Jumbl™ Mini Hidden Spy Camera Radio Clock w/&hellip by Jumbl
I've often wondered what the cats may be doing when we're not around. The Jumbl Mini Hidden Spy Camera can help resolve that, as well as keeping an eye on areas where you don't want people to know that there's a record of what they were doing when "no one's around"...

The Jumbl looks like a regular (albeit small) clock radio. The radio is a cube that's only 3.5" long and 2" deep. The buttons at the top control the volume as well as the menu display for the various features. The back of the unit has the on/off switch, the mini-USB slot for charging, a line-in port for streaming from something like an iPhone, a headset port, and a slot for a micro-SD card. The sound… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful design..., Aug. 24 2014
I'm going to be doing my first live presentation in a while, so the offer to review the Bolse Wireless Presenter with Laser Pointer was perfect timing.

The pen itself fits naturally in my hand without feeling like I'm trying to hold something in a certain position. The line of four buttons are laid out how I would expect to press them without a lot of thought. The one at the top (closest to my thumb) is… Read more
Bolse® High Output 3-Port USB Car Charger (25W / 5&hellip by Bolse
I like this Bolse 3-Port USB Car Charger, as it gives me a number of capabilities, not the least of which is the ability to charge three things at once. It's a hard combination to beat, especially if you're a person who has a mobile device that uses micro-USB plugs.

The Bolse charger is very compact at only 2.5" long. Once plugged in, there's not a whole lot sticking out. A unique feature of this charger is the attached coiled cord for the micro-USB connector. If you have an Android-style phone or if you want to charge your Kindle, everything is attached in one package. No extra cords floating around. However, there are also two regular USB ports on either side of the cord… Read more
