Review: HiRise 2 Deluxe, the best dock for any mobile device?

UPDATE #1: I’ve been told that Apple’s Lightning to USB-C cable works with the current microUSB clips, making it possible to use the new cable if you have your dock plugged into something like a 12-inch MacBook or a late 2016 MacBook Pro. UPDATE #2: Seems like I had a faulty clip 0, which would explain my clip not staying in place properly. For…

[Review] iQunix Edin MacBook stand

As someone who keeps a MacBook Pro connected to a Thunderbolt Display for a desktop setup, MacBook stands have been on my radar for awhile. Before trying the iQunix Edin stand, I’ve been resting my MacBook below my raised Thunderbolt Display. That’s been okay, but the MacBook Pro would get in the way of storing my keyboard underneath the display. When…

Review: Logitech BASE for iPad Pro

BASE from Logitech is the first accessory to take advantage of the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector for charging the iPad itself. Compatible with both the 12.9- and 9.7-inch models, the $99.99 stand is a simple, solid stand made of brushed aluminum that draws heavily from Apple’s trademark finish and takes advantage of the iPad Pro’s magnets to align…

Review: STM Prime backpack

For work, I carry around a lot of tech. As well as my iPhone, I’ll usually have my 13” MacBook Pro with me, as well as my iPad and current Android testing device. Carrying tech also means bringing along associated chargers and accessories, not to mention low-tech solutions like notebooks and pens. My daily carry is too much for most shoulder bags…

Review: BrydgeMini, the must have keyboard for iPad mini

For many, the iPad is a multi-purpose device. While a lot of work can be done with the touch screen alone, some people enjoy the ability to type on a physical keyboard. The BrydgeMini from Brydge lets you turn your iPad mini into something much more like a small MacBook. Like other iPad friendly keyboards, this one connects via Bluetooth. However,…

Review: Danny P. leather Wallet Case for iPhone

Our iPhones are as much fashion statements as they are utilities. Jony Ive and Co. sweat each and every design detail to give you the best balance of form and function. But for so many people, their iPhone ends up in a bulky, cheap or poorly made case that adds nothing to the design and in some instances detracts from the phone’s capabilities. Creating…

Review: Moshi iVisor Glass and iVisor Glass Privacy

If you want to keep your iPhone looking pristine, a screen protector is a good idea in order to shield the glass panel from scratches, scuffs and scrapes. As well as making a number of iPhone cases — some of which we’ve already taken a look at — accessory Moshi also offers a number of screen protectors for iOS devices. I tested out two of the…

Review: Moshi Kameleon kickstand case for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

For most people, the iPhone is already their most used electronic device for accessing information of any kind on the go or in the house. When the screen sizes jumped to 4.7- and 5.5-inches last year with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, it became my (and may others’) go-to media consumption device, too. If you’re watching a lot of video content on your Retina…

Review: Moshi iGlaze Armour for iPhone 6

As a piece of design, the iPhone is strikingly beautiful. Because of this, iPhone owners are often torn between protecting that beauty by covering the device in a rugged case or showing it off without such protection and risking accidental damage. The iGlaze Armour from Moshi is an iPhone 6 case that aims to appease both sets of users with its mix of…
