Portable music has been a hit, especially since Sony first developed their Walkman players and then Apple introduced their iPods. But usually these portable players require wired headphones for you to enjoy your music, or you had to plug them in to huge speakers to fill the room with music. Kitsound‘s Hive Wireless Speaker solves the problem by providing the best sounding wireless speakers in a portable size.

My EDC is actually pretty light compared to a few years back when I carried extra things like a laptop and loads of paperwork. I have 3 businesses in 3 different locations so it wasn’t ideal to always have to carry so many things around, even though the car would be the one carrying it. So a few years back, I decided to have my businesses go paperless, and that changed everything! Now I just use my iPad mini with LTE to VPN into the corporate servers to access everything, including security systems, audio/visual, security cameras, and all the files that I need. Read More →

I’m a heavy iPad user and always carry it around with me during meetings for when I need to pull up a document to show the employees. Most of the time I just prop up the iPad and point to a chart. The problem with that is that it leaves a whole bunch of ugly fingerprints, plus it doesn’t look as professional when using the finger to point at something. Ipevo’s Telescoping Stylus sounded like a great idea for me to use. Read More →
Many computer users these days have switched from using desktops to laptops. Laptops are smaller, portable and provide the same functionality as desktops, but the problem with most laptops is that they have a smaller than desirable screen size. I personally use both a 11″ MacBook Air and a 15″ Retina MacBook Pro. But both those laptops are connected to a larger 24″ LCD display while the laptop remains closed and laying flat on my desk taking up space. That’s where Just Mobile’s AluBase comes in. The AluBase is a vertical stand for the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

I was deciding between a plastic hard case, sleeve or some form of stick on protector. I’ve seen those Zagg booths at the malls that are right outside the Apple stores. So I decided to give Zagg a try with their invisibleSHIELD for the Retina Macbook Pro. Read More →
Everyone loves Apple’s Macbook Pro. It’s an awesome computer for artists and musicians to expand their creativity. But haven’t we always wished that Apple made a real OS X tablet? Modbook Inc. (formally Axiotron) did just that with their new line of 2012 Modbook Pro tablets. What Modbook Inc. does is take an actual 13.3″ Macbook Pro and modify it by removing the keyboard, giving it a new custom tablet case, adding a Wacom digitizer screen, and adding in a solid state hard drive. I think this new Modbook Pro will be a killer in the creative design community. Pricing isn’t announce yet, but I definitely will put in a pre-order when it comes out on October 3rd.
