iPevo PadPillow Lite iPad stand review

The PadPillow Lite is similar in design and function to the original PadPillow, but downsized to a degree that makes it reasonably easy to stow in a computer backpack or messenger bag. Nevertheless, iPevo maintains the Lite model still works fine supporting older generation full-sized iPads, a point I wanted to check out in this review with my iPad 2. I’ve found that it does.

Review: Spec Ops: The Line dares you to cross it

Spec Ops: The Line is a Mac game that puts you in the boots of Walker, a Delta team leader on a mission to do some recon. Unfortunately for you the mission gets complicated quickly and you set off on a secondary mission to make contact with and rescue Colonel Konrad. And that’s where things go a bit pear shaped.

diffr3nt sleeve for MacBook Pro review

Once you open the shiny plastic shipping sleeve for the diffr3nt sleeve for MacBook, you have a not quite as shiny canvas sleeve. The outer shell is made of a fine weave canvas—a little texture but not too rough. The inside is a soft lining of sueded material so you don’t have to worry about any scuffs or scratches marring the finish of your device.

Rapoo T120P wireless mouse review

Rapoo makes several models of wireless mice, but today it’s all about the T120P. This particular model uses a USB receiver to accommodate the 5G wireless transmission. This keeps the mouse from the 2.4G wireless range to keep Bluetooth interference to a minimum. This uses one of USB ports, but a docking station or USB hub can fix that problem fairly quickly.

Review: Neptor NP065K dual port battery charger

Speedy, portable charging in a handy package. The Neptor NP065K dual port battery charger hardware is solid and almost foolproof. With a price of $49.99, it’s an investment, but if you need portable power this is a good option.

Review: Flash Magicstick charges your phone, lights up your life

It’s not a bizarre thought, when you consider it. Those situations when you most need battery backup for your iPhone, iPad or other mobile device could very well be when you need a flashlight, too; power goes out, car breaks down, lost on a hike, that kind of thing. And it’s that combination of power and illumination that makes the Powerocks Flash Magicstick such a useful device.

Review: Satechi 4-port USB 3.0 Premium Aluminum Hub

The Satechi 4-port USB 3.0 Premium Aluminum Hub is housed molded aluminum with a rubberized pad on the bottom to keep the sliding to a minimum. You get a USB connector to plug into your computer, a 9.5” cord (integrated) to give you some elbow room, and a nice housing with four USB 3.0 ports. Don’t panic yet; the ports will also handle USB 1.1 and 2.0.

Do you just as often find yourself without the necessary charging cables? uNu offers a handy solution to both problems their Aero Wireless Charging Battery Case and Mat, which allows you to place a mat where you’d need it, and leave the cables at home.

Review: eleMount CNC machined mount for iOS devices

The Kickstarter sensation of 2013, the eleMount is now shipping to supporters. A simple and elegant design to hold any device onto nearly any surface, it can be used to hold an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to be used in a car, displayed on a table, and even used with a standard camera mount. We managed to get one of the early shipments to try it out and see how it holds up to use.

Review: Coach Guitar teaches you guitar, not tablature

Coach Guitar for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch uses a teaching concept solely based on a visual method so users can learn how to play popular songs on their acoustic guitar without knowledge of either music theory or tablature. That would have been great for me forty-odd years ago, because I didn’t and still don’t know either.

CrossWay case review – basic protection and wallet functionality for iPhone 5/5s

As an iPhone 5/5s bumper case, the Crossway provides ample protection for the iPhone. It’s made of polycarbonate frame that serves as a bumper. At the same time, it uses a rubber mesh backing that serves as a wallet case. This rubber mesh stretches to accomodate cash or a credit card. But when not in use, the rubber mesh falls back flat.

Trident Aegis iPad Air case review

The last in the series of Trident Cases we are reviewing is the Aegis iPad Air case. Like its iPhone counterpart, the Trident Aegis iPad Air case is also slim and lightweight despite providing two-layers of protection—an inner-layer made of shock-absorbing silicone material and an outer-layer made of hardened polycarbonate.
