ClipSee - 01 (682x1024)

On July 1, 2015, New Hampshire became the fifteenth state to adopt a hands-free law that prohibits the use of hand-held electronic devices unless they are supported by a Bluetooth or other hands-free technology. Now, it’s hard to buy a car today without Bluetooth support, but what if you have an older car? Sure, waiting [...]

OptechSmartSling - 2

Back when our belts were bristling like Batman's utility belt and fanny packs were seen constantly, I read a humorous piece about how we male geeks carry our gear. The author was proposing that we have to have a popular, masculine person start using something before it becomes socially acceptable. No one really carried a [...]

iCleverAppleWatchStand - 13

The Apple Watch, like most of the company's earlier products, has begun to spawn a cottage industry of paraphernalia: mostly stands, cases, and  watch bands. Since the size of the charger is the same for both the 42 mm and 38 mm models, and only slightly thicker for the plastic charger versus the stainless steel [...]

polaroid-zip-8

I take more pictures with my smartphone than I make calls with it. I rarely take a stand alone camera with me on vacations, parties or family events. The majority of the pictures I take stay on my phone and don't get shared with friends or family. Sure, I can go home and print the [...]

mobile-payments

Yesterday's Samsung Unpacked event left me feeling disappointed about their new hardware announcements. However, their Samsung Pay announcement caught my attention. If you aren't familiar with Samsung Pay, it's Samsung's mobile payment application. Like Apple Pay, Google Wallet, Android Pay (not available yet) and CurrentC (also not available yet), it's a way to use your phone to pay [...]

Fenix FlipWrite-1

Can you believe that it has been 5 years since the first iPad was released to the public? I myself have been using one for several years now and would be lost without it. When I bought my iPad I did so with the intention of replacing a laptop for work, and while earlier versions [...]

wingo

I enjoy reading eBooks with my tablet, but after an hour or two, my hand will cramp from holding it. The Wingo case solves that problem for iPad mini owners by adding fold-out wings to the back of their case. The snap-on case is compatible with all of the current iPad mini models and snaps [...]

Notion sensor

As technology gets smarter and smarter so do our home security systems. One example of this that I have recently come across is the Notion system, formerly a successful Kickstarter project. Like most home security systems, Notion relies on sensors, but unlike most security systems, the Notion's single sensor is built to do the job [...]

rhinoshield-1

I love the ability to customize my iPhone with different phone cases. Normally, I stick to full body cases, since they provide the most protection and (usually) style. The drawback? You spend however much on your thin gold (or other colored) iPhone only to smother it in a bulky case to have enough protection. The [...]

Last December, I reviewed the i-FlashDrive external storage for iOS device from Brando.  It was basically a flash drive that plugged into an iOS device with a Lightning connector to serve as a backup and/or external storage device, and it could work with a computer as a flash drive.  It was a convenient way to [...]
