Google has lots of ideas…sometimes more than they can actually implement so we have seen Glass come and go as well as a host of other wacky product ideas from the boys in Mountain View. Some of them have stuck around even when it didn’t seem like they should. Strangely, Chromebooks are getting a little …

Nomad ChargeKey Review

Ah, the life of a digital nomad. Making your way from coffee shop to bistro, setting up your office wherever you go. The only limitation…the endurance of your smart phone. No battery, no work.

Republic Gets Moto X

When I looked at Republic Wireless’ service this summer I liked the value but I was a bit hesitant about the phone. I mean the Motorola Defy was not going to be lust worthy by many people’s standards, and it had no 4G support so it had its limitations. Republic has changed that recently with …

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad mini Review

Unfortunately, there are too many compromises with this keyboard. There is no way to attach the keyboard to the back of the iPad. The lack of a way to hold the cover closed, the general plastic construction and the tab key being on the second layer of the keyboard mean that there are better choices out there.
