A problem I see with surveillance systems is that they look like surveillance systems. They stand out and for many that is what they want; for the criminal element to immediately see this property is being monitored somehow. For those wishing there was a…

If you haven’t purchased a portable Solid State Drive (SSD), then you might not know what you’re missing. When comparing an SSD to a Hard Disk Drive (HDD), you’ll find that SSDs are faster in every way, quieter, cooler-running, more durable (no moving…

It seems like everyone has a cylindrical portable speaker for sale, so at first glance, the VAVA Voom 20 may seem like a me-too product. But once you check out the features — and see the price — it might just win you over.

Let me begin this review of the new Xtreem Gravity Pursuit 1080p Video Drone by saying I have never flown a drone before. I am familiar with Swann flying products in the form of miniature RC helicopters but this is my first drone. I flew, I crashed, I…

Raina and I continue to add smart features to our home. We love the Haiku Smart Fan we installed and reviewed here on Gear Diary. (Read the review!) The next step in the process was adding a smart thermostat. I received a Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat for…

The new MacBook comes with a 29W power cube that serves its purpose well enough, but there are no bells and whistles like, oh, say, an extra USB charging port or a way to wrap the long USB Type-C power cord neatly. With that in mind, the RAVPower 36W Dual…

Over the past month I’ve taken a trip almost every weekend, and with the plenty of gadgets that I have to carry, I knew I was in great hands with This is Ground’s Tech Dopp Kit.

Everyone can understand technology; sometimes it just takes a little translating.
Introduction

We all have gear that we use daily – some of it electronic and some of it organic. We think it is fascinating to explore the equipment that makes our lives easier, more entertaining, more productive, and more manageable.

Our hope is that Gear Diary visitors will find this site to be a comfortable and friendly place to discuss interesting topics – and not only those that are tech related, as well as a location to discover various types of gear – whatever that term may end up implying – that they never knew existed.
