It's hard to believe that it's been 9 years since Apple first introduced the world to the iPhone. I still remember the excitement I felt that day (6/29/2007) as I waited for my chance to stand in line (a small line) to purchase one of the most hyped phones of all time. You can read [...]

Pebblebee Stone review

Pebblebee-stone-1

I'm a huge fan of home automation. Several of the lights in my house are programmed to turn on when a person walks in the room, turn off when there is no longer motion, or turn off at a specific time. Although I love my setup, some of my lights can only be turned on [...]

stringify

Stringify is an IoT (Internet of Things) platform that makes your smart gadgets smarter by allowing users to create macros that they call "flows". Flows are commands that are strung together that control and react to their existing gadgets. It's like IFTTT, but more powerful and customizable because unlike IFTTT, Stringify can create multiple actions [...]

belkin-charge-dock-iphone-and-watch-8

Julie knows how much I love gadgets - and gadgets for my gadgets.  When Belkin offered The Gadgeteer their new Valet Charge Dock for Apple Watch + iPhone for review, Julie asked if I'd be interested in giving it a try.  I loved the idea of needing only one wall outlet to charge both my [...]

zNitro-logo-1

Recent results from the National Analysis Center, an independent test lab, demonstrated the superior capabilities of zNitro's Nitro Glass tempered glass screen protectors. The screen protector competed against a Zagg Invisible Shield Glass and a Tzumi 3587 Screen Protector. Each was subjected to endurance tests, including 10 drops of a steel ball from a distance of one meter. Nitro Glass was [...]

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 [...]

Our phones contain all of our important information from our calendars, to our contacts lists, messages, photos and more. There's no question that backing up that data is critical. That's why Android and iOS devices have built in features to back up to the cloud. One backup is great, but having a second backup is [...]

ElecloverWatchStand - 10

Face it, if you're using an Apple Watch, you're going to need to charge it on a regular basis. As in daily. And, like many other devices, most of us want to charge our watches where we want, not "have to" go to a certain location. To facilitate charging on the go, the folks at [...]

Gboard_1

Finally, an iOS keyboard that I've been wanting!  Gboard is Google's new app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you search web results, search emojis and GIFs without leaving the keyboard. It also brings glide typing (think, Swype) to iOS. I just downloaded it, and it's made me so happy. iPhone and iPad users, this might [...]

ourgroceries-1

I've been using Google Keep for the last year or so to keep track of my weekly grocery shopping list. This app was so much easier to use than my prior method of calling Jeanne to get the list before I'd go to the store each week. Writing items on paper is such a struggle [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

batteryshare

I can't make up my mind if this app is cool, creepy or somewhere in between. Battery Share is an iOS app that will let you follow the battery status of your friend's phone and will send a notification to your device when their battery is about to die. I'm not sure what the real [...]

In the early days of PDAs (personal digital assistants), I remember daydreaming about a computer the size of a Palm Pilot with a color touch screen display that would plug into a docking station with a larger display, keyboard and mouse when I was at work or at home. That way I would only have [...]
