Review: Kenu Airframe Plus

Kenu AirFrame

I drive a Camry. I’m not proud of it. I’m not embarrassed. It’s fine. That’s what owning a Camry is. However, there IS one thing that Camry owners have had to deal with, and that is horrible AC power outlet placement and no large suction-cup-able flat surfaces for mounting our iDevices. All solutions that I HAVE found have suction cups just a little too... Read More

Review: Seidio iPhone cases are pretty sweet, but pricey

Dilex Surface

Given how many iPhone case manufacturers there are out there, I guess it’s not too surprising that I hadn’t heard of Seidio until a few of their iPhone 6 and 6 plus cases showed up here at the lab for review, but I must say I am impressed, particularly with their Surface cases. But let’s take them one at a time… SURFACE Available in 2 models (and for both... Read More

Review: Protect your BIG Investment with these 5 Griffin iPhone 6 Plus cases

5griffin cases

My transition from an iPhone 5S to an iPhone 6 Plus has gone relatively smoothly – I would say it took about 5 days to become so accustomed to its larger size that my old 5S now seems toylike in my hand. However, while I may be used to its size, that doesn’t mean it’s dainty, and the thought of placing it inside a giant hunk of rubber to protect its giant screen from... Read More

Review: JunoPower’s Kaebo Lightning Cable

Juno Power Kaebo Lightning Cable

OK, get ready for some real excitement because I’m about to review… A LIGHTNING CABLE! That’s right, one of those $3 things Apple charges $19 for, Amazon charges $11 for, eBay charges $9 for, and which you have to replace every 3 months or so. So what makes this cable so special? Well, in theory, you don’t have to replace it. Or at least that’s the... Read More

How To: turn off predictive text in iOS 8


I’m usually pretty good about giving Apple’s “new way” of doing things a chance. Whether it was the dual scroll arrow on the bottom of Finder windows, or the inverse scrolling on the MacBook’s touchpad, my motto has always been, “Well, Apple must have researched this, so let’s see if this is as good, better, or at least not worse than the... Read More

Model sues Apple over naked photos in iCloud hack


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... Read More

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... Read More
