Cardo Scala Rider Teamset Review

June 10, 2010 by · 19 Comments 

¬†Cardo Scala Rider Teamset By Mark Gracey I used to own a much loved and well worn-in 50cc Vespa.¬† With such a small bike with a small seat to share, my partner Rowena and I could carry on a perfectly decent conversation without the aid of microphones at top speed (which on the Vespa is […]

Misleading Battery Life Specs from Garmin Nuvi 780

Misleading Battery Life Specs from Garmin Nuvi 780

April 10, 2010 by · 14 Comments 

I recently purchased a Garmin nuvi 780 portable GPS, and quickly noticed that the battery life was much less than the spec’d – averaging 45 minutes for me before low battery warning and subsequent shutdown in less than 60 minutes.

I think I have a Bluetooth Headset Fetish. Not in the silly kind of way where I walk around all day with one in my ear, but moreso in a scifi-ish sort of way. I’m fascinated by the technology that has allowed us to seemingly be talking to ourselves, as viewed by others, but to […]

The Quest for the Next Great Bluetooth Headset

April 8, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

I have an Aliph Jawbone right now. It works well, but is quite difficult for me to use with glasses (it regularly falls out of my ear and hangs loosely requiring constant fiddling). In addition, although the sound quality is good when reducing noise, it isn’t as rich or smooth as it could be. For […]
