Telegram is available for every platform: iOS, Android, Windows Phone, PC, Mac, Linux, and a web version as well.

Earlier this year, Andy Chen and I told you about the Satechi Home Button and the Satechi Media Button. Andy wasn't too impressed with the Home button, but I'm still using the Media button in my MINI Cooper to control Pandora and Spotify on my drives to and from work.

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 [...]

Verizon offered to send me the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929), which is available exclusively from them. I [...]

nokia-2520-23

Years ago I was the ultimate Apple fan girl and wanted little to do with Android devices because they seemed clunky and lacked apps. Time went by, I dumped Apple, and have been firmly in the Android camp for a couple years. Now I find that Apple devices bore me to tears. I've tried a [...]

However, it didn't take too long for them to start appearing again, but they all had wide tips that made writing with them feel more like you [...]
