HelloNomad02

There’s a certain balancing act we Gadgeteers play with our cables. You know you do it - you have a short one for when you're using a laptop or a battery charger on a table or desk, a longer one for when you’re in a “normal” room where you can sit near the outlet, and, [...]

cleanstylus

Using a stylus with your Android, iPad and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets is perfect for note taking and drawing. But the one feature lacking in 99% of tablets is that there's no place to store the stylus when you're not using it. So it ends up at the bottom of your bag or is easily lost. [...]

Not too long ago I was caught in a situation where I had to wait somewhere for several hours without access to a charger.  As I watched my iPhone drain down to nearly empty, I vowed to keep my eye open for one of those battery packs.  Today, I've got one to try out:  The EasyAcc [...]

ms-folding-keyboard

Who besides me remembers the Stowaway folding keyboard from ThinkOutside? Although it's been over 15 years ago since I reviewed it, I continue to think about how cool it was and still is after all these years. If there was a Bluetooth version of this Stowaway keyboard available today, I'd buy one. But there isn't, so [...]

I can only play so many rounds of Candy Crush before my brain feels like it is going to implode from boredom. Words with Friends is usually my go to game when I need a little break from work, but lately I've been trying to find another solo game that is easy to play, doesn't require [...]

Spring seems to be right around the corner (finally!) but I'm still wearing gloves on my drives to and from my day job each day. The best thing about gloves is that they keep my hands warm and dry. The worst thing about them is that they make interacting with my phone a big hassle. [...]

Now that Samsung, one of the world's most popular smartphone makers other than Apple, has decided to include Qi wireless charging capability in their new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones, I think this means we're finally going to see Qi charging take off in a big way. I was an early adopter of wireless [...]

Do you use your smartphone to stream music while you're driving? If you do, you have probably struggled to interact with the music application while operating your vehicle. Especially during the winter months when you're wearing gloves. The biggest issue is that you should not be focusing your attention to skipping music tracks or giving [...]

I truly believe charging your devices without having to plug them in is a great feature and the way of the future, that all cellphone/smart device manufactures should embrace. The TYLT VÜ wireless charger was one of my favorite review/tech products of 2014. It's build quality, upright orientation and triple coil design make it the hands [...]

When I upgraded my old fashioned "dumb" thermostat to a programmable / smartphone controllable thermostat a few years ago, it was a huge leap in convenience because I was able to program it to automatically turn the furnace down while I was at work during the day.

My family is actually an all-Apple household, but we have mophie juice pack cases for our iPhones, so we need both Lightning and microUSB cables for charging our various devices.  These F-Color cables would work great in my gear bag and even for my nightstand charger, because it combines both formats into one cable.  The [...]
