Seems like it took a long while, but companies are finally embracing USB Type-C by integrating it in all of their products (balls in your court now, Apple). However, Satechi, a favorite here at Gear Diary announces two silver and sleek Type-C chargers that you’re going to want in your bag, at home, or wherever you charge up devices.
Polaroid has fully embraced instant photography at CES 2019 by announcing a host of different cameras, film, 3D printers and even televisions at their Polaroid booth. One that truly intrigued us was the Mint Camera and Pocket Printer.
Toronto-based Nanoleaf, who is best known for their popular triangular-shaped Nanoleaf Light Panels, has wowed onlookers at CES 2019 in Las Vegas with their new product, Nanoleaf Canvas. Canvas is made out of edge-to-edge light squares that are touch sensitive, react to music and sound, and integrate with Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa.

The Scosche MagicGrip Charge Qi-Mount promises to put a different spin on charging your device on the go.
Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei, but like many younger siblings, they’re ready to escape Huawei’s shadow. The upcoming Honor View20 is a jaw-dropping phone, one that has the potential to not only overshadow their big siblings but make some consumers say “Apple who?”
We want to believe we are an evolved society, but the reality is that evolution is always incremental, not revolutionary. We can accept sexuality, but only to a point, and apparently, CTA, the ruling body behind CES, thinks women’s self-pleasure crosses that line.
Shure’s new MV88+ Video Kit is an all-in-one on-the-go video system. At $249, it includes a digital stereo condenser microphone, a Manfrotto PIXI tripod, phone clamp, mount, Lightning and USB-C cables. Just plug it into your iPhone or iPad, and you have a mobile studio no matter where your travels might take you.
Greg introduced me to Master & Dynamic at CES a few years ago. The small company produces high-end headphones, and they have received critical acclaim not only from us but from others who truly value their music. Now, Master & Dynamic has released the MW07 true wireless earphones, and we think they look amazing.
CES may be the home for various gadgets, drones, foldable phones, and roll-up televisions, but if you’re a pet owner, there are plenty of items aimed at you and your four-legged friend as well. Wagz has three new items, the Explore Smart Collar, the Go-Smart Door, and Roam’s Smart Shield.
Anker has just introduced the Roav Bolt, yet another of their cleverly crafted mobile accessories. The Roav Bolt is essentially a multipurpose car charger that is designed to bring Google’s Voice Assistant directly to your car, so you’ll no longer have to say “Hey Google” to your smartphone while driving.
I’ve been a fan of TIDAL since Jay-Z acquired it in March of 2015. As the streaming service grew into a global music and entertaining platform, one thing many people wanted was the ability to capture studio-quality sound for Android. Starting today that is a reality.
Samson just revealed their new Samson Satellite USB/iOS Broadcast Microphone. A small but powerful microphone, it pulls off a trick that far too few microphones can; it works just as well with iOS devices as it does with computers. Samson describes it as “versatile.” I describe it as “awesome” and hope to give it a try when it is released.
Audeze may not be a household name, but they are, in fact, a global leader in premium audio. Their iSINE headphones have received positive reviews and, as of today, are now available in a new Bluetooth version. Also, for those who already own iSINE headphones, their new CIPHER Bluetooth module will let Audeze fans cut the cord too!
Scosche is much more than their car accessories. If you’ve been following their CES announcements this week, you know that Scosche has a lot in store for 2019, but you might be really intrigued by how they plan on keeping your home device charging organized with the Scosche BaseLynx Modular Charging System.
STM brands consistently put out bags and accessories that look good, work hard, and protect your devices daily. Their sibling company, Element Cases, does the same for your phones. Both their offerings at CES expand on that, bringing new accessories to help your everyday tech work even more efficiently for you!
Speakers and headphones with integrated smart assistants have become all the rage. The House of Marley is jumping into the fray but are doing so with a twist.

Ring is popular for their video doorbells and home security systems, but for those of us who live in homes without doorbells, you may have felt a bit left out. That’s no longer the case, thanks to the new Ring Door View Cam.
This week at CES Eve Systems, popular for their smart home accessories, released their Eve Energy Strip — a triple outlet for your home with HomeKit integration, power consumption monitoring, and much more.
I’ve long been a fan of V-MODA’s headphones. Whether it is their on-ear, over-the-ear, wired or wireless headphones, I’ve reviewed them all and have always been impressed. Their new V-MODA BassFit wireless headphones are a departure from previous offerings, but they’re all V-MODA! At just $130, the BassFit headphones are a great value offering superb sound and a great fit.
There are a few questions that I think should be asked anytime someone tries to sell you a fancy, smartened, or “healthier” version of an existing product. Dr. Scarf is offering “Anion emitting heated scarves”. How do they match up against my deeply skeptical criteria?
