In the North East, during winter, using our touchscreen enabled devices outside becomes difficult. No, not because the screens don’t function well in cold temperatures. Because we are often times wearing gloves! Imagine the situation. Your iPhone is buried deep in your pocket. A call comes in. You fumble for your phone and try to “slide to unlock” with yourRead more
I know this is going to come as a shock to those of who you frequent the site but… I love SCOTTEVEST clothing. I wear one of their jackets pretty much every day, I love my SeV hoodie and, recently, I got some of their Q-Zip and performance t-shirts which I pretty much live in when I’m not inRead more
Touchscreens are awesome but they are also fingerprint magnets. As the above image shows, try as I might, I can’t seem to keep my screen pristine. And that’s just the aesthetic issue. Recent studies have shown that touchscreens tend to collect lots and lots of germs. That’s especially problematic now that it is flu season.
Seriously… it is gross toRead more
Cervantes Mobile has released a new portable bluetooth keyboard designed specifically for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
The Jorno keyboard…
…folds down to a compact size to easily fit in your pocket or bag, and includes a detachable cradle to hold your device in either portrait or landscape orientation. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to pair the keyboard to your
Judie knows gadgets. She’s been blogging for years and has tried out hundred and hundreds of different items and accessories. Many of them get “ooos and ahhs” from her, but rarely have I seen a product draw such immediate enthusiasm as this one. No, this product received an “OMG Great Idea!!! I need some to keep on hand!!”
Okay they really aren’t brass knuckles. That would be just silly.
Once you stick the Grip-Ez onto the back of your mobile device with the included 3M tape what it does do is offer an unparalleled amount of grip. Made from hard plastic and rubber the add-on is said to be very durable while providing your fingers with a comfortable
Since winning a recent bout with back-pain I’ve begun, at the recommendation of my chiropractor, carrying my wallet in my front pants pocket. It lives in the right side of my trousers while my iPhone lives in the left. That presents a problem when it comes time to place my keys somewhere. I don’t want to put my keys inRead more
No matter how long you think your mobile devices can maintain a full day’s charge, you’re going to be put to the test. It’s always going to be a race to find an outlet or to boot up your computer as your phone’s battery starts to fade out completely. It’s happened to me plenty of times. When I’m at a
Last February I had the chance to review Thinksound’s first two offerings. The “Rain” and the “Thunder” were the company’s first entries into the earbud market. Thinksound is a company that takes environmental impact seriously. Everything they use in the construction of their products, from the packaging made from recycled materials to the PVC free cable, is all about leavingRead more
One of the downsides of being an early adopter is the lack of good accessories for your new device. When the Streak was released, Dell seized the opportunity to fill in the gap and issued their own leather wallet case for the Streak. Given the limited options available so far, I purchased Dell’s Leather Wallet Case to protect my Streak
Alas, this weekend brings the end of Summer for those of us in the U.S. Like many others, I’m trying to cram in three days of beach fun into this Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, duty still often calls and I still need to be ‘connected’ for work even while trying to grab some relaxation with friends and family. Unlike last
It happens without fail at least once a week. I install a new piece of software on my phone, or read a book on the Kindle app, or I get caught up in too many IM conversations…and I run my battery down mid-day with no access to a charger for several hours. Oops. Luckily, there’s products like the Primo CubeRead more
External batteries are great, but they’re only as good as the mAhs they possess; once you deplete them, until you find yourself near a charging source they become useless. The Monaco Mobile Power Solar Charger from Wireless Ground takes care of that problem by harnessing the power of the sun to recharge itself. You can use the battery to rechargeRead more
I was perusing the Android Marketplace for new apps and I came across the above application. Yes, you read that right. It’s a backpack and not really an application. The backpack in question is a Ecowatt Black Solar Backpack.
I am not quite sure what to think of this. It’s probably not malware, but it’s not software either. Wouldn’t thisRead more
PhoneSuit has introduced their latest creation… The Primo Battery Cube for SmartPhones. The Primo Cube is small… really, really small. It is so small that it will fit in the palm of your hand. So small that it is just about 1.5 inches (40mm) in length and width.
Yes it is small but it is large enough to offer integrated
Since there are no specific Droid armbands, I had to get creative to find a way to carry my bulky phone while I run. A bit of google-fu led to some posts over on Droid Forums about iPhone and iPod Touch cases holding the Droid reasonably well. I’ve been using a Belkin Dualfit for the last few weeks. How doesRead more
I take my phone everywhere. During work and everyday life I don’t worry much about it; I work in an office and live in suburban New Jersey. It’s not really a rough life for a smartphone. I do, however, take it when I go hiking, biking and running as a GPS tracker, plus it rides along in my pocket whenRead more

Google has already released a spare battery and a desktop dock, which we reviewed, for the Nexus One. There was talk when the Nexus One was released of rumors of both the desktop dock as well as a car dock. Well, the car dock is now officially available for order!
As we discussed in
Looks like those of us with Motorola Droids can enjoy some OtterBox love these days. While they can’t offer the waterproof/dustproof/lifeproof protection some of their tougher cases are known for, OtterBox seems to have cracked the ultimate dilemma; protecting phones that need to work as two pieces!
Here’s what Otterbox says about their new Commuter Case for Droid:
I was looking at my nightstand last night and had a sudden realization…R I have too many devices laying around and I need something to organize them and charge them at th same time. Yes, there are lots of “stations” that will charge multiple devices but none have really caught my eye… Until now.
The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger
AT&T fans this might be the moment you’ve been waiting for. I tried the Nexus One when it first came out but was bothered that it restricted me to EDGE only when using it with my AT&T SIM card. I ended up picking up a T-Mobile pre-paid SIM card so I could enjoy 3G but was very disappointed in their
I have to be honest and admit that I’ve never really been one to play around with custom ringtones for individual contacts. I just look at the screen to see who is calling and decide at that point whether or not to answer. So when Electric Pocket recently asked Gear Diary if we would like to take a look at
If you’re like me, you use your wireless phone for everything. My iPhone never leaves my grasp, and even at home I find myself using it read e-mail on the sofa, or browse the TV guide. While this is good for my information consumption it’s very bad for my iPhone’s battery life, and as a result I find myself constantly
After several years of mobile device designs trending toward smooth, curving lines and symmetrical shapes, the Motorola Droid stands out. Sure, you’ll see lots of non-geeks carrying it, but from the angular design of the device itself to the style of the commercials Verizon developed to sell it, it’s clear that the Droid is intended to appeal to the technologically
