JBL Clip Review: Powerful audio performance with clip-on portability

My expectations are fairly low for portable Bluetooth speakers. They all usually sound about the same, don’t quite reach the volume levels you realistically need and the audio quality is generally lacking. It’s not surprising when the main focus is portability that these aspects end up being sacrificed in the process of getting there. In the case…

Spool Dock for iPhone review: Home decor meets electronic accessory

In a world of brushed aluminum and glass, your Apple devices and associated accessories can feel a little cold.

First look at Apple’s official leather iPhone 6 Plus case [Gallery]

The iPhone 6 isn’t quite here yet, but, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases started shipping out early and I was able to get my hands on. Like last year, Apple launched a range of bespoke, slim leather cases for its new models. And on first impressions, they look even better made than last year. There’s a really nice smooth surface on the exterior, with a…
