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...

Wireless charging seems to be the standard on more and more flagship phones. Sadly, iPhones still do not support wireless charging. This has been a long requested feature that has existed for many years. While the next iPhone is rumoured to support wireless charging, if you want to get into the tech now,...

Nomad’s Leather Wallet Is Gorgeous With A Built-In Battery

You might remember my colleague reviewing the Nomad Wallet some time ago. In his review, he praised it for it’s minimalistic design and great functionality. 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...

Moko’s Sport Watch Bands Give You Apple’s Look For A Fraction Of The Price

Once I first saw the Apple Watch get announced, I was excited. I loved the variety of colored sport bands, and how you could change them on a whim for any occasion. It was then followed by disappointed when I learned that each band would cost $50 each. While I loved the idea, I just couldn’t justify spending $100 on just two sport bands. Fortunately, third-party manufactures came to the rescue for us...

Tile Mate And Tile Slim Make Losing Your Items A Thing Of The Past

As a general rule, I keep pretty good track of my stuff. I wear a jacket for most of the year, so I just keep my wallet and keys in my coat pocket and call it a day. I find when I’m on vacation, however, that I am a lot less organized, and as a result, lost my things fairly regularly. After reviewing the Tile Mate and Tile Slim, I wish I owned them while I went on last vacation. Tile Mate is Tile’s...

The UE MEGABOOM Is A Great Wireless Speaker With Some Clever Tricks (Review)

The MEGABOOM, it’s packaging, and the power adapter. With the release of the iPhone 7, there has been more and more releases and announcements of wireless earphones. While wireless earphones are fairly new in the market, wireless speakers have been around for much longer. Because they have, this has given speaker manufactures more time to perfect their products. Logitech’s UE MEGABOOM is one...

UAG’s Rugged MAGMA Case For iPhone 6s Is The Best Looking Heavy Duty Case We Could Find

When it comes to the physical appearance of things that I own and use I tend to be very picky. For the most part I try to keep things in their original form, rather than making alterations to the original design. Same is true for my iPhone and other gadgets. Despite the fact that the iPhone is very prone scratches and accidental drops I like to use it without a protective case. This is something I...

The HiRise 2 is a great refinement to an incredible product (Review)

As you may recall, last month I had the pleasure of reviewing the excellent HiRise Deluxe made by TwelveSouth. Two of my favourite features were it’s design, and compatibility, both with devices and cases. Following the success of the HiRise Deluxe, TwelveSouth has released the sequel to one of their most popular accessories; the HiRise 2. When I received the box in the mail, I could tell just by the...
