When Raina and I were dating, I bought her a new iPad to replace the aging one she was using. For years she used it with a keyboard case. When she got a new iPad a few months ago, she needed a new keyboard case. That case is the Brydge 10.2 MAX+ Wireless Keyboard Case with Trackpad; it’s impressive.
I used to think that if we had a winter power outage lasting a week or more, Kev and I would be adequately prepared. We’d have plenty of drinking water on hand, piles of cut wood for the fireplace, our food would be safe (because, winter), and portable battery packs would power our electronics. Earlier this year, we got to find out just how unprepared we actually were when Texas got slammed with one winter storm after another, causing a massive power crisis. What would have made a huge difference for us during this disaster? The Anker PowerHouse II 800.
When Apple removed the 3.5mm headphone jack from their mobile devices, we saw explosive growth in the wireless headphone market. Sadly, it was also another step toward prioritizing convenience over audio quality. As we have seen, some wireless headphones deliver exceptional sound but, there are times when you want the BEST sound. That’s where the Periodic Audio Rhodium DAC comes in.
The WaterField Hip Sling Bag Collection is yet another product designed based upon input from customers. This “community-designed” collection is perfect now that the summer heat has arrived. Available in two sizes, it can be used as either a hip bag or as a sling bag. I don’t see using it as a hip bag (AKA fanny pack), but I do love a good sling.
Leave it to Apple to release a $29 tracker accessory with no native way to affix it to the item you want to track. For that, you need to spend at least $29 more on Apple’s AirTag Loop. And while the Loop holds the AirTag, it does nothing to protect it. Thankfully, there is now a line of Nomad AirTag Accessories.
For over a year, my office has been here at home. Now, though, I’m preparing to return to the office part-time in the next few weeks. Many days that means carrying MacBook and an iPad. Since each serves a different purpose, thankfully, the new WaterField Double-Take iPad + MacBook Sleeve is the perfect solution!
My 11″ iPad Pro was a fantastic tablet right out of the box. The Brydge Pro+ Wireless Keyboard with Trackpad I reviewed made it even better. Now, the new Brydge 10.2 MAX+ is ready to do the same thing for the less expensive 7th and 8th Generation iPads. Available for preorder, the $129.99 accessory arrives the week of April 12.
Greg recently posted news about the new Master & Dynamic MW08 ANC true wireless earbuds. I’ve been using a pair for the last two weeks, and I’m more than a bit impressed. In fact, I am happy to report that I have a new favorite pair of wireless earbuds. They are comfortable, offer excellent hybrid noise cancellation, and sound fantastic.
The iPad Pro is a remarkable tablet that has become an indispensable productivity and content creation device for many of us. And while it is amazing, the right accessory makes it even better. The new Kensington StudioDock is one such accessory. It holds your iPad, charges all your devices, and connects your peripherals. At under $400, the StudioDock adds ports and other functionality that takes the iPad to new heights.
The iPad is great on its own but becomes exponentially better when paired with the “right” accessories, and the new Twelve South HoverBar Duo is one such accessory. Much more than a simple tablet stand, this smartphone/tablet holder works with a variety of devices, is future-proof, and holds your device in the perfect position for your work or viewing.
Need a helping hand with your iPad? Whether you’re looking for a way to position your iPad properly so that you don’t have twenty chins during video calls, or a place to keep your iPad out of the fray while cooking from a recipe on it, or a holder for your iPad so you can use it as a secondary display in your office, the Twelve South HoverBar Duo for iPad looks like a handy all-in-one solution.
Pulling out a stick stylus is rather plebeian, right? I mean, pretty much anyone can get one of those. If you want to appear like you’ve got everything under control and are living large — even if only to those in your latest Zoom call — obviously, you need to put the $250 Adonit Prime Stylus on your credit card.
For Christmas, I bought myself the new iPad Air 4 to replace my aging 2017 iPad. With its new form factor, I needed some new accessories, including something to carry it in. I searched on YouTube, and I’ve found my favorite one so far — the Tomtoc Padfolio Case.
Anker is one of those brands that, even if you don’t think they make it, I can almost guarantee that they do. So when I heard that they’d be at CES this year with a host of never before seen products, my interest was already piqued. So exactly what does the brand have in store for 2021? Read on!
Designed for the modern household that has way more than two devices, the Satechi Dock5 is a multi-device charging station that can make our digital lives a bit more convenient.
If you live in Texas, as I do, you now have access to a new form of device insurance called Traverse. Underwritten by Travelers Indemnity, Traverse offers a way to insure your most important devices for as little as $1 a month.
Between the pandemic and the election, it’s been an insane year. Now that we have several vaccines on the way and the election results have been declared, we can all look forward to seeing what Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are coming. We’ve put together a few of our favorite deals from some brands you know — and a few you should consider — that you can shop, all from the safety of your home!
This Holiday Season will be unlike any we have previously experienced, and gift-giving will be too. After all, people feel the financial pinch and, many of us are spending more time in our homes than ever. Here are some of the items that might make meaningful and practical gifts this year. You might see something for you, too!
If you have an iPad Pro and don’t have an Apple Pencil, you are missing out since it adds tremendous functionality to the tablet. But the Apple Pencil is $129 and is “just” a pencil/stylus. The Adonit Note-M, which the company describes as the “Redefinition of the input device,” is under $80 and doubles as a mouse; it’s impressive.
Nomad has distinguished itself as a leader in mobile device accessories by using premium materials and top-notch craftsmanship. One of those premium materials is the Horween leather used in their cases, watch bands, and other offerings. Their new Nomad Rugged Case for iPad Pro features Horween leather, and the result is as gorgeous as it is protective.
If you’ve paid attention to any of the leaks regarding Apple’s iPhone 12, you’ll notice that one of the essential items the brand is slated not to include is a power brick to charge your new phone! Luckily, the AUKEY Omnia Nano 20W PD Charger is available and affordable ahead of the latest iPhone launch.
