  • The Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver sends your iPhone's music to speakers and such

    Looking at this Belkin Bluetooth Music Receiver, I’m over here thinking, “Man, 99 percent of the stuff we write about is useless unless you’re in the market for that type of item.” That’s not a knock against the Bluetooth thing here, but if you’re not looking for one right now? Not all that exciting, no. Read More

  • Belkin recalls surge protectors over fire concerns

  • Belkin intros a trio of "comfort" mice

    It’s hard to believe that anything other than the Logitech MX Revolution could be comfortable in the hand.

  • 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. Thing is, my garage seems to be built like a friggin’ faraday cage – the wireless signals just don’t survive the journey through whatever freaky space age insulation they used during construction. The router and modem are on the second level, and running… Read More

  • Belkin paying 65 cents for good reviews on NewEgg and Amazon?

    I just contacted Belkin to confirm but this doesn’t look good. A site called The Daily Background found evidence that Belkin Bizdev guy, Michael Bayard, is paying folks 65 cents to write good things about Belkin routers. Why? I’m not sure. I sure didn’t mind Belkin routers in the first place and 65 cents isn’t a lot of money for a paragraph. Maybe a flat buck or a USB… Read More

  • Review: Belkin GoStudio

    As a dilettante musician I enjoy the concept – if not the process – of recording my reedy, whiny voice to digital files. Until recently, that process was fraught with trouble and high quality recording equipment was difficult to obtain and expensive. Now anyone with a six-string and a dream can record fairly acceptable audio with something like the Belkin GoStudio. Read More
