Product Review: Timex IQ+ Move

I loved my Pebble Time Round smartwatch, and I was really bummed when it was announced that FitBit had purchased Pebble. The purchase meant there would be no more updates to the Pebble. A shame because the watch did have some bugs like not always updating the weather, and occasionally losing steps.

Goodbye Pebble

As of December 7th, Pebble is officially no more. Their intellectual property was purchased by FitBit, who won’t be issuing any updates for the Pebble ecosystem. I love my Pebble Time Round. It isn’t a “smart watch for women,” but in my mind it’s the only smartwatch truly designed with women in

A Year With a Smartwatch

A little over a year ago I bought a smartwatch. I’d wanted one a while, and when Pebble announced their Round I jumped on it. I wasn’t really sure what I expected from a smartwatch. I figured maybe I’d know when my phone rang (and I do), or that I’d use it to

On Headphone Jacks…

After months of rumors Apple has officially released a phone without a 3.5mm (headphone) jack. Of course, everyone is upset about it. What about my wired headphones? An adapter? What if I want to charge my phone while I listen to music? This is ridiculous! I’m switching to Android! (Hate to break

App Review: Telegram

Chatting with friends online has started to become a bit of a pain. There are so many platforms, many of which are device exclusive. If they work with Android, they won’t work with iOS. If they work on mobile, they won’t work on the desktop. I’ve always ended up feeding Facebook all

I Fracking Love My Chromebook

Guys, I fracking love my Chromebook. When I bought my phone, I knew I wasn’t planning on getting another tablet. My phone is big enough to fit most my tablet use cases at this point, and tablets are expensive. I still wanted a “couch device,” and had planned on buying a new

iOrange-E Cable/Adapter Mega Review

I’m not usually one to go for expensive cables. As long as it meets spec, and has a decent connector, I’m pretty happy. But that’s the trick with USB-C right now. It’s new, and there are a lot of cables flooding the market that are not actually made to spec. It was

Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Sometime last year it was announced that a Futurama mobile game was on the way.  Being a huge fan of Futurama, I was very excited about this. While I had never personally played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I had seen it in action, and was very interested in playing a Futurama game

A Week With the Pebble Time Round

In 2012, a Kickstarter launched for the Pebble watch. I wanted it immediately. The idea of having a watch that would send alerts from my phone was still novel at the time. The only smart watch I remember before this was the Microsoft MSDN watch, which didn’t run well and cost $60

A Week with the Nexus 5X

As I approached the end of my two year contract with Verizon, I started looking around at other phones. When I realized the subsidized two year contract phone no longer existed, I resolved to make my Galaxy S4 last as long as possible. And then I dropped it. (My Otterbox case was
