Model sues Apple over naked photos in iCloud hack

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Last month’s highly publicized celebrity iCloud hacking got quite a bit of press, but Apple itself came out of the affair relatively unscathed (at least legally), blaming user error and weak password for the leaks, as well as the victims’ choosing not to implement iCloud’s 2-step log-in method (you know, the one no one uses). Joy Corrigan is an avid and accomplished iPhone-selfie taker Well, one victim, model Joy Corrigan, has decided that Apple should be held accountable for the leak, and has filed...

Review: Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

Monday, September 15, 2014

If there was any doubt as to whether or not the audio industry is still catering to Apple users, the recent glut of wireless AirPlay enabled speakers on the market should put your mind at ease. It was not all that long ago that you couldn’t find a speaker system without a built-in iPod dock, and now that Apple is pushing wireless, the music industry is following suit. Cambridge Audio, well known for their high- quality (and high-price) audio offerings, has entered the lucrative wireless speaker market with their...

Apple’s iPhone 6 event – The Good, The Bad, and the Meh

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Well, Apple’s iPhone 6 even turned out to be all that was rumored and more, and honestly, at the risk of spoiling this article, they really pulled it off. However, I’m not one to shy away from nit-picking, so let’s see what I can find to complain about. Here’s what was Good, Bad, and Meh about the iPhone 6 event. The Good iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus What could be bad? (At least until we get them and find some tragic flaw). Bigger screen, crazy thin, much better display (Retina HD) with new landscape...

REVIEW: PhoneSuit Flex XT iPhone battery

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Ahh, June 12, 2013, the day I first reviewed PhoneSuit’s Flex iPhone charger… The little charger that could. I loved that thing, and with good reason. It was small (the smallest 2600mAh battery available), had great ergonomics, and could fully recharge an iPhone and then some. Well, fast forward a year and PhoneSuit has released an updated Flex model – The Flex XT! So what has changed in the new model (besides the XT being added)? Well, honestly, almost nothing. However that ALMOST makes a big difference....

Too bad I have no idea what he’s saying (something about a lizard sex satellite I think…). Oh well. It’s still the best iPhone 6 mockup video I’ve seen. thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Den for the tip!  Read More

Review: Otterbox Commuter Series Wallet Case for iPhone

Monday, June 30, 2014

You know the old saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”? Well, Otterbox doesn’t. But that’s a good thing. Or at least I think it is. Honestly, even after using their Commuter Series Wallet case $44.95 ($39.99 Amazon) for over a month, I’m still not entirely sure it’s a good idea, but I DO love the case. But let’s back up. So what IS the Otterbox Wallet Case? Basically, it’s their popular, super-sturdy Commuter case, with an added sliding plastic compartment on the rear which allows you...

I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how many of you have contacted me asking if we could hang out, be BFFs, have me officiate your wedding, etc. Well, I am far too anti-social for any of THAT to happen, but I DO enjoy sitting alone in the dark for hours on end playing Clash of Clans with my imaginary online friends.

What’s another $100 when you’ve already spent $10,000 on a Mac Pro, am I right? Here’s another tip from my “this might only affect me but I’ll throw it out there anyway” department (and I suppose this could also be filed under “First-World-Problems” too)… So after over 2 months of waiting, I finally received my […]
