Season 4 was definitely the most fun we've had since Always On started one year ago. That being said, we're hitting the road in hopes of making next season give Season 4 a run for its money. In the meantime, here's our three favorite stories from the last couple months.
We couldn't help but notice Jeff's perma-smile and what seemed like an emotional journey back to his childhood when he visited NASA in Texas. Driving the SEV with an astronaut who's spent more than a month in space can have that effect on a … Read more
For this season's round of giveaways, we'll start it off with the Kindle Paperwhite. After being named "the classic beach device," this thing almost handled itself in the face of turmoil. While the sun, heat, and lava rock were mostly a breeze, the Kindle fell at the hands of the Pacific Ocean. If a lucky new owner can somehow get the thing working again, we'd love to see it live long enough to pump out one more good read.
Well, folks, this episode just about sums up Season 4. It's been another a great one, but don't worry, we're not planning on spending the summer lounging by the pool sipping fancy cocktails. It's too cold in San Francisco, anyway. We're already on the prowl, gearing up for Season 5. Plus, we've even got a couple special shows and an Always On giveaway coming in the next few weeks to keep you guys entertained.
The past three weeks of Always On showcased the roles tech can play in your summer vacation. In some cases, we determined whether or not your tech can survive your summer vacation.

But just because we're finally back home in the Bay Area doesn't mean we took a break from turning our environment into a tech battleground.
We start things off with an unboxing of the … Read more
It's safe to say that our expectations of the GoPro Mountain Games, and the entirety of Vail, Colorado, were greatly exceeded. If the gorgeous weather, cobblestone streets, and bouldering world championships weren't enough to generate permasmiles, the Rocky Mountains provide a perfect environment for the Always On crew to do their thing. In fact, many of us around the office have determined that the land-locked, rectangular-shaped state of Colorado wields enough awesomeness to give Hawaii a run for its money.
Summer's here, almost officially, which means the road trip season is upon us. We set out to try to find out which gadgets could entertain you on a long drive, or at least keep the kids out of your hair, and whether the phone that's arguably the hottest of the season could handle some road trip mishaps.
But here at Always On, we road trip in style. No cramped back seats for us ... we were rolling in The Woody, a massive high-tech RV that's the custom showcase creation of OCRV Paint and Service. Thanks for the ride, … Read more
