apple-iphone7-3

I decided not to write a traditional smartphone review because you can read any one of the eleventy billion iPhone 7 reviews on the internet right now. I thought it would be more interesting to write about my experiences using the iPhone 7 and trying to adjust to iOS after using Android for the last several years. [...]

Julie and I have been discussing what new smartphones are on the horizon for years now. Always hopeful of the next one peaking our Gadgeteer interest enough to pull the trigger. Most recently we focused on the iPhone 7/7+, both of us drinking the Kool-Aid Tim Cook was pouring during the announcement event. I, like [...]

DistilUnionWally - 1

The iPhone 6/6s Plus, the largest of Apple's iconic smartphone, has gotten a bit of a raw deal in the case market. Time and again, Julie has sent out review product notices, and they will be for every iPhone on the market - except the iPhone 6/6s Plus. Well, the artisans at Distil Union have [...]

Terrapin iPhone case-01

I like simple phone cases.  Unfortunately, most cases kind of detract from the original, simple lines of the iPhone.  The Terrapin TPU cases are simple and effective.  Let's take a look. I was sent a white and a black sample. The cases are smooth and shiny on the outside, and unusually matte on the inside. [...]

Goatcase-1

Selfie takers take notice, GOATcase has developed an anti-gravity case that will stick to any smooth surface. To accomplish this it uses "nano suction technology" which is really just a fancy term for many tiny suction cups. GOATcase claims that the case will adhere to smooth surfaces like wood, a whiteboard, metal, mirrors, and a computer screen. They [...]

It's hard to believe that it's been 9 years since Apple first introduced the world to the iPhone. I still remember the excitement I felt that day (6/29/2007) as I waited for my chance to stand in line (a small line) to purchase one of the most hyped phones of all time. You can read [...]

iona-dock-1

Until now, the only iPhone dock that I've ever used was attached to an alarm clock. Simple iPhone docks have intrigued me, but I had yet to try one and see if they were useful. The number one reason I never picked one up was due to the myriad of cases I enjoy using, since [...]

I just got an iPhone 6s and I love it. Usually, I don’t bother with a case, but because I paid full price this time to avoid a new contract, I decided to change that. Also, because I carry both my phone and wallet in the front pocket of my jeans, I wanted to give [...]

greytech-advent

From the "Are you kidding me?" files comes the Gray International Advent bumper case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. This case looks very slick with its two-piece design that only requires friction and no screws for assembly. There's a black rubber bumper that is first installed around the iPhone's edges, then the aerospace [...]

When I was a kid, we didn't have smartphones, tablets, hand held game consoles or the internet to entertain us. We had to use our imagination. Sticks became swords and cardboard boxes became forts. Help your kids ignite their creativity and imagination with the Moff Band, a successfully funded Kickstarter project from last year. It's [...]

TrackR Bravo review

Trackr2

Please do your homework before ordering this product. Read the comments below. It appears that this company is taking money and not shipping the orders. The Internet of Things (IoT) is all the rage right now. Adding smart tech to an old piece of tech or something non-tech like a set of keys or a [...]

cdock_01_iphone

With the average smartphone lifespan of two years, there's a good possibility you have an old iPhone or two shoved in a drawer or a box in the closet.  Consider pulling them out and recycling them into a very snazzy retro-style clock.  Cdock will turn your iPhone 4 or 4S into a sleek tabletop clock [...]

It's not Qi, but the juice pack dock from mophie does charge your iPhone and its juice pack battery case without plugging in a cable.  Just drop the iPhone (wearing its juice pack) into the dock, and the pins in the bottom of the dock mate up with charging points on the bottom of the [...]
