Welcome to my virtual playground!



“My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world.”
-- George Bernard Shaw



What do I do: I take digital gadgets and dissect them with analog, real-world reviews.

I buy my gadgets, use them extensively and report my findings. I always go thru multiple copies of the product, if gadget fails.

My reviews are brutal but honest, just as anyone’s training might be.

Bluetooth earbuds are the prime focus, but I also test activity trackers, smart watches, health and fitness platforms. Ratings and quick links are under the cut.

Thanks for stopping by! For contacts, visit my profile.
