Sheltering in Place During a Pandemic – How We’ve Made It Work

Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.


Pitaka Air Omni 6-in-1 Charging Solution Is Something Special

It should be no surprise that Pitaka makes both Judie’s and my smartphone cases of choice. The company also makes great chargers and, as the title of this review says, their new Pitaka Air Omni 6-in-1 Charging Solution is something special. It’s currently available for backing on Kickstarter; I have an early version and love it.


Nomad Releases Updated Base Station Apple Watch Edition

Nomad makes some of the best wireless charging solutions available.

Jabra 75t True Wireless Earbuds Are the Current Champ of TWE

When Jabra entered the ‘true wireless earphone market’ a few years ago with their Elite Sport, I was immediately impressed. They fit reasonably well and sounded great. The Jabra 65t built on that first offering in significant ways, including comfort, sound, and much more. (Read our review.) Their latest offering, the Jabra 75t, takes things to an entirely new level.





Mophie’s Dual Wireless Charging Pad Is Fast and Flexible

The other day I reviewed mophie’s 3-in-1 charging pad. It’s ideal for someone who has an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod’s with a wireless charging case. I have an iPhone. I have an Apple Watch. But I don’t have AirPods. Mophie’s dual wireless charging pad isn’t specifically designed for AirPods so, for me, it is a better option.

The company sent me over their latest innovation, the Skyroam Solis X, which is proving to be even better than I expected.
