You’re buying an Apple Car, Swatch Steal’s Apple’s One More Thing, and Samsung tries to rip-off the iPad Pro before Apple even releases it

Well, looks like you’re buying an Apple Car after all Assuming, that is, you’re one of those people who hates the “driving” part of driving your car. After months (or has it been years at this point?) of rumors swirling around the the possibility of Cupertino producing a self-driving electric car, Apple has reportedly hired former Tesla employee Jamie Carlson,... Read More

How NOT to clean your Apple gear

27D8CA0800000578-0-image-m-6_1429688632310

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. That is the lesson being learned by one cheating Japanese Apple fan after his (presumably EX) girlfriend sent him photos of all his Apple gear fully submerged in the bathtub, including his iMac. Now, of course this is tragic, and as much as I hate to see ANY Apple device submerged under water, I think we we really all should... 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

TIMgoodbadmeh

What level of support should a successful game developer be expected to offer?

This message pops up about 20 seconds into gameplay each time I load the game

I’ll admit upfront that I am writing this article out of personal frustration towards BackFlip studios, formerly one of my favorite iOS game developers, but my long-standing support issues with them raise a question that ALL successful developers should be asking themselves – namely, “How much support am I morally, ethically, and perhaps even LEGALLY supposed to offer... Read More

Review: Audioengine’s B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver

B1_lifestyle

I’m about to try to make a case for why you should want the $189 Audioengine’s B1 Bluetooth Music Receiver . It won’t be easy, as for that price you could get TWO Airport expresses that could also wirelessly stream music, or for $10 more you could have an Airport Extreme, which boasts a bunch of useful features in addition to streaming music. So why would you... Read More

Review: Divoom Airbeat-10 Wireless Bluetooth Water Resistant Speaker

Divoom Airbeat 10

Not sure what a “saction cup” is but it might explain why it does not hold like a suction cup would I’ve reviewed so many compact bluetooth speakers over the years that I feel I have written “Sounds great for it’s size” over a hundred times. And it’s true. Even $30 speakers sound pretty damn good these days, and if you take into account... Read More

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
