Nomad’s iPhone XS Max Cases are Made to Impress

When it comes to good quality leather cases for my iPhone, I don’t bother with any other company that’s not named Nomad. The company sent me over three of their cases for the new iPhone XS Max to review, and trust me, they beat even Apple’s own leather cases.

I’m always looking for a light pair of Bluetooth headphones that sound good and are comfortable to wear, so I was pleased when recently sent a pair of the Aiwa Arc-1 Bluetooth Headphones to try.

RoWrite Is Traditional Note-Taking for the Digital Age

My weeks are filled with meetings. In addition to various weekly meetings with my staff, with students becoming bar or bat mitzvah, and with my various boards, I have numerous meetings each week connected to upcoming weddings and funerals. The Royole RoWrite is a notepad for the digital age, and it is my new best “work-friend.” Reasonably priced, it works.


The Ventev Wireless Chargestand Is Fast and Flexible

We recently reviewed the Ventev wireless chargepad+. It’s a small, round disk covered with fabric that delivers 7.5W of wireless charging to Apple devices and 10W of power to compatible Samsung devices.

When it comes to wireless sport headphones, there are three essential features. First, the headphones need to stay in while running. Second, the headphones need to be water resistant. Third, they need to sound great. Jaybird knocks it out of the park with their new X4 wireless headphones. Retailing for $129.99, the X4 checks all of the boxes and more.


Snoppa Atom 3-Axis Gimbal Rocks Steady!

It amazes me at just how much technology has advanced the camera world. What used to involve carrying a shoulder-mounted equivalent of a TV studio camera now fits in the palm of your hand. Trouble is, handheld video suffers being handheld, and therefore is usually very shaky. Enter Snoppa and its new Atom three-axis gimbal.




Etymotic ER3SE/XR Earphones Take You and Your Music to New Heights

My first pair of good earphones were purchased from Etymotic. After three minutes listening to them I knew I could never go back to the cheap in-ear models I had previously used. I still have those earphones and was excited, years later, to check out Etymotic’s new ER3SE earphones. These are wired earphones for those who love their music.


Ventev Powercell 6010+ Backup Battery Gets the Job Done

Since getting my iPhone X, I’ve gone all in on wireless charging. I have wireless chargers around my house and at work. I even carry an external battery with wireless charging. Raina, however, still has a phone that needs traditional charging. That’s where the Ventev powercell 6010+ backup battery comes in; it is simple but it gets the job done.



Phiaton Releases The BOLT BT 700 Wireless Earphones

Phiaton Corporation today announced the BOLT BT 700 wireless earphones featuring armature drivers and a portable charging case that doubles as a wireless speaker on Kickstarter ($79/$139). I was lucky enough to get an early sample so let’s take…

Bad news: Apple’s promised wireless charging system is MIA and may never make its appearance. Good news: Nomad’s new Base Station Hub Edition is here and ready to charge your life. The Nomad Base Station has an MSRP of $99.95. It looks amazing, has dual 10W wireless charging, and it can charge up to four devices simultaneously.

Lume Cube Is the Best New Lighting Accessory for Cameras

I get home from work and there is a box on the front porch and inside the box is a little cube. The Lume Cube. What is the Lume Cube you ask? Honestly, I would almost call it the greatest little accessory for modern photography and videography.
