Spigen's Air Skin cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are only 0.4mm thick and weigh only 4 grams and 6 grams, respectively.  That's hardly bulkier than a sticker skin, but the Air Skin cases are made using a new technology which compresses polycarbonate "to a stable form that can protect a device [...]

It's autumn, and that means cooler weather, kids are in school, and college football is in season.  Do you know what the above collegiate teams all have in common?  The University of Georgia, Ohio State University, University of Texas, Arizona State University, University of Michigan, University [...]

thinkgeek-planet-plates

ThinkGeek has a set of plates designed by Leah Yael Levy that feature a planet from our solar system on each plate.  The Planetary Plates are 10" in diameter.  They are made of melamine, so they aren't microwave safe.  (There's a bit of confusion as to whether they are dishwasher safe.)  You get a set of [...]

blue-ant-pump-hd-sportsbuds-4

When my daughter first envisioned herself at college this year, she saw herself zipping around campus on her bike, listening to music as she rides to class with a cool wind in her hair.  She found out that it was hot and humid with no cool winds, the path was uphill on her way to all her [...]

iphone-6-plus-review-1

Although I stayed up until 3:00am ET to pre-order my iPhone 6 Plus from Verizon and got my order in within 8 minutes, I still was horrified to see that I could expect my new phone on October 14 instead of September 19!  I got lucky and received my 6 Plus earlier than expected, and [...]

keyport-slide-new-designs

Keyport recently announced the addition of new carbon fiber designs at their customers' requests.  They have two different hydro-dipped twill weave carbon fiber patterns in silver (left) and gold (middle).  While checking out their new designs, I found they also have a new pattern called Zombie.  I like to think this one celebrates the return of The Walking Dead [...]

vornado-vfan

Vornado fans have been around since 1945, and while the style looks very much the same today, the materials used in the fans have changed over the years.  Vornado fans use their signature "Vortex Technology to provide complete circulation of all the air throughout a room.  Twin air cones and a deep-pitched propeller compress and move [...]

drink-ink-glass-identifiers

I've seen various "charms" that help you keep up with which glass belongs to whom at parties, but most of them only work with stemmed glasses.  What if you aren't having wine?  How do you identify your soda glass or beer stein or your coffee cup?  It won't be a problem with the Drink Ink [...]

verus-slide-case-iphone-6-6-plus

If you need to carry just an ID card and one other card with your phone, you don't need a huge wallet case.  These Verus Damda Slide cases for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have a panel that slides open on the back to expose a compartment with just enough room for two cards. [...]

LoFree-EDGE-bluetooth-speaker-6

Over the years, I've had the chance to review several small, wooden speakers from Pyramid Distribution.  You'll find links to those reviews at the end of this review.  I had assumed those cute little speakers, shaped like acorns or Scottie dogs, would be more fun than functional, but I was proven wrong by every one [...]

The Mac Pro is sleek and beautiful, and it looks great on your desk.  (Click the image for a better view.)  All the peripherals you attach to it may not look so beautiful cluttered around your desk top, though.  Hive73 created a beautiful, compact aluminum deck that neatly arranges those devices to keep your work [...]

A couple of years back, Julie reviewed Waterfield's Finn wallet and found it to be as great as the Waterfield Catch Wallet that she has used for years.  The Finn  wallets have a zipper that opens up the top and one side for easy access to the cards and cash stored in the two pockets [...]
