By Steve Woodfield The Apple iPad has plenty of strengths, but its on-screen keyboard isn't exactly one of them. It's a problem with tablets in general, especially if you're more interested in getting actual work done than sending birds flying through space. For productivity, an external keyboard for your tablet is a must-have. You could opt for a standard add-on Bluetooth keyboard, like Apple's own $79 Wireless Keyboard, or, even better, get a combination case/stand/keyboard to protect your tablet in transport, and prop…

By Steve Woodfield Google Glass and Apple's rumored iWatch are destined to make wearable gadgets all the rage, but for runners, hikers, gym bunnies and weight watchers it's a revolution already in full swing. It's a sea-change hung on the power and low price of sensors and Wi-Fi modules, whose presence in everything from watches and wristbands to scales and smartphones is fast making the act of going for a run something that demands more than will power alone. Fitness apparel comes in many…

By Steve Woodfield The web (and ReShip.com) have made it a lot easier for small businesses to reach bigger potential audiences across the world — just look at the world of small-batch artisan coffee. While Starbucks might seem like they have a store on every block, people who want something different definitely have options.

By Steve Woodfield In our fourth and final installment in the best winter gear of 2013, we're looking at probably your most important piece of equipment - a good multi-use jacket. From wool-insulated workout wear to the hardest hard shell we’ve ever seen, this year’s backcountry jackets are an eclectic crop. Material upgrades and smart design leaps have made outerwear a locus of innovation. (Molecular-level polymer coating, anyone?) But enough lab-speak. In a storm, a shell is your second skin and your…

For steep, icy, or rocky terrain, go aggressive with as many underfoot claws in as many locations as you can get, as well as a heel lifter to save your calves on steep climbs. If flat or gently rolling terrain is more your style, lower-profile teeth are all you need—huge claws underfoot…
