2013 Buick Encore Crossover Wraps Tech, Luxury and Value in a Pleasant Package
I recently had an opportunity to drive Buick’s new upstart crossover SUV, the 2013 Encore, and there’s a single word I’d like to use to describe my experience – pleasant. Yes, this small vehicle is comfortable, luxurious, loaded with modern-day conveniences, and well appointed for the price.

HTC One Review: iPhone 5 & Galaxy S4 Get Some Serious Competition

Crosley Spinnerette USB Converter Turntable: Hands-on Review
I’m probably dating myself, but I still have a massive collection of old vinyl records gathering dust in bins in my closet. I actually no longer have a turntable, so other than the few records I purchased as CDs or in digital formats, I haven’t listened to them in a dog’s age.

Living with a (DirecTV) Genie in the House
A while back, I told you guys about the release of DirecTV’s top-of-the-line HD DVR, the Genie. Shortly after that announcement, I got my hands on one of the boxes, and have been using it as my main DVR for the last 6 months or so.

2013 Cadillac ATS Loaded with Tech (Not Your Daddy’s Caddy)

TYLT PowerPlant External Battery Pack: Never Run out of Juice Again
No matter what smartphone you have, at some point in time, even if you’ve got a 2,300 mAh battery, you’ll end up needing a juice up. While there are plenty of battery cases available, these kinds of products quickly become obsolete once the format of your smartphone changes.

2013 Chevy Volt Test Drive: Living the Life Electric
A little while back, I had a chance to drive the Chevrolet Volt during the Chicago-to-Evanston EV Rally for a couple of hours. My curiosity was piqued enough by that experience that I arranged with GM to put the little plug-in hybrid through its paces for a full week.

RHA MA-450i Earphones Review: Good Price, Great Sound
The cords on headphones and earbuds tend to break, especially if you use yours everyday – so I’ve become accustomed to buying new ones pretty frequently. These from RHA are a welcome surprise, as they have a durable cord design and I wasn’t expecting this kind of sound quality for such a modestly-priced pair.

LG Optimus G Review: The “G” Stands for “Great” Smartphone
I’ll start out this review by saying that I’ve been an avid iPhone user since the day the first model came out. I just haven’t seen an Android phone I liked well enough to even consider a switch – until now.

Braven 625s Bluetooth Speaker Review: Frustratingly Packaged, But Solid Sound
Bluetooth speakers are getting quite common, but it’s only when you use one yourself that you realize how useful they can be, especially if they are multi-functional. The Braven 625s is the company’s rugged version, and I decided that it should be able to survive my backpack, so when I was offered a choice for a model to review, I decided on this one.
