    If you’re one of the incredibly small camp of people who use the phenomenally unpopular “I-Phone” or whatever, you might find this useful.

  • Review: Belkin Powerline AV+ Starter Kit

    My Problem: I needed internet connectivity in my garage, which is the only thing on the first level of my house.
