Waterfield Designs’ Rough Rider messenger bag – The ultimate in luxury, authentic leather bags [Review]

When it comes to quality bags and wallets, it’s hard to think of many brands that hit the spot – for me – like Waterfield Designs. Over at its store, SFBags.com, all offerings are quality, well-made and authentic. None more so than the Rough Rider messenger bag I’ve been rocking for the past month or so.

Review: be.ez LE Littoral Folio for iPad

If you venture out of the house with your iPad, you’re probably very aware of the need to protect your tablet with some kind of case in order to ensure your device’s safety when out and about.

Thermostat Here in the UK, or in Europe in general, we don’t have Nest. (Unless you count some of the Spanish natives who import it). For whatever reason, whether it’s because they can’t figure out the EU heating systems or because it’s difficult to re-engineer it, it hasn’t made its way yet.

Elgato’s EyeTV W gives you TV access on your iDevice without using any of your data – Hands On [CU Exposed 2014]

Last year at CU Exposed I checked out the EyeTV receiver for iPad and iPhone. It was great, but it had a flaw: It was 30-pin only, and thanks to Apple’s strict and expensive authorisation process, the Lightning version was delayed until the summer. This year, the EyeTV with Lightning connector was on show, and it wasn’t the model that caught my eye….
