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.

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.

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

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).

Lenovo Working to Protect Users from Security Vulnerabilities

While we may live in an age where technology is dominant, it also remains malleable to the threat of increasingly sophisticated cyber-thieves and malware. This is something particularly threatening to software and hardware brands, as their entire proposition can be compromised through a single security threat.
