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] Leaf for Twitter: Beautifully designed, strong potential

Leaf’s notification UI after sending a message. One of my favorite iOS designers has always been Surenix. In the past, he’s created Power for Apple Watch, and two jailbreak themes (Ayecon and Ayeris). Now, he’s teamed up with developer iPlop on a gorgeous new Twitter app for the iOS App Store, Leaf. The best way for me to review Leaf is to compare…

Review: HOCO’s Third-Party Hermès knock-off band for Apple Watch

It’s been nine months since the Apple Watch went on sale and eight months since I’ve been wearing one (that’s because I originally ordered the Space Black one with the link bracelet). There has been some good (like: Siri, telling the time, some third-party apps) and some bad (most third-party apps, limited watch face customization) but there’s one…

iPhone 6 Plus – Unboxing and Hands On [video and gallery]

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus day has arrived, and mine arrived promptly at 9:30AM, thanks to an efficient UPS service. I’ve had enough time to gather my initial thoughts. To summarize, I’d say the design is fantastic except for the plastic antenna bands on the back. That said, I love the subtly curved glass at the edges of the front panel. They give the device a…

Stay connected better while driving with Mobile Home [Review]

If you drive a lot, such as myself, something you may do is use your phone while driving. We all tend to admit that it isn’t the safest thing to do, however we all (or at least, most of us) seem to do it anyway. With this, however, I found that I was keeping my eyes on the road more than before because I was using Siri instead of holding my phone in my…

Pebble Steel – The Smartwatch for Grown-Ups [Review]

When the Pebble first came to market as a publicly available and purchase-able product, around a year ago, its market was clear. It was a cool, plastic toy for nerds. It wasn’t the classiest of watches and had questionable build quality. But, its features were awesome enough that many of us tech-heads jumped up and down, got all excited, and couldn’t wait…
