Neato’s robot vacuums seem to be a favorite in a lot of homes, mostly because they’re some of the few that have so many built-in smart integrations including the ability to work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. But starting today, Neato adds a voice function that makes it even easier to command your vac from your iPhone.
We are in a pandemic. I’ve spent the last week moving my synagogue into a virtual space and checking in on my seniors. Judie is working from home while babysitting grandkids so her daughter and son-in-law can continue to do their jobs. Carly is handling her day job remotely while building a home school program for her child. And what has Apple done? They’ve released a new, overpriced iPad. Really Apple? Are you that clueless?
The biggest upgrade you can make to your car stereo these days is adding Apple CarPlay or Android Auto functionality. Alpine’s ILX-W650 is a best-in-class in-dash digital multimedia receiver that is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in a shallow chassis with a 7″ capacitive touchscreen. Paired with Alpine’s KTA-450 amplifier, the value and features can’t be beaten.

Popular Smarthome brand Eve is announcing new products including their first-ever indoor camera made exclusively for Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video, as well as a few other surprises!
Catalyst is mostly known for its protective but stylish cases for smartphones, tablets and yes, even AirPods. So it’s no surprise at CES 2020 the brand introduces five case styles for the first and second generation of the AirPods, and three designs for the newer AirPods Pro.
Right in time for Hour of Code Week 2019, Mattel is launching a new educational dimension to one of this year’s hottest holiday toy launches, Hot Wheels id.

If you have AirPods or intend to get a pair, you should really invest in a case that will protect not only the pods themselves but the case that holds them from sustaining hairline scratches. There’s one case I’ve been using the past few weeks that have surprised me, and I think you should check out. Introducing the CarryOn by intelliARMOR, a hand-crafted leather case designed for the Apple AirPods. Available in three colors: black, brown and camel, each of…
If your wallet shuddered suddenly this week, it was probably busy tuning into Apple’s big fall announcements. If you missed it, or you’re on data overload, there are new iPhones, pricing for Apple TV+, a new iPad, a new Apple Watch, and Apple Arcade news!
The Activ5 was first announced way back at CES 2017 as the “tiny gym in your pocket.” While the slogan is fantastic, there’s only one question I really have — can it actually work?
Apple’s been working hard at giving users who want a quality MacBook better upgrades, tangible new features, and better specs with a more upfront product line; starting today the price furthers that mission by updating the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro.
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced the new iPad OS. Before I go too far, I want to caution you about loading this beta. If you use your iPad for anything mission critical, then it’s best to wait until the full release. With that said here are my thoughts on the biggest update to the iPad in years.
Choetech’s made a name for itself by making high quality products at an affordable price without compromising the integrity of the item you’re using it for. And if you’re looking for reliability, their latest Type-C products are worth adding to your checkout bin.
Bad news for the six people still holding out hope: AirPower is dead. Apple announced today that the iPhone/Watch/AirPod charging mat could not be made into a viable product. Also, they needed the manpower to get Apple Card up and running-those chamfered titanium edges don’t design themselves. If you were holding out and now need a wireless charging dock, Gear Diary has reviewed devices from Scosche, Satechi, TwelveSouth, Nomad, and many others. It may sting to know that you won’t…
Unless you live under a rock, chances are you heard about Apple’s keynote Event live from the Steve Jobs Theatre on Monday morning. There were a few things announced that we can certainly get excited about, but there were more than a few that left me scratching my head, asking “why?”
There’s a cliché phrase, “If at first, you don’t succeed, try again”. Apparently, that’s how Apple feels about publishing, because they’re convinced their prior explosive failure at eBooks was a one-off, and they’ve got a great new subscription plan in the works. I’m sure publishers will love … wait, giving a 50% cut to Apple? Does Tim Cook have a head injury?
I love Apple Pay. It’s hands down my preferred way of paying for things. Yes, it’s secure and all, but really, I just like not having to whip out my wallet. Since <checking my budget> approximately 80% of my spending is at Target or Wegman’s, my wallet can now go on vacation since Target now accepts Apple Pay!
At home, I use a MacBook Pro connected to two large monitors. At work, I have a 27” iMac. It is a fantastic computer, but I don’t like that the ports and connections are at the back. That makes it difficult to quickly connect and disconnect peripherals. That’s where the $89.99 Satechi Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub comes in.
Nomad makes excellent wares for Apple Products like Horween leather Apple Watch bands, cases, and their wireless chargers that are compatible with any Qi-Wireless charging devices. However, there were two specific things the brand was missing: A natural leather Apple Watch band for smaller wrists and a matching case to hold Airpods. Effective today, both are available for purchase.
