The perfect iPad accessory for the geek in your life this holiday season…

on Saturday, December 7th, 2013

I think the Smart Covers Apple sells simply do not do their iPads justice. To create such a great tech-sexy piece of hardware only to cover/protect its screen with plastic is just tragic… and to charge $40 for it to boot. Well, as the story goes, I was dancing the Net looking for a worthyRead More…

Smart Cargo for iPad review

on Monday, July 29th, 2013

I have completely replaced a laptop in my life with my iPad. I discovered this about a year into having my first iPad, when I realized the only time I had moved my MacBook Pro from the desk was when I presented, using both it and my iPad at a few meetings. But, when I’mRead More…

Apple iPad mini review

on Friday, November 9th, 2012

Despite what Steve Jobs so vehemently declared, Apple has just released a smaller version of the iPad.  Well, I guess technically Steve said Apple would never release a 7″ tablet, and the iPad mini is a 7.9″ tablet, so Apple didn’t quite make a liar out of him.  I already had the “new iPad”, andRead More…

Acer Foldable Case Stand for Iconia A500/101 Review

on Thursday, August 16th, 2012

I was walking through  an electronics store the other day when I just happened to see the above case in a markdown bin.  It’s an Acer foldable case stand for their Acer A500/101 (Barcode: 4717276489618). Now the Acer Iconias just happens to be about the same size as my Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, so I triedRead More…

Give your iPhone 4S a stainless steel backing with Luxe Plates

on Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Have an iPhone 4S (or iPhone 4) and want to protect that delicate back glass when you lay it on the table?  Many people usually use a variation of Zagg’s InvisibleShield or Skin for their iPhone.  But I would also like something more durable and luxury looking.  That’s where Luxe Plates come in.  Luxe PlatesRead More…

Saddleback Leather Moleskine Cover Review

I’ve recently began keeping a journal after a long hiatus. Writing again has prompted me to become a little bit obsessed with notebooks, pens, drawing pencils and other accessories. I recently reviewed the Quiver Moleskine Pen holder and today I want to show you a really nice leather Moleskine cover from Saddleback Leather Company.

Periscope Lighted Folio Kindle Cover Review

on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009
Posted in: eBook Readers, Reviews

I really enjoy my Kindle, but always grumble when I’m unable to see the display in dimly lit environments. It’s a problem that keeps me reading on my iPhone more often than the Kindle, because the iPhone has a backlight. When the folks at Periscope asked if I would like to review their Lighted FolioRead More…

Sony Reader Cover with Light for the PRS-600 Touch Reader Review

on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009
Posted in: eBook Readers

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the new Sony PRS-600 Touch ebook reader.  The reader did not come with the book-style cover that I prefer.  I found the 600 would fit into the Sony lightwedge cover I had been using, but the lightwedge itself didn’t line up properly with the screen on the 600, andRead More…

M-edge Kindle Covers Review

Posted in: eBook Readers

If you recently purchased the Kindle 2 e-book reader, you might have been surprised to find out that Amazon failed to include any type of protective case. If you remember, the original Kindle included a cover. A lame one, but it was better than  nothing. Luckily, it didn’t take long at all for cases andRead More…

Spotlight Gadget – Touchlite iPod Touch Covers

on Saturday, March 21st, 2009
Posted in: iPhone, iPad, iPod

These shiny hard covers from More Thing for the iPod Touch caught my eye while surfing for news this morning. They look pretty snazzy don’t they? I thought they were made of metal, but they are actually plastic with a metallic finish. This company carries covers for the iPhone 3G, original iPhone and nano too.
