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 [...]

The iPad Pro has been off my radar, but I should probably be embarrassed to admit that I didn't even know that the iPad Pro had a special charging connector that doesn't require a cable. The Smart Connector is the closest Apple has come to wireless charging for a mobile device (I'm not counting the [...]

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 [...]

I normally use my new iPod Touch 6G just to have an iOS device to play around with and to test iOS accessories and associated apps for the Gadgeteer; thus, I do not keep a lot of files on my iPod. However, there are those in my family who do keep a lot of files [...]

I prefer earbuds to headphones because they are smaller and easier to carry around than a full-sized pair of earphones. While I like them better earphones, I know I'm not alone in having issues with earbuds falling out of my ears. If you're a fan of Apple's earpods which have come packaged with the iPhone, [...]

iPhones are renowned for offering plentiful applications, ease of use, and quality hardware. But whether you are a supporter or detractor of all things Apple there's one thing you have to admit: they charge way too much for memory. the 48 GB jump from 16 GB to 64 GB costs $100, or over $2 per GB; the next [...]

Although the battery life on phones has gotten better, there are times I still find the need to charge my iPhone on the fly. In general, I do not keep a charging case on my phone mainly because of the added weight and size. There is a company out there that not only makes a case [...]

2016 03 20 iPhone Leather Car Mount - 9

For a gadget geek, I'm surprised to say I've never used a car mount for my phone. Eighteen years in two Miatas, there has always been enough of a shelf space around the gear shift to set it down on. And holding the phone always seemed a good enough solution. But as a new reviewer, [...]

To case or not to case, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the dangers of outrageous clumsiness, or to cover the beauteous iPhone and by opposing the dangers end them. (Too much?) I really enjoy the beautiful design of iPhones, I hate to hide their elegance, and I’m careful [...]

I've been enjoying my Nexus 6P for a few months now, but I still miss the convenience of wireless charging. During the day it's no big deal to plug in a cable, but at night I just set the phone next to me on the night stand so that I can easy pick it up [...]

As phones are getting sleeker, slimmer, and wider, they are also becoming more difficult not to drop. Trying to operate your phone with one hand can be a perilous task that ends in disaster.  Previously, the solution was to outfit your phone with a protective case, adding bulk and hiding the manufacturer’s intended aesthetic. Enter [...]
