Elephant Steady

I find as I am getting a little older, my hands just aren't as steady as they use to be. Now for most things this is not an issue, but for shooting videos with my iPhone, this becomes a real problem. Elephant Steady, a Kickstarter project from ADPLUS Co., hopes to help the un-steady like [...]

nova-external-flash-2

iPhones have decent cameras, and you can snap even better photos with the built-in flash.  That flash does have its problems, though, because it's fired directly at the subject.  Photos can look harsh if you were too close to the subject, or they can be dark if you were too far away.  The Nova external [...]

iphone-magnifier

Okay, I recently reviewed my new Satechi ReadMate LED Desktop Magnifier, which I bought to help my aging eyes see small details, but I'm not ready to admit I need this magnifier.  The iPhone5-compliant Magnifier from THANKO, also called the Raku Raku Magnifier,  slides over your iPhone 5 to magnify the screen.  Although it specifies the iPhone [...]

ovision-housing-1

In this day and age, many young people have given up using a point and shoot camera and rely solely on their cell phone cameras for taking pictures.

Cellet1

During the 90's, when cell phones were becoming all the rage, the belt clip for phones became a status symbol of sorts. Since phones started out so large that they wouldn't fit in a pocket, clipping them to a belt (or hiding them in a fanny pack) was an acceptable way to transport them. Even [...]

supermanbutton

...that make all the difference. Even though I get the opportunity to try/review more than my fair share of very nice smartphone cases and accessories, I prefer to keep my iPhone as minimalistic as possible - using my iPhone 'naked'; embracing how Apple designed it to feel and operate while accepting/living with the risk of [...]
