Everyone knows that the name Hercules is associated with great strength and integrity. Now, with their new backpack of the same name, EC-BC has done a most excellent job of creating a high-quailty backpack that embodies those same qualities of strength and integrity.
The Hercules is a stylish bag that looks nothing like a military issue pack, nor even a particularly rugged bag. But don't let its fashionably attractive appearance decieve you! The Hercules is every bit as tough and durable as many "military standard" backpacks! In fact, with its superior craftsmanship and intense attention to detail, the Hercules is actually more rugged than many military issue bags that I have evaluated over the years! Now that's saying something...

I have been a big Sonos fan for years. If you are not familiar with the high-quality line of wireless music systems, please do yourself a favor this holiday season and either search our site (keyword "Sonos"), check my latest Play:3 review here, or simply go to their home page here. It is the single best wireless music system I have reviewed. Anyway, the point is to inform that a recent update to the iOS application experience now includes streaming from your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. You needed a dock accessory in previous versions to do this, so it is indeed a very cool enhancement... Read on for full details.

It's always nice to have a portable auxiliary speaker around the house or when you travel. I especially enjoy having a mobile sound system in my garden while I'm working or relaxing. Cubedge speaker fits the bill perfectly.
The Edge is compact but delivers exceptional quality sound. It measures approximately 6 x 2.25 x 2.25 inches and weighs in at 10.75 ouches. It comes in an attractive, non-intrusive white or black rubberized case that protects the unit and will blend in with any decor.

My youngest daughter was nicknamed 'The Factory' at nursery school, due to the sheer volume of artwork she turned out. Sure, we are proud parents, but if I kept everything, I'd be labeled a hoarder. As a parent, I'm guilty of secretly depositing those works of art in the recycle bin. But you simply can't preserve everything your kids create, in school, camp, or at home.

Apple has never won any points with me over their goofy, big old proprietary connectors that are wider than a clown smile.
With the advent of iPhone 5 and kindred products, Apple has elected to change it connector, which will be a great inconvenience to current users. At least they could have switched to a universal format such as USB micro so that there would not be to so many types of cables to worry about, especially on the road.

Okay, let me start by saying I've never engaged in a more extreme sport than off-road motocross. Hands down, of all the sports I've been involved with over this lifetime, including Shotokan Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Single-handed sailing, track or kayaking to name a few, none has ever beat the living-daylights out of me like off-road motorcycle riding.
Now I will admit to delusions of grandeur at times, when I am out there racing my brother, catching air and eating dirt, thinking about turning pro... but that said, I do ride pretty hard and fast and as a result I've had my fair share of bumps and bruises (and sprains and breaks too!) over the years.
