This tire inflator is an innovative, impressive achievement. It’s the best tire inflator I’ve ever seen. I had no idea there was a device that would let you dial in a tire pressure number and then pump up your car tire to exactly that pressure — and then turn off automatically. It’s magical, really.
I had a leaky tire for so long, and got tired of PAYING FOR AIR to pump it up. Now? Bye bye, 50-cent gas-station air!
When I looked at the pics of it on Amazon, I thought it was much bigger. That is not the case. This little tire inflator is scarcely larger than a football, so I stow it away in the trunk and always know it’ll be there, ready to go. A quick plug-in of its nice long cable to the car’s cigarette lighter and it springs into action.
Hard to believe a convenience like this costs less than $33. Glad I bought it!
It didn’t take long for me to discover that the RAVPower Power Bank is a premium device. When I plugged my iPhone into it, it began charging automatically. It turns itself off, too.
This 10,000mAh charger is cool. It’s solidly built. Its padded carry case keeps it from banging around against other objects in my bag. Best of all, I got more than two full iPhone charges out of it. I am impressed — strong buy.
“Everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it,” said Mark Twain, long before the advent of the personal weather station.
You still can’t really do anything about the weather but you can certainly measure it, report about it, collect live weather data and send it to the Internet and display the results all over your house. That’s been my passion over the past 15 years, and I’ll show you how you can do it with your own personal weather station. Continue reading

I’ve been looking for the perfect smartphone dock, and I’ve tried several candidates so far. My next contender is the Sarvi Dock, an undulating aluminum stand whose makers claim it works with a variety of cases and smartphones. Let’s see what it can do.
My writing partner John Biggs (TechCrunch, Gizmodo, The New York Times) and I talked with a cool guy the other day. Bob Andelman, known worldwide as “Mr. Media,” asked us about our newly released second edition of Bloggers Boot Camp. We talked about the book and a lot more for the better part of an hour.

Bob asked us some great questions about blogging, creating content, and generally being cool on the Internet. Johnny and I talked about our experiences at Gizmodo, NBC Universal, Mashable and TechCrunch, and made each other laugh while we tossed out a plethora of blogging tips.
It was a great treat to be able to hang out with John in our first dual interview. Enjoy!
The newly released Galaxy S5 brings a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU and a gorgeous 5.1″ display to your hands, but only a 2800mAh battery. Brando has aimed to address this by releasing its Power Jacket series of cases in both covered and non-covered versions and with different battery capacities.
I put the $33 non-covered 3500mAh version of the case to the test for two weeks and gathered some real-world performance data and observations.
