Caffeinated Pixels

Fueled by obscene amounts of coffee and a love for all things 8-bit and shiny, Pete wants to share his experiences with you. He'll try not to twitch and fidget too much, so as to not distract you from sharing his Apple vs. PC thoughts and comparisons, wistful yearning for a return to classic gaming, and focused spout-offs inspired by a life circling around computers, video games, and gadgets

Before you dismiss me as a slave to the marketing machine--I discovered a long time ago that when it comes to headphones, I'm definitely not the "audiophile" type.

First Step Into Fitness Gadgets: Review of the MOTOACTV GPS Android-Powered Smartwatch

NETGEAR's NTV200 Turns Your TV Into a Smart TV

I love streaming Internet content. In fact, I almost never watch broadcast TV or rent/buy physical movies--I purchase and watch everything online. Mostly with Netflix, but I use other services from time to time. I'm also a pretty active Pandora user.

The problem is, naturally, that many of us don't own TV's that have these features. Perhaps you're like me and do most of your watching on a widescreen monitor rather than a full-blown television.
