Phoneblocs – The iPhone I wish Apple was making

Phone blocs

If there is one thing Apple isn’t known for, it’s upgradeability. As a traditionally hardware-based company, it’s in Apple’s best interest for you to throw away your iPhone, MacBook, or iMac every 2-3 years or so if you decide you want something as simple as more storage space or even RAM. Long-time readers are likely sick to death of my call for more storage... Read More

Finally, you can play Super Mario Bros. with a banana on your Mac!

makey makey

I’m sure there are evil MIT graduates somewhere – ones with no sense of humor, plotting to use their giant brains to take over the planet and enslave us all, but I must say more often than not these MIT boys seem to like to blow off steam by making wacky-ass inventions. Like this one: MaKey MaKey. I’d explain what it does but this video does a better job than my dumb... Read More

REVIEW: PhoneSuit Flex iPhone battery


Yep, another battery review – I just can’t help myself. Thanks to my Clash of Clans addiction, I can no longer make it through the day on a single iPhone charge, and I need to have some sort of extra juice with me at all times. However PhoneSuit’s new Flex charger for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch’s with the lightning connector is different than most for a couple... Read More

Posted without comment – iPotty iPad toilet

iPotty iPad toilet

OK, screw that, I must comment. First of all, I want the adult version of this. Secondly, as a parent, I truly think this would actually have made potty training our kids WAY easier. Of course, as a DAD, potty training was super easy, as my wife did it for us. But like many seemingly bizarre iPad/iPhone accessories on Amazon, whether or not they might legitimately work, the REAL... Read More

New iWatch video showcases bleak future after Zombie Apocalypse


Well, this has got to be the best fake Apple product concept video/ post-apocalyptic survival movie I’ve ever seen. Check out this amazing video made by faithful Macenstein reader Zach King. Set in the year 2019, it tells the story of a beautiful 16-year old girl, alone in a world ravaged by some unknown plague, in which she, her trusty iWatch, and a copy of Tangled, are apparently... Read More

Review: X-Doria’s Dash Folio for iPad mini

X-Doria Dash Folio

I’ve been an iPad user since day 1, and an iPad mini owner since… maybe day 57 or so…. (not as impressive, I know). But in all my days of tablet use, I have yet to find a portfolio-style case that I enjoyed using. Until now. (Queue harp music). Actually, X-Doria’s Dash Folio for iPad mini ($39.99) is probably not all that different or revolutionary as far as... Read More

The “Steve Jobs” collectible figure which... Read More

A Photo Booth without the booth


Everyone knows the only thing worse than getting married is attending someone else’s wedding. (Or is that just me?) Well, in any event, if you are a prospective bride or groom and live near the Chicagoland area, you may as well throw your poor guests a bone and rent Folio, the portable Photo Booth created by faithful Macenstein reader Nick and his wife out of an old 20-inch... Read More

The BIG news from CES: OhMiBod keeps Innovating & Vibrating

Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 2.30.19 PM

While we were unable/didn’t want to attend CES this year, faithful Macenstein reader Mark made sure we didn’t miss the BIGGEST news coming out of CES this year, namely that iBod, the company that began as a bit of a tech joke for making iPod-compatible vibrators a few years back, has continued to innovate and vibrate. What’s new this year? BLUETOOTH! And while... Read More

Geek up the tree with this paper craft Happy Mac

Paper Craft Happy Mac

Thanks to “The Man” (the Fireman, that is) this year I have finally stopped using candles to light up my Christmas tree. Sure, it takes away from the strict 1800′s traditions I like to follow, but on the plus side it blows wide-open the opportunity for safely covering my tree in flammable paper ornaments. And what could be cuter or more flammable than this vintage... Read More
