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...

Thursday, June 26, 2014

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. Over the years we have actually created quite a decent clan, one that has become increasingly obsessed with Clan Wars, and we need a few more good men/Mac Chicks who want to join us in our quest for glory...

Review: Grace Digital’s 3play Receiver

Thursday, June 19, 2014

If there’s one thing I am grudgingly coming to love it’s the wireless freedom bestowed by Bluetooth speakers. I say “grudgingly”, because I find Bluetooth speakers have WILDLY different ranges, and even the same speaker can one day allow you a 20 ft stroll around your house without losing connection, and the next crap out at 10 feet. But despite Bluetooth’s somewhat temperamental range issues, it still beats being tethered to a speaker by a mini stereo plug. However once you’ve committed...

Tips/How To

How to: Get your 30-inch Apple Display to work with your new Mac Pro

MacProFront

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 […]
