iblade-smartcase

Modularity appears to be the latest trend in new smartphones. The LG G5 did it earlier this year with its unique slide in camera, battery and DAC. Now more recently, Motorola is taking a run at modularity by adding that feature to their new Moto Z phones with replaceable back covers, speaker, and a projector. [...]

vrsdesign-note7

Samsung officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on Tuesday 8/2/16 and although you can't walk into a store and buy Samsungs flagship smartphone just yet, you can buy a case to protect it. I'd not heard of VRS Design until they contacted me to ask if I wanted to review their Samsung Galaxy Note [...]

Goatcase-1

Selfie takers take notice, GOATcase has developed an anti-gravity case that will stick to any smooth surface. To accomplish this it uses "nano suction technology" which is really just a fancy term for many tiny suction cups. GOATcase claims that the case will adhere to smooth surfaces like wood, a whiteboard, metal, mirrors, and a computer screen. They [...]

2 back burkley iPhoto 6 snapwallet back

I have just had the opportunity to review a second Burkley case. That's an unusually generous offer from the Burkley folks, and there is a paragraph later, for those who are interested, about why that should be. How do I like it? How does it fit the iPhone 6s? Let's see. A colleague of mine who [...]

toast_leather_nexus6p-1

Earlier this year I reviewed the Toast wood skin for the Nexus 6p. Its unique material and precision design, while adding little to no bulk was just the minimalistic protection I wanted for my Nexus 6p. Add in the fact, it adhered directly to my device greatly reducing the chance of grit and grime building up [...]

CaseMade - 1

The iPad Pro (12.9") is a bold move for Apple. Being a huge, thin slab of glass, and being a bit heavier than previous versions of the popular tablet means that damage from that ever-present enemy of all things technical - gravity - is a potential issue that needs to be taken into consideration. CaseMade [...]

TashtegoRollup - 3

Packing for travel is a pain sometimes. You need clothes, various charging cables, and, of course, your toiletries. I generally pack fewer items in this category than my Lovely Bride, since I'm willing to wash my hair with whatever soap is available and use one lotion for skin, hair, and face. (Coconut oil is wonderful!) [...]

sena-watch-stand-1

The Apple Watch Sport doesn't come with a charging case or dock, just a charging cable.  You'll either have to charge your Watch as it lays on a table, putting it at risk of not being seen when you drop something else on the table, or you'll have to purchase a third-party charging stand of [...]

tmbr-iphonecase

I'm happy with Android and haven't used an iPhone as my main phone for years. But dang it if these new leather and wood iPhone cases from tmbr. don't make me seriously think about switching back. These cases combine two of my favorite natural materials: wood and leather. They are available for the iPhone 6 [...]

toast_nexus6p-1

I often waffle between wanting to use my device naked (aka no case) and using a big, bulky case to protect my coveted smartphone. Typically what I do falls between the two extremes with some sort of slim case that provides a moderate degree of protection without giving up too much of the devices sleek [...]

corners4

I prefer Android OS to iOS, but I often flirt with the idea of going back to using an iPhone as my primary phone because iPhones get all the cool add-on accessories like the DxO camera and these cool corner bumper protectors from Corners4. Made in the USA from machined and cast aluminum, these bumpers [...]
