Form meets function: Truffol Station 7 USB hub review

You might recall earlier in the year I reviewed a USB charging hub from Truffol: the Station 5. I loved most everything about it, from the striking design to the multiplicity of charging ports to its compact footprint saving space on my desk. Needless to say, when it came to using Truffol’s other USB hub, the Station 7, I had high expectations….

iCarbons skins for MacBook Review: Give your Mac some personality!

There’s one thing that is incredibly annoying about Apple’s portable Macs — they all look pretty much the same!

I own a Pebble, Nike+ FuelBand, and of course, Google Glass (referred to as simply “Glass” for short). Google Glass is something that interested me from the day it was announced back in 2012. It is hard to believe that it has…

Pebble smartwatch is awesome, and you should buy one [Belated Review]

Those that follow me on Twitter will most likely know that I love wearable technology. From the idea of smartwatches, to Google Glass, wearable technology is really something interesting, and is a market that has yet to be completely explored as of yet. There are a few products out at the moment, some good, some horrible (looking at you, Galaxy Gear). Each…

Keyprop: The iPhone stand you’ll always have with you

Every now and then, we like to highlight Kickstarter projects that relate to iOS that seem to have potential. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce to you to Keyprop. The idea is super simple: make an iPhone stand shaped and sized to resemble a key that you can hook onto your keyring and always have with you. The idea of clipping an iPhone stand…
