SpiderStyle i5d iPhone Battery Case Review

I've written numerous times about the atrocious battery life the iPhone 5 and 5s get. It's a daily struggle for me; as an app developer it was awful. As a journalist it's terrible. And as someone who only uses it for checking e...

HTC One M8 Harmon Kardon Edition Review

Today’s best smartphones don’t joke around. It’s no longer enough to have a good camera, high-grade bright and colorful display, plenty of available memory, strong build, and other features; they have to stand out. Some of my f...

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard for iPad Air Review

For the best keyboards with an iPad, Logitech has been the top of the line. In fact, the Ultrathin is my current go-to keyboard, and I've recommended it above every other iPad keyboard and keyboard case since it released late l...

Mixbag Transformer Bag Review

Laptop bags are a tough thing to buy. We all have different everyday needs that don’t always associate with anyone else’s. And we don’t just use the bag to it’s fullest, we use it to our most benefit...but at the same time also...

SVS SB-1000 Gaming Subwoofer Review

Multimedia is only as good as the hardware to play it back. Your Nintendo 3DS may be a great gaming platform, but only for little games that are good for bite-sized chunks (generally). The iPhone isn't built for watching a full...

Blue Microphone Spark Digital Review

Smartphones are behind for professional-grade equipment, even though we’re using them more and more for just about everything. So what happens? The quality of our content drops. Convenience always trumps usability, quality, and...

Lightning Rabbit Smartphone Cables Review

Smartphone connectors are a tough nut to crack. It's hit or miss, but all too easy to miss unless you stick with the expensive, top-tiered 1st party cables. If you're on an iOS device, that means at least $30 a pop for Lightnin...

Bluelounge Kii Review

In this era of ultraportables, smartphones, and minimalism, carrying more around is passe. Doing so defeats the whole purpose of simplicity, and at least for me, it's a burden that we should be able to get rid of entirely. Grea...

Proper communication in the workplace is the most important aspect of any business. The best intentions, plans, and people in the world can't get anything done if they can't communicate properly. There's a reason why opening li...

These days, we all have multiple smart devices. Smartphone, tablet, media player, portable game console, wearable...something that plugs in via USB. Some of us share space with roommates and family with their own devices. And k...

Kobo Aura Review

E-readers are a great underutilized technology, one that's privy to great innovation. If only more of us had time to read books! I haven't had the time to read a full book in over a few months, and the one I did read was short ...
