TechnologyTell Review: Intocircuit Power Castle Battery

Even though external battery packs are nothing new these days, I still get excited over them. Especially when they feature something new or slightly different. Yeah, you can call me lame, but with all the energy I use up during the day, external battery packs are completely necessary.

Transform this 3-in-1 bag to meet all gadget carrying needs

I like to streamline my gear as much as the next minimalist, but there is a benefit to owning multiples of certain products. Power/data cables for mobile devices? You never want to run out of those. Speakers? Yeah, it’s cool to have a personal, portable one as well as a big, room-rocking unit. Bags? Absolutely.

Upgrade iPhone speaker output, battery life with PERI Duo

If smartphone built-in speakers were totally awesome, no one would think much about enhancing their music with separate audio output. The reality is that the tiny, built-in speakers are only great for basic sound. You can’t expect the hardware to develop much depth for music and entertainment.

Come January, T-Mobile will roll unused high-speed data

When it comes to mobile carriers shaking things up, you have to hand it to T-Mobile and its CEO, John Legere. Over the past year or so, T-Mobile has ditched conventional phone contracts, let users upgrade smartphones faster, and provided free data roaming and text messaging (internationally).

TechnologyTell Review: Clipless magnetic mount

Right now, wearables are a primary target for manufacturers. Everyone wants to take up permanent real-estate on your body, be it wrist, neck, head, or what have you. Smartwatches and fitness trackers are at the top of the list. If you don’t need an additional piece of tech, yet want a way to mount your existing smartphone/device, there aren’t too many options.

CHIPS headphones max music for extreme outdoor adventure

If you take a moment to think about it, headphones meant for physical activity are still kind of limiting. Sure, most of them connect wirelessly via Bluetooth and some may even be sweat-proof too. But these ones are really meant for your basic, “tame” routines of jogging/running, cycling, or sometimes swimming.

TechnologyTell Review: Woojer wearable “woofer”

One of my favorite, most awesome things to feel is the vibrations that come from deep, resonating bass. The bigger the better. Even your standard floor-standing subwoofer is good enough to thunder out sound with that kind of power. You just need the right placement and volume, of course.

Wearable data can now be used for or against you in court

Although it shouldn’t come as a surprise when you think about it, data collected from wearables is now being regarded as potential evidence in a court of law. Given the nature of litigious societies, one should expect anything and everything to be used to win over a case. But now the guessing is over, since it has happened as a first-of-its-kind.

TechnologyTell Review: Doppler Labs DUBS acoustic filters

I love music and I love it loud. There’s something about having speakers blast out tracks at high levels that amps the excitement. However, not everyone agrees. The kids and dogs easily consider loud music excessive to their hearing, which is why I play my stuff at moderate levels when at home.

Pre-Order HAVOC water resistant battery case for iPhone 6

You’ve owned a brand-new iPhone 6 and have survived #bendgate, #crescentgate, and what have you. Either your dextrous hands and/or protective case have served you well. So now it’s time to get crazy and wild on some adventure outside of your stuffy home or boring cubicle.

Deal Alert: Get 90% off Spotify premium subscription

“Mobile audio streaming” could be thought of as this century’s “sliced bread.” So the next time you hear someone spouting off that old idiom, you can correct them. Say, “no, you mean that it’s the best thing since mobile audio streaming. Now get that one foot out of a grave. You’re welcome.”
