Review: Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

Minx Air 100

If there was any doubt as to whether or not the audio industry is still catering to Apple users, the recent glut of wireless AirPlay enabled speakers on the market should put your mind at ease. 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.

The Good iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus What could... Read More

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

Review: Otterbox Commuter Series Wallet Case for iPhone

otterbox commuter wallet iphone case

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?... Read More

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,... Read More

Review: Grace Digital’s 3play Receiver

Grace Digital 3play Receiver

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... Read More
