Pixelmator Quick Review: The Best Photoshop Alternative Hands-Down

I am a long time graphic, app and web designer. I learned how to design using Adobe Photoshop 7 (before there was such as thing as Creative Suite, much less Creative Cloud). So I’ve seen a lot of changes come to Photoshop over the years. I’ve also been on the lookout for a cheaper alternative. […]

Garmin Virb Elite Review: an Affordable, Rugged, Easy-to-Use HD Action Cam

I’ve been wanting to look into a new action cam for awhile now. I used to own a GoPro and, this time around, I sort of figured I had been there and done that. I wondered what else was out there—was there a GoPro alternative that was any good? My search led me to try […]

The Best White Noise Apps for iPhone and Mac Reviewed

As I type this article on my brand new 11″ Macbook Air I’ve got some white noise playing in the background. There are days when I just can’t work without it and today is one of them. People use white noise for all kinds of things. Some people use it to help them fall asleep […]

Enlight App Review: An Outstanding, Unique Mobile Photo Editing Powerhouse

Wow. There are a lot of photo editing, filtering and manipulating apps available for iOS. Did we really need another one? Well, ya. Apart from the slightly different filters and editing tools, we really needed one that has an intuitive user interface (UI); something powerful but easy to use. That’s Enlight. In my view the […]

Chop Chop PSD to HTML Review

If you search for PSD to HTML services in Google, you’ll easily find enough services to make your head spin. Many claim to be the best. Many claim to be the cheapest. Claims are one thing: backing them up with real work as proof is something else entirely. Well today I’m here to provide some […]

Stance: the coolest little iPhone tripod & stand I’ve used so far

You know the feeling when you suddenly realize you’re in the perfect spot for a great photo… if only someone was around to snap the picture? If only you had remembered your tripod—oh wait, you did, but you left it in the car because you didn’t want to lug it around. Well, that’s a feeling […]

Simplehuman Sensor Mirror Review

The simplehuman magnifying sensor mirror is a stainless steel beauty must-have. This gadget is a staple for ensuring a flawless finish to your morning (or evening) routine. The price ($200) seems a bit steep when compared to many other cheap countertop mirrors on the market. But this item is a high quality investment. The 8” […]

Kwikset Kevo Review: Like Living in the Future, Now

My life feels more futuristic all the time. That’s thanks to all the gadgets I receive and review each month. And while there are plenty that make me say, “Wow,” not too many make me feel like I’m from the future and those around me are stuck in the stone ages. But that’s exactly the […]

Review: The Best Minimal Writing App For Mac—Ever

Right now I’m stoked to be typing this review in one of my favorite new Mac apps: Typed. Typed comes from Realmac software, makers of beloved apps such as Clear (for Mac and iPhone), Ember and Rapidweaver. As it stands, I’ve got 3 out of the 4 Mac apps made by Realmac on my Mac right […]

Popclik Review: Fun, Colorful, Unique Headphones, Earphones and Speakers

I’ve tested more than my fair share of headphones, earphones and speakers both in my personal life and for DailyTekk. After awhile features and traits begin to blend together and it gets tough to recall a particular brand or model. That’s why it’s such a surprise to find a brand or product whose features or […]

One Of The Best TV Antennas You’ll Ever See

When you think of a TV antenna, you probably think of a black base with two unsightly extendable metal poles that you would want to hide behind your TV but couldn’t because you have to move it to the most conspicous area in your living room to get any channels to come in. That’s essentially […]

If There Were A Dream Keyboard, This Would Be It

I’ve been eyeing a particular keyboard for many months now. I wanted to try this keyboard more than a person should probably want to try any keyboard. It had a killer feature that made me want it which I’ll explain shortly. The keyboard I’m talking about is the Kanex Multi-Sync Bluetooth Keyboard for Mac and […]

I Found It: The Most Useful iPhone App Of All Time

I found an app I’m willing to call the most useful iPhone app of all time. It’s called Drafts. No, I wasn’t paid to write that. I love Drafts. No, I mean I really, really LOVE it. It’s brilliant. It makes working faster, easier, better… but most of all: faster. Let me add a breath […]

Clair BG2025 Air Purifier Review: Stylish, Quiet, Convenient

Whether you live in the city or in the country, today’s air quality is increasingly alarming. Exhaust from trucks, a neighbor that smokes, fumes from industrial farms and, well, your basic cloud of pollution. It’s all the stuff I listed above that makes a person like myself like the idea of an air filter. But […]

I’m on a mission to find and test the best looking iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases, and then pick a winner. I love the design of the iPhone 6 and I think it’s a necessary shame to have to cover it up. So far I’ve taken a look at Incipio’s NGP case. Today I’m […]

The Best Looking iPhone 6 Cases Part 1: Incipio NGP

From the moment I knew I’d be buying an iPhone 6 I was thinking about what case I’d want to use. Yes, I hate to cover up such a beautiful work of art, but I’d much rather have a whole work of art than a broken one. Let’s face it: the iPhone 6 is a […]

Ingenious Headphones That Don’t Get Tangled

One of the most annoying annoyances a smartphone user deals with is tangled headphone cords. Doesn’t matter if you’re an Apple or Samsung user, a Beats lover or a Bose fanatic. Wired headphones get tangled. Well, almost all wired headphones get tangled. I’d read about ZipBuds before on various tech blogs. They’re earphones that literally […]
