Geek Gear Review: Everpurse, The Purse That Charges Your Phone
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Everpurse #1

One of the confounding problems with modern mobile devices is how to keep them charged. Sure, the battery on your mobile phone or tablet will last all or much of the day if you just take a few calls, or surf the web at the local Wi-Fi hot spot. Sadly, that’s not all we usually do. Set up e-mail on your mobile device, and the battery drain increases. Play a few rounds of games like Angry Birds or Candy Crush Saga and battery levels drop even faster. Then there’s that hour-long call with a friend or for business. What’s a person to do? Carry a power supply and cable to plug in to any electrical outlets to be found? Carry a battery-backed charger? Find a device case that contains a backup battery?

Alas, none of these alternatives has been particularly well thought out in the consumer space. Finding outlets can be awkward, especially when traveling. Battery backed chargers can have cables that make them awkward to carry when not being used. Other chargers attach directly to the unit, making them cumbersome to charge while in a pocket or purse. Device cases with batteries can substantially add to the profile of the devices themselves, can deny the opportunity to use a decorator case or skin, and can be more quickly prone to failure before the devices they contain.

Top 5 Essentials For The Ultimate Gamer Cave
Your Highness   |  

Gamer Cave

So you’ve managed to convince the woman of the house that a man cave is one of the essential rooms, only behind the kitchen and the bathroom. She claims the concept is almost as immature as the “No Girls Allowed” sign on your tree house from your elementary school days. I’m happily not one of those women. In fact, I’ll probably help you hang the beer signs!

In addition, I understand. This room is more than just a room. It’s a place where your geekiness can be expressed, where you and your buddies can relax (and drink), and where you can get your gaming on.

For the ultimate “gamer cave,” make sure you have these five essential items…
