Unboxing and Hands On Review of the Amazon Echo Look

We just received our Amazon Echo Look (it’s currently by invitation only), and here is our review based on our initial impressions. First and foremost, this thing is much smaller than we ever would have imagined. Second, it is a full-on Amazon Echo, with Alexa and all of her tricks packed into its diminutive body. And third, it’s both more, and less, of a privacy nightmare than we’d initially thought it would be. Lastly, it’s great for selfies!

What’s the Big Deal about the Starry Internet Device? Not Much. At Least Not Yet.

If you run in certain circles, you may be hearing people swooning over the Starry Wireless Internet appliance and service. “Starry is a radical new Internet service!” “The Starry router requires no cable, no contract, no technician.” Starry “will revolutionize how we connect to the internet.” “When you move, you just take it with you!” Not so much, at least not yet.

List of Words that Will Get Your Amazon Review Rejected

There are many banned words that are prohibited in Amazon reviews, and that will get your review rejected in a New York minute.

Below are the words that we know or suspect will get your review rejected by Amazon – please help fellow Amazon reviewers by adding to this list.

How to Connect Zooka Wireless Bluetooth Speakers – and a Review

If you haven’t heard about the Zooka wireless (bluetooth) speaker bar (the speakers are at either end of a single bar), it’s a wireless bluetooth speaker for your iPhone or Android phone, or iPad or other tablet (or, even, your laptop). But the Zooka wireless bar instructions leave a lot to be desired in terms of explaining how to hook up your Zooka bluetooth speakers, so here are clearer instructions.

“Launch” Answers How to Launch an Internet Business, Product, App or Website

Launch, the new book from massively successful launch entrepreneur Jeff Walker, answers the questions “How to launch a startup” in the Internet world, as well as how to launch an app, how to launch a website, or even generally how to launch a product (after all, an app or a website is, by many measures, a product). It is equally applicable if you are looking to reboot a business, product, or service.

Our Pick for Best iPhone 4 and 4s Battery Case

We have toyed with the idea of getting an iPhone 4 case with battery for some time now, but until now we hadn’t done much beyond comparing the various iPhone 4 battery cases. But recently we found ourselves in need of an extended battery for the iPhone 4s (and thus an iPhone 4 extended battery case – or, as they are sometimes known, an iPhone 4 charger case). In fact, an iPhone 4 battery pack case, battery charger case, and battery case all refer to the same thing: an iPhone 4 rechargeable battery case. This is because a battery case for the iPhone 4 (and the iPhone 5, for that matter) contains an external battery pack which in turn feeds a charge to your native iPhone battery. This is our iPhone 4 battery case review with our pick for the best case, after looking at several types of iPhone charger cases (although we did not review the once-popular Exolife iPhone 4 battery case, as they are currenty not available).

Study Reveals that as Many as 16% of All Visits to Websites are from Bots, and 26% of All Traffic is “Aberrant”
