ProClip Keeps My iPhone 6+ Safe on the Road

I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6+ and a 2015 Lexus IS 250 F-Sport. A new phone and a new car meant I needed to rethink how I used technology on the go. The car has Apple’s EyesFree, but I still need a safe, secure place for my phone to charge. That’s where ProClip came in quite handy. I’ve used ProClips’s products on …

Tech On TV: Element Case Makes a Cameo on White Collar

I’m a big fan of the television show White Collar (and am bummed the series is coming to an end, and don’t get me started on The Newsroom being done. Grrrrr!)

Uber’s Real Flaw Gets Exposed During the Sydney Hostage Crisis

I’ve never used Uber, but I am familiar with it. They’ve had their fair share of issues related to their “surge” pricing, where the price of a ride can double, triple, or even quadruple depending on demand.

One of the inexpensive ways to carry and protect your Sony Xperia Z3 compact is the Nillkin Sparkle Leather Cover Hard Case. It has come “bling” without being obnoxious.
