Fusionwerkz Raw iPhone 4 Case Review

Back in September, I was given the opportunity to review the ElementCase Vapor case for the iPhone 4, and I just couldn’t give it my recommendation, due primarily to the fact that it was uncomfortable to hold.  I’ve now been given the chance to review another CNC-machined aluminum case for the iPhone 4, the Fusionwerkz …

BBP Bags unveils DSLR Slinger with iPad slot

If it can be said that there is any unifying trait amongst contributors here at The Gadgeteer, it is that we love our gear bags.  I personally have a soft spot for bags that cater to specific gadget junkie proclivities.  Case in point, BBP Bags (whose Industries Messenger bag I reviewed not too long ago) …

HandlePod Camera Stabilizer Review

One of the first good “tricks” that budding photographers learn is that good, sharp pictures often require a tripod, or at the very least, require the photographer to brace him or herself against something solid to reduce camera shake.  Unfortunately, this just isn’t possible in many situations, and otherwise good pictures are sometimes ruined because …

ElementCase Vapor Case for iPhone 4 Review

If ever a manufacturer has handed third-party accessories manufacturers a blank check, it was Apple with the iPhone 4.  Whereas the third-party smartphone case market traditionally sets its sights on those who want to protect or personalize their phones, the widely-publicized “Antennagate” issue has effectively ensured that practically every iPhone 4 owner will purchase a …

Camera Strap Buddy brings comfort on the cheap

While I swear by my BlackRapid camera strap, and I will preach its virtues to the masses at the drop of a hat, I realize that many people really aren’t in a position to spend $50 or more on a camera strap.  If you want the across-the-chest style, but you’re on a budget, you might …

Incipio Feather Case for iPad Review

My first several weeks of iPad ownership were fraught with fear.  The device has such a gorgeous back casing — the glossy black Apple logo floating in a sea of finely brushed aluminum — that I was ridiculously careful about setting it down for fear of scratching, denting, or otherwise marring it.  It was clear …

Native Union Moshi Moshi 02 Handset Review

Being born in the 1970s, I grew up in a world where landline telephones were a central part of every person’s life.  Every teenage girl had a princess phone, and every family kitchen had a wall-mounted phone with a ridiculously long cord.  Talking on the phone hands-free meant tilting one’s head sideways and using one’s …
