Yesterday I posted an article titled: 5 reasons why I think Apple devices are better than Android devices. Today I'm going to take the opposite view and argue with myself by listing the top 5 reasons why I think Android devices are better than Apple devices. Since I'm a bigger Android fan than Apple fan at the [...]

I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of the whole selfie craze. No one wants to see image after image of your goofy looking duck face. But if you absolutely must use your phone to take pictures or videos of yourself, having a remote shutter button is a handy gadget for the selfie [...]

When it comes to mobile devices, fans can be very vocal when talking about their favorite. If you dare put down their chosen platform, some people will take it as a personal insult worthy of verbal fisticuffs. I've often wondered why we can be so sensitive about our choices when it comes to smartphones and tablets. To add [...]

lumee-lighted-cell-phone-case

It's a shame you have to use the front-facing camera on your phone for selfies, because that camera doesn't have a flash.  When you aren't in well-lighted places, your selfies will be lacking in detail because of the poor lighting.  The LuMee Light Up Cell Phone Case with built-in lights that shine on your face [...]

With the average smartphone lifespan of two years, there's a good possibility you have an old iPhone or two shoved in a drawer or a box in the closet.  Consider pulling them out and recycling them into a very snazzy retro-style clock.  Cdock will turn your iPhone 4 or 4S into a sleek tabletop clock [...]

Do you use your tablet at work, carrying it from meeting to meeting or between worksites?  You can carry everything in a large gear bag, but that's probably overkill if you're just walking down the hall to a conference room.  Or if you're flying, you need a compact bag that can fit all your electronic gear, [...]

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.

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. [...]

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 [...]
