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. [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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.
