Kodiak packs waterproof power in 3 capacities for everyone

When gadgets come out of their bag or protective pockets, there’s an element of danger involved. But it varies.

TechnologyTell Review: Huawei Ascend Mate2 smartphone

Huawei makes smartphones, but you might now know it unless you’ve lived outside the U.S. for awhile. Or unless you stay on top of all things mobile and tech.

Min bulk, max protection – Rhino Shield case for iPhone 6

#bendgate aside, the iPhone 6 and 6+ are just as susceptible to drop damage as any other large-screen smartphone out there. No matter how careful you plan to be, you won’t escape that occasional drop. Manufacturers make these latest smartphones so slim, sleek, and light that it seems almost a crime to encase them at all. But unless you don’t mind damaged tech or have an open-budget for replacement, protection is necessary.

In the latest business strategy, Symantec plans to split in two

TechnologyTell Review: V-Moda Faders VIP Tuned Metal Earplugs

Although I don’t get to see musicians live that often, I make it a point to go when I can. It’s an indulgence that everyone should do a few times a year, since music is so much more powerful and exciting that way.

Get powerful projection with the latest AAXA M4 LED Micro projector

One of the great things about this mobile revolution is that there’s always something new and/or improved coming out.

Sit much? Let Darma, world’s first inactivity tracker, coach you

Health is both big news and big business these days. It probably always has been, if you consider the decades of infomercials peddling the latest iteration of fad exercise equipment and/or diet pills. But that’s not what I’m talking about. We have mobile devices and live mobile lives, therefore fitness trackers and/or apps mean money and data collection for companies. Consumers are likely more willing to be motivated through such technology than a clunky piece of exercise equipment in a room.

When can you expect the Galaxy Note 4? Samsung has a map
