panel-press

I know that it might look like a medieval torture device, but what you see here is the gTool: Panel Press. It's a specially designed tool created for the sole purpose of straightening out bent iPhones. No I'm not kidding. Shortly after the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus became available, we started hearing about [...]

I have a fascination with activity trackers. I'm definitely not an athlete, but I still enjoy tracking my steps and other fitness information as a way to monitor how active I am or usually how active I'm not. I've reviewed so many trackers that I've lost count and it seems that there's an announcement for [...]

Small RC cars are fun to play with as long as the battery doesn't drain. Having to recharge them every time you want a few minutes of play time can be a hassle. This tiny solar car never runs out of juice as long as the sun is shining. It's a 4-wheeled car that is [...]

If you own a smartphone or a tablet it's almost a sure thing that you have smudges and fingerprints on the touchscreen. Most of us rub the device on our pant leg or grab a tissue to polish off the nasty smears. If that way of dealing with this issue is just too mediocre for [...]

iphone6-qi

One of my must-have features whenever I'm shopping for a new phone is Qi wireless charging. This feature is becoming more common on Android smartphones, but Apple hasn't added it to their iPhones yet, even the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus do not have this handy feature. We've seen 3rd party covers [...]

dropcase

The Dropcam Pro is my all time favorite security camera. It's my favorite because it provides the best wide angle image I've found in a security camera, it's easy to setup and has a very good web viewer and mobile app for remote viewing. Of course no gadget is ever 100% perfect for everyone and the main [...]
