Gamevice-iPad-air

When the iPad first came out years ago, I thought to myself there's something that has some real potential to become a portable gaming device. Over the years the iPads have become more powerful and the games more complex. The one area that lacked for gaming on the iPad was a suitable gaming controller, one [...]

2 back burkley iPhoto 6 snapwallet back

I have just had the opportunity to review a second Burkley case. That's an unusually generous offer from the Burkley folks, and there is a paragraph later, for those who are interested, about why that should be. How do I like it? How does it fit the iPhone 6s? Let's see. A colleague of mine who [...]

Dedicated point and shoot cameras (and maybe even DSLR cameras) aren't nearly as popular as they were before smartphones came on the scene. Now we mainly use our phones to take pictures because they are always with us and are smaller and lighter. But with smartphone cameras come some drawbacks like the lack of a [...]

1 b box iCOBRA2 Lightning On-The-Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive5255

I learned in the Microsoft world that connections and drivers and CODECs were the worst part of this brave new world. Plug and Play was an improvement, but it always seemed like I couldn't upgrade my equipment until I'd forgotten about that tech and was now behind a different generation or two. Then I moved into [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
