There are plenty of smart home products out on the market, but none quite as unique as the August Smart Lock. August sent over the popular smart home product that promises the user the ability to control access from anywhere, all without changing the look or lock on the outside of your door. So let’s get into it.
Jabra is an audio company that is known for their high-performance premium headphones. And a lot is the same with their Jabra Elite Sport earbuds, a competitor in the completely wireless headphone market looking to take down Apple’s Airpods. We had an opportunity to check them out, so let’s see if they can compete with the Dash and Airpods.
The smartphone industry is extremely competitive, and manufacturers know it’s necessary to continually release devices with the latest and greatest features. A while ago, Samsung caused a stir among tech enthusiasts with “Project Valley,” the code name for an initiative dedicated to developing foldable phones.
Fibaro, a leading global manufacturer of wireless home automation devices has announced three new products that will be fully compatible with Apple’s popular HomeKit.
Having an Apple Watch is quite the struggle when you’re on the go all day, only to look down at your battery midday and it’s already low. It’s almost as bad as having a low phone battery, but what if I told you there’s a product that could eliminate low batteries on both simultaneously?
After months of anticipation, Super Mario Run is set to release today on Apple’s App Store. The release of this infinite runner-style game set in the Super Mario Brothers universe is a departure from Nintendo’s standard procedure of developing content exclusively for Nintendo hardware. Nintendo’s new mobile game will be free to try but costs $9.99 for the full version.
Elgato sent over their latest product for Apple’s HomeKit platform, which just happens to be the first of it’s kind, the Eve Motion. So how does it fare compared to other products by the popular brand?
Quick, what’s the most interesting innovation to go mainstream this year? You can make an argument for a number of ideas, but it’s pretty clear from the ad blitz that home automation, especially from Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home, are at the forefront of ideas that have gone from tech-y to everyday. Surprisingly, Apple appears to be letting that business slide right by them, which is an ominous sign for a so-called innovator.
After I finally received my iPhone 7 Plus, I had to come to terms with the fact if I wasn’t going to go completely wireless to listen to music, I’d have to find a pair of Lightning headphones. And just like that, JBL’s Reflect Aware headphones arrived to review (thanks, Judie). Now the question is … are they worth it?
If you have an Apple Watch, then you might be a huge fan of their silicone wrist straps that come included with the popular smartwatch. But what if you wanted something a little bit nicer but with a similar feel? Well, you might be in luck.
Now that you have that new iPhone 7, you probably need a case for it right? Sounds like you need to check out Moshi’s newest line of cases for Apple’s latest flagship device.
As has become tradition, Apple released their yearly iPhone update this September. After two years with my iPhone 6 Plus, I decided to take the plunge and update to the iPhone 7 Plus. This year, Apple added water resistance, a solid-state home button, telephoto camera, A10 Fusion chip, stereo speakers, and more. Read on for my first impressions.
When the Apple Watch Series 2 went up for pre-sale at midnight PST on September 9th, the lead-times quickly slipped from September 16th to a range of the 28th – 30th. All within one hour of being available to pre-order. That is what I got with my pre-order at 3:45AM EST. However, when Best Buy put up their pre-order availability they kept it set for September 16th throughout the day on September 9th – so I pre-ordered from Best Buy and canceled my Apple order. Pre-orders remained as ‘processing’ with an expected 9/16 release date until the night of September…
What if you need a new Aux Cable for your vehicle now that you have plans of getting the iPhone 7? SCOSCHE has your back!

Scosche has announced that their Strikeline Cable will be available in the fourth quarter of this year for $39.99. The three foot long cable will instantly connect to your iPhone 7 and iPhone…
Today has been a GREAT day for Apple, and an even greater day for quality third-party accessory makers like Moshi who have announced their new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus accessory collection for Apple’s latest flagship. Moshi has officially launched nine cases and three screen protectors that are tailor made for the latest and greatest iPhone 7, including some popular favorites we here at GearDiary have reviewed, including their best sellers, the Armour metal case, the Overture wallet case, and the leatherette “Napa” case.

Apple’s September event is an annual ritual that many of us look forward to each fall. We expect to see new iPhones, a new Apple Watch and, hopefully, a surprise. And, if rumors are true, we will see just how much Apple has changed in recent years, but the evidence will not be Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack.
As a user of the iPhone 6 Plus the past two years, I came to the conclusion I’m well due for an upgrade on my Apple Smartphone, and if you have been stuck using the same iPhone since September 2014’s models, you might want to consider upgrading to the iPhone 7. Here’s why. Over the course of the last 24 months, the iPhone 6 Plus has been not only my daily driver but the best iPhone I’ve honestly had since the iPhone 4s, my first ever iPhone. Typically not a fan of “S” model iPhones, I told myself I would never…
Did you get an email from Amazon telling you that you have credit from the Apple eBook Antitrust Settlement? I just got mine, and it was a doozy …
Apple held their Worldwide Developer Conference today. The public portion of the event was the keynote which clocked in at almost 2 hours and featured a top-down review of the highlights expect in what Apple identified as their four foundational platforms – watchOS, tvOS, OS X (later rebranded as macOS) and iOS.
Since the Apple Watch has been updated to include Nightstand Mode, there are many new options for charging the watch overnight. I recently was able to review the HoverDock by Just Mobile which retails for $34.95. Basically, it is a minimalist way to charge the Apple Watch while using it in Nightstand Mode. Let’s take a look.
In a day where it seems that smartphones are only getting larger, the iPhone SE is a bit of fresh air. Sure it is nearly identical to the iPhone 5/5S – actually, externally it is identical – but it is a tried-and-true form factor that just works.
