Gadling gear review: Outdoor Research women's Frescoe Hoody activewear

Gadling gear review: Outdoor Research women's Frescoe Hoody activewear Jan 14th, 2011 at 11:30AM: I love hoodies, and ever since I was old enough to waddle around in my brother's hand-me-downs (which unfortunately included his tighty-whiteys, until I was old enough to realize that, while my mom's thriftiness was admirable, clothing your daughter in boy's underwear was not), I've worn them. The versatility, quirky style, and marsupial-like comfort a great hoody can provide make it an unbeatable...

Travel Photography: Krome Photos service edits pictures for you

Travel Photography: Krome Photos service edits pictures for you Dec 25th, 2010 at 12:30PM: A funny thing happens to my travel photos after a trip. After uploading select pictures to Flickr or Picasa, my photos often languish unedited (and unseen) on my laptop. I tell myself that when I finally carve out some free time, I'll go back and properly edit the rest of the pictures and create a photo book or scrapbook to remember my vacation. Unfortunately, the photo folders keep multiplying...

New amenities for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol: Wi-Fi and golf! Dec 23rd, 2010 at 11:30AM: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has been considered one of the best airports in the world for as long as I can remember - even when I flew in and out of it every week back in early 80's, Schiphol had some of the best airport shopping of any airport. In recent years, the airport added a casino, loads of new restaurants, a spa, shower facilities, 2 hotels and a museum. And now two more...

Review: Motorola Finiti Elite Series Bluetooth headset

Review: Motorola Finiti Elite Series Bluetooth headset Dec 14th, 2010 at 5:00PM: Motorola has a long and well respected history in Bluetooth headsets.

Review: Sony Cyber-shot HX5V digital camera Dec 9th, 2010 at 6:00PM: Ask a geek to design the ultimate point and shoot camera, and the list of specifications would probably come close to the camera in this review.

Review: Livescribe Echo smartpen Dec 8th, 2010 at 10:00AM: Don't let the development in technology in recent years fool you - even though things like books and magazines have started to make the transition to "all digital", there is still a big market for people who like to keep things old school. One good example is the continuing popularity of Moleskine notebooks. Another great example of sticking with the old, is the Livescribe Smartpen. This...
