Ethernet over Power with the Netgear Powerline 500

Ethernet over Power with the Netgear Powerline 500

The Netgear Powerline 500 uses Ethernet over Power technology to solve wife range problems in the home. Ethernet over Power technology has been around several years. With numerous products on the market designed for the home and small office there is a large selection of competing brands to choose from at a very affordable price. I am a disappointed in myself for not thinking of this sooner. Unlike modern homes today which are built with technology and See the Review

Winegard HDTV Antenna

Winegard HDTV Antenna

I bought the Winegard HDTV Antenna on impulse, on-site without having any prior knowledge of the brand, research or reviews. What prompted me to buy this particular outdoor HDTV antenna was the low, $35.00 price tag at Home Depot. I was actually shopping for both a splitter and an inexpensive, outdoor HD antenna. As it turns out, I didn’t need a splitter. You may or may not need a coax splitter either, but before we See the Review

Canon SX510HS Camera Review

Canon SX510HS Camera Review

Right off the bat, I can make three, important claims about the Canon Powershot SX510 Superzoom Camera: One, I am absolutely certain that the SX510HS does not provide the greatest image and video quality of any digital camera. Two, I am equally certain that the Sx510 does not possess the biggest nor best superzoom capabilities of any digital camera on the market. Three, the Canon Powershot SX510 provides perhaps the biggest punch and bang for See the Review

Friendly Swede iPad Stylus

Friendly Swede iPad Stylus

The Friendly Swede has really outdone himself with this 6-piece set of stylish, good-looking iPad / iPhone Stylus Pens. The Friendly Swede iPad Stylus comes in a colorful set of six. Many apps on tablets and smartphones simply work better with a stylus. The other day, I was at my local, OfficeMax store where I noticed they sold iPad Stylus pens for $19.95 each. This seemed rather expensive to me, even though I had never See the Review

Wireless Weather Station

Wireless Weather Station

This Wireless Weather Station replaced the broken atomic clock that was in my bathroom for several years. Named, Touch Weather, by Oregon Scientific, this particular wireless weather station was appealing to me for a couple of reasons: The picture on the box indicated a very bright, easy-to-read display and a small, attractive design. I really only wanted another atomic clock for getting ready for work in the mornings, but decided having a temperature gauge in See the Review

Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

Best Bluetooth Speaker under 100 What is the best way to get wireless outdoor music on a tight budget? I recently had my outdoor deck replaced and unfortunately it meant having to rip out the outdoor, JVC speakers which were attached to my basement stereo and mounted to my outdoor deck facia. I neither had the time nor energy to re-wire the speakers to an antiquated, in-door stereo system. By the same token, I didn’t See the Review

Logitech M325 Mouse

Logitech M325 Mouse

The Logitech M325 is about one third the price of the Microsoft 5000 Laser mouse I bought 4 years ago. What I used to think was the best wireless mouse is now in my trash can. As I zip around Windows 7 and surf the web with the sleek, comfortable, well-made and cheap, Logitech M325, it is obvious that you don’t always get what you pay for with user interface products such as mice and keyboards.

It has only been out three months, but is the See the Review

HL-2280DW Review How do you rate the Brother HL-2280DW Laster Printer?  Benefits of Laser All-In-One Printers over InjetsI bought the Brother HL-2280DW All-In-One Laser Printer to replace the HP C6180 Ink Jet that has been in use for the past 6 years. In my household, we’ve learned that trying to use photo printers for business scans, copies and printing is more trouble that it’s worth. Even as a photo printer, the HP C6180 has not See the Review

Is the iPad 3 Better Than the iPad 2?

Is the iPad 3 Better Than the iPad 2?

While looking at Apple products over at Best Buy last Sunday, a young lady asked the store rep, “is the iPad 3 Better than the iPad 2?” I didn’t really understand the answer the young sales rep gave to her. He said that the iPad 3 was not really any better than the iPad 2. The only difference is that it is faster; has a better camera and displays higher resolution images and text. Am See the Review

HP Wireless Elite Keyboard

HP Wireless Elite Keyboard

I love my new computer keyboard. The HP Wireless Elite Keyboard is the best purchase I’ve made for my PC in many, many years. My previous Microsoft Keyboard was big, bulky and the keys felt clunky and sloppy. When you think about it – what really gets used on a computer these days? The screen, obviously; the mouse and … the keyboard. Why do so few people talk about the keyboard? If you are a See the Review
