I can't get my head around what I find to be the tinny sound of the Jambox - especially at volume. I find this to be the case for virtually all the mini-mono bluetooth speakers on the market these days. I love the size and portability, but not the sound. The so-called "Live Audio" mode, enabled by ...

Proraso aftershave balm - another reformulation

I absolutely adore Proraso's aftershave balm, so I'm disappointed to have to report that it's been reformulated coincident with the recent rebranding. Did we already discuss this and I missed it? It now comes in a squatter, squarer bottle and is a completely different product (apparently, I've not y...

Lots of issues with ziplock bags and the Kobo Touch Something that a simple addition of a next page button would have solved. Going 100% touch was utter stupidity for an e-ink reader. Yeah, for whatever reason, the industry/marketing guys decided that button-less was the way of the future ... I was...
