Spawned in the horrendous heat of a Los Angeles winter, James was born with an incessant need to press buttons. Whether it was the car radio, doorbells on Halloween or lights, James pushed, pressed and prodded every button. No elevator was left unscathed, no building intercom was left un-rung, and no person he’s known has been left un-annoyed.

You know what sucks? When it’s cold, you’ve got gloves, but have to take them off to use your phone. Gloves have been popping up that work with today’s smartphone screens, and other tech including nano-particule liquid coatings for gloves. So when Mujjo asked us to try out their set...

Windows 8 is the final maturation of the Windows platform for a touchscreen world. It should come as no surprise then that in many ways Windows 8 is both excellent and flawed, but this review is not about that. Instead, its about the finest Windows RT tablet on the market,...

Libratone Zipp Review

Audio quality is scientific…until it isn’t. Until it comes into your home, or until you’re in the store listening, and you say “that sounds good”…or not. That’s why companies can charge ridiculous fees for high-end audio equipment and claim it’s better when, in fact, it’s worse. It’s too easy to...

Logitech Folio Protective Case for iPad mini Review

As I stated in my review of the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Case, I don’t like holding electronics directly, especially tablets, which are heavier and not necessarily comfortable in rubber or aluminum. The iPad mini is the best exception because of it’s very light weight and thin frame, though the limitations...

When we have a problem, it’s tough to know what to do sometimes. Sometimes we don’t even know the question to ask. If there’s someone around who’s been in the same situation they can almost always help you out, but these days not only do so many of us not...

The iPad mini isn’t known for productivity. Even now, with the smaller tablet sharing everything the larger iPad Air has sans a larger display, the device is still a paltry 7.9 inches. Most keyboards are at least 10-inches across and for good reason: that’s the minimum size for our hands...

Not everyone has the blessing of a naturally well-lit workspace, and even those that do sometimes need a little more light for writing, typing, or really anything else. Desk lamps are a dime a dozen, but dealing with the standard bulbs or going for a special bulb type requires you...

Protecting our smartphones is kind of a big deal. We spend hundreds of dollars on insurance, cases, covers, and more wacky accessories just to make sure that when we get clumsy the damned $500+ phone doesn’t snap in two. Heck, I know plenty of people who have spent more on...
