If you want more protection than the iFrogz Luxe Lean we reviewed the other day, but still want something that is thin and light protecting your 5th generation iPod touch, then this may be the case for you. The iFrogz Cocoon offers up great protection and is currently an amazing bargain. Normally $24.99, it is currently just $4.99.Read more
Apple may call the iPod a product line in decline, but I still love my 5th generation iPod touch. It’s my main music device and, when I’m home, it sees more use than my iPhone. When the iFrogz Luxe Lean Case for iPod touch 5th Generation went on sale for under $5, I grabbed one of the thin, light cases.Read more
Dan likes to tease me that when we’re together working, he never sees me wearing headphones; he says he just doesn’t see me as the type person to wear them. Well Dan, I may use them differently than you do, but I most definitely do wear headphones. These days the Harman Kardon Soho headphones are my favorites; here’s why …
Anyone who owns a smartphone and tablet knows that charging can become a juggling act between cables and plugs. Multiply those devices by a couple of owners, and suddenly a better storage and charging solution becomes a necessity; that’s where the Griffin PowerDock 5 Charging Station comes in. It efficiently stores, charges, and organizes up to five of different devices.
While I do own a decent DSLR and love to use it, the best camera you can use is the one in your hand. Most of you have heard that phrase, and it is true. Obviously no image can be captured if there is no camera to see it. These days almost everyone has a camera with them in the
Here is a picture of two iPod shuffles. Yes, they are different colors but have the same shape, design, controls and capacity.
If you look, touch or listen to these iPod shuffles, the ONLY difference you might notice is that the buttons on one are a tiny bit stiffer than the other. There’s no other difference.
You would, however, only
We brought an exclusive first look at the MiPow Boom mini (read the post), and then we shared the first ever review of the diminutive new speaker coming from MiPow. As you might recall, Judie and I met with MiPow in January when they were showing off their newest offerings at CES 2013. We were impressed by theRead more
In the realm of headphones the quip, “It’s better to look good than to feel good” might well be rendered as “It’s better to look good than to sound good.”. In both cases, the statement is obviously nonsense. Just ask anyone with chronic inflammatory arthritis… it doesn’t matter a bit what you look like if you feel awful. Similarly
We posted our review of the MiPow Boom mini the other day. (Read it.) The speaker is tiny but the sound is anything but tinny. I’m impressed by the sound such a small speaker is able to pump out and I still can’t believe that, after using the speaker pretty continually since we got here to Jamaica, I
I will admit to having gone into my review of the MiPow Boom and MiPow Boom mini Bluetooth speakers positively inclined toward both products. After all, when Judie and I met with Brian Holmes, vice president and general manager of MiPow, back at CES in January we were immediately impressed by the attention to quality and detail the companyRead more
The 5th Generation iPod touch is the most iPhone-esque iPod touch yet, and the Sena Ultra Thin Access Pro is a great way to protect it. The new iPod touch is thinner than ever, but it offers specs that are more inline with the iPhone than ever before.
Like the iPhone 5 the new iPod touch has a larger screen.
I love my iPhone and iPad, but I also wanted something small and convenient that simply played music. The 7th Generation iPod nano fit the bill perfectly and, thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth, it is more flexible as a musical source than ever. And while this is one small, tough little music player, it does need protection. I optedRead more
While Elana, Judie, Kevin and I have been down here in Aruba this week both my iPhone 5 and my 4th generation iPod touch have been well-protected in Lifeproof cases. The cases do a great job of protecting your device from bumps, bruises and… water. And while I didn’t want to dump my iPhone 5 in the Caribbean, IRead more
Okay yeah, I haven’t bought one for myself yet, but I have to say that I really do like the idea of wood in conjunction with computer gear. For so long, “PC” meant “beige plastic box” that it’s nice to see that we’ve reached the stage in design where that no longer obtains by default quite so much. (I think
Carrying your stuff around used to be a lot simpler, honestly; guys had wallets (and distributed their other stuff in various pockets), and women had purses. Simple, if not entirely effective (especially for the guys). But now, when you may be trucking around laptops, tablets, MP3 players, smart phones, Bluetooth devices, and all their associated cordage? A bit trickier. So
I have very, very mixed feelings about the whole “secret Santa at the office” concept. For one, being as how I’m Jewish, the American assumption that everyone celebrates Christmas (and that you’re a grumpy jerk if you insist otherwise) does get on my nerves sometimes. And having it at your office, with people you may or may not even like?
Every now and then a product comes along that not only meets your expectations but actually exceeds them. That’s the case so far with the Libratone Zipp AirPlay Wireless Speaker. Sure, it has a cool, unique look. And sure, the fact that you can change the wool covers then, in seconds, have a speaker that looks completely different is very
With Apple changing their dock connector this year, I’ve finally moved to a portable Bluetooth streaming speaker system in my work space; and while it works well enough, it’s an oddly shaped gray plastic box. I keep it hidden at the bottom of our television stand; that way we can hear it, but no one has to look at it.
We reviewed the Satechi BT MediaRemote back in July and were impressed with the functionality it brings to pretty much all iOS devices. Sure, it is good for controlling music from a distance but it really shines as a remote shutter control for the iPhone’s camera. Dexim has gone one better with their new ClickStik for iOS. We brought wordRead more
If you read the site you might recall that I’m married to a woman who doesn’t like headphones and earbuds. Yes, Elana finds earbuds to be quite uncomfortable and, if used for too long, downright painful. There is one exception – well until now just one exception – that is YurBuds. I learned about YurBuds at CES 2011 and whileRead more
Ever have a busy day where it’s never really convenient to sit down and find a charger for your iPhone? Ever sit down on a transcontinental flight only to find out your iPod doesn’t have as much juice left as you thought? Ever wish you had a cable handy to charge or sync your device? Well, USBFever has the rightRead more
Every now and then a product comes along that makes me say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” iLuv has new “Premium Audio Cables and Charging and Sync Solutions” available as part of their myLink collection, and one of them fits the bill quite well.
Here’s what the company has to say about their new offerings.
iLuv’s audio and data
There are some products that just make sense from the minute you see them. Within seconds you know what the product is all about and it is instantly clear why the product exists.
This is not one of those products.
No, the JustMobile AluCube Mini is one of those products that looks like nothing more than a money grab- a
Books have been hollowed out since the beginning of time to hide things, whether it be to disguise and hold adult beverages, money, guns or other “treasures” inside. But here’s a novel idea, rather than hollow out the book to hide something, why not display the book while it is being used to charge your mobile device?
Many of your
Last week we took a look at the latest iOS app from SRS labs. The app takes the audio coming from the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and enhances it in remarkable ways. The main downside with the app is that in order to get the audio enhancement you need to use the app for your music. Try to listen
