Almost everyone carries around a smart device of one kind or another. It is great that these devices have become such wonderful tools in our lives, but how often do you need a place to set them?

When packing for a day out, three things are always taken: my phone, iPad, and an extended battery. I’m not always near a power source, so planning how I’ll top-off my gadgets is my (slightly obsessive) concern. Until recently, I was carrying the MiLi Power King, but now my go-to battery is the 20,000 mAh Moka i6. Here’s why …
I am on the go a lot — almost always without access to electricity. Whether I’m hunting or coaching, being a geek in the great outdoors can sometimes leave me with dead devices.

When I moved to using my 15” MacBook Pro with retina display as my only computer last year, I found I needed a properly sized bag in which to carry it. My initial plan was to only carry an iPad, but that quickly disappeared as I found myself increasingly in need of a full computer and all of its power.Read more
The Lowepro Photo Hatchback 16L AW camera backpack is a great way to carry and protect your mirror less camera, a tablet and a healthy selection of gear.
When preparing for CES 2013 last January I tried a number of bags and backpacks that would allow me to carry my camera gear and my tablet all day long. Ultimately I
I’m a huge fan of the various products from iStabilizer. From their Flex smartphone holder to their Glass, to their Monopod, iStabilizer is one of those small companies whose products don’t grab a lot of attention, but they still stand out because they not only do their job, they do their job well. A few months ago iStabilizer went onRead more
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
Let’s face it, most of us who have become adept at using smartphones and tablets have become quite accustomed to using our fingers as the primary input devices. Microsoft took note of this and enveloped Windows 8 in something of a hybrid interface to permit this on touch-capable devices. Right now I’m running Windows 8 Pro on a 16″ DellRead more
There are a couple of things about the JuiceCan Portable Power Recharger I want to mention to y’all. First is the most obvious one: It’s a device that’s more eye-catching than your typical flat-black brick o’ power. Now, I prefer the “form over function” design strategy, and my portable power brick is pretty dull looking, but lots of people likeRead more
If you are looking for a small, light backpack you can stop reading now. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a backpack that is large, flexible, comfortable to carry and tough enough to last and last keep reading.
Tom Bihn’s Brain Bag is a pricey backpack that is large and flexible enough to serve as a weekender,
With all of the new options available in mobile computing, it is natural that kids are getting more exposure and usage out of all of these devices. Both of my kids received tablets for Christmas and are pretty proficient at using them for many tasks. While using these devices is fun it is still important that they have kid friendly
One of the worst things about selling my 11″ MacBook air after I traded up to the 15″ MacBook ProR was the fact that I could no longer use the Waterfield CitySlicker for 11″ MBA I had reviewed. When “ordering” the review sample I had designed a “loaded” version with a handle and D-rings. It was light. It was protective.Read more

Like many who ordered an iPhone 5 when they were first available, I didn’t have any kind of case, screen protector, or protective skin on hand when mine arrived. I did have a review sample of Dynaflo’s Liquid-Armor, however. Nano-coating tech? What’s that all about? I was ready to find out!

We’ve seen a number of different styli for the iPad and other touchscreen tablets. Most recently we did a video review of the LunaTik Touch Pen. (Read and watch it here) Unlike initial tablet styli that were… styli, the Touch Pen doubles as both a stylus and an ink pen. Better still, it switches from one to theRead more

Thank you for checking out our LunaTik Touch Pen project. Ever since we launched the TikTok+LunaTik Watch Kits on Kickstarter last year we
I do a lot of news items here at GD — just keeping you folks abreast of new offerings, deals, and the like. Every once in a while an item pops up that makes me think, “Yeah, okay, I’ve gotta give that a try.” Such an item was the Octa WhaleTail tablet stand/holder. I mean, it just looked cool, and
Using an iPhone and or iPad throughout most days, there is one thing I have learned. My hands can sure make a touch screen smudged up and grimy. While coaching my high school softball team this year, we used the iPad to collect all of the game stats. While this was awesome, I found myself cleaning my iPad after every
If there is one negative aspect about having a tablet computer, it is probably how to hold the thing. As their form factor is super handy when on the go or playing a game, it is not always easy to hold them when trying to get some real work done.
I have tried many products including cases that double as
