Best Single Cup Coffee Maker

The AeroPress makes what may be the best cup of coffee you’ve ever tasted!

Aeropress New

Is there anyone who hasn’t seen or tried the latest single serve coffee makers? They’re all the rage lately. These amazing machines consistently make great coffee from tiny pods that are both easy to use, and easy to throw away. The Keurig is one of the biggest sellers these days and works great for those without much time in the morning (our review of Keurig can be found here). Looking for alternatives on the web I stumbled upon a little contraption called the Aerobie AeroPress. Let me tell you about this device…. with a little bit of hands-on effort it literally makes the best cup of coffee you may ever taste. Read More »

Amazon Prime – What is it, and is it worth the cost?

Amazon Prime has been around for quite awhile. I’m sure you’ve heard about it somewhere, but probably have also wondered; is it really worth the cost (currently $99 per year)? Amazon Prime benefits include Free 2-day shipping for thousands of products sold by Amazon, free streaming video including movies and TV shows, and the ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library.

AV Receiver Guide – Home Theater

Check out some of the latest models with 4K Ultra HD compatibility now included in this AV Receiver Guide for Home Theater


The A/V Receiver… Some have referred to this device as “The “Heart of the Home Theater”. And for good reason; this one device is the central component of your entire system, controlling how each one is seen and heard by you and/or your audience based upon your input. This gives us good reason to put much thought in selecting one. As with my previous guides to choosing products that are “right for you”, I’ve gone through the paces of owning various brands and types of receivers, along with online and in-store research, summed up is what follows. Receivers range in price from a few hundred to many thousands of dollars. In the low price range, the differences are largely based upon their features. When it comes down to it, most higher-end receivers are packed with features most people would never need or use, or hear the difference. If you happen to be one of those who can distinguish the difference and know what you’re looking for, I’ve also included many technical specs. Read More »

Soundbar Guide

Klipsch SoundbarSoundbars – The Basics and How to Choose

Over the last 5 years and especially most recently, the soundbar marketplace has been booming, making them nearly as present as TVs in our homes. Its a good thing, too, because as TVs get thinner and thinner,  there is less room than ever before for built-in speakers. Consumers don’t need to see big, bulky speakers devastating their TV’s appearance, let alone their viewing rooms. Manufacturers have taken to placing the speakers on the rear or minimal front portion of the TV. As you can guess, small speakers and especially when located on the back typically don’t sound very good. Read More »

Where To Get ADA Training

Are you looking for where to get the required ADA training in California?

For architectural license renewal in the state of California there is a requirement to complete 5 hours of Continuing Education related to Disability Access. It can be quite confusing trying to figure out where to get the right training. About a month or two prior to your license renewal date you may be receiving tens to hundreds of e-mails along with snail-mail advertising various companies wanting your hard-earned money in exchange for their training. The state’s Bill SB 1608 language appears somewhat vague to some as to what may actually qualify as valid training to satisfy the requirement. An unbiased review/guide may be useful. Read More »
