Matthew is a professional naval architect by day and a mobile gadgeteer at all other times. He purchases his own devices and then sells them on eBay or Swappa to buy more. Many other devices are sent for review on a 30-day loaner basis and then returned to the carrier or manufacturer. If any are provided as “long term loaner units” this will be clearly disclosed in his reviews.

One of the most popular things to do while running or working out is listen to your music collection. With the Tiger Eyes or Endorphin earphones you can do that and sweat as much as you want since they both have lifetime warranties on sweat. The Tiger Eyes are optimized for the iPhone and let you handle calls and listen to music. The Endorphin is designed for the serious athlete who wants some rocking headphones.

There are lots of games available for the Apple iPhone and the prices are more competitive than what you will find for the DS and PSP mobile gaming devices. One of the recent games launched and then updated for the iPhone is Cronk. Cronk is a caveman trying to save his village by throwing and matching up three boulders in a row. I have played a comparable game on my T-Mobile G1 (Bonsai Blast) and Windows Mobile devices (Astraware Zuma) and think Cronk is an enjoyable game.
