GripBase Podium review

on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Anyone who has used an iPad or other tablet while standing, walking around, or speaking to a group, without the ability to rest it on something solid, has known the pain that juggling these tools can bring. Since it is a two-handed device, holding with one and manipulating with the other means you’ve got toRead More…

Have you ever had a game board that was useless because you lost the playing pieces or the dice?  You can always buy new dice, but you can’t necessarily get new game pieces.  Why not just replace it with a suite of games for your tablet and a Bluetooth dice?  DICE+ is a universal boardRead More…

Hold your tablet with TwoHands II

on Monday, October 21st, 2013

Felix came onto the scene with the MonkeyOh tablet holder, which looked as if a monkey was holding your tablet for you.  It was cute and functional, but it didn’t really fold up nicely to take along in your gear bag.  The TwoHands  holders do; they look a little bit like a giant clothes pin.Read More…

Booq Viper Courier 13 review

on Friday, October 11th, 2013

Ah, gadget lovers and their gear. Hauling around our stuff used to be such a hassle.  Today, it’s all about carrying multiple screens rather than a single screen and power adapter. Most of us carry a smartphone, as well as a tablet or phablet, and maybe a laptop. To accommodate the changes wrought by theRead More…

The BakBone was developed by an MD, but you don’t have to be a doctor to use one

on Monday, June 10th, 2013

There are various attachments for the back of tablets designed to give you a better grip on those slippery little suckers.  They may work fine in most situations, but they aren’t always easily cleaned.  When you’re a doctor using a tablet for data records, viewing X-rays, and sharing information with patients, you need to haveRead More…

WHITE STONE The Stylus ARCPEN review

on Sunday, April 7th, 2013

Trying to choose your perfect stylus is a tough task due to the huge variety of capacitive styluses to choose from. There are tiny ones like the MicroStylus that stores in your device’s headphone jack to long ones like the Joy Factory Monet Stylus that looks more like a drumstick than a stylus. I think theRead More…
