This is only an un-box / first look at the Logitech G900 mouse, I plan on doing a full review of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum mouse in about a week or so, but just know this; The LOGITECH G900 is the best gaming mouse I have ever bought!

iPhone 7 cases

All 3 Apple branded cases... If you are thinking of buying any of the 3 I'd recommend the battery case first. If you are not into the battery case then get the leather case from Apple.

The leather case feels much better than the last few iterations, especially the new button design. With the older leather cases, the button part of the case always wore down and made the button area flat and sometimes hard to press! These new leather cases not only look good, but they feel good in the hand. ;)

I don't really like the silicone case, it feels much more slippery compared to the iPhone 6/6s cases. It almost feels like the case has baby powder on it or something. If you have ever tried to bring back a deck of cards by sprinkling baby powder on them, then that is what this case feels like, it brings it back to life but too slippery.

Also, if you are wanting a case that makes the phone less slippery, then I would not recommend any of these options to help with that. The iPhone 7 is the most "un-slippery" iPhone since the iPhone 5s flat side iPhone's.

I am not really a case person, but I need a case for winter weather, so....

Smart battery case ($100);
Leather case ($45);
Silicon case; ($35)

Cambond iPhone 7 Screen Protector

 Cambond iPhone 7 screen protector is available on Amazon;

If you have an iPhone 7 then you might want to consider protecting the screen, especially if you plan on trying to sell it next year when the next iPhone is released. A screen without scratches will result in a higher resale value.

If you have the black iPhone 7, tiny scratches or any scratches for that matter are much more visible than on the white iPhone. Scratches or "micro abrasions" are more visible in direct sunlight too, like when you are using your iPhone outside in the sun, they will show up more clearly.

This Cambond screen protector comes with all the accessories needed to apply the protector to your iPhone 7. You don't need to worry about bubbles as the protector is a harder plastic that will not bubble when you apply it to your iPhone 7. I have had the screen protector on my iPhone 7 for 3 days now without any issues. The screen still functions as it does without the screen protector on my iPhone 7.

You get 2 screen protectors in the box if you decide to remove it then you will have a backup screen protector. Also, there are zero issues using this screen protector with the Apple branded cases. I use a battery case from Apple and the screen protector does not interfere with the case fitting properly.

Cambond Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

 $19.99 on Amazon;

If you are looking for a Bluetooth speaker to stream audio from your smart-phone then you should check out the Cambond Bluetooth Wireless speaker. This speaker comes in two colors; the blue you see here as well as a solid black speaker. Personally I liked the blue as it added some flavor to my desk!

The speaker has a nice, loud sound to it. I would say it is easily triple the output of what the phone speaker outputs. It has some nice bass in the music too, depending on the type of music you listen to then this is something you probably want when listening to music.

The speaker also has features such as volume control, forward/reverse to next or previous song, play and pause, as well as the ability to plug in a phone via AUX cable. It does come with both the charging cable and the AUX cable for a wired connection. You can also take calls on the speaker as well.

If you bought an iPhone 7 / 7 Plus then this might be something to consider. Yes, you can use the adapter to connect the iPhone to this speaker via AUX cable. I have tested it and it works great with an iPhone 7.

A speaker like this is great for both music as well as podcasts; but, you can also connect your phone to the speaker if you want to watch a video or movie on your phone but want a better or louder sound when watching.

Cambond Milanese Band for Fitbit Alta

I recently purchased a Fitbit Alta to use to track my outdoor activities and I wanted to get a couple of different bands for my Alta. The Cambond Milanese band for Fitbit Alta is a beautifully designed strap that makes my Fitbit Alta look more like a fashion piece than a fitness tracker. I will most likely wear this band when I am not working out but when I am wearing my Fitbit Alta throughout the day to track my steps walked. The black Cambond strap matches the black Alta perfectly, the band is very easy to replace and takes no longer than 30 seconds to remove the stock bands and replace them with the Cambond Milanese band.

Here are some details for the Cambond Fitbit Alta Milanese band. It will fit wrist sized; minimum 5.71 in / 14.5cm to maximum 9.06 in / 23cm. It comes in two colors; black and silver. It features a magnetic clasp that will lock the band in place. I found the magnet to be very strong! Also, if your hand is too large to slide the band over, you can easily attach one-side of the band to the Alta, then put the Alta on your wrist and attach the other side of the band to the Alta; obviously your hand is much wider/larger than your wrist but even so it isn't an issue. I haven't noticed the band pulling on my arm hairs, but I don't have very hairy wrist so that is something I really don't have to worry about.

If you are looking for a second strap for under $20 for your Fitbit Alta then I highly recommend checking out the Cambond Milanese band. Not only does it feel great on the wrist, it looks terrific too!

Reflex Labs Gaming Mouse Pad

I ordered a new gaming mouse pad on Amazon and it arrived today. It's from Reflex Labs, it is 36" long X 12" wide. It also is the tall mat, which you can choose between heavy or heavy tall. They also come in three sizes of length; 9", 15" or 36".

$19 on Amazon;

I was using a Razer Firefly ( previously. I'll still use it but for certain games (BF / CoD) I need a larger pad area.

I like the thickness and mushy feel of the Reflex pad vs. hard surface area from Razer. Plus it will help with my keyboard from sliding when FPS gaming.

I have a short video of it here;

Cambond Bluetooth Earphones

Looking for a nice pair of wireless Bluetooth earphones but you do not want to play a lot of money? Looking for an inexpensive pair of Bluetooth earphones to use when working out or jogging? Then you need to checkout the Cambond wireless 4.1 Bluetooth earphones which are only $28.99 on Amazon.

The Cambond wireless 4.1 Bluetooth earphones offer up to 10 hours of play time (with volume about 1/2 way up) on a full charge; a charge that only takes about 3 hours to charge from zero to full. The Cambond earphones are also rated IPX4 sweat-proof which makes them perfect for when working out or jogging! The earphones will work up to 10 meters or 30+ feet away from your phone too, so you can wear them in the office or house and not have to worry about carrying your phone with or losing connection when streaming music or listening to a podcast. Another great aspect of these earphones is that they are noise-canceling so you will not hear most distracting noises in the background while wearing this headphones.

I have had these headphones for about a week now and I am still no my first full battery charge. The sound is a nice balance of bass and mids but neither are drowned out by the other. The bass wasn't too thick but it had an overall nice balance to it, or at least for genre of music I listen to. They were loud enough that I never felt like I needed to raise the volume on them but they didn't bust my eardrums either. With any Bluetooth headphone/earphone when you compare it to a corded pair of headphone/earphones; of course most corded headphones/earphones are going to be louder, but I would say these are more than adequate for the majority of users. I would have not problem recommending them!

Some other notable features include the ability to play/pause music or adjust the volume with the volume rocker that is on the cable attaching one earphone to the other. You can also use these earphones to take phone calls which is a nice addition. If you have an Apple Watch or Android Watch you could answer calls on your watch and never have to take your phone out of your pocket, use the earphones to talk and hear the conversation. I tested there earphones with both my iPhone 6s Plus and my Nexus 5x and it connected with both devices via Bluetooth with zero issues.

In terms of wearing them they were decently comfortable, the body is a tad large but since they hand over your ear they are not heavy or they don't weigh your ear down while wearing them. The ear-hook is adjustable so they will fit most ears comfortably. The hook is something I think makes these better to wear than Bluetooth earphones without the hook, you never have to worry about them falling out of your ear as the hook keeps them in place. These earphones also come with different size rubber earplugs so you can fit them perfectly in your ear for an optimal user-experience. I plan on wearing these all winter, I can keep my phone in my pocket and not have to hassle with running a cable through my jacket just to listen to music when outside in 20 degree weather!

The Cambond Earphones come in 2 colors;
Black on Black Earphones;
Black and Blue Earphones;

About this post. This is my daughters first YouTube video that she shot on her iPhone and edited in Final Cut Pro X. So as a show of support I am sharing it to as many places as I can to show her how I proud I am of her. If you have any interest in fashion or makeup, I would love it if you could give her a thumbs up and maybe even subscribe to her YouTube channel, or just leave a nice comment for her. 

I am trying to promote her continued creativity by encouraging her to keep creating content for YouTube. 


Belkin USB-C cable

I finally grabbed a USB-C to USB-A cable for my Nexus 5X, so I can use it with my Phantom 4.

I tested flying my 5x today in split-screen, it works but is buggy. I was using YouTube as the second app which is good if you want to Live Stream to YouTube from the Phantom 4 and will enable you to actually see comments that you can respond to in the YouTube app when in split-screen. Currently only Facebook allows you to see comments and you can't respond to those either other than commenting verbally.

I grabbed my 3-foot cable on Amazon for $23.. it supports USB 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1.
