Review: iPin adds freakin’ lasers to your iPhone!

ipin

Well, the must have holiday gift for both you are your pet is clearly the iPin ($86 at Amazon). OK, OK, the iPin may technically be designed to help business folks control and interact with their presentations on stage, but where it REALLY excels is at entertaining/tiring out your pet. What is it? It’s a tiny pin-like device that you insert into your iPhone’s audio... Read More

Review: Bravo Case for iPhone 5

bravo waterproof iPhone case

Statistically speaking, if your iPhone is going to die an accidental death, it will likely be either from a fall or drowning in the toilet. Just like people. And if you have small kids, the odds of both of those events happening increases 10 fold. But is the fear of an impact or submersion worth having your iPhone encased in some bulky, unstylish rubber and plastic monstrosity... Read More

Review: PocketPlug case for iPhone – Never feel powerless again!

Prong PocketPlug

I’ve always been interested in portable charging solutions for my iPhone, which is odd since I am never more than 2 feet from my computer or a USB charging cable. Still, I am a sucker for having a constant charge, which is why Prong’s PocketPlug ($69.95) caught my eye. I’ve always been a big fan of portable battery cases, but the PocketPlug is something different.... Read More

Games That Don’t Suck: Samurai Siege

Samurai Siege

I’ve been putting off writing about Samurai Siege (free) for a few weeks now, primarily because it so closely resembles one of my favorite games (and previous “Games That Don’t Suck” nominee) Clash of Clans. I’m not a fan of games that rip-off other successful game formulas, but I cannot deny that I have been playing the game nearly non-stop and enjoying... Read More

Review DropCam HD

DropCam HD

Considering I own almost nothing of value worth stealing, it’s odd I find myself so intrigued with remote home monitoring, yet I am. And while I’d like to pretend I enjoy the ability to safeguard my home for my wife and kids, really, I just like checking in on our new puppy Chewie, and making sure he isn’t eating our couch pillows while we are at the store or... Read More

Review: Wren V5AP – Wireless Speaker with AirPlay

Wren V5AP

As an insomniac, I’ve seen pretty much EVERY infomercial over the years, and I’ve managed to resist almost all of them (save a Bowflex which I use primarily as a drying rack for wet clothes). One of the few to ever really cause me to give pause however (aside from the Hawaii Chair) is the Bose radio commercial, with its promise of “Room-Filling sound”. It... Read More

Review: Digital Treasures Props Power Case for iPad mini

Digital Treasures Props Power Case

With each new model Apple releases of its iDevces, two things are certain. First, Apple will reduce the thickness of the device. Second, Apple will claim the device has the same, or perhaps even slightly more battery life than the previous model. However, as someone who uses their iDevices pretty much all day, every day, I can’t help but wonder what the battery life would... Read More

REVIEW: PhoneSuit Flex iPhone battery

PhoneSuitFlex_03

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

Review: bem wireless Mobile Speaker

bem wireless speaker

As a long-time Apple user, I’m used to seeing hardware get progressively smaller, thinner, and lighter, and for the most part, as with phones and laptops, this “smaller is better” attitude has largely been successful. Even camera lenses have been able to produce above-decent images at less than 1/8th the size of traditional camera lenses. However one area where... Read More

Review: iKit NuCharge external battery for iPhone 5

iKit NuCharge_Front_HERO

Ever since losing our power for 7 days during Hurricane Sandy, I’ve grown rather paranoid about the idea of not being able to use my iPhone for more than 6 minutes. Unfortunately until recently the selection of external batteries for the iPhone 5 was pretty anemic. But in recent months a number of companies have stepped up to the plate, including a new face on the scene named... Read More
