Years ago, when the iPad first was released, I reviewed the Incase Travel Kit Plus for iPad and found it was perfect for carrying the iPad, Apple Bluetooth keyboard, cables and chargers, and the included stand.  Well, perfect if it only had a shoulder strap, in my opinion.  Incase has updated the iPad travel kit [...]

One of my must-have features whenever I'm shopping for a new phone is Qi wireless charging. This feature is becoming more common on Android smartphones, but Apple hasn't added it to their iPhones yet, even the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus do not have this handy feature.
