My relationship with Lexus started back in 2012 (http://www.gottahavegadget.com/ultimate-guys-weekend/). Through that weekend, I made a lot of friends at Lexus, their PR firm Team One, and several other bloggers. It was one of my first media trips, and I learned a lot from that experience. So it was no surprise to me that Lexus reached out to me about this program. I was aware of the Lexus Strike Out Hunger campaign where Lexus teamed up with the Boston Red Sox and NESN to donate $50 for every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher in 2016. In 2016 the Red Sox had 1362 strikeouts, Lexus donated $68,100 and 1,300 pounds of food to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Those donations helped provide over 200,000 healthy meals [more]
Although it’s April and there is still snow on the ground in New Hampshire, it is opening day at Fenway Park so spring can’t be too far away! Here are some Gotta Have Gadgets to help you enjoy the nice weather!
There are gadgets that are game changers, I consider the iWALK 2.0 a life changer! On December 16, 2016, I had triple arthrodesis surgery on my left foot. Don’t bother googling that, in layman’s terms, I had a few breaks and 5 screws put into my foot to correct a birth defect some 50 years ago. So for the next 10 weeks or so, I will be in some form of a splint or cast. Over my years of foot problems, I have been on and off crutches several times. During those times, I have come to the simple conclusion that crutches suck! Not only do crutches make it a PIA to get around, after long days, your under arms and shoulders start to hurt. [more]
The coolest thing that makes the Moto Z Droid a Gotta Have Gadget is simply the Moto Mods. Short for modular, the Moto Mods easily attach to the Z Droid to make this phone even more powerful!
When I didn’t make solid contact, or hit toward the heel of the club, there was a lot more forgiveness in these irons.
If you are a fan of HTC, I think the new options and feature in the HTC 10 will make you want to upgrade right away.
The first nice day in New England, I took the Stoner Car Care box out to the driveway and started to clean my car. I was actually amazed at how easy it was to clean my car to “detailed” quality with all these products.
I test drove the Rav4 Hybrid Limited edition for a period of one week. Over that week, I put about 500 miles in various conditions. I want to preface this by saying, I do not drive a hybrid trying to get every mile I can out of it, actually chances are I will be passing you on the highway in the high speed lane.
You see it all the time, the mad dash to find a plug to get a charge for a phone. The seats near a plug in an airport are the first ones taken all the time. In a recent trip to Walt Disney World, I found people waiting forever to charge their phone. How would you like to have enough power to charge your phone three times with only a 15 minute wait?
With so many cellphones, Bluetooth Speakers and tablets in my house, I have found I need more USB Power Supplies than I have outlets for! A great gift for a dorm room, or any room in your house is the Accell PowerGenius.
I would like to introduce you to Aspire Eyewear. The first thing I noticed when I opened the case was there is no hard connection to the glasses from the earpiece. You know what I am talking about, where that annoying screw is that always seems to need tightening. Aspire Eyewear’s design includes a screwless hinge that allows far more flexibility than any other glasses. As far as the earpieces, Aspire calls their proprietary material SDN-4, I simply call it brilliant! SDN-4 is a specially designed nylon that is incredibly strong, light weight, heat resistance material that gives you that “barely there” feeling. SDN-4 makes Aspire Eyewear 50% lighter and 50% thinner than plastic frames, and 22% lighter than titanium frames.

Our final destination on our experience Buick tour took us to Los Angeles. The LA Auto Show is the last of the big yearly auto shows and gives manufacturers a platform to introduce their 2017 premier vehicle. Buick took this opportunity to show everyone the 2017 Buick LaCrosse.
There are very few companies out there, that when you hear their name you automatically think great audio. Creative is one of those companies.
I had the opportunity to take a test drive of a 2016 Buick Regal AWD GS. The Regal GS is a combination of luxury, technology and performance. Complete with leather heated front seats, a powerful Bose audio system, heated steering wheel, sport designed gas/brake pedals and digital display makes the interior of this vehicle is stunning.
