Terrapin iPhone case-01

I like simple phone cases.  Unfortunately, most cases kind of detract from the original, simple lines of the iPhone.  The Terrapin TPU cases are simple and effective.  Let's take a look. I was sent a white and a black sample. The cases are smooth and shiny on the outside, and unusually matte on the inside. [...]

Skoog-2

As some of you may know, I love to tinker around with making music on my iPad. I have bought, traded and reviewed a number of products that allow me to interface with programs like Garage Band on my iPad to create and record music. I have had various amounts of success with these products, [...]

siri

So, you've asked your iDevice's voice assistant to do something for you and it did something completely different. Who's to blame - you or Siri? Like most relationships, it may have a lot to do with how you phrase your questions. A new site - hey-siri.io - tries to cover the ever-growing lexicon of Siri commands. [...]

Goatcase-1

Selfie takers take notice, GOATcase has developed an anti-gravity case that will stick to any smooth surface. To accomplish this it uses "nano suction technology" which is really just a fancy term for many tiny suction cups. GOATcase claims that the case will adhere to smooth surfaces like wood, a whiteboard, metal, mirrors, and a computer screen. They [...]

Now we are on the cusp of a new revolution in video - 360° immersive virtual reality - and Insta360's Nano camera offers a convenient, innovative, [...]

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 [...]
