I have found that starting a business is mostly just day-to-day progress; it’s a whole lot of little steps. Sometimes it is difficult to remember how much progress you’ve made because each day is only infinitesimally further along than the day before. But every once in a while a series of events converge that provides … Read More

They were planning a road trip across much of North America and they wondered if they might … Read More
A question I often get asked is about the wind noise generated by the RazerLift. We have some initial feedback on that very question, particularly by two recent incidents.
