satechi bluetooth home button-03

Recently, Julie and I reviewed the iBolt Command Remote, a Bluetooth button that you can control various aspects of your smartphone.  It was okay, but had some shortcomings especially for the iOS version.  Today, I've got the Satechi Bluetooth Button Series (Home Button) to review. In the box, you get the remote, an adhesive pad, instructions, [...]

HelloNomad02

There’s a certain balancing act we Gadgeteers play with our cables. You know you do it - you have a short one for when you're using a laptop or a battery charger on a table or desk, a longer one for when you’re in a “normal” room where you can sit near the outlet, and, [...]

calypsopad-for-iphone-6-2

If you use your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus without a case, you are certainly aware that the back camera doesn't fit flush with the back of the phone.  When you try to interact with the phone as it lays on a hard, flat surface, the phone will jiggle and rock as you touch it. [...]

cleanstylus

Using a stylus with your Android, iPad and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets is perfect for note taking and drawing. But the one feature lacking in 99% of tablets is that there's no place to store the stylus when you're not using it. So it ends up at the bottom of your bag or is easily lost. [...]

easyacc-pb6400CS-01

Not too long ago I was caught in a situation where I had to wait somewhere for several hours without access to a charger.  As I watched my iPhone drain down to nearly empty, I vowed to keep my eye open for one of those battery packs.  Today, I've got one to try out:  The EasyAcc [...]

ms-folding-keyboard

Who besides me remembers the Stowaway folding keyboard from ThinkOutside? Although it's been over 15 years ago since I reviewed it, I continue to think about how cool it was and still is after all these years. If there was a Bluetooth version of this Stowaway keyboard available today, I'd buy one. But there isn't, so [...]

phorm-case-ipad-mini-2

Typing on a touchscreen is more difficult that typing on normal keyboards because the smooth, flat screen offers you no physical clues to let you know if you've even touched a key as you type.  The Phorm case changes that by overlaying physical clues on the touchscreen when you need it.  Slide a switch on the [...]

Spring seems to be right around the corner (finally!) but I'm still wearing gloves on my drives to and from my day job each day. The best thing about gloves is that they keep my hands warm and dry. The worst thing about them is that they make interacting with my phone a big hassle. [...]

mophie-juice-pack-iphone-6-plus-9

I had a mophie juice pack air (I hate when products and companies use lower-case names, but that's how they spell it) for my iPhone 5.  I loved having it on my phone, because I didn't have to worry about running out of power unexpectedly.  My daughter and husband had cases for their iPhones, too.

satechi-media-button-4

Do you use your smartphone to stream music while you're driving? If you do, you have probably struggled to interact with the music application while operating your vehicle. Especially during the winter months when you're wearing gloves. The biggest issue is that you should not be focusing your attention to skipping music tracks or giving [...]

allure-energy

When I upgraded my old fashioned "dumb" thermostat to a programmable / smartphone controllable thermostat a few years ago, it was a huge leap in convenience because I was able to program it to automatically turn the furnace down while I was at work during the day. It would then automatically turn the heat up [...]

f-color-2-in-1-cable

My family is actually an all-Apple household, but we have mophie juice pack cases for our iPhones, so we need both Lightning and microUSB cables for charging our various devices.  These F-Color cables would work great in my gear bag and even for my nightstand charger, because it combines both formats into one cable.  The [...]

stm-flip-iphone-6-plus-1

When we introduced you to the STM Flip for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, we mentioned that it was like a Smart Case for your iPhone.  Of course, it can't sleep/wake your iPhone, because they don't have those functions, but it will provide extra protection for your phone's screen while it's in your pocket [...]
