Is This The Best Selfie Stick Ever?

The first time I saw a selfie stick I was experiencing what it was like to float thousands of ridiculous feet above the street next to the Willis Tower in Chicago. The only thing preventing me from splatting was a layer of transparent glass. But the moment was incomplete because my wife and I both […]

Spotify Running Originals: The Dawn Of Smart Music And A True Innovation

Spotify is innovative. If I were to think to myself, “What could possibly be done with music that hasn’t been done already?” I wouldn’t be able to come up with anything. Apple asked itself that same question and vomited out Apple Music, a giant yawn — Beats 1 included. When Spotify asked itself that question […]

Amazon Crime: It Took 97 Minutes For Amazon To Admit They Were Screwing Me

“Some people definitely do use it that way,” says Ryan, an Amazon support representative I spoke to by phone. “It is an apology for a negative experience. It sounds like exactly like you put it: they were just throwing it out there just so you would stop bugging them.” I knew it! I’ve become sadly […]

TomTom Bandit Action Cam: Highest Quality Video, Easiest To Use Features

Action cameras are nothing new: they’ve been around for awhile now and the genre has grown a bit stale. There hasn’t been a lot of innovation in this space. On the contrary, it’s been a bit of a slow crawl forward with higher specs here and there. That’s why the team at DailyTekk is excited […]

EazyWallz Review: The Best Selection Of Cool Wall Murals

White walls are boring. You don’t live on a white-washed space station (like in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey). You and the people you’re around the most (family, colleagues) have personalities. Whether you’re at home or at work you want to be in a creative, happy, inspired mood as you go about your day. […]

3 Reasons Frank & Oak Is The Best Men’s Fashion Brand On The Planet

Now, for me to say that, I obviously think their style is on-point. And, as I mentioned in a recent […]

I’m happy to say that using the Apple Watch to navigate a new town was very convenient, despite a few minor quirks which, as it turned out, led […]

This 3M Privacy Screen Protector Shields Your Phone From Visual Hacking

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 3M Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. What comes to mind when you think of hacking?

Inner Exile Hydra Self-Healing iPhone Case Review (The Best-Looking iPhone Case)

To me, design matters — a lot. It’s one of the reasons I bought an iPhone. And not to throw any shade on any iPhone case manufacturers, but the design of the iPhone itself trumps the design of any iPhone case. And so, since last October when I bought my latest iPhone (a 6 Plus), I’ve […]

Had Apple Been Named Banana, Would It’ve Been As Successful? Seriously…

Apple Computer, Inc., humbly founded in 1976, now ranks twelfth on the 2015 list of the world’s biggest public companies (compiled by Forbes). But naming a company after a piece of fruit is actually pretty strange. In fact it begs the question: how has the company’s name affected it’s success? More specifically, did blind luck, relentless ambition and/or prudent […]
