Tablets, Ultra Portables

logitech-samsung

I love the Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 tablet that I bought earlier this year. I even took it with me on our last vacation to use instead of my Macbook Air. It worked pretty well except when I needed to type in a lot of text. For those times, I prefer an actual keyboard. [...]

ameribag-hbbevo-bag-1

I work from home, so I don't use a laptop bag or large gear bag every day.  However, I do like to take my iPad with me when I go to an appointment, and sometimes I may even want to take my 11" MacBook Air.  I don't want to have to change bags every time [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

The photo of the cased iPhone 6 in space isn't an artist's rendering; it was taken by the camera sent up on the weather balloon with this phone.  Urban Armor Gear tested their iPhone 6 case by sending it up to the stratosphere and dropping it from 101,000+ feet.  During the trip up and down, [...]

dotpen-stylus-2

My love for styluses goes way back to the good old days of the Palm Pilot PDA. If you know what that is, you'll also remember the plastic "toothpick" stylus that started it all. When the iPhone and iPad came on the scene the stylus disappeared for awhile because touch screens changed from resistive to capacitive [...]

aarp-realpad-android-tablet

This new RealPad from AARP probably isn't a lot different from many other 7.9" Android tablets on the market, but it has one advantage over them.  The fact that AARP is endorsing them and has some of their services set up as apps on the tablet may be enough to give tech-fearful people the confidence to think [...]

ematic-tablet-1

I've been an Apple product user since 1987, and wear that badge with honor. So I've never really used Android more than just flicking around on demo models in stores or using a friend’s device. That's why, when Julie offered this unit to the team, I thought I'd take it for a test spin. What [...]

If you own a smartphone or a tablet it's almost a sure thing that you have smudges and fingerprints on the touchscreen. Most of us rub the device on our pant leg or grab a tissue to polish off the nasty smears. If that way of dealing with this issue is just too mediocre for [...]

desktop-chair-v2-for-tablets-2

Although BiteMyApple populates their store with successfully-funded, commercially-available crowd-funding projects for Apple products, the Desktop Chair v2 will actually work with most any tablet.  The Chair is made of "premium wood sheets that are cross-grained (layered perpendicularly) and hydraulic-hot-pressed to achieve maximum dimensional durability and precision."  It's bent and folded, and each end has a [...]

venos-sidecar

Small laptops are great when you need something that is ultra portable, but the trade off is that they usually have smaller displays which ends up making you feel cramped and squinty. The Venostech SideCar is an interesting solution that doesn't require any power and uses devices you already own to add additional screen space [...]

cargoworks-macbookair+ipadsleeve

I like things that are simple and rugged. Add a few strips of MOLLE webbing and all the better. The Cargo Works MacBook Air + iPad Sleeves fits these criteria. As the name cleverly implies, it holds a MacBook Air in a neoprene zipper pocket as well as an iPad in a front flap pocket [...]
