Review: flatOUT™ LED Lightning by Scosche (That’s right, I’m going to review a lightning cable.)

Scosche flatOUT Lightning cable

If you’ve been a loyal Apple supporter/upgrader, odds are by now you have probably owned 4-5 Apple devices that utilize a Lightning cable to charge. And if you are a SMART Apple user, you have never ONCE paid the $19.00 (formerly $25) Apple charges for its cables, when dozens of 3rd party accessory makers sell theirs for about half that. As overpriced as Apple’s cables are,... Read More

Review: Seidio’s OBEX Waterproof iPhone case

FullSizeRender 6

I’ve has a standalone waterproof Canon camera for years, and while it has certainly allowed me to get shots with the kids out in the ocean that I would be too scared to attempt with my SLR or my iPhone, I never loved that camera. The display was hard to see, especially with sunglasses, the pictures were OK, but not great, and the camera stunk as an all-purpose camera – it... Read More

Apple’s Spring Ahead event: The Good, the Bad, and the Meh

REVIEW: PhoneSuit Flex XT iPhone battery

PhoneSuit Flex XT

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!... Read More

Safari, meet Firefox


You may recall last week we showcased the wonderful work of photo artist Mike Roshuk and his Internet Browser girls series. You may ALSO remember that there were a few glaring holes in his web browser girl gallery, most importantly the sexy-sounding Firefox. Well, Mike was nice enough to drop us a line letting us know that he has fixed that hole, and then some. Behold Firefox, Opera,... Read More

Well, hello there, Safari!


I’ve never really looked at my web browser as a sexy woman (probably because I’m too busy using my web browser to look AT sexy women) but photo artist Mike Roshuk has, and he’s posted some of his “Girls as Browsers” concepts. I particularly like the clueless Internet Explorer and her Blue Screen of death. However I am saddened by the omission of FireFox,... Read More
