    While previous generations of the Razer Blade were solid gaming-specific machines and veritable showcases of clever design, each one always brought something that still left folks somewhat underwhelmed. The 2014 refresh of the 14-inch Razer Blade, however, appears to be ending that streak, bringing what looks, on paper, to be the, hands down, ultimate gaming machine you can take around without breaking your back. Unlike last generation’s disappointing display, the new 14-inch iteration boasts a 3200 x 1800 IPS screen. [...]

    Surfears Protect Your Ears In Water Without Shutting Out Ambient Sound

    Spending extended hours engaged in watersports sounds fun.  Experiencing ear inflammation and abnormal bone growth in the ear canal from extended exposure to water, cold air, dirt, and bacteria, though — not so much.   While you can wear ear plugs to block out all the nasty elements, they, pretty much, render you deaf to what’s going on, apart from potentially affecting your balance.  Surfears, a custom-designed set of earplugs, can change that.
