I’m a huge fan of minimalist cases and that tends to hold true for pretty much every device I use. I want something as thin as possible on my iPhone 4. I want something that doesn’t add too much bulk to my iPad 2. And I want to get a case for the BlackBerry PlayBook RIM gave out at theRead more

Recently at Blackberry World Conference 2011, RIM made some announcements on a few new devices, apps, OS 7, and most notably the new Multi Platform Blackberry Enterprise Server. Blackberry has been under some pressure in the past few years, mainly because they are losing market share daily to both mobile hardware and software competitors. Most of the recent
While attendees were Tweeting, BBM’ing and trying not to nod off during Mike Lazaridis’s keynote address during this year’s BlackBerry World Conference, a jolt of enthusiasm swept through the crowd as RIM announced every attendee would receive a complimentary 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
Suh-Weet! Gauging the rabid excitement of the crowd, the news was very well received. Hopefully by the
It’s not very often that I can get excited about a universally fitting mobile phone sleeve, mainly because most of the ones I’ve reviewed in the past were pretty utilitarian. But when I received an email from Oberon Design, the company responsible for some of my favorite Kindle2, Kindle DX and iPad cases ever, asking if I’d like
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
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
Back in April I told you about the Native Union Moshi Moshi 01. The sleek and sophisticated handsfree unit allow the users to make and receive mobile calls while experiencing the ease of comfort of a landline base.
Native Union is out with the next release in the Moshi Moshi line. The Moshi Moshi 03 draws from the original
Let’s face it, technology has finally gotten to the point where some of the gadgets we lusted after in cartoons and science fiction programs as children are now becoming a reality. I mean, the iPhone does even more than a Star Trek communicator (well everything but communicate intergalactically but I’m sure that is coming). The iPad looks like one ofRead 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
Suddenly all the dads in my life are going Apple. My father-in-law loves his iPad and my dad is using a new 21″ iMac and is taking my iPhone 3GS. (Well that is… if I can ever order the iPhone 4…)
If dad has an iPad you might want to get him Case-mate’s iPad cases.
The Walkabout has an MSRPRead more
Case-Mate has released 5 new Barely There cases in support of Gay Pride Month. The new cases are available for the iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod Touch 2G, Blackberry Bold 9700 and the Blackberry 8520 and combine an awesome time-proven design (I personally love the Case-Mate Barely There series of cases) with bold new graphics.
The designs include:

I enjoy reviewing gear. I enjoy it even more when the product I’m reviewing just makes sense. Such is the case with the Native Union Moshi Moshi 02.
I still have a land line at home, but I know many people do not. With today’s unlimited long distance mobile plans and even more companies offering unlimited everything, more and more
There are plenty of choices when it comes to screen and body protection for your electronic devices and I think I’ve tried them all. Clear Coat might just be the best of the bunch.
What is Clear Coat? Here’s how the company describes it.
Simply put, Clear-Coat is the only protection you’ll need for your devices. Forget those awkward, ugly
Yesterday I reviewed one of Sena’s iPhone pouches –the Corsa Pouch. The company was kind enough to send one of their BlackBerry Bold 9700 cases, the Leatherskin, for review as well. This case takes a more traditional approach to protecting the smartphone — it wraps around the back, sides and part of the front of the phone giving protection to

Not all cell phone cases are made the same. Some are really just junky cheap knockoff’s of knockoff’s, and some are genuinely worthy of the your money and your device. We do a lot of case reviews here; we love our phones and we love protecting them. I have yet to meet anyone who hasn’t had
This is a joint review from Thomas and Dan. Dan’s comments are in black, and Thomas’ are in blue italics.
Dan – Thomas was kind enough to send me his Blackberry Bold 9700 a few weeks ago. I have an AT&T branded version of the phone. His phone, however, had one distinct advantage over mine — because it is on
Are you concerned about cell phone radiation? Radiation is a form of energy. Your cell phones antenna emits powerful radiation in order to send and receive signals to and from its wireless network. According to researchers the problem with this is some of this energy radiates from the antenna into your head.

I have seen a lot of new and exciting things during my time at CES 2010 so far but no company has impressed me more with their 2010 line up of new products than Case-Mate.
The accessory maker has hit some serious home runs with their new product line up and Andrew from Case-Mate was kind enough to walk
We recently reviewed (and enjoyed using) Cignia’s Wireless Music Station. It now looks like the company is showing off their goods at CES with updated pricing. Now, both the NAO Symphony and NAO Symphony Noir are priced at $299. The free BlackBerry and iPhone apps will give you additional control as you stream your tunes wirelessly (the systems support both
