By Gregg Ellman (@Greggellman) The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa is a great little tablet, especially combined with an Amazon Prime membership.

By Gregg Ellman (@Greggellman) The pocket-sized (4.0-by-2.0-by-0.6-inches) Alcomate Revo is a tremendous device for accurately reading an individual’s blood alcohol level so hopefully they don’t rely on judgment alone.

By Gregg Ellman (@Greggellman) Often readers ask me if they really need an item I’ve mentioned previously. For the most part, I won’t decide that for people.

By Gregg Ellman (@Greggellman) I get asked all the time by tech companies, how do they get their product in my column? It’s a pretty simple formula: it has to be new, cool, different and useful. Which brings me to the new Apple watch Survival Straps’ Watch Strap. Obviously, bands are a dime a dozen for the […]

By Gregg Ellman (@Greggellman) The bitplay SNAP! 7 iPhone case system is a solid and affordable way to use the iPhone’s digital photography features to create a true photography experience.
