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 [...]

iPA2_WT_SM03_01__33164.1459348505.490.588

I love leather.  Whenever I am strolling and shopping as a tourist, I always stop in leather shops.  So when I had the chance to spend some time with a Burkley Leather case for my brand new iPad Pro 9.7, I quickly volunteered.  A week later, I "woke up" and discovered I really wanted only a one night stand [...]

loopycase1

Whenever I look like I need help carrying things, which is quite often apparently, I tend to hear, "Hey, let me help you with that!" My snarky response if I have the situation well under control is, "C'mon, I could do this with a baby on each hip, but thanks for asking."  Sometimes it turns [...]

Mujjo - 3

Ah, leather! Such a nice feel, and so easy on the eyes. I have always preferred it to the various synthetics. I especially like the finishes that are less polished and lend themselves to natural wear and "character building." Recently, Mujjo has expanded their line of cases to include Apple's newest iPhones, and they offered [...]

The popularity of virtual reality headsets is growing, while the physical size of these bulky accessories remains the same. However, that might be changing if this folding VR headset from Brando is any indication. This 3D headset is actually built into an iPhone case, so it's easy to use anytime you need a virtual reality [...]

CarvediPhone - 3

I've mentioned before that I love natural surfaces - wood, leather, and stone stir something calming and satisfying in my spirit. I have a beautiful teak dining table that I use as my desk. There's an old oak library table that used to be in my grandparents' study across the room where I have my [...]
