iPad

oberondesign-ipadminisleeve_1

I typically carry my gear around with me in the Colonel Littleton No. 1943 Navigator bag I reviewed last year. But there are those occasions where I want my iPad mini with me either totally by itself or in something like my gi/sports bag. In both situations, I do not want my tablet rattling around [...]

In one package, you get a "smart cover" that also can contort into a stand in either portrait or landscape orientations, a heavy-duty, rubberized case, and a decent but [...]

gramaphone

The Gramophone combines sculpture with sound to create a unique speaker system for the iPhone or iPad that will definitely turn heads (and ears). Designed to resemble a Victorian era phonograph, the base of the Gramophone is constructed of solid walnut and the horn is made of iron and brass. The interesting thing about this [...]

If Tim Cook would ask me what changes I would make to the iPhone, it wouldn't take me long to blurt out my top 5 list. Better battery life, widgets, dedicated call answer/end button, dedicated camera shutter button and a notification LED. I don't think Tim cares what I think or want, but I'll soon [...]

cruxskunk

The folks at Crux have been busy working on the ultimate iPad keyboard case and are looking for backing from Kickstarter fans for their new CruxSKUNK. Yeah, that name is ummm... strange. But forget the name and check out the keyboard. First of all, it's Bluetooth, it has full size keys and a standard layout with [...]

With less than 2 weeks to go on his Kickstarter project, entrepreneur Dotan Saguy, the man behind the Smarter Stand iPad Stand Kit for the Smart Cover and Smart Case, has no worries that he will reach his funding goal of $10,000. That's because at the time of this writing, the earnings are already beyond that [...]

touchfire-11

Over the years I have reviewed quite a few keyboards for mobile devices. My all time favorite is still ThinkOutside's Stowaway keyboard which I reviewed over 12 years ago. I would pay good money for an iPad compatible Bluetooth version of their original model right now. But since I don't have that luxury, I keep looking [...]

Gadgeteer reader Tony N sent me an email asking me to take a look at a Kickstarter project that he thought I'd find interesting. It's for a very unique stylus that actually rolls up when you want to use it and then unrolls into a flat sheet that sticks to the outside of the iPad's [...]

Gear_AirZone_Series_1_1

Of all the speakers I have heard based on Apple's Airplay technology, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air sounds the best. It has a presence and detail unmatched in other speakers. That said, it costs a whopping $600, making it unrealistic for the vast majority of people who want to experience the convenience of using [...]

Today, we're doing Point-Counterpoint with Apple Smart Case reviews.  Douglas Forrester liked his case, and I didn't like mine.  Julie thought people might be interested in a different take on the Smart Case. I love Apple's Smart Cover, and I've used them on both my iPad 2 and my new iPad.  I love the protection [...]

roam

There's no doubt that gaming on the iPad and Android tablets is extremely popular. But if you're like me, you really miss the feel and control that an analog joystick provides. I've tried a couple stick-on joysticks like the Fling and Joystick-it (see links below), but they always leave me wanting more. The Roam MobileOS Game [...]

doodly-sketchbookink

I've been trying two new art apps on my iPad this week. One is Doodle.ly and the other is SketchBook Ink. One is like Twitter for doodlers and the other is a spinoff app from Autodesk's popular SketchBook Pro app. This isn't really a review, but more of a quick look at both apps. Doodle.ly (available [...]

futulele600

I've tried all kinds of iPad apps that can turn the tablet into a musical instrument. There are piano apps, drum apps, guitar apps, etc. They are all fun to play with, but this is the first time I've actually been thoroughly impressed with one. Ian told us about the Futulele app a few months ago, but [...]
