The Playbulb Color Is A Smart Light Bulb With A Bluetooth Speaker (Review)

Out of all the home automation devices on the market, I would say smart lighting is the most popular category, and for good reason. It’s relatively affordable, you can expand at your own pace, it saves money, and it’s super cool. Most smart lights allow you to control the brightness from your phone, while others allow you to control your lights away from home, and change the color, completely changing...

Nest Learning Thermostat: An iOS User’s Perspective (Review)

Along with Philips Hue, I’d say that the Nest is one of the most recognized names in the smart home field. Founded by Tony Fadell in 2010, Nest introduced the Nest Thermostat just a year later in 2011. Tony Fadell had previously done work for Apple, helping with the iPod. The Nest Thermostat that he created clearly has been inspired by Apple, with its beautiful and simplistic design, and the rotating...

Lapa: A Worthy Tile Competitor? (Review)

In our review with the Tile Mate and Tile Slim, we loved features such as its simplicity, small size, and overall usefulness. Our only real gripe with it was the lack of a replaceable battery. While this does have some advantages, replacing a Tile every year can get pricey and add up quite quickly. Lapa, a new competitor in the area, attempts to solve some of Tile’s shortcomings. Does it do a good...

The UE BOOM 2 Is A Bluetooth Speaker With Great Sound At A Great Price (Review)

Back in October of last year, I was able to review the awesome UE MEGABOOM speaker. Some of the features I loved was it’s simple and useful design, great sound quality, and cool features such as the ability to pair up with other UE speakers. While we loved the UE MEGABOOM, at $300, it can be a pricey buy for some consumers. If you want the MEGABOOM, but can’t swallow the price, the UE BOOM 2 is definitely...

Newton Mail App For Mac And iOS – Review

In my search for the perfect mail app that I could use across all my Apple devices I have tried and tested a bunch of options. Many options came and went however the one that always stayed was Apple’s stock Mail app on macOS and iOS. While there’s nothing about the Mail application that makes it special the fact that it just works was enough to keep it set as my default mail app. Even though...

Susan Kare’s Print And Book Set Is A Great Gift For Any Retro Mac Lover (Review)

If you are an Apple fan, then you are most likely familiar with the work of Susan Kare. She is responsible for virtually all of the icons used on the original Macintosh, and arguably created some of the most iconic designs of the late 20th century. I myself love the design of these icons; even though the palette was limited to just two colors and there wasn’t much space to work with, Susan Kare managed...

More recently, Nomad has released a Leather Battery Wallet that seems to have replaced it’s original battery wallet. It also comes in two different styles: Slim and Bi-fold. They both include a 2400mAh battery, which is capable of completely charging...

JUUK Revo Band Turns Your Apple Watch Into A Beautiful Timepiece

While the Apple Watch is great as a fitness tracking device, with a quick swap of a band, it can become a very beautiful timepiece. Apple has some very elegant watch bands, mainly the Stainless Steel Link Bracelet. Unfortunately, the Stainless Steel Link Bracelet is very expensive, costing over $500. JUUK (pronounced “Juke”, as in “Jukebox”) is a company which prides itself in making quality Apple...
