outlet. Those people look ridiculous and waste so much time searching. Not to mention the fact that you get tied down to a…

Kwikset Kevo Convert

Kevo Convert provides a solid conversion kit but a lack of features. I am not typically a lazy person, but blindly poking around in a pocket or bag for keys runs right through me. People spend quite a bit of their lives looking for their house key standing in front of the door looking silly. There has to be an easier way. The future is now. Well, it’s actually been here for a few years. I am a huge fan of home automation because it makes life simpler and easier. Also, it’s just really cool. I know I won’t ever…

Veho M10 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker

M10 wireless speaker from Veho is designed to fill the entire room with sound The very few precious moments that I get to myself are usually filled with music. Most of the time I just crank up my surround sound system and just get on with my day. While this does the job, I lose volume and sound quality once I go into the other room that I’m working in. I can use headphones to get the job done, but that does hinder my movement and I always worry that I will rip them out and get the destroyed in…

Between work and recreation, I don’t spend a lot of time at home, but that doesn’t stop friends and family from stopping by to visit or FedEx from delivering my packages feeding my Amazon addiction, but I would like to know who was at my home and when. It’s not that I am a control freak and have to know everything. I just like having that sense of security, whether it is keeping an eye on a package that was delivered while I am out, the neighborhood…
