I am about as AR as it gets when it comes to my tech-gear. I do my very best to keep it in perfect condition but hate bulky cases that take away from the devices' sleek and slim form factor. I would prefer using my smartphone naked (aka no case) but would mentally kick myself if [...]

Earlier this year I reviewed the Toast wood skin for the Nexus 6p. Its unique material and precision design, while adding little to no bulk was just the minimalistic protection I wanted for my Nexus 6p. Add in the fact, it adhered directly to my device greatly reducing the chance of grit and grime building up [...]

I am a fan of keeping your handheld in a case. I regularly change my cases around, depending on use or mood. When I was offered the ZAGGskin for iPhone to review, I looked at the patterns on the web site, choose one, and thought (incorrectly) that it would be a case with that pattern [...]

The Phone Slipper is the second product that I have reviewed that allows you to combine your iPhone and your wallet. People like me who don't like to carry a lot of items with us when we are out and about love this stuff. I have been using the Case-Mate ID case since reviewing it [...]
