In ancient Egypt , Roman commander Caesar (Robert Cuccioli), head of a conquering army, h...

Lessons Learned From Spending $1000+ on Prime Day

I always plan any big purchases months and months in advance. I simply shut down when it comes to spending money spontaneously. That’s one of my secrets to my frugality. Spending money can often cause me incredible mental stress. (Yep, I’m not mornal.) Before Amazon Prime Day, I had resigned myself to take advantage of one deal. I think the Amazon Fire HD 10 is a great deal and I feel that my kids need to have their own space and apps. Remember when everyone loved the $99 HP Touchpad fire...

Bose previews voice controlled on-ear headphones and a pair of wireless earbuds

Bose just announced a trio of new headphones today. The company used the opportunity to primarily focus on the dryly named Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, which purport to sport “the biggest leap forward in headphones since the iconic QuietComfort.” A big claim, to be sure, especially given how much that line has come to define the category. The new headphones apparently use the QuietComfort line as a sort of stepping stone, adding in voice control through Google Assistant and Alexa (plus Siri ...

Edifier’s shockingly great S3000Pro wireless speakers blow away Sonos and Bose

I have a Sonos system in my home and I have always been impressed with the sound quality. To my ear, it's far better than comparable Bose systems because the sound is more natural and the tuning is far better. I test plenty of speakers from other brands as well, but nothing has ever topped Sonos for me unless you're willing to spend some serious cash. That all changed recently, however, when I received a pair of Edifier S3000Pro Audiophile Active Speakers to test. I've had them for a...
