LifeActiv Bike and Bar Mount
LifeProof
Price: $40 U.S.

mount frontal

LifeActiv Bike and Bar Mount is a $40 solution for cyclists who want to attach a smart phone or music player to their bike’s handlebars. If you read the clumsy instructions carefully, the mount can be attached to a bike in a minute. It took me more than an hour because the instructions were botched at a crucial step.

Piston Classic In- Ear Headphones

Price: $20 U.S.

1More Negri classic buds

In the dizzying world of audio accessories, price is not always a good indicator of quality. These Piston Classic In-Ear Headphones from 1More are a remarkable buy for only $20. I have famous brand over-the-ear headphones that cost nearly 20 times that much and don’t sound as clean and pleasing as the attractive Piston Classics.

The field of full-sized Bluetooth keyboards for Mac is getting crowded. The earlier versions of Kanex’s multi-synch did not compete well against giants like Logitech and Zagg, but this latest Kanex entry may start to change that.

blumoo

Blumoo is a universal remote and Bluetooth hub that enables your iOS, Android, Apple Watch, and Amazon Echo to control your entertainment equipment and stream audio via a free mobile app. The installation was easy to set up but the configuration was a bit of a challenge. The Blumoo Universal Remote has a low profile, weighing 1.2 lb. and has dimensions of 2(L) x 2.8(W) x 2 (H) inches. It works by transmitting an infrared signal to any device that recognizes the programmed remote code. The mobile device must be at a distance of 150 feet or less to successfully connect via Bluetooth to the Blumoo. The mobile app is used to configure the remotes for your entertainment devices.

Thief: Master Thief Edition
U.S. $32.99
Feral Interactive

Thief crossbow Kube

Join the continued adventures of the master thief Garrett as he continues his adventures ten years after the end of the prior game. While this is almost into Duke Nukem Forever territory, Thief: Master Thief Edition game was actually worth the wait. From the start there is the same ambiance that the original games had, with lots of shadows and places to hide. The AI in the game can be annoying at times when it decides that a guard may hear something and stick around and peer into the shadows to try and find you. Fortunately, there are things that can be done about those nosey guards.

Macally Aluminum USB 3.0 External 2.5” SATA Hard Drive Enclosure
$25 U.S.
Macally

Kube Macally company photo

What’s thin light and has a shiny case?

That would be the Macally Aluminum USB 3.0 External 2.5” SATA Hard Drive Enclosure.  This tiny enclosure packs some serious speed. The enclosure comes as an empty shell. All it has in the box is the USB 3.0 cable and the lightweight aluminum shell. The enclosure is held together with four screws, two on each end. You can take off either end to insert your 2.5 inch drive but the end with the pretty blue light has to control electronics, so it would be best to take off this end for ease of installation.
