skyview-travel-seatback-mount-2

I've seen tray-top stands to hold your mobile devices during flights, but they always seemed a little dangerous to me.  Because they weren't tied down in any way, it seemed that your mobile device could go flying in case of turbulence.  The cradle of the Skyview Seatback Mount for Mobile Devices holds mobile smart phones, tablets, [...]

vaja-cases-small-messenger-bag-ipad-mini-3

The iPad mini is small enough that I can take it anywhere I go.  My mini with Retina display fits inside some of my everyday carry bags, but not all of them.  When I'm carrying one of my smaller bags and want to take my mini along, I have to make a decision:  do I [...]

bionn-speakerpad-2

When you're watching videos, it's nice to have a stand to hold your tablet so you don't have to.  The BiONN SoundPad universal tablet stand has 2.5W stereo speakers embedded in the front legs for better sound than your tablet can produce on its own.  The stand works with iOS, Windows, and Android tablets; it [...]

I am a big iPad user. It is my main device for writing. So, when I updated to a new iPad Air, I found myself looking for new accessories to use with it. I was especially looking for a new mobile stand. In my search I happened across the Compass 2 from a company called [...]

Cyclone-Voyager-01

I'm a recent "convert" from iOS to Android.  After owning first-and second-generation iPads, along with the iPhone 3GS and 4S, I decided to move over to Android, since those devices had more interesting features and naturally integrated with all the Google apps that I used.  With more features coming out in Android OS updates, I've [...]

Minisuit_Bluboard_01

Several months ago, a friend of mine gave me a challenge.  It was to write a page a day, any format I wanted, as long as I was writing roughly 700 words daily.  While by no means did I ever consistently meet that goal, it did kickstart the writing bug in me again. I primarily [...]

Working where you want is very freeing - what true the promise of tablet computing.

The tablet stand is a totally new market, yet another that has sprung into being since the advent of the iPad and similar tablets in 2010. Two years ago, when you searched for iPad stand, or tablet stand, you got a few custom-built device holders, crafted in wood or acrylic, and most were more concerned [...]

I have a confession to make.  I'm obsessed with iPad bags.  Since I purchased my iPad 2, I've been looking for the perfect bag or bags to carry it.  Strotter is feeding my obsession with their Platforma bag for the iPad and other tablets.  You know what they say: "you can never be too rich [...]

Keizus Quadropod review

Keizus1

Holding onto our devices during use can be a hassle. Be it a smartphone, tablet, phablet, iPod touch, or anything else, if you want to prop it up to use it to take a photo, watch a video, or have a video chat, an adjustable stand is something that's going to come in  handy. Several [...]

GripBase Podium review

GripBase6

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 to [...]

dice+-tablet-game-and-controller-a

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 board [...]

felix-two-hands-tablet-stand

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. [...]

I opened my mailbox the other day to find the Sensu Solo paintbrush stylus waiting for me. Sensu isn't new to the stylus scene, they have been offering what I consider the most realistic feeling paintbrush stylus for over a year. See my review of the Sensu Artist Brush in the related links below. The [...]

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 the [...]

victorinox-knife-block-tablet-stand

There are a lot of cooking apps and videos available for tablets.  You can watch videos as you cook to learn new techniques or follow a recipe in your virtual recipe box, but whatever you're doing on a tablet in the kitchen, you'll need a stand to keep it safe and viewable.  There are countless [...]

minisuit-nexuskeyboard-4

During my vacation planning this year, I decided that I was going to leave my 13in Macbook Air laptop at home and only take my Nexus 7 2013 Android tablet. I figured it was a good way to keep me from wanting to do real work while I was supposed to be relaxing on Sanibel [...]
