I Wish Best Buy Would Live On, But Here’s Why It Will Die

Oh Best Buy… the last bastion of electronic superstoreness left over from the good ol’ nineties. How I mourn thee.

Cool Tech this Week #1

DailyTekk got its start showcasing a cool and useful gadget every single weekday (we called it our daily tech finds). Anyone remember those? We’ve gone in a bit of a different direction since then, but I still want to post some great tech finds from time to time. I don’t have a lot of time […]


DTF: Valkee Brightens Up Your Winter, Improves Your Mood With Light

Today’s daily tech find is the Valkee, an interesting product that looks a bit like an MP3 player but with light instead of music coming out of the ear buds. As the website puts it, “Valkee substitutes the mood-elevating effects of the sun, by channeling safe bright light directly to photosensitive regions of the brain through the […]

That’s why I was pretty stoked to find the SHOWWX+ Pico Projector which can project movies, photos, presentations and streaming video up to 100″ in size. That’s pretty big for such […]


Daily Tech Find: Sony LiveView Android Remote

The LiveView Android remote from Sony is wearable (think watch) and lets you get instant updates and launch any app. The LiveView came about when Sony Extras partnered with the London College of Fashion to get new, fresh ideas on wearable technology. The idea reminds me of the WiMM One Watch I recently covered. The Android […]

Daily Tech Find: Securifi Almond Wireless Touchscreen Router

OK. This is just awesome. The Securifi Almond is a wireless router with an awesome 2.8″ touchscreen. The product’s website claims that you’ll be online within seconds. I’ve used some pretty easy-to-get-going routers before but this bad boy looks like it has them all beat… plus is looks coooool. It even comes with preconfigured security […]

Daily Tech Find: Cam Caddie DSLR Stabilizer

Check out the Scorpion from Cam Caddie: a universal DSLR and video camera stabilizer meant to help you shoot some serious video footage.

Daily Tech Find: Logitech M600 Mouse

The Logitech Touch Mouse M600 mouse is a cool new gesture based mouse that was born “from the way we navigate on smartphones and tablets on a daily basis” according to the press release. In other words, as if it wasn’t obvious from the picture, it’s basically a Magic Mouse for PC users with Mac […]

Lenovo N5902 Multimedia Remote

Daily Tech Find: Enhanced Multimedia Remote from Lenovo

The Lenovo Enhanced Multimedia Remote (N5902) lets you control a multimedia PC from up to 30 feet away. Available in two versions, one with a backlit keyboard and one without, the N5902 works much better than a mouse for controlling PC content from a couch or board room chair. What I like about this remote […]
