How to Fix Up and Refurbish an Old Mac, DIY-Style

Do you have an old MacBook or iMac that just isn’t running as well as it used to? So do I. It’s a 27-inch iMac from 2009. It sports a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of DDR3 RAM. It’s been a great machine for me over the years, but these days […]

Why The Apple Watch Will Be A Hit

When I first heard about the Apple Watch—the actual thing, not just the rumors—my initial reaction was along the lines of, “Wow, that’s cool but I don’t know if I need one.” From that moment on, began to wonder if Apple might be making a really cool product that nobody would end up buying. I mean think […]

I’m on a mission to find and test the best looking iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases, and then pick a winner. I love the design of the iPhone 6 and I think it’s a necessary shame to have to cover it up. So far I’ve taken a look at Incipio’s NGP case. Today I’m […]

The Best Looking iPhone 6 Cases Part 1: Incipio NGP

From the moment I knew I’d be buying an iPhone 6 I was thinking about what case I’d want to use. Yes, I hate to cover up such a beautiful work of art, but I’d much rather have a whole work of art than a broken one. Let’s face it: the iPhone 6 is a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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. […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
