Henge Gravitas iPad and iPhone dock review

Tired of undocking your iOS device only to find that it hasn’t undocked and that you’ve got to stop everything and use two hands to pry the device from the dock? I’ve got just the dock for you. The Gravitas iPad and iPhone dock from Henge ($69) is colossal. Not in terms of it’s footprint on your desk, but it …

Cult of Mac writer: “If you’re like me, you hate OS X’s dock”

I recently read this on Cult of Mac’s website: If you’re like me, you hate OS X’s Dock. While a useful UI innovation on Apple’s part, the dock takes up a surprising amount of screen real estate on what, in the end, adds up to a superfluous amount of visual fluff. It was a piece covering a product called StatusDuck. …

Logitech Case [+] review: the last iPhone case you’ll ever need?

Fact: iPhones look and feel infinitely cooler without a cases. Fact: iPhones are too expensive for most people to just replace on a whim once broken. Conclusion: using a case for your iPhone is smart (if not slightly angering to Apple designer Jony Ive whose handy work you would be covering up). And if you have to use a case and …

Strides habit tracking app review: it works

We all want to be better people. There’s no question about that. But can an app really help make that happen? I’ve recently tested an app that can, at least incrementally, help people improve. It’s called Strides ($3.99), it’s a goal and habit tracker and it’s one of the top paid apps in the App Store. Since so many people …

Gtar: the best, and coolest, way to learn to play guitar (review)

The Gtar ($399) is one of those things I knew I had to have the moment I saw it. For those still in the dark, Gtar is , you guessed it, the guitar. I’ve always been interested in music. For awhile I was in a band back in high school where I played the drums. It was fun, but I’ve always …

Ztylus iPhone camera case and Revolver Lens Kit review

I dream of a day when my iPhone will be able to replace my DSLR. Yes, that day is probably many, many years off, but until then I’ve got some fun accessories I can play around with for better iPhone pics. One such item is the Ztylus iPhone camera case and accompanying revolver lens attachment ($99.95 for the combo). This …

Dark Sky: an iPhone weather app you’ll want to use (review)

I’m a sucker for a great weather app which is why I’m glad I downloaded Dark Sky ($4). It’s unlike any other weather app on my iPhone. In fact, the default screen looks nothing like what I’ve come to expect from weather apps, which I really like. Hyperlocal weather forecasts This is a hyperlocal app. This means that it uses …

Logitech Ultrathin for iPad Air review

It’s an absolute delight to be typing this review with the product I’m reviewing: the Logitech Ultrathin for iPad Air ($99). Is delight too strong of a word? Not even close. Let me start by saying that this Bluetooth keyboard is snappier and speedier than the actual Apple wireless keyboard when typing with my iPad. My Apple keyboards, when paired …

OK, Google: Try Harder to Kill the iPhone

As an Apple fan, I love former Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s new guide for iPhone users who want to switch to Android. I miss the days when fans owned an Apple product for it’s coolness, not because they thought the product would make them appear cool. I miss the days when Apple wasn’t mainstream. As counter-intuitive as it may sound, …

Appboy: Improving Apps for Everyone

When I use an app, I want the experience to be as close to perfect as possible. I can’t stand it when I download an app and must immediately give it the stanky boot. If an app doesn’t work as I think it should (or as advertised) it is a failure. Often times I want apps that fail to have …

I’m Using An iPhone on T-Mobile – Am I Crazy?

A couple of weeks ago I did something I thought I would never do: I switched to T-Mobile. In the past, I always thought of T-Mobile as an ugly duckling carrier. An also-ran. I felt sorry for people on “that pink network.” Now I’m a T-Mobile convert. Here’s what happened. I had an old iPhone and I was finally ready …

Phablets Are Stupid (The Smaller The Better)

Phablets are stupid. I don’t like them. If I had my way, “the next big thing” would be small. Well, smaller than a Galaxy Note, for sure, and honestly, smaller than the Galaxy S4. Really, it would be about the size of the current iPhone (5c and 5s at the time of writing). It’s pretty darn near the perfect screen …

For The iOS7 Haters…

A lot of people dislike iOS 7. They can’t stand it. They are passionate about hating it. Even rabid Apple fans. I don’t quite get it, though I am trying to understand where they are coming from. Personally, I love iOS 7. To me, the obvious reason almost any non-designer, regular user doesn’t like iOS 7 is because they are …

iPad Air Smart Case Review

The bottom line: The iPad Air Smart Case excels as a stylish, lightweight and high-quality protective enclosure. It fails a little bit at being a stand. Since I ordered my iPad Air and the corresponding smart case ($79) from Apple the day they were first available, I’d imagine I am one of the first to post a review. Normally, a …
