Day in the Life of Softball, The Dragoncast, and Home Improvements

Metallman
Perfect day to be out, catching a softball game!

Hey there. Looks like I'm going group the weekend into one post. I planned on doing daily posts but that just wasn't in the cards this weekend. Maybe this will be the norm, maybe this will be just a one time thing. Let's see how the weekend went down.

Megadream Built-in Adjustable Fans Cooling Dock for the Xbox One S Review

Xbox One S Megadream Cooling Dock
Keeping your high powere gaming console is a must there days
Hey there.  You guys know I love my video games.  I own consoles from the big three (Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft) and I can't say that I have my favorite.  Each one provides a different gaming experience to me and I wouldn't trade it in for anything.  That's why I want to do what I can to protect my gaming consoles.  I don't want them to crap out on me or have them overheat.  Let's not forget the dreaded red ring of death that plagued 360's everywhere *shudder*  That's why I love the idea of cooling fans for gaming consoles.  So when our good friends at Megadream ask for me to test out and review their Built-in Adjustable Fans Cooling Dock for the Xbox One S, I couldn't resist the opportunity!

Mozeat Lens POL-BL01 Telephoto Camera Lens Kit Review

Mozeat Lens
A camera lens add on to enhance smartphone pictures?!
You have my attention, Mozeat!!!
Hey there.  I'm a, "take a picture", type of guy.  I love beautiful scenery, I love action shots, I love taking a picture of anything that's pretty awesome, actually.  But, like most people, I don't carry around a super awesome camera with me.  Most of the time, all I have is my smartphone with me and while it does a great job for selfies and relatively close shots, it won't do so well when it comes to taking a picture of something that's a little ways off.  My smartphone camera simply will not take a great picture when zoomed in.  If only I can get a better picture with my smartphone...  If you find yourself asking that question as well, then you're in luck because Mozeat has you covered!  Mozeat offers a wide array of camera lens that you can attach to your smartphone to help you capture the best possible shot!  And I was fortunate enough to receive the Mozeat Lens POL-BL01 Telephoto Lens to test out and review.  This is one spiffy looking lens and to be honest with you, I don't think I've seen camera lens that are made for smartphones before this one.  I'm sure you are just as intrigued as I was when I first received this lens so let's get to it!  But first, let's talk SPECS!

Mpow Swift Bluetooth Headphones Review

Hey there.  I love music and I'm always looking for ways to enhance my music loving ways.  Whether that be getting a sound bar for my TV, getting a great Bluetooth speaker, or getting an awesome set of headphones so that I can listen to music wherever I am.  The thing is, though, that I commute a few hours to work each day and I can't take speakers with me so headphones are what I'm using the most at the moment.  This is why I was extremely thankful to our friends at Mpow for sending me their Mpow Swift Bluetooth Headphones to try out and review.  I've had my fair share of headphones and I've had some great ones and I've had some bad ones.  I can honestly say that Mpow's headsets have not disappointed and I hope that the Swift Blutooth Headphones will follow suit.  So before I get into my experience, let's talk specs.

Awesome UFO design allows you to hang it against a wall!
Hey there.  You can never have enough Bluetooth speakers.  There are so many designs that you need to test them out to see which ones work best for you.  I've had the privilege to try out small speakers, large speakers, pill looking speakers, and even take me hiking speakers... but I must say that my favorite so far has to be this M2R UFO Bluetooth Speaker.  Our good friends provided me with this Bluetooth speaker to try out and review and it definitely is at the top of my list.  Not only because of the shape, but because of the exceptional sound, booming bass, and... well... because it's a UFO!  lol  Before I fill you in on my experience, let's talk specs.
