Wow: Bose Sent Me A Soundlink Micro!

My relationship with Bose began way back in 2008. I had just left for college and when I returned home for winter break I discovered a pair of unopened Bose headphones in my dad’s office. He had been given a set as a corporate gift that year and didn’t know what to do with them.…
Returning My Bose SoundSport Free Headphones

I’ve been using Bose headphones for the better part of a decade now. Since my first pair of Bose QC2s I’ve owned the QC15, QC20, QC25, and now QC35 headphones. I’ve also had two sets of Bose SoundSport wired headphones. Overall I just love Bose. While their products are a bit on the pricy side…
Travel Tech: Mobile Passport – My Favorite Travel App

Recently people have begun asking me an odd question. They want to know what travel related mobile app is my favorite? I say this is an odd question because I don’t use many travel apps. Well, I don’t use many travel apps other than those of airlines and hotels. See, for as much as the…
Travel Tech: A Few Weeks With The Bose Soundsport Free Headphones

I’ve had the Bose Soundsport Free headphones for just under a month now and I’ve logged a ton of hours with them. I haven’t used them while working out as much as I should have, but I did get a ton of use from them during my recent around the world mileage run. I have…
Travel Tech: Bose Soundsport Free First Impressions

I’ve been in the market for a new pair of headphones for a while now. I’ve specifically looking for a good pair of wireless headphones ever since Apple dropped the headphone jack on the iPhone 7. The obvious choice is of course the Apple Airpods. While Airpods seem like the best option, I have a…
United Airlines App Now Allows Partner Airline Check-In

While Delta Air Lines definitely has the best mobile app overall, I’d argue Untied’s comes in as a close second. What the app lacks in day of travel functionality, it gains in the booking experience. The United app makes it incredibly easy to book flights. Even better, it’s equally easy to book award flights through…
Why I Generally Don’t Like Seat Back IFE Screens

In an attempt to cut costs even further, many airlines are opting out of installing seat-back entertainment screens on short-haul aircraft. Seat-back screens may seem small, but they’re actually quite large and quite heavy. Many forget that seat-back screens also come with huge hard drives that are typically located under the seats. All of those…
I Bought And Crashed A DJI Mavic Pro

The other day I wrote about how amazing the DJI Spark is for traveling. DJI created a drone that takes HD video and photo that’s only slightly bigger than a large cell phone. Even cooler, the drone flies without a controller and instead uses your face and hand gestures! If you haven’t heard of the…
Is The Electronics Ban Expanding To Flights From Europe?

Several weeks ago the Department of Homeland Security announced a new ban. This time the DHS didn’t ban people, but instead banned large portable electronics on all US bound flights which originated in specific Middle Eastern countries. A few days later the United Kingdom released a similar electronics ban. At the time many aviation analysis predicted this…
Travel Tech: Preview Flights On Apple iOS

I recently stumbled upon a really cool feature from Apples’ iOS on the iPhone that makes tracking your flights and the flights of others extremely easy. Evidently Apple released this feature back in late 2015. However, I just realized it existed this past weekend when texting flight numbers to my mother. The feature allows iOS or…
