Google Glass is coming

Google Glass is a head-mounted computer with a mini display attached to it. The system is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project.  With it, you can interact with pictures, videos, SMS text messages, and much more.  Companion apps are also available for your Android or iOS smartphone.  Currently, the product is only available by invitation.

GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition - Wireless Update Failed

I'm writing this in case anybody else is thinking about buying a GoPro HERO 3 Black Edition and wants to research known issues first.  It seems that many people, including myself, have experienced issues with the wireless feature and connecting to the companion app for the iPhone or Android smartphones.

How to Activate your new Samsung Galaxy S III for Verizon Wireless

Ok, after much anticipation, I finally received my Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S3 today.  Unfortunately I had some troubles activating the phone on Verizon's network.

I popped in the SIM card and battery and fired it up.  It jumps right into the activation screen where it sat for the next 20 minutes before displaying an error instructing me to restart and try again.  I tried again. And again.  This went on for an hour and a half.  Arggghhh!

 

Jacks Wholesale Windows Redeemed

I am extremely please to write that our situation with Jacks Wholesale Windows has come to a close.  We first purchased the windows from Jack's a few years ago and we had several issues at first.  I'm happy to say that those issues have all been resolved and faith in Jack's Wholesale Windows has been restored.

Pictionary Man Game To Go - Sound Worth it?

We've written about the full version of Pictionary Man before, but did you know this creativity-inspiring Mattel game is now available in a travel flavor?  Featuring 480 clues, its likely that many are the same as the home version of the game.  This is a safe assumption as the in-action shot of the game features the same 'surfer' clue on both editions.

2 Weeks with AT&T U-Verse: Worth Switching from Comcast?

Week 1

I have been a loyal customer of Comcast for at least 4 years.  In that time, my internet and/or cable service was interrupted 4 times.  Each time this occurred, I would call the Customer Service line and find out that there was a past due amount. The first three times, I had forgot the schedule the payment and was a few days past due.  Really?  You'll shut off my service for being past due a few days? 

Would you buy a $400 pair of Columbia Omni-Heat electric boots?

Ok, you may have seen our review for the Columbia Coretek WP Hiking Boots, but what about those Omni-Heat electric boots??  I must say, paying $350 to $450 dollars gets me pretty warm just thinking about it, do we really need a USB charged battery pack for a few extra degrees?
 

Finally Found The Go Find

 Ok, maybe I shouldn't say 'Finally', its not like the music was never available.  I just couldn't find it in the stores and many of the sites I frequent to purchase MP3's hadn't made it available yet.  Alas, "Everybody Knows It's Going To Happen Only Not Tonight" is available from Amazon's music library.

Bliptronic 5000 is a hit

Based on the recommendation made earlier on this site for the Bliptronic 5000, I recently purchased one as a gift for friend who is a bit more musically inclined than I.  In fact, when the Bliptronic was presented, there were several musicians around to see the unwrapping.  It was like each one of those musicians received the gift.  The synthesizer was passed around for a few hours, each new user filled with delight as if was a gift unto them.

Jacks Wholesale Windows Review Continued - I see a big difference, my new windows are dirty and crooked

Buyers remorse barely touches what I'm feeling now.  I am filled with deep regret over my purchase through Jacks Wholesale Windows.  In my initial review of Jacks Wholesale Windows  service, I gave them the benefit of the doubt in that I was optimistic that they could redeem themselves.  Boy was I wrong.
