I got a new job!  Well, that's not the subject of the review, but because of the job, I've been overwhelmed by the number of business cards I receive.  They're all important, so I do want to file them, but the old way of manually keeping them in a business card folder seems so inefficient [...]

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have beautifully smooth touchscreens with curved edges that make it impossible to find a screen protector that can protect the entire glass surface.  Traditional screen protectors either stop short of the curved edge (bottom, left) or they end up with gaps at their edges (bottom, right) because [...]

dotpen-stylus-2

My love for styluses goes way back to the good old days of the Palm Pilot PDA. If you know what that is, you'll also remember the plastic "toothpick" stylus that started it all.

simple-snap-phone-screen-protector

I never have screen protectors on my devices.  I can never get a screen protector on without dust and air bubbles underneath or without misaligning it, and I simply cannot tolerate seeing those blemishes on the screen.  I also refuse to use any screen protector that requires use of a liquid for application.  I've already [...]

samsung-galaxy-note4-1

Last year at this time, I took a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and ended up feeling that the device was too large for me. Funny thing is that not long after that article was posted, I started using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as my primary device. After a short adjustment period I got used to [...]
