Micro-Windmills could mean the end of taking your phone charger with you everywhere you go

From GadgeTell Mobile phone companies are constantly developing smartphone batteries that last longer and charge quicker. It has seemed like this battery struggle would continue forever because consumers are not satisfied as long as their battery noticeably dwindles. Personally, if my iPhone isn’t at 100%, I’m not at 100%. Anders (That’s my phone’s name. It’s not weird.) and I are one. Read the full post on GadgeTell »

Cricket Unveils Waterproof $140 Kyocera Hydro Plus Android Smartphone

From GadgeTell Japan-headquartered electronics manufacturer Kyocera may still have a long way to go until breaking into the mainstream Western mobile device market, but the OEM is slowly and steadily making a name for itself in the stateside rugged niche. Read the full post on GadgeTell »

JUMP Cable Leaps Ahead of Typical Battery Packs

The secret booth that only the lucky found at CES 2014

From GadgeTell CES is an absolute beast to chew through, especially if you're dedicated to get up close and see as much as you can before the week is over. It's not just that there are a bunch (i.e. thousands) of booths, but the small ones tend to be especially easy to miss. Read the full post on GadgeTell »

Intensify Pro for OS X review

From AppleTell Aptly named, Intensify is designed to help you bring out the details in your photos, whether it's recovering landscape details lost to haze or just making an otherwise drab cityscape pop. Unlike some programs of the HDR editing variety, however, Intensify's adjustments are natural looking and can be infinitely altered through a powerful combination of sliders and masking.

Hands-on with the 13″ MacBook Air, one month in

From AppleTell You can't really evaluate a workhorse computer until it's been used for a while in your work environment, but early days impressions are mostly positive. It's amazingly slim, but not much different footprint-wise than the old MacBook. I had been curious about how it would perform and feel in tasks and venues that have been more and more shunted to the iPad. My verdict is that this 13-inch MacBook Air really isn't an iPad substitute, but at $1,099 represents the most laptop for the money Apple has ever offered. Read the full post on AppleTell »

Apple releases iTunes update with Wish List feature and other improvements

From AppleTell Apple has released a new version of iTunes with a new Wish List feature, support for Arabic and Hebrew, the ability to switch from English and other language defaults, and more, including some minor stability improvements. The new iTunes arrives as version 11.1.4, so it's clear that it isn't a major update, but it does leaves room for Apple to focus on bigger things for a possible iTunes 11.2 and beyond.

Esoterism Moat-5 aluminum bumper for iPhone 5/5s review

From AppleTell Esoterism's Moat-5 aluminum bumper for iPhone 5/5s is made with same fine craftsmanship and attention to detail as their more expensive Embrace-5. The price difference between the two starts at $20, depending upon the model chosen, and that's $20 worth spending. Although the Moat-5 is a good option versus most Esoterism competitors, it gets two design elements completely wrong that the Embrace-5 got completely right. Read the full post on AppleTell »
