Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & 2 review

on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

When Apple released the iPad mini with Retina display, some people were disappointed because it was slightly thicker than the original.  That meant it was probable that many accessories for the original wouldn’t work with the newest model.  That’s not the case with the Minisuit Bluetooth QWERTY Keyboard Stand Case for iPad mini 1 & Read More…

Duchess Case iPad mini Case review

on Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Most cases for tech gear have a certain “look”.  Whether it’s made of fabric or leather, you can usually tell at a glance that the bag or case contains tech gear inside.  That’s fine, if you don’t mind having a bag that advertises “expensive gear in here!”  If you prefer to camouflage your gear a Read More…

Chisel out some space for an iPad mini or iPhone charging dock

on Friday, January 4th, 2013

These charging docks from iSkelter look like no others I’ve seen.  The Chisel docks for iPad mini, iPhone 4/4S, or iPhone 5 are made of bamboo.  Space for the device has been “chiseled” out of the block of wood, and a channel controls the charging cable to prevent tangles.  The stands can be used horizontally Read More…
