• Review: Aerial7 Sound Disk Beanie headphone-hat

    Short Version: The audio is only passable (at least at speed) and the fit questionable, but hey, these do just what they set out to do: put some headphones in a decent hat. Read More

  • Dual USB port charger is tiny, cheap

    This might make a good last-minute stocking stuffer, although I’m not sure if it’ll get to you in time. It’s a little USB power plug with not one, but two (!!!) USB ports. Read More

  • The UltraMega Weekend Giveaway: $500 gift card from

    Good morning. We have a week until Christmas and we’ve been pounding out giveaways left and right. We’ve had Smart Pens, Olive Hi-Fis, and your own personal Ninja for a year (didn’t see that one?

  • Review: Vibram Five Fingers KSO Trek

    Short Version: There are two kinds of people in the world: those who will wear Vibram Five Finger shoes and those who won’t. After a bout with plantar fasciitis and shinsplints, I joined the former camp and feel much better for it. These new shoes, called the VFF KSO (Keep Stuff Out) Trek, add a bit of coverage to what are essentially foot gloves for running, hiking, and looking like a… Read More

  • Stocking Stuffer: Kensington Travel Battery Pack and Charger

    The general idea behind most of Kensington’s products seems to be to perform one main task and then follow up with one or two secondary and thoughtful convergence features. In the case of the Travel Battery Pack and Charger for iPhone and iPod touch, you get a high-capacity backup battery that doubles as a horizontal stand for watching movies. Read More

  • Review: Chinon AVi iPod dock with built-in digital TV tuner

    Short Version: There’s a whole lot of convergence going on with the $200 Chinon AVi. You’ve got an iPod dock, 7-inch digital TV that doubles as an iPod video screen, music player, FM radio, and alarm clock all contained within something the size of a toaster. As with all heavily converged devices there’s the risk of being a jack-of-all trades, but master of none. Does… Read More

  • Review: Digital Foci Photo Book

    Short version: The concept of the “digital photo frame” finally goes mobile with the Digital Foci Photo Book. Its sleek 8″ screen offers 800×600 resolution, supports a variety of memory card formats, and can even display digital photos in RAW format. The built-in speaker allows you to augment photo playback with MP3s, as well as display video, to craft the perfect… Read More

  • BlueAnt releases a Bluetooth headset for motorcycle riders

    Bluetooth headsets are great in a car but even more awesome on a motorcycle. It’s not like you can use your phone while cruising down the road on a bike. You might drop the phone and no one wants that. BlueAnt is the latest company to release a system that fully utilizes all the capabilities of Bluetooth for motorcycle riders. Read More

  • JBL resurrects ‘Creature’ speakers

    Remember these things from back in the day? The “day” being 2002? JBL is bringing back the “Creature” series of computer speakers for the holidays. Read More

  • Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin mini

    The design of the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin mini is a thing of beauty. Not as much so as the $800, full-size Zeppelin, but that’s fine. It’s sort of like how da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man might not be the Mona Lisa, it’s still a work of art. But as good as it looks, it can be very frustrating to use. It’s not the Zeppelin mini’s fault though; iTunes is… Read More

  • Double Review: SolarVoice 908 and SolarCharger 906

    My first experience with solar energy was in Cub Scouts, when we made a solar-powered hot dog cooker. Unfortunately, solar technology hasn’t advanced terribly much in the intervening decades. At the consumer level, solar power still isn’t particularly useful for very much outside of a few niche markets. i.Tech has a couple of products that make a real effort to bring usefulness… Read More

  • Review: The $1200 URC MX-5000 remote

    So this is how the other half lives, huh? It must be nice to have a house full of $1200 remotes customized with user profiles and home automation controls. Yes, this remote costs $1200 and that doesn’t include installation and yes, you need it to be installed professionally. This isn’t a Harmony remote that can be set up in 10 minutes. But once it’s installed, holy cow… Read More

  • Review: AViiQ portable laptop stand

    My general opinion is that laptops were made for laps. But sometimes your lap just isn’t convenient for comfortable for a laptop. There is no shortage of laptop stands, shelves, and supports available for purchase, but few strike the sweet spot that the AViiQ portable laptop stand does. It’s super thin, super light, and folds up to consume a negligible amount of space, making it … Read More
