nomadpod-1

About a year ago, Nomad, those folks who understand wandering Gadgeteers and their need for on-the-go charging, released a product called the Pod for Apple Watch. It's basically a battery that has an internal spool to hold a charging puck (not provided) in a compact, hockey-puck sized case. I was working at Apple at the [...]

I upgraded my first generation Apple Watch the night after updating all my iOS devices to iOS 10. (For those who have never done it, you have to have the watch charged to at least 50% and it has to be on the charger. Also, your phone has to be on wifi.) While the initial [...]

iphone7day-1

If you've read my recent gadget diary posts about pre-ordering the new iPhone 7 Plus, you'll know that I made a mistake doing that through Apple's site and will end up sending back the iPhone that's heading to my doorstep as I type this.  I've spent the last week trying to figure out a way [...]

The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are a formidable duo. The iPad Pro is fast, has a crisp, bright display, and the response of the Pencil on than display is something to behold. I don't use the pencil much, but I do like to have it with me. If you've not seen it, it is [...]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0heNVPPEy24 I just finished listening to this iOS 10 review from Jonathan Mann (Song a Day Man) and the guys at iMore, and now I want every review I do and read to be musical from now on. This review also makes me excited to try the iPhone 7 with iOS 10 when I hopefully [...]

ExoLens has recently announced professional grade camera accessories for the iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, and iPhone 7 (I'm not sure why there's no love for the iPhone 7 Plus, but here's hoping they will offer these new accessories for that model as well). The Wide-Angle kit comes with a ZEISS Mutar 0.6x Asph [...]

Last week I ordered a cute little Android pin from Dead Zebra. When it arrived, there were a couple of Android stickers also included in the package. I was so excited that I took a picture and shared it with Dave Rees (my Gadgeteer BFF). What he said next made me both laugh and think. [...]

Wallet phone cases have been around for a while. Not the slip-a-few-cards-in-the-back cases, but the fold-over, cover-the-screen type wallet cases. Most have an elastic band to hold them closed, but they are all fraught with difficulties, not the least of which is holding your entire wallet up to your ear during a phone call. Enter [...]

If you've ever tried to shoot iPhone videos at night then you've surely run into problems. The iPhone has a great camera, but it has a teeny tiny aperture which makes night shots problematic. You can overcome this limitation by shooting at a wide angle; iPhone also tries to compensate by adding gain, but mostly you end up [...]

Final Fantasy?

Final Fantasy - 1

I have this conversation from time to time with people when they see the name of my iPhone: "Final Fantasy?" "Yeah." "What's that mean?" "Well, when I got this phone, it completely checked off everything on my whiz-bang gadget list. I don't have anything else that I really want a phone to do." Sometimes I [...]

Terrapin iPhone case-01

I like simple phone cases.  Unfortunately, most cases kind of detract from the original, simple lines of the iPhone.  The Terrapin TPU cases are simple and effective.  Let's take a look. I was sent a white and a black sample. The cases are smooth and shiny on the outside, and unusually matte on the inside. [...]
