It’s too bad that Halloween has already passed by because I’ve found the spookiest, affordable novelty iPhone 7 Plus case I’ve yet seen — the hand-made 3D eyeball phone case by Chic Leader.
I’ve been a long-time fan of the Just Mobile TENC Auto-Heal Clear Case; it’s the case I kept on my iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus, because it was the closest thing I found to carrying my phone naked. While I liked that one of its properties was that the case wouldn’t show scratches, I never really had an opportunity…
As much as I hate to admit it, the holidays are fast approaching, and it will soon be time to figure out which gifts to give to our favorite friends and loved ones. For your consideration, I offer the new Huawei Fit. It’s not a full Android Wear smartwatch, but it is definitely smarter than the average fitness tracker.
We’ve got two TCL 4K Roku-enabled televisions in our house, and I feel like TCL is one of those brands that isn’t yet well-known, but they should be. TCL products are extremely well made, they work exactly as promised, and they are generally well priced.
Most of us spend an average of 8 hours in bed every day; that equals basically 1/3 of our lives, and that’s why it’s so important that the bed we sleep on and the sheets we sleep in are comfortable and conducive to a good night’s sleep. For the last week, I’ve been enjoying the Brooklinen Luxe Hardcore Sheet Bundle.
I’m terrible at estimating distances and dimensions, which is why I have to keep a measuring tape nearby when doing any reviews. InstruMMents, a company founded by the creators of Misfit Shine, is introducing 01 this morning; it is the world’s first dimensioning instrument. 01 captures, logs, and shares dimensions when it is rolled over straight or contoured objects.
If you love design, and you want a unique way to light your living space, then you should look at the nanoleaf Aurora. As they say, “it’s not light, it’s living paint.” The panel pieces snap together like LEGOs, so you can create a design you like and light your room beautifully.
Much as I hate to admit it, I have a tendency to allow myself to get stressed out. I first notice it in my shoulders, then it spreads to my head and, if left unchecked, results in a pounding headache. I didn’t have much hope that the Spire Activity and Mindfulness Tracker would make that big of a difference …
I ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus, and I went into it knowing that in time I would probably see more than a few scratches on my otherwise beautiful phone. The new Naked Case on Kickstarter uses the same tough film used to protect exotic sports cars to protect your iPhone from scratches. Check it out …
At some point in the mid-2000s, except for rare situations, I stopped getting prints made from my digital pictures. I have thousands upon thousands of pictures I’ve taken stored on my phone as well as in the cloud, but with the Epson Expression Premium XP-640 Small-in-One Printer, they are now on my walls, too.
Remember when the Rubik’s Cube took America by storm? In the early 80s, it was impossible to go anywhere without seeing someone twisting a colorful cube as they tried to match the colors back up on each side. Putao has introduced Cube-tastic!, an updated 3-D puzzle cube that takes the idea behind the Rubik’s cube to a whole new level.
It’s easy to forget that with so many smartwatches available, there are still plenty of people who simply want to wear a watch that looks good and tells the time. But finding that watch doesn’t mean you need to give up your geeky edge; the Citizen Eco-Drive Watch line manages to roll true greek-credibility into a beautiful not so “dumb-watch”.
I’ve reviewed several Jackery devices in the past; they have been excellently made, and I am still using them. Jackery has a Kickstarter campaign going on now for their most ambitious device yet — the Jackery Power Pro, a 578Wh Solar Ready Outdoor Generator.
I’ve been wearing a Misfit Ray, and while it’s one of the prettiest and useful fitness trackers I’ve worn, I still wear a watch because I’m old-fashioned and like to wear one. With the introduction of the Misfit Phase Hybrid Smartwatch, I can have a fashionable analog watch combined with the Misfit technology I’ve come to appreciate.
If you live in the state of California, and if you have a prescription for medical marijuana, there is a new product that you should pay attention to — the PAX Era Extract Vaporizer. when used with Bloom Farms extract pods, this on-demand vaporizer makes administering your prescription as simple as taking a puff.
I live in Texas, where huge pickups and SUVs are everywhere. Top of the line for either would have to be the GMC Denali, but you don’t have to be in a full-size Yukon or 4 door pickup to get the Denali package; you can also find it in the much more maneuverable, yet still roomy, 2017 GMC Acadia Denali.
The holidays are coming up rapidly, and it’s time to start working out a purchase plan. Why not kill two birds with one stone? Why not buy your loved ones great gifts that also benefit a good cause? With the new (RED) holiday products, you can.
One of the things most glass screen protectors for iPhone have in common is that they aren’t curved, so they don’t cover the edges properly; they always end up a few mm short of the phone’s rim. For the most part, this isn’t a big deal, but it can look and feel weird.
Do you use your laptop as your main computer, hooked to a monitor and keyboard when you’re working at your desk? Then you probably know it doesn’t take much before the fan starts whirring and your laptop starts to get hot. If that’s your experience, then you’ll want to take a look at the new SVALT High-Performance Cooling Dock.
Ali Yildirim, the genius behind Beyza Cases (named for his daughter Beyza), has started a new luxury company that blows away and then elevates anything I have ever seen offered for iPhones. Moodz Concept makes covetable and personalized custom, hand-crafted iPhone 6 and 7 cases that look and feel like nothing else available.
