Drop Aims To Make Your Kitchen Measurably Smarter

Confession: When Techcitement saw the Drop being demoed at a recent event, we almost walked right past it. A connected scale? Big deal.

HP Brings Quality To Budget Computing With The Stream Line

For the last few months, there’s been a rumor that HP was going to announce a laptop for under $200.

ScanSnap Serves Up Image Capture Options In Grande, Vente, And Trenta

Way back in 2011, Techcitement got to run the ScanSnap S1100 through the paces. We were impressed and it has come in handy for sudden scan needs. Except as you all know, tech doesn’t sit still.

It’s hard not to feel like we’re living in the age of the comic book geek. As someone who grew up reading them, it’s awesome to see the books everywhere. There are still some downsides for new fans though. Easily getting your hands on them is one, as are obnoxious “gatekeepers” who sneer at new […]

On The Cheap: $50 Off LG’s Smartwatch, The G Watch

As I mentioned in my thoughts on the Apple Watch yesterday, I’m not sure that I personally have a need for a smartwatch. I certainly can’t justify spending $350 on the stunning Apple Watch or $250 on the equally snazzy Moto 360. But what if there was a device with much of the same functionality, […]
