Obsessive Research for Better Living
I don’t buy a lot of stuff.
But when I do, I tend to research before I buy pretty carefully. Almost obsessively. I dive into the best publications for consumer research from various countries. I read blogs and specialist publications if relevant ones exist. On rare occasions, I trust my friends, including especially the consumer products engineer with whom I founded this site.
After a few days or even weeks of research, I may just go and write an article about what I’ve found out and throw it up on this site. I also publish some comparison articles on specific gear at times. Unlike most tech gear, affiliate, and review sites, I link to the best-informed product testing and consumer organizations and reviewers from around the world so that you can check out what others have to say too. And of course I give my own experiences — but I do often favor overall meta-reviews of expert opinions.
We cover whatever the hell interests us at the moment. Especially if I’m looking to buy something, like a loud Bluetooth speaker or a weeder that my mom can use without injuring her back in the garden. Separately I run a minimalist travel site on portable stuff and travel hacks for nomads.
Mainly I write these screeds, but sometimes a few select others weigh in. You can chime in too if you want. We read the comments and update articles when people tell us something useful. We love it when you send in your feedback, suggestions, and steamy proposals too.
