Earlier this week I had the opportunity to check out a screening of The Martian, directed by Ridley Scott, who has a history of making films that aren’t only well produced but star actors who have a habit of being known for one acting genre and changing that.
Fact is, what we once thought was considered “mid-range” in regards to smartphones has truly changed. And now, you can have the same premium features you’d expect from those $500 and above smartphones at a reasonable price!
Sometimes you need a little bit of battery life, sometimes, you need some memory, and EMTEC’s Power Connect provides both!
I asked the Gear Diary team a question last night: if you had an additional $300, how would you spend it? The reason I asked, was that $300 seemed to be the average cost difference between an iPhone/Galaxy phone, and the new Nexus phones (Nexii?) and the Moto X Pure; was it enough to lure switchers?
Summer may be almost over, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty more opportunities to spend time outdoors. Since the changing seasons can bring unpredictable conditions, when you’re outside the Scosche boomBOTTLE+ Waterproof Wireless Speaker is a great sound solution! It’s ruggedized, waterproof, and it can fit in your bike’s bottle holder or your 4×4’s cup holder!
Google was quite busy today, announcing two new Nexus phones, previewing a new Pixel C tablet, revealing a new Chromecast and a Chromecast Audio, plus several software updates! All good stuff, so let’s jump right in with a quick rundown…try to keep your wallet closed until the end!
The one thing that you always wish you had with you when you don’t is a charge for your mobile device. Well now there’s a remedy to your problems.
I first saw LuminAID’s products on Shark Tank. I was impressed by the presentation, the product, and the ways it can be of real use in an emergency. I didn’t order one but was thrilled to get a review sample. I was sent the LuminAID PackLite 16. It’s “the new and improved version of our original LuminAID solar light!” From the company: “The new PackLite 16 has double the LEDs (2X the wattage), is made out of a thicker, more durable TPU (PVC-free) material, and has an additional flashing setting for emergencies. The PackLite 16 provides up to 16 hours…
If you were a fan of our review of the Cubesensors review, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a new model of the popular home sensors, called the Koto, launching today on Indiegogo! Koto is an updated and stylish way to help you sleep better, as well as keep your family healthy through monitoring your home environment. Created by CubeSensors, the Slovenia-based startup that brought you over 500 million environmental readings in over 50 countries worldwide, the Koto comes with three types of smart sensors. Koto Blink, the entry level sensor, helps make any room more comfortable by monitoring…
My office is business formal. Men wear suits and ties, and women must wear skirts, pantsuits, or similar attire. It’s actually easy to dress that way once you’re used to it, but the dilemma for me is always in how to haul my gear. I am looking at the first of a few potential solutions in the Moshi Urbana Mini!
Even though you’re currently looking at your smartphone or some device reading this article, you should point your phones upward tonight, and capture one of the most stunning sights in the sky tonight.
BlueLounge has done it again with the Aaden USB powered charger for charging rechargeable batteries from your laptop or other USB power source. It’s one of those simple accessories you don’t need but, once you have it, you’ll be happy you do. In other words, it’s typical Bluelounge. 🙂 And at just $19.95 it will make a great stocking stuffer.
The TAP by Armorz is an intelligent screen protector for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, and 6s Plus. The TAP was made to allow for one-handed use of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus by including two touch-sensitive buttons on the bottom of the TAP to access touchscreen buttons that might otherwise require a second hand.
My new iPhone 6S is amazing. It has the same great design as the previous generation but speed, 3D touch and an improved camera. All that adds up to a powerful smartphone. I wanted to protect my investment but didn’t want to hide the sleek design and good looks. That’s where the Speck Candyshell Clear iPhone 6S Case comes in.
I’ve got an Apple Watch, and from normal wear the stainless steel has a light patina of little scratches. I don’t worry about that, but I do sometimes worry about whacking my watch or breaking its crystal; I’m paranoid like that. If you’re worried that your lifestyle might be too active for your watch, then you need the LUNATIK EPIK.
You know the saying “the best things in life are free?” Well imagine if that was true about money itself. Well not only is it Friday but it’s your LUCKY DAY.
Lets face it, fall is officially here, and summer is behind us. But this doesn’t mean just because you’ll be indoors more often that you shouldn’t continue your quest for fitness. Now you can keep in shape, anywhere you go with the Daily Yoga app.
My son has a TARDIS nightlight, which I am pleased with because it sets him up well to be exposed to good science fiction early in life. I’m always looking for similar cool ideas for him, so I was very excited to take a look at 3D Cartoon LED lamps in the form of Ironman and Minions…perfect for my son!
If you’re a Netflix user who prefers to handle your subscriptions through your iTunes account, good news-Netflix is now allowing you to subscribe within the iOS app, instead of redirecting you to Netflix.com for subscription management. More importantly, Netflix announced with an “Orange is the New Black” promo clip!
I like the freedom a battery case can provide–no need to carry a separate power pack, and no need for connecting cables–but using one does add some extra weight and bulk to the already large-ish iPhone 6 Plus. Can 4300mAh and a lovely metallic blue cover make up for it? The PhoneSuit Elite Pro sure tries!
I used Google Wallet for one reason: it held my loyalty cards. Unfortunately, with the new Android Pay I can’t access my loyalty cards unless I have a compatible bank card added! Wallet functioned fine without a card added, and even if I add a bank card, if it’s not a supported card I can’t access anything in Android Pay.
