Hot Toddy: Introducing the Wedge

Here's one you're just going to love. When it arrived via Fedex, it was the only thing in the box. It took me a moment to figure out exactly what it was and how it worked. But when I did decode it, I loved it and appreciated its functionality and simplicity. I wondered why no one had ever thought of it before.

The label on it says "Toddy". I always thought a toddy was a hot alcoholic beverage, not this toddy, but it's definitely hot.

Basically what we're talking about is a colorful cloth wedge that measures four by five inches with a height of about 3 1/4 inches.

Wicked Audio Ear Buds

I received two pairs of Wicked Audio ear buds to review. Why a company with so many choices of ear appliances would want to produce two new models is a mystery. Obviously they must be an improvement over existing models.

Frankly, I don't see how the listening experience could be much better than what the Wicked Deuce and Mojo ear buds produce for your listening pleasure.

A warning comes on the package about using excessive volume. Without thinking I turned a little Mozart on my iPod and plugged in the buds. I thought my head would explode, and the volume was only cranked up half way.

They come in pairs, look like a new form of Japanese Ninja throwing knife. In fact, if the edges were sharpened, they might well function as such. Each piece has a slot that when fitted together properly become an attractive stand for digital devices.

These innovative device holders are called Prizms by Hub Innovations and come in two sizes. Most device holders are kinda clunky, but not the Prizm.

a-Jays 4 Voice Optimized Ear Phones

There's always a pleasure in reviewing a quality product. The a-Jays ear Phone set is a winner in craftsmanship and sound quality.

The most difficult part was figuring out how to open the packaging. It comes in an oval plastic sleeve that seems to be tightly sealed top and bottom with no windows, doors or latches visible. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I finally got out my pliers and broke off the top. After that the innards slid out easily, and I was in business.

It is an attractive job of packaging though.

A Must Have Travel Companion: The Geneva XS Speaker System

For fear of dating myself, I remember not leaving home without a folding, windup, analog travel alarm clock. Now, there's probably not a hotel room in the world without a radio alarm clock. Now most people probably use their phone for waking up in the morning. But there's a better way.

I've discovered a speaker system to die for that does it all. The Geneva Sound System Model XS is highly portable. It folds into a study case measuring 6 1/4" x 3 3/4" x 1 1/2" making a compact unit in your suitcase. It weighs about one pound.

Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review

My relationship with the Archos 80 series has been of growing interest with a few disappointments. Overall, I would say that it is a nice tablet worthy of your consideration depending on your needs.

I have to say I was not too impressed with the first Archos 80 I tried. The first problem with the 3.5 mm charger port, which only worked on occasion. I never could get the USB port to work, and it lacked an SD expansion slot.

As if by magic, somehow the developers received my concerns and addressed the issues in the next release.

The Return of the Styli: Hand Stylus

Ah, I remember fondly the good old days of Windows Mobile and the precision pointing of the stylus and so many fewer typos. Then came the iPhone and a whole new generation of nose miners emerged gooping up the screen with greasy fingers and worse. I for one am tired of gummy screens and applaud the resurgence of the stylus.

Now a stylus could be nothing more than a wad of aluminum foil, but thanks to Hand Stylus there is an attractive line of styli out there with your choice of colors.

Here comes Griffin Smart Talk Solar to the rescue. I can't tell you how it makes me shutter when I see a soccer mom with a van full of kids yacking away on her phone.

What makes Smart Talk special is that it is solar powered thus eliminating the unsightly and cumbersome power cord of other hands free devices.
