M2R UFO Bluetooth Speaker Review

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.

Mpow Dual Rapid USB Port Car Charger with Xsmart Technology Review

Look at the only car charger that you will ever need!
Hey there.  How many of you have a car charger to charge your mobile devices?  I'm pretty sure most of you raised your hands.  How many of you figured that they are all the same and it doesn't matter what kind of charger you have as long as it charges your phone?  Well friends, you are WRONG!  It definitely matters!  I've tried many USB port car chargers and I've seen others use theirs.  What I come away from those experiences is that most of us struggle with the car chargers.  Either the car charger is under powered or your device is unsupported.  The last thing I would have expected is to have multiple car chargers for different devices!  Well, fear not, friends!  Mpow has all of your devices covered!  All you need is the Mpow Dual Rapid USB Port Car Charger with Xsmart Technology!  Our good friends at Mpow provided me with one to test out and review and after having weeks with it in my car, I can definitely say that this is one of the best car chargers that I have ever had!  Before I go into my experience, let's talk specs.

What I'm Playing... Seed 4 Lord of War

Hey there. Mobile gaming is everywhere now a days. You can play games on your handheld gaming system, smartphone, or tablet.  It's impossible not to be sucked into a complete time waster (Flappy Bird, anyone?) or get immersed in total war with others (Clash of Clans).  So when a mobile game is recommended to me, I always check it out to see if it falls in one of the above categories.  So what's my latest time waster?  Seed 4!  Seed 4 is the 4th installment in the Seed series.  I haven't had a chance to check out the previous three but I have had a chance to play this one and you know what... I'm loving it!

Amazon Introduces the Kindle Fire HDX

The new Kindle Fire HDX starting at $229!
Hey there.  I currently own a Kindle Fire HD.  I love the damn thing.  It's constantly being used at home.  Either by my wife, the kids, or myself.  Someone always wants to use it.  And why not?  It's great for web browsing, videos look awesome, and because it's powered by Android, you get a whole slew of apps to browse through.  I really thought that the Kindle Fire HD would be the tablet to take over the tablet market... but now, a new tablet has been announced.  It's faster, lasts longer, and it's has an even better display.  And no... it's not from Apple or Samsung or ASUS or Google... it's from Amazon themselves.  They've improved the Kindle Fire HD and have created the Kindle Fire HDX!

RAVPower Dynamo On The Go Power Bank Review

Hey there.  Who here has a mobile device?  You know... a tablet or a smart phone.  In this day and age, just about every one and their grandma has one.  I'm guilty of owning several devices!  I have a Kindle Fire, a few iPods, and a few smart phones in our household.  And you know what... it can be a pain to have to charge all the devices at once.  Our "charging station" is full of adapters and chargers that it's not even funny.  Anyways, when your family is as dependant on mobile devices as mine is, the last thing you want to see is "low battery" on any of them.  And you knowwhat... it happens a lot!  The kids are listening to music or watching videos on thier iPods, the wife is pinning away on the Kindle Fire, and I'm checking in on sports on the phone.  With the heavy usage that we put into our devices, it's bound to happen.  But you know what... it sucks when it does.  That usually means you have to stop doing what you are doing and go to the "charging station."  In our family, that means you're stuck in a corner, attached to a wall charger and that's no fun.  But that's about to change now.  Our good friends over at RAVPower provided me with a RAV Power Dynamo on the Go Power Bank to try out and review!  It's an external battery where you can charge your mobile devices without having to be confined to a wall outlet.  I've had the pleasure of trying out and testing the Dynamo on the Go Power Bank for the past week and I am now ready to let you guys know how awesome it is. Let's get to it!

Plants Vs Zombies - Kindle Fire Edition Review

Hey there.  I know that Plants Vs. Zombies has been around for some time.  I even gave away of the Xbox 360 version to a winner sometime last year.  Yet, I never actually played the game myself.  That is, until now.  I recently saw the Plants Vs. Zombies Kindle Fire Edition on sale and I had to jump on it.  With so many positive reviews and friends everywhere saying that I should try it, I finally jumped on board.  And guess what, it's pretty awesome!  I'm glad that I managed to snag it at an awesome price!  The kids and I love it and even my 2 year old has gotten into the action.  He doesn't know how to play the game but he asks to see the zombies and will gladly sit and watch someone else play.  lol  Here is my review of Plants Vs. Zombies the Kindle Fire Edition.

Person of Interest Microfiber Cloth

Whoo hoo!  Thanks Klout Perks!!!
Hey there.  Look at the awesome swag that I received from Klout Perks!  Ok... ok... so it's a small microfiber cloth with a reminder to watch Person of Interest on CBS, but it's still pretty cool, no?  I still get excited when I receive stuff in the mail because of my online influence.  It makes me feel lucky that this thing we all call the internet is a great way to share thoughts, ideas, and whatever else you want and someone out there is willing to thank you for being somewhat awesome.  lol  It is why I always take the time to give a little shout out about what ever it is that I receive.  Whether it's negative or positive!  So let me give you a quick run down of the microfiber cloth.

Not All of Them About Zombies: A Book Review

Hey there. I need to read more. I haven't read a good book since my last attempt to read literary classics. I bought 2 books that I have read and love, Siddhartha and Cather in the Rye, and that was about it. Now that there's a Kindle Fire in the house, I'm going to try this reading business again.  I think it's great that you can borrow books to read if you're an Amazon Prime member and I'm hoping to get some reading done using the service.  The first book up for review? Not All of Them About Zombies by Matthew Rowe.

Not All of Them About Zombies is a collection of short stories. The short stories range from humorous to horror. At 196 pages, it is a pretty short book that can be finished in a single sit through. Even though the stories are short, they are thought provoking and the absolute best part of the book is the introduction. It gives a glimpse of Matthew Rowe's train of thought of how the story came to be. It gives you that insight that makes you want to read the stories to see how they panned out.  I found that after reading the short introduction, I wanted to skip ahead to check out the story.  What twist did he add?  How was his interpretation of a thought was a conveyed?  What spin on a classic tale did he use?  The only problem that I had with the introduction is that all of the stories introductions were grouped together.  It would have been better if the intro were to be placed right before the story.  This would avoid having to go back and re-read the intro before reading the short story, like I did for each one.

Renew Your Energy with Zipfizz Healthy Energy Drinks

Hey there.  Like millions across the world, I have started the new year with some goals in mind (I refuse to call them resolutions).  The one that I'm primarily focused on is my goal to be more fit.  I'm not fat, well, I at least I don't think so, but I know that I get a little on the tired side when I shouldn't.  For example, walking up stairs.  lol  I'm been working out on and off throughout last year.  I even did the Insanity workout for a few weeks.  Yup... weeks.  lol  Anyways, I find myself needing some energy during the day.  If you don't have the proper fuel for your body, you will drag during your workouts.  Trust me, I should know this.  I've tried quite a few energy drinks and my current favorite are the Rockstar drinks.  But that doesn't mean I'm not willing to try a new one.  The latest energy drink that's on my radar?  Zipfizz!

Not bad friends, not bad at all. Later!
