Review: TCL 32” Roku Smart LED TV– Ideal for Cord Cutters & Small Spaces

We consume media on our tablets and Smartphones, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to relax with a cold one in front of the TV.

Duct Tape and Tablets Don’t Mix

Protective gear and proper mounts like iKlip 3 keep your tablets safe and secure

Today, it’s not uncommon to see video being captured on a tablet with high-definition cameras now built-in. However, if you plan on using one to stream Facebook Live, Instagram or collect footage for your next viral YouTube video make absolutely certain it’s properly secured before you hit the record button.
