Vaja Cases Libretto for iPad Mini Review

Excellence is its own reward. At least, that was what my father used to say to me when he did not think that I had done a job that met his standards. He was a man that could express paragraphs of disdain by pushing his glasses up on the bridge of his nose. Of course, …

Mapi Cases Soli iPad Mini Case Review

I had not heard of Mapi Cases until I made their acquaintance at the CES show last month. They make a range of upscale cases and covers for iDevices and high-end smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy and Note. The cases are hand crafted in Istanbul (not Constantinople) from real cow. That’s right, they are unapologetically …

IK Multimedia iRig Blueboard

I like it when a product shows up at NAMM and at CES. It is sort of like a mullet…business in the front and party in the back. OK, it is not anything like that. But if a company has the chutzpah to show a product at both shows…it had better be pretty cool. The …

Oberon iPad Case Review

There seems to be a certain level of synchronicity in the discovery of new things. If I stumble on something amazing that I have never seen before, I often find it staring me in the face mere hours later. Something similar happened to me with Oberon Designs, a California based company that practices artisan design …

FAVI Bluetooth Mini Keyboard Review

Screen Shot 2012-12-20 at 9.33.01 PM

Perusing the FAVI website yields what you would expect from an innovative entertainment company. Projectors, screens, televisions and a clever little HDMI widget called the SmartStick which is aimed squarely at giving Apple TV and Roku heartburn. But in a very Sesame Street moment (“One of these things is not like the other…come on, sing …

CloudOn for iPhone

I have used CloudOn on my iPad for awhile and it has saved my bacon at least twice. Because the iOS versions of Office applications are occasionally limited in their limitation of features I have found CloudOn to be PARTICULARLY helpful when dealing with complex spreadsheet files. Actually, I have wanted to kill myself more …

Kickstarter Fun

20121218-085204.jpg

My buddies over at Runnur are launching a new product on Kickstarter. The iPad Messenger is an interesting concept and it comes equipped with a link to connect it to their Runnur tech bandolier, which Restless Tech reviewed here. I love the intimacy of Kickstarter and how it puts developers and inventors directly in touch …

Tick, tick, tick… (gift guide!)

The season of getting giving is heating up at an alarming rate. There are 18 days until Christmas which probably means that I should start shopping. Santa is consulting his naughty list…as am I! Luckily, Santa has gone electronic and I hired a well known hacker to get my info taken off of his naughty …

Portenzo Black Friday!

I just got my iPad Mini and it is happily nestled in a new Portenzo Wingtip case. Yes, I will have a review soon! I opted for the stylus compartment on this case and you may want to as well. In fact, Portenzo has a silly deal planned for Black Friday… This Friday at 12:01 …

iPad Mini Indy From Waterfield

There is something intrinsically sexy about all of WaterField’s products. There is something just a little bit more so when it comes to their Indy shoulder bag. A little less rough and tumble and the Indy would be murselike indeed, but it has that certain level of refined testosterone and utility that makes me understand …
